Applicant: Internet Scams: How to protect myself?

Our team of moderators check the site everyday to check employer profiles.

However, in order to protect yourself from scams, please make sure you:

  • Use the Yoopies messaging service rather than Whatsapp / other messaging platforms. If a problem arises between you and employer, we can then help.
  • Do not provide your email address or phone number anywhere on your profile or ad
  • Do not send your CV straight away, your CV can be presented at the interview stage
  • Never accept overly attractive payments
  • Never accept any payment in advance
  • Only exchange information with an employer residing in your country
  • When you first meet the family / individual, choose a public place.
  • For payments, use our online booking system which guarantees a secure online payment for your services.

Feel free to report a suspicious profile or activity on the platform so our team can check their information.

In case you haven't found the answer you're looking for, feel free to contact us at
