Best Practices to Avoid Recruitment Fraud

Recruitment Fraud Notice 

We have recently become aware of multiple reports of individuals claiming to represent our company, and we want to ensure that our clients and candidates are well-informed on how to identify and respond to any incidents that may compromise their safety or privacy. By making you aware of this, we hope to avoid and ultimately stop victims from falling for this fraudulent activity.

*Please do not provide any personal or financial information and do not send any money to anyone you suspect of recruitment fraud. 

How to Identify Recruitment Fraud:

  • You receive a message on WhatsApp, or another online messaging service or platform.
  • You are asked to send any sort of payment (We will never request payment from candidates.)
  • Our email communication will only ever come from a @striverecruitment.ca domain. We will never contact you through Gmail, Outlook or any other free online mail service.
  • The job posting is not posted on the official company’s website (If you have doubts about the legitimacy of a job posting, call the company directly to confirm its legitimacy).
  • You receive frequent and aggressive calls, attempting to pressure you to make a decision.
  • The messages often contain numerous errors in spelling and grammar, or the provided contact information lacks consistency.
  • Always research the company before applying for a job. Check its website, do an Internet search, and search for reviews on Glassdoor.
  • We list all of our employees on our official website under the Meet Our Team page. If you receive a message from someone claiming to be from our company and are unsure if they are an employee, you can check our website to verify their identity. 

For Canadians who are a victim of recruitment fraud:

  1. Reach out to your bank or financial institution for assistance.
  2. Report it to your local police
  3. Report it to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC), even if you haven’t suffered any financial loss. Your report will aid law enforcement in investigating cybercrime.

DailyHive Interview with our MD: Tap Into Vancouver’s Hidden Job Market

We’re extremely excited to mention of a recent interview that our Team Captain, Michael just held with the fine people over at the Daily Hive Vancouver.

Michael let fly with some of his well-kept secrets on how to tap into some lesser-known resources for jobs in Vancouver. What he means by hidden are those jobs that aren’t listed in the traditional locations. You won’t find these jobs on Company websites, job boards, LinkedIn or those types of resources.

We’re not going to give away Michaels secret sauce because that wouldn’t be right. Head over to the Daily Hive where they were so kind as to invite us to join them for a sit down.
