Recommendations for a possible false job offer on our portal

  • Be wary of offers that ask for any kind of economic investment. However, it should be noted that in some cases you may be required to pay a fee for testing or as a commission for the intermediary. In these cases it may be justified, but never send money through services such as MoneyGram or Western Union. The safest way would be by bank transfer or PayPal.
  • DO NOT provide confidential or personal data that you have not indicated in your CV (telephone, address, …).
  • Do NOT provide bank or credit card information, and your Social Security number.
  • Be very careful when dealing with companies or people from foreign countries. Legal control in these matters is more complicated.

Remember, if you discover any message, email, offer that does not comply with our rules of use, please let us know as soon as possible!
