How To Identify Fake Human Resource Appointment Letters

It becomes very hard to identify fake jobs and appointment letters that drops in your inbox supposedly from global companies when they promise mouth watering offers, commissions and sometimes covering your travel expenses. This looks like something everyone one wants. It becomes harder to resist when jobs are not available.

Targets of these fraudsters are usually:
1. New graduates.
2. Old professionals who find it difficult to change jobs as a result of jobs.
3. Economies with high unemployment rate.
4. People who are careless with their email addresses.
5. People who register on fake job sites etc.

How to identify:
1. Request for money before employment is guaranteed.
2. Request that you engage a fake lawyer.
3. Asking you to send bank details and or pin.
4. Request to allow them book your traveling expenses or hotels.
5. Mouth watering offers beyond your qualification.
6. Wrong company email. If it looks real, go to the sender details where the "from", "to" and "cc" is located and click details to be sure the email has not been cloned to reflect a real company email.
7. They usually promise oil and gas jobs, engineering jobs, off shore jobs in areas like Dubai, Shell, Chevron etc.

1. They might get your name right.
2. They may know your qualifications, age and skills.
3. They may have your address and even a friends name as referral.
4. Usually they have your resume or CV.

Questions to ask yourself:
1. Did you apply to the company?
Look through the sent folder of your email to track if you applied for any job in the said company. If it's not there, try and recall if you applied on the organizations career page.

2. Did you attend any interview with them?
This could be in form of phone interviews, Skype calls or face to face. If any of this was not done, then be weary.

3. Do you you have any relative or friend in the company that may have referred you?
If you do, at this point, you may have to place a call to the person for confirmation.
