BillGO, Inc. Recruitment Scams
Last Updated: August 17, 2022
According to law enforcement officials, there is a nationwide surge in fake job offer scams. The FBI reports more than 15,000 people fell victim to these scams last year at a cost of more than $42 million.
The schemes work like this: fraudsters contact prospective job hunters through emails, social media posts or texts announcing bogus career opportunities. Once they have their attention, criminals use the job application and interview process to harvest personal information such as Social Security numbers, birthdates, bank account data and more. They may even ask candidates to pay upfront costs for office equipment, background checks or other expenses, promising reimbursement following their hire date.
No legitimate company does business this way.
Unfortunately, criminals pretending to represent BillGO have recently victimized people using such tactics and we know we are not alone. As has widely been reported, no industry or organization is immune.
