Possible Indicators of a Job Scam:
- Listings that ask for your private information such as SSN, driver’s license number, bank accounts, credit card information, etc.
- “Small Businesses” that direct you to a home address for an interview
- Foreign companies that do not have a local office
- Listings for jobs such as stuffing envelopes, email rebates or refunds, data entry, and jewelry-making at home that require payment to start, and require unpaid and tedious work up front
- Listings requiring you to buy products and submit receipts before you get paid; this specifically addresses mystery shopping listings
- Listings that request you to go to a pay-to-attend seminar
- Employers that request you open a new bank account or credit card
- Online applications that do not have the company headline in the URL, or are not password protected
- The same business’ phone numbers and fax numbers with mismatched area codes
- If an employer asks for money, why can’t he deduct from the first salary?
- Email addresses that do not include the company name
- If they contact you only through email
