Kessinger Publishing Work at Home Scheme
I’ve received many, many complaints in the last three months about Kessinger Publishing. The latest one, today, had Kessinger asking an applicant to pay them $1,950 before beginning work!
They have branched out from a questionable reprinting service to a questionable work at home scheme.
Kessinger wants an applicant’s address before hiring and their bank account information.
They spin a strange tale about the prospective worker having to buy software and hardware from them. Hundreds to thousands of dollars worth. Really? Really?
I would be extremely cautious; read my Kessinger page here before you deal with them. (internal link) NB: I updated that page on March 26, 2021.
Have you been burned? Let me know. I’ll forward your correspondence to any interested agency.
But first, use government tools like these. This is from the Federal Trade Commission:
