A new Facebook hoax claims that you can enter a “Work From Home” program, and make enough money to live comfortably. Unfortunately, this post is nothing more than another Facebook scam.
The Facebook “Work From Home” scam claims that Facebook is hiring workers who want to make money from the comfort of their own couch. The program then asks for $4 in order to deliver a “Facebook Millionaire” kit. Once you buy the kit you are charged $94 per month for continued access.
The post often reads along these lines:
“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.”
The ad appears to be from a news source, however, that source is fake. It also showcases some impressive, yet fake, news report sources that allegedly highlighted the program.
The scam is currently going to an outside URL, which I won’t post out of respect for our readers. Given that the program claims to work with Facebook, but then goes to an outside URL, should prove to users instantly that this is another Facebook hoax. On the outside page the creators of the scam claim that users are earning $257 per day with the new Facebook work from home program.
Further proof is given when you try to leave the page and a popup box asks if you really want to leave the page. Facebook has over one billion users and would never need to resort to practically begging you to stick around to work for them.
Remember, if you have to ask yourself if a Facebook Work From Home program is a hoax, the answer is always a big resounding yes.
