Right now, many Central New Yorkers are looking for work. Don't fall victim to scammers in the Syracuse area posting fake job openings.

According to Local SYR, Manlius police are warning Central New Yorkers to watch out for a new scam involving job postings. This latest scam follows a posting by a local business for an opening a few weeks ago on several sites including Indeed:

The position was filled, but they then learned that their information was being used on other job sites without their knowledge. The business got calls from people claiming they were scammed and took part in fake interviews."

Currently, police say an unknown person asked people for pictures of their driver’s license, social security cards, and banking information, all part of this job interview. Officers advise people to never send personal information via text, and be sure to report it to the authorities if you are being asked.

Take A Look Inside The Abandoned ShoppingTown Mall In Dewitt, NY

Onondaga County currently owns the ShoppingTown Mall located in Dewitt New York near the Syracuse area. As of today, the mall is abandoned. The future of the building will go to someone who has the best vision for it. Onondaga County has issued an official request for proposals (RFP) for ShoppingTown Mall.
