Letting you know of a scam and how I knew it was. While using a search engine I click the work from home link and went to monster market place there I found a link for mail stuffing with reciepes and a disc. You get paid $1 per envelope completed and returned. I paid the low start up cost then sent the seller an email alas it came back as spam so I sent one via the site wich also got returned. I requested the money back via paypal and it came back declined, I put a closing message in the paypal box which must have hit a nerve. Two hours later I got my money back. My advice. If not sure email the person asking for more info if they reply still tread wealily.

your advise has been know for over 10 years people that are new to the web or those who are very slow to catch on are always falling for the same scams that were around over 10 years ago the site names have changed but the wording hasnt even before the internet the same scams were sent by post and that has been happening for over 100 years it just goes to show the old addage is right: 'there is one born every minute'

yep it's just so disappointing that they get away with it time and time again. People are facing financial difficulties and these sites make it even worse

I thing someone should start a scammers site. Listing the ones they know the reasons they found out they were fake and allow every one to post on to it. Like a community notice board.

I am only new to this and know there would be other people who are just getting a feel for this as well. Just trying to help other newbies. Old vets can also put in their 2c I don't mind. All tips welcome
