About a week ago, a woman in North Carolina was scammed out of thousands of dollars by a so-called “work from home” job.
The woman only communicated with her “employer” via text, and gave up her banking information in order to get “paid.”
The company ended up withdrawing her paycheck, along with the rest of the money in her account.
Unfortunately, as ludicrous is it sounds, people all over the country are being scammed by “work-at-home” ventures because they’ve become so desperate for work that the warning signs aren’t being seen.
Maybe this exact scenario isn’t happening everyday, but the point is, people are being scammed because they’re taking “opportunities” from the wrong “businesses.”
I say this only because there are so many fraudulent companies out there nowadays preying on vulnerable unemployed people who are simply just looking for any way to get back to work.
It’s disturbing that there are so many people, so many companies, in this country that are willing to take advantage of others just to make a quick buck.
When I started Career Without Walls, I knew there would be skeptics. In fact, I welcome skeptics.
If you aren’t questioning the integrity of a company, you only have yourself to blame if you end up getting scammed, especially with how many fakes there are today.
You have to ask to see what’s behind the curtain, and if they’re not going to let you in on it, it’s probably no good.
For example, I completely pull back the curtain, I tell you exactly what CareerWOW is, what we do, what to expect, heck, I even give you a week of free training.
So if you’re pursuing a work-from-home career – because they do exist, and you can prosper from them – just make sure you’re careful and make sure you ask questions.
Don’t let anyone take you for a ride; don’t let anyone take advantage of you!
Keep your eyes open for the fakes, and you’ll be able to pick out and easily spot the real deal.
