Some job seekers may inadvertently fall victim to job scams in Singapore. Our recruitment executive adheres to an organized process to ensure we keep to the highest level of integrity.
Job scam often involves fake online job advertisements on social platforms and websites offering high paying jobs. Unsolicited text messages, or messages from Facebook, WhatsApp, Telegram, WeChat or Viber that offer jobs that do not exist.
Job scammers will ask victims to share personal information such as mobile number OR transfer (or remit) a small sum of money to secure the fake interview or for more information about the fake jobs.
Identify fake job offers with these warning signs of scam.

- Job offer is sent from a personal email or a “no-reply” email, and not from Adept Manpower email domain
- You did not apply for the job
- The job is too good to be true
- Job description is unclear or too short
- Poor use of the English language, with multiple typos and grammatical errors in the job advertisement or text messages
- Job posting is found in a random social media community
- The company has no website or official/corporate social media account
- Communication channels are only limited to social media channels and messaging platforms such as Facebook, WhatsApp, Telegram, WeChat, Viber and etc.
