Tips to spot a job scam

Salisbury, Md. - Have you ever wondered if those job postings you see online are real or not? Sometimes, it may be hard to tell the difference. If you are looking for a job, here are some helpful tips to tell if a job or job posting is fake.

First, if the job seems like it's too good to be true, it usually is. That includes jobs that say you can make thousands of dollars without having to leave the house.

 Also, if you receive an email about a job, check for grammar. Most emails from scammers are not well written. Another big tip, if the particular job requires you to send money, use your personal bank account information, or provide confidential information, it's most likely a scam

"When you do fill out some of the online information you are giving them vital information about you which they can use that in order to steal identity so it's always good to go to a trusted source for employment and it's always good to look at is it too good to be true," said digital media director Gregory LaFrance.

And lastly, its always best to trust your gut, and researching a company is your best defense.
