I almost fell for it until I read two people's background stories. They had the same story. Both worked for a pipe manufacturing place and before that they were working for a mortgage lender, also had the same picture of their google check. So it has to be a scam. By the way, forget contacting google there is no customer service email to ask them if this is a scam.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||maxbill||3/23/09 2:21 AM|
Do you have any more information on this scam? any links leading to the story? I can do a post on this if you want.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||chargers||3/24/09 5:52 AM|
just punch up google starter kit in google
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||maxbill||3/24/09 6:57 AM|
Yeh i came across a few links that weren't very frothcoming, the links were from Australian users saying how they got ripped off. Couldn't find anything else about the actual culprit though!
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||maxbill||3/24/09 7:04 AM|
This link http://www.marketinghub.info/google-home-business-kit-free-trial/?t202id=248&t202kw=google%20kit really dosen't help a lot.
I think for total newbies it is no hoper, there's no obvious information about the product. The landing page is nice and shiny, but i guess people will
allways get sucked into this type of scam. I wouldn't touch it with a barge poll!

This info really should be on Google's home page to alert people from being scammed. But there are 5,000 dept.'s to go through to alert them.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||maxbill||3/24/09 2:33 PM|
Wow! The mind boggles, Google is such a pain when it comes to proper support> It seems to be their whole ethos, relying on people to interact and do the hard work for them. Your right about Google taking more responsibility, I guess they are more concerned about making profit than giving up valuable real estate to warn people.
Thanks for your input

Bad scam is bad
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||toadtester||4/3/09 3:08 AM|
when you go to sign up, read a small print on their site. It is $1.95 to go in, but after 7 days they automatically charge you $70+ per month. The $70+ is not mentioned anywhere in the main ad, so they would catch anybody who is not reading small print. Only way to cancel subscription is through postal mail address, so they can claim that letter was delayed etc.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||lushking||4/3/09 7:29 AM|
I wondered about this too. Made to sound very user friendly and immediate so less incentive to dig deeper. Various sites found when doing a search of kevinlifeblog turns up no site for kevinlifeblog.com. But there are various other sites which look to verify it, including a virtual stock site which shows stock in the company going from 0$ per share two weeks ago, to over $1900 per share, today Apr 3. So it draws you in and gets you excited. But having now found this page I too believe it's a scam. The hidden $70/month fee mentioned elsewhere in these replies is a definite red flag. Bottom line: don't do it. You'll be sorry.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||revelationsgifts||4/3/09 12:15 PM|
I was almost sucked into this also...and like Charger and Zephyr199 mentioned above the stories and check pics are the same on the pages they just change the names (that's what caught my attention)..I emailed and left comments on the two websites I found and they never did reply, when I checked the website to see if they replied to my comments (regarding the monthly fee) they had deleted it. That certainly set up the red flags....it's a scam.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||Brummell76||4/3/09 5:45 PM|
For those that added https://www.securecartcenter.com/NzU5M3wxODIyfDI2NzQ4M3x2Mg==/rxfum4b9/g
Its not a scam. Just a few hidden extra fee's. There is a 1 (888) number that is below in text after it reads in small all the big hidden fee's. I called. The work from home google part? I cant say. This has Google all over.

if cheque is the same in two different sites, one can safely assume that all the used photos are fakes, i.e. they are not showing either Kevin nor Scott.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||dixiejharvey||4/12/09 10:49 AM|
Are you all saying there is no work at home programs for google and they are all scams???? If not which arent???
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||scariot||4/27/09 11:27 AM|
The Google ads are WITHOUT A DOUBT SCAMS!! Read the fine print one of them says"I DON'T WORK FOR GOOGLE NOR ARE THEY AFFILIATED WITH ME" yet they show a check from Google? This is a Classic MLM or Ponzi type scam. I didn't pay but I figure it works like this , you post the same links to buy the program like everyone else and you get paid from the JACK on your credit card every month, like all the postings say its the same ad and same check.But remeber they pay for these links on espn and such so much per click from .25-2.00 so I figure to click a hundred plus per day everyone should do it so they feel like they are getting scamed...

Jobs: Is Working Online At Home The Next Gold Rush?
Posted by Scott on Tuesday, 6/3/2009 and filed under Finance. You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2.0. You can leave a response or trackback to this entry from your site
Many sites showcase people making as much as $300 a day working online from home on their computer.
By Scott C. Baker
Are online jobs the next big thing? For Mary Steadman it sure is. Mary, a mother from Phoenix, AZ is thriving, in the middle of an economic recession working in the comfort of her own home.
From her website: "I get paid about $25 for every link I post on Google and I get paid every week... I make around $5500 a month right now"
Mary's story is a very familiar one in these tough times. She lost her job as an account rep for a manufacturing company and a few days later her husband also was laid off from his job as part of cutbacks due to the bad economy.
"We knew we had to do something, so we put our heads together and started trying online job opporuntities." Mary and her husband Kevin wound up getting caught up in a few get rich quick business opportunities that were nothing more than pyramid schemes before finding something that really worked.
"I realized the best thing to do is instead of hoping that a company that you are looking at is going last, why not go with a big, reputable company. After looking at several different companies, I picked the safest bet... Google!"
Online giant Google is a publicly traded company and is worth an estimated $100 Billion (with a b). The company has pioneered online search and has changed the way we use the internet.
In a matter of weeks Mary and David had a steady stream of income coming in via checks that were delivered to their home. They happened upon a system called " Google Starter Kit" that taught them how to make money posting links online.
Google Starter Kit is a free course that can teach anyone, regardless of computer skill level to start making money online. It's available for free at Google Starter Kit.
"We were doing pretty good and then we discovered the real trick to making money. We combined " Google Starter Kit " with another free course called "Google Speedy Cash " that's where we really learned the extra tricks so instead of making a couple of hundred bucks here and there we started maximizing the amount we made."
For those of you that have seen the 'scammy' sites on the internet that promise you can make millions of dollars online Mary warns that this is not the promise being made here and that most of those sites are false representations of earnings you can make.
"We never tell anyone they'll make millions of dollars, in fact I think this is the ONLY online system that says you probably WON'T get rich overnight, but you can generate a legitimate income from home like I do that replaced my full time job."
Getting started is simple. Following these simple steps below is all you need to do to get started.
Step 1: Get Google Starter Kit

