Craig's List scam making the rounds

Dec 20, 2013

IRON MOUNTAIN, MI--   State Police at the Iron Mountain Post are warning residents of a scam on Craig’s List. 

Troopers say a subject contacted a company on Craig’s List regarding a job listing.  Without an application, job background, or interview the subject was hired.  They were then told to fill out financial paperwork that included bank and other account numbers.  When the subject questioned the practice the so-called representative got angry and hung up. 

Police are again reminding residents never to give out financial information to unknown sources.  Job applications do not require applicants to provide financial accounts.
