Any offer appearing too good to be true, must be cross checked before any communication with the originator of such offers / contents.
Do not give your identification information unless you are confident that the other party is who they claim to be. For example, you could ask them for a call-back number to use for verification purposes.
Be careful when providing credit card or bank information, or engaging in any monetary transactions. Be sure to verify the legitimacy of the employer with whom you are interacting.
Do not provide any non-work-related personal information (e.g., Identification no, eye color, marital status, etc.) over the phone or online.
Be aware of any job offerings which arrive in e-mail unsolicited and ultimately require anyone to pay a fee in advance, particularly if the fee is asked to be paid through a financial services or if one must pay the amount to a bank or person in a third country that is suspiciously unrelated to either party.
