Someone just offered me a job and deleted their account here immediately after the get my number to contact me. And that person also change their number the day after. Is it a scam?
Yes, it is a scam! Did you give them your bank information or any type of payment?
Yes. When people post "job" on community page, they are a scam. If you look at their profile, nothing is filled out. Jobcase removed the profile meaning, it was probably a fake one. Search for job on the Jobcase's job section by navigating to the top and click on jobs. Here you can search by your location or key words. Good luck and keep posting to the community page. You experience helps everyone.
I can pretty much guarantee that all these "work from home" jobs that pay more than $18.00 an hour without experience are a scam. It usually works like this. They agree to hire you and also agree to send you a check overnight to pay for computer equipment, etc. needed for the position that you can purchase with the funds. Sounds great, right?!
The only issue is they say you can only order from one on-line store for the equipment and you have to order it right away as soon as you get the check. They will call you when you get the check as they know when FedEx delivers it.
You think you just got an $8,000.00 check to buy the best computer equipment, that you can only purchase from their authorized on-line store that you never heard of.
So, you do what you are told. You deposit the check and immediately "purchase" as close to $8,000.00 in computer hardware, etc. as you were told to do.
After you place the order you notice that everything looks great as your account has a "pending" deposit for $8,000.00 and you also notice that you spent $4000.00 (all that you had legitimately had in savings) goes out to pay for your purchased hardware.
You wait for several days and you hear nothing, expecting your computer hardware to arrive so you can start your job. You know your bank account was charged for $4,000.00, then you get a call from your bank to inform you that your $8,000.00 deposit was fraud and will not be deposited.
You hang up the phone, log into your account and verify that the $8,000.00 deposit was indeed reversed and you were assessed fees. Next, you notice that your life savings of $4,000.00 is also missing.
You call your bank and speak to someone who isn't interested in really helping you, but is happy to give you fraud forms to fill out and inform you that it could take up to 90 days for an answer if you will get a refund on the fraudulent charges YOU made on YOUR account. You finally get an answer after weeks and weeks of worrying and unable to pay any bill, sleep at night or feed your kids, and the answer is that because you paid with a debit card you do not qualify for fraud protection as you otherwise would have if you paid with a credit card from a major company like American Express or Visa, etc., not associated with you bank, i.e, a debit card.
This is the scam folks. Doubt me? I see this happen all the time and I look for these scammmers and thieves and trap them. I have the fraudulent checks, offers, and instructions from the perps to prove this.
Do yourself a favor and if an offer sounds too good to be true, 99.99% of the time it is. Also, most people who are scammed never tell anyone because they feel so embarrassed, which I can't understand. A victim of a crime should always report it and don't be ashamed as anyone who is desperate for a job is susceptible to being scammed based on their own personal desperate situation.
Be safe, be wise, and question everything.
Can’t even look for a job anymore without someone trying to scam you. 😡
Never give your personal information to anyone. Unfortunately, they are people who find it easier to Scam them get a job. Realizing they are taking advantage of others and causing pain. If it sounds too good to be true. It Is! Best of Luck
Don’t do it!!!!
Yes it is.
Hows anyone ever used LinkedIn or indeed??
I use indeed and LinkedIn. I've been getting some good offers. They actually gave me some good advice. I haven't updated my resume in a while cause I've been at the same job for a long time. They said I need to tell them about my previous jobs and experience but they said you should always write more about what you want out of a job and about yourself ...so I took their advice. Believe it it helped out alot
