    On 21/5/2013 I applied for a Data Entry Work from Home job, I paid £20 as a one off fee to join and to receive the training pack. After constantly sending them emails regarding the training pack, I got 15 emails from a Russell James and 3 from a Mark Springett saying I would receive my training pack within days. The date is now 23/12/ 2013 and still have not received anything. I want to let people know this is a scam and not to fall for it like I have.

  3. Badger January 28, 2014 at 2:05 AM Reply

    I feel like a div but I fell for this too! You’re not alone. Around 60/70 emails between Mark Springett, Russell James & Gerald Bailey (expect all the same person).
    Been emailing them 2/3 times a day for a week to get my money back & will continue to do so until Ive been refunded

    • Adriana January 28, 2014 at 1:40 PM Reply

      I doubt you will get your money back as I now think they have changed their Businesslink on- line details. I have noticed on the Data Entry Work From Home Website that it is under a different name. They are still advertising from Woodgreen.
      I tried to reply saying they are Fraud but to get through you have to send your CV and I am not doing that again. You probably wont hear from them again.
      Once they have got your money they are laughing all the way to the bank. Let me know if you do get your money back. I wish you luck.

    They are advertising again, I think

    I’m so thankful that I found your comments. I e-mailed the jobseekers@businesslinksite.co.uk and have had return e-mails from Russell James.

    I had an e-mail today saying I have been accepted and please confirm but was still concerned about the £20 I am expected to pay upfront.

    I started surfing then, to find any more info on scams and read that no legitimate company would ask for money upfront, especially without interviewing you so that they know it is you doing the training and not someone else. And on finding this website and your comments, I will definitely not be proceeding.
    Thank you for taking the time to write your experiences and stopping someone else falling victim.

    I applied for this job, but the second I read that I had to pay a £20 payment fee, I realised it was a fake. You should never have to pay for a job or the training involved.

  7. Laura Cheesman September 29, 2014 at 3:23 PM Reply

    I very nearly fell for this scam myself! Things started to sound fishy when asked for a £20 fee, the website was ‘under construction’ and Russell James wouldn’t provide me with a contact number. His emails were also full of incorrect spellings and bad grammer and there was also no signature giving any busines details on the emails.
    Thank goodness for this website confirming it’s a scam! I’ve emailed him saying never to contact me again!

  8. Debbie October 20, 2014 at 2:51 AM Reply

    I too found this site in the nick of time. After going back to Russell James and telling that it is clear that the job offer is a scam, he sent me a rather long email giving the reasons for the £20 fee. He said that ‘time is money’ and that they had wasted time training people who the receive the training package and then do not go for the job. It covers their admin time apparently! He also said that by training, even if I decided that the job was not for me, I coul recoup my £20 by doing just the one assignment. It actually sounds very plausible but I don’t think I will be going for it. I’m sure it is a scam.

  9. Mel November 25, 2014 at 4:28 AM Reply

    I fully agree with everything that has been written so far. I applied for this job last week, in order to supplement my income. However, I noted that they are using a free “Wix” .com site to try and establish their credentials. If they were genuine and have been operating for a long time as implied in Russell James’ email, then they should have an established website and should have registered in Companies House as they are reportedly to be a Limited Company, which is not the case. That is why I shall not be responding to them and blocking their emails. Luckily, I did not make any payments and shall not do so.
    This is a big Fat SCAM!!!!

    Thank god I read all these comments as I was about to sign up but I won’t anymore.

  11. Wendy December 9, 2015 at 1:01 AM Reply

    This SCAM is doing the rounds again so please be wary when applying for a job. If it’s too good to be true it usually isn’t! I work for a digital dictation company and you would never be asked to pay anything for this type of work. The only thing you may have to pay out for is for virus checking programme if you don’t already have this on your pc. Scam businesslink.Co.UK russell22@businesslinksite.co.uk

    • Sarah July 12, 2016 at 9:00 AM Reply

      Hello Wendy, Can I ask if the digital dictation position you have is a home-based position please? If so, do you have any advice regarding how to find the legitimate positions? Any help would be much appreciated.
      Thanks

  12. Helen May 18, 2016 at 3:00 PM Reply

    Thanks so much for these comments as I was going to apply. Heaven knows why as I previously applied for similar on another site and paid £25.99 which they said I would get back as soon as I’d completed my first job – only thing is no jobs in this country even though said it was work from home. Don’t know how these people live with themselves and get away with this sort of thing.

    Thank you all for your comments as i recieved the email this morning and was actually considering it; i recieved the email from russell22@businesslinksite.co.uk so please be aware.

  14. kevin July 1, 2016 at 8:45 AM Reply

    I have started getting emails from Russell James russell22@businesslinksite.co.uk querying me about a typist job and the chance of me going for it was very high until I came across here. The scam is still going on.

  15. jody July 18, 2016 at 5:42 AM Reply

    Oh my! I feel so lucky to find the comments here. It felt so weird when I received the email and asked to pay 20 pounds for training. Now all the comments here have assured me that it is a scam!! Wow….. Oh my be careful people.

  16. Michael Bernardo August 11, 2016 at 6:02 PM Reply

    we knew from the very start that this is a fake. but we try to figure thing out. tried to ask for skype id. but they said their not using skype. then the time we said we are interested. we ask for social media. bank details instead. because on bank details true information will show. but after we ask that they never reply.

    i hope we somehow catch this stupid bastards. is there anyway we can report this to the police or something
