Another scam has surfaced and a Langley resident is out some money after replying to a job advertisement on a website.
While there are many legitimate job opportunities on websites, there are still a significant number of frauds. Be cautious of any job requiring you to use your own bank account or sending money via cheque. Do your own research. Look up the business itself and find out about the company (consider the Better Business Bureau), check any phone numbers or addresses provided. If you DO accept a cheque, confirm the funds have cleared, prior to making a withdrawal. Avoid the costly lesson.
More information on the ever growing variety of scams can be found on the Canadian Anit-Fruad Centre website.
