  • Job Offer Scams - be Wary!
    Some Oregon job seekers have been contacted with job offers that turned out to be scams.  There are many variations, and the Internet has made it easy for scammers to create and distribute bogus or deceptive job offers, usually by e-mail, but also sometimes posted on legitimate job sites.

Scam Alert
The Oregon Employment Department has been alerted to a scam targeting job seekers.

There have been at least two reported cases of individuals receiving phone calls from someone identifying themselves from “WorkSource”. The caller states they need the individual’s social security number to perform a background check on the job seeker’s work history.  One of the job seekers was also asked for their debit card number to cover an alleged $99 fee for the background check.

It is not the policy of WorkSource Oregon to contact job seekers in this manner.  WorkSource Oregon does not ask for personally identifiable information, such as social security numbers, for the purpose of performing a work background check, nor does WorkSource Oregon charge any fees to job seekers.

Anyone who receives a call from someone identifying themselves from “WorkSource” or WorkSource Oregon requesting this information should contact the Oregon Attorney General Consumer Fraud Hotline immediately at 1-877-877-9392, or e-mail consumer.hotline@doj.state.or.us.
