Amazing job offer or a collaboration you can’t refuse???

This past month IDCARE has seen a spike in reports from professionals being approached by scammers through social networking sites such as LinkedIn.

Criminals are connecting with professionals, requesting to collaborate with them for business purposes. As these sites hold work related information about the individual, the scammers use these details to create a story that will appeal to their potential victim. For tips on protecting yourself on LinkedIn please see our LinkedIn Security Fact Sheet or for general protection tips go to our Learning Centre, which is a key resource for visitors to learn how to prepare, prevent, detect and respond. This is where IDCARE prescribes and offers immediate treatment.
