Better Business Bureau warns about new job scam as millions look for employment

There’s a new job scam that people should be on the lookout for over the next several weeks.

The Better Business Bureau reports that emails and texts offering fake jobs are increasing.

They say that red flags include asking for personal information, sending fake checks, and requesting the person pay for training.


Melanie McGovern from the BBB encouraged people to do their part before taking a job offer at its word.

“A lot of the email addresses are from free email services not the company directly,” said told 13WHAM. “So people will mimic big companies, like say an Amazon. Well they should have an Amazon email address. They shouldn’t be using a Yahoo email or a Gmail address to correspond.”
