In recent months there has been an increase in recruitment fraud involving scammers who post fraudulent jobs openings on employment-search websites, or who contact job-seekers who have posted their resumes publicly, and then conduct fake interviews to attempt to obtain personal information or money from the applicants.
How to identify Recruitment Fraud:
