SCAMS! FRAUD, and More!

Dear Community,

Over the past couple of weeks I have noticed under people comments post like the one below! This is a SCAM! It is Sad that there are people out there that try to take advantage of people who are looking for work or loss their job? I have copied and pasted a copy of what it is I am talking about below this post. This is how it works! You click on the link and they ask for your personal information to mail you a check. A few days later you receive a check for $1200.00 -$2500.00, they tell you to deposit it in your personal checking account and withdraw X amount of dollars. You mail it to them Via Gift Cards, Green Dot etc... 24 - 48 hours later you are receiving a call or letter from your bank telling you the check bounced and has INF funds. You are now out the original amount of the Check! Community Please Take Notice to this SCAM! Do Not Fall Victim To This SCAM! If You Have Fallen Victim to this Scam you can Contact Your Local Authorities and Report It?

Lately you might be seeing post like this under a topic! Donna Alise Molloy Earn $600 weekly Mystery Shopper position available, click on the link below to Apply: https://www.powr.io/plugins/form-builder/view/23434479?mode=XXXX This is an example of Fraud! Please be aware of this post?

Mystery Shopping Companies Never Send People a Check to Cash and keep your payment? Nor Do They Ask You to Send any money? If you see these post AVOID Them and Report it to The Jobcase Staff! The other day I was contacted by a person telling me he would send me a check to do the same? You have to be careful if you send them your address? They Now Know Where You Live! Protect Yourself by reporting it to the Local Authorities for this reason... #scam #MyThoughts #workfromhome #hiringevents #jobsearch #application

Thank you so much for the PSA Michael. We're working as quickly as possible to take down scams as they come up but scammers are relentless and constantly evolving. A reminder to everyone to always research the company and double check the links they are clicking. Never give out personal information unless you can confirm the identity of the person you are speaking to and the company they represent. If you see anything that looks suspicious please report it.

This is true it happened to me a few years ago cause me great damaged to my Chase Bank Account, even though I went to the Bank Manager and they investigated it. They contacted me a gave me clearance to withdraw funds and said the check was good. A week later it all came tumbling down, I still refuse to use Banks because Chase turned on me and I tried doing the right thing. Be careful
