So if you're a loyal subscriber that's read my work at home scam section from top to bottom, one of the things I've warned against is that some scam artist will use the name and contact information of legitimate companies to lure you into a sense of security. This tends to happen in emailed work at home job offers. Most of the times, the scammers will only reference smaller, lesser known companies. But recently that's changed. I don't know if scammers have had a bowl of Wheaties or grown a bigger pair, but now they're using larger company's identity to push their work at home scams.
The Wisconsin Better Business Bureau (BBB) recently issued an alert regarding a current work-at-home scam using a well-known charity, Habitat for Humanity. In case you don't know, Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian ministry founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a decent, safe and affordable place to live. They build with people in need regardless of race or religion. This is a great company that does great work. Leave it to a scammer to corrupt such a noble cause.
