Learn about the following scams

Employment scams

Scammers pose as a potential employer for an exclusively online or remote job. They ask you to purchase computers and office equipment with the promise of reimbursement or claim to have overpaid you for your work. Reimbursements and overpayments will be reversed, leaving you responsible for the funds.

Payment scams

Scammers often provide job applicants with illegitimate bank information, offering to pay off your credit card balance—and possibly asking for gift cards or cash in return. But the payment is frequently reversed, leaving you responsible for the entire credit card balance.

Impersonating ClayHR

Scammers pose as ClayHR's team and ask job applicants to provide your personal information or even transfer money by phone, text or email. In this process, the scammers attempt to gain access to your account.

Social media marketplace scams

Scammers place ads on social media marketplaces for selling goods and services. Often, these deals require you to pay in advance. Once you pay the scammers, you won't be able to get in touch with them again


Tips to protect yourself and your family

  • Carefully vet the company that you are applying to: Conduct a thorough evaluation and investigation of the company before applying or engaging with them in any way. It involves gathering information, assessing their credibility, and ensuring they are a legitimate and reputable organization
  • Don't use non-standard modes of communication: If a company ask you to download a specific app such as Signal, Telegram etc. that may be an indication of scam. Stick to standard mode of communication such as email, phone etc.
  • Don’t click on anything in an unsolicited email or text message asking you to update or verify account information: Verify the company's phone number and email address from a reputable source instead of relying on the one provided by a potential scammer, and proceed to contact the company directly to confirm the authenticity of the request.
