Here's an inventive scam. A Miami couple placed ads in newspapers
offering $5000 a week for the job of chauffeuring strippers around. They got 43 applicants to wire them deposits of almost $1000 in order to secure this nonexistent dream job. Of course, they could probably have said, pay us
$5000 a week and we'll let you drive strippers around, and they would have still netted some victims.
