Need some feedback on this Vigorous You company..

Hey all,

Just saw this forum yesterday big help on looking out for scams.. thought I bring a new one to the table.. I was recently browsing for jobs and came across this company "Vigorous You" about data entry job.. etc.

I looked on google couldn't find much about them so I emailed cause it said ask for more info so I did.

And below is the email I received..


Hi,

Thank you for your interest in this position. Please review the position description below and let me know if you have any questions.

The position for Data Entry that you have inquired about requires you to have a computer with email access. Printers are not at all required but can be helpful. You can begin working P/T and/or F/T. You will need minimal typing skills for this position. You will be processing orders from the comfort of your home from your computer. By following the instructions in your training you will receive requests via email to process orders for training materials.

You will be paid $20.00 for each order you process, for example: if you process 25 orders a week; you will make $500.00 weekly.

There is a ONE TIME ONLY FEE of $30.00 for your training package.

The training package will provide complete instructions on how you get started. The training package will be sent via your email. You may begin working the same day if you prefer.

NOTE: Once you have placed your first two orders, you will have already made back the cost of your training material. You will never be required to submit any form of payment again. You will never have to contact anyone directly as contact is made via email.

This Work from Home Opportunity will make you real money. This opportunity is legitimate, and how successful you are solely depends on the time and effort that you put in.

I am here to help you get started and answer any questions you may have.

If you are serious and willing to further explore this great opportunity, I look forward to hearing from you again.

What you can expect:
Thank you for your interest in working from home as a Data Entry / Marketing Rep. I have enclosed some more detailed information about the position.

DUTIES: You will be processing orders from your computer. The order applications will be sent directly to your e-mail and it will be your responsibility to follow up with them. The duties of this position are listed below.

Customer Service via Email -
Providing customer service to those who respond via email with questions about marketing promotions.

Internet Marketing -
Entering promotional scripts via Internet (Scripts will be provided with Materials).

Product Support -
Ensuring that business products are delivered promptly and accurately via Email.

REQUIREMENTS: You will need a computer with Internet access, a valid email address, good typing skills, and basic Internet knowledge. The salary for this position is $300-$500 per week, depending on if you are working part/full time and how much effort you put in. You can choose to work part time or full time. The more you work, the more money you will make! It is recommended that you work at least 15 hours a week, but there is no limit on how much you can work. You will need an e-mail account, as that is where all of your orders will be sent. You do not have to contact anyone by telephone, as all of our contact is done via email. As with any job you must be willing to work hard and be organized. Please only SERIOUS applicants.

COMPENSATION: You will be paid $20.00 for each application you process via e-mail. There is nothing else - no stuffing envelopes or calling people. For example, if you process 25 applications in a week, you will make $500.00 weekly. The amount of money that you earn is entirely up to you; it depends on the amount of time and effort you choose to put forth. The average person makes $300.00-$500.00 per week. You will be responsible for keeping track of your earnings for your taxes, as we do NOT take out any taxes. This is entirely your responsibility.

METHOD OF PAYMENT: You will receive your pay through PayPal. PayPal is a secure website, so you do not have to worry about giving out any of your personal information to people you do not know. You will be paid per application processed. When an application is completed, $20.00 will be credited to your PayPal account, which can be withdrawn into your bank account at your leisure. There is no minimum amount required before you get paid. You can read more about security policies at www.paypal.com

TRAINING: The training materials you receive will give you step-by-step instructions on how to get started. We will tell you all you need to know to essentially run your own business. You will be self-employed, we are just providing you with the training you need to do so. Please know that this training is complete, you will not have to pay for anything once you are finished. You will also not need to solicit other businesses for work. Once you finish the training you will be ready to start working!

HOW LONG IS THE TRAINING: Most applicants complete the training within 24 hours or less. However, you can do this at your leisure. Keep in mind that the sooner you go through the training materials, the sooner you will start making money. I will be able to be contacted via e-mail at any time after you have received your training materials to help you get started, or answer any questions you may have.

SO HOW DO I APPLY?
There is a one-time non-refundable fee for the training package. This also includes all processing fees and training costs. We offer training and support for as long as you are in business. The fee must be received before your training materials can be sent. We must charge this fee to cover training costs, processing fees, as well as to ensure that only serious applicants apply. There are no additional costs after this fee. Absolutely NO hidden costs. With that said, you will make almost the entire fee back when you process your first application.

Re: Need some feedback on this Vigorous You compan

Sounds like the kind of "job" that is really an "opportunity". You are suppose to spam forums with ads directing people to your clickbank account to buy something.

If someone clicks on your ad before the ad is deleted and buys something and the company you are spamming for gives you credit for the sale and the buyer doesn't do a chargeback then you might be paid a small commission of a few dollars, not the $20 they claim.

You are not paid for every ad you post, you are paid for every sale that ad brings in.

Re: Need some feedback on this Vigorous You compan

seems like the what you will be doing is recruiting more people to this same opportunity? for each $30 a sucker pays, you get $20 for "processing their application"? but how will you collect if nobody@nowhere.com doesn't pay you?

Re: Need some feedback on this Vigorous You compan

yea, it might pay you but the amount you have to pay for the packet and all would be a waste of time. Most of the time you will get no where because every hate spam and spamming might be the only direction to earn from this company.

Re: Need some feedback on this Vigorous You compan

Actually, I worked this program for a couple of months and made $825. This program, however, is no longer available because Kevin D. is now directing his attention elsewhere. The investment was modest as "work at home opportunities" go. He was basically recruiting people to find people to sell a line of health and fitness drink products, hence the "Vigorous You." He has discontinued this program because he had more recruiters sign up than sales people and that defeated his initial objective.

Are you sure about that? Cause I just received the training package for the data entry position. Are you sure he cancelled the program? That would be good to know!

Re: Need some feedback on this Vigorous You compan

All I know is people are having a very difficult - if not impossible - time trying to get ahold of them. Kevin hasn't been on AIM for weeks and he's not answering e-mail or telephone calls. He also pulled people links that designate payment to them.
