Monday, November 13, 2017 Sell Your Diabetic Test Strips

This website tells people that they will buy their unused diabetic test strips. They will pay for the shipping and then you send them in. After they receive them you are suppose to be paid either by PayPal or by check. The problem is, people are not getting their payments. There have been a couple people who have claimed to receive checks that have bounced.

People who are sending in diabetic test strips usually are on fixed incomes and need this money. Taking advantage of people like this is unbelievable and should be stopped immediately. This company virtually has no way for you to contact them. Their 888 number goes to a voicemail box that is completely full so leaving a message isn't possible. Emails that are sent to them go unanswered as well.

They have a Facebook Page that they have deleting comments from of people asking where their money is. From the sounds of it they were once sending people money but something happened. Stay far away from this company!

Harvest Moon Loans

Harvest Moon Loans is a company located at 8 Crestwood Road Boulevard, CA 91905. There website is They are offering loans that you will end up paying SEVERAL times that amount. For instance on their website it states that if you take out a $200 loan you will end up paying $111.42 every 2 weeks for 10 pay periods. Therefore when its all said and done that $200 loan will end up costing you $1,114.20 (assuming you don't miss a payment or have to pay less then the $111, if that's the case it will end up costing more). 

This company has several complaints with the BBB and on These complaints all seem to be the same thing. They are misleading customers into thinking that they only need to make a few payment. It turns out those payments go towards the interest and not even the principal balance. Customers have also expressed concerns when see the same amount come out every 2 weeks for 3 months. LONG after the amount they borrowed and any legit interest should have been paid. 

This is a company that is an example of everything bad with these payday loans. This company even seems to go the extra mile into ripping people off. I have never seen anything like this with these insanely high fees and just the fact that you end up paying over $1100 for a $200 loan making your payments on time should be illegal. From what I have heard this company is also taking money from people in states that Harvest Moon Loan isn't licensed to do business in such as Washington State

People who need a payday loan normally don't have good credit or they have no credit. They are living paycheck to paycheck and when something comes up that is the only way they can borrow money is through a payday lender. Harvest Moon will gladly lend money because they will make so much more off of you. Harvest Moon will then keep deducting the money and just beating someone down until they have no choice but to take out another loan. If you need a loan please take my advice read the fine print and stay far away from Harvest Moon Loans.

Compensation (419 Scam)

This email came from "Dr. Mousse Omar" He wants me to get in touch with his secretary so I can get a large sum of money. Well the problem with that is they want me to get in touch with them so they can ask me to wire them a "fee" so they can release the funds. Once you send a fee they will keep after you to send more and more until you have nothing left or you stop responding to them. 

Dear Friend,

I'm sorry but happy to inform you about my success in getting those funds transferred under the cooperation of a new partner from Vietnam, though I tried my best to involve you in the business but God decided the whole situations. 
Presently I’m in Vietnam for investment projects with my own share of the total sum. Meanwhile, I didn't forget your past efforts and attempts to assist me in transferring those funds despite that it failed us somehow.

Now contact my secretary in Burkina Faso her name is Mrs.Vanessa Willner  on her e-mail address below Ask her to send you the total of $800,000.00 Eight Hundred Thousand United State Dollars which I kept for your compensation,

For all the past efforts and attempts to assist me in this matter. I appreciated your efforts at that time very much. So feel free and get in touched with my secretary Mrs.Vanessa Willner and instruct her where to send the amount to you.

In my moment, I’m very busy here because of the investment projects which I and the new partner are having at hand, finally, remember that I had forwarded instruction to the secretary on your behalf to receive that money, so feel free to get in touch with Mrs.Vanessa Willner   she will send the amount to you without any delay ok. Extend my greetings to your family.

My Best regards
yours brother

Work at home freelance jobs paying less than $1 an hour

There are companies out there that hire people to work from home. These jobs appeal to a lot of people because they are non phone jobs. However, they pay per task and the tasks are very low paying as low as $.01 a task! The task takes a minute or more to do so we are talking $.60 an hour. This is extremely low and should be against the law to pay this. Even in another country this wage isn't enough to live off of. I looked at the wages in the Philippines where the wages are much lower and a call center job with no experience or education even pays $1.95 an hour. 

People that are doing the work from home are the backbone of the companies and to pay people making your business a lot of money nowhere near minimum wage is horrible. There needs to be some kind of law in place that prevents this. There are people out there that are doing these very very low paying jobs because they are desperate. They need something to be able to get some food or get some gas so they can apply for a job that pays more. You can make more money going out on the street and holding a sign. 

Lets all try and make a point with these companies and not do work for them. Eventually they are either going to go out of business or need to increase their pay. I can mention several companies that pay this low but I won't because this is about companies as a whole not targeting 1 or 2. The only people who would defend them for paying this low are the ones that say this is only meant for extra change and not to live off of. The problem is in the society we are in right now people are doing this for some kind of living because they can't find anything else or they can't work a brick and mortar job.

I am Rev. Sister Zeynep  Younan, served at Cathedral of the Holy Spirit, Istanbul Turkey, I am 63 years old suffering from chronic urinary tract cancer. From all indications, my condition is really deteriorating and is quite obvious that i may not live more than two months after my next surgery in scheduled to be held in UK which My personal physician told me that I may not live for more than 2 months and I am so scared about it. I have no child of mine since my spiritual obligation does not permit me to marry.

But through this wonderful Bible verses, Psalms 119:116 ….Uphold me according unto thy word, that I may live, and let me not be ashamed of my hope. Psalms 138: 7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou will revive me......psalms 41:1 Blessed is he that considered the poor, the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.

Two of my favorite verses: Philippians 2:27: For indeed he was sick nigh unto death, but God had mercy on him & that on him only, but on me also, less I should have sorrow upon sorrow.( I always say this in
my mind)

So, I now decide to donate all my life savings, which turns out to be at the sum of  $8,150,000.00USD . (eight million and one hundred and fifty thousand dollar) to you, use 45% of this fund for your personal needs and the remaining 55% for humanitarian purpose by establishing a foundation in your country under my name, so as to immortalize my name.

This money is deposited in a reliable bank in Turkey, Presently, I have informed my Attorney, about my decision in WILLING this fund to you, you are to get back to me immediately if you are interested in carrying out this task, so that I will instruct you on how to get in contact with my attorney and my account officer.

Lastly, I know I have never meet you, but in other to fulfill this which borders me most, I prayed and fasted with my spiritual adviser, Rev. Fr. Ediz Derya and choose your address and my mind tells me to inform you about this, Itis also good to let you know that I shall bear the cost of transferring this fund to you, and I hope you act sincerely, please get back to me immediately via my private email address
( with the following information.

YOUR  NAME:………………?

NOTE: I shall bear the cost of transferring this money to you; all I need is your sincerity. God bless you.
