Eddy SalomonMy #1 Free Way To Work At Home!

Hey, I'm Eddy with a Y. I've seen it all when it comes to making money online but most of is crap! But I finally found a way to make real money online that I can actually recommend!


Work At Home Scams

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. If you’re looking for a traditional job with no strings or fees attached then visit my Work At Home Companies page.

At the end of the day, if you spend some time reading many of the scams and the comments of the victims listed below, you’ll quickly become equipped to avoid any scam and see the BS from a mile away. But its up to you to take advantage of the information. Good luck.

Want To Know if A Company Is A Scam?

Watch the following video and in about 5 minutes, you should be able determine if a company is legitimate or a big scam! If you don’t have 5 minutes then here’s a simple tip, if it sounds to good to be true, then it is. Here’s another one, if your instincts are making you feel uneasy about a company or opportunity, that’s the gift God gave us to sense danger so we could avoid being eaten by a lion or something. These instincts are usually right when it comes to work at home as well. Follow them.

Hi, Eddy!…I’m still processing actually taking advice from someone I can trust! You really do seem to have consumers interests/security as a real priority. I have past experience with “networking” company’s like Amway, NSA water filters and Quorum personal/home security alarms and found that available info was only provided once I reached a certain income level/teir…I’ve also been researching LaBella Baskets and Ameriplan company’s. Although the BBB gives both of them A-A+ ratings, they do charge a monthly fee of $25-$139. They can call it what they want, but it’s still a membership charge for their services. I’m so glad I ‘stumbled’ on this sight! I’m registering with Wealthy Affiliates immediately and am going to give it my best effort!
Sincerely,
Roger R.

    Eddy Salomon - December 11, 2013 Reply

    Hey Roger, thanks for chiming in buddy. I know this industry will have you believing everyone is out to get you. But there are some of us out here that aren’t. So I’m glad you haven’t become jaded and can read my blog objectively. We’re all trying to make money online. But we don’t have to scam people to do it.

    In any event, I just want to address your comment about the membership fees. Please don’t use that as a way to judge a company. Every business will usually require some type of investment. Fortunately most home based businesses don’t require the investment an offline business would require. Think about how much it cost to open a physical store and keeping the lights on. So there are usually ongoing fees to run a business.

    You just want to be sure you’re paying fees for a legitimate business. Or if you’re not interested in a business and the fees associated with them, then a job is a better option. So just keep that in mind.

    And don’t get me started on folks who solely rely on the BBB as validation for a business’s legitimacy. Read my take on it here:http://www.workathomenoscams.com/2008/01/14/bbb-work-at-home/

    Anyway, hope to see you in WA. It’s a great community and you should learn a lot there as well. Take care.

i went to a site that had jennifer on it..she talked about earning money by sending e-mails,,and making money..paid..now cant get on site.SCAM, how do i get my money back

    Eddy Salomon - September 5, 2012 Reply

    Els, I don’t know how you get your money back since you were vague about what the site’s address was. Saying a site had Jennifer on it doesn’t mean anything because that could be a thousand sites. That being said, if you used a credit card, I would suggest contacting your credit card company and have them reverse the charges. In the future, follow the steps of the scam video listed here on this page to research any company before giving any money. Never assume anything is legitimate until you do your research even if you find the opportunity on a legitimate site because sometimes those listings are ads or sponsors like you would find on your favorite TV network. Good luck.

Don’t know how long it’s been out there but Florida One, Inc.(www.itdac.com) is a scam. I’ve been ripped off big time by them. I’ve filed the reports (IC3, FTC, ripoff report, scambook). Is there anyone out there who could possibly help me? Support group? Organization?
Just want to let you know this is a scam. Don’t get taken like I did.

GP Global advertises on Craigslist for a Receptionist position them asks you to use Yahoo IM to contact them for an interview.  They want to send you a check or money order to cash, take your $100 bonus and use funds for Peachtree software, then send the balance to their shipping manager….scams are everywhere, thank you for this blog for people like me who really want to work from home, but know better than to trust something that sounds too good to be true.

    Eddy Salomon - May 8, 2012 Reply

    Thanks for sharing this with us! I agree a lot of scams can be avoided just by using common sense. But sometimes our desperation gets the better of us.

    At the end of the day, if one always does their research before joining any company, you avoid a lot garbage. I’m glad you found our site. I’m confident you will be able to find something legitimate here.

Report all email recruiting that involves you sending them a check of any kind to:

http://www.secretservice.gov/contact.shtml   to their electronic crimes task force.

ILUVUSA2 - May 2, 2012 Reply

Craft World sham.   What they do is send you a check (which is bogus) and they want you to deposit it (now they have your bank account number and your signature).   They want you to send them the 90% of the check and you “keep” your 10%, which you earned.  Then they bounce their check, you have written them one against what they sent you, so you are screwed out of whatever the 90% was.

And the website is wonderful, it looks legit.  Buyer beware.

Be aware of Compass Electronics GMBH, they offered me a position as a Supply Chain Manager. This home based job has scammed my bank account via a wire transfer for $4,955. I answered a job posting on Career Builder .com.

I would like to inform everyone of the scam http://www.linkpostingjobs.com is running.  They claim they guarantee $10/link you post for them on directories.  Only to find out after you post the link they reject it for payment using a bogus reason, ie. There must be another link on that directory.  Which is a flat out lie because directories will not post duplicate links.

I have called them out on their scam to which they will not respond and I have filed a report with IC3.  It’s about time we all come together and get these scammers removed from the web!  Thanks for giving us a place to inform others!

This company called Albian Energy Ltd contacted me to a Rep for their oil company in the Southwestern part of the United States. When in reality they wanted be to reship packages for them that they had shipped to my address.  It had not been what they described so I called the companies that the package came from to find out how they were paid for cause I had to ask why would you pay shipping from Pa to Ok then pay it back to NH didnt make any sense  That is when I started adding in the blanks along with the help of the companies doing a backward trace of the package.

Avoid adds looking for “Payroll” (work at home) $1000-$1500 a month. Names of guys: Bernard Addison, Desmond Howard and/or James Williams. They will work you for a month then not pay you. Claim they have a family emergency and will pay you after that is cleared up. Then ask you to work for their co-worker, who “will absolutely pay you” but not for the work you did the previous month.

A package forwarding scam came to me through a person named Robert Pirchner supposedly with Springleaf Consulting company.  I received electronics and forwarded them to Russia supposedly to their office located there.  I realize now it is scam and have discontinued this.  I know I will not get paid and could possible face legal charges as an identify theft and stolen property accessory.

The BONExpert.com is a scam. They have their customers to transfer mail. They will send the packages by UPS to your home. They will sent the postage labels to your email account, so that you can forward the mail. After you work a month, they promise to mail you a paycheck. Good luck with receiving a paycheck.

I’d like to report on the six figure program scam.  I signed up for their programand within a day I had someone from Prosper calling me asking me to use my home equity so I could be “coached” on the program.  I watched all of the videos, followed all of the steps, bought domain names and web hosting and still haven’t made a penny.  I even tested it by going to my website ang ordering a product from one of my affiliates to see if I would get my commision and guess what? NO MONEY!  Has anyone had success with this program or have any advice?  I sure would appreciate any feedback

United States: Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, North Central,
Southwest and West.

