Now a days, we get a lot of job opportunity emails which turn out be spams later on.

Spammers are getting sophisticated and creative in their efforts to take advantage of job seekers. Sometimes, it’s even difficult for experts to tell the difference between what’s fake and what’s real.

It is extremely difficult to identify fake job ads but following can definitely help:

Contains no physical address or contact person

  • Offers handsome pay with not much responsibilities
  • Promises payment of salaries in cash
  • Asks you to open a new bank account to accept company wage to “test” a wire transfer service.
  • Asks for a small but refundable amount from you as security deposit.

It may not be enough but can definitely help.
