      Job seekers getting scammed

      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, "there??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."
