Immigrants seeking for a job in Canada should be careful considering fake job offers and scams specially coming through emails.
People are being duped by the fraud creatures in the name of offering jobs.
The working of scam
Applicants are attracted by showing the name of large companies, whereas the job actually is meant for a small one.
Once an applicant is assured of working with a big profile, the fraudsters ask them to deposit some money for further processing. They may tell the applicant that the money is needed to get work permit and process the application at further steps.
The next step would be to ask a larger amount needed for a high level of processing, flight tickets and even handling charges which is going to be quite high.
All this while the fraudsters must have gained enough confidence from you and it rather becomes an easy task for them to suck money out of your pocket.
An applicant may get deceptive due to an email, offer letter (scanned one) and many more documents which are as true as the real one.
They are also suggested to contact a given travel agent and firms into immigration and the employer they are supposedly going to work with, when they do so they realize that everything is fake.
Distinguishing real job offers from bogus ones
On the face of it, the most difficult task is to differentiate between a bogus job offer and the real one, because they look the same. But when you verify closely you will see the mail very close to a recent scam which was prominently known by people.
Most of the times, the fraudsters are not a part of Canada, in fact they run the operations from living outside the country so that they are not caught.
The learning for the job seekers
Those who want to get a job are desperate and are in a dying need, but, they should be aware of any notification related to “lottery win”, spam emails and any offer which seems to be larger than life. Anything that seems to be more than true should actually not be believed.
The companies which are supposedly mentioned in the emails are actually into existence but the offers could be fake.
The suggestions for the job seekers
Job seekers must verify the vacancy by visiting the website of company, by calling up the Head Office and HR Department and also be verifying with any pre-known person. One should never get attracted by a flashy advertisement.
Being cheated by a fraudster could be quite common when an applicant is not too aware of the happenings around. It is always advisable to verify at every possible level before trusting an individual or an agency and transferring any amount of money whether big or small. Even though a victim reports the matter to the legal body, he can’t expect too much out of it because these fraudster change their identity every time they plan a game.
