Recruits being scammed!


So the Royal Marines and British Army facebook page just posted these messages:

PLEASE BE AWARE – There is a scam circulating in which potential recruits are receiving official looking letters asking for bank details as part of a ‘PAY WHILE YOU WAIT’ scheme. The Naval Service does not run any such scheme. Please do not send your bank details.

Some candidates have been contacted by fake company claiming that they are eligible to be paid while they wait to start training. This is a scam, and you should not respond to it. If in doubt, please talk to your CSM.

How do they know who the recruits are? Sounds like a breach of security to me!
