Pay in order to work?

If anyone asks you to pay them any amount of money for a job, they are scamming you. You should NEVER have to pay money in order to get employment. As Justin Lavelle, chief communications officer at BeenVerified, an online background-check company located in New York City. (taken from Monster)

“Any job that requires you pay a fee to get the job should be an immediate red flag. Honest employers train employees on their dime. You don’t have to pay for training or any other fee such as an application fee, or a processing fee. Any job that requires you to give your bank information or credit card or financial information should be fully vetted before turning that information over to them.”

I just got this “client” today.

ugh

I immediately reported them.

Make sure you watch yourselves.
