Beware of job scams!
Scammers know that finding a job can be tough. To trick people looking for honest work, scammers advertise where real employers and job placement firms do. They also make upbeat promises about your chances of employment, and virtually all of them ask you to pay them for their services before you get a job. But the promise of a job isn’t the same thing as a job. If you have to pay for the promise, it’s likely a scam. A google search of the organization is a good place to start your inquiry into the legitimacy of the job.
Signs of a job scam:
- You need to pay to get the job
- You need to supply your credit card or bank account information
- The ad is for "previously undisclosed" federal government jobs
- Don’t accept pay in advance
- Never accept a job without an interview
- It is looks "too good to be true", it probably is
