Homebasework – it is a Fraudulent Home Based Job Website

The "Home Base Work" Website

homebasework.in, homebasework.net, homebasework.com

I bought advertisement posting job for 40$ from their website(Homebasework) and applied for Form Filling Job for my sister, and Copy Paste Job for my brother. They (Homebasework) provided me with a list of websites, forums and blog lists, so I started to work. In their list, some websites didn’t work and some sites do not allow spam posting.

I posted 100 links daily, which means, 10 ads on 10 websites and forwarded them to homebasework.in@gmail.com on a daily basis. So one day I got a reply from them that I should not send links on a daily basis, instead, I should send 3000 in a month.

I said OK. I told them that their given website list is not in a manner like other sites….some sites keep their posting for 15 days , 30 days or 90 days, and some sites mention that spamming is not allowed, which means, you can't post same ad multiple times. And some websites delete your spam posting on the spot, and some delete it later on without giving notice.

I posted 3000 ads in a month and forwarded the links to them. They replied saying it will take 5 to10 working days to receive a report from their US head office. I said Ok. Ten days went by, but no reply from them. I contacted them via email informing them that I am waiting for my work report along with my salary.

Then they replied claiming that they are very disappointed because the report shows that 1200 of my links are not working. I was shocked and asked them to send me the report.

I told them that I was posting as per their given list and the sites are on their list. They said: “yes, but you can’t post on the same company website and read our instructions in work process file.” I said I have read it carefully and there was nothing mentioned.

I was continuously asking them for my work report but they didn’t give it to me. And at the end they offered me a second chance with different description, but same website list.

Ok, I started again and I posted 3006 links and forwarded it them, but got the same replied as above. They do not care whether you have received your work report or not, but when you ask them for their jobs and show interest to buy them, they respond to you immediately. Again, they replied: “Dear, you have done your work in sub domain and your 1500 links are not working” but they did not send my work report.

So, finally I asked them to verify their US office and address, but they couldn’t. So listen carefully, I am in Canada and I went to the USA at their given address with my husband and guess what? You guys will be shocked. The address they have mentioned is a fake; there was no body there. And even their phone number is not working.

Please do not waste your hard making money to buy their fake jobs; they are only making fools of everyone.

Here is the letter I send them about my case:

In relation to the documentation received for the work requested in homebasework.net, I have some considerations to make:

1- The payment was received by you on January 4 and your commitment was to start 24 hours later with the work. You have not behaved as serious or reliable people by not responding to my emails requesting information.

2- I made a claim through Paypal requesting the refund of my money and that is when on January 12th I received an email from you sending me the details to start the copy and paste work that I had requested.

3- After reviewing the details and seeing several times the demo I received, I come to the conclusion that this type of work is not as clear and simple as you put it, as I understand I must assume an identity and register in 3000 web pages for a month with some data that are not mine and in some cases nonexistent.

4- The explanation offered in the demo is not enough, which generates doubts and confusion regarding the correct execution of the work.

5- I consider that there is a great difference between what you offer and what you deliver. I feel cheated and also invited to support them in their fraud.

I will continue with the claim presented in PayPal and will do what is within my reach to denounce this type of deception and prevent you from benefiting from the people who believe in you.

Online Threat Alerts Security Tips

Pay the safest way

Credit cards are the safest way to pay for online purchases because you can dispute the charges if you never get the goods or services or if the offer was misrepresented. Federal law limits your liability to $50 if someone makes unauthorized charges to your account, and most credit card issuers will remove them completely if you report the problem promptly.

Guard your personal information

In any transaction you conduct, make sure to check with your state or local consumer protection agency and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) to see if the seller, charity, company, or organization is credible. Be especially wary if the entity is unfamiliar to you. Always call the number found on a website’s contact information to make sure the number legitimately belongs to the entity you are dealing with.

Be careful of the information you share

Never give out your codes, passwords or personal information, unless you are sure of who you're dealing with

Know who you’re dealing with

Crooks pretending to be from companies you do business with may call or send an email, claiming they need to verify your personal information. Don’t provide your credit card or bank account number unless you are actually paying for something and know who you are sending payment to. Your social security number should not be necessary unless you are applying for credit. Be especially suspicious if someone claiming to be from a company with whom you have an account asks for information that the business already has.

Check your accounts

Regularly check your account transactions and report any suspicious or unauthorised transactions.

Don’t believe promises of easy money

If someone claims that you can earn money with little or no work, get a loan or credit card even if you have bad credit, or make money on an investment with little or no risk, it’s probably a scam. Oftentimes, offers that seem too good to be true, actually are too good to be true.

