Let me state right up front: we won’t be trying this one out.
Deep Thought: If this is an online job I can do anywhere, why do I have to enter my zip code to find out there are three openings in my home town?
Answer: Because workathomerecruiters.com is misleading me.
Beware of Workathomerecruiters.com
It’s a familiar sales tactic: Enter your zip code below to see if positions are open near you.
That’s what greets you when you visit workathomerecruiters.com. Guess what? No matter WHERE you live, even if it’s zip code 00000, there will be three openings in your town. That’s because the Web site is not really looking at real jobs. It’s just a lead generation page that does two things:
- Captures your email address and phone number for future sales calls/emails
- Tries to sell you an “auction processing” program for $97
We’ve looked at auction processing before. Read our full review here, but the short version is that it’s affiliate marketing brought to you by the same crooks that brought you Angela Penbrook and Rebate Processing.
What is Misleading About Workathomerecruiters?
It claims you will make $13 for every auction listing you “process.” This is misleading because the site doesn’t tell you exactly what that means. It means you list an item to be sold by auction at eBay. You will make $13 IF the item you list sells after someone clicks on your link and IF the commission is $13. Read that again. You get paid:
IF the item you list sells after someone clicks on your link
IF the commission is $13
However, the scammers are counting on you thinking that “processing auctions” means listing a product to be sold. It’s a simple bait and switch.
Hmm…Workathomerecruiters.com = Processauctions.com
This is interesting. Go to processacutions.com (I won’t link to it.). Now go to workathomerecruiters.com and put in your zip code and an email address so you can get to the next page.
Now compare the two pages. They’re obviously based on the same template, down to the ridiculous testimonials and signatures. The sidebar articles, “Who is Linda Pierce” and “Who is Emily Thomas” are especially enlightening.
But Joe, If it Works, $97 is Worth it!
We always get this argument. What’s $97 for the chance to make thousands? Tell you what…you sign up and then let us know how it goes. I’m not about to give money to these people.
