Payment-transfer scams involve con artists who pretend to want to employ you. The con artist uses a job classified ad, either on line or in a newspaper, to lure you into a huge, possibly, trap. Desparetely seeing a job, the victim accepts the "position" while revealing information about yourself that no self-respecting employer would ever ask.
