Better Business Bureau Warns of Corporate Identity Theft

Better Business Bureau Warns of Corporate Identity TheftThe Better Business Bureau of Connecticut is warning job seekers to watch out for examples of corporate identity theft - that is, when scammers impersonate businesses by posting employment ads online, with an end goal of obtaining personal information and money from applicants. 

Scammers often post job ads on online job-seeking forums, and they may even reach out to individuals who they deem might make "a good fit for the position." They may ask for information ranging from your Social Security number to your birthdate, or even bank account numbers. Exercise caution when providing personal information for job ads that you see online.
