The New York City Police Department is looking for a man who they say has been scamming job seekers.

Investigators believe the man seen above, who goes by the alias John Rosa, released a set of ads in a local Spanish newspaper listing available cleaning jobs in the tri-state area.

The ads ran the first few weeks of August.

Those who responded were directed to an office in the East Tremont section of the Bronx, where police say they were asked to pay to hold the position and for the uniforms.

When the victims later arrived at the job location, they were told the position did not exist.

So far, 11 victims have come forward.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
