There is a Century Research, LLC, but it’s in Secaucus, NJ, not New York. Certified check scams are old school and used to steal goods, information, or cash from the recipients. In a job scam, checks are either made out for a larger amount and the recipients instructed to deduct the amount owed and to send the rest to a third party.
Notice Dwain asks for a cell number and not a home phone. He also offers to send the first task right away without an interview. This is a red flag. The rate per task with payment via certified check is a red flag. A company name with an address that does not match at is a red flag. Dwain’s email address is not a business address and does not have the business anywhere within the email; red flag. There are two titles for the same position, Customer Service Evaluator and Observer – which is it? Whichever it is, this is another red flag.
Stay Far away from this one.
