PSA: Widespread Remote Working Scam Underway

Scammers will post a job ad on a job board for a remote position, conduct an interview, and offer the fake job to the victim. The “employer” (scammer) congratulates them and says that they will provide all required furniture and office supplies. The scammer then sends the victim a check which they are told to cash, and they’re asked to immediately buy furniture from the scammer’s preferred supplier. In the cases investigated, the amount paid was several thousand US dollars. Learn more details to protect yourself.
