Beware Of People Fishing For Your Details.


I Got sent a mail by a friend, with a link to a page, about being able to work from home and being able to easily earn 5,000 to 7,000 per month.

Did not like it at all, it rang alarm bells, it seemed gto be a dodgy mail, there are no details of the work just of the money you could earn.
No details of the website and what they do, just a heart warming story about someone called Natasha Reynolds who lived in Amsterdam with a couple of young children,  she supposedly had a blog.

Which I could not find, did find a Natasha Reynolds who lives in Canada and went on a fishing trip, but no mention of her working from home and earning well.

Basically it is just a link to fill in their form, which give them all your details including your bank account, for your ‘’wages’’.

This is as far as I am concerned, just another fishing trip to be avoided at all costs, I had one recently just when I was thinking how much I still wished I could work.

The next day got a mail offering me 5,000 per month, I  saw right away that the spelling and grammar were bad plus they were using a hotmail address.

Still it got to me especially because I would love to work even now, even in my condition, think a lot of people would love to work too.

Hate people trying to use people’s vulnerabilities, work is always a good lure for us all.

Be very careful there are alot of these fake jobs around especially now times are hard.

So beware of strangers offering you so much, for your details, do not give them to any one not ever.

Sadly I could not add the link because when I responded to the original mail. my mail program would not send it and then froze and my virus checker deleted the mail.

Well, good work of your virus protection software! We should all be wary of offers that sound too good to be true, because they usually are. I'm glad that you were not "taken." Bit the Herrad I know you to be is too smart for that!

Yes Herrad, there are a lot of scams on the net. It's good to be aware of them.

Hi Webster,
Easy to get taken in even me and it did work for too, emotionally anyway as I would love to work.

Hi Karen
You are right there are many scams now,

Thanks to you dear friends for coming by.
We all have to be aware of scams.

Never give out personal details - and especially bank information! No one reputable would ever ask about personal banking info.
