Admin Assistant Job Offer Scam: How It Works

(with video below) Making money from the comfort of your home is extremely tempting. This is why everyone and their dog try to find the secret formula to create an income that would save them time, gas, and mental health. If you are one of those looking for a great job offer, be aware of the latest employment scam.

Scammers contact you via email or even specialty websites that you put your resume on. If you experienced anything like this, feel free to submit the names of the people who contacted you in the Comments section at the end of this article.

The Admin Assistant Job Offer Scam is part of the same ‘work-from-home’ group of schemes (or the Personal Assistant Wanted scam) that has been hitting all the employment platforms lately. How does it work?

Watch the video below to see the Personal Assistant Job Offer scam exposed:

In the Admin Assistant Job Offer scam, the victim will receive an email/message from a company looking to hire. The ad looks like this: “Hiring part-time admin assistants to help with invoices, data capturing, and other office related work. FROM HOME. Salary – from $400-600/day”.

Tempting, right? 

Here is the hook. In order to get started, you are required to pay for ‘training materials on how to get started’, which will cost you around $200. You send over the money, and what do you get?

A bunch of copied and pasted articles on how to make $400-600 from home! Basically, in order to cover their fraud, the crooks DO send you something (the articles), just so they can justify the cost they charged you.

In other cases, you get nothing back. No job, no ‘training materials’, no money. 

Often, the scammers will ask you even for your personal information, which could lead to identity theft.

Admin Assistant Job Offer Scam: How To Avoid

One of the names used by the scammers as the representatives of these sneaky companies is Vicky Taljaard. However, they could change it to any name, especially after they are exposed on pages like this one.

Request a telephone interview as well as ask very detailed questions to help you verify the employer’s identity. Ask for clients they worked for and make sure they are real. Do not give personal information to anyone who simply offers a “one-time amazing opportunity for employment”.

Well-paid jobs don’t just fall on your lap randomly. Always do your research and work only for legitimate employers. If you’re looking for a job and seek to make some money online until you find the next job, here is a company below that is trustworthy and offer good opportunities:

I received a letter by snail mail exactly promising what the article says. It is from a a guy called Paul Burgard and he calls his campaign "Pay Once and Profit for Life".

A Dr. Jeffrey Bargsten e-mailed me regarding an ‘Admin Assisting job’. This is my third one in about two months. Three different people have contacted me regarding my resume posted on indeed. I feel as if indeed needs to screen or make sure the jobs or people on there seeking employers are legit. This is very annoying and inconvenient.

I was also contacted via LinkedIn by a certain Jeffrey Bargsten who asked me for an estimate for a translation job that he needed to do. I sent him the quote and he immediately approved it saying that this is exactly what he had budgetted. But the whole transaction left me doubtful because we do not usually done this way.

Good information but grey text on a white background does not have enough contrast for many people to read.
