Facebook: Work From Home Program

Facebook Work From Home Program Scam: How It Works

You might have seen lately on your Facebook newsfeed – or on the other social media outlets – that Facebook is hiring. It seems that they’re looking for people interested in joining their “Work at Home Program” and making money from the comfort of their bedroom. There are mentions of the program being featured on CNN, US Today, or ABC. How does the scam work?

Watch the video below to see in detail the Facebook Work From Home scam exposed:

Similar to the Marketing Kit Scam, this one leads you to believe that the program will bring in thousands of dollars a month. You are required to open the application page, then asked to provide your name and email address to ‘check availability’.

A next page will then pop up congratulating you on being eligible. That’s when you are invited you to download a ‘Facebook Millionaire’ kit for only four dollars. However, little do you know that your credit card will be charged $94 per month for continued access.

The Scheme Is Also Known As Facebook Bonanza

The thing is, tricksters even put this charge on the fine print as well as a “Results Might Vary” disclaimer — so you can’t really blame them! Since very few people read the fine print, the “money-making machine” is not really them, but the scammers themselves. All the best-kept secrets of marketing on the Internet are still to be discovered…

In a different variation of the scam, crooks advertise the term “Facebook Fortunes Home Income Flow” or “Facebook Bonanza”. Displaying a bunch of fake Facebook likes and comments, as well as phony news articles where this program is featured, criminals lure victims to submit their credit card numbers and charge huge amounts on the spot.

How To Avoid The Facebook Work From Home Scam:

Facebook does not have this program. It’s a fake. Ignore the “Make Millions From The Comfort Of Your Home” deals, especially if they come with a “Limited Positions Available” tag. Do not send any money for any wonder money-making kits online. Always do your research and work only for legitimate employers.

If you are really looking for a job and seek to make some money online until you find the next ideal job, join Swagbucks.com, which is the world’s largest free online rewards program. You get paid by doing things online which you might do anyway, such as searching the web, discover products, take surveys, watch videos, or play games. You can also get free iTunes and Amazon cards. The company has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. You can register for free HERE.

I did get this email and thought it was true, and put my debit card information on it, and it only continued to show the same page requesting credit card info, instead of confirming my payment and next step to getting started, so therefore I believe this was a attempted scam!

Its indeed a scam for I got scam and lost almost $140 when I sign up with my visa card. The site says it for free and doesn’t need to buy anything but when you check your account they already transfer your money to their account. It is not money for your pocket, its money for their instead. The site was Homeincomeflow.net and their target are Filipino people for the title of the article say Facebook offers Filipino work from home.
