Jobseekers Fraud Alert (list of scammers)

There is an increased rate of fraud to jobseekers in Dubai and most of the time authorities can’t arrest the fraudsters due to lack of evidence. Due to the increased number of jobseekers being victims of Fraud by agencies claiming to offer them Job opportunities.

Examples of how an intelligent person falls a victim of these scammers: By searching online, you might end up in a very nice looking website and you will find a list of adequately named job positions, such as “Accountant,” “Project Manager,” “Human Resources Manager,” etc. You might then think to yourself, “Great! That’s exactly what I want to do.” So, you register, spend time filling out all the forms, upload your CV, and click “Apply”

Two days later, you receive a very positively sounding email that is written in a way to make you think that your application has been successful and all that is stopping you from securing a job interview and hopefully a job offer from Dubai is a relatively small fee that you have to pay to this website from which you applied for this job!

Many job seekers don’t fully understand the role of recruitment agencies. Recruitment agencies are not employers. Recruitment agencies work for employers. They help employers fill vacancies, and when they do that successfully, they get paid by the employer, not the job seeker.

Remember, job seekers are sellers and employers are buyers. In most cases, commission to the broker is paid by the buyer; with recruitment agencies and hiring there is no exception.

But because most job seekers are unaware of this relationship, they end up being taken advantage of.

Here’s how you might fall for a scam recruitment agency or agent:

You go to a popular online classifieds or a newspaper in Dubai and you advertise in the jobs wanted section. You put your email or your telephone number. Then, you receive a call from somebody who tells you that they are interested in getting you hired. You will naturally get excited and do as they say. Then, sooner or later, they will ask you to pay them!

At this point, you should realize that they are trying to scam you, and you should go wild on them.
