Last week, the FBI warned that people interviewing for tech jobs using stolen identities — and even deepfake videos.

Specifically, on June 28, the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) reported an increase in complaints about the use of stolen personal information — and even real-time deep-fake video technology during Zoom interviews — by some tech job candidates to misrepresent your work experience or lying about who is actually applying for the job.

The FBI said the increase in fake applicants is mainly in software development, database and other software-related jobs.

The good news is that the deepfake technology used for live interviews doesn’t work, according to the FBI. (Video tends to have audio lag, and other anomalies may reveal a fake.)

The bad news is that while the technology for live video spoofing is not yet developed, in the not-too-distant future, remote recruitment could be rife with AI-enabled digital spoofing.

In the past, deep fakes were less sophisticated, and completely remote conversations were rare.
