Employment Advice - Avoiding Those Too Good to Be True Employment Scams


With so many job seekers out on the job market the door has be swung wide open for a variety of employment scams and a lot of job seekers have probably already fallen victim to them. With their job search seeming to be endless they become easy targets for unscrupulous people who prey on those who seem weak and vulnerable. Here are a few things that might help you to protect yourself against these pariahs.

If you see a job that you might be interested in the first thing you should do is to see if there is some sort of up front fee they are wanting to charge you. This should include the need to buy materials or software they claim that you will need to be able to do the job successfully.

There some exceptions to this but most of the time and I mean 99.9% of the time this is going to be a scam. You get paid to work, you don't pay someone else to give you a job. So never send any amount of money for a job opportunity unless you have checked the company out with the Better Business Bureau first.

Be wary of large amounts of pay being offered, especially if the claim is that the work is extremely easy, the hours are very flexible and any other too good to be true claims. Because usually when it sounds too good to be true it generally is.

Also be wary of any employment ad that talks only about how great the money is and how easy and great the work is, but they don't even mention anything about the actual work it is and what your job duties would be for this job. A real employer is going to talk more about the job and the qualifications required because they only want to attract the attention of the most qualified for their job opening.

Make sure that the company that is offering the job doesn't appear to be anonymous. A legit company is going to have a variety of different ways that they can be contacted such as by email, by phone and by snail mail. If you find a job offer that doesn't offer a variety of ways to be contacted you should probably stay away from this job offer.

If there is a website, make sure that it's a site that actually has content in other words that it has a real homepage, has a variety of pages that give you information about the company and what they do, what they offer, etc. You can't trust a company that has a website that only consists of information about the job offer and no other links to other pages.

It is also not a good idea for you to respond to job offers where the company has a contact email that is a free email service like yahoo.com for instance. There are nothing wrong with these free email services it's just that normally a true business is not going to use one for official business.

Another thing to be a little wary of is giving a possible employer samples of your work. Although a majority of the scams are to get your money, there are other scams that simply want to get work out of people for free. It's true if you are trying to get a writing job that a legit company is going to want samples of your work but they are not going to require a lot of samples and they generally are not going to ask you to send in a made to order sample. If you are asked for this, you are being scammed to work for free and once they have what they want you'll never hear from them again.

Forex Signals ES a group of experienced individuals who gathered under the methodology of the 'technical analysis' in trade, extracted from 16 years of negotiation of the financial markets. We do not count on "analysis of the base. For what? They are just a waste of time to spend hours, days and months that followed the price of the shares on the news and read the reports and accounts of the company. There are even times where you will develop theories on the market and then be surprised that it works only once and that's it! I couldn't even have economists accepted this beautiful experience and long on Forex trading on the basis of the theory of the firm included projected increase. www.forexsignals.es
