Fraud Alert

The Standard is aware of an individual(s) posing as a company recruiter who is extending phony job offers using email. The “recruiter” is asking those offered a job to share personal and financial information in order to set up a direct-deposit account. The Standard has no affiliation with the individuals perpetrating this fraudulent activity. If you receive such a job offer or similar solicitation, we advise you to neither respond to nor provide any information to the sender.
