Tue, 01 Oct 2013 15:10:39 GMT — The Texas Workforce Commission is warning job seekers of scammers.Some job seekers have been receiving unsolicited online or telephone communications from someone posing as a potential employer.They claim to be from a job matching website, such as www.workintexas.com After an interview they request a cash or money order advance in order to buy equipment or training. They say legitimate employers never ask for money as a condition for starting work. Trent Morris, the Director of Texas Workforce Panhandle says, "thereâ??s rarely a legitimate reason for asking for money. If you encounter an employer asking for such personal information before a face-to-face meeting, you should just walk away."
