Forbes on Job Search Scams

There are people out there trying to scam job searchers – see this articles from Forbes Magazine


I see a number of posts on LinkedIn, for example, claiming to be recruiting for large US Companies via a recruitment agency. The agency is never one I’ve come across, the companies are often little known in the UK, and the groups in which they appear are usually the last place where a sensible company would look, due to their particular membership. What happens when you click their link, I do not know, but the whole thing screams “scam”.
