Of course there are. Thousands upon thousands of people work from their home every day and not just in entrepreneurial ventures. Sometimes it’s for family reasons, sometimes for health reasons, but what ever your personal reason for working from home, navigating those waters can be difficult and expensive. But if working from home interests you, read on.
There are lots of work from home scams
First, lets discuss what isn’t a legitimate work-from-home opportunity. Any “opportunity” that insists that you fork over your credit card or banking information in order to receive leads or wants you to pay for “supplies only they can provide” is sure to leave you with an empty bank account or a hefty credit card bill. Don’t do it. The only money being made is the money transferring from your pocket to theirs. You’ll wind up “working from home” to get your money back!
If you DO find a work-from-home opportunity (online or otherwise) that looks interesting, don’t hesitate to check them out with the Better Business Bureau or better yet, a search engine. Enter the name of the business and then the word “scam” and see what comes up. Realize that not every business with the word “scam” added as a keyword is actually a scam. Sometimes disgruntled employees or customers will resort to a scorched earth approach just because they didn’t get a 50 cent raise or a 50% discount, so read these articles and postings with a grain of salt but DO read them. See if what is written sounds reasonable or if the poster is just off their rocker.
