This blog is meant to help you determine which work at home job or program is for you. I am not making any determinations on whether or not a particular program is a scam. I am simply giving you the information to make that call for yourself.

Real job or scam?

This was asked on a website about this company and there job:

Here is a brief description of the job in case the link doesn't work:

        This job will allow you to:

  • Work efficiently from home;

  • Increase available personal time

  • Achieve financial independence in half the normal time (1-3 hours per day)

  • Develop high self-respect and esteem.

What exactly will I do?

  You will work as a Financial Agent, meaning you will perform e-currency exchange operations, communicate with other agents to facilitate the process, fund closed transactions, receive other funds collected at closing and disburse all proceeds to appropriate parties.
  Our employees hired for this job assure the foundation of our business and that is speed and reliability in dealing with our clients money and delivering a highly respected service in our branch.
  You will work 1-4 hours a day in your area, depending on how many tasks are assigned to you.

Now if you were able to visit the website you will notice that the "job" is very well publicized.   Everything is about the "job".. although there is a little about the services they offer..  Plus there is a news blurb from November 07 about a job opening. 

The first thing that screams "run!" at you should be that they want you to open a bank account.   Then if you read between the lines you will see that this sounds just like a fancy way of saying "payment processor".... bad bad bad..

I decided to dig a little deeper and ran a whois on the site as well.. look what comes up:

   Registrar: ENOM, INC.
   Whois Server:
   Referral URL:
   Name Server: NS1.DNSPNET.BIZ
   Name Server: NS2.DNSPNET.BIZ
   Status: clientTransferProhibited
   Updated Date: 19-mar-2008
   Creation Date: 17-mar-2008
   Expiration Date: 17-mar-2009

Shame shame shame.....
