  • If your paying a fee they are fake. Don't do it. I sent in my money to one of those stupid things and they took it..and that's as far as it went.

  • A Virtual Assistant (VA) is, in most cases, an entrepreneur who works from their home office. A virtual assistant usually has had experience working in the real business world as an administrative assistant, office manager, paralegal, etc. Virtual assistants provide administrative, secretarial, and clerical support, as well as creative and/or technical services for a client.
