According to the Federal Trade Commission, "Scammers know that finding a job can be tough.
To trick people looking for honest work, scammers advertise where real employers and job placement firms do.
They also make upbeat promises about your chances of employment, and virtually all of them ask you to pay them for their services before you get a job.
But the promise of a job isn't the same thing as a job. If you have to pay for the promise, it's likely a scam."
