Scam jobs

The economy sucks. 

Maybe that's why I'm filing more and more complaints at, the National Do Not Call Registry. This morning's phone call warned me that as a senior citizen, I could die if I don't accept the free home security system being offered.
Just as I was getting ready to set up this post, this arrived in my in-box:
  • Be more than the typical worker. Do more than the typical worker. EARN MORE than the typical worker. Be a home-trepreneur! See how it worked for them and how it can work for you... [with a link].
Ummm... yeah.

Scam artists posing as employers are looking for you. While you're not dumb enough to click on the link or accept the "free" home security service, be aware that not all jobs are equal. 

The link above to a blog post suggests ways to smoke out the less obvious turkeys and b.s. artists. 

One more tip: trust your intution. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
