BBB warns of job offer scam

Posted: Updated:
LAKE OSWEGO, OR (KPTV) -

The Better Business Bureau is warning Washington and Oregon residents of fraudulent job offer postcards that might arrive in their mail.

A legitimate looking postcard is showing up in the area offering a job with phrases like "We've been trying to reach you," "Final Notice" and "Deadline."

The postcard states an open position for the recipient to work from home as a Government Insurance Refund Processor without any experience.

The BBB says this is not a legitimate job opportunity and the sender is probably trying to collect sensitive information or fees for non-existent training materials. This could lead to monetary or identity theft.

Visit bbb.org for more information on this scam and a mystery shopper scam.
