Thank you for visiting AllStarJobs.ca. We believe you will have a positive experience on this site, however, we must remind you to use caution at all times. Though most people you will encounter are genuinely interested in a rewarding exchange for both parties, there is always the possibility that unscrupulous individuals could misrepresent themselves in an attempt to take advantage of your good will and potentially, your business.
General tips to all users:
• Above all, use your common sense and trust your instincts. If something about the other party involved seems suspicious or unbelievable, don't continue the transaction unless you can address your concern to your satisfaction.
•To prevent identity theft, never share valuable personal financial information (such as social security or bank account numbers) with parties online.
•When sending payments, use secure payment methods that provide some protection in the event you are defrauded. Never send or accept money by wire services as most offer no payment protection (you should be suspicious of those who suggest that method of payment).
•Escrow or online payment services can be a good alternative if needed, however, beware of fake sites that might pose as legitimate. Check out any site you might use thoroughly and if you're unable to identify its security features, use another payment method. E-mail messages are not a secure method to provide payment information.
Tips for Employers:
• Know who you're dealing with. Confirm the prospects physical address and phone number in case you have questions or problems.
• Make sure to save written correspondence with potential employees so you have a record of benefits promised.
• If a prospect seems overqualified, eager to take the job before hearing details, or acts in a suspicous manner - beware. They may be scammers.
Tips for Job Seekers
• Make sure you resume is up-to-date with accurate information.
• Anticipate questions employers might have and address them in your resume or job application.
• If you are applying for a remote job, make sure to do due diligence on the employer.
• When meeting a potential employer, make sure it is done in a safe place or office setting with other people present.
• Beware of posters who offer unreasonable terms, conditions, or salaries. It may be a scam.
• If the ad posting has numerous spelling or grammar mistakes, or does not sound like it was written by a natural English speaker, beware of a possible scam.
