First class ticket to Scamville

Hi everyone,

My go-to website for jobs is Indeed, but today I learned not everyone on Indeed is legit. I was suspicious when the potential employer, a travel agency, got back to me within half an hour of me submitting my application–I mean, I know I used to freelance for Mapquest, but come on! Sure enough, I sat through a Zoom meeting today and listened to exactly what this article describes:…beware/#.Xzmf2OhKhPY

Thankfully I didn’t shell out any money, but I was amazed at the people who were handing over the $49 registration fee that turns into $69.99 next month. I did my homework and found out that Archer Travel Group is an MLM hybrid or a pyramid scam. Side note–beware anyone who says “This is not a scam”.

Anyhow, just wanted to warn those of us who are looking for work that not everything on Indeed is legit, and travel agent is a common scam. As my Mom says, “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.”


I do freelancing as a part-time job.

Just a tip: any online work that requires you to pay is a red flag.

Your employers must be paying for your work essentials. I.e. subscriptions, devices

Thanks for the heads up ??

Thanks for the informative post on the pyramid scheme you picked up on. I have often wondered about Indeed and their listings. Thinking about paying for a registration fee is something I would never do.

Yea I found out that most of their remote jobs on Indeed are scams. I searched and a lot of people said that site was a scam. mad
