A strange email arrived from vogenesis @solrrplannt.bid titled ‘Typing Jobs – Highest Paid in LA’
Could someone really be trying to advertise typing jobs in a world where typewriters are only found in museums?
The email talks about how easy it is make Facebook posts and claims people are being paid up to $500 per day for such tasks while working from home.
The email quotes Jenny Lewis of the Home Trust Network as its expert on these work at home jobs.
But Jenny Lewis is just a seller of these kinds of ‘opportunities’ so its questionable whether she’s the person to trust.
The email also quotes various US government reports showing how some typists earn huge salaries.
To be realistic, there are some jobs keying in data of some kind – whether its to make Facebook posts or keying data into a database or writing tweets or articles etc.
But, by their nature most of these tasks are very dull and repetitive and don’t pay highly because there’s any number of temp agencies happy to provide people to do these tasks quickly and efficiently.
However, there is a huge demand for work at home jobs that pay reasonably and can be done at the person’s convenience. There’s far more demand than there are such jobs and that’s where scammers jump in to take advantage of people’s hopes.
Be very wary if you are looking for a work at home job as on average 59 out of 60 advertised online are scams.
