Answered an employment ad in Craigslist.  Inbound Call Agents-$1000-$1500-per week - Work From Home and then called Steve Vaughan At: 888-649-0012. I was asked to visit a website, watch the video and then call back on his private number ( probably a google number ) to set up an orientation. This video and ad stresses no cost involved. What they dont disclose is that this whole exercise is about getting your credit card and thats it. They make it seem like you will get 100 inbound calls a day and makes up to 4k a week taking calls for people who want free offers. They reference brand named companies and thier products and services like Netflix and ProActive.

Here is the bottom line.
You are directed to a website to start filling out your personal information and then are stopped as you dont have enough credits to continue. Haha well the whole bait and switch is that we are all consumers and you now as a condition of working with this fraudulent company whos website is registered as anonymous in whois look up, but are told the company is in California, you must select one of the offers yourself. You are being misled to give out all your personal info and credit card to a guy who's name is probably fake as well. At the end, if you go along with it, you will get a website address, number like Steves, a copy and paste email script, and you will go out and find, not consumers who want free stuff, but more unsuspecting job seekers who are just being converted to "consumers" to steal your identity and financial information. I let Steve know I turn in people like him the authorities after he tried to convince me it was not a scam and was promptly hung up on. If any job on any website directs you to a video and not a company, its most likely a scam!! Dont waste your time. Take names, numbers and turn these people in to the local police if not federal authorities and the FTC. They are predators.

Dailybreadwinners IS legit!!

AUTHOR: Jodi82 - (United States of America)

I don't know about anyone else but I am an average person. I am 29, a college student, and I try to make an honest living. There may have been people that had bad experiences with this company but I am not one of them. If you think that freetreasurechest (dailybreadwinners.com) is a scam, you have been sadly misinformed or you simply haven't given it a chance. It's not for everyone.

I will tell you that in my first week of working for the site, I have made good money. It is honest money. I NEVER misinform anyone that responds to my ads. I don't sugarcoat anything. I tell them that it all is based on how much work you put into it. I was skeptical at first myself. When I woke up after my 4th day of working with the company and saw those numbers in my paypal account, I was a true believer. This business is NOT for everyone. Some people make a great living off of it and some don't.The thing about craigslist is kinda tricky. They will flag you for any little thing. They don't like phone numbers and they don't like anything that says work at home.

There are so many scams on craigslist. When a legit company like us tries to advertise, they flag us, assuming we are too, but that is simply not the case. I put my own name on this company because this is my job and I make good money at it. They aren't scamming anyone at all! If you get into this business and you don't make money that's your own fault! People expect to get something for nothing that talk bad about this company. Also that ad poster that stated 1,000 to 1,500 was a little unrealistic. You probably can make that if you put enough effort but the average agent makes about 500-800.

You have to put a little bit of effort into it! IF anyone was misinformed about the business, it is the posters fault and not the company! Don't blame the entire company for one bad experience with an agent.  Everyone needs to do a bit more research before they are so quick to judge. And as far as money being removed from someone's account? I HIGHLY doubt that was this company. Someone probably got your information and hacked your account! I use paypal. It is completely secure! I have had no problems, EVER! They have a very professional team of employees that handle their tech support and I have been very pleased with my career with this company. Shame on anyone for judging a legit business. This is how I pay my bills and I am proud to be one of their employees!

First, my name is Scott. I have been working for DailyBreadGivers for under a week and now. Generally, before I decide to even consider starting any job opportunity, I always look for reviews on it; or I look for it in the BBB archives. That's just common sense. I've had my fair share of bad calls when it comes to joining the wrong programs online. Who hasn't? That's how you learn in this industry?

For most of us, we've all been there. It's kind of like relationships - you have to weed-out all the bad catches before you get a good one. It's the same in the online business world. Just like I've told many, many people already; once you get scammed once or twice (or more) by these illegitimate systems, you get really good at recognizing the scams. But at the same time, it's kind of a good thing that this happens, because you pick-up quickly int the REAL programs.

