Email Processing Work at Home Scam

When it comes to making money, greed will always steer a crook into taking money from people. If you're looking for a work at home position, here is one to avoid. The first lesson to learn from this phishy business is the fact they are wanting to charge the telecommuter for training materials. A legit company will never charge their telecommuters money for training materials.

The second red flag with this scam is the responsibilities of the position. They claim they will pay a person $15.00 - $20.00 to process emails, which involves copying and pasting responses into an email. No company is going to pay someone such a high amount of money to process emails when they can utilize an auto responder service to do so automatically, and in some cases for free.

A third red flag is their statement indicating there is no contract to sign, which is most likely because they have no intentions of paying for the so-called processed emails once they've collected the $16.00 from the person for the training materials.

What it boils down to is the fact the person is scamming individuals out of $16.00 for the so-called training materials. Don't take the crooks bait! Cancel their phishing trip by not responding to their email if you receive the following, and better yet be sure to report them to the proper authorities! The email below is exactly the verbiage the crook used, complete with their incorrectly spelled words. The only change is that we deleted their actual email address and their name, which was signed at the bottom.

I just wanted to start off by thanking you for your time and interest in the position. Basically what you would be doing is "processing" emails. This means that when someone clicks on an advertisement they will enter there contact information. you will then receive an email with that information. in the subject line of that email it will tell you what advertisement they replied to. you then look up in your training materials the corresponding reply. you cut and paste that reply into the email and click send. thats it you are done. yes it really is that simple. You will get paid 15 to 20 dollars for each "processed" email. The pay is immediate there is no waiting period what so ever. You are paid to your personal paypal account. If you dont have a paypal account then sign up for one free at www.paypal.com you will need the personal account because that one is the free account. therefor you arent charged anything for receiving money.

There is no website i can send you to or anything like that. I am an independent contractor just like you would be. This enables you to chose your own hours. There is no contract to sign you simply work when you want to or when you have the time. Like any legitimate online position there is a SMALL one time fee of 16.00 USD. This is only for administrative fees. All of your materials and training are provided to you. You are not left high and dry. In no way do I want anyone to feel miss lead. This is legitimate, there are no hidden fees what so ever. You may begin work as soon as you receive the materials. there is no waiting period. If you try this you are guaranteed to make money. With your first email you will have already made back your administrative fee.

I was skeptical at first just like anyone else, but i did my research and found that anything you would want to do at home requires a small fee. so i decided to try it, and trust me Im happy i did. I make on average 500 dollars a week. give or take. I figured hey if I could sit in my jammies all day and make money then why the heck not. there is an unlimited amount of work. If you are still interested simply open a paypal account and process the administrative fee. send the payment to scamprocessing@crooksville when you do that I will receive an email from paypal. at that time i will send you all of the information you need to get started immediately. Thanks for your time and have a great day.

We hope this example serves you well to learn by in regards to work at home email processing scams!

Hi am John from Nigeria. I got another version of that email on processing mails for $25 and it sounded funny to me so i decided to do some check to confirm my fears about it which you did. Thanks for doing a good job to expose the hidden tricks behind this scam. People should just look for something better to do other than trying to scam others of hard earned money. Cheers my brother and keep up the good job.

Tammara,
I hope you dont mind. I was emailing back and forth and trying to research all at the same time. I copied and pasted part of your webpage into an email. And here is the response I received back. (I removed the email address).

Thank you for this site. I was almost at the sending-the-money point.

I do feel I have answered all your questions and have dine anything and everything I can. There are one billion and eight scams and things like you have sent me right here, out there. I honestly felt I have done anything and everything i can to assure you it is different, legit, and anything but a scam. I feel that if one keeps doing research and finding things if the nature that you have sent ne, that there is no way for me to compete with all the scams.
If this were a scam would I really answer all your questions and be as patient as I have been all for 25?
I am at my ropes end. There really is nothing else I can do for you. I am going to let you know I appreciate your time and your interest, but I am going to have to tell you this is probably not going to work out for you. I have answered everything i can and it will never be enough. I am only one person vs an entire web world of information.
I do hope you enjoy your holiday.

Taylor,

Again I know I ask a thousand questions. But is this kind of work being offered? I found this on a website called moneyillusions.com

Thanks for your comment! Obviously they are still using that same old email processing bait to collect $16.00 from each person. Business is alive and well for scams, and probably doing very well in a poor economy as people desperately attempt to find a way to earn a living from home.

KENYANSIR said...

SO THERE IS NO GENUINE BUSINESS ABOUT EMAIL PROCESSING?IS THERE REAL WEBSITE THAT PAY PEOPLE FOR ONLINE JOBS?

Tammara said...

Hi Kenyansir,

Yes, there are legitimate companies that hire people for online jobs.

Many large corporations hire people to respond to customer complaints sent in through emails, but you aren't going to find those advertised as 'email processing' positions. Those might be advertised as 'Customer Service Specialist' as an example.

Thanks for commenting!

i am patrick from kenya, and i really do appreciate what you're doing, talking people out of these online scams. Are the any legit sites that offer online working opportunities without asking for a starter kit which will obviously cost you dime? If any, i would really appreciate it if you could list them for me, coz i've been trying this for a long time in vain.
