Better Business Bureau (BBB) of Saskatchewan would like to notify the public of an increased occurrence of illegitimate organizations posting employment or study-abroad opportunities on job search websites, such as Glassdoor and Monster, Inc., and using local business addresses.
The BBB has conducted an investigation into the following:
We have found that these websites and organizations appear to be fraudulent. The stated office addresses on file with the BBB belong to other reputable businesses in Saskatoon and Regina, who have no dealings with the above mentioned organizations. The IP address for these business websites appear to be deriving from the Netherlands and Russia.
Individuals who have accepted the posted positions by any of these organizations have been asked to transfer money through bitcoin, ATMs, or money transfers.
The names of these organizations have been changed on an ongoing basis as they are identified as fraudulent by the public. Vigilance is required.
Check if a business or potential employer is credible by search the BBB Business Directory or calling the BBB office at (877) 352-9259. Report any fraudulent activity you may have encountered with BBB Scam Tracker.
