Keep your information safe and please, PLEASE never call any of these bogus accounts messaging you with a phone number only to call for more job info. Any reputable employer will have all the info you need readily available and in writing.

This is an actual scam board that was sent to one of our team members.

Tangible abilities are only one factor hiring managers evaluate to determine who gets the job.
Does your resume portray the hard AND soft skills you bring to the table?

I remember I had this job that offered VTO almost daily to employees. I thought it was the best thing ever🙌🏾. I mean....who wouldn't want to leave work early?! Especially if you have something important to do that day, or you may have finished your work early and think that you deserve to leave early! Don't let the weather be nice (80 degrees ☀️🌈or higher), you know that's heaven to us "Wisconsinites" lol. Everything is sweet until you see that Paycheck 😳😮😮 Your first thought is usually; where is the rest of my money? lol and then it hits you…BOOM.. its all of the Voluntary time you took advantage of🤑 last pay period! Have anyone ever set themselves up like this?!!! #Curious #Tips #Advice #Benefits

#ScamDissection #Scam Email number twwwwwwwo: This one is arguably the hardest one I've come across.

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?

Wrong.

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.

If you believe you have been the #victim of a #fraud or have been contacted by a fraudulant party, please remember to report it to ReportFraud.ftc.gov/#/ and the company that is being victimized.
