I’m a little concerned as I’ve been responding to adverts for jobs on Gumtree posted by ‘private’. I only respond to ‘private’ as I’m not interested in agencies. Every single response that I’ve received has now come from an ‘agency’ and every single one of them is using a fax number starting with ‘086’ and many of them, the numbers thereafter ‘226’.
I was annoyed as it has wasted my time and data and I do not have the financial means to fax my cv, supporting documents, id and photos to these fax numbers that also cost more than a normal fax. Also you cannot respond to the email either so I must use up data to google the agency in order to email them.
Then a friend also pointed out that they could possibly be scams in order to gain our id numbers etc of which were all included in my cv plus photos which was attached to each one I responded to.
Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.
At least I know HR Solutions are a real company!
