Anyone who is looking for a job is encouraged to do their homework. That according to the Better Business Bureau. The Better Business Bureau estimated fourteen million people fell victim to job scams in 2020, resulting in two-billion dollars in losses.
South Dakota Better Business Bureau Director Jessie Schmidt said that scammers will stop at nothing to separate someone from their money and identity.
The Better Business Bureau’s 2020 report on job scams found this fraud most commonly victimized people ages 25-34. The median financial loss reported by these victims was one-thousand dollars, plus loss of time in work performed for bogus companies.
