Ads ran at Craigs list for employment opportunities. They offer work as independent contractors. In my case it was replacing power cords for factory recall. They will send you a packet with all the paperwork you need to get started. Contract, W9 and a form to receive pay. After a phone call they told me to register on line then I could see what work that is available. Well at the very end you need to subsribe to their service at a price. This will give them:
Social Security Number
Bank Account Number
Plus you are required to sign a poorly written contact.
This all required without even knowing if there is work available. Smells don't ya think?
