This blog is meant to help you determine which work at home job or program is for you. I am not making any determinations on whether or not a particular program is a scam. I am simply giving you the information to make that call for yourself.

Typing at home

This is one of the oldest scams around.  Now Im not saying all typing jobs are scams because there are some companies that will hire you to work at home and do data entry, etc.
However in this particular scam you will usually see an advertisement claiming you can make hundreds of dollars a week typing at home.  As you look into a little further they just need you to send them $65 dollars and their application and they will send you everything all the training materials you will need to get started. 
After a few weeks (they are busy you know!) you will recieve an very impressive manilla envelope.  What you will probably find inside is a list of companies from all around your state or general area.  You will also find some great instruction on how you should contact each one of these companies and inquire whether or not they are in need of typing services. 
Now the original company that you paid cannot guarantee that any of these companies will actually need your service but you just never know! 
My take:  Save your money and go through the phone book.  Pick random companies to call and see if they need typing services if this is something you are interested in.
You could also visit or and look in the telecommuting sections for free to find companies that do hire for this type of work.