The study will measure customer satisfaction
based on 42 specific service-related measures grouped into six key factors
that impact overall wireless carrier performance. These are (in order of
importance):

call performance and reliability
(26%);
customer service (17%);
service plan options (17%);
brand image (14%);
cost of service (14%); and
billing (12%).
Over the past three-year period, overall
satisfaction has fluctuated significantly as changes in the industry, such
as the recent carrier mergers, have influenced the customer experience.
The study will seek to find if satisfaction has improved since 2009,
especially in areas where the industry has been aggressively marketing new
services and offering more attractive pricing options. For example, the
service plan options and cost of service factors receive the largest
increase in satisfaction ratings from 2008.

Consumer Reports’ Annual Cell Phone Survey
released in the January 2007 issue shows that call quality remains an
aggravation for many cell phone users. In fact, 34 percent of previous
survey respondents who switched carriers during the past three years
attributed their decision to poor phone service, including dropped calls
and no service at home.

Your
Assignment:

When you conduct a customer satisfaction survey,
what you ask the customers is important. How, when and how often you ask
these questions are also important. However, the most important thing
about conducting a customer satisfaction survey is what you do with their
answers and this makes your assignment vital.

You will make calls to a list of subscribers
drawn from different Carriers within your area which will be provided for
you weekly. These subscribers indicated willingness to take part in this
survey. You will ask 7 key questions as listed below:

1. What Carrier are you using presently? How long
have you used this Carrier?
2. How satisfied are you with the service you
received?
3. How satisfied are you with the company
overall?
4. Do you suffer call drops? How
often?
5. Are you satisfied with the bills and prices?
Do you feel cheated?
6. Is the Company responsive to your
needs/concerns? Do you feel isolated?
7. How likely are you to recommend this service
to others?

You will type their responses, bind it and mail
to my office address as below.

Your Tools and
Pay.

A mobile phone with a Monthly unlimited service
plan will be provided for you. A portable easy-to-use Four-in-one Machine
with fax, copy, print and binding capabilities manufactured by PRINEX will also be
provided for you completely free. Payments for these items including
shipping will be provided by one of our sponsors. You will be
paid $750 weekly. Essentially, you will be
required to work at least 3-4 hours daily and recommended hours are
between 5pm – 8pm. However, you are allowed to choose a time convenient
for you. Weekly list must be covered. This project will last at least for
a year and Certificate of Participation will be issued.

Please indicate if you are willing to
proceed.

 I have followed your suggestions on googling and researching through the Better Business Bureau on a company called Tutoring Doctor.  It has an A- rating with the BBB primarily due to the length of time in operation.  Do you have any insight you can provide to determine if this would be a successful endeavor.  We currently work in the education field and would prefer to have the freedoms and opportunities working for ourselves that tutoring may possibly provide.  We are also considering eventually relocating to the UK where we have family and would be looking at a company where we would be able to operate from wherever we reside; US or UK.  The information disclosing costs, etc cannot be accessed with providing contact information.  Reluctantly, I have provided them with this and am waiting to be contacted.  Any suggestions you can provide would be very helpful.  We have spent hours trying to find a potential on-line business and want to proceed properly.  We are not necessarily convinced that tutoring would be the correct avenue to pursue so any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and thank you for the insightful information on your web page.

    Honestly I’ve never heard of this company. But if you did follow the steps in our scam video then you should have feedback about this company. I wouldn’t depend only on the BBB but more on what various other sites and people say which should have come up with you did the google search we described in the video above. Ultimately if there is anything that makes you feel uneasy, then just pass on it. This isn’t the industry where you want to ignore your instincts. We provide enough of proven and legitimate options here:

    and http://www.workathomenoscams.com/recommendations that you don’t have to take unneccessary risks. Just my two cents.

Hi, How are you? I was just wondering if you know if (the internet profits dot com) is a scam or (tops home profit system dot com.) I’ve read your web site and I still can’t tell. I’m always doubting myself.

    Eddy Salomon - September 29, 2011 Reply

    Watch the scam video above and follow what it says. This is exactly why we have it there for you. It should reveal the answer you’re looking for. If there is a doubt in your mind about a given company, just don’t join it. It’s not worth the risk especially when we already legitimate and proven companies here:

    Don’t gamble when it comes to work at home. It’s unnecessary when you have resources like this that give you good companies to work with.

Hi, Emilyclifton: I looked into this, but never signed up with them and after reading what was there, especially the payments, I decided it was not for me. They charge a monthly fee for a website. If I remember correctly, the website was billed at 59.00 per month. Also, if I understood the pay grid they had at their site, the pay is low compared to the time and effort required. Most of the videos they have on the site didn’t work so some information I felt that I needed in order to come to a better understanding of all that is required was unavailable. That’s my 2 cents but if I’m wrong about the pay grid, someone else may be able to bring better understanding regarding that. It seemed to me, from what I saw is that many of the salaries on the grid averaged out to about 800.00 annually. Correct me if I’m wrong–anybody. Thanks.

Beware of Ozio Media: I had a bad experience with Ozio Media as a proofreader. On a Thurs. night, I reviewed a 15-page guideline, then a one-hour online training session. I also had to pay ($25) for copyscape to verify the articles I proofed. The rate as a proofreader is $.34 for each 500-word article. It’s required that you read 20-30 articles a day. When I applied I specified I would work 6 p.m.-10 p.m. At 8:40 p.m. Thursday night–after my training sessions, I was told to start work immediately. I was too tired to proof articles, which were poorly written. The next day (Friday) in the afternoon, my team leader inquired where I was. I informed him I would start at 6 p.m. I was immediately informed that I was no longer a part of their team, and my account was being canceled. I’m pretty savvy and do my research on companies, but this one slipped by. I got burned.

    Sophiarbates - September 12, 2011 Reply

    I’m not sure about Ozio Media… they do have quite a clear 24 hour deadline for stuff no matter when you want to work and if you cannot meet it you are meant to refuse a project. I am waiting for payment from them for 2 weeks worth of work, they have said it will be with me by Wed / Thurs at the latest, if I do not receive payment I will update. Not sure if your issue was poor communication on their part about their expectations.

Visit our reshipping article http://www.workathomenoscams.com/2008/10/07/package-forwarding-reshipping-job-or-scam/ and the read the comments listed there and what others have done.

The one thing you can do to combat scams like this is spread the word on scam sites like this which others have done for the other reshipping scams. You’ll see many people reporting them on our reshipping scam page.

I recently recieved a position with a company called Usspers.com from the careerbuilder.com website it literally a reshipping company. Could nt find anything with the BBB and when calling the sites number the numbers disconnected. Now for the past few days I’ve recieved packages to be shipped out at a later date.  But its not to late, what are the steps needed to take to avoid be involved in this scam (I believe). And I want to prevent this from happening to others  I also gave my personal info for deposit reason ,but now I’m worried about my ID being used and me not even knowing about it.  How can I stop this and stop them from hurting others

We’ve reviewed it here:
http://www.workathomenoscams.com/2007/09/25/is-ameriplan-usa-a-work-at-home-scam/ and the recent feedback hasn’t been good since they laid off tons of their old brokers who basically built their company. Read the review and comments. Good luck.

