    Mumbai Mirror our daily newspaper had carried an article recently regarding a major DUPE CASE. Lets open the pandora box of the woman who duped so many people.

    A woman would catch on the innocence of other women who are eager to work from home for decent money to enhance or make a decent living. She would ask them to give her 'X' amount of money so that she can help them "WITH CLOTHING BUSINESS". People trusted her and gave her their hard earned money which had no returns for months. To widen her opportunities she had a tie up with the owner of a beauty parlour. Woman who visit this parlour are informed about the clothing business. The owner of the parlour would lure customers to invest money in "clothing business" and take them to confidence saying that their money is safe as she is a good friend of her and has known the woman for long years. People were blindfolded to the reality. A beauty parlour running in the hearts of a city with many customers is not going to close down. People would pour in their hard earned money. The owner of the beauty parlour would earn an margin for bringing in clients for her friend.
    Fate took its ugly turn for the duper when on a particular dawn a person who has invested money in the so called "clothing business" turned up asking her to return her money as she is in financial need. This smart woman instead of returning her money went to the police station and lodged a complaint against the woman who invested the money saying she is mentally and physically harassing her for no reasons. As the transactions were in cash, most of the time, there was no proof. The investor was taken by surprise at the sudden turn of event.
    When the article was published in the newspaper, more investors ran to the police station as they identified the woman whose photograph was published in the newspaper as the "DUPER".
    Police doubts that she has duped people in "crore of rupees". What was considered to be a petty fight amongst two women has turned out to be a big Racket of cheating people.
    Just to alert you all this member from Indusladies, would like to tell you - please do not fall in to such traps. Do not trust strangers. I do not understand, human mind, it takes time to trust your own relatives, friends and love. but it happily trusts a stranger!!!!!!!!!

    God bless us !!!!!!!!!!

    Dear malspie,
    In recent years people are given false hopes and cheated.This is what happening day by day.Not only this,some people out of their ignorance deposit their hard earned money to unauthorised finance companies.Though such cases are telecasted very often on televisions,published on magazines,news papers,still there are people who are often cheated.People who are bad are always bad.We cannot change the whole world.But still we can change the scenario by being alert ,think a while before deciding.The solution is not in the hands of cheating people but to the people who are cheated.
    And abt work from home opportunities,there are lots of scam mails and the chances of getting cheated are on the peak.We can atleast catch a minimum of 1 news per day abt useless and freud mails being discussed here.
    Thanks for sharing the info .Please keep posting more info on this.

    All work from home jobs seem to be scams.Is there anything really genuine?How can one find out that....But I see many Americans who work from home without any problem...This is really a serious thing to think about ..

    So far I havent seen anyone who have come across worthy work from home jobs....

    I found the following when googling....Might be helpful to all of us in researching if the home based job is really genuine...

    There are genuine work from home jobs that do not require you to set up a website and they pay well. This allows you to work from home and set your own hours. Most of the genuine work from home jobs are on contract basis, where you work as a freelancer. This way you set your own fees without setting up your own business.
    When you want to find jobs that let you work from home, your first concern is that they are legit work at home jobs. You want to take advantage of the benefits of working at home, but you don’t want to lose your hard-earned money through scams. Let’s face it, there are scams out there and many people think that all work at home opportunities fall into this category. However, there are many genuine work from home jobs that you can take advantage of and make a nice salary.
    The thing is that when most people do find genuine work from home jobs, they don’t advertise it so they can take advantage of the opportunity it presents. There are many companies that will gladly pay you to work from home because this frees up capital for them. They do offer legit work at home jobs because they do not have to purchase equipment and they only pay for the work that gets done.
    Medical billing, for example, is one of the many legit work at home jobs that you can have. Doctors will send you the list of bills that have to be sent out and with only the purchase of accounting software, you can do all the billing they need from home. Then when the bills are paid, you enter it in the system and deposit the money in the proper account. You get paid either a flat rate per bill you send out and collect on or a percentage of the money collected. As with all genuine work from home jobs, with medical billing you get paid to work at home.
    Legal transcription is another of the genuine work from home jobs that are available. As with any job, these legit work from home jobs do require that you have training and expertise in the position you apply for. Companies will probably give you a trial assignment to see how well you work out and to make sure that you can do the job from home. Once you get started and build up a reputation, it won’t be long before you have offers for genuine work from home jobs.

    Dear Bhargavi,

    Thanks for your valuable comments.

    Dear Shravantika,

    Thanks for stepping in and posting your comments. My close friends and acquaintances have been duped by these work from home schemes. Their efforts are drained when the end of the day they had to listen to strummed music and not the chime of the coins. Its very sad to know that people extract work and pay nothing. Please be careful.
