The Dangers of Online Job Hunting

A woman in Texas was recently arrested as she entered her local bank, charged with with conning a Florida Ebayer out of nine grand for a motorcycle that never existed.

Only thing is, "Bobbie-Jean" claims she's the one who was conned.

The fifty-one year old unemployed accountant said she accepted a job she found on for an overseas company. Part of her responsibilities included collecting payments from clients in the U.S. and wiring the dough to the UK.

But apparently the whole thing was a scam. And it's not the first time someone's been duped.
