How to Spot a Work-at-Home Scam

Photo from Tracy O

I do not usually make posts about making money on-line simply because that is also my problem. Until now, I am still discovering the right strategy for me. But as I am browsing the net, I found a good article at MSN Career Builders how we can have an idea whether a particular work-at-home program is for real or not. This was written by Anthony Balderrama who is a writer for Career Builder. This is a long article but I think I can point out some important facts here. As Christine Durst of Staffcentrix explained, here are some of the important facts we should be really concerned of.

1.0 Resume optional. If you are applying for a job, resume is a must. This is the same for business transactions. Obviously, no one will enter a hire a business partner without knowing if the applicant he is capable of doing it or not. But sometimes this logic is being ignored by the applicants especially if they think they do not have enough credentials. In fact, I believe that this dirty tactic can easily convince applicants.

2.0 It has incomplete details.
If the offer does not explain the complete details of your task, be doubtful. Do not be contented that you can easily be hired. The offer should be transparent in all aspects such as gain, activities and target. You might be surprised later on that you should meet a certain target before getting your share. Furthermore, do not be fooled by the attractive pictures you will see at the front page. The job offer must be straight forward and clear to all.

3.0 You can make $3,000day! Imagine a job that will give you around $75,000/month or nearly $1M a year. What kind of home-based work is that? If the offer is really authentic, then how much is the company getting? The funny thing is you may found this kind of ads through junk mails. A good-offer job ad can only be found from reputable advertising companies. You must be able to learn how to identify an offer that is too good to be true.

To learn more tips about on-line scams, you can check out this very interesting post at MSN Career Builders. Do not worry, it is free to view and I am not selling anything. I am just a concern blogger like you.

Cool little list.

#3 is actually illegal according to the FTC, so if one is ever in the mood (and they have enough information), they could report it.

Actually, they should report it at once to avoid further damage to others.

Thanks for dropping by.
