He offers to send you a check to buy a new laptop and wants you to deposit the check. ..withdraw the cash. .and use the... see more
This morning was a rough one… I missed my train, left my bagel in the toaster AND spilled coffee all over my brand new pants. YIKES! All I wanted to do was crawl back into bed and try again tomorrow.
But, I made a promise to myself that 2020 would be a year of personal growth and positivity which means every Monday counts! So, I whipped out my Tide To-Go pen, poured a new cup of coffee and headed into work with a smile.

Just wanted to bring this situation to light, although you may be already familiar with it: FAKE INTERVIEWS! So this company reached out to me regarding my resume, saying they got it from an employment search engine that I posted it on.

Over the last 2 days I have had 3 job offers by 2 different companies offering jobs working from home. They use legitimate company's to do this scam and here is a little of how it works.
They send you an email of a job offer to work from home using a real company's name that does do some positions remotely and they say the positions pay anywhere from $15 to $28 an hour.

Recently I recieved an email about a position with Indeed, as a
Staffing Coordinator a home based position. Since I am already working nights at Amazon, I thought this would be great.

Then they sent me an application & a 35 question job interview form. After that they sent me an... see more
I got this email today and a call from someone, who spoke in length about this position. I am an attorney and was being offered this position without an interview. I have been looking for employment for a while now, but I urge everyone out there to not fall for stuff like this, just because you may need work. I think its not a genuine thing, but since I am young and very new to the industry, I want the opinion of fellow job casers. FYI I havent... see more

I have been applying for jobs now for over a year or more and have read enough alerts to recognize the scam that was attempted on me. I feel like I need to pass the information on so that you will not become a victim. I will try to keep this as short as possible: I received an email to my yahoo account that told me that my resume had been reviewed for a position that I applied for on a particular job board. I was directed to my
I saw a job for a car sales person at a dealership near me on one of the major job search sites. I applied and sent my resume. I got a email saying to come in for an interview.

He said he liked me and invited me to go to phase 2 of the process. That phase consisted of going to training... see more
