Signs of a Work at Home Scamer

Real work at home opportunities are abundant. But, the Internet has become a breeding ground for get-rich-quick marketing schemes. Don’t become another victim. Scams can also be an issue when looking for jobs that don’t involve working at home. Some Job sites also tries to police the listings, but most of the time, it’s hard to catch all the bad listings in a timely manner. Be careful when reviewing postings to make sure that you’re not taken advantage of by unscrupulous “work at home” job posters.

A Work-at-Home Scheme Promoter will:

  • Never offer you regular salaried employment.
  • Promise you huge profits and big part-time earnings.
  • Use personal testimonials but never identify the person so that you could check with them.
  • Require money for instructions or merchandise before telling you how the plan operates.
  • Assure you of guaranteed markets and a huge demand for your handiwork.
  • Tell you that no experience is necessary.
  • Take your money and give you little or nothing in return except heartbreak and grief.

Avoiding Fraud
There is no substitute for closely examining any offer which promises or guarantees income from work-at-home programs. If it sounds too good to be true, chances are it’s a scam.

Consider it a warning sign if a worker must buy something in order to start the program. Those interested also should take into consideration that, by becoming involved in a work-at-home scheme, they might well be perpetrating a fraud by selling the program to others, and risk investigation by postal authorities.
