Warning Signs of Employer Scams

The internet and online job posting websites can be great resources for locating jobs and internships. Even though most job postings are legitimate, you must be careful of job scams. Here are warning signs that a job may be a scam:

  • A company asks for your credit card or bank information
  • A company asks you to wire money
  • You receive a job offer without completing an application or interview
  • The pay is too good to be true for the position
  • You are asked to cash a check and forward money to a third party
  • You are asked to pay for training or a credit report

Always take time to research a company to make sure the job is real. Research can be done through a "Google" search, visiting a company's website and/or checking a company through the Better Business Bureau.
