How to recognize scammers when searching for work on the Internet
The last time the attackers are operating on the Internet with a special scale. No fear or hesitation. The amount defrauded and abandoned is increasing with each passing hour. Although it is not easy to immediately recognize scams, but knowing some of the schemes that they use, it is possible to calculate them.
You only need to pay postage
One of the oldest of the above is a variant of the alleged work at home. Offered free time to pack the wheels, glue the envelopes, packaged seeds, sort photos, etc. At the same time promised that the work will be simple and lucrative. It can offer via some sites or individuals.
After the potential victim by e-mail has been described in bright colors, only one small condition is required. It is necessary to pay the first batch of material and postal expenses, which are connected with this.
People usually do this for several reasons. At the moment, they do not seem to be spending that much, and they should quickly pay off by logic.
Once the money comes at the expense of the scammers – "cooperation" ends. In this case, is the expectation that over a few hundred rubles people will not run to court with a complaint. And a purely psychological factor – very few people want to stand in front of all the victim of fraud.
Test task for freelancers
Copywriters, web designers and programmers should be careful when working on the Internet. Every day there are more fraudsters who specialize specifically in this area. I am glad that almost all built on the same scheme.
Offered a permanent paid job at home. And only with one condition. The customer wants to check the professional skills of the future employee. So she asks him to perform a free test job. Usually after sending the finished job, all contact ceased. Scammers stop responding to messages and could not be contacted. And eventually cheated freelancer can detect your article on any website.
How to learn to recognize scammers
Almost all criminals hide their details, for example the purse. Should carefully consider if such data are not available. Scammers are afraid to show it, because deceive the Internet user may file a complaint against him. In this case, the attacker can lose their money and be locked.
Also, it will not be superfluous to see reviews about the site that offers work. If a lot of negative things are expressed in his address, then fears are justified.
