UTICA, N.Y. – The Mohawk Valley Water Authority is notifying the public of a fake job posting for the agency that’s been circulated on Indeed.com.

The posting advertises an opening for a receptionist position paying $25 per hour – which doesn’t exist.

According to a release from the MVWA, “This job posting did not originate from the MVWA, we do not have any such vacancy, and we are not seeking to fill any administrative positions at this time.”

After MVWA contacted Indeed, the job posting was removed, but some people may still be in contact with the scammers.

The release goes on to state, “The MVWA urges anybody who remains in email contact with anybody regarding this posting to cease all communication immediately and be sure not to reveal any personal information such as a bank account number, social security number, or date of birth, etc.”

For future reference, vacant positions at the MVWA are typically posted through the Oneida County Department of Civil Service.