I have been doing some research for a company called AmeriPlan. It sounds like an excellent position for a stay @ home mom. It is accredited with the BBB & I have been able to contact a live person, shocking enough! Do you have any feedback on this company?

I wish i had read this article one day sooner. i got caught in one of these “buy the kit” deals that had Google’s name on the ad, and now am trying to cancel the “membership.” Trying to beat their deadline so i don’t get charged the amount they put forth as a one-time fee. Eddy, i’m still learning here. I need to read more, apparently.

    Eddy Salomon - June 27, 2011 Reply

    Better late than never my friend. You can find the cancellation information buried deep in the terms of conditions probably at the bottom of the website you visited and bought this nonsense form. If worst comes to worst, just contact your credit card company asap. Then monitor your statements for the next 2-3 months for the other nasty fees that pop up.

    At the end of the day this scam has lead you here. Now you have a lot more weapons at your disposal to better learn about this industry and the crap to avoid. As long as you’re not afraid to read and take action, your luck is going to change dramatically here.

    So just view it as a lesson learned. That being said I recommend reading the following pages:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/workathomeguide
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/recommendations

    And be sure you read all the scams listed on this page and the comments on each of the pages regarding the scams. Scam artist are lazy and just repeat the same nonsense with some minor variations. So the more you read about them, the easier it’s going to be to spot them in the future. Hope this all helps my friend. Glad you found us.

Eddy thank you. I lost money to working at home scams. Thank you for teaching me all about research, I heard workathome on the radio and thought no way would they advertise a scam.  After many hours of research I did what you said and I have to say not sending money to work has saved me so much money . Thank you.

    You’re welcome. It’s all about doing your research. As long as you do that you’ll avoid losing money or being scammed. There are some legitimate home based businesses out there that is safe to invest in. But if a home based business is not what you’re looking for than you know to focus only on jobs like the ones we list daily here: http://www.workathomenoscams.com/jobs I’m just glad you’re getting educated about the industry and learning how to avoid the pitfalls out there.

    You’ve answered your own question. As we said in our scam video if you can’t find feedback either way, pass on an opportunity. Why be the guinea pig? Furthermore if it sounds too good to be true 99.9% of the time it is. Never ignore your instincts with work at home opportunities. And don’t force the issue. Opportunities that are good will have feedback for the most part.

The today’ssituation on the financial market requires us to open and fill several ofthese job positions within our company. This opening will help our companyto reduce the time it takes to receive funding from orders that we receiveeach month and we offer you one of the highest incomes on the market todayand the minimal expenditures of time. With the number of orders we have we cannot put them on hold for fear oflosing our customers, secondly we cannot cash these payments from the USsoon enough, as international checks take about 28 working days to cashanywhere in Europe. We lose a lot of time and money each month because wehave money transfer delays. Our clients could pay us where we want bysending checks to an US address. What we need you to do is to provide us anaddress where you can receive our customer checks. We need someone who canreceive the money through this method of payment. Regarding the checkprocess all you have to do is to receive the checks our customers will sendto your address, take them to your bank, cash them and send the remainderamount to us after deducting all fees incurred and your commission. You willalways take your commission upfront. All fees for transferring the fundswill be supported from our share. Bonuses will apply for cashing checkswithin 24 hours upon receiving a check. We make direct contact for sales of products. Once orders are received andprocessed we deliver the product to our customer (usually through USPS). Thecustomer receives and checks the product and proceeds to send the payment.We accept all forms of payment but most of our customers pay using BankChecks and so to solve this problem and not lose any of our customers wehave decided to open this new job position. This job is legal according tothe U.S. legislation as it is today. Local money transfers take but a fewhours, so it will give us a possibility to get customer’s payment almostimmediately. PAYMENT AND SALARY:For example you receive a check as payment for 3000.00 USD, you deduct yourcommission (10%): 300.00 USD and then send to us the balance: 2700.00 USD.In the first month you will receive around 15-20 orders under 3,000.00 USDto process and after checking your performance records during that firstmonth the orders you will receive, may increase from 3,000.00 upwards to6,000.00 USD. For example 20 transactions each around 3000.00 USD gives youa total income of 6,000.00 USD per month and after establishing a closeco-operation with us you’ll be able to operate with larger orders and you’llbe able to earn more. You will also deduct fees that are related to this job(gasoline, western union fees, bank commissions, etc.) from our balance, notfrom your commissions. At first the checks you will receive will vary from:$500.00 to $3,000.00. We will also send you a 1099 Form for tax deduction onyour part. Our payments will be issued out in your name and you can havethem cashed in your existing bank account, we don’t accept newly createdbank accounts because it slows the cashing process. Deduct your percentageand forward the balance to the company attorney manager via a western unionmoney transfer, the name will be given to you later after cashing a payment.This job takes only 3-7 hours per week. You’ll have a lot of free time fortaking up another job; you’ll get good income and a regular job. This job isvery challenging and you should understand it. We are looking only for theemployee who satisfies our requirements and will be an earnest assistant.We have health insurance and the 401K retirement savings plan as well as allthe other standard benefits that a major company usually provides.Unfortunately we can only start talking about this after the first month haspassed since you’re working for us. We consider the first month as a trialperiod. In any case you do not have to pay for anything in advance; thereare no hidden costs for performing this job.

This one is definitly a scam. They tried to make me believe that I was talking with an agent, but I was getting the same automated answers over and over again. They wanted to chharge me for a kit that would supposedly make me a lot of money; bu they would continue to take out $99 each money.

There is a package forwarding scam going on with a “company” called Master Fulfillment Group Inc.. After exploring this website (Work At Home No Scams.com) I went to their website and found it was an exact copy of Atlast Fulfillment except for the contact information. When I researched their claims of being on the Inc.500 list I found it was Atlast Fulfillment that was actually on the list. They got me for a month of forwarding packages for them.

So BEWARE of this and don’t be like me and not research a company thoroughly before you start doing a service for them.

If there IS a real work at home job that a disabled man of 40 out there, PLEASE, let me know about it!!

Good luck everyone.

There is opposition in all things. If there are legit companies, there are scams, too, unfortunately. I haven’t been a victim of scams myself, yet I know that it is wise to report the issue when you experience them so these will be stopped.

    That is a great way of viewing it. It’s definitely like ying and yang. Great observation. I definitely feel you should follow your advice about reporting when you get scammed. The more light shed on the scam artist, the more likely someone will be lucky enough to avoid it because they stumbled on your report. So do your part when you have the opportunity.

Eddy Salomon - February 10, 2011 Reply

Hi,

Thanks for sharing this scam with us.

All of the jobs have a flag a job link. So hopefully you used it to let us know which job listing this was. Unfortunately it’s very hard to detect these type of scams unless you’ve actually gone ahead and applied for the job. All the job boards have these type of really hidden scams.

However what we’ve done is included a warning in every job listing found on http://www.workathomenoscams.com/jobs which reads:

“WARNING: The job above was pre-screened to the best of our ability. However if you’re asked to cash checks/money orders, accept packages or reship packages as part of your duties, it is a scam. Flag the job using the button below and feel free to report the scam on our scam page. ”

So as long as people are reading the job description carefully which includes this warning, they should easily be able to avoid these scams. Either way, thanks for reporting this.
I’m sure others will be able to avoid it.

