We have been made aware of some scammer activity on our platform recently. We wanted to take a moment to inform and caution everyone about fraudulent job postings that have been appearing.
We've observed a trend where scammers post jobs and include links to external sites, asking our users to click on those links and provide personal information. We want to be clear: These links are NOT affiliated with our platform in any way.
Let's re-emphasize that point: If you see a job posting directing you to an external link and asking for your personal information, please know that these are not from legitimate employers. We urge you not to visit these links or provide any personal details.
1. Do not click on external links: Legitimate employers will communicate with you directly on our platform and will not ask you to click on an external link to apply for a job or provide personal information.
2. Never share personal information off-platform: This includes things like your full name, address, Social Security or national insurance number, bank details, or other sensitive information. Legitimate employers will respect your privacy and understand that this kind of information is shared at the appropriate time in the hiring process.
3. Use our reporting feature: If you see a suspicious job posting, please use our "Report" feature to let us know. We'll investigate the report and take the necessary actions to protect our community.
Our number one priority is keeping our community safe and secure. We are currently working tirelessly behind the scenes to enhance our security measures and detect fraudulent activities more effectively.
We strongly encourage everyone to continue using our platform's secure communication channels when discussing job opportunities. This helps keep your information safe and helps us track and combat fraudulent activities.
Remember, you are the first line of defence against scams. We all have a part to play in creating a safe, trusted community. Let's continue working together to ensure our platform remains secure and reliable for everyone.
Thank you for your attention and your continued trust in our platform. We're here to support you, so if you have any concerns or questions, don't hesitate to reach out to our support team.
Stay safe and happy job hunting!
