Beware of Fraudulent Instagram ‘Ambassador Offers’

For many of us, the ideal situation would be to work from home – I sure know that this is what I’m trying to achieve! But one must be aware of today’s scams. That enticing job offer may look to good to be true, and while most are aware to stay clear of sites sporting a fee to get started, many are unaware of other schemes offering free product or discounted items, but have hidden fees such as:

  • Given a discounted code to use but items arrive damaged or broken
  • Given a code to give others to use, but the items are sent broken to your purchasers and you’re required to foot the bill

The Better Business Bureau put together a report about phony offers, and has created a database for those who wish to record spam, a very helpful tool.

Here are a few articles in regards to the topic, always do your research and stay safe my friends!
