Vital scam warning as your dream job offer could be fake – Brits urged ‘be alert!’

Some scammers could ask Britons to hand over money upfront, pay expensive DBS check fees, or to provide personal details such as bank information before a job offer is made.

With furlough ending, the continuing effects of the pandemic on job opportunities, and the festive season approaching, this could serve as a cocktail of circumstances which could make people more susceptible to falling for a scam.
