Computer Career Institute Scam

Yesterday I received an email about Computer Career Institute (CCI). I was first taken to www.wrwdtvreporter.com and then to www.ccicourse.com. BEWARE! The report that you see from the Better Business Bureau is not their report. It belongs to a real school by that name that offers no online programs. It is only campus based. If you call the number on the BBB report you will find that out. The real college says that they do not know how they got linked to those sites above. The fake CCI is making false, outrageous claims that they guarantee you a job with a Fortune 500 company 3 days after completing a six hour training. DO NOT FALL FOR THIS SCAM!

Find Out About SCAMS

Find out about scams BEFORE you get SCAMMED! There are so many scams out there it's hard to know who to trust. Have you ever gotten an email saying you won a lottery in Nigeria? Guess what? That was a scam. A lady recently lost her whole life savings because she was told that they needed her bank account number to make the deposit. The poor old lady fell for it. I reccommend visiting SCAMBUSTERS to find out about the latest email and home business scams.

Make Money While Giving Back

If you are interested in giving back to your community and would like to make a little extra money in the meantime. You can donate plasma and get paid for it. Each organization pays different amounts. I recently found one in my city that pays $75.00. If you are interested, you can contact the American Red Cross in your city and they will be able to tell you where to do this. You can also search "Blood Banks" in your local Yellow Pages.
