Woman Claims Affair with Cain...Avoid Holiday Job Scams

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Good morning.  Here are some of the stories we're following:

Crime Stoppers is offering a $1000 reward for information in the murder of a local businessman. Steve Toms was killed earlier this month inside the Gold and Silver Trading Center, where he was the manager.  Anyone with information is being asked to call Crimestoppers at  706-653-3188. You can remain anonymous.

Laurie Fine, the wife of former Syracuse coach Bernie Fine, could possibly come forward today to comment on recently, released recorded phone conversations. The nephew of Fine's wife says she will make a statement today. She's expected to challenge the 2002 telephone conversation with one of her husband's accusers that appears to show she knew of the alleged abuse.

Herman Cain is fighting another battle of "he said, she said." This after at least four women accused the GOP presidential hopeful of sexual harassment. A fifth now says she had an affair with Cain that lasted more than a decade.

Some experts predicted up to 600,000 people would land a holiday job this year. But just to put that into perspective, there are about half a million people unemployed in Georgia. This means fierce competition as folks are desperate to find work, but more importantly, crooks are also desperate to take advantage of job seekers. We'll show you how to work scams this holiday season.
