Virtually every one of the so-called work from home jobs is a scam. Keep in mind that while plenty of Americans work from home, they do it for their regular jobs that they already have, and they probably still have to go into the office some times. These people did not find an online ad and get a working from home job with no experience by just filling out some forms and information over the Internet.
Just think it through for one minute. Doing something like data entry from home would be a great job, especially if you could get a job like that without any experience.
That means TONS of people would want these jobs. If that is the case, then why would any business pay high wages for that, especially to someone with no experience?
In fact, if you think about it for just one more second, you should end up with another conclusion. A job that can be done by anyone, from anywhere, without any extensive training, or previous experience is EXACTLY the kind of job that you can outsource overseas to someone making $5 a day.
How could it possibly be that any company or business in the world would pay you “$2,500 to $10,000 a month or more”?
Don’t be naive.
Work From Home Scams
1) Get Your Cash Then Disappear – They will either require you to send in money for something that sounds legit like a background check, or for some sort of kit to get started and you will either get back nothing, or something worthless.
2) Get Your Bank Account Info – They will say that you are hired but they only pay by direct deposit, so they need your bank account information. They may even ask you to sign a form. Then, they will use that info (and your signature if you filled out a form) to rob your account.
3) Get Your SSN for Identity Theft – We have to have you fill out a form so we can withhold taxes for you. That form includes a SSN and your name and address, everything an identity thief needs.
There are jobs that allow you to work from home, but NONE of them hire people without experience for high pay without meeting them.
If you insist on trying it out anyway, protect yourself!
1) Open a new bank account with no money in it. Give them this bank account information, and only if you HAVE TO.
2) Get a Tax ID number instead of your SSN. Working from home in this manner means being an independent contractor. Get a EIN from the IRS and use it instead of your Social Security Number on any paperwork. It is free and you can get one instantly by filling out an online EIN application form. They will probably just ignore you and move on to easier fish (which is proof it was a scam). If the do bother to come back and say it has to be a SSN, then move on.
3) Some jobs do require a background check, but they do not require that you pay for it with money order, cash, or check. Buy a prepaid Visa for the minimum amount and pay with that. Do NOT use a personal credit card.
But, seriously, you will save yourself a lot of time and trouble if you just re-read this article. There are no amazing “unheard of” opportunities out there that allow you to make great income from the comfort of your own home with virtually