|Re: the google work at home starter kit||divagirl||6/4/09 8:05 AM|
Went thro the same above website and was almost about to be scammed. Was wondering what is the job to get paid? Finally found out that it is a scam and saved myself. Thanks for opening my eyes.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||holacomoestas||6/8/09 6:19 AM|
hi all, thanks so much for your info,Im a nebee on this stuff, I am real scared now I actually fell right in after I read that article, I cant beleive a newspaper would post an article about a scam. I also cant believe Google itself wont have warnings baout these thing on their sites I think they are part of by not informing the public they are promoting it indirectly!!
So I went and clicked on the links and gave my credit cards, 3 of them cause they were all declined even thought they are not! I could not understand why would they show "declined"... so now I dont know if they stole my personal info, or if just by being in Europe they would not go through and thus I am saved... I hope this is the case. does anyone out there know what could have happened? or does anyone who actually fell for it and got charged their credit cards can tell me if they got confirmation of signing up once they did it?
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||glennthepower||6/8/09 2:15 PM|
It looks like they're now calling it Google Money Master. All of the above comments/experiences sound extremely familiar having just nearly signed up for it.....but yes it did sound too good to be true but it did sound like and look like a google product. Until I did a search - initially all very positive about it but dig deeper and you find the real stories. I followed a link from facebook:- https://www.6ftoverhead.com/ODU5N3wyMjYzfDMxNTk2Mnx2Mg==/bqe1n4b9/g so clearly not a google URL. I'm delighted to say that I didn't sign up, although very nearly did.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||noraloveira||6/11/09 1:33 PM|

Me estan enviando un e-mail de trabajo para google desde casa aqui les pego el link, Quiero saber si esta pagina NO es fraudulenta.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||noraloveira||6/11/09 1:35 PM|
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||iluvlatinas||6/11/09 10:15 PM|
I started filling out the info, but decided to search further. So tired of scams! Well turns out it does have most of the warning signs of scam. The fake blogs have ads that mimic adsense ads and they all go to the same place. Whois is all cloaked no matter what site you check out. Nothing wrong with cloaking because it helps with twitter if you use several accounts, but not every site is going to know how to do that.
So save your money. Build a site with something that people will buy. Then send traffic to it. I sell twitter management and following software. Twitter hates it but tough. I started making money selling 2 good products the day after I started. And the twitter traffic is free. I have not ben successful at all with adsense or adwords. The cost of adwords for significant traffic is just too cost-prohibitive for me to make real profit.
Hope this helpsilu...@roadrunner.com if you have any questions
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||micstar||6/20/09 11:28 AM|
well, here's another one - Mitch Jackson - that we can add to the list
Only wish I read this before spending the $1.95 for info. Been on hold with the 24/7 support toll free number listed to cancel now for over 1/2 an hour and still no answer.
I was looking for a way of supplementing my own legitimate work from home business during the ebb and tide. It's not only unfortunate that these people are taking advantage of people looking to make some extra income during the economic difficulties but also for the legimate work from home programs to get thru to people, most are skeptical. What has our work ethic come to...greed? Shame on them, how do they sleep at night?
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||micstar||6/20/09 11:33 AM|
omg, just got thru to someone at the toll free nbr and they offered me a free vacation!!!!!
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||NativeSonKY||6/22/09 7:58 AM|
Well, the same "Mary Steadman" as listed above as being from Arizona, was also the exact same name and story, except she was located in Lexington KY, which just happens to be a city VERY close to my Zip Code :-( Fortunately I DID look all the way down at the bottom of the page and read the small print that said "This site is in no way affiliated with Google.com" and that's when I stopped. I feel sorry for the people who get scammed like this, at a time when NONE of us can afford it. I have been on unemployment from the Printing Industry for almost 9 months, and sure could have used the income. I'd love to get off the "Government Tit" and was hoping this was the ticket. Fortunately I'm going back to school in August (at age 50!) to learn Medical Transcription and Coding - maybe that occupation will last until I type my last keystroke...I hope!
Good Luck All & Sorry to those who got scammed. Your state Attorney General office would be the next folks to call, after you get that vacation!!
John in Kentucky
P.S. Don't you hate the way they can even track WHERE you are from and "custom make-up" a story for you to suck you in more? The Steadmans weren't even in the phone book LOL!!

