What is recruitment fraud?

Recruitment fraud is a sophisticated scheme wherein an individual not affiliated with the purported company misrepresents themselves as an employee or employment recruiter offering a fabricated employment opportunity. Recruitment fraud is often carried out through online services such as sham websites or fake e-mails claiming to be from a specific company though it can also occur using more traditional means such as the mail. The individuals running these scams often request recipients send personal information or pay fees as part of their sham recruiting scheme.

How do you identify recruitment fraud?

2. A fake job recruiter may ask you to book travel through a specific travel agency with assurances they will reimburse you for travel expenses.
