There are a ton of scams out there designed to sucker you out of your money. You’ve probably seen truckloads of them and they all pretty much look the same: “Make Thousands a week while working from home!” “Let me tell you how I made Thousands while working only 4 hours a day!” “Read books for money!” “Medical billing specialist needed! No experience necessary!” You’ve probably seen these scattered throughout magazines, in the newspaper classifieds, on flyers posted around town and of cou

Are you like me? Are you sitting at your personal computer, all hooked up to the internet, and are still trying to learn what it takes to turn an extra buck or two? I just hope and pray I'm not the only one out there in this boat. Maybe I'm just a slow learner. I pound my head, rack my brain, and I still believe that I'm no closer to understanding this internet income business. My desire level is still at it's peak, but I'm still chasing that elusive first dollar. Perhaps I'm just venting here

Twitter goes big business as services go after big businesses on Twitter. What does that mean? CoTweet knows.

True, most of us would love to be home all day. And, many of those who would love to be home would like to be independent, without a boss. So the soul searching goes on to decide on a business that you might like and could be successful at. Your choices during the time will have a great impact on how things turn out for you.
This was apparently the dream for one Montgomery County, Texas couple who started a business out of their trailer. In fact, the young couple was recently featured in

.net/index.php?module=article&view=988">this online Montgomery County News report. Seems the business they chose was to operate a home-based meth lab. Oops! Wrong business to start!
The piece reports that James and Melissa Jones of Splendora, TX were busted on multiple charges, including intent to manufacture a controlled substance (a first-degree felony), at the home they shared with their two children. It seems that the Jones residence allegedly contained an active methamphetamine lab.
If you decide to go into business for yourself so you can work from home, please be sure to choose a legal home based business! And never, never put those you love in danger because of it!Starting the Wrong Home Business originally appeared on About.com Home Business on Friday, November 6th, 2009 at 17:26:19.Permalink | Comment | Email this

CraigsList can be a decent place to look for work at home jobs, although it has its issues. Among them are that you can only search one metro area at a time and that CraigsList draws a lot of scammers so you need to be careful in screening which work home jobs you apply for. As I was visiting CraigsList today, I saw the following alert, directly from CraigsList with respect to job openings in general:

SCAM ALERT - affiliate scammers are posting bogus ads promising (nonexistent!) employment, paid research trials, or other compensation, but then not

ifying repliers that they'll need to jump through a hoop first, directing them to:
  • background checking services

  • credit checking or reporting sites

  • sites where you are instructed to enter your resume or other personal information

  • sites where you are asked to sign up for a "free" trial offer

  • sites offering training or education

  • sites offering a "system" for making money

  • survey or focus group sites

  • sites designed to deliver malware or misuse your identifying information


all in hopes of earning affiliate marketing commissions or otherwise profiting at the expense of persons seeking employment.
Lots of variations on this scam, but each generally involves dangling (nonexistent!) compensation, and then directing you to a website where you are asked to sign up for something, use your credit card, or input personal information such as your email address.
Then there is a link to the job postings in the category you selected so you can proceed, but you might want to continue reading the scam alert before you do so, for the following information:
FUN FACT: If you are able to determine a scammer's "affiliate ID" and report it to their affiliate marketing program, this will often result in termination of the scammer, and confiscation of the scammer's ill-gotten gains by the affiliate program.
It wouldn't surprise me at all to see the Google Work at Home Scams listed in CraigsList, since those work at home programs seem to be actively recruiting affiliates who are probably unaware they are participating in something that's often seen as a illegal.
Be vigilant, regardless of where you seek work at home. I sometimes use CraigsList as a source for my weekly Work at Home Jobs List and although I scan for clues that the ads I post are legit before I pass them on to you, it's impossible for me to apply for each posting to determine if it fits the mold of the scam job ads that CraigsList warns about.

. About two-thirds of those who do work from home now ended up finding work at home without really trying. The other third were successful in going out and finding the opportunity to work from home and a few experienced a little of both.
That's a very large number of people (2300+ in the first group and counting, and 1,300+ in the second group) who have lots of great ideas that could be tapped on getting to work from home.
One more statistic: So far, 88 people and counting have indicated why they want to work from home and, in many cases, it's more of a NEED to work from home than a want - especially for those who are disabled.
So what say you, those who work from home now, are you willing to share your experiences with them? How did you find work from home, and what advice can you offer those who are still looking?
