    Well, when I was a proofreader/copyeditor for a company, I had to carry stacks of thick files around, which I think could get that heavy. Maybe that’s a factor?

    I bet it’s a warning sign of “There’s more to this job than writing,” though. :)

    The ads with “lift 15-35 pounds” is more likely a shipping scam, relating to credit card fraud. The perps scam on freelance writers because they now they work at home.
    The job is to called a shippper: Open packages sent via UPS, FEDEX and some times Express Mail. Then, repackage and ship Express mail to Russia or Ukraine.
    The perps are easy to spot with incorrectly spelled words and the importance of mailing the packages right away.
    The credit card fraud is the product purchased online and then shipped to your home with your address,but another person’s name on the address (not yours).
    Two of the perps have been caught. But, it is happening throughout the States.
    The key point is “Why would someone need to repackage product to send to Russia or Ukraine?”
    The perps promise high pay and bonuses, which you will not see. UPS has a shipping fraud page explaining this in details.
    Also, any home that is receiving packages not in the addressee’s name is report by the UPS driver to their fraud department.
    If you are not sure and still think the scam is legit, google Russian Federation shipping scam.

      That’s awful. But yeah, those ads are ridiculous. Thanks for letting us know about this scam, Kenna. I am sure everyone appreciates being informed.

    Yeah I love to write, and i have been doing it ever since the age of fifteen. My dream is to become a published writer. I am not trying to be another Zane Or Allison Hobbs, whose writing I find spellbounding! This has been my dream for many years, to take readers in another world. I want to be published! I want to live my dream.

    Maybe they’re looking for parents of toddlers and preschoolers. 😉 I don’t qualify any more, as mine is now closing in on 50 lbs.
