Latest fake job scams
Senior executives offering jobs abroad requiring visas
Scammers pretending to be senior executives (e.g., Chief Financial Officer) of financial companies send unsolicited messages to victims offering lucrative positions in an overseas country. Victims are asked to pay for their work visa as part of the recruitment or onboarding process. This money is never returned, and the job doesn't exist.
Payments from victims for better jobs
Victims are asked if they want to make payments during the recruitment process to secure better, higher-paying roles at the company. This money is never returned; the better role and job are fake.
Wiring proceeds of a check to set up home office equipment
Victims are sent a check to deposit in their bank account and then asked to immediately wire the same or similar amount to a vendor via a money service business (e.g., Western Union), presumably to set up their home office. The received check is counterfeit, and the personal funds the victim wired are lost.
