    More "work at home" scammers operate near Christmastime

    It's awful, but scammers want to take advantage of people needing more cash to buy gifts for loved ones, so they prey on their weakness by offering b.s. deals and broken promises on the phone or via email, usually. There's a great story here from CNN about one girl who got caught by such a scam. Even smart people can get caught up in the moment and lose a couple hundred bucks before they even realize what's happening to them!

    That makes sense. Scammers know that people want to earn money from their daily activities online. For this reason, people will do anything to get money.
