    New to WFH concept thanks to the economy [​IMG] and need your help on this "opportunity". Responded to a post on Craigslist from a Linda Cox at Samsungmobile for data entry people @ $25/hr.

    When I put in her name and Samsung - WFH forum came up showing Linda Cox name. Now I can't find the info. So help - is this ligit? or another scam.

    Hi WFHwannabe,

    I doubt that anyone would pay $25/hour for data entry. I wouldn't bother trying to pursue that one.

    Trust your gut.

    Newbie shield is right. Lately a lot of scammers have been using big company names to get people to respond to them.

    Wow, so much money for data entry job.
    I doubt it is a real job. It may be another scam.

    Linda Cox: You will be receiving a payment from the comany
    Linda Cox: company
    Linda Cox: A date with a friend
    balancemebooks: a payment?
    Linda Cox: As soon as you receive the payment you are to deduct 200 dollars from it and then send the balance to the shipper who will be responsible for the shipping of our supplies
    balancemebooks: I don't get it
    balancemebooks: that has nothing to do with data entry
    Linda Cox: the 200 dollars that you will deduct is your petty cash for the upkeep of your mini office
    Linda Cox: Its just an assignment
    Linda Cox: we need to know if we can trust you with company fund
    Linda Cox: Its called a Test of Trust
    balancemebooks: well, it's not an assignment I'm comfortable with because my bank has warned us against these types of transactions
    Linda Cox: I understand you
    Linda Cox: But i can assure you that you are secured
    balancemebooks: how can you assure that?
    Linda Cox: Thats why we are connecting all our employees to our secured net work
    Linda Cox: to make sure you are all secured
    Linda Cox: We are aware of the High Rate of internet fraud
    Linda Cox: there is an option
    Linda Cox: okay
    balancemebooks: what's that?
    Linda Cox: can you purchase the package with your money
    Linda Cox: its 800 dollars
    balancemebooks: are you directly affiliated with Samsung Electronics?
    Linda Cox: if you can do that then no problem
    Linda Cox: the 800 dollars will be included with your first week salary
    balancemebooks: I can't do that
    Linda Cox: good
    Linda Cox: so what do you think
    balancemebooks: good?

    Linda Cox has signed out. (4/10/2009 9:52 AM)

    DO NOT believe anything from Samsung! I talked to them yesterday and was told that they don't advertise positions on Craigslist! They only advertise on their website, and through temp agencies!!!