|Re: the google work at home starter kit||rola1280||7/10/09 6:43 AM|
It is a huge scam, and to tell you the truth very well thought. I just received this link from my sister
it looks just like an article from a newspaper, but I am a web designer and just right away I could tell it was a scam. These are signs that you need to look at before going clicking and giving your credit card to some site because you think its a legit article from a known newspaper ( this newspaper the new york tribune did exist that is why it might sound familiar but it was closed on 1967)
1. Check the main domain - for example www.the-newyork-tribune.com before the / that would be the index page of the site where you would get all the headlines of this "newspaper" what you get? you get the same scam page
2. There is no navigation - if this is a legit newspaper how do I see other finance articles
3 it doesnt matter where I click if I click on the pictures it would always send me to the - google kit store page
4. The funniest think is that the post is "closed" due to spam posts
Be careful, you can make money using adsense from google, however that is posting on your site as a webmaster. I am a webmaster and we dont pay google to add adds on our pages, we need to do it ourselves, I am not sure if big companies would pay for it, but why google would pay random people to just post adds somewhere. There is NEVER easy money, if this was the case all of us would be millionaires by now
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||Araaon||7/10/09 1:10 PM|
Well guys here is yet another. I am quite tht through when looking through things like this and was one click away from ruining a great friendship as we were going to do it together. This scam page was worked quite well, they even have a reply board up with people saying how well they are doing with someone pointing to their computer screen, logged into a google site showing their "earnings".
Looking back Here is the best way to figure out the google scams,
apply for a job working from home for Google here are the three steps:
Step 1: Get the Google Work From Home Kit, only pay the $2.95 for shipping. (The shipping cost allows Google to screen for serious people).
Step 2: Follow the directions on your package and set up a Google account. Then they will give you the website links to post. Start posting those links. Google tracks everything.
Step 3: Google will send out your checks weekly. Or you can start to have them wire directly into your checking account. (Your first checks will be about $750 to $1,500 a week. Then it goes up from there. Depends on how many links you posted online.)
Now when you click the link to create the Google account, you DO NOT go to a Google page, you go to the scammers page! hmmmm could be bad!
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||Araaon||7/10/09 1:13 PM|
P.S. yes there are typos in my post, but i am quite gramaticaly correct. So are your Journalists and news papers, they have to be. Look for their errors ;-)
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||DennisJS||7/13/09 7:32 AM|
This is a total SCAM. Make sure you click on and read the terms of service before you give them your credit card number, after 6 days they are going to charge your card $89 and then $49 a month there after so buyer beware. The only way to make any money is to get some other sap to give you their card number.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||maurii||7/15/09 6:39 PM|
now Im really worried.... I gave them my credit card number.... How can I stop them from getting all that other money...
shit... I hate this scams
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||zathrus||7/17/09 3:23 PM|
Could google PLEASE sue anybody who posts this crap on their website? particularly "the new york tribune"?
Article links to https://secure3.profitcenterlearning.com/gord/?offer=go_13_hg&hg=61468&id1=[=SUBID=]&id2=[OPTINFO]&session-id=038f3a9beec8ce623756746aa386d40e which should be mailed a cease and desist letter as well.
Sadly I think a lot more people are going to be fooled by this one before it's over. Especially in the current more desperate economic climate.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||Mar08||7/19/09 3:42 PM|
Know I thought that I was a pretty savy internet user and consider myself to be a very cautious when it come to surfing the net but this one...really got me! And not only that I think I clicked on the newspaper link I think even AFTER I scrolled down to the end of the page and so the not affiliated with Google disclaimer!! I need to stay on top of things!! But I was fortunate enough not to enter my credit card info.
Now, I know that times are rough and we are looking for some what of an easy solution but the bottom line is that no matter what you do it requires WORK! My pastor calls says to some people this is a 4-letter curse word! But anyway, I am just like you all trying to find a way to make money and work from home and I have been a part of MANY, MANY networking marketing companies and I have to admit that I am attracted to them!! I am ok with that though! Because really at the end of the day its about finding the one that works. So if you are interested and I mean no disrespect by posting this here, visit www.opportunitylanes.com. This is a very safe site. Its a really cheap MLM that business owners like myself can use on their own websites as well as being able to use it on facebook and myspace and bebo. Its a really great tool and its cheap!! Once you join I'll reach out to you and we can chat.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||gabrielsetis||7/20/09 8:15 AM|
Yeh, mine came from a news website, it had "as seen on tv", about 2000 posters with different names, and the city was tulsa oklahoma instead of phoenix.
MAN you have to admit, they are getting smarter with scams. --- posing as News Websites, saying they went on TV?? The site looked legit too! Oh yeh, same Mary too, $5500, lost her job, manufacturer, blah blah blah.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||gabrielsetis||7/20/09 8:18 AM|
Oh yeh if you read the fine print in their little payment terms box below the sign up (don't click instant access or sign up, unless you want to get scammed), they charge $77, 7 days later if you don't cancel.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||freedomlass||7/20/09 9:00 AM|
I really wish I had seen this before as I am one of those that has been scammed, I did this about a month ago thinking the minimal charge for the info was all I would get as I never got any sort of confirmation and never took it further, it was only today when I got my credit card statement that I found out, I even spoke to them on the phone via the c/c company I now feel so stupid for having falling for it as I am usually so careful, they did tell me that I would get a partial refund on the latest payment but not the first as it was more than 30 days ago, but only just. If Google themselves are aware of this then they should be able to help as it is abusing their name, as for me I wouldn't trust anything associated with Google not even Google themselves.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||cschultheis7||7/21/09 7:57 AM|
This is definitely a scam. I signed up for the "free" google starter kit, for $1.97 shipping and never received anything, plus they didn't even charge my credit card with the 1.97. But a few months later we noticed all these weird charges on our credit card from Grant Masters, Grant Finders, EAuctionlab, and Product Resources that totaled up to about $200 a month. They all had 800 numbers behind them and when I started calling, you can cancel the accounts, but they wouldn't refund your money cause its "out of range". Evidentally there is a 7 day return on these products, which they never send you. I am trying like heck to find a way to get these refunded. I think my credit card company will do it, but the only thing right now is to cancel the credit card immediately and get a new one.
I would really appreciate any information on this or how to go after these people. The charge that was on my card today was refunded, but the credit card company said it was from Egypt.
I am currently unemployed, and it really sucks that they go after us. My husband thought it would be a great opportunity for me to work from home, since I can't find information technology work around here, yea, they are sending it all over to India and Pakistan and Egypt so they can scam us all!
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||FireSign||7/22/09 5:27 AM|
Aww that sucks..
Google should take them to court or something for impersonation or something... Thats just cruel, targetting the unemployed to get their money.. Who does that anyways omg their so dumb..
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||jackbros||7/22/09 4:27 PM|
Hi everybody, google work from home kit is 200% scam and ripp off. Initial fee, though below 2 dollar, when collected from 100,000 innocent victims online, they collect a great fortune. I tried putting some fake zip on the forms and tried to chat online with supposedly customer service, they were hell bent on selling it forcefully. Don't fall for it. Shame on Google for not alerting the users.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||Common-sense||7/23/09 7:36 AM|
Oh come on! There are a few little clues here:
1. The New York Tribune was an American newspaper, first established by Horace Greeley in 1841, which was long considered one of the leading newspapers in the United States. In 1924 it was merged with the New York Herald to form the New York Herald Tribune, which ceased publication in 1967...
2. A "new" New York Tribune debuted in 1983 in New York City. The paper, which later changed its name to The New York City Tribune, was published by News World Communications, Inc., owned by the Unification Church. It was published out of the former Tiffany building at 401 Fifth Avenue until it printed its last edition on January 3, 1991...
3. The web site claiming to be a newspaper site <a href="http://the-newyork-tribune.com/">has no index page!</a>
4. This looks just like every other get rich quick scheme out there.
Just think about it for a microsecond: If it seems too good to be true... It is.

I dont know what good phoning my bank in the morning will be.. what a mess this feels!!
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||suke||7/28/09 10:06 AM|
Don't know where this pop up came from today - http://the-newyork-tribune.com/finance/google-now-hiring-in-the-uk.html But bearing in mind the New York Tribune ceased publication in 1967 it was evident it was a scam!
It looks as though it's legit though but if something looks to be too good to be true it normally is! Just beware of even more legit looking posts.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||marleydarlin||7/28/09 4:51 PM|
YES SCAM. They do charge you 1.99 then they GO RIGHT BACK INTO YOUR ACCOUNT 5 days later and take out 72$. We fought with our bank and google to get it back. We had record on tape that we asked if they would ever charge the card again ( we asked before the 1.99 transaction) = they said 'no'.
I am sure a lot of people do not catch the second charge to their account. As sure as I am that hardly anyone will get a refund back like we did- we fought with these people for literally hours on the phone.
Hope this help someone else not get scammed. I guess I am not the only one who has fallen for this.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||coolsmoke||7/29/09 6:30 AM|
If the real Google website has no reference whatsoever to a product claiming to be theirs (which the Google website doesn't. Anywhere), then it isn't Google's product. This is a fairly typical Internet scam riding on the back of a well-known and respected breand name.
I've no doubt Google themselves are looking into this and other parasitic money-making schemes.
Just remember the Golden Rule: If it looks too good to be true, it is!
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||dbahen||7/31/09 9:37 AM|
This is, most likely, a scam, where they are asking for your credit card number. DO NOT GIVE IT TO THEM! Check out the following story on Snopes, for additional backgrond information.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||ThorsFoundry||8/1/09 6:06 AM|
Google's page for contact info is http://www.google.com/intl/en/contact/
Yes, They SHOULD put up a thing on their home page! (If not for any other reason than to lessen their emails "warning"them about scams like this that are using their good name..)
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||anonymous_poster||8/1/09 9:22 AM|
I would definitely define this as a scam. Submit the form, and you'll lose over $80 in the first month alone.
Like the other people say, READ THE FINE PRINT (a copy of the fine print and the costs are below). The site is not related to Google at all. Plus, Mary Steadman sure does move around a lot!
On this page, it says you will be charged $2.95 delivery fee (refundable), then $59.95/month for the google search. You will also be enrolled in a 14 day "free" trial to a fraud protection ($6.95./month), and a 21 day "free" trial for identify theft protection ($9.95/month). You have to cancel the Google search within 3 days to get your "Delivery Fee" refunded. You have to cancel the fraud protection (at a different number) within 14 days. You have to cancel the identity theft protection (at still another site) within 21 days. No matter if you cancel or not, you will be charged a $1.00 "Delivery Fee" for each of the additional services, which is not refundable.
Initial costs $2.95 + $1.00 + $1.00 ($2.95 is refundable in first 3 days, $2.00 is not refundable).
Ongoing monthly expenses: $59.95 + $6.95 + $9.95 = $76.85.

