Jobrapido.Com: Online Job Scam?


I was alerted by one of my blog readers about her experience with www.jobrapido.com.  According to her, she sent resume to employers with job vacancies for caregiver posted at jobrapido.com.  She got a couple of interviews online and one of the "employer" hired her.  She was then asked to send money via MoneyGram.

If you have read my posts about online scams, you'll already see a red flag there.

Now, is jobrapido.com a scam?

I can't say it is.  Jobrapido.com is just a job positing site wherein anyone can post job vacancies.  The site provides a search tool to look for job vacancies.  However, it does not guarantee that the posted job vacancies are verified and not just a scam.

I searched for 'online scam' using jobrapido.com and here's the result. LOL
For Filipino workers, applying for any job abroad, you must deal only with recruitment agencies registered with Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA).

Canadian Immigration Consultancy is not a recruitment agency.  We do not have recruitment or placement services. Gatewaytocanada.Com is not connected with Jobrapido.com.
