LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) --
For job seekers, a Rip-Off Alert tip -- a robocall scam is making the rounds.
The Better Business Bureau
says this scam begins with a recording claiming to be with an employment agency and wants to interview you about a job survey you supposedly filled out on line.
Once you give your name, educational background and salary requirements, a live person gets on the phone. But this isn't a hiring agency -- the Bureau says it's a shady company collecting information.How to protect yourself:
-- Hang up if you encounter these calls.
-- Do not give out personal information.
-- File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission
The FTC recently announced plans for a new way to filter and block prerecorded calls.
