In online job interviews, deepfakes are being employed.

People are utilising deepfakes to trick recruiters in remote job interviews, according to new evidence provided by the FBI on Tuesday (28). Increasing numbers of businesses are reporting the incident to authorities, according to a US government body.

Even a novice deepfake might be difficult to spot at first glance. A recent case had an interviewer who was able to identify a victim of a blow because his interviewee coughed, but his lips didn’t move.

Cybercriminals use the video and voice recordings of other persons as well as their own to apply for positions in the computer industry and other related fields.

The FBI discovered a trend in the vast majority of cases. Internal scams involving fraud or theft of confidential information are common when positions with access to other employees’ data and financial resources become vacant.

The extent of the damage caused by the coup and the number of efforts to retake power are yet unknown. When it comes to spotting fraud, there are few red flags to look for. Symptoms such as a lack of lip sync with sound can be explained away by claiming that the videoconferencing platform is down or the internet is having issues.
