Online Money Scams-Make Typing Money From Home.
Let’s Start with a Company Called Type International. This Scam looks so Legitimate, that is why it’s still up and running. It’s sister company Ozweb Clerical, is also another site that looks so appealing to the average work from home seeker. The owner of Both of these Companies is a man Name Robert Burns. If you Google him, you’ll see what he’s really been up to.
Type International seems innocent enough when you first look at it. Surely anyone can do this and earn good typing money, right?
Unfortunately, the worst scams are the ones that seem the least harmful! This one almost looks legit. As a matter of fact, it looks so legit that even I was taken in by it just to try to pick up a few easy bucks. Let’s just chalk it up to another Biz Op Blunder!
The premise of Type International goes like this. You sign up with the company and they give you what they call “typing assignments.” complete these assignments and you can earn money typing. Now, the main problem I have with this company is not that they lie about the work. It actually is what they claim it to be.
The Problem I have is that if you read their web page, they claim that you can make up to $65 per assignment. The truth is, that’s just a bold faced lie. If you add up ALL the assignments that they offer, they just about add up to $65. And we are not talking about just a few assignments here!
Basically, this is the way they work. Each month you are given about 5 or 6 assignments. Actually, they are the same assignments each month. They consist of going to a number of places around the Web and posting ads for the company. The problem with each assignment is that the number of ads you are required to post is astronomical. Each assignment is about 100 posted ads. Some are 200.
For each assignment completed you get about $10.
I did a calculation of how much time it would take to complete each assignment. If you were an absolute typing genius, you would finish the 100 ads in 500 minutes. That comes out to about 8.5 hours. For 8.5 hours of work, again if you can type fast and accurately, that comes out to an hourly pay rate of about $1 an hour. Now, I know in some countries that may be a lot of money. This is why I despise this Company so much!
Typing International is simply exploiting people. I don’t know how anyone that does this to another human being sleeps at night. Anyway…
Here’s the real kicker! The site actually has a monthly membership fee to be able to do these jobs. So what you make isn’t even pure profit. You get to pay for the privilege of being exploited.
Don’t be fooled, Ozweb Clerical is basically the same setup except the entry fee is even greater.
So many people are looking for legitimate ways to make money from home. Please, Do your due diligence and stay away from Type International and Ozweb Clerical.
