Direct Deposit Account

How the scam works:

You have been looking for a job online and finally one day receive a confirmation you are hired.

The person who contacts you is very professional and after a few questions, gives you the details about what your employment with the company will entail. 

After a few common sense instructions, the employer informs you that their policy is to pay the salaries into a direct deposit account, and you will have to set one up ASAP especially for this. They will ask you to give the details needed for your account, including your Social Security Number and date of birth. You know what can happen from this point on.

How to avoid:

If you get a job, you should visit the site. If that’s not possible, make sure you take their phone number and call the Human Resources Department back with questions (but not the number provided by the scammers). You should never set up a direct deposit account for this.

In the meantime, if you are really looking for a job and seek to make some money until you find the next ideal job, there is a couple of online job/reward programs providers:

Be rewarded the Web's Premiere Rewards Site is the world's largest free online rewards program.

If you are into paid surveys, this is the place.
