  • When you're looking for work, you need to know how to recognize a fake job ad.

  • If you do apply for a fake job, at best it is a massive waste of time.

  • At worst, you could have your money and your identity stolen.

  • So what should you look out for?

  • If it seems too good to be true, it usually is.

  • If a job ad says you can earn heaps of money with little effort, it's probably a scam.

  • If you need to pay money to apply for a job, it's probably a scam.

  • If you have to buy materials from an employer to do the job they're advertising, it's probably a scam or a multilevel marketing scheme.

  • If someone asks to deposit money into your bank account and it doesn't come with a pay slip, it's probably not only a scam, it's money laundering too.

  • Do your research and check the details you have match information you can verify.

  • Look for a street address, a website and a phone number you can call and speak to the employer.

  • If an employer contacts you directly, ask them for this information.

  • Never give your bank account details, driver's license or other photo ID to an employer until you have had your interview and know you have the job.

  • If you think you found a fake job ad on the jobactive website, let us know.

  • Use "report this job" at the bottom of the job ad or call the job seeker hotline on 13 62 68 and report it.

  • If you have any questions, leave them in the comments below.
