Is it legit? Job Posting Scam Alert - Great Pyramid Productions
We got a report of a scam floating around from a "Great Pyramid Productions " posting for PA jobs in several states in the US. Please read these real life scams so you can see how this looks.
The advanced fee SCAM goes like this...: The scam is that they basically look to hire PAs, tell them they need to travel quickly to a different city at a crazy high rate i.e. $350/day. They are then to call the specified "travel agent" to book all the accommodations and then you are to wire money to the "travel agent" and as you can imagine there is no $350/day job, no travel agent and people are scammed out of money.
