The pitch floating around social media seemed like another hoax.

“Earn $4k-$5k a week! FEMA Field Inspectors needed ASAP!"

It gave a telephone number and a tight deadline.

It says no experience necessary, but there are some requirements like having two forms of ID, be willing to travel and no felonies.

FEMA told KVUE News the post was legitimate. It was for a contractor who works for FEMA.

The positions are filled, according to FEMA.

FEMA representatives told KVUE News that they have seen some fake job posts, however.

One claimed a person could make $2,000 per week for 90 days. It was not real.
