Hi guys, I just wanted to remind you that there are many scammers out there looking for people who are returning to work, seeking quick income, or in need of urgent cash. Many of the scams look like legit companies and recruiters sending and posting very alluring offers with pay rates like $30+ an hour, to do simple tasks like picking up or collecting packages, inspecting them, and reshipping them.

Many of these scammers claim that they are working for big name company like Amazon, Amex, Target, Walmart, etc., and/or they use legit work from home company names to lure unsuspecting victims in. Often times they make the job sound like it is for a limited time to heighten you need to act on impulse. Then will that you provide personal information (name, address, phone, email, sometimes ss#, and IDs) then demand act quickly because they are waiting for your response to "get in." They also will ask you to click a link, or connect on Zoom, WhatsApp, Telegram, etc. with a code to a specific name. They are clever and their trick really work.

So, my big tip is something all of us have been told or heard before, many times. "If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is." So, do your research. You can use Google and do a reverse search. For example, you can search, "collecting packages and reshipping them scams." Good sites like Snoops and others will immediately spit out a bunch of information. You can also search the name of the sender of the job posting and put it with the job offer, and see what comes up. For example, "Samuel Bush recruiter at ASB company, and shipping packages." Or, search things like, UPS, USPS, Amazon job scams. So don't allow your need for cash to blindside you to the real possibilities of the type of scams that exist online. Think and do your research before you accept that job.

Now, this is not fool proof steps, so do your research on how to avoid being scammed when searching for a job. Again, please think and do your research before accepting that awesome offer. #jobsearch #scams #workfromhome #interview #application

Well. even if wheelchair-bound, if you can use your hands and eyes, you can do work on the computer.

A wheelchair is like an office chair, a seat. You may need some accommodation, but that's easily fixed if the employer is willing. And the key issue is if the employer is willing.

If you are a good and willing worker, with good attitude and aptitude, then make a compelling case that they should give you a chance and hire you--I would.