As long as people continue to follow my advice about researching companies, these scams won’t prosper even if they’re cleverly disguised.

Topcop128 - February 8, 2011 Reply

I found a job on your website from a company called Trenchless Technology. I did a little research and found that the company does, in fact, exist, so I sent in an application and resume.
I did an interview by Yahoo IM and was hired.
I was supposed to take a two week training course, two hours a day and get paid $18 per hour. After the training, I would work full time at $23 per hour which sounded reasonable.
My duties would include purchasing, communicating with clients, accounts receivable/payable, etc.
I was still convinced this was a real job until I was sent a cashier’s check for $2500.00 to purchase office equipment such as a laptop, desk, barcode reader and some other stuff. When I received the check via UPS is when I realized it might be a scam. The cashier’s check was fraudulent.
Luckily, as a private investigator, I did not deposit the check but called the bank and learned that the check was a fraud.
The guy used the name Mark Bruce, email: hrbruce@rocketmail.com.
When I confronted him via IM, he knew that he had been caught and had a very difficult time explaining himself.
This particular job listing is posted on workathomenoscams.com and thought you might consider removing it from your listings.

I am not sure, but I think I just got scammed from someone who said he got my resume from CareerBuilder. His name is Donald Ram and his company is XP Expedited, LLC in Amsterdam and his email is an @live.com I am supposed to receive packages, and distribute the contents to recipients in Europe. But there was no explanation of the contents. The agreement cited $2000/ mo plus commission for doing this. A little red flag went up when he told me that I wouldn’t need to pay taxes on my earnings b/c it’s coming from overseas.

So, now they have my information, including my drivers’ license. What do I do now? How do I protect my identity?

    Eddy Salomon - January 22, 2011 Reply

    This is just another version of the package forwarding scam we listed on the page above.
    So be sure you read that article. Now that they do have your information, I would get some identity theft monitoring service and keep active for a very long time. Because you never know if they go and sell your information to other scam artist for identity theft or to target you with another scam.

    Your bank may have some identity theft protection plan you can purchase. I’m sorry you didn’t find this page sooner. That being said, I encourage you to study the video listed above and all the scams listed on this page and the comments so you avoid this in the future. Always do your research when it comes to this industry. If something sounds too good to be true, it is. Follow your instincts.

    Something very similar happened to me, i applied for a job on snagajob.com and i didn’t even interview, didn’t send them my resume but i faxed them a signed contract with a pic of my photo id. and then i was sent a link, the link works but nothing is where it says its going to be, i then tried emailing the lady who sent me the link and she has blocked me so it wont go through, i tried the numbers and they are disconnected i went to their website and the number on there sounds like someones home machine. Lesson learned, just frustrating. their website is:
    http://www.freelancemysteryshopper.com/
    for some reason im still hoping that they will come through.

    Eddy Salomon - February 17, 2011 Reply

    Get over that hope real quick. Scammers prey on this type of hope. Follow your instincts next time and always do your research. Never let desperation get the better of you with this industry otherwise you will fall victim again. You need to set up some identity protection alert service because chances are your id may be stolen.

Eddy Salomon - January 19, 2011 Reply

Sabrina,

Thanks for sharing unfortunately many of these scam artist will use legitimate companies names because they’ve learned many of you are doing your research now. But even when they do that it’s easy to spot. Once there is a mention of cashing checks, money orders or re-shipping packages it’s a scam. That’s why it’s important to read many of the scams listed on this page and the comments. Because then you’re able to spot patterns that are easily identifiable even when scam artist use legit company’s names. So be sure you really spend a few hours studying this page.

In any event, we list pre-screened jobs here:

I was scammed by a group of people claiming to be from Ipsos (a legitimate market research company). It was one of those mystery shopping/check cashing scams, only with a twist – they posted jobs on Craigslist and other job search websites, and after you send a resume, they call you back and interview over the phone before you receive the check. Everything looks professional but it’s all a scam.

Laura,

Thanks for sharing your experience. It’s sad when companies do things like this. But that being said don’t let such experiences lead you to over generalizations about the industry as a whole. If a parent decides to go and drive drunk and hurt people, does it mean all parents should be avoided? No it just means that one parent was a screw up. The same goes for paid online surveys. Some companies are better than others. You just have to adjust accordingly. Here are some alternatives:

And let’s say you’re just turned off to surveys all together, then try some other non-traditional opportunities: http://www.workathomenoscams.com/recommendations

or focus on traditional jobs:

Laura Walitsky - January 19, 2011 Reply

I’ve been trying Opinion Outpost and Survey Spot since the end of October. In the beginning I was getting innumerable surveys to try and qualified for most of them. Recently on Survey Spot I reach “810 “points”. You need a minimum of 1000 to receive a payment. Suddenly I am getting just one or two a day and not qualifying for any or they’ve been closed already. It seems to me that they know I’ve come close to requesting a payment and they are not letting me get those last points I need. The same for Opinion Outpost, lots and lots of surveys for the first 2 1/2 months, now I am 15 points away from being eligible to received $20 and I am not getting surveys, the few I am getting, after answering half the questions, they decide I’m not eligible. Very frustrating. A lot of time spent trying to get a mere $40, which these days won’t even fill my tank of gas. I don’t suggest people try the online surveys,

Lydia,
Did you follow the steps in my scam video above? If not, please try that which is what I do when I’m researching a company. I’m not too suspicious because the job is actually related to your experience. But nonetheless follow the steps in the scam video. Be mindful of the scams listed above. If the job requires anything like cashing checks, money orders or wiring money than pass on it. If it also involves receiving equipment such as major electronics that you have to reship elsewhere, then pass as well. Hope this helps.

They ask you to sign up and then follow the steps, everything you click on takes you back to the small form requesting payment. I’m very upset by this. What can I do?

    Sorry to hear you got scammed. We actually covered these fake newspaper scams here: http://www.workathomenoscams.com/2009/06/07/fake-news-site-work-at-home-scam/
    You should try to contact your credit card company and see if they’ll reverse the fees. You should also monitor your account regularly over the next couple of months because that little fee
    tends to jump up to some bigger fees in a few days or within a month or so. So stay in contact with your bank and check your statements regularly if not daily for the next 2-3 months. I hope this helps.

Hmong Daw [mrsdaw1@live.co.uk]
Dear Friend.

I am the above named person, who is now undergoing medical treatment. I was married to late Engr Vikrom Daw who worked With the Embassy for Nine years. We were married for eleven years without a child. My late husband Engr Vikrom Daw died on the 27th September 2003 St. George’s Hospital Sheredtch London after a brief illness that lasted for only four Days. I decided not to re-marry or get a Child outside my matrimonial home, because as a good Christian my religion is against it says the Bible and I lived a happy and good Christian life with my late husband. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $450.000.00 (Four Hundred and Fifty Thousand United States Dollars) with one Finance house Presently in Bangkok Thailand. I have been in the hospital for eight months suffering from breast cancer. The 1st surgery has been conducted and I lost one of my breast and still have the pains that makes me crying every day and night looking up to God to save my life.

