Riyadh — The Federation of Saudi Chambers (FSC) has warned of bogus offers and scams for domestic labor services. FSC was represented by the National Committee for Human Resources Companies.
The FSC said that various offers had spread recently, misleading citizens about providing several services for domestic labors. Such fake recruiters offer to postpone payment until processing completion and even waive small amounts.

Citizens receive bogus offers through fake links on WhatsApp and social networking sites. These sites offer to complete the transferring services process and pay expenses for domestic workers.
The links are used to withdraw funds from citizens’ bank accounts.
The FSC warned that fraudsters use well-known companies’ names in the links to deceive the citizens, which constitutes a full-fledged electronic fraud crime.
The Federation of Saudi Chambers asked all citizens to ignore messages that take advantage of citizens’ need for domestic workers at such times every year.
