Start-up Investments Are A Sign Of A Scam

You shouldn't have to cough up cash to be able to work for a company. Start-up investments are for the birds. Any company that askes you to make a "donation" or "investment" is scamming you. It's that simple.

Also, any company that states that you've won a prize from their company in a sweepstakes that requires you to pay a 'fee' for them to send your prize to you is also scamming you. Beware.

Also, when ordering checks for yourself or for a family member, if the company asks you for your Social Security number upon ordering, this, too, is a scam. They're only trying to gain access to your banking account. When ordering checks, all they need to know is the check number to start your new checks with and a few numbers off the bottom of your old checks, that's it not more info from your account. This has been on the news. Companies that sometimes advertise in the Sunday paper coupon inserts as checking companies sometimes aren't, I'm told.
