Almost everyone of us has seen or heard of the Internet scam. Some of them are very tricky. They may pretend to be very wise or to be very stupid that some people can’t judge if it is real or fake. For those who are good at verifying information, it is not really a big problem but for people who always believe what they see to be true will likely become their victims.
The way they cheat people can be very different ranging from e-mail notifying of your winning a lucky draw, e-mail asking you to assist them in getting fund left by their dead relatives, e-mail pretending to be from one of your friends who are overseas asking you to help then claiming they are in trouble, web promotion to get free job like this one and so on.
In this particular case as seen in the picture, it is a website saying you can work with them online and get paid very highly. As seen they make it so real for basic Internet users. They show the flag of the victim’s nation and testimonials from people in the country you are living based on the IP it detects. After reading all the details on their website and you feel more confident, you will be asked to register with just a few steps and they will ask you to pay the start-up membership fee and as it looks so real and easy to get the job with little job experience required, many people have fallen into their trap. For those who need jobs, they might be risking their money as it doesn’t cost too much (around $30) to get the job. As it sounds easy, some people don’t want to consult their friends and people they know about this so they risk it alone.
My point of posting this article is to alert my readers who are not familiar with this kind of scam to be careful. Internet access has become easily available to more people; meanwhile, it also has become very dangerous to surf the web from day to day.
