This blog is supported by sponsored links & ads. But “Eddy with a y” only personally recommends companies I trust and researched.
Scams have come a long way since envelope stuffing and chain letters. Most people just assume that scams are anything that requires money to work at home. But oh how times have changed. Yes there are still many scams trying to sell you pipe dreams, secrets or systems that will allegedly make you a few hundred dollars per day or weeks such as Rebate Processing, Typing/Data Entry, Google Money Scams, etc. But the far worst kinds are the ones that are cleverly disguised job offers that don't ask you for a dime such as reshipping packages, cashing checks or wiring money. Many of these scams will even use the brand or identity of legitimate companies to lure you into a sense of security.
As the owner of a work at home website Work At Home Careers.com that has been sited for helping people avoid scams by nationwide publications and news agencies, I know a little about these scams. So I've decided to update you with the latest scams on this blog. Look, this ain't rocket science.Scams tend to repeat themselves with slight variations so you'll start seeing a pattern as you continue to read the items listed below. A lot of times a scam will quack like duck, walk like a duck and talk like duck but call itself a golden goose. It doesn't matter. If it sounds like one of the scams listed below, then it's probably a scam. Don't let a different website name, job description, color, or name confuse. For instance Google Money Tree is a known scam so if another company calls itself Google Pesos Bush and exhibits many of the traits described in the Google Money Tree scams; It's probably the same scam. There is no need to try to convince yourself otherwise.
Don't pay for these pipe dreams or fall for fake jobs that just fall out the sky and sound too good to be true. If you want my legitimate non-traditional work at home recommendations click here.
