Scam Gram! May 2016

Don't be fooled by "Get Rich Quick" Job Postings, Even on Trusted employer websites.

It's hard enough to find meaningful work in this economy. It certainly doesn't make things easier when the job you're applying for doesn't really exist. The oddly named Gigats.com, which boasts over 11 million registered users, was recently charged by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) with "pre-screening" applicants for nonexistent gigs, only to pass the applicants' personal information on to shady schools and training programs that had paid the site for leads. Unfortunately, Gigats isn't the only gig in town-scammers frequently advertise on Indeed.com and other career websites, offer bogus "work from home" positions, and solicit money from job seekers for software, computers, seminars and other job-related products and services that never pay off.

Scam Gram is a monthly News alert distributed by Consumer Action.
