Job Hunters Urged To Beware Of Phishing

A heads up for job hunters. If you've posted your resume with Monster.com, your information could be in the wrong hands. The government says hackers recently got into the Monster.com database to steal the information of people looking for jobs. The information captured included name, address, telephone number, and email address. Monster Worldwide has assured the U.S. Office of Personnel Management that social security numbers were not compromised because of it security shields USAjobs.gov has in place. Now the government wants anyone who posted with USAJobs. gov or Monster.com to stay alert for phishing emails. USAJobs will never request personal information in an unsolicited email.
