What is a job scam?

Job scams typically manifest as fake job postings on social media and unverified job websites, promising lucrative opportunities. Scammers may also target victims through unsolicited text messages or messages on Facebook and WhatsApp, advertising non-existent job openings.

To perpetuate the fraud, scammers will often ask victims to share personal information, such as their phone number, or request small payments to secure a fake interview or gather more information about the fraudulent job.
