Front Sites Con Job Seekers Into Giving Personal Information

Scam job websites, often known as front sites, are Internet sites that misrepresent themselves to the visitor in order to obtain something of value, to increase traffic, or to foster misinformation on behalf of another party. These types of sites are growing rapidly on the Internet.

Front and scam sites target job seekers who frequently are desperate for employment and are susceptible to front site and scam site deceptions.

AOL recently talked to VetJobs' owner Ted Daywalt, who has done extensive research on front sites to learn more about this practice and how job seekers can avoid being fooled.
