TULSA - It's specific to using legitimate business names to fool people into handing over personal information or cashing bad checks.
Craigslist and other sites have reported an increase in these job offers where a real company name is used then people are quickly pressured to hand over banking, credit card or other personal information to get the job.
A good first step is to Google a company you're considering going to work for and be aware if you can't find the job listing on the company's actual site then it's likely there's no job there.
Also legitimate businesses won't ask you to cash a check and quickly wire off money to a third party.
Grammatical errors and misspellings are also clues the job offer is not legit.
