Be cyberaware for fake job postings and fake employment offers


Tags : 


It has been brought to my attention that there are scammers targeting those who may have posted their resumes online to the various job portals and who are actively seeking new employment opportunities.

I had heard about this previously when another recruiting agency had posted a similar bulletin – however this time they have decided to pretend to be me.


I am attaching a sample of the generic email to this bulletin that these scammers are promoting for nefarious intent and purposes. (PLEASE SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS ARTICLE)

I wanted to send out this bulletin and request that you repost, share and pass it along to everyone you know. This affects all of us.


If you continue responding to them – they even go as far as sending you a Labour Agreement with a Bogus Employer signature and requesting that you give them a signature. And they are getting sneakier and cleverer – even going to the degree of making sure that the bogus employer signature matches a profile that is applicable to the industry that the applicant is applying for.


There are other Warning Red Flags, such as:

  1. Asking that you only contact them through email – this is a major red flag
  2. Email Address – Verify that the email address that they are contacting you with matches the domain of the URL that they are saying is the company contacting you. In the sample I have attached – you can clearly seeing the company is at recrutingnow.ca yet the email address is hr.manager@recruitingnow.info – that’s your second red flag.
  3. Most importantly, our recruitment process does not allow any of our recruiters to send out a job offer or labour agreement via email if you haven’t had an interview with both the recruitment agency and the client who would be hiring you. We also would have requested a full BackGround Check at the same time and all of our Background checks are officially carried out through Sterling Talent Solutions. Even if location or timing is an issue – then a face to face would be carried out via Skype interview – but I can assure you we would never send out a job offer without going through a strict screening process that far extends past email only communication.
    To have one email sent to you – followed up by a job offer – is a major red flag to watch out for. When in doubt, call or email the agency – AND do the research that I have mentioned in this bulletin.

This scam and fraudulent behaviour was brought to my attention by some very smart and diligent recent university graduates. Scammers beware – these future generations are very smart, so do not take them for granted. And as recruiters – we also take our roles very seriously in promoting and encouraging those individuals who are seeing new career opportunities and not by taking advantage of them.


To say I am feeling angry right now is putting it mildly – but we too can use the internet to bring attention to what YOU are doing.  Education is the key – and being aware and spreading the word is how we do it together. The internet is not a bad thing – it’s just there are some bad people using it.
