Recruitment Fraud Policy

Recruitment fraud is a sophisticated fraud involving the offer of fictitious job opportunities.

In recent times we have become aware that various individuals and organisations are contacting

people offering false employment opportunities at a number of London based hotels. Such scams

are fraudulent and intended to steal from the victims.

At Easy Hands International we take this matter extremely seriously and by making you aware of

this, we hope to avoid you falling victim to this type of scam. We will continue to be proactive in

trying to prevent recruitment scams where we are made aware of them and will report any apparent fraudulent activity to the relevant authorities, including the police.

What is recruitment fraud?

Recruitment fraud is a sophisticated fraud offering fictitious job opportunities. It is normally done

through online services such as bogus websites, or through unsolicited emails claiming to be from a potential employer, such as Easy Hands.

These emails ask recipients to provide personal information, sign bogus letters of employment,

organize UK working visas and ultimately payments to progress false applications.

IT IS ILEGAL TO CHARGE MONEY FROM CANDIDATES IN EXCHANGE FOR A JOB OFFER!

How to identify recruitment fraud?

The perpetrators will often ask recipients to complete bogus recruitment documentation, such as

application forms, terms and conditions of employment or visa forms. The Easy Hands International Ltd name and logo may be featured on the documentation without authority.

There is an early request for personal information such as address, date of birth, CV and passport

details.

Candidates are requested to contact other companies/individuals such as lawyers, bank officials,

travel agencies, courier companies or visa/immigration processing agencies.

Email correspondence is often sent from or to (though not restricted to) free web-based email

accounts such as Yahoo.com, Yahoo.co.uk, Gmail.com, Googlemail.com and Live.com.

The perpetrators frequently use mobile or platform telephone numbers beginning with +44(0)70

instead of official company numbers.

They advert for a job position, and the advert didn’t have the company /agency name, or inexistent name, no email address or company phone number.

The perpetrators may even offer to pay a large percentage of the fees requested and ask the

candidate to pay the remaining amount.
