Stripes39 / Possible Freelance Writing Scam
This is an Internet Content and Marketing company that I believe to be scamming writers as a legitimate freelance writing job. Now I'm not positive about this, and if I'm wrong I'll talk this down, but I'm pretty sure they're scamming writers. They have thier job ad continously posted all over the country week after week. That's the first sign secondly. Secondly, I applied for a job with them and got a reply back almost instantly. Which is the second major sign that this job might be [censored]. Because that never happens.
So when they got back to me they gave me this really long and drawn out writing practice test that would have equaled $60-$80 of work. They wanted two long ### 800 and 600 essays, which is completely unreasonable and ridicilous making someone applying for a job do that much work just for the application. Also, right in the email they say they will let you know if you got the job within 24 hours.
Well needless to say I never heard back from them. I even emailed the guy who emailed me back at first no problem when I had a question, now he won't return my email. If you apply for a job with this company and you get some 4 page ridicilous writing application, they are most likely just going to keep your work, possibly rephrase some of it and pass it off as thier own. That way they don't have to pay actual writers for thier hard work, they can just trick them into writing it for free.
If this isn't fake i'll take this down, but people like this make me sick and don't think I won't ever be out in Seattle some time soon and come out and see whats going on and at least get my $60-$80 in time I wasted writing your stupid application [censored]...I'm out!!!
