Job Scam

WHAT IS A Job Scam?

These scams often involve online job ads seeking would-be male social escorts. Victims who respond are told they would be introduced to wealthy female clients, but only after they pay a registration fee. After payment, the scammers ask victims for other fees such as for insurance and membership before disappearing with the money.

In another variation of the job scam, scammers place online job ads for assistant purchasers, stock takers or participants for a system trial on popular classified websites like Gumtree. Participants are asked to reveal personal details like their names, IC numbers, phone numbers, phone security codes and one-time passwords (OTP). Information like this allows scammers to access your mobile phone lines to purchase online credits.
