CHEYENNE - The Wyoming Department of Workforce Services (DWS) is warning job seekers using the Wyoming At Work system of an email scam operated by a company posing as AEB International.
The Department encourages job seekers to fully research employers before submitting an application.
The recipients of the fraudulent emails are asked to deposit a check sent by the scammers into the jobseeker’s bank account. The jobseeker is then instructed to send a Money Gram to a third party to purchase equipment.
DWS is working with law enforcement to identify the culprits.
If job seekers have questions about employers they are interested in working with, contact a local Workforce Center or call 1-877-WORK-WYO.
