Home Typists Scam

"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!

How it works

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!

Reality Check

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. What a waste or money!
