Home Job Placement Review: Legit Online Job or Scam?

You can easily make $100’s per day with this certified program, in your spare time.

Sounds pretty cool doesn’t it? Yep. Unfortunately, it’s a big fat lie.

In this review, I’ll show you beyond any shadow of doubt why Home Job Placement is not what it appears to be.

Home Job Placement Review

There are actually three different versions of this (that I know of) that all point to the same underlying program. As you will see, each tries to sell the same scheme in different ways.

Version 1 | www.home-job-placement.com

This website is one of the more ethically promoted versions. They discuss the idea of placing ads online to make money in a way that is actually legit. They describe (in a round about way) the process of affiliate marketing.

This is where you promote other companies products and earn a commission when people buy through your affiliate links. I do this myself, and it does work. Even companies like Nike and Amazon have an affiliate program.

The trouble is, they don’t actually teach you anything. They also oversimplify the process and try to tell people it’s some kind of copy and paste job.

According to their website this is all you need to do:

  1. Get your unique tracking code for online and offline placements
  2. Place the ads (we show you where and how)
  3. Login and see how much money you have made

I make money with affiliate marketing, and I can safely say it is not that simple. To make money this way requires real training, and you must put in real time and effort to succeed. Just like any other business.

In any case, it’s sure as hell not a job.

Versions 2 | www.home-job-placement.com/bo

This version comes and goes depending on when you visit. Sometimes it leads you to this video page, other times somewhere else.

The video page is full of misleading hype about making quick and easy money, sprinkled with a bunch of generic news video clips. They try to make the news clips appear as though they are endorsing the program, when in fact they are not.

Fake News Endorsement

In other words, it’s a real news video, but they are not endorsing this program.

Then we have the fake testimonials by paid actors:

Fake Testimonial

Here’s the same guy on Fiverr:

Paid Actor Fiverr

I immediately recognised him from a previous review so that was an easy find.

Anyway, once you watch the endless dribble on that video, you are taken to an order page that asks you to pay $97 to access ‘Online Home Careers University’.

Online Home Careers University

I haven’t reviewed that particular “program”. But it’s essentially the same as every other version I’ve come across. If you read my review of WAH Edu you’ll see what I mean. They are one and the same.

A quick Google search reveals that this was a blatant scam with nothing of value inside the members area.

Version 3 | www.home-job-placement.com/bo/default.cfm?qualify=yes

This version starts out with the story of a woman named Kelly Simmons who is a fake persona they created to suck people in. This is the exact same story that is used over and over again across many near identical websites.

If you click on the link above, you will see other identical programs running under the same alias that I’ve reviewed. It’s continually updated.

Anyway, this is just ONE alias they use. Here’s another identical webpage, only this time they are using another alias:

Same sales material, they just swapped some of the details around.

This is very, very tangled web of lies and deceit folks. It is beyond crazy how far reaching this scam is. They all pretend as if news networks are endorsing their program, and they all use fake testimonials.

Everythign you see on those pages is fake, it is deigned to gain your trust so you buy. When you boil it down, it’s really that simple.

In any case, all of these pages are designed to lure people into a link posting scam which is not a real job, or business of any kind. They say you can make all kinds of crazy money, when in actual fact the only ones making money are the scammers behind it.

As I mentioned, they often take these pages down and replace them with a new version. So here’s the archive which they can never delete:

The Extent Of This Scam Is Shocking

It turns out the Home Job Placement scam has been running for years.

According to a 2011 FTC press release:

As alleged in the FTC’s complaint, Ivy Capital’s telemarketers called people who responded to e-mail and advertising about work-at-home or Internet business opportunities from companies such as Jennifer Johnson’s Home Job Placement Program and Brent Austin’s Automated Wealth System.

As you can see, this same program was once run by ‘Jennifer Johnson’. Also a fictional character.

Some of the sales material and other aspects have been swapped around as per usual, but it’s the same thing at it’s core. A link posting scam run by the same team of scammers.

This was part of an investigation in 2011 that revealed this exact program was responsible for ripping off more than $40 million from consumers. Since then, this has gone into the $100’s of millions.

I HIGHLY recommend reading my article about the Wealth Development Center where I show you how these scams are all connected, and why they should be avoided at all costs.

It’s Worse Than Losing 97 Bucks

Beyond losing your initial investment for what is (in most cases) a members area full of nothing, there’s more to be concerned about.

One of these is how the intend on renting and selling your personal information for profit:

Privacy Policy Spam

This is big business and it’s a big part of how they make their money.

Notice how they mention 37 Clicks in the privacy policy? This is because this is yet another version of this scam and one that has been running for years. Quite simply, they sometimes don’t bother swapping the fine print around from version to version.

The other, more sinister goal they have is to sell you high ticket coaching.

They they have teams of telemarketers who are tasked with ‘coaching’ you into buying more and more products. It is not uncommon for people to be losing upwards of $20,000 to this scam. Really.

Once they lure you into the $97 program, it’s all about getting you to upgrade to equally useless, yet much higher priced coaching. I recommend being extremely cautious paying for anything like this over the phone, since it can be near impossible to recover those funds once they are gone. They know this, and it’s why they make these deals over the phone.

Conclusion

If you’ve read this far, you have all you need to make an informed decision. What you decide to do is entirely your choice, but at least now you have the facts. If you are still in doubt, I recommend reading some of the articles I linked to above.

Either way, I don’t recommend this to anyone for any reason.

I can’t stand seeing people scammed by crap like this, because I know how it feels. It’s not just losing money that sucks, it’s how these scammers derail people from finding real ways to build an online business.

Thankfully though, not everything is a scam. By taking your time and doing your research, you can find legitimate ways to create an income online. It’s not magic though, like these people would have you believe.

It takes real work, and real effort if you want to make real money online. Period.

    • Hi Woranee,

      This is a review, so I do not own this program in any way, shape or form. In order to get a refund, you will need to contact the people you gave your money to. Good luck.
