Better Business Bureau Scam of the week - Job Seeking Scams

If you are looking for a job, be aware that scammers posing as potential employers are looking for you. 

Here’s how it works. 

You respond to an online job offer or you receive an email or text from someone who wants to hire you. The pay is great and you can even work remotely. You respond and are immediately hired. 

After you are hired, you are instructed to pay for training or certification. Sometimes, the phony employer sends you a check with instructions to deposit it in your personal bank account to purchase software or materials from another company (that is part of the scam). The check later turns out to be counterfeit and you will have to return all the funds to your bank.  

Don’t be scammed. Thoroughly research any employer and realize that scammers will pretend to be real companies. Don’t provide any personal information or fork over cash until you are sure you are dealing with a real employer.