Do not open email from people you don’t know

If you are unsure whether an email you received is legitimate, try contacting the sender directly via other means. Do not click on any links in an email unless you are sure it is safe.

Think before you click

If an email or text message looks suspicious, don’t open any attachments or click on the links.

Verify urgent requests or unsolicited emails, messages or phone calls before you respond

If you receive a message or a phone call asking for immediate action and don't know the sender, it could be a phishing message.

Be careful with links and new website addresses

Malicious website addresses may appear almost identical to legitimate sites. Scammers often use a slight variation in spelling or logo to lure you. Malicious links can also come from friends whose email has unknowingly been compromised, so be careful.

Secure your personal information

Before providing any personal information, such as your date of birth, Social Security number, account numbers, and passwords, be sure the website is secure.

Stay informed on the latest cyber threats

Keep yourself up to date on current scams by visiting this website daily.

Use Strong Passwords

Strong passwords are critical to online security.

Keep your software up to date and maintain preventative software programs

Keep all of your software applications up to date on your computers and mobile devices. Install software that provides antivirus, firewall, and email filter services.

Update the operating systems on your electronic devices

Make sure your operating systems (OSs) and applications are up to date on all of your electronic devices. Older and unpatched versions of OSs and software are the target of many hacks. Read the CISA security tip on Understanding Patches and Software Updates for more information.

What if You Got Scammed?

Stop Contact With The Scammer

Hang up the phone. Do not reply to emails, messages, or letters that the scammer sends. Do not make any more payments to the scammer. Beware of additional scammers who may contact you claiming they can help you get your lost money back.

Secure Your Finances

  • Report potentially compromised bank account, credit or debit card information to your financial institution(s) immediately. They may be able to cancel or reverse fraudulent transactions.
  • Notify the three major credit bureaus. They can add a fraud alert to warn potential credit grantors that you may be a victim of identity theft. You may also want to consider placing a free security freeze on your credit report. Doing so prevents lenders and others from accessing your credit report entirely, which will prevent them from extending credit:

Check Your Computer

If your computer was accessed or otherwise affected by a scam, check to make sure that your anti-virus is up-to-date and running and that your system is free of malware and keylogging software. You may also need to seek the help of a computer repair company. Consider utilizing the Better Business Bureau’s website to find a reputable company.

Change Your Account Passwords

Update your bank, credit card, social media, and email account passwords to try to limit further unauthorized access. Make sure to choose strong passwords when changing account passwords.

Report The Scam

Reporting helps protect others. While agencies can’t always track down perpetrators of crimes against scammers, they can utilize the information gathered to record patterns of abuse which may lead to action being taken against a company or industry.

Report your issue to the following agencies based on the nature of the scam:

  • Local Law Enforcement: Consumers are encouraged to report scams to their local police department or sheriff’s office, especially if you lost money or property or had your identity compromised.
  • Federal Trade Commission: Contact the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357) or use the Online Complaint Assistant to report various types of fraud, including counterfeit checks, lottery or sweepstakes scams, and more.
  • Identitytheft.gov: If someone is using your personal information, like your Social Security, credit card, or bank account number, to open new accounts, make purchases, or get a tax refund, report it at www.identitytheft.gov. This federal government site will also help you create your Identity Theft Report and a personal recovery plan based on your situation. Questions can be directed to 877-ID THEFT.

How To Recognize a Phishing Scam

Scammers use email or text messages to try to steal your passwords, account numbers, or Social Security numbers. If they get that information, they could get access to your email, bank, or other accounts. Or they could sell your information to other scammers. Scammers launch thousands of phishing attacks like these every day — and they’re often successful.

Scammers often update their tactics to keep up with the latest news or trends, but here are some common tactics used in phishing emails or text messages:

Phishing emails and text messages often tell a story to trick you into clicking on a link or opening an attachment. You might get an unexpected email or text message that looks like it’s from a company you know or trust, like a bank or a credit card or utility company. Or maybe it’s from an online payment website or app. The message could be from a scammer, who might

  • say they’ve noticed some suspicious activity or log-in attempts — they haven’t
  • claim there’s a problem with your account or your payment information — there isn’t
  • say you need to confirm some personal or financial information — you don’t
  • include an invoice you don’t recognize — it’s fake
  • want you to click on a link to make a payment — but the link has malware
  • say you’re eligible to register for a government refund — it’s a scam
  • offer a coupon for free stuff — it’s not real
