At WorkAtHomeJobs.org, you won't have to worry about running into any work from home scams because we've already filtered all of them out of our search results. Nonetheless, it's always good to know how to spot one of these scams.
So, if you're using any other job site to find work from home jobs, here's how you detect a scam:
- They ask you to send them money before you can start working.
No real employer would ever ask you to send in money before you can work for them. Never fall for this one! Real employers pay you to work, not the other way around. NOTE: Home business opportunities are different. With these, you're paying someone to teach you how to run your own home business.
- They guarantee that you get rich quick.
The only job I know of that guarantees you'll get rich quick is being the CEO of a Fortune 500 company where your sign-on bonus is $50,000. Other than that, every job requires hard work and ingenuity to make a lot of money, even home based businesses. There are no free rides in this life, don't fall for the hype.
- They don't have a physical address or phone number you can reach them at.
Real companies will ALWAYS have a physical address and phone number. You may not be able to reach the hiring manager, but you should be able to reach the receptionist and verify that the company is a real business entity.
- They will not provide you with references of people already working for them.
If it was a real job, a real work opportunity, they would have at least one person you could call or email to verify what the job entails. If they don't provide references, run the other way.
And please don't fall for the old "get rich stuffing envelopes" or "make serious cash assembling craft kits". Those are all work at home scams!
But as I said at the beginning of this page, we have removed all of these scams from our job listings, so you don't have to worry about running into one when you use our site.
