Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has warned that job scams for working in Canada are on the rise. Fraudsters are using more and more sophisticated methods and hundreds of people are victims of fraud. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Learn how to spot scams and protect yourself ,“If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Learn how to spot scams and protect yourself”), has been warning the Canadian Immigration Department.

In recent weeks we have seen an increase in scams in the expatriate world. Why is this happening? There are many reasons why people get deceived. We would all like to believe that we can get something done quickly and easily and if it’s free and simple, all the better, so we can be more gullible when we hear that talk. In many cases, people become victims of scams because of the psychological techniques used by scammers. In this article, you’ll learn about the most common frauds and scams and how to recognize the warning signs that a job offer may be fraudulent. Scammers target people in a variety of ways: Be careful about the information you receive via email or phone, especially through social media.

  1. You received a job offer you never applied for:
    1. If you haven’t applied for the job, it’s probably not genuine. However, if a company contacts you first to offer a job, ask them how they found your contact, if someone recommended you, if they reviewed your resume, etc.
    1. Ask for full details of the job offer and see if you meet the requirements.
    1. Be sure to verify information about the organization. Try to get the address, contact information etc. Check if the company is legit.
    1. Confirm if the company is indeed hiring for the position they are offering you.
  2. You received one ad per line and want to apply:
    1. The first step is to assess where the ad was posted, whether it’s the company’s official website, the company’s profile on LinkedIn, or maybe you posted it on Facebook for example. Keep in mind that Facebook is often used to dupe people, especially if the ad is posted by an individual and not a business.
    1. Review the ad to see if it includes information about the company, features, requirements, etc. Reputable companies always advertise credibly and professionally.
    1. Check whether the offered salary makes sense for that job, if it is much higher than the average it should raise doubts. You can check the average salary on the Internet.
    1. If from the requirements it appears that anyone can be a good candidate (over 18 years of age, no experience required, etc.), it is very likely that this is not realistic.
    1. If the company guarantees that a work permit will be issued, you can be sure that it is a scam. The decision on a work permit is at the discretion of an immigration officer and no one can guarantee it.

Remember that a job offer is the first thing you need, but to be able to work legally in Canada, you must always have a work permit issued by the Department of Immigration. if someone Provides incredible results, think twice before continuing. If it’s too good to be true, it probably isn’t. I also invite you to read our article “How to Identify a Legitimate Company” We will publish it next week.
