Work at home offers

May 30, 2006 12:47am CST
I have received offers for work at home that is identified as bookkeeper. Receiving money orders and depositing them, after they clear wireing the money to the said company or individual of a said company. I have tried to verify the source, but I cannot. Any suggestions? sypvara@yahoo.com

This sounds like a scam. Why would they need to hire someone to do this? Here on myLot, type in "work at home" and you will get some good information.

This is a scam. The money orders they give you are fake. Once your bank figures this out, they will take the money out of your account, and/or contact the authorities. I have been looking for a legit bookkeeper job that allows me to work at home, and have received this scam many times. It's very frustrating because they post the jobs to look like a legitimate opportunity, but once you get all the details, you realize you've wasted your time, again!

I am currently working on setting up fully my work from home job with a company that I love. I am hoping to be able to fully replace my income from my full time job by the end of this year so that I can stay at home and work this full time. This is something that I love, a product that a lot of people need, and the opportunity to help people improve their health as well as help their families. Check it out at http://www.freedomathometeam.com/carabear This is a great company that even offers benefits! Which is awesome since the benefits at my full time job suck badly, this helps fill in the gaps that my other job seriously lacks. The time you put in depend on how much you want to push it, and how far you want to personally go which is very flexible and great for almost everyone. :-)

It appears to be a scam. I found a website for you that gives the details on this type of scam: http://www.privacyrights.org/fs/fs25a-JobSeekerPriv2.htm You should also search up the company's name on www.ripoffreport.com and www.bbb.com.

From what you have described, the thing seems to be a "scam". You will at best end up working hard and not receive any payments for it. And it can be worse. You might get caught up in some legal trouble or some. Please dont fall for such "scams", at least till you can verify the "source"!!

Dont go anywhere near any of them. They are all scams. There is no such thing as money for free. Above someone mentioned Best Cash Rewards, they are free but you will have to make some effort to join up and get three other people to do the same. It is good though. Otherwise, you have to invest time and/money to make money. I am with Success University and have actually made some real money there. If you are interested, ask me to be your friend and then send me a mail to remind me and I will give you the link. That is the only money (apart from MyLot) I have made on-line but it is well worth having.

This is the classic "Money mule" scam. Indeed, you will receive money orders, you will be able to cash them in and send them to the location indicated by the scammer. The problem is that the money order won't clear, so in a few weeks the bank will be calling the Police and you will be involved in a Police investigation. I don't think someone can be prosecuted for placing some money elsewhere; personally I was involved in this scam as a money mule for Israeli Brokerage Services Inc. I knew it was a scam but I played their game and when they sent 500$ I just took'em out of the bank and went to spend them on small stuff. When the Police came I told them I knew nothing about the scam, but I wanted to scam that company myself at my own risk (of course I knew there was no company, just a scammer behind everything). But I wouldn't advise you to do the same... I live in Romania :D

That's probably a scam..when looking for work at home jobs, never go for those employers that make you pay before getting hired..
