Beware of the false job postings that get listed online from time to time and ask for your personal information illegally. The placement of such false job postings is a violation of the Monster Terms of Use and may also be a criminal violation of the federal and/or state law.

Monster is dedicatedly working towards stopping this abuse and providing you the safest possible environment to search & apply to jobs and manage your career. 

Here are some important tips to use when dealing with prospective employers:

  • Do not give your confidential details unless you are sure that the other party is who they claim to be. For example, you could ask them for a call-back number to use for verification purposes.
     
  • Be careful when sharing credit card or bank information, or engaging in any monetary transactions. Be sure to verify the legitimacy of the employer with whom you are interacting.
     
  • Do not provide any non-work-related personal information (e.g., Social Security Number, eye color, marital status, etc.) over the phone or online.
     
  • Be cautious when dealing with contacts outside your own country
     
  • Be wary of emails that offer an opportunity that involves acting as a go-between for money transfers. Disregard the email and DO NOT follow through with the employment offer being made.
