Job Scams

Job scams are some of the most insidious. Scammers use job prospects to lure people into giving them money or vital information, only to phish the victim or defraud them of their hard-earned pay. 

Some people yearn for a better job, the next step up the ladder. Others are desperate to find any job they can get to stay afloat. Aspiration and desperation attract the worst of humanity, eager to prey upon the desperate or ambitious.
