FRAUD ALERT


ERA Franchise Systems LLC EMPLOYMENT SCAM ALERT

ERA Franchise Systems LLC strongly believes in the importance of protecting personally identifiable information of all consumers. Be wary of unauthorized parties identifying themselves as a "Hiring Manager" of ERA Franchise Systems LLC or something similar and offering potential work opportunities.

We recently have been made aware of sham ERA Franchise Systems LLC job postings on Indeed.com. After an individual submits a resume through Indeed, he/she is emailed by a "Hiring Manager" to set up an online interview via Google Hangout or a similar service. The scammers then attempt to collect personal information by falsely claiming it is for "verification purposes" or by providing a fake "Offer of Employment" on our letterhead and requiring that it be signed and returned along with a copy of a photo I.D and direct deposit bank information. A victim also may be sent a bogus check to cover equipment expenses for the phony position, then are asked to wire any remaining funds back to the scammer. Once the check is discovered to be counterfeit, the thief is gone and the victim is responsible to the bank for the entire amount of the fraudulent check.

PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THESE TYPES OF EMAILS AND PRACTICES ARE NOT ORIGINATING FROM ERA Franchise Systems LLC AND WE DO NOT SEEK CANDIDATES FOR EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES IN THIS WAY.
