Employment scams

A scam that coerced job hunters to forfeit an upfront fee to stuff envelopes at home has been shut down by a district court in the U.S.

According to a grievance brought by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, an U.S. Global Resources company promised job hunters up to $4,400 per month to stuff brochures into envelopes.

In turn to get the jobs, yet, applicants were told they had to pay a $40 refundable fee to receive their employment kit.

After paying the fee, applicants received nothing but only a pamphlet entitled Secret Home Employment Guide, which listed other fake work at home opportunities and how to promote them. Those applicants who asked for refunds were incapable to reach anyone with the company.
