The concept is even better when you get to work for a great company, but not all offers are what they seem and there are plenty of scams out there. Scammers will even pose as high-profile companies to try and lure you in.

Instead, it’s a scam

The call comes from a number that is flagged as being questionable, which is the first clue. But if you glossed over that or just got the message via voicemail, you may not notice. Once you log on, the site provides ample reason for why this is a good idea, even going so far as to say some of their best employees were doubters-turned-believers. After all that, you are told there are three steps to join, one of which has you fill out a form in which you reveal plenty of information. That is what they are after — your information — as this is a classic phishing expedition.

Don’t fall for this one

As far as scams go, this one is pretty easy to identify, if you know what to look for.

But really, there are a number of red flags on the site, like making sure to let you know that spots in the program are limited and if you want to land the job, you better apply fast. That is designed to get you to skim through the rest of the page while you rush to sign up, in the meantime ignoring the signs that would convince you to at least question what you are doing. Hat Tip to for giving us some of the details about this scam.

If you fell for it

If you did follow through and provide the information, you will want to make sure to monitor all of your accounts closely. Monitor your banking statements closely and if you gave credit card information, be sure to cancel the cards.
