Home Typing Scams
by BB Lee (C)2004

"Home Typing Scams" are one of the highest ranking work-at-
home scams on the Internet according to leading Internet fraud
watch dogs.

You see these "Home Typing Jobs" advertised across the
Internet. You probably receive their pitches in several
emails every day. These companies typically target anyone
who wants to work-at-home. Unfortunately, most of these
typing jobs are frauds. The following is a typical ad:

Home Typist Opportunity!
We offer you an excellent opportunity to earn cash working
from home as a "Home Typist." These jobs are available
world wide, you can set your own hours. Make up to a $1, 000
dollars a week working full time. No experience required!

Here's The Usual Scenario:
You receive a pitch like above for a "Home Typing Job" in
an email. The company sounds legitimate, claiming to provide
clerical help to leading business firms. They claim they are
over loaded with work and are recruiting new home based
workers.

The ad peeks your interest.

So, you respond to the ad with high hopes. They send you
a request. In order to process your application you must
send them a fee of anywhere from 29.00 and up. This is the
point where the red flags should go up.

Warning...Warning..Warning...Scam Alert!

But they don't. So, you send them the requested fee and
wait with baited breath for your first Home Typing Assignment!

In response (if any) they send you a list of companies who
might be hiring home typist. Or they might supply you with a disc
that includes instructions on how you can place similar
ads for home typist online or in print publications..and
sell respondants the same disc. Thus joining the ranks of the
scammers.

Who are the easiest victims according to online resources?

Moms at home raising children.
The disabled who are not able to take outside jobs.
Low income people desperate for cash.
Uneducated people with no job skills.

Actually, in my opinion, just about anyone looking to make extra cash might fall prey to these deceptive and misleading ads.

Be Wise:

Remember, the majority of Home Typing Opportunities online
are scams.

But if you do decide to get involved investigate the company.
Check the Better Business Bureau. Are they listed? How long have
they been in business? How many complaints have been filed against
them?

Report Offenders:
If you've been scammed by one of these companies report them to
the following agencies.

The Federal Trade Commission.
www.ftc.gov

Consumer Protection Agency.

Better Business Bureau.

Samsung Chromebook 2 (13-Inch, Luminous Titan)
Chromebooks run Web-based apps, not traditional PC applications

Chromebooks are designed to be connected to the Internet. You can create documents and spreadsheets or edit photos on a Chromebook using Google apps designed for these purposes. The Chrome operating system will not load and run traditional PC software like Microsoft Office and Adobe Photoshop. However, files created in these applications can be viewed and edited using Google apps on your Chromebook or cloud-based applications like Microsoft's Office web apps.

Store your files in the Cloud, not on the machine.

To help make them thin and light, Chromebooks are built without large-capacity drives. So instead of storing your documents, videos, and photos on your computer, you save them to Google Drive (Google's Cloud-based storage service). Your files are password-protected and secure, and you can access them anywhere there's an Internet connection. If you know you'll want access to a file or photo offline, however, you can easily save it to the built-in solid-state drive.

Enjoy fast performance and easy maintenance with the Samsung Chromebook 2. This slim, lightweight laptop features a 13.3-inch Full HD display, a powerful Exynos 5 Octa processor, an elegant leather-like stitched design, and up to 8.5 hours of battery life on a single charge. It boots up in just 10 seconds and delivers Wi-Fi speeds three times faster than standard 802.11n. Image optimization and noise reduction* improve video chatting, while security features like automatic updates and sandboxing technology protect your Chromebook 2 from viruses and malware. This laptop comes with AirDroid Premium, Wunderlist Pro, and Little Bridge software.

It's also equipped with mDNIe, Samsung's image enhancing technology adopted from its TVs, so you'll enjoy a richer, more realistic viewing experience.

Includes AirDroid Premium, Wunderlist Pro, and Little Bridge Software

A convenient software pack includes AirDroid Premium, Wunderlist Pro, and Little Bridge. With AirDroid Premium, you can use your Chromebook to manage your Android devices on the web. Transfer files, SMS, and manage photos and music, all in one place. Wunderlist Pro allows you to synchronize your to-do lists in real time with your coworkers and family, perfect for sharing grocery lists or project updates. Designed for children and adolescents, Little Bridge is a complete online English course where you can make new friends in a virtual 3D world.

Advanced Security Features Prevent Viruses and Malware

The Chromebook 2 is designed with built-in security features to protect your laptop from viruses and malware.
