Protect Yourself from Fraud and Scams

First Things First.... If it sounds too good to be true it usually is!


Keep in mind most scams involve one or more of the following:
  • Inquiry from someone far away, often in another country
  • Western Union, Money Gram, cashier's check, money order, shipping, escrow service, or a "guarantee"
  • Refusal to meet face-to-face before consumating transaction
  • The "JobZone" is not involved in any job offer.
     
Protect Yourself:
  • Never give out financial information. (bank account info, Social Security Number, etc.)
  • Do not submit to credit checks or background checks until you have met the interviewer in person.
  • Scammers use fake cashier checks and money orders. Banks will cash them and then hold you responsible.
