A Dangerous Similarity +

Vector Group Inc. versus Vector Marketing Corporation. A questionable job offer compared to a legitimate job of a questionable nature.

If you remember I blogged about the Vector Group Inc here. A sweet offer that borders on being a scam. Whereas Vector Marketing Corp's offer is from the direct sales firm that markets Cutco Cutlery®; an excellent product although a bit pricey.

I am now wondering if Vector Group Inc. is trying to piggy-back on the name attempting to catch people unaware. In my opinion this shows the importance of doing your homework when considering any job offer.


Received this little gem in my e-mail, notice any problems with this:
