|How To Detect A SCAM Interview Using Nairaland by EZEIGBO1OFIMO: 9:25am On Nov 09, 2015|
As job invites and interview went all electronic; several pyramid scheme and unscrupulous companies have seized this opportunity to make life living hades for young graduates.
Here is a simple tip you can use to check the legitimacy of a company that has sent you invite without having to open a thread and ask other users.
1. Use the Nairaland search Box above - Type the name of the company in the search box, you may decide to add keywords such as "Scam" , "Experience" , "fake" .
2. Type the Number in the search if you're unsatisfied with the company name- Most fake job invites come with a supposed HR Number; since a possibility exist that other members have previously received this message and did confirmations.
.3. Use the physical address- Pyramid schememes are known to change name from time to time, but addresses never change. So you can do well to NL-search the address.
If all the above fails, then head over to the good 'OK Google. Use Google maps, navigator, and the search engines to see what you can find.
4- Facebook- using the number of the SMS, you can do a truecaller I'd search or a simple Facebook search to verify things further.
If all fails and you're still unsatisfied with your results , then you can decide to go to the stipulated address to see things for yourself; But remember the Cardinal Rule. NEVER PAY MONEY FOR A JOB.
caveat Emptor- Pyramid schemes (GNLD, MEDPRO etc) are not illegal, the only observe auster moral and ethical codes.

I was in ph and I got an interview invite at lagos in a 2 days time and prior to that a genuine job call has been coming in and I thought they were the same. I came on nairaland and someone talked about typing the address on Google, without hesitation I searched the address on Google. Even without completing the address, the full address popped up.And lo and behold, all the search links showed that the address is used by fake company to scam gullible youths.
Pls let's be wise.

I apologize on behalf of Lisse Africa for any inconveniences encountered by your friend during the recruitment process.
But I just want to correct a notion about Lisse Africa as a recruitment firm. Lisse Africa is a new company registered in Nigeria with registration number RC1458411.
Our primary focus is support staff recruitment and outsourcing. Staff like Drivers, Cleaners, Cooks, Office Assistants, Waiters e.t.c.
At times we do get openings for Customer Service Reps, Sales People and even Business Development Executives. And openings are published on popular job listing platforms like , myjobmag.com e.t.c
Everyone that has ever been invited are people who applied through these platforms and we are proud to say that in a short space of time we have employed quite a number of people.
Our website is www.lisseafrica.com and every of our job interview invites come from firstname.lastname@example.org.
We don't request money from any of our candidates to give them jobs. We follow standard HR procedures.
To clear your doubt, LISSE AFRICA is not a SCAM , we are REAL!!.
I would really to give you a call to clarify any doubts that you still have.
Our apologies to your friend.

Don’t fall victim to these totally avoidable job scams. Here are some ways to identify false job postings and avoid them:
1. Wonky Language
This is a definite no no. Companies take extra take extra time to proofread their job postings. If you find grammatical or spelling errors in a jobs ad, it is most likely fake. Always verify any posting or call for interview you come across.
2. No online visibility
In this digital age, companies know that they have to have an online presence. In fact, no online presence means you’re not serious about getting your product/service to your target audience. When you get an call for interview email or see a job posting online, Google the company. If you find nothing about the company, don’t waste your time with it anymore. Some scammers could go the extra mile and create an online presence. Look out for companies who have suspicious domain names, have no contact address/phone number, have no real information about they what they do. In any case, to be extra sure, copy the job ad or website here
3. Non Branded Email
Branding is key with companies these days. If you have taken note, you would see that comapnies usually have their employee’s assigned to their company’s name. So, if a company is names WriteAssit, an employee’s email would be email@example.com. If a job posting says you should send an email to an @gmail.com or @yahoo.com email, think twice and verify before applying.
4. WhatsApp Interview Notification
We get that the professional world is working hard towards making the job application process more friendly, but this is ain’t it. No real call for interview would be sent to you via WhatsApp. Companies would rather email, call, or send you a text message with enough details about their company including a website. If you are scheduled for a remote interview via Skype or phone call, that’s acceptable. Anyway, confirming would keep you safe.
5. Miracle jobs
These scammers know that people are desperate for employment. Unfortunately, they play on that and release mouth-watering offers that seem too good to be true. Be careful of job postings with extremely high salaries for jobs that usually have lesser pays. They also siphon email and phone numbers from the Internet and randomly send interview emails or text messages. If you did not apply for a job, you most likely won’t be “miraculously” called for a job interview.
6. They want money.
Think about it; they need you to pay them to pay you? It’s a big no. Don’t apply. Companies usually won’t require you to pay for an interview.
An advice for you is that you should not sign up on every job platform you see. A lot of time, your details get siphoned that way and you become a prey to scam job posting and call for interview. Also, trust your instincts. If you feel something is not right, do your research. Itarj.com (Is this a real job?) is a great tool that allows your to verify if a job posting is real or not. Use it now and share with friends and family! You would literally be saving lives.