To those of you who unfortunately fell for this, see snopes.com at http://www.snopes.com/fraud/employment/google.asp. This is unfortunately a scam as most of you already figured out. Snopes.com is a great website to search if you come across anything that sounds suspicious. They have usually researched the scam/topic before as these scams are usually perpetrated over and over.
If this scam charges your credit card account, you can contact your credit card company to dispute the charge. Your card company will usually remove the charge from your balance and will act as a liason between you and the company that charged your account. You will generally not have to pay the charge unless the dispute is settled in favor of the merchant/scammers. You can do this for any item charged on a credit card that you feel you should not pay or which was incorrectly charged, not just from scams. Obviously check with your card issuer for it's rules regarding disputed charges.
You may also want to talk to your credit card company about closing that card and opening another account with a different account number if you can't prevent the monthly charges from posting to your account. The credit card company can usually just transfer the balance to another account number, everything else will be the same. You would have to destroy your current card and wait until the credit card company issues you a replacement. I know they will do this for lost or stolen cards, they may be willing to do this for a customer who has been scammed. The scammers cannot charge your card if the old account is closed and they won't know your new number unless you tell them.
Good luck, I almost fell for this as well. Thankfully I came to this website first and then checked on snopes.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||cardine||8/4/09 9:19 PM|
Even though it is kind of a scam, they never do lie to you. I am involved in internet marketing, and I know people who first learned how to market based on the information that they received from one of these Google Kits (and he actually makes $7-8k each month from these techniques).
The information they give certainly isn't worth the $70/mo rebill, or the other shady marketing tactics, but to say that they don't provide what they promise is untrue. They will send you step by step information to make money with Google, and Google will actually be the people paying your checks. It uses a program called Google Adsense (go to google.com/adsense and you will see it is real).
It just isn't nearly as easy/pretty as the people promoting the site make it out to be.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||osodum||8/12/09 8:42 AM|
I still beleive it is not a scam
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||xxbabyblu3eyesxx||8/13/09 5:03 AM|
ok i admit i was dumb enouigh to buy into it and now i saw someone said there was a 70$ a month hidden fee....whhat do i do????!!!
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||msallwrld||8/13/09 11:47 AM|
I almost got sucked into this just today. I saw an add advertising this on craigslist. When I clicked on the link it took me directly to a newspaper site that spoke of someone by the name of "Olivia" who was making $15,500 a month. The story sounded very convincing so I clicked on the link on the newspaper site that took me to the actual page asking for my $1.97 to sign up. I read it in it's entirety and noticed at the bottom it stated that after the trial period they will charge your credit card, I think it was $70 or $80. I didn't do it because I figured it was a scam because this to me was way too much to have to pay. When I tried to log out a box popped up with a live online representative trying to get me to sign up for only $.99 instead of the $1.97 that they origianlly asked for. I closed that box and got off of that site quickly. I googled scams for the google work at home kits and found these posting. It's always good to google scams any time you think that something may be suspect. Hope this helps!!
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||bojosh||8/18/09 2:19 PM|
I clicked on the scam link right off the Google home page! "sponsored link" but it was positioned on the Google home page like it was an ad from them. I went back to Google to find more info from them about it and found this forum. <Glad I did!!>
It is a real shame that Google doesn't do anything about this scam, but to have it right on their home page is even more appaulling!!

|Re: the google work at home starter kit||eazy||8/24/09 6:08 PM|
Any offer that pressures you to sign immediately is a scam. I almost fell for this scam today, until that box popped up.I told the agent I needed to discuss with "wife" first before signing.The agent quickly reminded me that the offer might change when I checked back.That was the signal for me. I signed off immediately and googled "google works" surprisingly I could not trace the link.I looked at articles on google works scam and behold, I hit a jackpot.
One other way to recognize these scam sites is that they ask for your information immediately.If you do not end up signing with them, they still have your info which they will sell to 3rd parties. So beware before giving out your personal info online.
One of them was actually posted by Google distancing itself from these easy make money fast websites. Google recommends reporting these sites to them or to FTC or Internet Fraud Check.You can also report these sites to your state attorney or the FBI. Let the websites know that you are going to report them, if they do not refund your money.
Hope this helps.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||gypsymoon||8/24/09 9:40 PM|
I am curious on how you can say that this is a scam when if you actually read the fine print on the website it says that there will be a processing and handling charge to your credit card and then there will be a recurring charge of $70 if you don't cancel it. That's not a scam, that's just something that they are letting you know and if you don't read the fine print then its not their problem. If you are going to use your credit card online one would think that you are interested in knowing all the facts before you give out that number. If they tell you in fine print that there will be other charges then maybe you should be reading that before putting the charges on there. Just my opinion.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||cardine||8/24/09 9:51 PM|
As I stated before, nothing illegal is going on.
They send you a product that does tell you how to make money online. It teaches you how to create ads on Google, which if done properly, can make you millions of dollars. In addition it explicitly tells you about the rebill.
The trumped up claims and the small fine print might annoy you, but everything about these offers is completely kosher.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||Jaime||8/31/09 12:43 PM|
Hi all -- this thread has pretty well covered the topic of scams and how to avoid or report them, but since this seems to be such an active discussion, I wanted to link to a new resource. Google recently participated in Good Morning America's special report on these work-from-home scams -- you can find the video as well as a useful article on the ABC News site:
Thanks for looking out for one another.

