          I am fortunate to have discovered when I did. I just moved to South Florida from out of state and I’ve been looking for work through a few different job boards online. I assume that’s how they found me. I started receiving random spam text messages from different sources promising lucrative remote job offers. This one just said “Hello.”. I’m not sure if I was curious or just bored, but I replied. Almost immediately, the first person started with promises of easy work and ridiculous commissions. I’m skeptical by nature, but being frustrated from a full day of job searching, I consented to being contacted by her “boss” via Whatsapp. About 10 minutes later, I got a call from Sofie. She was very friendly and said she was British but now living in Florida. Possibly true, but more likely to make me feel at ease. It must have worked because I agreed to start the training portion of the job and download the app optimizing site: In the profile tab, she appeared to add funds to my work account. $1,450 i believe. Then she instructed me how to “optimize” a group of 40 apps. All i had do really was click a button and when the first app appeared, click another button and, after the cheesy graphic was done, the first task was completed. THAT’S IT. The whole process took about 5-10 seconds total. That should have been a red flag in hindsight. Instead, what I focused on how my training account grew by 40 cents. I kept completing the tasks until I was at #36/40 a new screen appeared. Apparently, I had come across a “combination task”. This was fairly rare and very lucky for her and me, I was told. She went on to explain that combos greatly multiply your commission, and hers, in this case. The only thing is, they also cost a lot more money from your work account to complete. This should have been red flag #2 for me. But since there was no harm done so far and, since I was making money still, I ignored it and continued. Since the work account was now negative because of the cost of the combo, she appeared to add $600 of her own money so i could finish the tasks. Then when I finished the rest of the 40 tasks she thanked me for helping her earn about $250 in 20 minutes. She then showed me that I had earned $59. After a brief celebration, it was time for my first actual work set of 40 tasks. I was able to finish all 40 in about 10 minutes (no combos). That earned me another $20. Now was the moment of truth. Time to withdraw my earnings. She had me download the app TrustWallet since the pay is in the form of crypto-currency. Which is fine for me. So, after about 30 minutes of “work”, I made $79 USD in the form of 0.0247 ETHEREUM. I know this isn’t the typical scam story up this point. I was actually feeling pretty good and ready for more. What got my attention was when it came time to start a new set of 40 tasks, she informed me that I need a minimum of $100 in my work account to get a new set of tasks. Having earned only $79, she instructed me use my credit card or link my bank account for the remaining balance. Which, I’ll be honest, I considered doing. For about a half of a second, that is. Instead, I gave her some excuse and started checking reviews and researching That’s when I found your review here. This is why I started out by saying that I am very fortunate to have found your website. I know I actually took them for $79, but I got lucky and recognized the red flags in time. I could have lost a lot of money. I can easily see how so many people fall prey to these predators. I really hope this helps others. All I can say is, trust your gut. Thank you for letting me share.

          TLDR: John Francis shared his experience of almost falling victim to a job training scam by He received a spam text promising a remote job, followed by a call from someone claiming to be a British recruiter in Florida. After completing simple tasks on an app, he saw his training account balance increase, which made him trust the process. However, when he was asked to deposit more money to continue, he became suspicious and decided to research the company. Finding, he realized it was a scam and avoided losing more money.

              I believe I’m scammed the same way you do sets of 40 you accumulate commissions but then it stops and you have to replenish in order to keep going and keeps repeating and you can’t withdraw your funds
