The Federal Trade Commission and state attorneys general took another swipe this week at scams that target unemployed people, jointly or separately filing nine new lawsuits against alleged “con artists” who charge victims for bogus job leads.

The FTC announced that it has filed seven more lawsuits, bringing its total to 11 such job scam suits since spring in what it’s calling Operation Bottom Dollar. The lawsuits lodged in federal court this week, some in cooperation with state attorneys general, are against Government Careers Inc. in Arizona; Real Wealth Inc. in Missouri; Darling Angel Pin Creations Inc. and Resource Publishing Co. in Florida; Preferred Platinum Services Network LLC and Independent Marketing Exchange Inc. in New Jersey; and Abili Staff Ltd. in Texas.
