Lovely to wake up to a scam first thing in the morning but...here we are.
Northvolt does not use gmail accounts to send job offers, nor do they ask you to download #telegram. Which seems to be a popular app for scam artists to use.
Matilda Tidlund kindly showed me another site to report the fraud to: https://lnkd.in/gKsDYbhe.
If you are looking to find a job with NorthVolt, I strongly suggest that you go directly to their website: https://lnkd.in/gmUmBqft and apply there.
If they email a coorespondance, their domain will be @northvolt.com
Always notify the #victim company as well so they can take measures to eliminate this threat.
There isn't a picture of a person's face, but there is a picture there. No gramatical errors, has first and last name both in the email and the salutations, not asking me to download anything, the website linked actually has webinar in it and looks legitimate...interviews will be over zoom, has the disclaimer at the end...
Totally legit right?
The email #domainname ends with "Applytojob.com" which no company in their right mind would use.
The webinar link may very well be legitimate - but I'm not going to click on it until the company #verifies the employee works there (she does not). Sarah Garcia seems like a #legitimate name and isn't foreign (not that all foreign names are fraud!!! It's just a trend I've seen in scams and one that I keep an eye out for).
There's no telephone number - not a deal breaker but most #professionals have them.
No department name but a title is there.
The biggest flag in this case is the domain name. The company uses AILLife.com and this simply doesn't match.
American Income Life Insurance Company will not contact you with an email domain of "applytojob(dot)com"
I was contacted about an interview with this legitimate company by a scam artist posing to be from their facility. Upon calling the company, this person could not be verified as an employee and the email domain was not a match.
If you are looking for a job with American Income, please be sure that to go to their website: https://lnkd.in/d4wie8Zu and apply directly there.
Any incoming emails from AIL will have the domain "AILlife.com "
As always, if you are the victim of a scam or believe you have encountered a scam artist, please report it to ReportFraud.ftc.gov/#/ and notify the company they are posing as.
Rackspace Technology has officially gotten back with me and the email I received was, indeed, a #scam. I must admit it was the most convincing scam I've come across thus far.
If you are interested in a job with Rackspace Technology please go to their website: https://rackspace.jobs/
Here are the tips to look for when applying for and receiving correspondance from Rackspace:
-Rackspace Technology recruiters will arrange all interviews and job offers via an official “Rackspace.com / Rackspace.co.uk” email address utilizing Lever and Zoom - Please exercise caution if you choose to provide personal information via email or other social media channels. Do not click any links that you do not recognize -Applicants should visit our career page (https://rackspace.jobs/) to see all postings and/or apply on this website only -Job Postings on LinkedIn etc. will also route you to our careers page
In addition, Rackspace Technology will never ask for any financial commitment from a candidate as a pre-employment requirement.
As always, if you believe you have been the victim of a scam or received a fraudulant offer - please report it to ReportFraud.ftc.gov/#/ and notify the company they are posing as.
Those companies are just as much as a victim as we are, their reputation, their name, and their brand is at stake.
I thought I would pick this message apart and give a few tips on the flags I got with it.
That's my #ScamDissection for the day.
I hope it helps others who are like me, and desperately looking for work.
Schoenfelder Renovations, Inc. is NOT hiring for Data Entry positions.
I received an alert through Matched jobs and called the number on their website to confirm (952-345-2900). They stated there is no such job available. HOWEVER! If you are interested in a position with them go to https://lnkd.in/gCzeurtM
They currently have two positions available: Project Manager, Site Supervisor
They are hiring in multiple regions of the country; you can see this under "Areas Served" on their site.
Best of luck to you #Jobseekers!!
Hi All, there is a SCAM going around for Mölnlycke Health Care. The scammers are using Google Hangouts to interview you, then send you a check for software and equipment to work from home. They use the legitimate company from Sweden URL, website; https://www.molnlycke.com/ One scammer is using [email protected] Mr. Martin Lexa -Mölnlycke Health Care Executive VP, Human Resources & Corporate communications. That is not real. The head of their HR has assured me this is a scam. Do not deposit any checks sent by fed ex from this company. The police believe this is a front group for ISIS. #police #checks #humanresources #corporatecommunications #assurance #scamalert
Watch out for google hangout interviews there a scam all alike and want you to pay for software before they send you the equipment you need so far 4 people used the same script so beware
Good Morning Jobcasers and Happy Monday!
As you set about your day hunting for work, do not fall victim to the "Urgent Loan" scam. (see attached image)
This seems highly suspicious.
This post has been reported and I encourage no one in the Jobcase community to respond to this person or "apply" for a loan through "Eric Franklin".
Please continue to be safe and vigilant. Sadly, on EVERY job board you will find scammers who are attempting to separate you from your hard earned money. As enticing as a loan might be to help you in your time of financial need, this is not the way to go about getting one. Even if it was legitimate, which it is not, you do not need to amass debt with no way to pay it off.
Be good to one another, have each others backs. Together we can prevent people from taking advantage of our community.
Has anyone eles recv'd an email from '[email protected],com' claiming to have found my info/resume on career builder. Then they proceed to give vaugue generalities, compliments & $$ for a position- no concrete info or company name. They then ask for my full name and home/main phone number? All of this is on my resume...so what the heck is this? Ive never seen any address that is @mail.com. Anyone else have this happening or any suggestions? Thanks so much...doing this looking for unemployment dance over a year now, still looking everyday...so tired but keeping the pedal down. My wife is having more complications. She try's to help me as she can, but worried about her. She has been surviving cancer for 4 years and she is having a lot of pain and complications from treatment. Her numbers are good so we are thankful! She is the writer in the family... however she has a lot of chemo fog and so she is frustrated.... anyway as Churchill said "When going through Hell, just keep going". So onward we continue. Anyway, this email seems suspicious - anyone have any info - is this a scam, malware or phishing? Thanks & good luck to everyone, Wade.