Recently my Doctor told me that another surgery will be conducted and I may not survive it because, the cancer has grown to bad. Having known my condition, I decided to donate the $450.000.00 (Four Hundred and Fifty Thousand United States Dollars) my late husband deposited with a finance house in Bangkok to charity and the less privilege through your help. For Example the Orphan, Old people’s home and also to the homeless I took this decision because I don’t have any child that will inherit these Funds. I want you to always pray for me as I have no life again says my doctor. It will be my pleasure to receive your sincere response and promise that you will carry out this task as a good samaritan and to the glory of GOD. I will direct you to my late husband attorney who will help you to secure the necessary legal documents for the $450.000.00 (Four Hundred and Fifty Thousand United States Dollars) to be transferred to you and I want you to assure me that you will use this funds judiciously.

I am waiting for your response to my humble request.

God bless you and your good family

Mrs. Hmong Daw.

Dear Mark B. Wannamaker,

Compliments of the season to you and your family. Please, kindly be patient and go through this email carefully which I believe is a message that will be useful to both of us.
I have a client called by name, late Mr. Robert Wannamaker, who died as the result of Colon cancer on the 8th Feb 2009.

I have come to seek your kind cooperation to work with me in this project for you to stand as the next of kin to my late client’s fund before it is confiscated by the bank or the government. My late client deposited the sum of ($4.5M) and this bank has informed me to look for the next of kin, or the account will be appropriated.

I want to seek your consent to present you as the next-of-kin and beneficiary of my named client, since you have the same last name, so that the proceeds of this account can be paid to you. Then we can share the amount on a mutually agreed-upon percentage.

All legal documents to back up your claim as my client’s next-of-kin will be provided. All I require is your honest cooperation to enable us see this transaction through.

This will be performed under a legitimate arrangement that will protect you from any breach of the law. Thank you as you read this e-mail and I shall wait to receive your positive response.

Yours sincerely,

Mark B Wannamaker

Hello Eddie,

I am receiving SSDI and Social Security has said that this time there will be no help from them job-wise. The reason is I have a seizure disorder which has cost me in the past including my last job with WOW! Internet, Cable and Phone. I have been sending scams to IC3 (FBI). They are getting more professional Using websites that work. See in 1999 I was the unfortunate person who was Nigerian Rebel check and wire transfer scheme. I was responsible for $19,000. ‘Nuff said. So initially I saw your site and have seen people just wanting to work. Geez it is hard enough for people who have no disabilities in this economy. Makes even harder for those that do. I’m not quite where to go with this but, alot of people don’t believe in my type of disability. I have an implant (VNS) and take 2 meds. Well, let me go now – other people need a say

I got an e-mail from an Andy Walker who said he saw my name on Craigslist. He needed someone to wire money to someone in Africa named Mary Adeoye. He would pay me $200 to do so. Once I got the money orders, I would deposit them and once the money clears, keep $200 for myself and wire the rest of the money to Mary. So, when the money orders came to me, I deposited them into my account and they cleared after a few days. But something just didn’t sit right with me about the whole thing. God was trying to tell me something. I did a google search using words like scam, Andy Walker, Mary Adeoye and sure enough, I came up with various testimonies about people who have been scammed or were tempted to be scammed with wire transfers. Fortunately, I called my bank and explained the situation to me and they are sending the money orders back to me. Once I have them, I was advised to contact my local authorities. Just goes to show you, you have to be so careful.

    Steve,
    Glad you realized this was a scam before anything bad happened. That’s exactly why we listed an article on this page about these fake check and money order scams.
    Hopefully more people will become knowledgeable about these scams and avoid it as you were fortunate enough to do. It’s like the saying goes, if it sounds too good to be true,
    it usually is.

A ptc site called Clicking Formula is a scam. They promise good pay for clickers, then don’t follow through. I didn’t lose any money with them, I just lost time. They kept asking me to upgrade, but I didn’t. I couldn’t find any information on them, good or bad so I had to find out for myself.

I started taking a survey there and it took about 20 minutes of answering their question’s for them to say oh you dont qualify, Do you want to take another survey. So I did I must have answered 50 – 60 questions took a little bit of time because I wanted to answer them the way I felt about the topic because it was about a important topic. I felt like the survey was about over and then another screen pops up oh sorry your not qualified to fill out this survey???? WTH
They get all the answers they want then tell you your qualified to take this survey….
I have accounts on other survey websites and the qualifing question only take a couple minutes not a half an hour… what a bunch of bs

    Eddy Salomon - August 6, 2010 Reply

    James,

    I totally hear you. There have been a few other people complaining about the same issue with other survey companies. That’s why it’s always important to do the research which is why we have the scam video listed in the article above. Everyone assumes that because there are some legitimate survey companies like mysurvey, pineconeresearch, etc, that all of them are. But as you have seen first hand that’s not the case. At the end of the day, due dilegence is always the key when joining any work at home company. You avoid a lot of time and money wasted. Fortunately you didn’t lose any money. I would encourage you to visit my recommendations page where I have hand picked some of my top opportunities:

Have you heard about Imperia (IBC) ? IBC is scam period. IBC took advantage to solicit to Deaf people. I suggest to check Deaf Newspaper.com, one deaf guy who is a Deaf reporter story about IBC. I feel regret for Deaf Community is lack of business and investment, they should check BBB ratings also S.E.C. Headquarter in Washington,D.C.
I saw through by youtube.com deaf guy put the story on video. He said that he has been supporting for Deaf Community, he is alert to Deaf Community. Many Deaf people got mad and stabed IBC whoa!!! Bloomberg investment made annoucement IBC has no business license and untrusted business.

Dear Eddy:

This is what I found.

Job offers as such are nothing more than a marketing ploy or deceptive marketing practices by non other than Mr. Alex Difrawi aka Alec Difrawi aka Ayman A. Difrawy aka Ayman A. El-Difrawi aka Alex Simon dba The Internet Company internet-company.com dba JobNab.com dba Career Network career-network.com dbaThree Stars Media dba 3Starsinc dba Three Stars Inc dba Internet Solutions Corporation and his many
other aliases. Mr. Difrawi goal is to get you to sign up for continuing education. He should say outright what it is he’s peddling.

An Example of What ScamFraudAlert seek from Mr. Difrawi Is Good Business Practices
Defrawi does have a history, a felony fraud conviction for a federal jobs scam in the 1990′s where he took advance fees for non-existence jobs.

    Eddy Salomon - July 21, 2010 Reply

    This is an example of misleading advertisement. Okay so in short, he’s making it seem like there is a legit job offer but to get it, you need to sign up for one the continuing education offers which he’s obviously an affiliate of and gets paid when you do. Then once you do and he makes his money he probably claims the job is no longer available. That makes more sense now. Thanks for being more clear about what the actual details of the scam are.

