Habitat For Humanity SCAM!

This is so disturbing! Habitat For Humanity is a fantastic organization that does great work to help many people.
Some disgusting people are posing as representatives (read - FAKE) of Habitat For Humanity, even going to the lengths of using real looking HFH email addresses, and are scamming people. It is horrible that these people are scamming others, but it is absolutely repulsive that they are tarnishing the image of a great organization.

This is one of the emails that they have been sending to people:

Habitat For Humanity

Work With Us(Part Time Job)
hide details Nov 3 (4 days ago)

Hello Prospective Employee,

At HABITAT FOR HUMANITY, We work hard to improve and provide training, technical expertise and support in fund-raising to the national organizations in all the regions of the world. However, the actual work of HABITAT is carried out at the community level by affiliates that have been officially approved by the HFHI Board of Directors. The International Board of Directors (IBOD) are volunteers from around the world who share a deep concern for the problems of poverty housing.

You've got a chance to be one of our representatives and earn a commission for funds raised.This Could earn you an average of $300-$500 weekly.
You can be rest assured that you WOULD NOT be required to pay any fees upfront and this won't affect your current job earnings or disability payments in any way and you can conveniently work from your desk at home.

Private donations will be made in your name from our esteemed Voluntary Donors in your region and you'll be allowed to deduct 10 percent (10%) of the total amount on these donations. This serves as your remuneration for the great service you would be rendering in support of saving lives in the third-world countries. Balances (after the 10%) shall be required to be forwarded to the Regional Co-ordinators of the various charitable projects we are involved in around the Globe.

Please Note: You won't have to do any traveling and WILL NOT be required to pay any fees, this position won't affect your present employment.

To apply, Kindly forward the following info: to our Human Resource Department at the email listed below for further instructions.

PHONE NUMBER (S) must be valid) would be called to confirm.

Habitat for Humanity

Notice the reply to email above? Just a gmail address. Figures. Red flag!

The note from a forum user that posted the scam:
They are possibly promoting themselves as Habitat for Humanity reps and soliciting for money. If you take this, they will have people write out checks to you. Please do not do this and if you received an email send it to Habitat for Humanity Government/Advocacy department at

By looking at this, it looks legit because of the "" email address. I'm not sure about this and can not explain it. But what I am sure about is that it is illegal to have donations written out to you personally on behalf of a non-profit organization. I tried calling the 1-800 number and it has been busy for 4 hours. I google'd the email address and found this on the email: Habitat for Humanity International - Anti-Fraud International.

I hope Habitat For Humanity will press charges against these scammers, and that justice will be served.

The latest SCAM? The 'Looking for a Cosigner' SCAM.

I have seen this scam on Cragslist, and on some Google searches. However, it really hit home when I saw someone posting it as a Work At Home type opportunity, on a Work At Home forum that I frequent.

The scam looks like this (or something very similar):

Subject: Looking for a COSIGNER - compensation $500+ per monthly

Hi Dears!
My name is:
I am 20 and I am a college student, who started a business. It is web directory - which specializes
in publishing and advertising. I did everything by myself - so if you need advice on how to get started - DBA, Business account - I may help.
So everything is going great - except one thing I was not ready for.
To accept payments online - ( to process Credit Cards)- you have to open a mrchant account. I have a problem doing that as i need a strong cosigner with an excellent credit history. I am in despair - because I have lot's of clients - and can't accept payments.
At the same time I have to pay to technical department and stuff.
Your credit will not be at risk at all - as I am the owner. I will pay you 10% of my month revenue - right now it is $500 - but my business is growing fast.I will disclose all pertinent information about me (i.e. address, business name, etc.) so you can at least know I'm not keeping anything from you and am trustworthy
I want to earn your trust. If you are open to what I have just expressed, please reply so we can discuss further.

Thank you

As with many scams, there are consistent spelling and grammatical errors. Red flag!
The scammer is trying to get your personal and bank information. With this info, they will likely try to hack into your account, steal money or your identity (which is a Felony, BTW).

If you see an email, forum post, etc., report it to the carrier or forum, accordingly.

Watch out for the SCAMS!

Freelance Writing, anyone?

I have wanted to start writing, for a while. Guess I just lacked the confidence to go for it.
Well, today that changed. I have been working with a particular person, on some projects for a couple of months. Today that person asked me to write an article. I did it! I am officially a published writer! Wow!
So, if I can do it - you can do it, too!
For those wanting to get into writing, I say just go for it - give it a try. You may surprise yourself.
For those of you that are experienced writers, or looking for more writing work, I am going to start posting writing jobs. I know I am looking forward to writing more often!

Wishing you all success!

Panda Research Scam

Here we go again - yet another scam.

