They’re kidding, right? More Virtual Service Data scam posts.

I’ve received yet another email from an HR supervisor with VSD.  Here’s the running list of names so far:

Lori A. Asabell
Amanda Sweeny
Katherine Mason
Lori Stevenson

And email addys:
vdd@zenbe.com
vsd@zenbe.com
vsd@mailpanda.com

Remember, these crooks want you to pay them for traning materials that amount to you posting the same scam job lead around the ‘net.  Don’t fall for it!

The hard economic times and holiday season are brigning more scammers than ever out of the woodwork.  Some may not realize that they’re scamming others because they believed the hype.

Anytime that a job requires a training fee, it is a big red flag.  It’s a bigger red flag when the same company charges a different fee in each post.

Be smart.  Be safe.

  1. I just receive an email about this job. I wanted to check out the company before I replied and I found your post. You can add Katherine A. Asabell to your list of names.

  2. Just received an email today from VSD.
    Add another variation to the list of VSD HR supervisors:

    “Katherine A. Asabell”
    VSD Virtual Service Data
    HR Supervisor

  3. Thanks for the warning. I was thinking the same thing when I received her email. You are correct when you say that “Anytime a program request a payment fee to start any job, it is a big red flag!!”

  4. did you receive an e-mail like this?? BEWARE!!! THIS IS A SCAM!!

  5. Another Amy Sweeney here.

    I’ve been around the block a couple times. All you have to do is a google on Amy Sweeny @ virtual type data services…

    what a scam

  6. I got 2 offers today. One is asking for $12 and the other for $20. Let’s add more names at this list : Daniel Goodman, but this guy is not a HR Supervisor, yet… :))
    and of course Julius Otto – Human Resources Supervisor at Virtual Type Data Service.
    Gosh, I am just trying to find something to work, not to pay.

  7. Add another Amy Sweeny name to the list. I got one today asking for $15.00 for the “training materials”. Ha Ha. I feel sorry for anyone who falls for this email and you know unfortunately someone always des. Especially in these tough economic times. Whoever is running this SCAM should have their computer away from them and never be allowed near one again. Everyone be safe and keep your eyes peeled for the scams.

  8. I just received the same letter from Amy Sweeney, and the cost is $15.00 for training materials. I was interested to see how she received my name and email address. It is funny because, I kept thinking…I never applied to this company before. Considering I am actively searching for a job, I always google and do research before I respond. I am sure happy I did not become desperate before I did my research.

  9. I got the email yesterday and I just googled the company and found this site. Thanks for stopping me from doing something I would’ve regretted. When you need money sometimes you don’t always use the best judgment.

  10. I received e-mail from this lori here is.

  11. Just wanted to say thanks for putting up this website. I went to the bank today and deposited money so that I could try out this “opportunity”. Just before I was going to pay I googled the company name and found this website. I have tried alot of at home positions and everyone has been a scam. don’t know why I almost fell for this one.

    Another red flag is the email it came from: al@ponju.com (a free email service). If it was a real company it would have an email from the company website. Thanks again.

  12. Thanks so much for the information; thought i would look into this and found all the above comments. Mine read : My name is Julius Otto and I would first like to thank you for your interest in Data Service Work from Home.Continued with the rest of the garbage. Wish there was something we could do from home. Add his name too!

  13. another red flag to look out for is the typo or just bad sentence structure and lack of punctuation. no professional company would ever send this out:

    You can feel 100% comfortable that this is absolutely not a scam in any way, shape form or fashion. There is one reason and one reason only that hhere is a fee for the training materials.
    ———————
    do we not need commas between shape, form, or fashion? and the word “there” is spelled “hhere.”

    i always move on when i see this kind of thing.

  14. I received the same email from Carrie Curry. See copied email below:

    If it’s not a scam, then why am I paying you for training materials? If they weren’t such a pain, scammers would make me giggle.

  18. I have also just received this from Carrie Curry and this is about the 5th time (obviously a different person this time) and have filed an IC3 complaint with the FBI regarding this to see if they can get to the bottom of it.

