Bhubaneswar: The internet is filled with scammers and aspirant job seekers are always 'easy prey.' Despite several awareness campaigns, many youths get duped and end up losing money to various tricks of the cybercriminals who are on the prowl round-the-clock.

Recently, the State Bank of India (SBI) urged job seekers to beware of fake job offers claiming to be from a reputed organisation.

In a tweet, the SBI had suggested some safety tips and asked job seekers to check the authenticity of the job offer besides verifying the credentials of the company/ executive offering the job.

Apart from these safety tips, SBI also warned job seekers not to share personal details or transfer funds to anyone promising jobs.

Not only SBI, but the Ministry of Home Affairs has also been issuing advisory at regular intervals to create awareness about online job frauds.

As per MHA, job seekers can always stay one step ahead of fraudsters and find a 'legitimate' job by following certain tips given below:

-Avoid opportunities on search engine advertisements: Always search and apply for jobs posted on authentic job portals or newspapers. Do not apply for jobs posted on search engine ads, social media advertisements or labelled sponsored links or results.

- Check the privacy policy of job sites: Before registering for any job search portal, check the privacy policy of the website to know the type of information collected from the user and how it will be processed by the website.

-Don't respond to unsolicited emails: Always keep a note of where you have applied for the job. Do not respond to any generic emails from an unknown company as it could be a scam.
