Protect Yourself From Scams
Scams are often disguised as messages from legitimate businesses, and Field Agent is not immune from this industry-wide trend. As a policy, all Field Agent work opportunities originate exclusively in the Field Agent mobile app, and we never reach out directly with chances to earn money, gift cards, or other compensation. To protect yourself, do not respond to any opportunities claiming to be from us that did not originate in the Field Agent mobile app.
See our tips below for identifying a scam:
Never Give (or Verify) Personal Information Outside the Field Agent App
- Scammers will stop at nothing to get your personal information and rope you into giving them your money. They may even use recognisable, otherwise credible tools like Google Drive to disguise their scam.
- We will never ask you for your personal information outside the Field Agent app, nor will we ask you to verify your personal information outside the app.
Check the Email Address
- The very first thing you should do is check the "from" email address. If you see anything other than @fieldagent.co.uk, you're not talking to the real Field Agent.
- We've seen many spoof email addresses that look a lot like "Field Agent," yet they're missing an "i," or the lower-case "L" is actually a capital "I", or the domain is not
- Check closely.
Be Cautious of Social Media Messages Offering Money
- On occasion, our Agent engagement team will reach out through social media such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn messages. They never offer money, gigs, side jobs, or gift cards in these messages. NEVER fill out a form from Google Drive, or anything not hosted on fieldagent.co.uk. We would use these forms of communication to build awareness of our brand and invite you to sign up, but all job offers and payments are ONLY made within the Field Agent App.
- Occasionally we may use app notifications, which originate in the Field Agent app, to announce job opportunities, or we may send emails, or advertise through job sites, but the actual work is administered exclusively through the Field Agent app only.
Get Paid Exclusively Through the Field Agent App
- We will never ask for your payment or bank details outside the Field Agent App / site.
- While we may occasionally seek feedback through email, the Field Agent mobile app is the only place to find paying work from Field Agent. We will never ask for personal information, present work opportunities, or offer incentives for work completed outside the Field Agent mobile app.
