For every legitimate work-from-home job, there are 60 scams, according to a study conducted by the job site Rat Race Rebellion.
Obviously, work-at-home jobs have come a long way from those old “make money stuffing envelopes” ads. But for anybody looking to earn a living without leaving home has to be very careful.
Do your homework on a potential work-at-home employer. Make sure that the company is established. If you can’t find evidence that it has a physical address and sells a product or service, it’s best to avoid it.
Be sure to track down contact info too, and test it out. Many con artists pretend to be working for household-name corporations, either directly or as sub-contractors.
As with any job, there should be an application and probably an interview: Anybody who is legitimately looking to hire someone wants to meet—or at least talk to—applicants.
Lastly, you shouldn’t incur any out-of-pocket expenses to be hired.
If a work-from-home opportunity requires you to pay a fee up-front or buy a “start-up kit” or make any other sort of sizable cash outlay, then it’s probably a scam.
You will, however, most likely need to invest in a fast, reliable internet connection, if you don’t already have one, and a high-quality audio headset.
