This type of scam operates by telling people they are being considered for, or have been given, a job with ReliaQuest or an affiliate. However, as part of the process, you are required to pay a training fee (or some other type of fee) before you can start. You may also be asked to complete employment forms requiring you to provide your personal identifying information which may include bank information.
In reality, you are not being considered for a job opportunity with ReliaQuest, but rather you may have been tricked into sending money to a scam artist. ReliaQuest does not require candidates or employees to send money or banking information to ReliaQuest for any reason during the recruitment process. ReliaQuest conducts most of its own recruitment and any request for an interview will typically come from an @reliaquest.com email. ReliaQuest does not use free email providers like Gmail or Yahoo during our recruitment process. Further, all jobs listed are on our official website and we encourage candidates to apply through our online portal.
If this is the case, we recommend ceasing communication and disregarding such emails as they are a scam. If you have received a job offer email that says it’s from ReliaQuest and want to confirm its legitimacy, you can contact us www.reliaquest.com/company/contact-reliaquest.
- Slow it down – Scams are often designed to create a sense of urgency. Take time to ask questions and think it through.
- Spot check – Do your research to double check the details you are getting. Does what they’re telling you make sense?
- Stop! Don’t send – No reputable person or agency will ever demand payment or your personal information on the spot.