I just wanted to say that the way you quickly respond 2 each and every comment…and with the all nurturing capacity you are gifted with…well, in this world it is rare and exquisite to see. When someone is scammed, their first feelings are anger-guilt-embarrassment. And– we all have been, on every educational and income level, at some point in our lives. At the end of the day you let each person air their feelings and them console them…then with one simple message lift them back up.
You are gifted on levels beyond home employment. I salute you :) thank you and hope you have the same beautiful encouragement in your life…

Ok so one of the company’s I told you about “Womens Dream Team” they tell you they give you a webbsite to sell things but not until the end, and it’s a company I never heard of. And they tell you get your own website and it only costs 38.00. But after you won’t sell much Because they really want you to buy the whole package, of course with a discount. Off off of 320.00, you pay 120.00. And remember you should buy the whole package to know how it works. This is what I mean, I checked it out and they stated they have one BBB awards. Ah No here is there rating. They got a big fat F. They cannot verify the company nor can they say how long it has been up in business. So what they do is have certain Key ladies with these great sayings, and I admit I never hed to look for a job at, and it looked inviting and they actually have a good web video. But after it’s all said and done the lower person repeadly calls, e-mails. I Tell her I am broke and she would say ” We have to get you started right away”. So after all that 3 months later she still calls and I am not interested, her boss is sitting in california raking in the money, No thank you. I just wanted to share how wonderful this service is and I really appreciate eddy, he is great. If it wasn’t for him oh gosh I don’t even want to think about it. And also the e-mail scams for the millions they want you to inherit, They are using the FBI name so I reported them, and don’t give them your name. I actually laugh everytime they came up with a new e-mail but FBI thats pretty serious. So thanks agin eddy and if you find a new job for me, please let me know. And where’s the spell check on these comments? Ha-Ha.

I know this one isn’t a scam but, the one website Ether stated in no certain terms they would not take any money out of your account, but guess what? they did and later they can take more money out of your account if you read there terms and conditions. Also DNA Associates ya it’s free free free as they stated, I listened to there webcast and after you get the free there is a fee a huge one to get paid. And where are these license plate numbers going. The BBB can’t figure it either it’s a scam. Also dream works states they got an award from the BBB I didno’t see one and when you watch there video for 40 minutes at the end they want you to sell some products and buy them and it only costs 32.00 but you need to buy the big package for 120.00. and don’t give them your phone number, you tell them your broke and there answer is, then you need to get started right away. I have been doing some looking to and Eddy sure has helped. This would be a great job to help people. I went on a website where people are saying “Help I have no where to go what do I do” on Help.com and you would not believe how many disabled people or family members or young teens there are.

We think you’d be a great addition to our staff!

After reading countless resumes, we think you’re one of the few people we’d like to work with. And we want you to come in for an interview.

Management REQUIRES us to check up on the backgrounds and credit histories of our future staff members, due to the presence of highly sensitive information in and around our office.

Visit this link to get your credit report; it’s free, and is NOT a “credit pull” and won’t harm your credit at all. DON’T send your private info by email. All we need is your verification number to set you up for an interview. We’ll take a look at all the information during the interview.

Let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you!

Hi Eddy…Well this one is claims to be a BBB member..here’s the deal. You click on a link (in Craigslist alot) it brings you to “the Online Business.” It’s a long video pitch about living your dreams, etc. If you want more info…$9.95 refundable. The 9.95 turns out to be Fed Ex fee, the “businees pck. is @ your door the next a.m…It is all pitch, no info. 2 c.d.’s talking about living your dreams, etc….Then your coach calls and you find out it’s “Herbalife” More money, $400, gets you your business starter pack. Your own 1 mo. supply of product…because they want their people healthy….Give me a break. She said the wrong thing to me and I asked her if it was a pyramid, she whispered yes. It had all the signs. But she got my $10, and was still trying to get $39 more, then $400. She never really talked about vitamins. In my favor, she wasn’t very good…a good one could probably sell it. If someone really needs money, they may jump on a pyramid if the upline is convincing enough. They are working under the BBB that Herbalife is a member of…..they are independent.

To all, there’s a variation of a work at home scam that I’ve not come across before. Needless to say, I got burned and I am extremely embarassed. If you come across ads on Craigslist that advertise for Customer Service Rep’s, be very very careful when replying to them. If you do reply to one of these ads and they respond, watch out for a company called James Bespoke Computers. They are the group that burned me. I have been unemployed and my better sense was deceived by their promise of work. They send out counterfeit money orders and want you to purchase their equipment. You get the picture. Never, ever agree to cashing money orders from ANY source that wants you to send the money somewhere else. I reported them to http://www.ic3.gov but I don’t expect much from doing that. These people are slick so don’t be taken in.

But it’s because of this feeling of embarrassment that scam artists can continue to thrive. A lot of folks aren’t reporting what’s happening so the information isn’t out there. So thank you for doing your part and spreading the word. You’ve probably just helped a lot of folks avoid these folks for the time being.

I am a retired male who has been on this earth for 79 years.I would like to know what are my chances of making some extra money by doing surveys. I was wondering how my age would limit the amount of surveys they would offer me.

Hmm well i fix computers and had an ad on craigslist. Someone wrote me and asked for quotes for fixing many computers (notebooks). After i went thru the erffort of that, the second letter said it needed to be shipped to me and listed a contact number of “206 202 2980″. A brief search online showed this number showing up all over for spamming and calling people’s phones. Ahh well, its a scam.

The person writing me was listed as:

    April,

    Thanks for sharing. I’m glad you’re able to read between the lines. Because too often the con artists are very good at including details of real jobs and companies in their ad and follow up emails. But as you pointed out once you read stuff about receiving and forwarding packages or cashing/depositing checks into your own bank account, they’ve revealed themselves. So it’s important to read between the lines as you’ve done. Thanks for sharing.

@Eddy Salomon:
I have thoroughly enjoyed the e-conversation between you and Lori. I happened upon your site and/or commentary via a google search. The reason for my search was to find some work at home stuff to supplement my income. Let me explain: I am a grandmother of 2. My grandson is 10 and my granddaughter is 6. Not only have I raised them from birth, I home school them, as well. For those of you who have taken on the task of homeschooling, not only is it time consuming (lesson plans, etc.) it is costly. To make a long story short, you guys have saved me tons of money! But I must say that I am a firm believer in what sounds too good to be true, usually is too good to be true. So, just as I take the time to research good curriculum and/or supplementals, I probably would have done the same in this regard, as well. This is an excellent forum and I have signed up to receive information from you. I am very interested in the medical transcribing. Would like to hear more….Lori.

I have been doing research on Wealthy Affiliate. I have heard good things about them. I was getting ready to join and thought that I would check out one more place to do research. I checked the BBB (better business bureau) and it pooped up with a letter grade F. I was wondering if that was because it is considered a “work at home job”?

    Eddy Salomon - November 30, 2009 Reply

    Hi Shira,

    I read the BBB report on WA as well. But you might want to take what they say with a grain of a salt. Read the following article:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/bbb and the comments. The BBB is a great resource but it’s not the “bible”. At the end of the day you have to use your judgment to determine whether any company is right for you. I personally don’t like depending on one source. I tend to do my research using various websites to get a balanced view of any given company. But I totally understand if the BBB is the only resource you depend on. I can only speak from experience regarding WA. Based on that, I found WA to be a very informative and education resource for my affiliate marketing career. It’s not perfect but no company is. I’ve highlighted its weaknesses in my review: http://www.workathomenoscams.com/wareview but regardless of whatever rating BBB has given it, I know for a fact it’s not a scam. It provides you with the proper information and tools to succeed. But you have to do the grunt work to become successful with it. Too often, people go into WA with an employee mentality. It’s not a work at home job. It’s a learning center that teaches you how to build a successful internet marketing business. Some people will succeed at building a business and others won’t. Unfortunately when some people do fail, they look to blame someone else instead of looking in the mirror. Just my two cents.

