DISCLAIMER
BE AWARE : PHISHING SCAMS FOR EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Every job seeker should be aware of online recruitment fraud. Fictitious job postings, fraudulent job offers, and individuals purporting to be recruiters can defraud job seekers, commit financial crimes or steal identities.

Lokmanya Society takes this matter seriously and is actively working to reduce the likelihood of our brand being misrepresented as part of fraudulent activity. Job seekers interested in Lokmanya Society roles should know the following:

  • At no point will Lokmanya Society or anyone recruiting for Lokmanya Society ever asks for money, credit card, or bank account information to complete a job application or be considered for a job.
  • Lokmanya Society employees (including our recruitment teams) use email addresses that end in @lokmanyasociety.org
  • At no point will Lokmanya Society or anyone recruiting for Lokmanya Society ever asks for money, credit card, or bank account information to complete a job application or be considered for a job.
  • Communications you send directly to Lokmanya Society or anyone recruiting for Lokmanya Society should only go to email addresses ending in@lokmanyasociety.org

These fraudulent job postings or “recruiters” may ask job seekers for money, banking details, or other personally identifiable information.Recruiting scams have become more sophisticated and can appear as legitimate recruitment activities of reputable companies and often use third-party websites or direct email approaches. Caution should always be shown when sharing personal information and we hope that by highlighting these developments, unsuspecting job seekers will not be duped by these scams.

Generally, job seekers should watch out for: Incorrect domain names or email addresses: Check for misspellings of hiring companies or emails from domains that do not match the hiring company.Use of messaging services: Legitimate companies won’t conduct job interviews through messaging services like Google Hangouts, Yahoo Messenger, or Facebook Messenger. Unclear or broad job descriptions: Scammers use broad, vague job descriptions to capture a wide net of potential targets. Legitimate job ads will have a clear description of what your duties would be and will list the requirements for the job.The “dream” job offer: Extremely high compensation for a position that requires no skills or experience or job offers without any interview process… If it’s “too good to be true” it is likely fraudulent.

Requests for financial information: Be wary of any ask for money, credit card, or bank account information to complete a job application or create eligibility for a job. Requirements to purchase training or equipment: If a company wants you to pay for training materials or equipment before it will consider you for a job, it is likely fraudulent.
