Scam job advertisements on JobStreet.com

Be careful of scam job advertisements. They appear occasionally on job sites, posted by dishonest people out to make quick money from unsuspecting job seekers. While JobStreet.com always tries to ensure that the job advertisements are for real job opportunities, such scam advertisements do sometimes get posted. When we see such scams that violate our Advertisement Policy, we quickly remove them.




Be careful of job emails that;
1. Ask you to pay money before processing your application or training you;
2. Invite you to interviews that turn out to be multi-level marketing or pyramid selling schemes;
3. Misuse your resume information to sell you products (such as insurance, etc.) or make offers not
    connected to the job advertised;
4. Are generally untrue, dubious or misleading (e.g. misleading job title, job description or
    company description); or
5. Use web-based public email addresses instead of company-owned email addresses.


On overseas applications, make sure that the agency you are dealing with is licensed by POEA and is in good standing. To check if agency is licensed, click on the link below:

In addition to the above, we also want you to know that JobStreet.com does not send emails that require you to download and/or install any software, tool or utility. Lastly, do not give your JobStreet membership username and password to anyone, even if the request appears to come from an email with a JobStreet.com address. We do not ask passwords from our members.

You can play a part to inform us if you come across possible scams. If you see any such email or advertisement on JobStreet.com, please alert us at info-ph@jobstreet.com giving us the Company Name and Position Title, and we shall investigate.

While we will try to take appropriate action whenever possible, JobStreet.com cannot be liable for any action by scammers or employers that violate our terms of use.
