  • Perpetrators use mobile phone numbers, rather than office numbers.
  • Communications have spelling and grammatical errors or are poorly formatted.
  • The email or communication is marked as ‘urgent’.
  • The employment offer is for an international position.
  • The perpetrator asks for money (e.g. for ‘visa fees’, taxes, a percentage of travel expenses) and requests personal information such as passport and bank account details.
