Please Be Aware!
If you are brand-new and get an email out of the blue from someone you do not know… If an email seems like a scam, it probably is. Don’t email back – just delete.
Things to look for are…
can’t use credit card – only money order/cashier’s check or check
they are deaf so you can’t call them
text only so you can’t call them
they don’t include all their info – only an email
requests for personal info…
NEVER respond to emails from someone who wants to pay by Cashier’s Check or Personal Check or Money Order… they are scams.
PLUS, almost all scam emails are coming to you from a contact form on corporate’s site – they’ll have a cream background and usually only the name and email are filled in. The content and the above clues helps you determine if it is spam or legit.
Please read the scam emails below as they keep resending variations of these. Send the email to your Team Leader if you are not sure.
Here are a few examples…
He doesn’t include a phone number but wants yours.
Does not complete address on initial form.

Wants to pay via check.
