Employee Benefits And Corporate Discount Scam



Employee Benefits Scam: How It Works

Many people are willing to relocate in search of a new job and a great future in their industry. Maybe you are one of them. However, be aware of this scam on the rise, or make everyone you know aware of it. The Employee Benefits and Corporate Discount Scam is targeting these days victims who find great jobs but in a different city. How does the scam work?

Watch the video below to see in detail the Corporate Discount Scam exposed:

You post your resume online and a few days later receive a call from a well-known company’s HR department, located in a different city. They saw your resume and thought you would make a great candidate for a position they are offering.

For you, it’s a dream job with a great company that pays better than you were expecting. Just like that, you think, your unemployment woes are through.



They ask a few basic questions and then say they’d like to do a follow-up interview on Zoom, Skype or Google Hangouts. You do it. They look great: suits, ties, and professionally equipped in the office. You like them, they like you. It seems like you aced the interview.

They say they would hire you, but there is one small problem, for which they are willing to make a sacrifice. They can’t pay for your plane ticket, but they can offer you their corporate discount rate at half price, as well as other small preliminary employee benefits.

If you are interested, they will book the flight internally to get you the 50% discount, as soon as you give them the payment information. Unfortunately, there will be no plane ticket waiting for you. Sure, you will see charges on your card–but it won’t be for anything you need.

You may not be getting on a plane, but you were taken for a ride. It is one of the most prevalent job scams out there.



 

How To Avoid The Corporate Discount Scam

First of all, no prospective employee will ask for your credit card information. But if you insist on finding out for sure, look up the company’s number in the phone book and call their HR department and see if it was them. Chances are, it wasn’t.

You may not have your dream job, but at least you still have your credit intact.

    First of all, congratulations on your Written Invitation!

    It is my pleasure to inform you that we currently have an employer for you who has declared a deadline and expects the documents to be submitted before its expiration.

    The deadline to submit the documents is 8 days from the day you received the invitation.

    Please note that the observation of the deadline is extremely important and you need to keep it by all means. Failing to meet the deadline automatically leads to losing the job position for you and financial losses for our agency. Please read all my e-mails very carefully.

    This is the list of requirements that you must have in order to continue with your application (Employment Pass application):

    1/ CV (Europass)
    2/ Motivation Letter

    6/ National Insurance Number application form

    All the documents that you have, like your CV, Diploma or any Certificates if you have, please send them at office@seacareersjobs.com (scanned or photographed).

    NOTE: Usually, a lot of the applicants are missing some of the forms but don’t worry about that. I am your account manager and I will make sure that you will prepare everything on time in order to meet the deadline successfully.

    We are collaborating with the specialized Documents Processing Company and they are preparing the documents for our applicants for years (with a discount). They prepare everything for you: CV European format, Work permit, Medical/GP form, National insurance form, Motivation letter with an excellent quality according to the European employment application standards for the charge of 28.30 Euros.

    Moreover, the preparation takes just 2 days and it allows adherence to even the shortest deadlines. In our experience, this is the best way if you would like to keep your application as successful as by now.

    If you cannot manage it by yourself, we advise you to arrange your Employment Pass application with the Documents Processing Company I have referred you to earlier so the rest of the forms will be ready for you too.

    Then they asked me to go to a website that provides this fake- beware!!!

  3. A job should pay YOU. You should NEVER have to pay a job.

    Beware of your emotions, scammers often use them against you.

    I almost fell for a scam like this. But luckily my skepticism kicked in.

    The scam was from Bankers Insurance. Basically one has to pay for expensive training and even "trade shows" in other countries. Not to mention other extraordinary claims from them. And of course I would have to drive around on MY OWN gas money and that is no guarantee that I would get paid because pay is based on commission. Plus their offices seem rented. Red flags everywhere, and not to mention I "got the job" too easily without any effort.

    I took a better job at an Office Depot. Best part: pay was guaranteed.
