Beware of scammers while looking for employment in Canada.

Beware of scammers while looking for employment in Canada.
A couple of days back, I have met a couple of foreigners in a street who was scammed by some job consultants in their country. They were offered high profile jobs in Canada, but came to Canada in visitors visa. They were convinced that once they are here, their visa will get upgraded and a work visa will be received. Now they are here in Canada as visitors, realized their mistakes, but have no money to even go back to their country. This is another proof to show how important it is to meet with reliable consultancies or immigration lawyers like Max Berger in Toronto, http://maxberger.ca/ before moving to another country like Canada. People should be aware that these kind of things can happen to anyone and should take care.

RE: Beware of scammers while looking for employment in Canada.
Sadly scammers are on the increase, with more and more fictitious jobs appearing on job boards, and more and more unsuspecting job seekers being conned into parting with their hard earned money, or becoming victims of identity theft.

What is a job scam? A job scam occurs when a scammer poses as an employer or recruiter, and offers attractive employment opportunities which require that the job seeker pay money in advance. This is usually under the guise of work visas, travel expenses or background and or credit checks that are required for the job. Once the money has been paid over the scammer disappears, and the job seeker is left with no job, and out of pocket.

Whatever the scammer’s technique is and how they go about their modus operandi, their goal is always the same. To separate you from your cash, or to obtain your confidential personal information, that can be used in identity theft.

The problem is, that scammers are becoming more and more crafty in the way they operate, and it’s becoming more and more difficult to know what is a scam and what is a legitimate job opening.

It also appears that more and more often, the scammers are targeting job seekers from overseas, such as hopeful immigrants or contractors, where they use the lure of huge salaries, work permits and paid travel as ways of enticing the job seeker to part with their money.
