Expert advice on avoiding online fraud


How to be a safe Internet User :
Every Internet site in the world is facing the growing issue of fraudulent usage of information, and we want to work with users around the world to stop this practice. Please keep reading to learn more about the warning signs and what you can do.

Spam email is such a common occurrence today that you may think you know what to look for. But there are two types of email scams - what's known as 'phishing' and 'spoofing' . that can be more difficult to identify. Both practices concern fraudulent email where the 'from address' has been forged to make it appear as if it came from somewhere, or someone, other than the actual source. Below are the warning signs to look for:

What.s 'phishing' all about - and how do I spot it?
Phishing emails are used to fraudulently obtain personal identification and account information. They can also be used to lure the recipient into downloading malicious software. The message will often suggest there are issues with the recipient's account that requires immediate attention. A link will also be provided to a spoof website where the recipient will be asked to provide personal/account information or download malicious software. Monster will never ask you to download software in order to access your account or use our services.

How is it different than 'spoofing'?
Spoof emails often include a fraudulent offer of employment and/or the invitation to serve as a go-between for payment processing or money transfers. This scam is primarily directed at a general audience, but it can also reach Monster members who have included contact information on their resume. Like with phishing emails, the sender's address is often disguised.

Beware of fake Agencies/Employer seeking money through cash deposit or wire transfer /other sensitive information.
We have observed few instances reported to Monster that some agencies/individuals are seeking money from jobseeker against a job offer from well known Brands/Employers/Agencies, whose legitimacy / genuineness can be in question. Usually the contact person seeking such information is with unknown origin with foreign accent. Monster advises the users not to rely on the email/offers for employment which is seeking a consideration in cash or in any kind.

Educate yourself against Fraud/Scams :
We encourage you to read the following and make yourself aware of the warning signs of the most common kinds of Internet and Email frauds.

There are two types of email scams – 'phishing' and 'spoofing'. In both the cases, the 'from address' is forged to make it appear as if it came from a source that it actually did not come from.

How can you check if an employer or a recruiter is a fraud or genuine?
Below are a few things we can suggest you could try (you are encouraged to exhaust all possible ways, not just be limited to the following) to ascertain the legitimacy of the employers who contact you:

  • Have you heard the name of the company before?
  • Do you remember applying to this particular company or did the offer come unsolicited?
  • Does the domain name in their email address match the name of the company? For example if you get a job offer from XYZ Petroleum Company, and their email ID is xyzpetroleum@gmail.com or xyzpetroleum@yahoo.com then it’s a fake company. Real companies use their own domain name on their email, and do not use free email providers.
  • Search on Yahoo, Google or MSN to see if the company has a genuine website. Also check if other people have reported that the employer has been involved in job scams previously.
  • Note the country that company claims to be working in, and offering you a job in. Most fake companies offer scam jobs in Africa, Middle East, Asia, South America, and to a much smaller extent, US or Western Europe.
  • Find out if you need to pay the company for anything. If they ask you to pay - at first or even after some time - for visa, work permit or for travel, chances are it's a fake company.
