Home Business SCAM!

Hello and thanks for visiting my blog! Today I want to talk about a home based business opportunity that I was unfortunate to be a victim of. What I write here is my own opinion and nobody else!

Before I get to the point of this post, let me give you some advice. DO NOT GIVE A PERSON YOUR BANK ACCOUNT NUMBER AND ROUTING NUMBER!!!! Make sure they have a secure website that you can put this valuable information on. I trusted a person and my account is closed! I was talking to a person about working from home and I gave them this information to get paid. I didn’t hear anything from them so I thought they didn’t want me to work with them. I went to check others out! (Legitimate work at home!)

I got an email from my bank that I need to call them. I was transferred to the security department where I was asked if I was expecting a direct deposit, I said yes. He asked how much, I told him $800. He said are you sure, I said of course, what’s this about? He said someone tried to deposit a check for $2800. I said no way! He told me they were closing my account and doing an investigation. That was over a month ago! They are still investigating and they are still holding my money!

The customer service department and the security department keep passing me back and forth. One says I need to talk to the other and vice-versa. I think they are just jerking me around so they can continue to make money on my money as long as it’s there. I will call tomorrow to see if they got the email with my Driver’s License copy in it. I know I gave this to them when I opened the account, just something else to hold my money.

Now to the main reason for this post! It started with me searching for different at home opportunities on Facebook. There are a lot of them and I did ask for information on some of them to read more.

This one was very interesting, it said if you can copy and paste, you can do this. So I ask for more info. The girl and I were chatting on messenger back and forth for a few days. She told me I would be placing ads for vacation rentals on Craigslist. Sounded great and I would be paid $200 per week, even better.

This was one of the first conversations I had with Gracey. This shows her picture, so keep an eye out. She has probably changed it by now!

I was very happy doing this work. She and I would talk back and forth all day, every day. Except on Sunday, that was my day off. I would have Craigslist send her the finished product and she would send me the link to approve it. This set up was great. Periodically I would send her a screenshot of the list on Craigslist to show her I was doing my part.

I really enjoyed doing this kind of work.

She asked for my email address so she could send me the ads that I would post. Not a problem, she said she would send me 5 a day to post. So I started doing the post on Craigslist and we chatted through messenger on Facebook daily, all day. The emails from Craigslist would go to her and she would let me know via messenger. The ad she sent looked like just a letter! And after I was finished posting it looked like a professional ad!

In the beginning, Craigslist would remove a post and I couldn’t figure out why so she told me to post it in my area. I did and it was okay. This happened a few times in the beginning but I was able to re-post them. (Legitimate work at home!)

Okay so Thursday came around and I made the comment to her that tomorrow was my payday. And how excited I was to be paid for my work. She said she thought she told me that the pay is monthly. I looked through our chats and nothing was said about monthly payments. She apologized and said she has a lot of people to help and it must have slipped her mind. Okay, no problem I said and I would continue to work for the month.

We continued working for the next couple of weeks and the third week she said she was going to try to get me paid early. I told her that would be great and I continued to work just waiting for her to tell me my money was in my account.

I had gotten to the point that I was pretty good at changing the header of the ad and I would pull the location up on Google Maps to find out where these places were to pinpoint their location.

So the beginning of the 4th week she told me she wasn’t able to get payment to me early. I said that was disappointing but it was okay. They pay 30 days after the first post so I really wasn’t expecting it.

Okay, payday is here! It was a Friday and I asked her about getting paid. She said she was working on it. I continued to work and she said to give her until Monday and she would get it sorted out.

I checked my bank account and there was a deposit of $2800 in it. Now, I know that wasn’t right so I asked her what it was for. She said that I was going to help her with payroll and that was the only way I could get paid to my Discover Savings account. I asked her if she was crazy?

Well, it ended up that the check that was deposited into my Savings account had been altered. HELLO!!! (Legitimate work from home!)

Please be aware of the scams that are out there and go into them expecting the worse and hopefully they will be better. I’m not saying that all home business opportunities are SCAMS there are a few that are not, just be careful and don’t give information that you are not comfortable giving.

Her name is Gracey Mash, she states she has been working for International Real Estate since 2014 and she lives in Bedford, NY. She also says she is going to New York University. I have some of her email addresses: gracechristie23@gmail.com, dnhv.rentals12@gmail.com, Dnhv.rentals34@gmail.com, and dnhvrentals@gmail.com. And this is really bad if this company really does exist and she is using it to make false promises and basically lying all the way. I keep saying she, but as far as I know this could be a man, not sure. And she hasn’t posted anything to her home page on Facebook since Jan. 7th.

Please be aware of this scam you will not get paid. I am really disappointed with this person by giving me false hope in having a home-based job that I enjoyed doing. Shame on her/him!!! Oh, update! She/he deleted their Facebook page, but please be aware that they can use another name, profile picture and personal information! I just don’t want you getting caught up with this person!