|Re: the google work at home starter kit||MeanJean4||9/17/09 6:07 AM|
This is most definately a rip off. They charge a minimal amount for the information. Then some guys call to "start your business". When I told them, "please cancel", they didn't call anymore, but inspecting my charge card statement, I kept finding new charges that I have to try to get rid of. One of the companies told me that in small print, it told me about these charges and I could have avoided them by going over the small print. Guilty, I didn't go over the small print, but, the operator did tell me an email address for me that I have never heard before, and that is where they sent the warning about the charges. I will have to file a police report to get rid of those charges. My advice..... STAY AWAY. BTW, why can these scams happen, and our charge card companies don't have an alert to them? (In my opinion, you should be able to telll your charge card company not to accept charges from a certain company.)
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||saucy1578||9/19/09 8:10 AM|
Wow....I clicked on the link I was sent after I read all your comments and this is just amazing to me. The small print on the home page for the "Google " work from home kit is.....*Google™ does not endorse or sponsor this site and is in no way affiliated with Master Internet Profits....Wow.....Are you kidding me?????
And this is just a bunch of bull.......
and techniques mentioned, your finances, knowledge and various skills. Individuals have been remunerated.
I hope people don't fall for it.

Oh and this is the fine print.....Your 5 day trial membership costing you $1.95 will entitle you full access of the Site for 5 days starting on the day you submit your trial membership application to the Site.
4.2 You agree that if you do not send us notice of cancellation of your trial membership at least ONE DAY from the expiration of your trial membership term, we shall automatically and without further notice:

i was able to call a number 1 800 454 4891 for customer service and a person named anna has picked up and asked for my client id number and apparently it worked, is this an actual scam????? or is it just misunderstanding, because i cant figure it out, and im more on the scam side, but then again she was weird and was saying i was giving false info about my region of time when i asked her what time it was in hers but apparently she wouldnt tell me anything it was very odd...... first of all time doesnt matter.....

This Google Money thing stinks like a garbage dump. I saw two blog ads by "Kevin Hoeffer". However, the picture of "Kevin" was a different person in each ad. Plus, "Kevin's Story" was different in each ad. God, couldn't they at least make up a new name when they come out with a new ad.

|Re: the google work at home starter kit||AlmostScammed||10/8/09 5:33 AM|
Well, I almost got scammed by this Google Starter Kit. I signed up for it, said it was $1.95.... had no idea there was a $79 a month recurring fee, until I got my credit card bill for this past month. I couldn't remember purchasing anything at that price. The merchant line started out with an 1-877 number and so I called just to find out what I had purchased. Lo and behold, I had to call twice because the first time a recording came on stating someone would be right with me. The recording simply announced itself as, "welcome to customer service. all of our operators are busy right now but stay on the line... etc..." and then the line rang once and for about 8 minutes there was nothing, so I hung up and redialed again. This time I got someone and I asked what this charge was for and was told the "Google Starter Kit". I told them I had not ordered that and I would be calling my bank to contest the charge, which I did. About 2 minutes after I made the 1-877 call, I received an email stating that my membership had been canceled per my request. If you have been scammed, Google won't help you, there are no customer service people for Google. Just call this number 1-877-339-7489 and tell them the same thing I did. And then call your credit card company. Also, I just noticed on Craigslist the name of one of the scammers.... goes by Jon Lewis. Beware!!!
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||mbliss||10/8/09 8:28 PM|
Well, the offer caught my eye when it apeared as a pop up today, I guess it was the Google affiliation that made me take a second look. But it failed the too good to be true test for me, and when I took a look at the site, it just didnt have the graphic "signiture" of a genuine Google site. No way, my scaqm radar pegged. I bet it makes somebody some nice money though. Well planned and timely scam!
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||a fool||10/9/09 12:04 PM|
I am a fool, I have been scammed...Here is the new link for well planned scam...the link is at the bottom of the left side from this website...
How foolish I am, I should check out the info before I gave out my credit card info...
Now, I have to call my credit card company to report this incident and I hope this will help others staying away from this scam.... I learned my lesson!!!!!
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||96blackfan||10/13/09 11:51 AM|
well i was once scammed, about 10 yrs ago, that make my self more cautious after that.
whenever i found something that i have to give my info specially credit card i check the legitimacy of the company or person ofering
whatever it is I'm looking at and interested for. I did find the same ad and read about it, follow the link found that they say it's $1.95
for shipping but right after you give them some info they ask for your credit card and there's where people have to pay attention, because in
the fine print it say you are going to be charge a hole lot more than $1.95.
please be careful, and I don't thing Google has any responsibility on this since you can do the same but the Google user agreement states you're responsible
for any thing you post on the site. we are the ones responsible for doing more research on stuff like this. they make it look really attractive specially
in this economic time.

Look at how blatant these scams are with their lies, even claiming to quote Google!
"Google Now Hiring People To Work From Home
Google is Set To Hire A Group Of Americans To Work From Home In The Next Few Days. Thousands Of Jobs Available, Anyone Can Apply. "
"Google has now released a new "Work From Home Program" that will allow Americans to work for the titan from the comfort of their own homes."
"The way this works is very simple, Google says.
First you will need to apply for their work from home kits. Google has release a limited amount of kits, all distributed through local websites in your area, which will cost $2 of shipping and handling to the public. "
Come on Google - this has been going on for months now - why don't you sue out of existence these sites which abuse your brand like this?
You are allowing the trust in the Google brand name to be damaged by these affiliates of the cpa networks who create these flogs (fake news sites/blogs) full of lies.

These are the same scammers that sell you an info/access package for $1 and in the 6pt fine print TOS they'll be billing your card $40-80 each month unless you call their number (which they won't answer) for nothing more than a template builder. All of this is done unde the guise that they are somehow affiliated with Google and that their system is foolproof. If you see an ad that exclaims "Housewife from "YOUR_CITY" earns $2-300 a day with Google" <<<this is a trap
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||danielroofer||10/17/09 3:40 PM|
When i see a product/service etc on the web and it looks tempting i always do a few searches first to check what other ppl are saying about it, it also helps to add the word "scam" next to the search word or phrase - you can get to the truth pretty quickly that way.
post links for google scam shows up a ton of links suggesting its a scam see here:http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-GB%3Aofficial&hs=Plc&q=post+links+for+google+scam&aq=f&oq=&aqi=
google work from home scam is the same, see here:http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-GB%3Aofficial&hs=jSx&q=google+work+from+home+scam&aq=f&oq=&aqi=g1
google biz kit scam = http://www.google.com/search?q=google+biz+kit+scam&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-GB:official&client=firefox-a
I know this is old hat to most ppl but IMO if everyone did a search like this before they handed over credit card details then the number of ppl getting scammed would be reduced - some ppl hate Google for not coming down harder on scam sites but i think educating ppl about ways to use the search engine to research what they are getting into is a more practical way to protect themselves - not just from scams that use Googles name but all scams in general.
*tip* try doing a search on this forum for the word "scam" (this forum is indexed by Google too)

