Is Facebook hiring?
Probably, but not like this:
“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 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).

how can i join. plz help me
I actually fell for the facebook scam where
facebook is apparently offering “online work from home jobs” and people are
apparently making lots of money from it. One of the testimonials even states
that the man from Cape Town is making R5000 a month through this. All I had to
do was to sign up for a fee of only R4.95.00 and they would send the training
kit to me. The thing about them is that they did not ask for my banking
details, only my card number and the 4 digits at the back of my card.
Ignorantly I thought well, they not asking for my account number so at
least. but little did I know. The culprits made 4 attempts to steal R1700.00 from my account within minutes of me signing up.
I am so grateful to my Bank who phoned me immediately to inform me about this and for putting systems in place to quickly alert them of such fraudulent activities. This has been a serious wake
up call. I did not know that perverts can do so much with so little information
like a card number. I am so grateful to God and to my bank for alerting me on time and
stopping these culprits from stealing from me. If you reading this, please be warned!
Was your card accepted or did it say ‘Card Rejected’? I am afraid I have done the same thing as you. But it said ‘Card rejected’, I entered the number again but then it said ‘Denied’ so I just closed the website. You think they have my card number to misuse?
Nobody can steal money by getting only card number. You gave them 4 digit number from back side of your card. That was the key to open your account details. It calls CVV number. The CVV Number (“Card Verification Value”) on your credit card or debit card is a 3digit number on VISA, MasterCard and Discover branded credit and debit cards. On your American Express branded credit or debit card it is a 4 digit numeric code. Never give your cards CVV number to anyone if you have already gave them your card number.
so what if you don’t have money att al on your card and you gived them yr dats? next time when you put money on my card, they can still it ?

May 7, 2012 – From the outside looking in, it may appear that the press regularly reports stories when a company’s website, database or intellectual property has been hacked, stolen or compromised.
