Local Articles in Albion
On this episode of the Chat with the Experts podcast, Pete the Planner joins us to talk about creating a budget, saving for your first home and much more.
Between cleaning the house for guests, cooking big meals and shopping for gifts, the holidays take a toll on our well-being and wallets.
Saving for a rainy day takes on new meaning if your roof springs a leak during a storm.
I would suggest you try googling this search string - "Worldwide Freelance complaints" and "Worldwide Freelance consumer complaints"
There are a lot of scam reports on it and on other companies that appear to have related or same ownership, all using the term Freelance or Freelancers in the website or company name. They appear to contact people from web-published resumes or LinkedIn type accounts where people "advertise" themselves.
This particular one appears to be a check cashing scheme, where checks (which might or might not be "good") are sent to you, you cash them through your personal cash account (thereby assuming all responsiblity for them having good funds behind them and not being laundered criminal enterprise money), then you send money (minus a commisison or fee) to someone else by moneygram or such, which of course is instantly cashed before you can find out if the check was actually good. And of course, even if you do not send the money till the check "clears", it can bounce back later if the originating bank voids it, and you pay the bounced check fees and have to pay the money back to your bank.
This is called being a money mule - commonly used to launder crime-sourced funds or to get money out of the country when someone cannot get it through customs/secret service from their own accounts without being detected.
This is a type of business commonly only one step removed from the Nigerian scam.
Instead of getting into this "business", I would take up running if I were you - as far away as possible from this deal. Remember, if it sound too good to be true (like envelope-stuffing and a lot of other work-from-home advertised schemes), it probably is.
