Recruitment Phishing Scams Targeting Job Seekers

The number of instances of job recruitment scams has been increasing in the past few years. These scams involve the scammer posing as a JAC International consultant on social media and messaging apps asking potential candidates for money in exchange for a job or interview. They also phish for personal information such as your name, age, and other personal details.


Please beware – this is a scam. JAC Group will never ask you for money in return for an interview or a job. It is against our code of conduct and business values to do so. Applying for any of the jobs on our websites does not cost a thing and JAC International does not charge fees to job seekers for its placement services.


JAC International will also never ask you for your personal information like your passwords, identification card, or bank account details.

If you receive a message from someone impersonating a JAC International consultant on any social media platform seeking your personal information including bank account details, passwords, or other sensitive information with the promise of a job opportunity, please don’t respond.
