I just want to vent!! I applied for a work at home position with ????? completed all the many steps over a four week period of time. The last interview via phone was yesterday and the person who conducted the interview told me I did really well. I was soooo very excited because I just knew I'd get a congratulations email welcoming me to the company. Instead what I got was this. What a colossal waste of my time an energy.
No explanation why after leading me to believe I would be moving to the next step. Grrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!

Perfect Example Of Another Work From Home Email Scam...

I have been posting on here different online work from home online scams and schemes that I have come across and here is another typical online work from home email scam I received last night and a copy of the exact email is in the photo I have attached.
***** It states a person can make $7,381.80 a day working from anywhere in the world as long as you have an internet connection. There is no application and everyone is approved for this to start working from anywhere in the world today and if that was so true and valid a person would earn working 5 days a week a total of $36,909.00 a week...!
I decided to click on the link that was provided just to see what it was really was all about. The next page that comes up is another elaborate professionally designed website showing a major news network, (Fake of course) and one of the news anchors starts blabbing his mouth about this new free system that will generate endless amounts of income guaranteed for the rest of your life. Now I said to myself if this news anchor guy, (Who had a face...only a Mother could love), knew this new online system that will earn him endless amounts of income every single week than why is he still working at the news station...?
It said in the beginning this is FREE but the next internet page comes up and then you watch a short video with people in it that could not act themselves out of a wet paper bag and it is still informing you this is FREE and then the final page comes up and they are looking for your debit or credit card for a payment of $47.00 to get access to this once in a lifetime system.
The moment I seen that I knew immediately this was another online scam and scheme as in all reality there really is no system or job they were offering and all they were seeking is a $47.00 payment from you.
I have a very good friend of mine who has been working in marketing and advertisement for many years and he informed me any and all of these companies out there work on percentages meaning as an example if a million people seen that ad and only 3 to 4 percent of them purchased it the company makes money and the victim of being taken has no legal recourse at all and left holding the bag.
Just putting it out there no matter what type of email you receive that states you are going to earn from a work from home system and generate endless amounts of income from it do not believe it for one second as always ask yourself if this was go true then why isn't everyone doing this for a living.less
Wow. Thanks for the head ups. Scammers are getting more and more creative on how to get people. The $7,381.80 a day is a dead give away though.

