Disclaimer: Be mindful of website scams
A scam website is one that’s set up to look as legitimate as possible while taking your hard-earned money and delivering very little in return, if it seems too good to be true it probably is. Never sign up for a program that gives you some information or product in exchange for your money. Job postings that are riddled with typos and grammatical errors are a definite red flag, commonly seen on Craigslist. Many resume scams originate in other countries where English isn’t as common. Another red flag is getting a good job without an interview, that is incredibly unlikely.
