I hate scammers and unfortunately there are far too many of them around. David Hobart from Purecontent has contacted me to help him get the word out about this one, and I am happy to oblige. People who work for this company are not required to download this software. Please e-mail [email protected] if you are contacted by this person.
We have become the latest target of one of the many Online Criminals. An advert was placed by someone pretending to be an employee of Purecontent who purported to be attempting to sign up new writers. Why you may ask yourself ? I ask myself the same question. These people are out to cause as much aggravation for everyone as possible. This instance appears to be an attempt at identity theft. I have pasted the email below for your information. If you have received such a mail it is NOT from us at Purecontent. As you all know we take the security of our writers and clients very seriously. We would never ask for sensitive/personal information over a messenger client. Please be vigilant and report any suspicious emails to me personally at [email protected] This has been reported to the appropriate authorities so hopefully the perpetrator will be caught and stopped.
Thanks for taking the time to show us what you’ve got. Your resume, references, and examples are right up the alley of what we’re looking for in a content writer, and we think you would make a great addition to our content writing team. Please follow the instructions below to get started:
We expect our writers to be communicative, and professional at all times. Every member of our team is required to use Digsby Instant Messaging (download here), this allows each and every one of our staff and clients to keep in close contact with one another. We use this instead of AIM, Pidgin or Trillian because of its 128 bit encryption Digsby is not an option, it is required if you want to work with us.
Once you have downloaded it, send me an IM through Digsby to get your first assignment and setup your payment preferences (paypal or check).

I am sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused and thanks for all the help we have already had trying to track this con man down.
