Preventing and Combating Online Recruitment Fraud

Last week, I was asked again about an online recruitment fraud scheme. Threat actors are reaching out to job candidates on major recruiting sites, offering them interviews and even sometimes job offers “signed” with the name of actual employees at the organization. The fraudsters appear to be monetizing this scheme either by asking candidates for money to process their application paperwork, for bank account information for direct deposit or actually sending the candidate a check like the classic “overpayment scheme.”
