Fake job emails

Share this article:
A security firm is warning about a new round of emails that masquerade as job opportunities but actually try to phish recipients out of financial information. According to the company, Red Condor, the messages claim to offer employment to companies such as Pepsi and Starbucks -- or appear to come from job sites such as CareerBuilder and Monster. However, the emails typically contain "payment processing" requests and ask for bank account information. The company said this type of scam is not surprising, considering the rising unemployment rate. — DK
