I have posted this warning on my contact page, however I felt it was necessary to post this on my home page in an effort to make sure people who are responding to help wanted ads see this when coming to my site immediately.
Scammers are posting help wanted ads on Craigslist and other sites like Indeed.com in my name stating they are looking for an assistant or bookkeeper. Once you reply to the ad they will request credit card and bank account information. You should never provide this type of information to anyone, and there is no reason a legitimate potential employer would request this information from you. I am not hiring for any position, and most certainly would not use these sites to hire if I was.
