Preventing Work at Home Scams

Not all work-at-home jobs are scams and it is important for you to be able to determine legitimate opportunities from the scams. A typical "work-at-home" scam promises big paychecks for working in the comfort of your home. The employer will require an upfront payment or a subscription fee in order to receive the instructions for starting your home-based business or as a condition of your employment with the "work-at-home" company.

While the lure of easy and quick money may be enticing, the only thing you are often left with are poor instructions (if you receive them at all) and an empty bank account. Before beginning any work-at-home venture we encourage you to fully research the company and the work you will be required to perform. Search the Internet and the Better Business Bureau for reports on the company.
