BRISTOL, Va. -

An online scam is using a new tourist attraction to attract potential victims.

Staff members from the Birthplace of Country Music Museum contacted us about a bogus online job posting on Craigslist.

The museum staff is warning potential applicants that the museum does not use Craigslist as means for advertising openings and they currently do not have any open positions.

Officials believe this is likely a scam trying to collect personal information.

Staff members have also contacted police.
