Craigslist scam uses Wausau Boys and Girls Club to get info

WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) - Officials at the Boys and Girls Club say a group is using their name and logo to pass itself off in a scam.

An authentic looking job listing was posted on Craigslist in Wausau, advertising an open position at the Boys and Girls Club. When applicants responded, they got a replay sending them a form to get their credit info and credit score. Director Kim Larsen says the letter is not coming from them. "We got a contact from the national Boys and Girls organization saying this is an problem across the country." Other similar ads have popped up from Fargo to Eau Claire to Iowa.

Larsen says the club will never ask for that kind of information in an interview process. "If you did hand out that info, you should contact the police." Larsen says a number of other groups were also targets by the scam.
