You are usually offered jobs, which usually consist of shipping packages that are stolen goods. The malicious actor usually provides a check for reimbursement and compensation that is linked to a non-existent account. You may be liable for cost of goods bought on your behalf.
A malicious actor contacts you via spam emails, then convinces the victim to work for their "fake" company, and once recruitment is completed, money mules will receive funds into their account which is stolen. Mules are then asked to send them to someone else.
FAKE CHECK SCAM
Most common fake check scam is the victim applies online and gets hired. They get a check and are told to use the money. Once the malicious actor gets the details, they use them instantly, leaving the victim without the money when the bank figures out.
BASIC BEST PRACTICES.
Ideal Practices to secure yourself and prevent fraud online.
- Create a Unique password for your account.
- Do not share password with anyone.
- Never provide sensitive personal information during the initial application process.
- When applying for jobs online, be cautious of recruiters who ask you to send information to an email address that is not associated with the company. Email domain should contain actual company name, like @zikorah.com
- Be extremely careful providing information such as your National ID number, Driver’s License number, Date of Birth, Passport Number or other sensitive information that might make it easy for a malicious actor to use that information to steal your identity. We recommend that you never place this type of information on your resume. However, please keep in mind that most companies will require your national ID number when filling out an actual application.
- If you are asked to fill out an application online, on that employer’s website, you can check to see if that page is secure (the address bar should read “https:”)
