Report Filed: Vobis.pl Vobis Hire translators and representatives and trick them into processing payments for fraudulent transactions!!
At the end of July I received an email from company vobis.pl, advertising online work as a corrector for texts. The text contained no formatting, pictures, or official company graphics, but when I googled Vobis.pl, a Polish auctioning website (like Ebay) came up. So it seemed legit, and I was looking for online work, so I emailed back with my interest. They replied with details about the position: I would be correcting messages to customers, website content, and other text; I would receive $5 for each KB of text and would be paid monthly; all payments would be received through PayPal. Again, there was no formatting or official company content, and the text had some errors, as would be expected from someone who speaks English as a second language. Shortly after, I started receiving emails with the texts to be corrected, and they all seemed legit: some were replies to customers about order questions, others were messages to representatives explaining how to process payments. I would correct the text and respond within a day. Afterwards, they would reply with how much money I had currently earned. Also, I usually sent my emails in the evening (Eastern time), and they would reply early morning the next day (anywhere from 1 to 6 am), which seemed to correspond with the company being six hours ahead in European time. After correcting about 5 texts (so about 5 days later), they emailed me saying they no longer had need for text correctors, but were looking for representatives (alot of their texts which I corrected were messages to “current”” representatives
