Here at Rossi Security, one of our top priorities is to keep all of our current and potential employees safe. We highly value each and every member of our staff; after all, how would we have created such a successful business if it weren’t for our excellent employees?
Something that has caught our attention recently is the increase of fraudulent security jobs, conning ‘applicants’ out of money. To help you out if you’re on the hunt for a security job, and to give our own employees more knowledge on the whole thing, we wanted to raise awareness about this unlawful business and help you steer clear of these conmen in the future!
So, What’s Going On?
In short, there’s been a rise in the number of advertisements for fraudulent security jobs. They usually target job websites, or even email you directly if they can. You’ll follow a normal application process and will most probably be ‘successful’ before you’re requested to pay fees upfront for things such as training and licenses – all of which, of course, you will never receive or use.
But can’t you just get the money back once you realise it’s duplicitous? Well, no. You have to pay them through an anonymous transfer account, and then (of course) you hear no more from the company. You can’t contact them or even find them – they simply vanish! In our opinion, it’s an absolutely atrocious thing to do; if we can do anything to stop these companies from stealing any more money out of people’s pockets, we will.
