Scammers pose as a potential employer for an exclusively online or remote job. They ask you to purchase computers and office equipment with the promise of reimbursement or claim to have overpaid you for your work. Reimbursements and overpayments will be reversed, leaving you responsible for the funds.
Scammers often provide job applicants with illegitimate bank information, offering to pay off your credit card balance—and possibly asking for gift cards or cash in return. But the payment is frequently reversed, leaving you responsible for the entire credit card balance.
Scammers pose as ClayHR's team and ask job applicants to provide your personal information or even transfer money by phone, text or email. In this process, the scammers attempt to gain access to your account.
Scammers place ads on social media marketplaces for selling goods and services. Often, these deals require you to pay in advance. Once you pay the scammers, you won't be able to get in touch with them again
