Online Fraudsters

I replied to an ad for admin work from home.   I paid R150.00 for the training manual.  I received a training manual via email for the R150.00 I paid.   Once I had read through the manual, I realised that there was actually no real work involved.   All one was doing, was placing free ads advertising admin positions, to which unsuspecting people replied and paid a fee for the supposedly training manual.  The training manual explains how to advertise the work from home job for free on various websites.  It also states that you may charge whatever you feel is reasonable for your time spent placing the ads.   When someone pays the fee the training manual is sent to them.   There is no real admin work involved, except for placing the various adverts for free.  There are also no products involved, or any legitimate businesses.   Do not fall for this scheme.   There are thousands of people who are genuinely looking for an extra income and these people are preying on their innocence.

    A related scam is that one starts recieving job offers (usually overseas positions) after posting details to recruitment sites. You are eventually supposed to meet someone at some location (seemingly safe). Warning: they are kidnap attempts. Just by cross-checking the email adress on the internet, you will find reports related to these email adresses.
