|Since I asked the question earlier about work at home scams, I thought I would post thirteen tips for avoiding work at home scams!
- Big Profits! Don’t ever believe that you will make big profits right away. Every job takes time and patience!
- Before your sign up, ask around. Is there people really willing to buy your product?
- Join a Work at Home Forum. Ask others about the work at home job and their experiences.
- Don’t stuff envelopes! This is just a scheme to get your money!
- Do your research. Check with the Better Business Bureau.
- Read, read, read. Before you pay any money read the terms and conditions first.
- Not all legit work at home jobs are free. You may have to spend money for a kit, website or other material. Just make sure
you know what you are buying!
- Most emails about work at home jobs are scams. Again, do your research!
- Are there any legal requirements? Jobs such as medical billing may require you to be licensed.
- Do they have a refund policy? They should!
- Be wary of claims of “inside” information. This usually indicates a scam
- Many legitimate work at home jobs have uplines. Be wary if the money you are paying is going directly to your upline and you are required to recruit more people in order to make money. This is a pyramid scheme!
- “No Experience Necessary” is a common scam theme. There should be some kind of training involved to help you with your work at home business.
