I'm not sure this is the best place to post this, but here goes.
In the last couple of days I have run across a job offer that appears to me to be a scam. I had the idea that it would be helpful for me to write a Hub to share with others the clues that helped me come to that conclusion.
But, of course, if I do that I am also educating future scammers on what not to do to tip people off. Do any of you have any suggestions on whether I should write a Hub like that and/or the best way to go about it?
write a hub, people at least would be aware of the fact that they can be ripped off. I was offered bribe and after not receiving that I was threatened by terrorists couple of years ago to stop investigating. I was trying to work for a newspaper that time. I eventually completed my job and submitted the report but the news was never published. Please, write the hub.
Thanks for the encouragement. The story I have to share is nowhere nearly as significant as what you describe, and I hope you have written (or will write) a Hub about your experience!
Yes, I probably will write this story. But I admit (I just had this new thought -> ) I had forgotten to check it out on snopes.com and it's possible that it may already appear there. If it's not, though, I will write it up.
You take the chance of tipping off the scammers, but it is best to warn others overall of the scam regardless. Scammers are always evolving their schemes anyways.
I am planning on a writing a hub on scammers, yes, scammers will get smarter, but people on the whole are very silly to be taken in or very uneducatated on scammers and how they work.
You can write about it at least people searching for the product + scam in search engine may see your post and be better informed.
And I don't think scammers are getting wiser strategically speaking. I mean the "too good to be true" is still their principle luring people to buy their product.

There have been so many times in the past 2 years that I've been touched by a comment from either another Hubber or from our online readers. Today is no exception. I was reminded of how rewarding writing online can be in ways other than a Google Adsense check or Amazon check. I'll...

Did you come across any Hubber - especially someone less well-known - that you find interesting? If so, please introduce them here by writing a review.Take your time, make a little effort. Remember, this is also your opportunity to show off your own writing skills.

I don't know about anyone else but I cannot stand it when you go to read something only to find it riddled with grammar errors and spelling errors.I'll give on the occasional misspelled word, we all do it once in a while. However, I absolutely hate it when I can't make sense of what is...

Hey there Hubbers - a happy Thursday to ya'. Once I get caught up with the 1,000,000 things that I need to shove into my brain this week, I was going to put together my next Hub(big #2!). So, I was wondering if any of you are getting ready to write up a new Hub and if you are, what are you going to...

Are there any taboo topics to write a hub about?I'm not talking about violations of the TOS. Rather, are there things we should never write a hub on? Things that could hurt us in Google and spread to all our other hubs?
