    Default Credit Check for HR Block Hiring Process?

    Hi,
    I got a phone call about a position I applied like 45 days ago was on Missouri career source, and she said it's required to do background check and Credit check, and when I asked why credit check, she said because I will work with HR Block and will know their SS and Visa numbers. And she sent me an assessment through ProveIt@kenexa.com

    Is it true some companies will do a credit check as part of the hiring process or could it be a scam?

    Here is the job description:

    Yes some companies do check credit. A few that come to mind are banks and anything financial plus anything requiring a government security clearance. The main reason behind this to ensure that the applicant is not in dire financial straits which may make him/her susceptible to selling information or performing a negative act that could compromise data or client confidentiality.
