Dear All,

A few months ago, while browsing through KOG, I found an add about a company called "Data Entry Portal" ( and I´d like to know if maybe one of you has tried it as I´d like to recommended it to a non-translator friend who is in need of a job.

However, as there are so many scams on internet lately, I wanted to ask for references before I tell my friend to go for it.

If you have any information about it, I´d like to hear it.
Thank you for your time.

Updated envelope-stuffing? Oct 21, 2008

Just taking a fast look at the site, there seemed little difference in content from the classic "Stufgf envelopes-at-home" scam.
Turns out it is the 21st century version:

Just like the 19th century "Spanish Prisoner" now has e-mails from Nigeria, and MacKay's tulipmania and Mississippi Bubble became the junk financing and "strip" and "strap" derivatives that have led to the current "financial crisis", there is little new under the sun.