Samantha, Yes you are totally correct in stating they are becoming more and more creative with trying to scam people. I have done some really serious research on this topic of online scams and schemes and the results where actually alarming as many studies and polls have indicated that 7 out of 10 people who are on the internet have been the victims of scams and have suffered a significant amount of financial loss due to it and the really bad part it they do not have any legal recourse to get their hard earned money back.
One example I read there was this Gentleman out in California that fell for some online scam with opening a new brokerage and online trading account. The company was a well known brand and almost everyone in America knows their name.
He decided to go online to open a new brokerage and trading account which takes a significant amount of time due to the length of the application and nearing the end of the application the system had asked him how he wanted to fund his new account as when it is opened and approved he could start trading immediately. He elected to transfer funds from one of his external bank accounts where he had a large amount of money in it and that is where he made one of the biggest mistakes of his entire life.
He had to input the name of his bank, the routing and account numbers to where is wanted the funds transferred from and the system told him at the end they were going to send 2 trial deposits ranging from
0.99 within the next 2 to 3 business days and when those 2 trial deposits appear in his external checking account he had to sign back on to his online brokerage and trading account with the new user id and password he had signed up with and logon and verify to the 2 trial deposits that where sent to his external checking account in order to verify his was a actual owner of that external checking account.
In a few days he did actually receive the 2 trial deposits from this company and went back online to verify the 2 trial deposits and after verifying the 2 of them his account now was open and ready for online trading for stocks, bonds, mutual funds, options, futures and any other types of trading investment instruments, however in order to do any trading or investing he had to fund his account as myself being a online trader and investor for many years, there is a saying,
No pay...no play. So he decided to transfer $25,000 (Twenty Five Thousand U.S. Dollars) from his external checking account which was fully verified it was his and went in and started the transfer of the funds so he could begin trading and the system informed him it would take 24 to 48 hours for the funds transfer to fully complete and when it actually had completed and the funds were actually clear and available in his new trading account he would receive a email reflecting that and then he could being using his new account.
He waited for that email to arrive however it never did so he decided to go online to see his own checking account balances and for sure there was a debit of $25,000 from it from the company who HE THOUGHT was the company in whom he opened the new brokerage and trading account online, however it really was not as the website that he went to looked exactly like the actual website but in reality it was something called,
A phantom and ghost mirrored website.
He immediately got on the phone and when he actually reached someone and they barely could speak English and had the intelligence of a head of lettuce and he explained the entire episode to them and they looked on their system and there was no records of any external transfers from any accounts and his balance in his trading account was,
$0.00. He escalated the call to someone in upper management and he was told exactly the same thing. He tore the guy on the phone a new rectum as he wanted to know where his $25,000 was and they informed him there was nothing they could do for him and have a good day.
He literally was angry and livid beyond the definition of the words and he had contacted every level of law enforcement that he could and they did investigate the matter for him but in the end result that $25,000 was transferred overseas to a offshore banking account and he had no legal recourse at all to get his $25,000 back.
Every since I had read and heard that as I used to pay all my bills online I stopped paying all my bills online and still to this day I write checks the old fashioned way and it does take a lot of time plus the postage, however it is worth it to me as I feel much more safer and secure by doing that way. At least now I know that my banking account information is no longer online for the Cyber Criminals to possible attack and get a hold of and drain me completely dry.
As a footnote most of us here remember going back the famous
Hurricane Katrina which left thousands and thousands of people helpless and homeless and the first organization on the scene was the famous
Red Cross. They had a website up for people from all over the Country and the world to donate money to help these victims of this natural disaster. All people thought that when they went to the
Red Cross website it was the real and legitimate thing even myself as I did as a matter of fact donate money to help out but it really was not the actual
Red Cross website and it was a
Phantom and ghost mirrored website and over $40 million dollars was donated and not one person who was the victim of
Hurricane Katrina received $1 dollar as all the money that was donated online was a huge scam and all the money was transferred to overseas offshore banking accounts. Every since then and I am from a cheap or frugal person that whenever I decide to donate any money, I write a check, seal the envelope, lick a stamp, put it on and drop it in a U.S; postal mailbox.
Folks, this message is not only for Samantha but it is for everyone on here and please exercise extreme caution before you decide to put any of your financial information online as the internet is getting more scary and frightening every single day...!
Best of luck to all...!less

Another Work From Home Online Scam And Scheme...

Folks, I wanted to put out there and alert and warn you all there is another work from home company named
Appen. They have an elaborate website and state they have offices all over the world and they have projects for people who want to work from home and the average hourly pay is $9.00 an hour and the most a person can work is 19 hours a week if qualified and accepted. If you were to work the 19 hours a week then you would earn $171,00 a week and $684.00 a month which is not great but any extra money always helps for sure.
The projects that they have as I read all of the details of what actually has do be performed is so simple a
Baboon could perform it and I am not kidding one bit.
When you go on their website the application process is long, very detailed and they want to know everything down to your underwear size. After applying I did not hear anything for about 2 weeks and then I got an email from them that I was fully qualified and I was accepted to work for them on a specific project and within 5 days I would receive a follow up email detailing the project and to create an account with
Payoneer in order to be paid for my work. NO, they do not pay using
PayPal or any electronic banking methods, so if you are looking to get paid that way just forget it.
5 days came and 5 days went and another 2 weeks went by and then I got another email from them stating the starting project date is the first of the next month and the next email that you will receive is to provide you all the further details to begin work on the first day of the next month.
To sum it up I never received anymore emails that they had stated they were going to send or anything else from them and in my professional opinion this
Appen company is just another was of time and energy as they post work from home positions that are available however in all reality they do not exist at all.
Oh, by the way my friend the
Baboon who used to work there quit the other day and ran off into the woods, as he never got paid for any work he did for them.
Best of luck to all the
Work From Home individuals out there as in my experience 9 out of 10 of these
Work From Home jobs out there are nothing more but elaborate online scams and schemes...!

