How to Report a Job Scam
There are more job and employment Internet scams each and every day. Scammers try to fraudulently get you to wire money or collect your personal information, or attempt any one of a variety of other job scams designed to take advantage of job hunters seeking to find employment online.
For example, you might be told that you will receive $490 per week. Then you receive another email saying that there was a mistake and the company accidentally sent you $3,200. When you receive the check, you're supposed to wire the rest of the money to someone else—a typical attempt to get you to part with your money. The check from the company won't clear, and you'll have already wired the money to a third party. You may be asked to purchase gift cards and send pictures of the activation codes on the back.
These are only a few examples of the many ways scammers prey on people seeking employment. Some of these scams are complicated and it can be easy to think they are legitimate. What should you do if you've been scammed or almost scammed? Here's how to report a scam, including where and how to report an employment scam.
