zveloLABS® researchers recently identified numerous, fictitious 7 News websites promoting work-at-home jobs. These bogus news sites unethically target stay-at-home moms, and falsely promise the discovery of a newfound money-making path in life. Considering the natural appeal of making an honest buck, while being loving care providers at home, it’s certainly easy to understand how unsuspecting mothers could fall for such “recession busting” opportunities.
