Jobseekers beware of fake job website

In Government/Policy, Latest News, Miners Are People Too

Mine workers who are desperate for work have become the unfortunate victims of a fake job website.

Consumer Protection Western Australia recently warned miningjobswa.org masquerades as the real miningjobswa.net.au employment website, except it uses the ABN of another Australian company with a similar trading name.

In addition to this, the false website’s business address of 370 Roberts Road in Subiaco is actually just Market Square Park.

Authorities have tried to shut down the website, but have not yet managed to do so.

Acting Commissioner for Consumer Protection David Hillyard says job seekers should beware of fake websites, which can steal job-seeker’s money and even their identity.

“These callous scammers are attempting to rip-off job seekers who are likely to be in a vulnerable financial position and can least afford to be losing money,” he says.

“They may also be asked to divulge their personal information and send a copy of their passport for identification purposes. This opens the possibility of identity theft in the future.”
