Fake Work at Home Job Leads

One common work at home scam is to post a fake work at home job lead on a job board. The job looks great, pay is good and so forth.However, when the application is sent in, one of a few things may happen.

  1. The company may inform the applicant that the job is taken, but some other position is available. Usually, this new position is some other variety of work at home scam.
  2. The applicant is told they need to join a particular job board in order to access the lead. Most often, this board charges for admission and has few or no current job leads.
  3. The applicant is asked to pay a fee to show they are "serious," since the company "doesn't have time" to deal with all the people who aren't serious about working at home.

When you encounter a fake work at home job lead, report it to the job board on which you found it. Most will remove it promptly.

If You Get Scammed

First try to clear it up with the company. If they are uncooperative, let them know that you will be contacting officials about the matter. Then do it.
