These emails might be funny, if people weren’t losing money. For example, this email is from “No Scam No Hype”. In my book any email that says that is waving a red flag. But my favorite part of this scam sales page is that it says you can earn $25 for every email processed…guaranteed. Then the letter tells a personal story of processing 20 to 25 emails a day and making $200 a day. Now I’m no math expert, but my calculator tells me that if this were legit, and she was processing 20 emails a day at $25 she would be making $500 a day.
These scams work much like envelop stuffing scams. You’re buy the “training materials” which tell you to send an email out like the one received (you probably have to buy a list). Every one who buys the “training” materials from you, then is told to dupe others by sending the same email.
I say it all the time, but it needs to be repeated….working at home is work. Legitimate work-at-home jobs and businesses are much like their traditional counterparts. There is no sign-up-do-menial-work-and-get-paid program.
