Fake Job Scams

It has come to our attention that several individuals have been approached by scammers impersonating employees of LMA Recruitment Limited (LMA). The fraudsters sent communications containing job offers or requests for bank information that they claim is for salary payments. These job scams typically involve unsolicited job offers or requests for payment or bank account information via mobile phone calls, text messages, emails, WhatsApp and/or Telegram messages.

As part of our commitment to protecting you, we want to bring your attention to Recruitment Fraud and what you can do to avoid it.

​An important note:

  • LMA will never communicate with potential candidates using Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, or other non-official email accounts. Domains used by our staff include “@lmarecruitment.com” and “@lmarecruitment.asia”.

  • LMA will never ask a prospective candidate for money.

  • No candidate is ever asked by LMA to pay for training or anything else during the recruitment process.

  • LMA will never make a job offer without first conducting a formal interview. In most cases, we recruit using face-to-face interviews.

What to look for when identifying a scammer:

  • Emails which don’t come from addresses on LMA’s domains.

  • Messages that are not addressed to you personally.

  • Job opportunities with inflated salaries or lucrative commission structures that seem too good to be true.

  • Unsolicited communications and/or job offers for roles you did not apply for.

  • Requests for sensitive, financial or identity information, such as your bank details or a copy of your passport or driver's licence, when you haven’t applied for a role or accepted a job offer.

  • Attempts to trick users into logging into fake accounts, similar to phishing schemes, in which scammers capture the information entered on the fake site and use it to log into the real one.

  • Requests for money! Whatever the reason, you're being scammed. Don't be fooled - never give out your personal information or send money to someone you don't know.

Safety measures you can take:

  • Be sure to change your passwords for other online services if you have re-used the same one.

  • Make sure your antivirus software is up-to-date and installed.

  • Ensure that your online services have multi-factor authentication enabled and set up properly.

  • Make sure you don't send money to anyone you don't know or have never met face to face.
