JOB SCAMS, INTERVIEW SCAMS how to watch out and report them!

DON'T ever give your information (social security, bank info, credit card info etc. on any application or online) do your homework on these companies go to the FBI site and other sites (BBB, consumer sites etc.) that will tell you about these places ..DONT just assume they're legit if you don't go there and see etc...don't believe everything online. CHECK to see if they are LEGITIMATE...ALOT of Scammers online. They could be using your information to scam others! Check your credit reports ASAP and if they have tried to get your stimulus check, DETR unemployment benefits etc... It happened to me-it's a nightmare!
