"Online jobs with Google." The email subject line caught my eye.

My first thought was, "Who wouldn't want an online job with Google, one of the biggest companies in the world?"

But after a few clicks, it was clear something was amiss. I quickly discovered that some scammer is trying to get $2.97 out of my pocket for shipping and handling of a work-at-home kit from Google so I can post links and make $5,500 a month, as one person claims on the fake news website the scammers put up.
