Fake Job Offers

Have you ever come across an ad that made an unbelievable claim about a job opportunity? Some of these claims include guaranteed job placement, no experience or special skills needed to qualify, or too-good-to-be-true wages. Some con artists try to sell catalogs listing companies supposedly hiring workers for various jobs, some of which are advertised as “high-paying positions overseas.” Unfortunately, if you buy the catalog, you’ll find the companies are not hiring, and the “money-back guarantee” will include requirements that are difficult to meet.