A good tipoff to a scam is is bad English, spelling and punctuation.

    Eddy Salomon - November 23, 2009 Reply

    Agreed. But take that with a grain of salt because yours truly is notoriously awful with my grammar, spelling and punctuation. I’ve probably already made several mistakes. lol Just look at scams from a wide perspective and a lot of things will call out to you. A lot of it is common sense. Sometimes when I evaluate a scam, I picture the situation in an offline situation. For instance if a stranger walked up to me out of no where and offered to give me a job without asking me for experience and willing to pay me a ridiculous amount of money to do something that usually doesn’t pay that well, I would just ignore them. The same common sense needs to be applied online.

veturie tertulien - November 16, 2009 Reply

I nthink that it’s dumb to try to keep the company as this huge secret when everyone knows that they could easily just get people to go to their site by paying to advertise on google, billboards, radio, tv, internet or any other current method. They claim to have people making a 6 firgure income and beyond. If you can afford to pay them that much then why don’t you do your own marketing? They told me that they would give me the tools to help market them and blah blah blah. All the free website which I actually pay for with my prefered membership do little to not to attract customers. It turns out that I would actually have to shell out money out of my own pockets just to help them gain customers. I would get paid later but it still feels like it’s wrong. What do you think?

veturie tertulien - November 16, 2009 Reply

Ok so I’ve signed up with this company to help them market their company. I was a little on the fence of signing up to begin with. I was invited to an online sort of meeting to get a feel of what the company is, what they sell, what I would do, and etc. I wasn’t being pressured and it didn’t sound like they were making a pitch. It sounded like a good company. I decided to give them a shot. Now my job with them is to basically do 2 things….refer customers to them and build my own “team”. I started the training and then started to get a little iffy about whether or not I made the right choice. They ask me to market their website but I am not allowed to mention the name of the company or advertise it. Also, as one of their agreements I have to become a preffered customer with the company before I can even start. I have to shop with them every month and if I don’t then I do not get paid. Their comission and bonuses seems reasonable but for starters you would only make $50-200 a month unless you managed to get a heap load of referals and built and amazing team on about 5-10 people overnight. I understand how they make money. The customers they have are normally long term because most eventually become employees. It’s a whole lot of networking. Someone gets you to sign up, then you get someone else, and so forth. While I don’t mind doing this I still feel like this might be a huge scam. The company is legit (I guess) and so is the pay but it’s still doesn’t sit right me.

    You should follow your instincts. They tend to be correct in these situations. But you can be certain by just following the steps in the scam video listed above.

Data Entry position I applied for and had to pay $18.00 for training packet and was told I could start right away. I sent $18.00 via paypal. Basically the individual posts a job position for data entry on as many job sites as possible and then when someone says they are interested they charge you $15.00-$20.00 to send the packet which is sent in a zip file and the file contains how you too can scam someone into $15.00-$20.00 whatever you think your time is worth and the individual uses paypal to make you think it is legit expressing how everything is safe and legitimate. I hope this helps people to not fall for the same mistake I did and my $18.00 saves someone else especially now when people are hurting so badly with this economy and the jobs are limited. I believe in doing good to others brings good to you.

Hello Eddy!

I would like to share my experience upon the site Heaven – it is ok but try to earn money at hellishdollars.com!

International members are welcome and there are lots of ways to pay you such as money gram- paypal – check.. It’s a paid to click earnings until you reach $2000 which is the minimum payout.

I start clicking everyday to the e-mail address they sent me 120 secs for 5 cents. I did it for
3 months! Finally at my $1993 I started to get excited thinking of that nice ‘virtual’ money I’m making and how others haven’t seen such an easy way.

When I got to my final click and waiting anxiously to cash out, no Redemtion button appeared!! I wrote several emails to the “Fake FAQ” which was never answered. Hey I reached the minimum payout where is the button?? I never get paid. I’ll tell everyone now STAY AWAY FROM HELLISHDOLLARS.COM. It’s a scam site. I get so frustrated. Check out for scam sites first before you go through bluntly.

I thank You Eddy for giving me the opportunity to express myself and in helping others through your website for legitimate non scam jobs. Thank You.

    Ed,

    I’m glad you actually went ahead and followed the advice of the scam video listed above instead of waiting for me because that’s basically what the whole purpose of this page is for. That’s how I do my research. So good job on making use of the information. At the end of the day even without doing the research you can just tell this isn’t real because of a number of reasons. 1. The email was unsolicited aka spam. They know nothing about you but yet you’re qualified for this position earning $75 per hour. Give me a break. If that was the case why wouldn’t everyone be doing this. This is where common sense just kicks in. If it sounds too good to be true it usually is.

    2. It’s not that easy making money with eBay. There is tons of competition. So already being aware of this, that’s another reason I knew this was bull.

    So a lot of the times research isn’t even neccessary, it’s just a matter of common sense. But I know that goes out the window when you’ve been at this for a long time and desperate to make money at home. However that’s why that scam video is on this page. So I’m glad you used it.

    The FTC can only do so much. Most of this really falls on us and using our own judgement and always doing the research. We’re all adults and smart enough to figure out most scams especially when we all have the tools at our disposal like google, bbb and sites like this. You’re proof of this.

Ed Cohen - October 22, 2009 Reply

Eddy,
I received an email from Immediate_placement@mus001night.com. When I clicked on the graphic I went to this site: http://homejobplacement.org/index. A Jennifer Johnson spouts off on being an Auction Listing Agent using EBay. Supposedly you can make up to $75 per hour doing the following:

1) Log on to your Personal Account.
2) Choose the product you want automatically listed.
3) Click the “List This Product On eBay Now!” button. Your listing will AUTOMATICALLY be listed on eBay.
4) Fill out a few short online forms (simple and fast) to process your customer’s product purchase and select “SEND.”
5) Repeat.

Ok, have you heard of this one? Is this for real or is it a fraud? Thanks

I was searching the internet today and came across a website for Mandura Drinks, a MLM company. I know some are scams and others can be a real opportunity. Is this a good one?

    Hi Aracelly,

    Since you’re bilingual you may want to consider a job as an interpreter or tutor. Visit the work at home companies page I have for jobs like that:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/companies My international page may help you as well even if you’re in the U.S. since they have jobs for people in the states and abroad:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/international

    In terms of the company you mentioned, just try following the steps in my scam video at the top of the page. That’s how I research companies. In general I’m not a big fan of MLMs because
    you’re usually pushing products on people that they don’t want or need. But that’s just my opinion. Following the steps in my scam video should really help you.

    Good luck.

I think you should investigate keyforcash.com. Here’s why. They said it wasn’t a scam, but now I’m not so sure. Either they are or their site is having problems. I logged in to their site and signed up for a data entry program, which thankfully is free. But when I tried to log in after receiving the confirmation email, it said my email address wasn’t on file, or there was an error. I hope the latter. Should i be wary of this or is it just a technical problem?

