Coronavirus Scam to Put on Your Radar
We care about your online safety.
Authorities are reporting an increase in fraudulent activity related to the COVID-19 outbreak. One fraud aims to steal victims’ personal information through fake job postings from legitimate companies. Job hunting is stressful enough even without the added possibility of falling for a scam.
Scammers prey on a job seeker’s desperation, so it is important to use caution when responding to job postings.
These are the red flags:
Asking potential candidates to pay or transfer funds through any means as a precondition of interviews or employment, or authorize recruiters or agents to do so on our behalf
Conducting business in Google Hangouts or other chat tools
Asking anyone to purchase company equipment
