#MyThoughts When Looking for Work!

Finding a Job can be challenging in itself, stay away from applying for a Job if the Post ask you to reply to a Personal Email Address. Offers High Salaries for a Job that Typically Pays less that the posted Salary. Here are a few examples that I found Posted in Our Community. NOTICE THE FLAGS!

Who Pays $30.00 per hour working 2-4 hours Per Day? Not Many That I know of? Ask you to reply to a Personal Email? If it is a Real Company, why are they not providing the Company Website? Some Companies offer their Employees a Referral Bonus. When the Interview takes place, they normally will ask how you know the person who referred you. I found this Posted in Our Community and felt the need to warn others in the community to Be Aware of Scams Like This! All it takes is for them to get one person’s personal information and they attack your credit and bank accounts.

*Please Read my Post on How to Spot a Scam!

@Steven Ransom It could be because of the Title? However, when clicked to write this reply it sent me to a group. Not sure if it is your group? Occasionally this happens when they do upgrades on the app. I would write one of the community specialists and ask they what is going on?

@John Biddle - Like me, I get frustrated with the scams that people post. We flag it, and they are still there. Between the scams and getting people who try to ask if I want a Date? Then they get deleted and a few days later they are back again with a New Name and Account!

#MyThoughts on Thursday

Good Morning Community,

Last night while scrolling through some of the comments, I couldn’t help but notice the scammers are still trying to scam our community. This is a never ending story of how far they will go to scam people. I replied back to them asking them to stop! Will it work? No, they put so much into it because of the results. If only they put the same effort into a job, how blessed they would be? With all the companies hiring, why wouldn’t they want to obtain a real job? The answer is they make to much money scamming people. Until they get caught and arrested. Then the ball game changes. The one thing that puzzled me is the fact that people still fall for it. This is the part that I will never understand it. For Example, Customer Service Reps average $12.00 - $17.00 per hour. Then they see a post offering $30.00 per hour for the same type of work, with a personal email address and they send the information.

Fascinating Scam Statistics and Facts

In the US, one in ten adults will fall victim to a scam or fraud every year. 1.3 million children have their identities stolen every year. You are more likely to become a victim of identity fraud by having your wallet snatched than you are via online fraud. When it comes to victims of doorstep fraud, 85% are over 65. In 2018 internet-enabled theft, fraud, and exploitation were responsible for a massive $2.7 billion in financial losses. In 2019 phishing attempts grew by 65%. 1 in 10 profiles on free dating sites is a scam. In 2018 82% of organizations were victims of payment fraud.

The numbers speak for themselves, it is a never ending story. *Please Do not be one of the numbers.

#MyThoughts on Tuesday

Happy Tuesday,

As I begin this Tuesday, let me start out by reminding everyone to Update their Profile, Resume, answer questions people post in the community. Don’t forget to comment on the topics and share your thoughts with our community. Sometimes we get overwhelmed with the everyday obstacles in our life, leading us to get sidetracked with the challenges of finding the right job. By updating your profiles, it allows employers to see the New You. Next you can start with a Job Search Plan. What kind of Work do you see yourself doing? Use the Job Search Tools to find out who is hiring and apply. *Keep in Mind the Scam Alerts when searching for a job. Using the basic rules of Not Being a Victim of Employment Scams.

  1. If it sounds to good to be True, it is.

  2. Never give out personal information to a personal email address.

  3. Research the Company you are applying. Most Companies have a link to their Job Opportunities.

  4. Be sure to share your journey with Us in the Community on how your Job Search is going! #jobsearch #advice

#mythoughts Avoid Being Scammed

Don’t fall victim to being scammed when looking for work! Once again I am seeing post in the community that are scams. One of them is from Wendy Nicole. The name should be the first Red Flag! Who has two names, one for a last name? This is the first of many flags, 2nd asking you to reply to a gmail or other persons email address is another factor to look out for. Unfortunately, people who are looking for work and are dealing with hard times will apply. They will find themselves in a worse position then they were if they fall victim to it. Please do the research when looking for work. Remember if it sounds to good to be true it is! Don’t fall victim to work related scams #mythoughts
