NorthAmeriCorp is a fake work from home company that claims to offer people ‘flex jobs’.
These jobs supposedly pay you upwards of $27.25 per hour to “copy and paste stuff” online. They also say that everything is free too, which is simply not true.
So what’s this really about then?
As I explain in this review, their true agenda is selling you anti-virus software. This is the only way you can access the ‘jobs’ they offer and it’s how they stand to gain.
Read on for the full review.
I first came across NorthAmeriCorp via instantonlinejobs.com. The video on this site is presented by ‘Trevor Harris’, who says you’ll make money processing simple worksheets from home…
Within the video Trevor repeatedly stresses that these are “real jobs”. Jobs that allow you to make money immediately just for doing simple tasks.
However, I wrote an article about worksheet processing and found that they’re NOT legit jobs at all. I recommend reading this as I go into detail as to what they’re really about.
Anyway, if you click on the button below the video, you will need to submit your name and email address. Which means you are going into his email list.
From there you’re taken to the next page, where Trevor ‘explains’ what all of this is about. Apparently, the tasks are so simple all you need to do is copy and paste stuff. I mean literally, he says there is nothing more to it than that…
Earlier Trevor said you earn $27.25 per hour for doing this. But later in the video this changes to “$15 to $25 per assignment”.
Then, later when you land on the NorthAmeriCorp website, this changes again to “between $12.33 to $27.90 per hour”.
Which is it!?
I don’t think it matters really. Because the truth is no one is paying you this much to copy and paste stuff. Not a chance.
Anyways, he goes on for almost 10 minutes and in all that time doesn’t really explain anything. It’s just a pitch to get you to click the link below the video.
If you do, you are taken to the ‘NorthAmeriCorp’ website where you discover what’s really going on here.
The Hidden Agenda- Selling You Anti-Virus Software
The final page is on the NorthAmeriCorp website itself. Which contains a video and starts out by saying “thanks for submitting your application”. Which is odd considering there was no application.
Anyways this page outlines three steps you need to take to access your job. They use a lot of marketing fluff so here’s the breakdown of what they’re saying in plain english…
- Buy their anti-virus software through their affiliate link
- Email NorthAmeriCorp proof of your purchase
- Wait for an email about how to access your job
This is where alarm bells should be ringing for anyone that has reached this page.
The way these people gain from you is by promoting an anti-virus software. They are affiliates for various anti-virus softwares, which means if you buy through their link- they earn a commission.
For me it was ‘BullGuard’ but I tested it several times with different browsers and it changes. They were also promoting McAfee at one point.
If you look closely at the link at the top of the above screen capture, you’ll notice it changes before you reach the BullGuard site. This is because it’s an affiliate link that is redirecting you to the sales page.
Here’s what I mean…
- You’re on the NorthAmeriCorp site
- You click on ‘get your software which is an affiliate link
- You are then redirected to the sales page for the antivirus software
- If you buy, these people profit from you
To be clear, there’s nothing wrong with promoting software as an affiliate.
Not at all. Affiliate marketing is a legitimate business model (in and of itself). I do this myself so I know how it works and I know when someone’s promoting something.
Either way… there IS a problem when someone promotes something it in this manner. This is downright misleading. Plain and simple.
Will They Really Reimburse You? Not Likely
The company promises to pay you back 100% of the costs in buying the anti-virus software. Just as soon as you get “inside the training center” of course…
I’m sorry, but this is almost certainly BS.
How do I know?
For starters, it just plain doesn’t make sense. Why ask you to pay if they’re just going to reimburse you anyway? Wouldn’t a real company supply this to an employee? I think so.
Second, why would any legitimate company hand out free anti-virus subscriptions before even screening the potential employees? This makes even less sense.
Third, no legitimate affiliate program I’ve seen, allows their affiliates to ‘incentivize’ customers in this way. This is never an acceptable way to promote an offer. People should buy because they want the product. Not because someone’s going to pay them back for it.
Fourth, if they did reimburse you, then how are they making money from you? They sure as heck are not doing this for nothing.
I guess you could argue it’s worth the risk if you need the software anyway. Fair enough. I mean it may be a good product in and of itself. But I do not recommend buying in the hopes of getting your money back. That’s for sure.
Who’s Running The Show Anyway?
The people (or person) running NorthAmeriCorp are affiliates. They do not disclose who they are anywhere on the website (northamericorp.com). And they use an anonymous domain registration too.
I was also unable to find any info on Trevor Harris either. So I don’t know who he is. Turns out his YouTube channel is run by ‘Sandy Sauve’ but that’s about all I could find…
I have no idea who Sandy is either or what part she plays.
Also worth noting is how similar NorthAmeriCorp is to Federal Account Recovery. A website that also claims to offer people ‘legit flex jobs’. And a site that also talks about processing worksheets from home.
Chances are these sites are run by the same people.
Although FAC does work a little differently. It’s about posting worksheets in (along with $5 per worksheet) in the hopes of getting paid. Except no one’s getting paid anything.
Verdict- Is NorthAmeriCorp a Scam?
NorthAmeriCorp shows all the signs of being a scam. Here’s a summary of why I’m not buying into NorthAmeriCorp’s story…
- Making money online is not as simple as ‘copying and pasting’ stuff
- There is NO online job of any kind
- Worksheet processing is fake
- Their true agenda is misleading you into buy anti-virus software
- Promise to ‘reimburse you’ after you buy- which is not true
There’s probably more red flags here but I think this covers the main ones.
The bottom line is they prey on unsuspecting people who want to work from home. They tell you what you want to hear, while in reality, they’re promoting an anti-virus software.
It’s not wrong to promote stuff. But there is when you trick people into buying who think they’re getting a job. This is highly unethical at best.
It is possible to earn money working from home. But sites like NorthAmeriCorp are not about trying to help you. Rather, their true intention is tricking you into buying something.
What you decide to do is up to you. But I personally don’t need to buy an anti-virus subscription to know that NorthAmeriCorp is full of it. I’m guessing that if you’ve read this far, you’re smart enough to know this too.
The truth is, most people fail to make money online.
Because despite the wealth of opportunity that currently exists, there's too many fake "gurus" selling bunk programs that over promise and under deliver. It's a wild west.
The good news is, it IS possible for the average person to create a successful business online. I know because I've done it myself. Here's how I went from zero to $8K plus per month online.