drouzy if you signed up for the online cash kit call 18664514235, I luckily found out before my 2 day free trial was over. The guy was not at all surprised that I wanted to cancel.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||proserv394||10/21/09 4:10 PM|
They probably will get your CC INFO and then charge it multiple times. that is usually what these scamers do!
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||chellero||10/22/09 5:43 AM|

|Re: the google work at home starter kit||templeisme||10/26/09 11:26 AM|
I fell for it and called my credit card company immediately after I made the purchase. They recommended calling the company and having the transaction cancelled. They also recommended getting a Cancellation # because that is the only recourse the credit card company has if it ends up not actually getting cancelled. Under Terms & Conditions there is a Customer Service # 877-340-4694. Mon-Fri 9am - 9pm EST. I held for 10 minutes. Told them I changed my mind. They asked why. I told them I read about it being a scam. He said it was not a scam but understood my concern. I told him I wanted to cancel it. He gave me a cancellation #. I then asked for a refund for my $1.97 and he gave me a Refund Confirmation # as well. The credit card company said if you end up writing a letter to cancel it make sure to send it with a "Proof of Return" which confirms it's delivery, and they can't say they never got the letter. Good luck!
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||kyguy05||10/28/09 4:55 PM|
I know Google doesn't pay people to work from home. But if you Google, "Work from home" the top sponsors in the right hand column are all pushing this idea that Google is paying people to post. These sponsors are paying a fortune to come up first in the search "work from home" and they are showing bogus checks you will receive from Google for $5000.00. I know they are paying a fortune to Google to be the top sponsors but you would think Google would look at this and not allow them to do this. Ive read that Google wants to stop these people. They are right there.

|Re: the google work at home starter kit||texasbornandbred||11/10/09 5:05 PM|
ABSOLUTELY DO NOT FALL INTO THIS!!! They will suck you in for a mere 99 cent charge. No big deal right? However with most "too good to be true" scams, there is a ton of fine print. Unless you are an attorney or have a lot of free time on your hands to read the crap, you'll miss the valuable part that explains that if you don't call a number that returns an incessant busy signal to cancel after 3 days of paying said 99 cents, they will begin charging your card $74.95 a month PLUS an additional international transaction fee PLUS $19.97 for a 3rd party service that you knew nothing about PLUS another international transaction fee for THEIR crap! Yeah, so $100 later (per month, mind you) you have fallen prey to a very profitable scam that isn't going to SEND you money.... oh no. They are going to TAKE yours! And the hits just keep on coming!!!
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||Lannae||11/12/09 8:00 AM|
YES IT IS A FRAUD!!!
When ever you have to PAY for something it usually is a fraud, you should NEVER have to pay for a job! This includeds shipping. Just like every corportion they do not hire anyone. You send in your resume, then either interview, or video conference. They don't just hire anyone who submits. Once they have your resume, or have talked to you, they will send a package at NO EXTRA CHARGE.
They make the shipping so low, so it seems as if it a fantastic deal so you can not say NO..However, read all small print, and do not give your credit card over any website you have not looked more into such as BBB,etc.Or look into their secure website..If you have done this,and they have your information, the best way is to either send in written letter as soon as possible, or talk to your credit card and say this is a fraud and you need to have this removed, or if you have not been sent anything, you still need to be in contact with your credit company, this way it does not get used 3m down the road.
Once again, if you win something, or job postings, you should never have to pay.
Good luck..Protect yourself first!!
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||Lannae||11/12/09 8:17 AM|
to the one lady who was asking about workathomerecruiters, same as my above post, you should never have to pay. Larger companies, all have sites listed for careers, of you can contact them and find out. Or most companies will either post their own, or hire an agency. They will PAY them already. Then they will look for employees, which is free of charge to you. They will then check backgrounds, resumes, etc.
There may be some companies out there who do charge you, but once again look at the fine print,do they guarentee a job, and if so, by when, rate of pay,etc..and then before you pay, you should have a contact name and info, and a contract saying what they will do for this fee.
Anything that requires you to pay. You have to protect yourself and find out all details, and also check your BBB, for any complaints.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||kten7eleven||11/12/09 2:05 PM|
I got pulled into this scam and when I called the number to cancel I was put on hold for a long time before someone answered. Then there was so much noise in the back ground they couldn't hear me? I called again from a different phone and the same thing they could not hear me. I waited a few hours and called and finally talk to someone who tried to talk me out of canceling. He gave me a code and told me to email a message to cancel along with the code and that did not work they are not going to let you cancel before they start charging your account the full amount. In fact they had already charged my account same day I ordered it for .99 so they have no intention of allowing you to cancel. I called my bank card and was able to have it removed. You also have to cancel your card or they will keep on charging you.

I found another Google work from home scam.
it is posing as a fake news site, with an article saying Google is hiring people to work from home.
how do I know it is fake?
if you click on any of the headers like home, weather, sports, etc. they all go to the same page, the signup page for the work for home kit.
I did a search for tv stations in Boston and there is no channel 6.
the whois says the news6boston website was just created 2 weeks ago and is owned by someone in Arizona.
here is an article from workathometruth: http://www.workathometruth.com/not-recommended/2009/11/14/is-news6boston-com-a-scam/

This is a fake article There is no such place or business as the Wall Street Gazette and WallstreetGazette.com is the fakers own web site they created to take your money. Don't click on anywhere on this article or it will take you to the sign in site. How can these people have there articles under a sponsored site? Has anyone from PopEater.com checked who they sell these spots to? I wonder how much they have made scaming people?
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||celogan||11/17/09 3:27 PM|
What An Absolulte Rip-Off, in several different ways. You could get hit many times depending on how many clicks you hit to sign up for whatever they popped up at you. The FINE PRINT tells you they're Not Google, and read closely and you'll see how much money AUTOMATICALLY is going to hit your credit card unless you cancel within THREE Days.