Panda research is a survey site. Now, there are many legitimate survey sites, but Panda Research is not one of them.
Panda research offers surveys where you can earn from $3 to $75 each, and also offers email / ad reading for $0.03 to $0.25 each.

So where's the scam? You have to pay / buy one of the offers on the site, in order to claim your money.
Based on research, and forum posts from people that have been scammed by Panda Research, some people did buy the offers to try and get paid. They never got paid, and emails sent to the company went unanswered.

You should NEVER have to pay for a job. If they want your money - they are scammers.

Avoid the scams!

Changes at is no longer hiring Shopping Guides to answer shopping questions. They have chosen to go to an all Community Member based answering system. I understand why the change was made - it was just good business for them.
For the Shopping Guides that were working for (I haven't answered questions for a while. Got burned out, and was busy on other projects), it is a definite bummer. The Shopping Guides were guaranteed pay for each question answered, whereas the Community Members compete for Best Answer (worth $1.00), and any tips the person asking the question is offering.
With that said, there is still money to be made. So, give good answers and win Best Answer!
If you have a shopping question, are looking for a particular product, or the best deal, visit and ask. It's a great website!

Burn Your To Do List - SCAM - Beware!

A WAHM from a forum I belong to, posted this warning about Burn Your To Do List:

Hello everyone,

I am so sorry that I have to come in and give anyone bad news about a company, but I wanted to make sure no other WAHM have to go through the hell I have gone through the last month at my now former job at Burn Your To Do List.

I started working at BYTDL 10 months ago for a very small amount of money (2.00 per article), and within a few months I was promoted to support staff, and subsequently promoted 2 more times to a management position.

As I became more and more involved in the inner workings of BYTDL, I started noticing dirty dealings being done on customers.
They had some policy's that I highly disagreed with, and it was becoming apparent to me that BYTDL scams customers out of money by trapping them into subscriptions.
This was not sitting well with me at all as I was raised to be an honest woman.

I stayed with BYTDL because it was up for sale and I thought maybe a new owner would turn things around as the former owner, Rachel Rofe, wanted to move on to other things.
BYTDL sold in mid-Sept, and I am sorry to say that the new owner, Joe Harkins, is well, not a nice person to deal with.

Over the past 3 weeks I have seen him:

1.Change terms of service without notifying any customers. He sent out an email with no previous warnings and changed the subscription terms and rates of older clients. He did not even have the nerve to sign it with a name, but instead signed it a generic "the BYTDL support team"

2. Has logged into his employees accounts (including mine) and pretended to be them and replied to clients and providers.

3. Called several employees (who have now all quit)and belittled them, (and in some cases flat out lied about them), and borderlines on being verbally abusive.

I handed in my resignation after he called me and spent over 2 hours telling me basically what a crappy manager i am.
I was approached by the former owner, Rachel and she (very nicely) asked me to stay and train a new manager they hired.
I agreed and spent the last week training her and doing my usual work.
I have 4 days worth of skype conversations to prove that I was on all day and made training videos for her.
This was along side doing my normal work, and putting in 9-10 hour days all week.

When Sunday rolled around, (which is payday), I was to train the new lady on how to do payroll. She never showed up. I waited for 10 hours for her to log on to skype.
Several of my friends and co-workers can verify this as they were on all day with me waiting and keeping me company.

When it became apparent that she was not going to log on, I did payroll and sent the files to Rachel (who had been acting as a mediator with me and the new owner).
Payroll subsequently did get done and my friends who work there did get paid.
I, however did not get paid.
They now owe me 600.00 for my last week of work which I doubt I will ever see.

I did not come here to whine, I can and will survive without that 600.00 but my main concern is for anyone else who might be considering working for this company.
It was bad enough that it happened to me, but I do not want to see anyone else get sucked into this scam of a job.

Avoid this place at all cost! They treat employees like garbage and all of their senior staff have left because of it.
They also treat clients very poorly, and are ripping them off.
It will only be a matter of time before they go under due to shady business practices.

I am sorry that it had to come to this, I have always been more of a lurker than a poster, but I felt in this case, everyone needs to know what type of business BYTDL (Burn your to do list) has become.
I had defended them in the past, but they are not worth working for anymore, and it is very sad because it was a great place to work at one time.

Again, I am sorry for this post, but I could not let anyone be put through the same situation as I was.

Since posting this, several people have contacted her saying that they had a similar experience. So sad that this 'company' is taking advantage of good, hard working people.

*UPDATE* 16.Oct.2010
This was posted(on the same forum where the first post is from) by a former manager at the company (she left when things took a turn for the worse):
We now have solid proof that the new owner is slandering former employees with outright lies.
Still not been paid and not sure if anyone else was either.

Avoid any ads for 'Burn Your To Do List'.
