I almost had fallen to this scam if hubby didn't stop me!

Too good to be true nga naman if you read it first time, but I'm always cautious because Dana always reminds me not to fall for it or believe it as most work at home jobs as scams.

Hope you have a wonderful Monday Mommy Juliana!

I was just typed in "virtual data service" into google and your blog came up. I was looking for a position to do something at home for extra income as my husband was just laid off. I am a stay at home mom too with two under three. So thank you for your post on this. I got this job position off of craigs list in the houston area. I have a mom friend who does a lot of data entry for companies she found on Craigs list so I thought I would search it out. I got the same letter you posted but by Rose Hudson instead of your Amy.
