The legitimate way to do this is NOT to try to get somebody to email you for details of your particular company. That's recruitment. If all you are doing is describing your job, that should be possible without either referring to your company or trying to get somebody to email you. Other WAHMS say "I run a home daycare" or "I am a medical transcriptionist at home" or some such.

It only stays on the up and up if there is obviously no attempt to get a poster to connect in any way with the company you work for (even in a veiled way by saying "email me for details").

A suspect answer would be to try to get the person to email you for more term-paper writing details (it would be suspected that you were running one of those term paper mills that sells them to students). And a TOS violation would be posting a link to your term paper mill website. So that was actually a good example.

That reason ALONE confirms the shady nature of the business.
