It has come to our attention that individuals are impersonating Cleartail Marketing to promote fraudulent job offers through messaging platforms such as Viber and Telegram and other messaging apps.

Fake job scams are becoming more common, and they prey on vulnerable job seekers. Cleartail Marketing takes this matter seriously and advises the public to exercise caution and vigilance when receiving such offers.

You can protect yourself from these false job ads and offers by identifying a fake job scam:

  1. Verify the Source: Check that the communication is from an official email address or verified account. Search the company’s website or social media accounts and look for inconsistencies or discrepancies in the contact information provided in the fake job offer.
  2. Beware Of Offers That Are Too Good to Be True: Scammers may promise immediate employment without any formal interviews or excessively high pay for a minimal effort. If the offer seems too good to be true, maintain a healthy dose of skepticism and remember that legitimate opportunities typically require effort, qualifications, and realistic expectations.
  3. Check Language Quality: Fake job offers often exhibit grammatical mistakes, awkward sentence structures, and misspelled words. Such errors lack professionalism and attention to detail, traits that are typically not associated with reputable companies.
  4. Do Not Fall for Requests for Sensitive Information: Be wary when asked to provide sensitive information, such as bank account details, passport numbers, or copies of identification documents. People with malicious intentions can use these for financial fraud, identity theft, and other forms of exploitation. Legitimate companies prioritize data security and privacy by establishing procedures for the collection of applicant information.

Stay vigilant, and thank you for your continued support.
