The Better Business Bureau rates them a big, fat "F".

I'd hang onto my money. It's unfortunate, but to really work from home and actually make money at it you either have to telecommute for a reputable company, have at-home skills like being a medical transcriber, consultant or writer; or, be willing to spend much more than an hour or two a day doing something you have complete control over, like selling your own things or items you've bought cheaply for profit on eBay, handmade items on etsy, things in that vein.


I wouldn't send Hazel one thin dime. :)

Not only is it a scam it sends you to other scams so you just keep getting suckered Worldwide Publications Pickering, Ontario is one of them.

They do not report a telephone number on their website and have a poor ranking with the Better Business Bureau. There are many websites that consider this program a scam. This part of the FAQ seemed suspicious to me:


"Once you receive your package, you will have access to a toll-free phone number for live customer support which is available 24/7."

Why not give it out to prospective employees right off the bat?

I hope you were not scammed but, if you were, report it to the authorities. If you used a credit card to pay, the card company may be able to get your money back for you.

Do let us know how it turns out.
