A local man who was trying to find a job online recently instead found himself the victim of a scam, according to authorities.
In a news release Sunday, Pennsylvania State Police at Belfast said the 59-year-old Williams Township resident was scammed after he applied to a job posting on the business networking site LinkedIn last month.
Police said that an “unknown person” then “conducted a sophisticated online hiring process for the job posting” and was “able to obtain $5,212.00 from the victim.”
Police said the case remains under investigation.
