Consumers who fall for work-from-home schemes may lose money, their identity and end up in trouble with the law, the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) warns.

Work-from home scams are nothing new, and thanks to the anemic job market, seem to be proliferating like never before. But victims of these scams often help cybercriminals move stolen funds, the IC3 says, and due to their participation, may face criminal charges.
