Protect Yourself Online

We’re committed to protecting your privacy online. As part of this commitment, our dedicated online security team regularly trawl the Activezoon site for evidence of suspicious job ads and advertisers, and immediately remove them. Using these resources, in addition to other filtering tools, we’re continually improving our efforts to make job hunting safe and secure.

 

Noticed something suspicious?

Have you seen suspicious activity on your account, or accidentally performed any of the following:

Received and/or replied to a suspicious email

Received and opened an attachment that you weren’t expecting

Visited a suspicious website.

If the answer is ‘Yes’, then here are some steps you can take to help protect yourself:

Run a virus scan on your computer

Change the password of your ACTIVEZOON account

If you’ve used this password on another website, please change this password too, (don’t reuse the same password when doing so)

Change the password for the email address you use to sign in to your ACTIVEZOON account.

As an additional precaution, we recommend changing the password for every account where you have used the same email address that you use to sign in to your ACTIVEZOON account. For instructions on creating a strong password.

Please contact Customer Service on +233504553596 if you believe your ACTIVEZOON account has been compromised, so we can investigate further.

If ACTIVEZOON have contacted you regarding our concerns about the legitimacy of an advertiser, please cease communication with the advertiser immediately and if personal details have been provided, in addition to the above steps you can take, refer to the information below.

 

Bank details: if you have provided your bank details, please immediately contact your financial institution.

Fraud and identify theft: If you feel your identity is compromised, please contact your local police station. ACTIVEZOON will work closely with the police should they request any details.

Fraudulent job ads

We regularly screen for illegal job ads that ask for personal or financial information. However, from time-to-time these job ads may appear on ACTIVEZOON.

 

Opportunities that seem too good to be true usually are. Be wary of advertisers or employers requesting the following: • An upfront fee (e.g. for things such as ‘processing’ your application). A genuine advertiser or employer WILL NOT ask you for money or your bank or credit card details. • Acceptance of a money transfer where you can retain a portion as ‘payment’. • Bank or credit card details. • A copy of your driver’s licence or passport information as part of the application process. • Tax file number. This information should only be provided once you have accepted a genuine job offer. • Non work-related personal information, such as your appearance, or marital status. • ACTIVEZOON username and password. • Any other personally identifying information. Always check the legitimacy of any job ad, email or employer that seems suspicious before you respond. For example, large well-known companies usually do not include Hotmail or other free email addresses in their ads. If you have any concerns, call the company directly to verify.
