A public advisory issued by the FBI warns about an increase in scammers using deepfake technology and stolen personal identifying information (PII) to impersonate job candidates.
The artificial intelligence technology enables a person's face to be placed onto someone else's body in a video and a person's voice to be cloned.
The advisory said, "Complaints report the use of voice spoofing, or potentially voice deepfakes, during online interviews of the potential applicants."
The scammers could be seeking remote positions to gain access to data.
Said the FBI, "Some reported positions include access to customer PII, financial data, corporate IT databases and/or proprietary information."
The agency said employers can spot deepfakes during video interviews if the actions and lip movements of the interviewee do not align with the audio of the person speaking.