There is a post on the forum where a Jobcaser pointed out that a position they applied for turned out to be a scam run by a company called
I Dial U.
There was a list of reasons given as to why this was believed to be a scam, and on the surface, they seemed valid.
I pointed out that all of the reasons listed were actually not indicative of a scam.
Additionally, I did some due diligence and actually contacted the VP of call center operations listed on the email the Jobcaser shared.
I Dial U is a real business operated as a virtual call center. They have been in business for 15 years.
Sharon, the VP, explained their process for hiring work from home employees.
Applicants apply on the idialu.com website. They receive a number to call and they answer three questions about why they feel they would excel at telesales. This is a recorded screening, you are replying to prompts, not actually talking to a recruiter.
Once you submit your answers, they will be reviewed and if it is determined you are a good fit, you receive a contractors agreement to fill out and return.
Once that is done, you are scheduled for training. You will then work with a team lead who will be there to support you thtoughout your tenure.
It is a sales position and you get paid either commission or hourly, whichever is greater. So you will get a paycheck either way. They obviously want you selling though.
Sharon was gracious enough to speak with me and answer my questions. I have no doubt after speaking with her that this is a legitimate work from home opportunity. You would be an independent contractor, so they don't pay benefits.
Sharon said she would gladly answer any questions we Jobcasers have.
I hope that helps clarify any confusion over I Dial U.less

This is a great business for teens and adults who wish to start a small home base business.
Once you decide on what you want to refer you need to market your referral service. I recommend getting a toll free number established first, so you can show your clients you are ready for business. I recommend charging anywhere from $10.00 to $20.00 per month. You can bill in three, six or twelve-month increments. If you had 50 companies sign up at $10.00 per month that is an extra $500.00 a month! Make business cards with your referral service name and a catchy flyer. Visit the business owners personally, show them that it is cheaper than advertising in the phone book! Have them sign a contract, pay you up front and get all the information you need. If it is a daycare center, get the prices and address. Everything you might need to give a solid referral! Once you have clients advertise the service. Put an ad in on your social media websites. Pass out flyers through email etc., Then get ready to work! Decide on the hours of operation. Watch out because your clients will call you and check to be sure you are answering the phone and offering referrals!

So, you pretty much answer calls from people who need a certain service and refer them to your clients? This would be a concierge type service where you will provide referrals to a list of paying clients.
In theory it is a good idea, but I am afraid the internet is going to make this obsolete before it even takes off. Most people don't even want to talk on the phone now.
I wonder what the life expectancy on such a business would be. And how would this be different from people looking companies up online and reading reviews?
Might be good for the baby boomers but, again, that generation is on the down slope. Sadly.less

It's not defeatist, just a realistic concern.
When contemplating a business venture, especially one with upfront investment, you have to ask the questions, including the viability of the service long-term.
Is the service you suggested viable for long term? Possibly, but you have to consider that there are already plenty of sites that aggregate services and allow reviews and ratings. AngiesList and HomeAdvisor do just that. They have call centers set up and a web presence.
It would be very difficult for a small IBO to to start another service from the ground up. Impossible? Not at all, but is the investment worth the risk of failing when put up against already established referral sites.
The difference between the websites and your proposed solution is that you will be referring callers to businesses who pay you, so your service is biased toward your clients. As an independent business owner, it is your job to make money. You will do so by referring customers to any client who is paying you. Despite any negative reviews or poor business practices those clients might have/exhibit.
If you refer a client to a daycare that is dirty or has poor customer service simply because they pay you, your company as a referral service loses credibility.
It is why referral sites can't legitimately be run over the phone. potential customers need to see reviews and feedback from the community. Which is why they will go to sites like HomeAdvisor, Google Reviews, and Angie's List.
It is not defeatist to weigh all these factors when looking at a potential business opportunities. I am not saying your suggestion is a bad idea, but anyone considering it has to ask the tough questions and not be charmed by the idea of an extra 500.00 a month, etc...less

Hi. I'm looking for any type of legitimate work from home jobs. My youngest son whom is 18 months, has a medical condition that we are constantly making Dr appointments for or I'm constantly calling off work for to take to the Dr. Also, our current babysitter might be having hip replacement surgery which means she won't be babysitting much longer. We don't have any other babysitters and we don't trust daycare especially with his condition.

