Email scam targets FW City Utilities job applicants

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - The City of Fort Wayne is advising people who have applied for jobs with City Utilities to be on alert for bogus emails.

The emails present a time and date and ask residents to respond for an online interview. A Fort Wayne Utilities spokesperson says don't fall for it.

The City Human Resources Department does not use email to schedule employment interview appointments. 

Scammers are using an illegitimate email address that looks similar to an official City email address and asking applicants to respond to an email and agree to an online interview. This type of scam is called "social engineering." 

The City is investigating and advising people not to engage suspicious emails.
