About a month ago (May 8 to be exact), I applied for a position as a proofreader for Relatieplanet International. This was the job ad that caught my attention:
Of course, I researched the company. No one had anything negative to say about them. Everything seemed legit.
After sending my resume and three references, I was hired. I had to sign a contract stating that I would put forth the amount of effort required to complete the tasks and that I would receive payment after 21 days of work. I was getting paid $5 per edited kb, which was around $20 an hour for me. Of course, that was a red flag. How could they pay me so much?
