well ive been looking all over the place at differant work at home jobs online, and im a skeptical person by nature thank god (or i wouldve been in trouble long ago lol) but i knew there had to be draw backs and some how looking for a JOB i stummbled in here and figured i better read! well its been worth it and now i know im skeptical for good reasons :) I was let go at my work about a month ago. (basically they didnt want to deal with me and my kids) i have a 5year old and a 4month old (she was 13wks to the day when they let me go) and they knew i was planning on having at least one more child...and found a way to out me through no fault of my own! i had been working part time when i was suppose to be on maternity leave and i loved it! I asked to stay part time 8-12 to be with my kids and i could get my work done just fine (they said great, didnt have to pay me as much but i was still getting my work done) so all was fine and dandy for A FEW DAYS! then they decided that since i could do my whole job in 1/2 a day they wanted me to take a job opening in the office doing book keeping the other 1/2 a day (which isnt even CLOSE to a part time job!!!) and with no pay increase or NOTHING! they OFFERED me this as in a choice and i said i would if i was being told i had to but would rather not and i was told it was OK...well ne ways they let me go a couple weeks later..and i just got a denial notice for unemployment b/c it says i REFUSED WORK! im really upset i worked there almost 4years and they are trying to screw me KNOWING I HAVE A NEWBORN BASICALLY! but ne ways im really skeptical about ever working for ne one else ever again, i want to work from home and not really sure where to start! i have a ton of ideas. any advice on the unemployment would be GREAT, and the site has been really helpful MaaMaw :) thanks jen

FIB - Scams 101 - Ye Olde Archives is maintained with WebBBS 3.11.
| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
