Employment Scams Warning – Tips for Safer Online Job Search

Very Important You Must Read

Dear Valued Member,

Thank you for being a part of Mustakbil.com, Pakistan’s leading jobs site.

Mustakbil.com is the only jobs site in Pakistan that contacts each employer to verify its status so that every job that is posted on our website is genuine and posted by authorized person only. We hope that you will understand that due to the limited resources it is not practically possible for us to conduct in-depth verification of each employer.

You are hereby advised to be careful about employment scams in which the job applicants are asked to pay some amount on one pretext or another along with job application.

As part of the job application process, recruiters/employers/agents should never ask you to pay fees for recruitment or processing services, such as training materials, interview fees, test fees, CV/resume improvements or administrative costs etc.

You are therefore advised to avoid applying for jobs where the role requires you to process payments via a personal bank account, cheque or transfer money by wire services such as Western Union or Moneygram.

We have also added a warning message on the top of each job page which tells jobseekers not to make any payment to employers in any case, and if they find a job posting at Mustakbil.com and employer request money to process application, interview, test etc they should report it immediately to [email protected].

    Dear Fellows,
    I guess I would be the only person who will be contacted by these fraud people third time. Recently few days ago I got two same kind of fake job Opprotunities with the name of Oil companies and salary is 10,000 Pound and job location is also in UK. But thanks God all time I was not becoming the victim and not on the receiving side.
    Recently they send me the offer from the company named Kelton Petroleum and very renowned company Schlumberger.
    I would like to know from mustakbil team that do you know any place or authority where I can complain for these fake people. So than next time they will not try to do this with others also.
    Thanks
    Syed Uzair Shah

  24. Muhammad Abdur Rehman

    Dear Sir,

    Whenever i read above alert i think in starting that Mustakbil Team is informing or warning to his members about the straight fake policy through internet which is most common in these days all over the world that pay/deposit some amount to specified Bank Account No.
    But in middle of the alert i read that above mission or task should be completed through Post Office too.

    This alert should be published in news papers and spread on air because this alert should be all over the country because everybody is not a member to Mustakbil Team.

  25. admin Post author

    Dear Muhammad Abdur Rehman,

    Thank you for your feedback. Please share this message with your friends and family members and help us in creating awareness about such scam.

  26. Ahmed Ali

    @Faheem

    NEVER EVER PAY a single Rupee for any job test/interview or any other pretext. Online job search is a very easy and effective way to get a job. But as everywhere, there are moles who in the garb of Employers/Recruiters make us fool. We need to be cautious while using online services. Be it mustakbil.com or any other website.

    Mustakbil.com’s efforts in creating awareness about these scams are commendable though. :)

  27. Murad Ali

    Asalam o Alaikum,
