Scams from the email bag…

2 Comments

Who knew that looking forward to spam could be so disappointing. Of the three fake resumes I put online last week, only one of them has received any job offers and that is the stay at home mom looking for some telecommuting work.

Her resume explicitly states that she is looking for a work at home job. You’d expect the job scams to come pouring in, right? Wrong. I’ve only received three emails in the past week. How disappointing.

Here they are:

Anyways.

These are all just payment processing scams. You know, the scam where they send you a fake check, you cash it, send money away, then the check bounces leaving you thousands of dollars in debt. Yea, that scam.

There's only ONE program I really recommend. It helped me turn my 'hobby' into a $10,000+ per month money making machine. Click here for the exact formula I followed.

    Hey Steve! These job offers are absurd! As one other visitor said, the grammar is unacceptable, (downright incorrect), and the format, (structure), is pitiful. It’s actually pathetic the way they present themselves but so many people who receive these so called, “job offer,” emails want them to be legitimate it’s almost easy to overlook their false approach.
    Good for you Steve, for alerting as many people as you can to this type of scam!

    The main, and most obvious, way that I identify a scam is if the grammar and spelling–and formatting of the e-mail–are bad. Someone who works for a legitimate company doing legitimate hiring won’t use bad grammar or spelling, especially grammar as awful as the scams I get in my e-mail.
