Amazon Jobs From Home: The Newest Scam
Since Amazon became the world’s largest internet company by revenue, the number of employees reached an impressive number: 566,000. That is more than 60% from last year. There is no surprise that the company has now its own recruitment department who works daily with thousands of prospective staff members. However, the overnight success and the plethora of job opportunities created a perfect scenario for scammers to hit again. The latest con is the Amazon Jobs From Home approach. How does it work?
Watch the video below to see the Amazon Job Application Scam exposed:
Similar to the Craft Assembly or the Marekting Kit scams, the Amazon Jobs From Home trick leads you to believe that a dream job with the company is available starting next month. The scammers promise a very tempting income, such as a salary of $20/hour with the possibility of making $6,000/month.
In order to get the job, you are encouraged indeed to apply. Once the “Amazon job application is processed” you are informed that you’ve got the position and congratulated. However, to start the job you need to purchase an enrollment kit worth $200.
Many victims fall for this trick once the criminal get their trust. Don’t be one of them.
Amazon Jobs From Home Scam: How To Avoid
As a rule of thumb, do not send any money for any wonder money-making opportunities online. You should not be paying a job that is supposed to pay you. Look very careful at the email address they provide; is it something coming from Amazon (look at the domain name – amazon.com) or are there any numbers or any other extra letters within it (e.g. – JohnSmith@amazon17.com)?
If you want to make money online, always rely on the most reputable sources. Do your research and work only for legitimate employers. Type their names in the search engine and add the word ‘scam’ after – you’d be surprised what happens.
Last but not least, beware of other fake employment jobs during this month such as the Administrative Assistant Job, Regional Sales Representative, Walmart Job Opportunity, Job Prerequisite Course Scam, and the fake Car Wrap Job.
