Quick hire jobs com links are spreading on Facebook and Tiktok claiming that Home Depot, Amazon, and other major corporations are hiring at rates of up to $15 per hour.

Quick hire jobs com scam or legit?

Quickhirejobs.com is a scam.

The articles include links to “Apply” for Amazon jobs, but when you click on these links, it becomes clear how these scams work.

In both cases, these sites attempt to sign up visitors to services that have nothing to do with Amazon, and those behind the “Amazon is looking for new staff” webpage are likely to be compensated for referring people.

If you’re looking for jobs at Amazon, you can find them here. They’re always looking for new people to join their team, especially during the holidays.

Job Scams

Fake job scams come in a variety of forms, but the majority share common characteristics that you can use to identify the scam before becoming a victim.

Interviews are usually conducted via Google Hangouts or another similar online service.

Their English will be sloppy, and they may be reusing a script, so Googling unique-sounding parts of the email may be useful. They will offer high wages for the work being done, and they will “hire” you by telling you that you are hired, rather than going through the normal process that a company in your country goes through when hiring an employee.

It is a fake check scam if they mention a check or receiving and sending out transactions.

It is a parcel mule scam if they mention receiving, processing, or inspecting packages.

An advance-fee scam occurs when you are asked to purchase items in advance, pay a fee to be hired, or purchase gift cards.

If the job entails posting ads on Craigslist or eBay, they will use you and your account to defraud people.

It’s a scam if the job involves Bitcoin ATMs.

How to Avoid a Job Scam

Take these precautions to protect yourself from job scams before accepting or paying for a job offer.

  • Do an online search
  • Talk to someone you trust
  • Don’t pay for the promise of a job
  • Never bank on a “cleared” check