I am an idiot. I reported this scam to Google just now, I was trying to help. Now I see it's well covered here already. Therefore I was actually a nuisance as now it's an extra message someone has to read. Sorry!
Thankfully I have been a member of Adsense for many years and they have been very good to me. I basically do work at home for Google, but I let people know Google lets anyone sign up (they just need to spend a couple years making some decent low cost sites for the ads to succeed or make one very popular site right off the bat and pay to advertise it).
THE REAL GOOGLE WORK AT HOME KIT:
#1) Go to www.google.com/adsense/ and make a free account.
#2) Add couple ad codes to each of your NON adult (porn/gambling/illegal/hate/spam) web site pages (in the HTML code).
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||cynmed||11/18/09 2:10 PM|
Someone from "Google Money Masters" actually just phoned me -- I just found out I had been scammed and blocked my card and Wells Fargo is looking into the charges for me. THE POINT HERE IS: The guy on the phone was a 16-year old smart*** , arrogant and laughing through the whole thing. That they are a legitimate, multi-million dollar business. He said it was my fault for not reading the fine print (that part is unfortunately true) - but WE ALL KNOW that the message is designed to get you to sign up "quick." I told him that he knew what he was doing was deceptive advertising, that he wasn't selling a product and HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH GOOGLE. I asked him for his phone number, he gave me a bogus one. He actually said he was in the Bahamas, sipping on a marguarita! It amazes me that Google has not come down hard on these people. Told him I had reported as an Internet Criminal Complaint, was going to call Google (anybody know the right number?) and would continue to follow through.
The fraud dept at Wells Fargo knew exactly what had happened, even knew the names of the company..and yet it still goes on!!!
I am lucky in a way as they just got a little over $60 from me - but I am WONDERING ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN HIT HARD BY THIS. GOOGLE, ARE YOU LISTENING?
Thanks, and good luck to all!
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||lobo.eliana||11/20/09 3:24 PM|
Google why do you allow these conmen to make money off YOUR name"
Here are the sites:
Given the difficult financial circumstances many people are currently in, it seems reprehensible to me that you at Google do not ban this type of bait and switch from your domain. Unless of course, you too are making a profit off the misery and misfortune of others. It's the only way I can see you as a corporate entity allowing someone else to profit off of your corporate identity. The logo use should be a matter for litigation unless you have actually given permission for these con men to hide behind it...
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||Deacon Frost||11/20/09 4:49 PM|
A lot of you are attacking Google's standpoint on these scams, and while they are horrid, you must realize that Google is already doing everything they really can in these circumstances. The sites offer legitimate information, merely at a rip off price with lots of fine print. While this is illegal, it's not Google's responsibility to take action, and if they did, they'd only be out of money.
As for putting links on their home page warning people about it, they don't need to. Any time something like this is reported, if enough people join together, Google will blacklist the website, and it won't ever appear in the search engine again. They are quite kind when it comes to things like this, and do take action against the site. However, instead of drawing attention to the fact that they exist, they merely remove all data related, which protects the average user moreso than informing them of the scam's existence.
As for work from home on a steady income goes, it is possible, yet you will need a good skill set. If you're willing to dedicate a month of your time to learning something useful, you can make ends meat online. Advertising is nice and all, and can bring in quite a bit of money, but it's more work than simply marketing a skill that people need. Just do a Google search :P.
I recommend learning web development, design, or something like that. There's lots of sites out there that will help you get started in learning something new, something that will make you money with enough effort. However; there's always Get-Paid-To sites, but those never pay well enough. So, learn something new, get good enough at it to market yourself, and then start. There is NO immediate, permanent fix to financial problems, everything takes work and dedication.
If you're interested, here are some key phrases I'd recommend searching in Google:
"How to make your own website"
"How to make an effective website"
"How to optimize your website for Google"
"How to use Google Adwords"
"GIMP image editor"
etc... find something that works for you :).
See ya in the real world, freelancers.

It is not at all illegal. Do a google search for 'negative option billing'. Simply because you are unable to read the fine print does not make something illegal.

I know someone who is out $60.00 for an outfit calling itself Sare Services LPD (seems to have many names)
PO Box 2100 East 26th Ave Aurora Co. 80019...$60.00+ to this person is a lot of money.
How can someone help stop this outfit and /or get thes folks money refund on a credit card. Any help here?
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||whitehawk||11/25/09 4:32 PM|
It seems that the Sare Services LPD is a service company for many "Google Work At Home" outfits..just a few are:
www.onlinecash.com........quickprofitkit.com....and many others of this type.
Here lies the setup...Sare is just the "service" for them and cannot give out company names/address/phone nub's.
Also cannot refund ANY credit card charges..cancel in any way for a refund of any type.
This is no more then a front for many of the "Google Work At Home" rip offs.
The phone # for Sare Services LPD is 866-407-4020 if someone has a need or for the law to followup on.

THe image can be found at this link : http://news11nyc.com/finance/2.php?t202id=11482&t202kw=adsonbiz Well, i do this for a living and personally I wouldn't deposit this check into my account even if it was made payable to me. There is more than one thing wrong with the check. The routing number for the Citi Bank on the aforementioned check image seems invalid. This seems like a classic example of check fraud.

@cardine - Thank you for your input. I am really trying to understand this now. This is interesting. Would you mind checking the numbers at the bottom of your legitimate adsense check and post a reply to let us know if routing number is correct? Thanks!
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||cardine||12/2/09 10:45 PM|
It is a legitimate check (the routing number is correct). Do a google images search for "google check" or "adsense check" and you can check other pictures of adsense checks for yourself. The site you linked to probably just took one of the pictures of an adsense check on the internet and pretended it was their own. So the check is legitimate, but it probably has nothing to do with news11nyc.com
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||dkincaid||12/3/09 7:34 AM|
Google is aware. Check out this link. http://www.webpronews.com/topnews/2009/07/13/google-warns-users-of-google-scamshere. There are links to the "official Google blog" and links to reporting mechanisms to crack down on the scammers.
Is this a scam? Obviously. We have to take responsibility for our own decisions. Big brother will not always be there to save us from ourselves.
Good luck and be well.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||DWCustomz||12/3/09 6:28 PM|
The Google starter kit is not a scam. They do offer information, but nothing that could be found out on the web anyways. They just charge an arm and a leg for almost useless info. The best way to buy any type of service like this, is to buy a Visa Gift card and charge it to that. When you find out that the information that was provided was useless but the organization already started their payment schedule as soon as you log in. I fought these guys off and block them from getting to my money by disputing with my bank. My bank says," We see this all the time." So I believe they are some type of service but the cost does not nearly justify the amount of product you acquire. Do your research. If it has a Google logo, it's affiliated with googlr,right? WRONG, it clearly states thst they are not sponsored and not afiliated with google. I'm really suprised that google didn't stomp on these clowns. All i have to say is Fake address and gift card if you suspect a scam.I am definately putting this under scams and shams in my site. We have to crush thses people before they almost get another person.

Watch out the three or five days to cancel won't work for everyone. I tried to cancel the day I signed in after I found out they charged my card over $80.00. I called and they put me on hold for a long time and when they finally answer they tell you they can't hear you because of to much noise on the line. I kept calling and finally this guy answered and told me to write a email message with the word "cancel" and my membership number and that didn't work. I finally called my bank and they took care of it.

