Lies, damned lies (and scams)

We get it, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. But identity theft is just plain rude. If you’re here, it’s likely because you’re getting scammed.

How to tell if you’re getting scammed?

  1. THEY ASK YOU TO SEND MONEY. For all that is good and holy, DO. NOT. SEND. MONEY. We would never—and have never—asked a team member to purchase their own equipment, send equipment, or money as part of a hiring process. It’s a scam.
  2. They ask you to download or log-in to something. Our hiring process doesn’t require you to download anything or login to any third-party tool. If you’re being asked to do this, it’s likely a phishing scam.
  3. You’re located anywhere OTHER than Canada. We’re a local team and very rarely ever hire folks outside Canada. If you’re not interviewing for an in-Vancouver position, it’s a scam.
  4. The individual isn’t using an email address. Our team does not email from any other domains, so if someone has set up an alias domain, it’s a scam.
  5. The person you’re talking to can’t be found on our Agency/Team page. We’re not a big shop. If you’re interviewing with Massive, you’re doing video conference calls with a Director or Executive from our team page. You’ll see our faces, hear our voices, virtually meet our office dog, etc. If you’re not talking to Lindsay, James, René, Connor, or Prem over camera, it’s a scam. Compare the face!
  6. The position you’re applying for isn’t listed on our Careers page. If it’s not listed, we’re not hiring for it. It’s a scam.

If you still aren’t sure, we’re a friendly bunch of Canadians and would love the opportunity to prove it! Drop us a line at [email protected] or message us on LinkedIn or Instagram. We may not have the job opening you were hoping for, but we can at least save you from sending sleazy scammers your hard-earned money!

Sincerely, the team at Massive
