Warning: Legitimate Canadian job ads will not ask for any banking or personal information.

We recommend that you do not provide personal or sensitive information in your resume or in interviews, such as:

  • Your Social Insurance Number

  • Your driver's license number
  • Your health card number
  • Any banking or financial information, which includes credit card or bank account numbers and Personal Identification
    Numbers (PINs)
  • Money deposits

This information may be discussed with a prospective employer only after the hiring process has begun. If a job posting seems questionable please do not hesitate to contact the job site where you found it. If you suspect that you may be a target of fraud, or if you have already sent funds, report it.


If you think you are a victim of phishing, please contact your local police or the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501. This national call centre, which provides advice and assistance regarding identity theft, is jointly managed by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the Ontario Provincial Police, and the Competition Bureau.