This ad KEEPS popping up and opening another browser on my computer at least every 30 min or so. I haven't signed up for anything and just close the browser when it opens. I have firefox and have everything set to block pop ups but this google ad just continues to pop up. Does anyone know what I can do to stop this?
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||whitehawk||12/5/09 4:47 PM|
It needs to be REPORTED to anyone and everyone that you can think of or find online for site reporting.
Without folks calling and emailing on this stuff...it will never stop....do some homework and stop it .
Many reporting these sites in in past have in fact ended a great many.....Good Luck

|Re: the google work at home starter kit||chargers||12/10/09 12:23 PM|
Cancel your credit card
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||whitehawk||12/10/09 3:12 PM|
ALSO FULL REPORT TO THAT COMPANY'S AREA BBB OFFICE...BBB CAN IN FACT STOP A LOT OF THIS..ONLY WITH REPORTS.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||danielroofer||12/14/09 12:54 PM|
>>>How about if someone is traped by this situation, what would be the next step to do?.Contact your card issuer/bank and seek further advice, try to get the monthly debit canceled by contacting the company making the charge, if they refuse or you cannot contact them then the card may need to be canceled - best to discuss this with your bank and of course read the small print of whatever scheme you signed up to.

I almost fell for it today as it came from an add on MSNBC and went to this news6 article. Then it got to good to be true. Just wanted to warn everyone that this onlinenews6.com is a fraud.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||whitehawk||12/29/09 5:08 PM|
You have that right...His is really out of hand now...more ways to get sucked into these outfits.
Beware of any of the following named web sites:
identityvault...quickprofitkit...onlinecaskkit...onlinecashsuccesskit...and many,many more.
Each one of these are coming out of the SAME office under many company names and phone nub's
using PO Box nub's in Aurora Co. If you join one and c/c pay you will in FACT be billed for 3-4 other
outfits that seem to be all under one roof in this town and refunds if you can are a B-----.
Keep eyes wide open and have a GREAT NEW YEAR................................................................

""when you go to sign up, read a small print on their site. It is $1.95 to go in, but after 7 days they automatically charge you $70+ per month. The $70+ is not mentioned anywhere in the main ad, so they would catch anybody who is not reading small print. Only way to cancel subscription is through postal mail address, so they can claim that letter was delayed etc"""
USE A CREDIT CARD TO PAY FOR "ANYTHING" ONLINE , YOU HAVE THE POWER PEOPLE ,IF YOU GET SCREWED DO A CHARGEBACK ,,IT COST YOUR CREDIT CARD COMPANY ON AVERAGE $1200 TO LAND A CARD CUSTOMER ,THEY WANT TO KEEP YOU ,,THEY WILL GET YOUR MONEY BACK AND THE SCAMMER WILL GET HIT WITH CHARGEBACK FEES ,,,THAT IS HOW YOU FIGHT THESE SLUDGE PILES , IF ENOUGH PEOPLE DO CHARGEBACKS THEY WILL LOOSE THEIR MERCHANT ACCOUNT !
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||whitehawk||1/11/10 10:46 AM|
Yes..good ways to cover your butt
May I add this outfit and others are in FACT MORE then one company.
You go in for #1company at $1.95...#2 company hits you with $48.95 #3 company hits you with $28.85
You WILL be billed each month and canceling after you find them on your c/c bill takes far to much time.
IF..IF you can get it done by the company doing the billings...you must sit aside some time to do this.
Please report these outfits as they come up...(there are many within one company ) go online for reporting sites.
This will never stop without full reports to the right places.
The list of the BAD ones are to long to list....just report ANY and ALL..

I read the story of the mother who lost her job and they live in Gaylord and made food money after starting the google work at home and try to get you to order form a link on there site. Well i lived and still have family in Gaylord,Mn and there is no Marie Thompson. So I suggest people really do thier homework before believing any stories
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||YFWTWG Jr||1/20/10 10:37 PM|
I honesty made a mistake but I got all my money back. I never put a pay stop or a charge back. I not event called my bank. How i did it. I traced all this people phones, servers, saved fake ads, triangulate their location etc and let them know my findings. This is a small portion of what I have:
Company Web Site:
http://www.sipandmm.com/ (But they change their strategy coincidentally after I send them my letter. Now they tell people to make money with Google etc. blah, blah, blah. . . they don't offer the "Google jobs ad anymore")
You can try to cancel by calling here but they don’t answer the telephone or make it hard for you to cancel: 866-919-2556. They don’t provide verifiable physical address so in order to trace them I used a different confidential old NSA “path tracing trick”.
Some of their other phones are:
1-800-405-8582 ext 500 “so called corporate offices”
(888) 681-9905 ext1115
(888)-681-9905 ext 1078
Some of these phones could be patched to cell phones tagged with names. This last information cannot be verified at this moment but will be shortly.
Their "corporation" has grown fast making money scamming people. They have being able to contract a bunch of yams with ties that are working for them as clueless slaves. Some of their scammers will give you the following names:
1) Their answering machine who says “corporate offices”. No description!
3) Daniel Beninfield (sell himself as Google casting member)
4) Adams that say he is from “Google Casting”.
5) Dustin Ridge (which I think is Adam with a blond hair wig).
7) Clay Taylor
8) Jon MC Kay
Any way this family of morons is located in Utah and this is the people or company behind the scam.

I have even photos of them and also some of the people that works with them too + their addresses, phones etc, just in case!
To cancel you can do what ebizman say or do what I did. Create a file with all the details for the FBI and submit it until it drags them few meters face to the floor. I send this company an e-mail telling all the information I have and also specifying all the contractual violations they had incurred in detail, prior to send my report to the FBI. No joking! They answered me in 30 minutes and my money was back in my bank 3 days after that.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||whitehawk||1/21/10 4:56 PM|
identityvault...sup*powerplatform...onlinecashsuccesskit and MANY others.
All under just ONE company with many,many names.
Dazzle (many more names)
22100 E 26th Avenue #100 (POBox)..one of many PO Box Nub's
Aurora Co 80019
866-528-6214 (one of many phone nub's)
Some very good information on posts above on how to handle this ripoff stuff
and without reporting each and everyone of them...nothing will change..EVER.
|Re: the google work at home starter kit||cynmed||2/17/10 5:38 PM|
HERE IS SOMETHING THAT WORKED FOR ME IN GETTING MY MONEY BACK: You might try your BANK FRAUD department. Wells Fargo Fraud Department fought with these guys and credited back what they took ($59.74). It took months, even though they knew it was fraud, but they still had to pin these guys down. (note: I had cancelled in the 3 days, they didn't acknowledge it and instead charged my account). I had to change my account number or they would have kept charging it. These guys were bold and brash and even called me. Good luck out there, and I, for one, am much more careful now when using my credit or debit card on the web!
