The fraudulent employer claims anyone can work from the comfort of their own home and earn a significant amount of money with no skills or experience needed.
These scams will often include instructions to collect and deposit funds from the fraudulent company’s "clients" and then transfer money back into a third party bank account.
These fake positions require the job seeker to receive packages of goods, such as Electronics and other items, and then re-ship the packages to another location, often overseas.
The fraudulent employer claims the job seeker will be paid handsomely to shop at a variety of reputable companies. Typically these jobs will require a fee for information or certification prior to employment.
Be cautious when applying to jobs that have very generic titles without additional information about the potential employer. These generic types of listings can be good cover ups for fraudulent activity because the descriptions can be vague, yet look professional.
