Have you been a Victim of Work-at-Home Scams?

Post by jortigas on Sat Jun 12, 2010 5:50 pm

Work-at-home scams are getting very difficult to identify with the sophisticated use of advertisements, and the internet but that doesn’t mean you can’t avoid them.

Scams like this started years ago with work like stuffing envelopes or assembling of certain products at home. Today, they are getting more sophisticated because they don’t only post advertisements to newspapers but the internet. They ask for set-up fees from applicants and keep the money. If you find sites that promise people they are going to make thousands in their first month, this may not be legit. Check the business bureau about their site’s reputation especially if they are asking about your social security number or credit card information.

Always research the company’s website because it should be a red flag if they don’t provide any contact information or company physical address. There are many job and career opportunities online that are legit. All you need is the patience to research for the right one. One of the best ways to spot work-at-home scams is if they ask you to purchase equipment or a starter kit and they allow you to start without any training.