Legitimate online business networks EXIST. DailyBreadGivers is a perfect example of one that works. I've been an independent referral agent through them for less than a week now. I've made WAY more than I originally anticipated. This is the speed bump that legitimate companies have to endure - scorned, impatient, and ticked-off people who don't make the best of the tools given to them.

Those are the people who never see these programs through; so they quickly give up and start complaining about "scam this, and scam that".  Ultimately, they miss out on an unbelievable amount of income as a result of that kind of attitude. They think they're going to get rich overnight - or in a week or two. And for most new people, that's not the way of it. 

So, I guess the moral of the story would be - don't believe everything you hear from people who seem scorned or pissed-off because it could cause you to potentially miss out. And for all you know, you're opinion of that said company could be the exact opposite (like mine is right now). It's simple really; the people who complain all have one thing in common - they haven't made the income they expected or any at all.

Just like anything else in this world, you get out of it, what you put into it. It's called BALANCE. I will continue to use this income tool as one of many online streams of cash flow, until it no longer works. Good luck to anyone who joins our team, and I sorry for anyone who joins and struggles. Consistency, perseverance, and most importantly. ATTITUDE are the keys to making it in the industry. So, if you remember anything, remember that. Take care and God Bless.

It's sad that people have done so poorly with something so good.

AUTHOR: brookelyn39 - (United States of America)

 As with anything you order online,  you will give your information to order ANY product.
 Where's the confusion?
This program really works!  What people are doing with it, is something else.
You advertise for a collective of companies and products,  you get paid.  THAT SIMPLE
Just like some company that would advertise for Coke or Pepsi, they get paid.
  You must partake in at least one offer.  Do you order a product online and tell them you will mail them a check?  Same principle applies here.  
Perhaps people have not taken the time to train you, and you're angry.  I would be too.
I made about $1000 in 4 days.  I am quite happy with it.  I take the time to train anyone.
 I tell people to call me for any questions, day or night.  So what is the scam?
It's sad, this is excellent in this time of no jobs.  Why people are trying to tear it down, is beyond me.
If someone needs help, and I can help you, contact me.

In Today's Age; If you want to work from home, Please learn the ropes

AUTHOR: Manzawa - (United States of America)

I just want to throw a quick rebuttal in here with regard to freetreasurechest.com, znz.com and any other site like it. For people who are afraid of doing anything and think that everything online that is outside the norm is a scam, I beg you to consider that people who are marketing online are typically utilizing methods that are 1. proven successful, 2. hard to deem reputable because of people who don't know much or anything about the the online marketing world. I am an online marketer and have been for 2 years.

I have built several websites and have acquired over 200 partnerships with Fortune 500 companies who trust and approve my marketing method. Unfortunately for me, there are thousands of other marketers out there who are my competition...so therefore I need to get as creative as possible in order to still put food on the table and not lose sight of my dreams. These companies who everyday consumers are really quick to claim as "SCAMS" a lot of times (not all of the time) are doing just the same: trying to implement creative marketing strategies to maintain and grow their businesses...and yes even a person working from home without a brick and mortar location can still be a reputable business who is just trying to grow.

Consumers who don't know anything about marketing- the risks involved as far as costs and even reputation, I beg you to consider the fact that we could utilize other methods to promote our business that do not include you and do not offer you a way of making money. If you've ever read a billboard, picked up a flyer, received a post card, or ignored or been denied a telemarketing job, these are all marketing methods that DO NOT benefit you...

please learn to appreciate the innovative marketing techniques online companies are trying to use in order to contribute to and build our economy. Just because you don't understand something, does not make it a scam. Do you research, weigh your options...and in this case...if all you have to do is remember to cancel your trial and tell someone else to do the same...that's not really too much of a trade off.

Now You Tell Me

AUTHOR: scammedagain2 - (United States of America)

I just signed with the company and after reading the comments here, believed the company to be a scam and ended my involvement. I put an ad on craigslist where  I found the offer initially and my ad was flagged and removed, thus convincing me this offer was a scam, in fact there was mention on craigslist dailybreadgivers.com and free treasurechest were scams.

