Fraudulent individuals representing themselves as Recruiters from Employment Professionals Canada are contacting individuals through Facebook Messenger, Instagram and Tic Toc offering remote work. Be wary of scammers who offer jobs and try to obtain personal information or pressuring for payments made to them through digital currency such as Bitcoin, Crypto and others as well as purchasing visa cards and providing the codes. Scammers will be unwilling to offer emails or contact numbers.
