BBB BUSINESS REVIEW
If you have wired funds to an unknown, unverified source such as this one, you are at 100% of your wired funds not being refunded or reimbursed back to you. Given that the addresses being used are not real, BBB suggests you file a complaint with the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center at: www.ic3.gov
The BBB suggests using extreme caution when responding to offers such as these that have connections to out of country information and/or locations, and offers that only allow you to communicate via email or instant chat messaging to “size you up” for employment. While ads claim high earnings and short hours with little or no experience, BBB files nationwide indicate no evidence of anyone actually gaining a legitimate job, making the promised money, or seeing any refunds from monies wired to unknown sources.
Rarely, if ever, are these ads an offer of legitimate employment. Generally, these 'jobs' require upfront fees for information, background checks, and/or supplies, and only the scammers who run the ads make money.
Peddled online: Scammers reach hundreds of thousands of potential victims by sitting at their keyboard posting or placing phony ads or messages on Craigslist, via Facebook, and random spam email.
Online users need to be careful when browsing the Internet or inboxes and responding to unsolicited offers. Talented individuals can use a web page to create a company that looks very legitimate, but just because an ad looks legitimate on the computer screen is no reason to assume it is. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is. The same warning stands for mail, newspaper & telemarketing schemes as well. Check out the company FIRST with www.bbb.org and further investigate before you invest.
