Home Employment Agency, AKA Austion Employment Training Institute
Is it for real? I don't know. I read their stuff. They report to give you training to enable you to list stuff for other companies on Ebay. They want $59.90 total for a sign up fee. I've been scammed several times and am leary of this one too. If it sounds too good to be true, then it is and stay away .. that's what I've always heard. Supposedly they provide a platform for you to search other companies who want stuff posted on Ebay, and you pick what you want to post for who. It almost sounds legit.

This company charges an upfront fee of $47 + 9.95 shipping and handling for a series of training lessons on how to become an "auction listing agent." Rather than an offer of employment, the company promotes the process of using a wholesaler to obtain discounted goods,and flip them for a profit on Ebay. Participants are directed to join a popular wholesale buying service which is an additional cost. Participants do not get paid simply for listing items. They get paid only if the item sells.

We advise against sending money to companies making these kind of offers. Most advertise on the Internet, via email, or in the help wanted sections of newspapers and other publications. The companies placing the ads are not hiring anyone. Their actual business is deceptive advertising designed to entice the public to send fees to get started. Addresses given are usually mail drops, advertised phone numbers reach recordings and calls are not returned, and no local phone numbers are listed. Most work-at-home companies advertise in states other than where they are located so as to avoid prosecution.

Complaints about other companies engaging in similar types of businesses generally allege that once money is sent, respondents fail to receive the promised employment. Some complain that the company does nothing more than advise them to place the same kind of ad in their own local papers. In other cases, customers receive nothing from the company. Most of these offers are made in conjunction with a money-back guarantee, but our experience is that few customers are able to obtain refunds despite the guarantee.
