Regrettably, scammers are on the increase, with more and more fictitious jobs appearing on job boards, and more and more unsuspecting job seekers being conned into parting with their hard-earned money, or becoming victims of identity theft. 

A job scam occurs when a scammer poses as an employer or recruiter, and offers attractive employment opportunities which require that the job seeker to pay money in advance. This is usually under the guise of training, work visas, travel expenses or background and or credit checks that are required for the job. Once the money has been paid over the scammer disappears, and the job seeker is left with no job, and out of pocket.
