Getting a load of work at home scams this fine Saturday afternoon. They all say that Google and Facebook have work at home opportunities. But of course there are no work at home positions with Google or Facebook. Instead these lead to a page that says earn $500 a day using Facebook and your computer. OK I think, sounds and looks like a money mule scam or one of these get paid for spamming nonsense links on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, blog comments and forums.
No! it isn’t even hardcore criminal activities like those. It is a pure and simple multi level marketing scam where nobody makes any money. Even the website itself says you won’t make any money. (My highlighting in the quote)
