Only Legit Work at Home Jobs has now refined even further their "fraudulent status" since Lezlie's February '04 report. Their customer service number directs you to a website address that ALWAYS provides you with a "mail failure delivery attempt notice" in your email inbox. However, something in that website address links to an automatic response from "replypro.com" which repeats the same message you may have received a dozen times. Each of those emails provides an email address at the bottom and even the name of a customer service rep, Lisa. The email tells you to get their "Work at Home Guide" and gives an email address. This new email address takes you to the website where you have to place an order for their work at home guide - EVEN - if you have already paid for this guide, received an email acknowledging your order and been given a ship date, which also doesn't happen. All in all, they have about 5 email addresses; some work, some don't. But the ones that do, simply round-robin you back to the "purchase the Work at Home Guide" website.

They actually now offer 2 publications. One is the Work From Home Employment Directory with free updates for a month for $26.95. This publication is supposed to be mailed to you. The other is the Work At Home Guide for $49.95 with free updates for a year which is supposed to be emailed to you within 24 hours (you only find out about this guide after you've purchased the directory and viola~ been offered a position.

2 days after I ordered the Directory and received my confirming order email, I was "offered a position" as an executive secretary with a company at $52,000.00 per year with an actual start date, even given the so-called name of the person I would be reporting to. The email was signed by Susan T. Campbell, Director, Human Resources (for whom I don't know), which makes the email look very official. The email said I would be required to get a copy of the Work At Home Guide for complete instructions on my new career, and given a different email address. Upon going to that site, that's where you find out you have to purchase the Work At Home Guide in order to "get" the Guide. OK, fine, so I did. 3 days later, the day I was supposed to "start" my new position, I still didn't have a Guide, so sent an email to each of the 3 email addresses I had for them. 2 were mail failures, one was replied to as an automatic response from replypro.com, saying dear subscriber, if you have not received you5r work at home guide or weekly updates, please send them an email (at yet another email address, which I did and which also generated a mail delivery failure notice) AND to visit all the following web links listed.

I visited these web links (7 of them), and to their credit, there were pages full of job postings to scroll through and reply to via either mail or email. I replied to several of them, got a few mail failure delivery notices, some of my emails went through, but NEVER heard from anyone about anything. Assuming I may have gotten ahold of "old" listings, I checked one week later for updates and found none. I starting sending emails, one after the other, to each email address I would be directed to only to find myself back at a newly dated resone copy of the very same email I started out with. And they had the audacity to continue putting a customer service person's name on the email with a completely different email address to respond to. Each of my responses would generate some kind of automatic reply respeating earlier emails. Finally, I sent a threatening email and received responses from both Lisa AND Susan T. Campbell wherein Susan again offered me a position with a specific start but again directing me to get the Work At Home Guide, which started all over again asking me to place an order for $49.95.

All of this has taken about a month, and I still have nothing and no weekly updates on any of these websites and no job. What I can't believe is that there would be some well-known company names supposedly offering work-at-home jobs on these lists (like CIGNA who everybody knows as an HMO Insurance provider), but how can we even be sure this ad is really from CIGNA?

Is this whole work at home program a scam??? I would at this point say YES, it surely must be. HOWEVER, even though my investment is only $80.00, I WILL get my money back. Either they don't realize (or they do, but the general lay person does not know) that all these continued round-robin "response" emails I've received plus job offers constitutes evidence substantial enough that by printing the entire mess and sending the whole thing to my credit card company with a letter stating that I am disputing these charges, will, after research by my credit card company, provide me with a credit to my account. I went through something similar 3 years ago and did get a credit issued by my credit card company.

I thought that the simple fact that they had 7 website pages of "supposed" job postings probably made them a legitimate company just goes to show the lengths to which some business will go to make any kind of profit at all. I believe the last laugh will be mine here, but it sure has taken a lot of time.

Sorry for the length of this posting, but everyone should know exactly what to expect from these people and all the details so no-one thinks this is "sour-grapes" posting where I myself may be at fault.

Hope this helps anyone potentially considering spending any money to secure a work-from-home position with this group of shysters.
