Be On The Lookout For Scams
HOW TO RECOGNIZE PHISHING, FAKE JOB OFFERS AND SCAM OUTREACHES
Please be aware that there is an increasing number of scams happening in Canada.
ARES recruiters will only contact you through a phone call, or through an @aresstaffing.com email. We do not make job offers to candidates or communicate with candidates through instant messaging services.
If you receive communication in any other way than those listed above, that appears to be from ARES, please treat it as a phishing attempt. Any email other than @aresstaffing.com is not authentic.
The following are possible signs of fraudulent behaviour:
- The job is not listed on our job board.
- You receive a job offer that requires the payment of fees. ARES does not seek fees from job applicants/candidates/job seekers under any circumstances.
- A request for personal or financial information (i.e. birthday, social insurance number etc.)
We do not make job offers to candidates or request candidates to send applications through instant messaging services.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU RECEIVE FRAUDULENT COMMUNICATION
Do not respond. Consider reporting the incident to the Canada Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501 or visit https://antifraudcentre-centreantifraude.ca/index-eng.htm. The Canada Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC) is Canada’s central fraud data repository and is a trusted source for fraud data and for educational and prevention resource materials. Cyber-based fraud may also be reported to the Canadian Cyber Incident Response Centre (CCIRC) at https://www.publicsafety.gc.ca/cnt/ntnl-scrt/cbr-scrt/ccirc-ccric-en.aspx.
In Canada, you can forward any spam text messages to 7726 (SPAM on most keypads). This will instruct your phone provider to block future texts from that number. On social messaging platforms we recommend you report the message, block the sender, and delete the message.
You are always welcome to reach out to us directly at 416-480-2700, or via email@example.com if you are unsure if the communication is fraudulent.
