As job opportunity scams are on the rise. Planate Antares Scam Solutions provides helpful tips and information to avoid being duped by these job related scams.
Online PR News – 16-July-2010 – – In today's world, where the economy is slack and it's getting hard for people to find jobs, scammers are making easy money by pretending to offer jobs to job seekers. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has already started working with other investigating agencies to bust these scams, however only a fraction of these scams have been busted so far. So to protect job seekers Planet Antares Scam Solutions has provided some tips to consider in order to avoid job related scams.
Beware of Work-at-Home Opportunities:
Typically, scammers will tell buyers that they can work at home in their pajamas or make a thousand dollars a month by filling out a few surveys. Moreover, these e-books, e-courses, membership sites etc. will only cost a few dollars. Usually, the only person to benefit from these “job opportunities” is the author. Make sure to do thorough research before spending hard earned money on work-at-home opportunities.
Don't Re-negotiate Job Offers:
Job seekers might come across potential employers who will examine the applicant’s work to determine their eligibility. However, watch out for “employers” asking for repeated work do to a repeated technical failure or any other repeat reasons or more work. The person offering the job is selling this work. The best option in such a case would be to move on and not send in additional materials.
Do Not Pay Fees:
Job openings that pay a high salary but require a payment upfront for registration fees, processing fees etc. are not legitimate employment. Job providers do not want nor require payment upfront to apply for an open position. Never pay to apply for a job.
Be Cautious of Unknown Websites:
With the intention of spreading Trojan horses and botnets, hackers are now disguising themselves as job providers. Some of these job search websites require a resume to be uploaded and/or toolbar to be downloaded. It is advised to stick with the well-known job search websites or do some in-depth research on an unknown website before using it. Or to play it safe, it is possible to e-mail a resume directly to the employers work e-mail address off of the company’s profile page on the job search website.
No matter how good an offer may be it is advise to evaluate it before applying immediately. Scam artists will always try to make things look appealing and force visitors to perform a certain task instantly without rationalizing. Last but not the least; remember, "If something is too good to be true, it probably is."
