    Exposed: The Truth About LinkedIn Job Postings and Potential Fraudulent Schemes

    |

    Following widespread layoffs in the computer industry, there have been allegations of professional fraud on the social media site LinkedIn by making false job offers. These schemes are being organized by fraudsters and target fired employees.

    An article in the Financial Times claims that con artists using false job adverts are operating schemes. Vice president of product management at LinkedIn Oscar Rodriguez recognized in that study that such dishonest and misleading methods are undoubtedly on the increase.

    Due to claims of employment fraud, social media has attempted to ban over one crore fraudulent accounts. One such fraud was recently brought to light by cyber security company Zscaler. It claimed that scammers approaching job searchers were doing it using in-mail, LinkedIn’s direct messaging feature.

    In order to conduct interviews, fraudsters also constructed Skype accounts with images of actual recruiters from the organization, according to Deepen Desai, vice president of security research at ZScalar. Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly being used by scammers to develop profile images that are simple to manipulate.

    The US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has reported that in 2022, there were over 92,000 incidents of employment and commercial fraud, with an estimated $36.7 billion being taken.
