It has been brought to our attention that there is a current Recruitment Scam circulating on WhatsApp targeting Job Seekers using our Company Name of Perfect Placement.
Multiple accounts have been set up over the last week claiming to be a member of staff from Perfect Placement offering remote work and we can only assume that these messages are a phishing scam to obtain personal information or request payment.
If someone contacts you on Whatsapp claiming to be from Perfect Placement, or using the name of one of our consultants, please report the message firstly and then delete the message without replying.
Our team of specialist Automotive Recruitment Consultants would never reach out to you using WhatsApp, unless you are a candidate that we have an ongoing relationship with and you have requested we speak with you via this medium. We conduct our business in a professional manner and only contact you through Email, Text Message or Telephone.
We would like to thank those of you that have made us aware of this Scam circulating and would like to thank those who have forwarded us evidence of messages received. If you would like to report anything, or have any queries as to the legitimacy of any communication received, we would welcome you to reach out to us on 01603 701077 or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
How to identify fraudulent messages:
- You were not expecting a message
- It comes from a number or email that you don’t recognise
- It contains a link
- It sounds too good to be true – often unrealistic salaries & working arrangements
- They ask for money or your personal details, including your CV
- The message is poorly written and contains spelling & grammatical errors.
We apologise for the inconvenience this is causing and we are currently investigating how to best deal with this Recruitment Scam issue.
