JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A watchdog group says you should beware of a company claiming to be based here in Jacksonville and offering work at home for $30,000.

Their website touts they work out of the Aetna Building on the Southbank. But the Better Business Bureau tells Action News it's a complete scam.

Star Inc. allegedly tries to convince unsuspecting job seekers to wire them money. The money goes overseas because they're from the Netherlands, not Jacksonville.

Betsy Reichert, building manager for the Aetna Building, said, "What I know about Star Inc. is they're not here. They're not a tenant. They were never here."
