Home Typing Scams
by BB Lee (C)2004

"Home Typing Scams" are one of the highest ranking work-at-
home scams on the Internet according to leading Internet fraud
watch dogs.

You see these "Home Typing Jobs" advertised across the
Internet. You probably receive their pitches in several
emails every day. These companies typically target anyone
who wants to work-at-home. Unfortunately, most of these
typing jobs are frauds. The following is a typical ad:

Home Typist Opportunity!
We offer you an excellent opportunity to earn cash working
from home as a "Home Typist." These jobs are available
world wide, you can set your own hours. Make up to a $1, 000
dollars a week working full time. No experience required!

Here's The Usual Scenario:
You receive a pitch like above for a "Home Typing Job" in
an email. The company sounds legitimate, claiming to provide
clerical help to leading business firms. They claim they are
over loaded with work and are recruiting new home based
workers.

The ad peeks your interest.

So, you respond to the ad with high hopes. They send you
a request. In order to process your application you must
send them a fee of anywhere from 29.00 and up. This is the
point where the red flags should go up.

Warning...Warning..Warning...Scam Alert!

But they don't. So, you send them the requested fee and
wait with baited breath for your first Home Typing Assignment!

In response (if any) they send you a list of companies who
might be hiring home typist. Or they might supply you with a disc
that includes instructions on how you can place similar
ads for home typist online or in print publications..and
sell respondants the same disc. Thus joining the ranks of the
scammers.

Who are the easiest victims according to online resources?

Moms at home raising children.
The disabled who are not able to take outside jobs.
Low income people desperate for cash.
Uneducated people with no job skills.

Actually, in my opinion, just about anyone looking to make extra cash might fall prey to these deceptive and misleading ads.

Be Wise:

Remember, the majority of Home Typing Opportunities online
are scams.

But if you do decide to get involved investigate the company.
Check the Better Business Bureau. Are they listed? How long have
they been in business? How many complaints have been filed against
them?

Report Offenders:
If you've been scammed by one of these companies report them to
the following agencies.

The Federal Trade Commission.
www.ftc.gov

Consumer Protection Agency.

Better Business Bureau.
