Is that new work-from-home job on the up and up? The Investigators dig into online job postings tonight at 10

Tonight at 10: The Investigators dig into work-from-home gigs

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Looking for work during the pandemic? We have a new warning about some online job postings.

The Better Business Bureau of the Mid-South says they’re hearing from job seekers about being lured into criminal enterprises through what appear to be legitimate job offers.

One Memphis mom says she found a work-from-home gig for her daughter that turned out to be a total sham.

“Since the COVID, I didn’t want her out anywhere working so this was the best opportunity,” she said. “I thought it was a blessing.”

“This is part of organized crime,” said Daniel Irwin with the BBB of the Mid-South.

Tonight at 10, we’ll tell you the red flags this mom discovered just days into the new job, plus we’ll break down the tell-tale signs your new gig may be breaking the law.
