Have you recently received a job offer via WhatsApp from someone claiming to be a Recruiter?
We want to alert you to an ongoing scam targeting job seekers.
Scammers are sending fake job offers with the aim of obtaining your personal information or asking for money through application fees. This scam is affecting several Recruitment agencies across the UK.
Please be aware that we never use WhatsApp for official communication, and we don't charge any application fees.
If you receive messages from these scammers, we recommend reporting and blocking them right away. Avoid responding or clicking on any links they may send and remain vigilant.
