FIB - Scams 101 and $25/hour.

>> I am new here and I am pretty new to chat rooms.

Just a little correction. FIB is not a chat room, it's a forum. More specifically, it's a bulletin board. Chat rooms are those types of sites where you talk to people in real-time.

>> enough $ for the time & effort.

If you work 40 PER MONTH and make $1000 for that 40 hours of work, that works out to be $25 PER HOUR (and $12K per year). I don't know about the area where you live nor do I know anything about what you are used to making, but many people in the USA would be tickled pink if they could make $25 PER HOUR. Even half that is more than some ever dream of making. If a person could work 40 a week at $25 per hour, that would work out to be $4K per month and $48K per year. Are you sure that $25 PER HOUR is not worth your time, even if you only work 40 PER MONTH?

>>Is anyone familiar to
>> (formerly willowcsn)? Any advice?

I don't know anything about A quick look at their site makes me think they provide customer service, tech support, tele-sales and similar services to businesses who hire them and outsource that sort of stuff. If that is the case, then they may be legit as I have heard there are legit companies out there that do offer these services and hire people to work from home. Whether or not is one of these legit companies, I have no idea. Where and how did you hear about them? I will say that most if not all work at home jobs like tele-sale, customer service, etc. don't generally pay more than $7-$10 per hour, usually. So $25/hour is WAY more than anyone else pays for that type of work and not very realistic. So if this company claims to pay $25 per hour, do some real investigating and do not pay them a dime to employ you. If you do have to pay them money to be employed with them, it's most likely a scam.

>> I really really want to stay at home and
>> I have not been able to find a job anyway.

Get in line. There are tens of thousands of Americans alone (if not hundreds of thousands) looking for work-at-home employment.

Just a little advice to you. If you truly want/need to work from home then you can't be picky and you have to be flexible with everything, including what you get paid and the types of jobs you have to perform. There are so few legit work at home jobs out there that are advertised to the general public and the second you become picky you shut yourself out of actually finding any work at home employment at all.

I may do some investigating on today if I have time and report back to you.

(you know who you are... you scream "Foul!" when the truth comes out)
        PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT.  It has been done before, but never successfully.  In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
        If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
        NEWS FLASH:  I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday.  I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish.  I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?).  I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!" 
        Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

        Although we may, from time to time, monitor or review discussions, postings and the like on the Friends In Business (Scams 101) Message Board, we are under no obligation to do so.  We are not responsible or liable for any claim arising from the content of any such discussions or postings or for any error, defamation, libel, slander, omission, falsehood, obscenity, pornography, profanity, danger, or inaccuracy contained in any information contained within such locations on the Site.

        In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
        And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
