It could be a scam if:
- The recruiter asks for money immediately.
- The agency makes promises of employment and guarantees of refunds.
- The agency charges fees for giving you a job lead.
- The recruiter is promoting "previously undisclosed" federal government jobs. All federal positions are announced to the public.
- The recruiter uses post office boxes, instead of office addresses.
- The employer has a contact email address that is not a primary domain. For example, an employer calling itself "Omega Inc." with a Yahoo! email address.
- You receive an email from a recruiter who "has a great opportunity at a major company," but can't seem to come up with a specific company name or a specific job.
- You receive an email from a person who wants you to "post your resume here," but they don't tell you that they may be getting paid a small referral fee if you do this.
- The ad refers you to a toll-free phone number. Often in most cases, an operator encourages you to buy a "valuable" booklet containing job listings, practice test questions, and tips for entrance exams.
- The toll-free numbers in the ad direct you to other pay-per-call numbers for more information. Under federal law, any solicitations for pay-per-call numbers must contain full disclosures about cost, and the soliciation must make clear if there is an affiliation with the federal government. You must be able to hang up before you incur charges.
- The ad makes an unbelieveable offer, such as "no experience necessary" or "earn money while you sleep." Employers usually use the term "entry level" when no experience is required.
- The recruiter requests your bank account number, social security number, or wants to "scan the ID (i.e. a driver's license).
- There are misspellings and grammatical mistakes in the job advertisement. Legitimate employers will usually have someone edit the ad for mistakes.
- There are key words listed that are tip-offs to fraud. Monster.com warns job-seekers against companies that use words such as "package-forwarding," "money transfers," "wiring funds," "eBay," and "PayPal." World Privacy Forum researchers also found that the term "Foreign Agent Agreement" often appears in contracts and email sent to job seekers.
