Sort It Update: Employment scams

April 27, 2017

Sort It! Deakin Legal Service has recently noticed a spike in employment scams being reported by students.

Finding a job is hard. But if you are offered a job without an in-person interview, you should take care to ensure the offer is being made by a genuine employer before you accept it, to avoid getting caught in a scam.

Scammers can use your details to commit identity theft. They can involve you in transferring stolen property or stolen money.

If you are concerned that you may have been involved with a scam, please contact Sort It! Deakin Legal Service for Students using the online query form.

If you are currently looking for a job, take some time to read the information provided on the Scamwatch website.
