Security Job Training Scam: How It Works

There are a plethora of employment scams out there. From work from home jobs to fake recruiting on Linkedin, many fraudulent practices are making their rounds these days, so beware. The latest? The Security Job Training scheme. Let’s take a look at how it works and how it could be avoided.

The scam is being perpetrated by bogus companies advertising alleged security jobs. Once they see you are interested — seeing your resume online — they require you to undergo an unnecessary training course to get a license. The cost is from $300 up to $1,500. While this training may be legitimate, it could not be mandatory to get the job, but the ’employers’ may have a commission to receive. In other cases, the training class does not even exist. This situation is explained very well in the Job Prerequisite Course Scam.

The trick they use is in the contract that you sign before starting the training. In there, it is mentioned that employment is not guaranteed. After not getting the job (surprise!), the victim is called up again for a new opportunity at the same security job, but now they must bring $50, needed for background checking (see the Background Check For Employment Scam here). The applicants don’t get the job this time, either. They pay the fees but never get hired.

Similarly, beware of a couple of employment schemes that are going around these days: Administrative Job Offer Scam and the Walmart Job Opportunity.
