Fake Job Offers – Don’t be fooled!

Beware of hoax or fake job offers from people pretending to be recruiting for BAM.

BAM always goes through a formal recruitment process. We do not recruit by email and we do not use online questionnaires.

We always conduct an interview before making a job offer to anyone.

If you receive an email offering you a job with us, it is not genuine and you should not respond to it.

How to spot a fake job offer?

You should be very suspicious of anyone who contacts you by email to offer you a job. These emails will usually have some of the following features:

  • Ask for your passport details, or any other personal or financial information.
  • Ask you to pay money to help with a visa application.
  • Tell you to provide the information quickly
  • Provide a mobile telephone number, often starting with +44 (0) 70
  • Comes from a Google, Hotmail, Yahoo or other internet hosted account. (Even if it seems to come from a company, don’t use the Reply button but instead type in the address manually. If the address changes then it is likely to be a fraud.)

You need to be very careful because sometimes the fraudsters use the photographs and names of real people in companies and also create fake websites that look very similar to the company’s genuine website in order to commit this type of fraud.

If you receive a job offer by email, that seems to come from BAM, you can check whether the offer is genuine or not by contacting us via our enquiry form. We will then ask you to send us further details if required to help the police investigate any fraudulent offers.

We would also advise you to contact your own local police service and provide them with the details of the email.
