If you suspect that you have fallen victim to a scam, we recommend following these guidelines. The following guidelines are designed to assist jobseekers in identifying and avoiding fraudulent tactics:
To ensure a secure job search experience on JobsLink, follow these simple yet important guidelines:
Established companies usually have email addresses with domains that match their websites. Beware of emails from generic addresses like Yahoo or Gmail. Ask for communication through a company domain email to confirm legitimacy.
Scammers often use email addresses that resemble legitimate company names but contain slight variations. Examples include "Info@company.net" instead of "Info@company.com" or misspelled names like "Info@companie.com."
Confirm that employers responding to your applications are offering the position you applied for to avoid bait-and-switch scams.
Exercise skepticism when encountering positions with high salaries, perks, or work-from-home flexibility. Ensure the job is salaried and has a physical base of operations for work-from-home roles.
Be wary of job offers with minimal or no interview process. Scammers often rely on chat services like Google Hangouts or WhatsApp for "work from home" positions.
JobsLink strictly prohibits companies from charging fees. Avoid any requests for payment, as they are likely scams (refer to "Types of Scams").
Do not engage in activities like wire transfers or cashing checks on behalf of a potential employer.
Be cautious if asked to open accounts or post ads for an employer you haven't met. These requests are likely from scammers and may put you at financial and legal risk.
Avoid any offers where you are asked to accept money before completing any tasks. Such requests are common in financial scams and can have legal consequences.
Legitimate companies will never ask you to perform financial transactions or money transfers, especially through services like Western Union, MoneyGram, BitCoin, or UPI platforms (PayTM, GooglePay, PhonePe). Beware of scammers seeking individuals to carry out fraudulent transactions.
Applying for jobs on JobsLink should never incur any fees. Avoid companies that charge application fees, registration fees, recruiter placement fees, interview reservations, training fees, resume formatting or rewriting fees, or background check fees. Background checks are usually paid for by employers or provided by government agencies at no cost to you.
