The cyber police unit of the State Public Security Secretariat (SSPE) has identified a new form of scam through social networks, in which videos are being circulated offering well-paying jobs without leaving home.
Cyber police officers detect these offers during computer patrolling on the web and social networks such as Tik Tok, Facebook and Instagram.
On these sites, videos circulate where cyber criminals offer work from various companies and to make them more attractive, they promise to do it from home to willing people.
Among the requirements they request is to deposit a certain amount as “material guarantee” and after the victim has contributed, they no longer receive a response.
SSPE Cyber Police recommends that, if a job offer is received online without soliciting or signing up for any notification process of these characteristics, be suspicious of its veracity.
It is also recommended to check the spelling of job postings, as many are misspelled or misspelled, which is a sure sign of potential fraud.
Another recommendation is if, after applying for a job, the interested party is asked for money, or the request for payment is not accepted under any pretext.
Be suspicious of advertisements that advertise highly paying jobs from within the country or abroad that do not require previous experience and verify websites from the Cyber Police Unit at telephone number 614- 429-3300 at extension 10955 and email at request. [email protected]
