AS the saying goes, "if it sounds to good…”, well it does of course. This is another online scam this time offering a job with Google without every leaving your home. The kits cost anywhere from $1.95-2.95 on these various sites that are popping up and once they have your account into they start billing you $70 a month. These offers have come across from email to Twitter links and the sites can appear very legit. If you see anything like this just hit DELETE!

Google has now opened it’s doors and will be hiring everyday people to work from the comfort of their own homes posting links. The way this works is Google will allow people to signup and receive a package which will contain all the step by step instructions to get setup from home.

This will allow Google to hire talent in places like Canada that would otherwise be unreachable and compensate them based on results on a long term basis.

What you need: A Computer, an Internet Connection and the desire to make a living working from home. No special skills are required other than knowing how to use a computer and navigate the internet.

In what appears to be a final move before the end the owner of PACE Airlines, William Rodgers Sr., suspended all operations citing an instance of vandalism to the car of Stuart Carnie, a top executive. After weeks and weeks of delayed or missing paydays and a layoff of as many as 215 this past Tuesday further troubles started this week with investigations by U.S. Department of Labor, the N.C. Employment Security Commission and N.C. Department of Insurance. The U.S. Department of Labor is looking into possible wage violations and the Fair Labor Standards Act while the N.C. Department if Insurance is looking into the failure of PACE Airlines to make premium payments to insurers for employee insurance when deductions from paychecks had been made for those cost.

The memo sent out to employees citied specifically the incident to Mr. Stuart’s car which was located at the Residence Inn on North Point:

"With consideration of everyone’s personal safety being first and foremost at all times, and not knowing exactly what party has perpetuated this personal attack on Mr. Carnie, or who might be next be attacked, all non-essential personnel will be relieved of their duties and responsibilities, effective immediately upon notice by their supervisor,"

The use of this “personal attack” as cause for the shutdown has been called into question by many of PACE’s employees on various Internet forums and one has to question this considering the “vandalism” was a broken passenger window and theft of a GPS unit left in the car. Of course North Point being North Point there were no less than a half dozen Police reports for the same area from Drug Arrest, Shoplifting and Police Warrant service. The “LARCENY FROM AUTO” one just one of many reports Winston-Salem Police filed in an area some would say has a history of such issues. In fact a similar crime occurred in May at the same address with exactly the same results, a broken passenger window and stolen GPS as well as in April a few doors down. Seems there may be a slight pattern here but I’m no crime expert, ha ha.

According to further reports all aircraft owned by PACE Airlines have been recalled to Winston-Salem except for two one of which is awaiting an FAA check while the other will return at the first of the week. Maintenance contracts with Continental Airlines have been cancelled along with multiple deals for various charters or aircraft contracts. Lastly FalconAir has posted a job listing for Aircraft Mechanics in Winston-Salem on the same day PACE more or less closed their doors, interesting.
