Job scam quick guide: it's a scam if...

  • they want you to collect and forward money in any way (a "money mule" job). You'll wind up engaged in money laundering, personally defrauded via expertly forged cheques, money orders, etc, or defrauding someone else who pays for goods that never arrive.
  • they want you to receive packages and reship them somewhere else. The goods will have been obtained fraudulently, and they're just using you to make the shipping address appear local. You will be aiding fraud.
  • they want up-front payment (either to them or someone else) of any sort for anything before you can get the job. This is advance fee fraud: there is no job -- it's just a big con to extract money from you.
  • they want you to buy any kind of "membership" or "kit" in order to start. Forget it -- it's not a real job at all: they're trying to sell you something, and they're probably making a bunch of other false claims about it if they're pitching it as a "job".
  • it's a job offer, and it's spam. There are LOTS of these scams about, as you can see.

LHN Pro Builder

This looks pretty much like a textbook case of a pyramid scam, where money is made by persuading other people to buy into the system. As is typical for this kind of thing, the participants also resort to spamming, which is how I got this invitation in the first place. The tinyurl link in this message redirects to

This is not a scam, im making money from it right now and so are the active people in my downline. Stop calling things a scam before you do any proper research. The probuilder system is free, and we market health products, and we have been around for 8 years, so get your facts straight.

I am successful networker for the past 15 years And very successful at it. MLM Companies that have legitimate products, are not scam rather companies who promote their products with means of refferal marketing. Person getting involved needs to become familiar with marketing as a profession. I have checked the LHN and their probuilder system. It seems they have one of the better Plan in the industry.

I have been involved with this company for 3 months now and I am making more money than I have with any other company of it's kind. It is not even close to being a scam. The products are great, the system pays very well, and the checks are real. With any company of this kind you will have those who join and really could care less about how they get the word out. So please don't judge a company by one person's misuse of the system.

My opinion of LHN Pro Builder may improve when the "joebizness" link points to a page that says "this account has been terminated for spamming". I've received a number of "joebizness" related spams, and I have no particular desire to make the fine distinction between spammers who are outright scammers and spammers who are just plain obnoxious.

If you send spam, then you are clearly not a trustworthy person with whom to do business, and it casts the legitimacy of the business itself into doubt. It's up to the parent company to police the activities of their affiliates, or have their reputation tarnished by the spam.