    Will let you know if the progress. I have also included a link to this site in my report so that they can have a list of all the aliases, etc.

    Hopefully they will shut this down (somehow) 🙂

  23. The scary thing is that they may be taking personal information and using it for something illegal.. I wonder.. Other wise how do they get our email address?

  24. Thanks for sharing, all.

    I’ve noticed that whenever I update my resume on a site such as Monster or Career builder that the scam job leads hit my inbox more often. Sometimes the crooks are scanning resumes; sometimes they have collected email addresses from message boards or bought them from other scammers.

  25. just got an email now. I knew it was fake the second I opened it; seeing the fee just cemented my suspicions.

    It was from

    Hello,
    My name is Kathie Kurry , and I am a human resources supervisor at
    Virtual Data Service would first like to thank you for your interest

    in the position. Here’s a brief overview of what we have to offer you.
    Remember if you have any questions please feel free to email me back,
    and I will be sure to respond personally.

    Description:
    -Work from home full or part time [telecommute]
    -Full online training

    -Work your own schedule

    Requirements:
    Computer and email access
    Competent typing ability
    Basic internet knowledge
    Must be able to learn and set goals

    Details:
    We are seeking only self motivated people with the desire to work with
    online advertising.
    No experience is necessary. You must have a computer with internet
    access, a working email account, and basic typing skills. You can
    choose
    to work full or part time and the hours are set by you. We recommend 18
    to 36 hours weekly. You will be processing responses from
    advertisements; this will be explained to you in the training
    materials.
    Everything is sent via email. There is no contract to sign; the amount
    you choose to process is entirely up to you. As with any job, you must
    be able to respond to advertisements in a timely manner.

    Compensation:
    You will be paid $15.00 to $20.00 for each application you process. For
    example, if you process 35 in a week you can expect to make $350 to
    $700 weekly. The average person makes $600 per week. The amount of money you
    earn is entirely up to you. You will be responsible for keeping track
    of your earnings for tax purposes. We do not take out anything for

    basic computer skills.

    Payment for work completed:
    You will receive your payments through PayPal for each application you
    process. There is a one time
    non-refundable fee of $15.00 USD. This cost covers the training
    materials sent to you. Once you process your first response, you will
    have made back this fee. This is just a small processing fee,
    protecting
    from those who are not serious about doing this work. No business can
    cover administrative cost, wasted time or provide costly materials to
    everyone who inquires about this position. If this is not acceptable
    for
    you, or you cannot afford this small cost, please disregard this email.

    The training materials and information will be sent to you after we
    receive your administrative fee, you can begin immediately.

    If you do not have a PayPal account, click on the link below to open a
    free account so you can receive payment for your work and purchase your

    training materials. Please notify me once you have made the payment, so

    I can be sure the materials are sent to you. This is a completely free
    service and it is a verified secure website. When making your payment,
    please enter “Service/Other” in the “For:” field. Please send
    your payment through PayPal to our account at virtual_data@ymail.com

    please email me with your PayPal address so I may confirm receipt.

    NOTE:
    You can feel 100% comfortable that this is absolutely not a scam in any way, shape form or fashion. There is one reason and one reason only that there is a fee for the training materials. We need to identify those applicants that are going to take this serious. This is an at home job and leaves little ability to monitor applicants efforts. If this minimal fee is not acceptable for you, or you cannot afford this small cost, please disregard this opportunity . But be assured you this is completely genuine and legitimate!

  32. I also received a reply from a Carrie Lewis, asst HR supervisor. I responded to an ad on backpage. com for a virtual assistant job. They of course sent me the same reply that all of you received. Glad I checked this out. Of course they have no address or phone number listed so that also should be a red flag that they’re not a legitimate company.

  33. I almost fell for this too. Then I remebered anything that requires money is generally a scam. The google search gave me your warning. Thank you.
    Oh and add Mandy Mason to the list of names.
    I kinda wonder how many more i’ll get?

  34. Just got an e-mail from Kathy Karey that reads:
