Summer isn’t all about spending days at the beach or traveling.  Finding employment has become a top priority for younger adults and temporary job seekers. However, discerning whether or not the job is legitimate has become a huge problem. Watch out for employers who require fees for training and for ordering a background check. A genuine employer would NEVER ask for someone to pay for this. Do your research!  Make sure the company is legitimate before sharing any personal information or sending them any money.

Be a fraud fighter!  If you can spot a scam, you can stop a scam.
