But the best that Time magazine can muster is crooked cleaning services and the “deposit this check and send us half” rouse? Job-search scams on the rise in the recession. Gimme a break. Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal and the New York Times are no better. They run the “human interest” tear-jerkers. “62 year old grandma taken for $1,000 by third-world scammer who needed to move $60 million out of the country.”
And you wonder why the big scams are fleecing millions of job hunters and HR departments of billions of dollars every year… Sorry, Suckers, “the news” doesn’t cover the $30/month that a few million of you spent for platinum job board memberships.
Anyone interested in a slightly used hand-screened $100k+ job? Or a few thousand of them? Pssst… Hey, Kid, we got ’em! Just fifty bucks!
The worst scams are committed in broad daylight run under our noses.
