    Can't believe this. Normally she figures out scams pretty quickly, but she thought this is real.
    She said she thought read an article on a news site awhile ago.

    Posting this as a public service announcement on internet scams.

    Breaking News: Google Now Hiring People To Work From Home
    Google is Set To Hire A Group Of Americans To Work From Home In The Next Few Days. Thousands Of Jobs Available, Anyone Can Apply.

    These scam sites are not hotlinked. They will probably be taken down soon anyway.
    scam site: news3insider.com/finance/google-hiring-you.html
    scam site: geasystreet.com

    ABC News says it's a scam: http://abcnews.go.com/Business/work-home-google-scam/story?id=8438110

    People, these keywords are red flags for scams:
    - work from home
    - make a lot of money
    - no experience necessary
    - stop living paycheck to paycheck
    - generate income using xyz
    - start today
    - anyone with a computer can make money
    - easy income
    - order your kit
    - receive a package that will contain all the instructions you need to start working from home
    - performing simple and straightforward tasks
    - your first checks will be about $xyz to $xyz a week. Then it goes up from there

    Anyway, if it's too good to be true, it's a scam.

    That is ALWAYS true, regardless of whether you're online or offline.