I immedicately took my personal information off their sites and notified my bank not to accept any transactions unless they contacted me first. Now I don't know what to think.I don''t want to be involved with a company that is  a scam and convince others to participate who were sincerely looking for work to be deceived. That is not the kind of person I am.

Response to a sadly misinformed person

AUTHOR: Steve - (United States of America)

 This report was filed by a person going by the name of Pamela Kimble of Southern California/Laguna area. 
Please allow me to set the record straight and fill in some missing gaps. Free Treasure Chest is an online promotional marketing network for a number of Fortune 500 companies including Direct TV, Netflix, Pro Active and many more. The marketing group assists these advertisers in expanding their brand name by providing them an online exposure platform for potential customers. Free Treasure Chest recruits and trains new agents through a division called Daily Bread Givers.
Free Treasure Chest has been actively promoting whats called freebie advertising or free trial marketing for over 3 years and  has paid out over 2 million dollars in commissions to agents. Freebie marketing or "free trial marketing" as it is also called, has been in existence for over 50 years. Weve all seen ads in newspapers, magazines and now the internet whereby a company will offer a free 7 day, 14 day, or 30 day trial for various products or services. I checked my email on Yahoo this morning and there was a banner ad for QuickBooks offering a Free 30 day trial download NOW!  These companies pay thousands of dollars to publications and online advertising companies to present their free trial offers to the reader/consumer.
With Free Treasure Chest, the only difference is that the advertiser pays individual agents to virally promote and present the free trial offers to consumers. When an agent presents a trial offer for Netflix to a consumer, Netflix will send the agent x amount of dollars when the consumer signs up for their free trial. It makes no difference whether the consumer continues using the service or product after the trial ends, the agent still gets paid immediately.  It's truly a "win-win-win": the companies, the consumers and the agents all benefit.

These Fortune 500 companies and their trial offers are all listed on the Free Treasure Chest online portal. When a consumer decides to try out a certain product, lets use CreditReport.com for example, they will click on a link, which will take them to the company website: http://www.creditreport.com/. As you will see, this is an Experian company. Experian is one of the three major credit reporting agencies in the country with over 2 billion dollars in sales last year.  CreditReport.com offers a 7 day free trial. When a person signs up for the free trial, they do have to put down their credit card, so that, in the event they decide to continue with the service, the company will be able to bill them on a monthly basis. This is how all free trial offers work, regardless of whether you find them in your local newspaper, a magazine or online. The offer states that you will not be billed if you cancel the offer before the end of the trial. They must abide by these rules, otherwise it would be fraud.  I actually tried this offer myself to see what my credit report looked like. I did not keep the service and cancelled after 5 days. I was not billed during the trial period nor after I cancelled.
Neither Daily Bread Givers nor Free Treasure Chest asks for an agent to give them any credit card information or personal information such as SSN to become an agent.  If they were indeed stealing your identity and financial information as Pamela claims, they would have been shut down by the attorney general of California long before this.
Pamela Kimble has claimed that she never gives out her credit card information over the Internet.  I asked her if she ever bought anything on eBay, and she replied that she would never purchase anything over the Internet with her credit card. The curious thing is that Pamela Kimble purports to have a past employment background involved in international banking.  Isnt it curious that with that high degree of banking experience, Pamela is unaware of the extreme measures that companies go to protect their customers from people stealing their credit card information and identity; and further more, how the banks, who own the credit card companies protect the consumer from companies and individuals stealing their financial information for profit. I detect an extreme case of paranoia in Ms. Kimble when it comes to her credit card. 
I have been an agent for Free Treasure Chest since the first week of February. The customer service is impeccable and I have received every penny of commission I have earned. I have been able to generate over $1000 per week since the 3rd week and the best part is that it is paid into my Paypal account daily. It has been a true blessing to me and my family to have found this opportunity when so many Americans are out of work. This is not a get-rich-quick scheme. The program works if you are willing to roll up your sleeves and apply yourself. 
I have experienced the Pamelas of the world, and there is a good chance that she will respond to my rebuttal. Please feel fee to call me at the above number to get all the facts and do your own due diligence.
