Investors Beware! Fake Online Job Interviewers Scamming Money

AdobeStock_69736117-2-300x200According to a recent Financial Advisor article, a new scam has surfaced where scammers conducting fake online job interviews attempt to steal victims’ money. They may ask to provide personal or financial information, which, in that case, individuals are encouraged to terminate the call immediately. The scammers may also ask you to pay a fee. The scammers also have been requesting documents or files to be downloaded in order for them to capture keystrokes or mouse movements or even for them to take control of your webcam. Other signs may be if the scammer tells you the job is “guaranteed,” or “waiting for you,” and they may pressure you to commit to the job quickly and add poorly written text on the online video platform, or other communications. The scammers pretend to be involved with a range of legitimate organizations, including the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).
