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!

  2. Angela Tyson says:

  6. raven says:

    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.

  7. Chelsea says:

    whenever I turn on my laptop, I see an advertisement saying housewife in UAE work from home, they made this advertisement looks very reliable and convincing, that comes with testimonial from others. Out of curiosity I went to subscribe from the link given "Facebook Millionaires" then it directed me to the website starts with http://www.fortune bla bla bla…., it said subscription is not free said about AED79, when I was on the "fortune" page, it showed me FREE and keep flashing "hurry, limited time"… wow…. they really know how to tout business! I stopped when credit card information is needed. Then I went Google to check how true that advertisement was but found this. Thanks for sharing this.

  8. james says:

    They tried Rs 3649.67 at A LIND ENTERPRISES, Rs 6851.12 at SELECT SUCCESS TEC and Rs 10052.58 at HIGGINS TEAM LLC.
    fortunately my card was blocked. Hence no issues

  10. srihari says:

  11. aeiou says:

    i too was almost deceived by this scams. thanks to this site i didn’t fell to that scam. i hope everyone will know about this site. its great that people get informed whether things online are scams or real. thanks a lot!

  12. Prince Royal says:

    Here is exactly how it works:

    I was a victim of this scam when I saw the page informing that anyone can earn money by just sending message and links to others through Facebook. The website is http://www.fbnewsreports.com/t2/my/index-my.html. The scam also claimed that a person from Kuala Lumpur local, Richard Ng who lost his job earns few thousands of RM in a week. There were also positive comments from other Facebook users. Facebook and a few US Media logos were displayed too as though they had sponsored, recommended or broadcast the program.

    Soon at 11.05 p.m., I filled the particulars asked by the page including my IC, home address, mobile phone number and credit card information. Around 10 minutes later, I had received two emails from support@homeincomeflow.com, the company e-mail which implied my program membership and even processed my ID and password of the program. In the midnight, I had some uneasy feeling about the program so I immediately researched the program via Google and I had undergone a life threatening shock after all the horrible truths about the bogus program was revealed.

    The unidentified scammer who is the person behind this scam program does this promotion to embezzle money from their victims by obtaining their fundamental info. The display of logos are all fake so as the comments. Then, I did as what one of the websites instructed me to do. I attempted to add a comment and reply to comments, both failed.

    I clicked each and every of the so-called Facebook user who gave positive comments and all of it turns false when the page redirects to another Facebook user. Finally, I had concluded that the website and program is indeed a scam. The following afternoon, I had contacted the bank to cancel my credit card. The bank attendant told me to call the bank back 8 days later. She told me that a company with a name of DS Group had charged MYR 575(US$ 171.66).

    The scammer charged the payment without my consent despite they proudly advertise all is ostensibly free. For more info, the bank I had referred is CIMB Bank and the (Mastercard)credit card number is 5400-0711-0010-6919 under UMA DEVI expiring at 08/2019 and its CVV number is 309. Soon after that, I had lodged two reports each to my national Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission(MCMC) and National Consumers Complaints Centre(NCCC) via online, respectively.

    Thus far, I only got response form NCCC. In fact, I had sent two e-mails to the same e-mail address, which is ‘support@homeincomeflow.com’ to return the money and cancel my membership. It is the third day and still I did not get a response as I had expected.

    Today, I clicked the website which I registered the program and now it appears as "Error 400 Visit data was missing when handling click. To redirect a click, you must go through your campaign URL. Details: URL parameter ‘voluumdata’ is missing." I think the scammer knew about the many complaints made and erased the website.

    For more information, there are are many websites claiming as Facebook Fortunes, Facebook Millionaires and Home Income allegedly are operated by a single company which is unknown. Examples of websites are: 1) http://homeincomeflow.net/,
    2) http://homeincomeflows.com/,
    3) http://homeincomeflow.org/,
    4) http://easyonlineincomes.net/,
    5) http://internet-fortunes.com/

    Futhermore, I opened up this page, https://faithandalchemy.files.wordpress.com/2014/10/facebook-fortune1.png and it says it’s all free. Unfortunately, I had discovered that the address is blackened meaning which the scammer is hiding his info.

    Hi my name is gaurav, today in the morning I invested 4400 rs (indian rupees)in an online work from home business which was posted by Facebook.As the fraudulent people were using the name of facebook for business so I invested my money in it.But later on I came to know that it was a trap.Please I would like to raise a complain regarding this in Facebook and please let me know ,how i can recover this moneyAnd how i cn file a complaint against them.Also would like to advise facebook to take a strict action against these kind of fraud peopl

  48. Aruna says:

    Be careful guys, I have been fooled by advertisement of require freelancers to work by this becomefreelancer.net and sent nearly Rs 4500/- to them to register and they have merely sent me a book and couple of CDs of ‘How to be a Rockstar freelancer’ which is of no use.
    While advertising they said that they want people to work online for facebook, afterword also they give one number +14242395022 and show they are very much concerned about you by calling you and assuring you, but be careful it is nothing else but fraud. They are not giving you any freelancing job but selling their rubbish book for Rs 4500. Be careful, be alert.

  49. anburaj says:

    hai.this is anbu……….i don,t know about this scheme……today morning i have registed in that website….can you please help me and dactivate that form….they billed 4400rs on shipping day…..please help me

  50. Bipradas Mukherjee says:

    I realize that I also have become a victim of this scam. Just believing what it said. Though I have not yet received their so called shipment because it is done only very recently.While going through this page now I found that I have been duped. Specially the photo of Pradeep Bali with family made it look very convincing ! However I do feel that Face Book can not ignore these happenings and avoid responsibilities towards hapless citizens being duped every day.They must alert Face Book followers and other citizens about these fraudsters.

    Hi There is a lady name Cheryl stringfellow who is making fraud, thank god I was aware and didn’t take any steps before knowing my doubt and wanting people to be aware of it if they get an offer like just invest $150 to earn $1200 per week. I found on fb page that she write whoever is interested to work from and earn good amount asked to contact her. Being an idle currently I was little bit curious and excited so I replied her and asked to come with explanation and the conversation begins she asked me my whatsapp number the better communication. She sent me a picture of her, just a little bit doubt I asked her if we can have a video call, she said that’s impossible and told me you’re not interested about the job then I wrote you’re not an authentic person. Immediately blocked me from messenger Facebook and whatsapp. Just wrote to you for the awareness of the people. I am sure many people have been duped this way.
