The Facebook “Cash From Home” Kit

Is Facebook hiring?

Probably, but not like this:

Facebook are hiring?

The text reads:

“If you spend much time online and have been wanting to work from home, you might be in luck. Facebook has now released a “Work From Home Program” that will allow people to work from the comfort of their own homes…Facebook has now opened it’s doors and will be hiring everyday people to work from the comfort of their own homes posting links, sharing stories, reviewing sites and more”

There are also supposed quotes from Newsweek and Larry King Live, all proclaiming the joys of working from home for Facebook via the Facebook Cash from Home kit:

The whole kit and kaboodle?

The clickable link relates to a URL which has various offers on it, including “deadly mistakes while talking to guys“, a nsfw dating splash and a work from home sign-up page.

On the above example screenshot, they want prospective hires to pay “$1.95 for application processing”.

Work from home sites such as this one typically claim Google are offering up the jobs – it isn’t quite as common to see a Facebook angle where these things are concerned.

Be careful when faced with job opportunities that sound too good to be true – especially if they mention internet giants such as Facebook, Google and others.

No matter what they claim, you’re probably not going to get rich quick (or slowly, for that matter).
