Today I got the letter in the mail, more happy promises. I read it over twice, and then I noticed that they do not take Credit cards as payment, the check holding period is 28 days (the cash option made me laugh), nor do they have a phone number, e-mail adress or website listed. I thought that was strange. I decided to come online and try to find their site if they had one (I'm generally pretty good at it) In the the meanwhile, I was thinking over in my head how I could get my boyfriend to give me the money to start this. I figured it might be legit and I know I can seal 500 envelopes in an hour.
All of the sudden I saw "SCAM" come up and I was felt a wave of sickness come over me. I procedeed onto this site and I am amazed at how big of a scam this is... everyone from coast to coast has tried it out. I saw all of you who are out of money and thankfully I came across this because my last $25 would of been going out tomarrow morning to never never land.
I called up my local newspaper that ran the ad and talked to a kind woman there. She said there is really nothing that can be done about the scam this time around because the paper had been out for a week and who knows how many people have tried this. I would like to take this a step further because I am still out 70 dollars from other companies promising me stuff. 70 may not seem like a lot, but when your 19, living on your own and broke as hell, that 70 is gold. So, in conclusion, I think it would be good if we could get permission to run this websites link in all of our local "free ad" newspapers. Also, if you have a website, post the banner and send e-mails out to all your friends and family who you don't want to get scammed.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. And remember, ALWAYS check online before sending money anywhere, and if a company wants you to work for them, it shouldn't cost you anything (with the exception of work uniforms, gas, tip banks and equipment)
