It’s stressful being a job seeker. It’s tough having to deal with rejection and indifference that you receive from companies that you apply to. But, in addition to that, there are still lowlifes that will try to prey on the unemployed who are desperate for a job. Here are some common ways that you can tell whether a job offer is genuine or not.

No reputable company is going to ask you to send them momo. Any request if the sort should be a big red flag for you. The scammers might claim that it’s the administrative charges to set up an interview. THAT IS NOT TRUE. If a company is looking to hire new employees, they will not require any sort of monetary assistance from someone who is unemployed.
