Beware of social media scams

Many people are falling victim to scams that promise money for
twittering. Recent schemes involve companies promising to pay Twitter
users hundreds of dollars a day to tweet after they sign up for a free
training kit, which the Better Business Bureau said ends up sucking
away a hefty monthly payment. The bureau said some companies have a
presence on Twitter itself, but all of them use email and websites to
attract customers.

The bureau warns job seekers to be wary of claims that they can earn
substantial paychecks simply by tweeting from home. Websites asking
for money upfront for a tweeting "position" should also be avoided,
the bureau said.