And what about PeopleString.com? I’ve heard that that is not a scam. Please check that out too and report on it and let me know.

Here’s one for ya..

I am not here seeking a “work at home” job, as I think there is some catch to all of them- generally starting with personal expenditure. (I grew up around women who sold Avon and Mary Kay, so I heard all about the whole “network marketing” scene for years.) However, I am here to post a scam alert. I have already posted one on http://www.ripoffreport.com; and searched for other scam alert sites so that I can share this with the public. “Money’s tight and times are hard,” so the countless unemployed or under-paid people who have already been screwed by the system and/or greedygut employers do not need to be exploited twice.

Beware of Craigslist! Since you don’t have to pay to post, there are many of these scamsters posting “jobs” there. Here are two shining examples:

1) There was an “administrative assistant” position posted for $15 per hour. It did NOT say “work at home.” If it did, I would have avoided it like the plague. I sent my resume (as instructed) to the following e-mail address: jolarinoinc@yahoo.com

The next day I received an e-mail (from this address) from an entity calling him/herself “Barry Smith.” Still, it did NOT indicate “working at home.” It instructed me to establish a Yahoo account so that I could have an online “interview” with “Mrs. Monica Williams.” This extensive use of Yahoo was all the “red flag” I needed; because legitimate businesses will (at the very least) conduct a phone interview then schedule a real interview. Furthermore, they will almost always have their own company website. At this point, I became quite angry and decided I would go through with this flakey little “interview” so that I could gather more information from these cretins and report them. I established a Yahoo account, and sent a message to this “Monica Williams” person through Yahoo’s chat. He/she was already online, how ’bout that! He/she then informed me that this was “work at home,” and that I would need to go establish a bank account with Bank of America. After setting up this account, they would wire money to the account for me to purchase accounting software. Once this was done, they would then have me process payments for the “company” and my wages would be deposited in the Bank of America account as well. Can you say “money laundering?!”

Forget the FBI. I was always under the impression that part of their computer/internet crimes department investigated things like this. When I called them, the call was answered by an apathetic and exasperated little guy who responded to me as if I were reporting a Bigfoot sighting. He quickly dismissed me with a “yeah, whatever” attitude.

Now, for Craigslist’s second “gotcha:”

I found a post for an administrative assistant position, and contacted the poster(s) via e-mail as instructed. I later received a response with “the rest of the story.” This entity was working in the “adult entertainment industry.” In other words, they make pornography! Along with the normal administrative/office duties, the “dress code” and “industry description” were included in the response. The “dress code” would require “short skirts/dresses” and “high heeled shoes.” I was flabbergasted and disgusted; as I am one of the few people left in America who understand that modesty, chastity and decency are virtues.

Hi Ashley,

Would you keep us posted on your outcome of your experience with American Publications. Athough, most envelope stuffing company’s are scams, this one may be legitimate. I would like to know, but please remember….you must follow their instructions and do everything they instruct you to do.

Thanks,

Barb

Hi Eddy
WILL I BEEN SCAM FROM THE SAME PEOPLE ITS SO HARD TO FIND A REAL WORK FROM HOME COMPANY THAT I CAN TRUST SO THEY GOT ME FOR $69.00 IS THERE ANYWAY I CAN GET THEM MESS UP. THE WEBSITE IS http://WWW.FROMHOMEDATAENTRY.COM PLEASE NOBODY DONT WORK FOR THIS PEOPLE.

    Eddy Salomon - August 20, 2009 Reply

    Hi Varonica,

    You can report this website to the FTC.gov, BBB.org and many other consumer protection websites like the ones we mentioned in the following article:
    http://www.workathomenoscams.com/2008/01/21/top-5-scam-fighting-sites/

    The best way to get back at these people is to spread the word to as many people as possible. If you paid for this with a credit card, I would contact your credit
    card company and ask them to reverse the charges and let them know you feel you’ve been scammed by this organization.

    Hope this helps.

I just wanted to say thanks so much for all the great info you have on your site. I have been coming to it for a few weeks now and have found some great opportunites that I had no idea existed. I have watched your videos and have learned alot of things about work at home scam and opportunites (btw you have a great speaking voice lol) Keep up the great work!!!!

    Eddy Salomon - August 19, 2009 Reply

    Hey Carol,

    No thank you for just appreciating my work and taking the time out to say that. Trust me it really feels good to hear these type of comments. Too often I get emails from folks asking for advice and I direct them to certain information to help them and I never get so much as a thank you. So it’s great to see some folks still have “home training”. lol

    By the way I don’t know about having a great voice, but I’ll try to make myself believe that as I create videos. lol Take care and thanks again.

I recieved a letter in the mail today with a check for 3800 dollars. I have been looking for work at home oportunities and was told when i called the number that they got my info from the internet, and was accepted to be a mystery shopper. They wanted me me to deposit the check into my checking account and mack a money gram transfer for 1300 dollars and a wesrern union tranefer for 1400 dollars. They told me that I would get to keep 980 dollars. When I called to talk to the person it was a recording and I left a message. It took about 10 minuts for a man to call me back so durring that time I had googled the name of the company which is Work Group Evaluation Services. the second I got the results pulled up the man was calling me on the phone. I took down the instructions that he wanted me to follow and in doing that he changed the name of the person the money was supose to be wired to. so as I was talking to him I was trying to read what I had found on google which this company is a scam! They sent what looks like a real check written from a real bank. I googled the name of the bank got, the number, and called them the lady at the bank confirmed that it was not a good check. I am so glad I second guessed myself because I almost deposited the check and sent the money gram! I would have been out of almost 3000 dollars. Please people check out things before you do them. If you know of any mystery shopping positions that are not frauds please let me know.

    Hey Tammy,

    Good job on your detective work! That’s why we have that scam research video right at the top of the page because it can basically help you sniff out most scams in seconds. You were smart to do all the research you did. The check cashing or wire transfer scam is a common one that comes in many flavors. But once you hear something about cashing a check or wiring money then you already know it’s the same B.S. As you may have read above, there have been tons of people reporting the same type of scam above and in our fake check scam article. Thanks for sharing the information. Hopefully more people will follow your lead.

    In terms of finding legitimate mystery shopping companies just visit our companies page:

    Good luck.

Hello. I just signed up for an envelope stuffing work from home job. I was wondering if anyone had had any dealing with the company that I went through and if they could share any information. The website is http://www.ameripubs.com. I found it in a Babytalk magizine that I recieved in the mail. I went to their website and everything looked lagit, but I was just wondering about them because I really want to work from home so that I can spend more time with my boys, but can’t afford the $200 and $300 that most companies ask for. This one only asked for $32 and then an extra $3 for express mail. If anyone could share any information with me about this if they have it, I would greatly appreciate it. Please e-mail me at the the posted e-mail address.
Thanks again,
Ashley

@Diane:

Partnerwithpaul is a definite scam. I researched the first site he gives you and they are affiliated with herbalife (itself not a scam at all, but a decent company). Their method is that they charge you for the starter package – $40, then when you sign up two more people and pay another $200 you are “in” and get to go to another site, which I presume scams you some more.
