KPRC 2 Investigates: Fake employer on Indeed steals thousands from job applicant

HOUSTON – Searching for a job can be stressful. Just when one woman thought she nailed her interview, she realized her new potential employer was actually a thief. She contacted KPRC 2 Investigates when she discovered the fraudster stole thousands of dollars from her online.

Karen Miller and her husband Matt are supposed to be on their honeymoon in Dubai right now. But their big trip was canceled after their honeymoon funds were stolen. After a great first interview with a company she found on the job search website Indeed, Karen Miller was invited for a second interview.

“So I thought it was legit, and everything that they were explaining to me seemed legit. I had to fill out a paper for my payroll, all of that seemed legit,” said Miller.

Then things went south.

“We were on Zoom, and then we switched to Microsoft Teams. And they asked me to continue to click different links because their website was down on their end,” she explained.

While waiting, the employer asked her to pay for her background check.

“So in doing that, I used my Cash App. And that’s how they got in. My Cash App was still open on my computer.”

It appears that when clicking the different links as she was asked, Miller was actually allowing someone to hack into her computer.
