The costs of working from the comfort of your own home may be higher than you know.
In the Work-at-Home Scam, fraudsters advertise jobs, but really hope to find unsuspecting partners in crime.
Victims may be directed to cash fraudulent checks, transfer illegally obtained funds or re-ship stolen merchandise. The crooks also may use the personal and financial information of their “employees” to commit identity theft.
Independently research the person or company offering work.
Generic email addresses and non-functioning websites are red flags.
Don’t give money or account information for training, certification or start-up fees.
