There are no surveys, cold calling strangers, blogs, or click banks. You will actually need to work with your computer, answering emails at least 4 hours a day helping other people.

You will be processing applications online. All training is provided in our step by step easy to follow directions. This is a REAL home?based job that gives you the opportunity to make $100 a day. This is not a “get rich quick” system.

The average person can make $300?$500 per week. The amount you earn is up to you and how much time and effort you put forth. THIS IS SIMPLE DATA ENTRY. You are paid daily through your Secure Paypal account. If you do not have a Paypal account you can open one for FREE at

The training kit gives step by step directions on how to get started and how to improve your financial situation. Once you receive the training kit you can start work instantly. Truth be told… Training kits do not come cheap, in order for us to stay afloat and to guarantee some sort of revenue we do charge a one time fee for the training kit of $12 to be sent by Paypal to . It may seem a little fishy but you must understand that a mere 12 dollars is nothing compared to turn around rate that you will see when you start working for us… I hope you can understand this as to any applicants are a bit skeptical…

Thank you and I’ll keep in touch

My guess is that the job is selling the same kit that you will receive for $12. It is a pyramid scheme.

Read this email. Is it a SCAM?

, Hi

Thank you for your interest in this position.

We are seeking a self motivated individual with the desire to work with online advertising. You will need a computer with Internet access, a valid e-mail account, and basic typing skills. The position involves processing typed responses from advertisements placed online. These responses vary in length according to each client that you work with. You will not be required to type any sort of negative or inappropriate material. You can consistently process an average of 5 orders per day, and make approximately $150-$500 a week. Further inquiries about processing will be explained in specific detail in the training materials. All transactions will be processed through your e-mail account. There is no contract to sign with this position, and the amount you choose to process is entirely up to you. As with any position, you must be able to respond to advertisements in a timely manner. The benefit of this position is to work from home around your own schedule.

Basic Internet knowledge

This is just a small processing fee, protecting us from those who are not serious about doing this work. No business can cover administrative costs, wasted time or provide costly materials to everyone who inquires about this position. If this is not acceptable to you, or you cannot afford this cost, please disregard this e-mail. To ease any worry you may have, PayPal has a MONEY BACK GUARANTEE that if you pay for an item and do NOT receive it – they will refund your money.

Charles asks…

Am I being selfish? (weird situation)?

So my mom is a cleaning lady. She's dragged me to help her clean random businesses since I was eight years old. If I didn't go, she'd flip out and guilt trip me. I grew up never being able to do anything on the weekends, and on the rare occasion I did have time to do something, I had to work around her schedule. I never got paid, but of course she does do a lot of nice things for me.

Fast forward to now, I'm a 19 (twenty on Tuesday! =D) year old college student. I take 18 credit hours (4.0… so I work really hard) minimum every semester, I'm in three choirs, and I do theatre. Also, I work in a deli at least 15-20 hours a week (would work more, but I get crappy hours). To get there I have to take the bus to my car, and overall, I probably drive about an hour to get to work and an hour back when I'm in school. Soooo, I'm pretty busy. Now that it's Christmas break I'm at home, so I'm driving even further (about an hour and a half each way). Today I got up at six, drove to work, worked for eight hours, and on the way home she called me and started nagging that I needed to come help her clean. I said no, because I've been basically on the go for the past twelve hours. She said she had been busy all day too. (Not true, she doesn't clean that much, she just doesn't get done until really late because she stays up until 3 in the morning playing games on Facebook, sleeping in, waking up and getting online for a few hours) Then she said she thought I'd understand because she doesn't feel well (she never feels well) and basically started guilt tripping me.

Anyway, the reason she feels that I should help her is because she's partly paying my car payment; I have a $275 a month car payment and $65 phone bill. I give her pretty much all of every check I get, (I make about $400 a month) so it's not like I'm just expecting her to pay for my stuff. I couldn't find a job over the summer so she has this idea that I'm permanently indebted to her for paying my bill… although I worked from April 2005-May 2009 and she'd basically take my money to pay bills… and I had no car/phone payment then, and I know I didn't spend about $12,000 myself during those four years.

Am I being selfish for not going to help her? I do willingly help her sometimes. It's just I don't feel like I should have to now that I'm at a university, have my own job (which is not fun at all!), and kind of just want to relax when I actually do have free time.

I'm thinking of going and staying with my grandma over break. Good idea?

You are measuring the lost of your freedom against your peer, then have you ever take a minutes of thoughts to your mother on how is she going to measuring the lost of her freedom with who?. The world, the family or herself.
When you are on the same boat never count how many things you have been doing and sacrifice to keep the boat straight but rather how to work with the rest to let the boat float and navigate it to the target.
If you chose to run away with is problem and taking a shortest way out, that you think you are doing the right choice by all mean you can go ahead but you will never know how to handle crisis when time come your way.
I hope that you take this as your mission to steer the family out of the crisis as part of your character building and make a mark that you have mature to support the family in your early adulthood. You will appreciate what I have say when you have overcome it.

100% scam.

There is no job, no legit company called USA payroll and NO the FBI does NOT give out a “license” or “right to trade” by the “United State Community”, whatever that is.

There is only a scammer trying to steal your hard-earned money and maybe your freedom.

The next email was from one of the scammer's fake names and free email addresses and will demand YOU buy the software, check blanks and ink out of YOUR pocket. Then you print fake checks for the scammer, send them out on a stolen UPS/FedEx tracking number to his list of potential victims to cash and send the scammer their money via Western Union or moneygram.

Western Union and moneygram do not verify anything on the form the sender fills out, not the name, not the street address, not the country, not even the gender of the receiver, it all means absolutely nothing. The clerk will not bother to check ID and will simply hand off your cash to whomever walks in the door with the MTCN# and question/answer. Neither company will tell the sender who picked up the cash, at what store location or even in what country your money walked out the door. Neither company has any kind of refund policy, money sent is money gone forever.

Now that you have responded to a scammer, you are on his ‘potential sucker' list, he will try again to separate you from your cash. He will send you more emails from his other free email addresses using another of his fake names with all kinds of stories of great jobs, lottery winnings, millions in the bank and desperate, lonely, sexy singles. He will sell your email address to all his scamming buddies who will also send you dozens of fake emails all with the exact same goal, you sending them your cash via Western Union or moneygram.

Do you know how to check the header of a received email? If not, you could google for information. Being able to read the header to determine the geographic location an email originated from will help you weed out the most obvious scams and scammers. Then delete and block that scammer. Don't bother to tell him that you know he is a scammer, it isn't worth your effort. He has one job in life, convincing victims to send him their hard-earned cash.

Whenever suspicious or just plain curious, google everything, website addresses, names used, companies mentioned, phone numbers given, all email addresses, even sentences from the emails as you might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted online. You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer.

6 “Rules to follow” to avoid most fake jobs:
1) Job asks you to use your personal bank account and/or open a new one.
2) Job asks you to print/mail/cash a check or money order.
3) Job asks you to use Western Union or moneygram in any capacity.
4) Job asks you to accept packages and re-ship them on to anyone.
5) Job asks you to pay visas, travel fees via Western Union or moneygram.
6) Job asks you to sign up for a credit reporting or identity verification site.

Avoiding all jobs that mention any of the above listed ‘red flags' and you will miss nearly all fake jobs. Only scammers ask you to do any of the above. No. Exceptions. Ever. For any reason.

If you google “fake check printing job”, “fraud Western Union money mule scam” or something similar you will find hundreds of posts from victims and near-victims of this type of scam.
