Working Wise Dear Working Wise: I saw an internet ad saying that I could make $1,000 a day on the Internet working from home. That sounds too good to be true. Is it? Signed Wary Dear Wary: I doubt a company that can afford to pay its employees $1,000 a day to work from home has to do much advertising. The Internet is filled with work-from-home scams masquerading as real jobs.

Do you have a work-related question? Send your questions to Working Wise, at charles.strachey@gov.ab.ca. Charles Strachey is a manager with Alberta Human Services. This column is provided for general information.

Top 10 Red flags to watch for: 1. They want your money up front; 2. You don’t have a good feeling about it; 3. The job title, duties and compensation are vague; 4. The job offer is a spam e-mail or a web-banner advertisement; 5. You are required to repackage items sent to you and ship them abroad; 6. The company is hard to identify, locate, or contact via telephone and e-mail; 7. You are required to transfer or wire money out of your personal bank account; 8. Unprofessional: poor grammar, spelling, web design, webmail e-mail address; 9. They want your Social Insurance Number or banking/credit information right away; 10. Too good to be true: guaranteed big money, no risk, no experience, no effort needed.

You can also check suspicious job opportunities using the Scam Detector app, which describes more than 700 scams, including nearly 60 employment scams. The Scam Detector (http://scam-detector.com) provides a weekly top-10 list of the latest scams in partnership with the Better Business Bureau of Central and Northern Alberta. The Background Check scam was number six on the Scam Detector’s weekly top-10 scams during the first week of March. In this scam the “employer” advertises a job, you contact them, and they ask you for your personal information to perform a credit check. Instead, they use your personal information to commit credit card and loan fraud. Other scams involve your bank account. The “employer” will quickly hire you and then ask you for your banking information so they can deposit your earnings. Instead, they use the information to steal your identity or your money. “Employers” in another common scam, send you a check to deposit in your bank account and ask you to write a cheque to someone else for a little less. You get to keep the difference. The only problem is that the check they sent you is fake, yours is real, and you are now out hundreds of dollars. March is Fraud Prevention Month. For tips and information on Fraud Prevention Month, visit the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at www.phonebusters.com. If you really want a job where you can work from home, you might want to try applying for traditional jobs that you can do from home and then pitch the idea of telecommuting. Technological advances, and potential cost savings, are making more companies open to the idea of employees working from home. For more tips on preventing fraud, check out the Central and Northern Alberta Better Business Bureau’s 10 Red Flags You Are Being Scammed at http://edmonton.bbb.org/article/10-red-flags-you-are-being-scammed-16627. Good luck!
