Scammers have been targeting film crew on job or listing websites with false job offers posing as real film industry professionals.
Be wary of suspicious emails.
Please call the Pittsburgh Film Office to verify the legitimacy of any productions that contact you.
In some cases, the scammer will try to mail checks to you as pre-payment, usually in the amount of thousands of dollars. They will ask you to deposit the check promptly, and it will bounce.
DO NOT DEPOSIT OR CASH CHECKS RECEIVED BEFORE BEING INTERVIEWED OR STARTING WORK.
The scammers may also offer to meet with you in person. Please be careful and investigate job offers before going to any location. Ask questions and do research.
