SALINAS, Calif. - A new scam targets people most vulnerable in this economy - job seekers. The One Stop Career Center in Salinas is posting fliers, alerting people they could become victims of identity theft.
By the looks of the email, you might think it's from a legitimate Human Resources manager. But, it's not, it's actually a scam. Instead of promising a new job, scammers steal your identity.
"Through an email, someone tries to convince you to release personal information to them," says Virgil Schwab, director of technology.
