Stay Vigilant Against Employment Fraud
Fraudulent employment offers are frequently made by people claiming to be employees or representatives of various companies. All YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago job-related communications are always sent from an official YMCA email address (@ymcachicago.org). The Y will never ask a job applicant for banking information. If you suspect any fake offers, including but not limited to calls, emails, instant messages, or letters, outside of the YMCA of Metro Chicago, report them immediately to your local police or consumer fraud reporting at ftc.gov.
