Another day and another scam. I recently received an emailed job offer allegedly from the "Derby House Fabrics" company. I'll spare you the suspense. It's a scam. Let me start off by saying that there may actually be a legitimate company named "Derby House Fabrics".
Scam artists are like a viruses they spread and adapt quickly. Because they know most work at home seekers are naturally skeptical (as they should be), a con-artist tends to use real legitimate company names in their emails. The hope is that it will disarm you from thinking it's a scam when you do your research. But I'm going to show you my 3 strikes method on how to determine when these emailed job offers are a scam. But first we need to do some self reflection about this so-called opportunity that has appeared out of thin air.
Here are some questions you need to ask yourself.
