Talking of scam job offers

Last week I mentioned that I’d received a couple of very dodgy job adverts in my email. Several of you have commented on that, since.

Last night I heard a show on Radio4 (itself a repeat of a programme from a few days ago) about the number of scam/fake jobs advertised via JobCentre Plus. While some of them sounded like obvious scams, some were less obvious or more elaborate.

They also attempt to set up an advert for a fake job, working for a fictitious company, to run on Direct.gov – the government’s free job search service.

It’s definitely worth a listen, if you haven’t heard it already.
