Knowledge Is Key To Preventing Work At Home Frauds

The unfortunate reality is that there are many crooks out there. So you need to arm yourself with knowledge to avoid work at home scams.


The best ammunition to have when looking for real work online is to have a thorough knowledge of the typical work at home scams. Though these exist is many forms including tedious craft building tasks, we will focus on those strictly related to the net.





Paid information



Work at home scams includes supplying you, the honest individual a list of apparently legitimate work from home jobs. These “opportunities” are usually advertised as looking for “home workers” but may even offer specialised lists such as work from home typing or writing. These lists are usually offered to you online via a website, job listing or random email. The company then offers to deliver the priceless content either as a physical package or in the form of a document by mail. Obviously they do not come free, but ask a fee for this seemingly invaluable information.



Though you will most certainly get something for your cash, it is more likely to be an outdated list of real opportunities long since filled or a conglomeration of adverts for more such work at home scams. In the most extreme cases, what is delivered is actually a virus, which in fact you essentially not only requested, but even paid for, cash!



Medical processing



Medical processing jobs are most often work at home scams that promise a short course to do a job which essentially takes years to master. They promise that you can process claims for various health care professionals but require you to pay for some software and a course. This is not a job that you can learn in one single course and not worth the financial investment that you are guaranteed to lose.
