Job Scams

Scammers might promise you a job with the benefit of working from home at good wage, often requiring an upfront fee for help. Never pay upfront for this type of service.

Report this scam to:

Federal Trade Commission at: www.ftc.gov/complaint or by calling 1-877-382-4357.

Signs of a Scam:

  • Scammers may promise you a job.
  • Promise you a government job.
  • Offer you the secret to getting a job.
  • Promise that you will make lots of money by working at home.
  • Offer you a certificate to improve your chances of getting a job.
  • Scammers always will ask you to pay first.

 

How to Avoid a Job Scam:

  • Never deal with anyone who promises you a job.  No one can promise you a job.
  • Do not pay in advance for information about a job, even a money back guarantee.
  • Do not deal with anyone who says you have to act fast.
  • Ignore promises to make thousands of dollars working in your own home.  Those promises are lies.
