Job scammers typically contact you via email, phone or letter and ask for money in the form of a fee in exchange for guaranteed employment.
They lure you in with jobs that require little effort for a high financial reward, and that appear to make money quickly.
Once you pay the fee you may not receive any job offers or are unlikely to be paid for any work you complete.
