hi guys^^ how are you all? wish that fine^^ well i will tell you about something that happened to me two years ago i guess. i was looking for a job and i saw one saying that those that had a good handwriting could work for their company filling postals. so i sent them a letter with my handwriting and got an answer.what happened is that it went to the post office inside of a package and i had to pay when i arrived there. i thought about not paying bcs was afraid it was a scam but is like we dont have courage to just say sorry i wont pay in front of the person that already went to take the package to give to you. i saw that the package seemed too little to have the postals inside but paid. then i arrived home and saw only a cd. i was like what is this? then put inside of the computer and saw a message teaching me a way to fool other people. like they did to me you know? they sent a cd for me to do the same they were doing. its like crazy! for sure i didnt do any of that and didnt care for that stupid cd and got angry sure. not only bcs lost a bit of money but also bcs a lot of people is taking advantage of others to earn money. also there are other jobs to double envelopes. we all know that envelopes are doubled so it can go to post offices and all that. the truth is that some companies pay people to do that work. so what happens is that right now there are a lot of liars that are saying that is for you to work for that company and to send your name and address by a text message to them and they will send you all the informations. i sent it and they sent me a letter but then i didnt care for it. i was afraid to be scammed again. what do you think of these people? arent they so mean? people want to work bcs writing a lot of postals all day would cost and your hands would hurt and the same with doubling the envelopes and people just take advantage and waste the time of those that really want a job.

That is an out right scam. They want you to make copies of the stuff they send you and then have you do the same thing. The downside is that you have to pay for all the postage yourself. They will not pay for that. And there is the fateful day when you are looking for payment, providing you went through with it, you do not get paid. Scam, Scam, and more Scam.

That's very sad to hear. Although I haven't experienced a scam like that before I have heard a lot of them though. I actually live in a country were pyramiding scam is so dominant that a company without proper credentials is really hard to trust and invest in. Reading your story it seems that the scammer was a bit hesitant he even sent you a CD just to get back at what he did to you. That part was a bit funny though. I think you should check out first the company if it's worth your time but if you still have doubt's about it hen just don't do it.

Sadly there are still many more scams like this and on a bigger spectrum. Many scammers are prying on the needy and causing them to get false hope and loose money instead of making any. So unfortunately all opportunities have to be looked at very carefully and researched before we join any. Like the saying if it sounds too good to be true it may very well be. Be careful and still praying something comes your way soon.
