Never give your bank details to an unknown company
Recently, a company called United Technologies contacted jobseekers registered on job portals by phone, asking for their email address in order to send a job offer.
Once given the e-mail address, the jobseeker is sent an e-mail where they are asked to send bank details and their credit card number to the company. EURES recommends jobseekers not to answer any e-mails sent from this or similar companies and emphasises never to send credit card details, as no serious employer would ask for this. EURES is taking all possible measures to prevent this kind of fraudulent behaviour in the future.
