If it looks like a pig, smells like a pig, rolls in the mud like a pig and snorts instead of puckering up when you try to kiss it, it ain’t a Clydesdale!
Alert I’ve Tried That reader Karen sent us this:
This site is for a job called, “Auction Listing Agent.” Costs $197.00 and what you’ll be doing is logging into Ebay, finding products for big name companies like Dell, etc., and filling out forms for $5 a pop. You are getting products listed to big names companies for auction and getting paid to fill out a form.
Is this for real? I think not! It’s run by Jennifer Johnson. At first she says no experience/education needed-then she says there is no competiton because this is a secret and nobody has the education or training to do it. Provides you with a mentor. My vote-Scam. Please tell me your vote. Thank you
I’m voting with you, Karen.
Readers who have been with us for very long will remember the Angela Penbrook/Angel Stevens rebate processing scams from last year. One of those scams cost $197, too. I think there’s a scammer’s Bible somewhere that says Thou Shalt Charge $197 for Thy Garbage.
Those sites also had a video pop up script that played a little video of Angela or Angel or Diana telling you all about how you can change your life with an hour per day and they’ll show you the secrets. This “auction listing” queen is Jennifer Johnson.
“Hi,” she says cheerily. “I’m Jennifer Johnson.” What the hell ever. Hi Jennifer! I’m Cary Grant. “I have an urgent message for you that could change everything,” she chirps.
Oh, Jennifer is also “America’s Top Work-at-Home Consultant.” No, really. I kid you not. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to see. I wonder if Angela or Angel or Diana knows Jennifer has taken her title! Maybe they’ll get in a mud pit and wrestle it out! Let’s watch!
Sorry, I get carried away. It’s just that we’ve seen all this before.
Big companies like Dell are not sitting around hoping that you’ll list their products on eBay! You aren’t going to list auctions and get paid for filling out a form! You get paid IF someone clicks on the item you list and then buys it.
When homejobplacement.org says, “If you’re serious about working an extremely lucrative real job from the comfort of your home, I urge you to get started right now,” it is misleading you. It’s an outright lie to say it’s a real job. A real job is one in which you get paid a known amount in exchange for your time and skill.
Not IF the company makes money. Not IF the customers buy the right product. And you sure don’t have to pay an employer for the privilege of working!
So you’re right, Karen, and thanks for speaking up. Here is one person’s experience with another “auction listing” offer:
When I get this program I thought I was going to get an special program to put auctions in Ebay for diferents companies like Emily Thomas announce on this website “http://www.workathomerecruiters.com/index2.php ” I feel like I have been bamboozled, because I do not have recieve any thing that you promise on your web site.
I would like to know when you are going to send me that information, because the main reason I paid US$97.oo was get that program no a EBAY course that you sent me instead my money. Its no fair you act like that this is the principal reason many people do not belive in internet business, please be honest.
They’re all the same pigs, just with different lipstick. Stay away from Homejobplacement.org.
