RAH attempts to provide the safest possible environment for job searching and career management --- however, all online companies are susceptible to possible scams and fraud, and unfortunately, RAH is no exception. To help you avoid scams and fraudulent job postings, we ask that you keep the following common scams and simple precautions in mind when dealing with any potential employer you encounter online or via email.
Phishing scams use cleverly designed emails and fake websites to convince victims to voluntarily give up sensitive information. The emails are designed to appear as though they were sent by a legitimate company that the victim may already do business with, and often say that there are issues with the recipient's account that require immediate attention. The phishing email will provide links that will lead the victim to a nearly-identical but false company website. The false website will ask for sensitive information such as user names, passwords, account numbers, social security numbers and the like.
Tip: NEVER click on a link in an email and ALWAYS open a new browser window and type the company website address yourself. When in doubt, contact the company directly. RAH does not require any sensitive information from you to search for jobs. We will not ask you via email or other communication to provide us with any sensitive information.
Check Cashing Scam
The check cashing scam involves a scam artist attempting to convince job-seekers to "process" payments on behalf of his company, with the promise that the victim can keep a percentage of the transactions he processes. The scammer may use legitimate-looking legal contracts and other forged documents to assure the victim of his credibility.
The scammer sends fraudulent (but seemingly legitimate) checks, money orders, and wire deposits to the victim's bank account, and the victim forwards a large amount of money to the scammer, keeping a small percentage for his "cut." When the victim's bank learns that the transactions are fraudulent, the bank will reverse the deposits and hold the victim liable for the lost money.
The reshipping scam, like the check cashing scam, may involve a scammer using false documents to reassure the victim of his legitimacy. The scam is simple: the scammer is trying to hide his own identity in a chain of illegal activities; he "hires" the victim to receive packages at his home, repackage them, and ship them to a third party. When the victim performs these tasks, he becomes guilty of receiving and shipping stolen or illegal property, with the return shipping label leading the police directly to the victim.
Simple precautions may include but are not limited to the following:
Use caution with any potential employer who:
- Offers employment without an interview.
- Charges a fee to employ you
- Only offers vague job descriptions
- Guarantees placement
- Exaggerates wages or benefits
- Uses only post office box addresses
Provide your social security number or any other sensitive information to any employer until you are sure they are legitimate. Provide credit card or banking information to any prospective employer.
If at any time you feel that you have been the victim of a scam, please contact the America's Job Exchange Customer Care and file a report to concern department in your country.
