Scams...  
Hey everyone,

So as much as I don't want to put more bad news on here, I figure this could help everyone in the long run.

I recently obtained a position as an SEO writer online.  I have done this in the past with other companies, but they are for temp contracts, so they only last so long.  So I was super stoked to get this one for some income.  I did a bunch of articles for them and kept in contact with them.  Well, over the past two days, I didn't hear from them AT ALL.  Finally, I looked around online, only to find a report similar to Snopes based upon the emails I had received.

It was a total scam.  People are scum.  It's like they did it for the sick pleasure of it because they didn't get any info like my real name, any numbers, or anything like that.  But you're going to do this in today's economy?  Really?  Thanks a ton.

Being scammed makes you feel like a total ass because it makes you feel stupid.  That's the thing about it that sucks more than the actual scam itself.  I just hate it.  So I have to tell you guys to just be careful who you trust online pretty much always, but when you are looking for work too.

serious hugs. I hate that there are people out there who take JOY out of doing stuff like this to people.

I know. And it's not like this is the first I have heard of it either. It's a big part of why I wanted to make sure I posted this.
