A 33-year-old Salina man is out more than $1,000 in a work scam but his loss could have been much worse.

The Salina Journal reports the man answered an online ad for a position with Shell Global and was later told he got the job but would have to send $900 for a work permit.

The man sent the money through Moneygram, which charged him a $61 fee. He then was notified that he would need housing and told to wire $1,800 for the housing option he picked.

The man paid a $93 fee to send the money before calling Shell Global and being told the offer was a scam. He stopped the transfer of the $1,800 and got that back, but still had to pay the fee.
