Craigslist Job posting scam

Just recently a woman responded to a craigslist advertisement of a job as a house cleaner. The lady was very excited about the job because the employer informed her that he would give her a $2,400 check wherein she would get the $400 for her salary and the rest is for a painter that was supposed to fetch her and take her to the job site. It was later on discovered that she was a victim of another job posting scam on craigslist. According to Norma Miller a representative of a Better Business Bureau people should be very careful in answering some craigslist posting. There are some that criminal use to attract their victim. You must be very vigilant and think clearly when answering an advertisement. If you feel like the advertisement is too good to be true, probably it really is. Most scam offer huge pay for less work to be able to catch viewer’s attention you must be careful with names that you are not familiar with. Legitimate employers never give out money out front or even ask you to cash a check before working. It will be your first time reporting for work why would they trust you right away? And they would never let a stranger pick you up. They would always ask you to go to the job site with the address they provided. These are just a few things that you should consider before reporting or applying for a new job.

    Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long)
    so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m
    still new to everything. Do you have any recommendations for rookie
    blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.
