Online job frauds just got bigger, smarter and more authentic. With so many people currently looking for Jobs, there are more scammers out there than ever. It’s unfortunate that unscrupulous people try to prey on those who are looking for legitimate jobs, but it does happen. Online job boards and classified ads can be used by people posing as hiring companies, so it’s important to be aware and cautious when you’re looking for a job.

A new batch of fake job offer letter emails specifically targets young IT professionals, and is being circulated by spammers.
Recently, i came across a mail pretending from TATA company having subject line: Your Resume has been selected.

The emails, promising job-seekers interview calls, carry seemingly authentic employee codes, hologram of the companies and even the designation of the persons who have sent the letters.

The mails direct, interested employees to deposit a nominal fee as ‘refundable interview security’ in a specific bank and also include the account number to make it look real.

Kindly take additional care, when you come across such fraudulent mails.
