Dear WorkSource Washington Customer,
Your privacy and safety as a registered user of WorkSource Washington at Go2WorkSource.com is something we take very seriously.
To help you conduct a safe job search, we would like you to know about an e-mail scam that has been targeted to job seekers using online
services to search for jobs.
The scammer uses e-mail messages that include a fraudulent offer of employment and an invitation to serve as a go-between for payment
processing. Once the scammer has obtained the victim?s trust, checks or money orders are sent for "processing". The victim is asked to
cash a check or money order, keep a percentage of the funds as payment for their services, and send the balance of the funds back to the
scammer. Once the funds are sent, the victim's bank or financial institution learns that the check or money order was fraudulent. The funds
are then subtracted from the victim's account and they are made liable for the lost money.
If you receive an e-mail message similar to the messages shown below, do not respond to it. If you think you have been a victim of this scam
or other e-mail fraud, you should report the event to your local authorities to make them aware of the situation. You may file a report
online with the FBI Internet Crimes division at www.ic3.gov. You may also report the event to WorkSource Washington at

We sincerely thank you for using WorkSource Washington and wish you a safe and successful job search.
