This “Google is Hiring you to work from home” thing is a scam. When you see a scam like this, look up the sites with something like samspade.org and find out the name of the web host. Then you can report them and get them shut down.
This site has the bait, a fake news article:
Looking up (www.news3insider.com) you find [ 22.214.171.124 ] hosted by eNom Inc. Looking up eNom, you find that as of 2007, it was the second largest domain name registrar, managing over 8 million domains. – wiki What can you do?
Next, there is the site that asks for your credit card number:
What can you do? Same thing. Look up secure.securesiteorders.com and find the host.
Click HERE to report phishing by securesiteorders to their host, GoDaddy. (Select Phishing from the “Type of Abuse” menu. )
If you follow the link and read the fine print you will see that you are agreing to be billed repeatedly. The INCOME EASY STREET web site should be blocked for illegal activity, but it is still up and running at this time (Friday Oct 23, 2009). I hope the feds nail these slimy bastards.
Google™ does not sponsor, endorse, and is no way affiliated with INCOME EASY STREET.
There have been a few different scam sites using this. FastCash is another one, Google Cash Club is another.
You know what the best part about all of this is? Should someone actually get all excited about this and click the link to start a new life working for Google, they end up on on a site similar to this Google Cash Club effort. What’s at the bottom of the page?
At a time when people are losing jobs, scams are on the increase. Getting their sites shut down is not the way to end this… If you can expose the people behind these scams and get them arrested, I’ll buy you lunch.
