There has been a major scam popping up recently. No, I am not saying that Leapfoce is a scam.

Leapforce is not a scam.

But there are some scamsters trying to take advantage of people who have signed up with Leapforce and are yet to hear back from them.

They are also trying to take advantage of people who have failed the Leapforce qualification test on their first attempt.

Here is how the scamters are trying to rip off money from people.

1) They make fake Facebook accounts and ping people with the offer of job, saying guaranteed income of at least Rs 20-30,000 or $500-$1000 (they will adjust the currency according to your country) a month working for Leapforce ( and other companies).

No profile picture, English names, very few friends, etc, are the indicators of a fake Facebook profiles. 

2) They will ask for your referral IDs (in case you are actively working for Leapforce) so that they can put it in their websites and make affiliate commissions.

3) They will take money from you beforehand, before the Leapforce qualification exam even starts and may simply disappear, without ever getting back to you.

4) They may even claim that they are from Leapforce.

 

Leapforce will only coctact you from email addresses like these –

         admin@leapforceathome.com

         xyz…@leapforceathome.com { xyz… meaning anything like support, agent, etc }

But they will never ever ping you in Facebook.

So whenever you see such pings on your Facebook messenger, please let me know. I will take this up with Leapforce and try and track them down, if possible.

 

I fucking hate scammers, liers and cheaters. They are fucking scum in the face of this planet!

 

What is hurting me even more is that, they most likely are Indians.

 

Why you shouldn’t fall for this trap?

 

1) If you’ve been waiting for the last 2-3 months to hear back from Leapforce, I got a bad news for you. The wait time can be anywhere from 1-6 months. You can check the status of your application here –

https://www.leapforceathome.com/qrp/public/home

 

On the top of the right hand side, there is a check application status link, below Enrol Now button.

If you don’t hear back from them in 6 months, you can re-apply again with the same gmail.

 

2) You may lose thousands in this stupid scam. They will take money from you and may never get back to you.

3) The test questions are updated and changed in every exam. So even if they have the answers, there is no guarantee that you will get the same questions as they did. And hence you will fail plus lose your money if you pay them. Another lose-lose situation here. 

4) If you can’t crack the Leapforce Qualification Test, then you are not meant for this job. Even if you somehow get into it, say by paying these scums, you will be kicked out in few weeks’ time. 

Why?

Because Leapforce needs high quality works. And to do a high quality work, you need to have an aptitude level of at least cracking the qualification test.

When you can’t even crack the exam, you won’t do high quality works. And I can bet my life to it, that you will be kicked out of Leapforce in weeks.

5) Lastly, it is about integrity and being a man( or a woman). It is about being truthful and honest. 

Would you be glad to work at something knowing that you cheated your way in to it?

Would you want to appear for few days and disappear again from Leapforce, because you will most likely be kicked out for quality issues?

Cheating only cheats you and no one else.

What you should do when you come across it?

 

Please comment below  and give me as much details as possible. I will make sure that actions are taken against them. I will take this up with Leapforce.

 

Edit Sept 25th 2018.

This email recruit.leapforceagency@gmail.com is a scam. A reader posted below saying that he was contacted by this person.

Notice that email, it ends with “gmail.com”

I spoke to that person in gmail, that’s where he apparently hangs out, and he was claiming to be Barry Ames and from Leapforce. He is not !

Leapforce don’t do recruitment in Google Hangout.

And Leapforce’s email will always end with “@leapforceathome.com” Its also a bit confusing, because it is not just “@leapforce.com” but “@leapforce at home .com” without spaces of course.

And regarding exam, they will always contact you via this email –

agent-qualification@leapforceathome.com

 

27th Nov 2018 Update – 

Leapforce was acquired by Appen towards the end of last year. Since then, their website url has been changed to “https://connect.appen.com/qrp/public/home” and they are no longer called “Leapforce”

The website has the big bold “APPEN” on it and its logo.

And most importantly, their official email, no longer ends with “….@leapforceathome.com” as mentioned above.

Now it looks something like this –

support@connect-mail.appen.com

So any official email communications regarding working with Leapforce/Appen would come from email ending with “appen.com”

 

 

Please don’t be scammed and do report the scammers below via comments.
