Previously, we shared a guide on How To Tell If a Part Time Job Is a Scam and now, we come out the following guide to identify a scam data entry job.

How they set u up?

The so-called data entry outsourcing firms tell you that they provide data entry outsourcing work to firms who do not have administrative staff on hand. Most of their clients are well-known big local companies. They claim to have more work then they can handle and need data entry workers to help them with typing, word processing, data entry and data entry reviews.

The Scam is starting by

In order to process your application, this data entry outsourcing firm will require you, the applicant, to pay an application processing fee that can range from RM25 to RM250. Other scammers might tell you that the fee will cover specific data entry programs that you must use to complete the work.

Cold Hard Truth

Real data entry outsourcing firms do not charge “application fees.” According to our research, the major firms that providing data entry outsourcing work provide software free of charge or allow you to use programs that you have on hand, such as MS Word or WordPerfect.

If you are told that a processing fee or any other fee is required before you may start working, simply ask that any "fees" be subtracted from the amount you have coming. Then, they will most probably tell you that you are messing up their company accounts.
