Pray and look through the various sources God sends to you.

It takes prayer, thought, and discipline to find the correct direction to go when looking for a job.  One part of that wisdom is to be aware of scam job offers.

Beware of scams while online job hunting.

LOS ANGELES, CA - When people are out of work, they may use various sources to find a job.  There are internet search engines such as Indeed or 'Snagajob'.  There are local newspapers that publish jobs.  Sometimes these newspapers also publish online job listings.   There are Thrifty Nickels or their equivalents that may contain employment ads. Jobs may be posted through radio or TV networks, or perhaps there is a local community job board, or some State agency through which to do job searches.  While job hunting, people may also network with friends and/or business contacts .

One place to look which can yield good results is Craigslist.  However, this needs to be approached cautiously. Remember, when a person is responding to an advertisement for a job, he/she often sends in a resume which includes a lot of personal information. If the job offer is not from a legitimate company, all that information is now in the hands of someone who might misuse it.  How could it be misused? For example, the information might be sold on the black market, where people try to gain information for credit card fraud and identity theft.

When a person is responding to an advertisement for a job, he/she often sends in a resume which includes a lot of personal information.


Especially be cautious when the company offering the position immediately wants the I-9 and W-2 information.  Once that is given, a scoundrel now has all the information needed...driver's license, social security card, tax ID, plus resume information, to effectively steal a personal identity.

The best way deal with a Craigslist ad is to ask for the company's name, a contact phone number, a Better Business Bureau recommendation, and enough to convince yourself that this is a legitimate company. Don't take their word for it. Check it out. If the company is local, you can go in person and apply for a job.  That way you are not sending your personal information into cyberspace, where it can be misused for identity theft.

Be wise and diligent while looking for work.  Pray and look through the various sources God sends to you, but also be careful not to allow your identity to be stolen.
