If you want to beat the credit crunch by working from home then access to good quality home working jobs is needed. Therefore this article aims to offer you some advice about how to identify home working jobs of genuine value. With a government that’s about as useful as a chocolate fire guard and an economy that only reflects the interests of the very rich few, what can you do to help yourself and your family?
Home working jobs which provide a substantial income could be the answer. However most sites offer trash and expect you to pay for it. Worse still some are actually trying to involve you in criminal activity. There are more unscrupulous traders in the home working jobs market than there are fleas in a dog pound. Nonetheless there’s a fantastic income to be made on line and a lifestyle to go with it.
In this article we’ll tell you what the worst scams on line are and how to avoid them before revealing some of the genuine gems that could really change your life.
Home Working Jobs Scam:
If anyone offers you an opportunity to earn a second income stuffing envelopes forget it. When you apply they’ll ask you to pay a small registration fee (kiss that goodbye) and then they’ll try to sell you on the idea of placing an ad just like the one you’ve just answered. Not only is this a pyramid selling scam it’s also potentially illegal.
Another home working job trick is the home assembly scam. A company will offer you the opportunity to assemble their products in your own home, usually citing a quite convincing argument that this saves on their production costs. They then promise that, once you’ve returned the completed product, they will sell the item and share the profits with you. Again you pay your fee and receive some appalling self assembly kit which you complete then return to the distributor only to have it rejected or mysteriously lost in transit. This is always your fault and you are always asked to buy another kit at a reduced cost (as a favour and sign of goodwill). Some people buy three or four before they realise they’ve been scammed.
Beware of home working jobs directories that say they have the contact details of the best money making opportunities on the Internet. They haven’t. What they’ve actually got is an expensive load of links, and most of them are dead, to sites that promise you riches in return for stuffing envelopes etc. I think you get the picture.
Other notable scams include companies offering you money for ‘home product testing’, there’s a registration fee and the products you’ll test (if they ever send you one) will be worth about 5% of that fee. Then there are other beauties like proof reading texts, data entry or even so called ‘Internet research’ where companies claim they’ll pay you for surfing the Internet. If it sound too good to be true then it probably is. In general avoid ‘registration fees’. on line businesses do not have the same administrative overheads as traditional offices so why do they need a ‘registration fee’?
Avoid The Home Working Jobs Scams:
As a general principle remember “caveat emptore” (buyer beware). There are plenty of decent people offering genuine value and high quality service but there are also a lot of sharks. You should keep your guard and carefully consider what people are telling you. Don’t be too eager to believe the hype.
Firstly there is no quick and easy way to get rich, well none that’s legal anyway. The only way is through your own time and effort. Anyone who tells you that you can be rich without working for it is lying – pure and simple. Secondly any legitimate company will be more than happy to offer you references, provide full contact details (which you should verify) and will answer any queries you may have. They’ll also have a clear and unambiguous refund policy; will offer you concise ‘terms of services’ (often called ‘Terms and Conditions’) which you should read carefully.
If the home working jobs involve selling products than do some research into the potential markets. You can do this through search engines, forums and social networking sites. If you and those you know wouldn’t buy it chances are no one else will either. Similarly if the work involves some sort of production line assembly be clear exactly what the company will pay you for each item you produce. If they say it depends upon many other factors don’t buy into it.
