MANLIUS, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) –Manlius police are putting you on a scam watch. This follows a posting by a local business for an opening a few weeks ago on several sites including Indeed.com.  

The position was filled, but they then learned that their information was being used on other job sites without their knowledge. The business got calls from people claiming they were scammed and took part in fake interviews.
