Edited from a Press Release
CHARLESTON — Attorney General Patrick Morrisey warns consumers to exercise caution when looking for ways to earn extra money for holiday gift purchases or added travel expenses.

 
“Money can be tight around the holidays,” Attorney General Morrisey said. “With so many people buying gifts and traveling, it’s important for those seeking an extra job to only reply to legitimate job offers.”
 
Consumers should be particularly cautious of work-at-home positions. Such opportunities may promise flexibility and extra income, but result in nothing more than lost time and money.