On February 9th, 2017 I was involved in a serious auto accident that resulted in 2 bones in my back being broken, and I am no longer physically able to perform the necessary duties required as a truck driver. Also the accident has left me in 24/7 Chronic pain and can not stand, walk, or sit in one position for long periods of time. Standing or walking, maybe 20 minutes max, and sitting no more than 2 hours at a time. Can not lift from floor, and no more than 35 lbs. from table height. This is why I am looking for an online job that I can do from home. Education, I have a GED, and I attended college for 1 quarter, but due to a pell grant failing to pay, I never received any credits for that time spent. The last place I drove a truck for was
Alliance Industrial located at 6912 Gardner Expressway, Quincy, Illinois. Company owned by Mr. Rob Albsmeyer, and his Phone Number is 217-257-3834. I was with him for 3 years. Before that I drove for Westside Transportation out of Cedar Rapids, Ia. and so on and so on, but my trucking career is over, and at 55 years of age with a lot of physical disabilities I have to find another way to make a living, and the only thing I think I might be able to do is something on a computer working from home. Please help if you can. Thank you so much.

Hi Mike, I'm incredibly sorry to hear about what you're going through. I have a few suggestions to make some money on the side if you might be interested. Like Laila, I would suggest freelance work/microtask websites like Fiverr.com. Perhaps starting a blog or a YouTube channel and sharing you story with people might help as well, especially if there are ads on your pages. Making a blog or starting a YouTube channel are also good ways to show that you are technologically literate and creative. It also shows that you can work consistently. You can also focus your blog on something you're good at, maybe a hobby or something, and writing/making videos about it consistently (ex, one a week for one year = 52 posts/videos) shows that you're an expert on it. I hope this helps. Good luck.less

The work-at-home scammers are always coming up with new schemes. Some of the opportunities listed below can be legitimate work-at-home jobs, but often they are not—so be very careful with any of these, and some you should always avoid.
-Direct Sales or multilevel marketing (MLM)
-Pyramid Schemes - Always avoid!
-Business start-up kits
-Anything involving cashing checks/wiring money - Always avoid!
-Home assembly/envelope stuffing - Always avoid!
-Becoming a product re-seller or wholesaler
-Stock trading systems - Always avoid!
-Directories of telecommuting jobs or businesses
-Taking online surveys
-Data entry/call centers (Some are legit but, the lure of these jobs is used to sell bogus start-up kits and other scams.)
Knowledge is the best defense when you are in search of home-based employment. So before you do, take some time to learn how to tell which opportunities are legitimate work-at-home jobs and which are work-at-home scams. The most common way that scammers find victims is to play on people's emotions. When you want something badly, your emotions can lead you to make illogical decisions in pursuit of it. Be especially wary of any opportunity that tries to play on your emotions by saying you
deserve something. Begin by doubting things that you see that appear
fishy, then do your research with a clear head. Even if an opportunity looks legit, do NOT EVER send money to any organization OR give them ANY of your information such as bank account, address, age, etc. First find out where the job is physically based out of and possibly trying to contact it via phone as well as check out their website. Look the company up on social media and do an internet search for reviews of it. It often helps to do a search with the name of the company and the word
review directly after it. Scroll to the bottom of their site or scan the top for
About us or
Contact Us. Most legitimate companies have links to real contact information and sometimes their physical address and phone number at the bottom. In a work at home scam, often the only contact information is an email form or email address. If there is an email address, what kind is it? If it is gmail, yahoo, hotmail or other free email accounts, be wary. Legitimate companies usually have their own domain. Though, having a domain is certainly no guarantee of legitimacy. Work-at-home jobs promoted through paid online ads are rarely legitimate. These links labeled
Sponsored Links or
Sponsored Results can be found in search engine results from Google, Yahoo, Ask.com, Bing and others when you search for WFH opportunities.

Check out this post on top scams Terri. If they want to mail you money before you have even worked, do NOT do it, it's a SCAM. A legitimate job would NEVER pay you money first, right? Just take a step back and look at the job offers and check them out thoroughly. I am sorry to tell you that, but it's best to get that thought of working for them out of your mind and move onto other real opportunities. I know it's tempting (I have been there myself), but you want to be safe rather than sorry! Check out that post and also how you can search for jobs here on Jobcase.
Use the 4 EASY steps below to find a job opportunity!
1.Click on “Jobs & Companies” at the top of the page
2.Enter a job into the search field that says “Position”
3.Click on the blue button to search for that position in your area
4.Once the list is up, click on “View Job" of any you are interested in and then apply.
