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.

Scam Warnings

I thought it was important to share this information.  Lately there has been some controversy about whether or not it is "okay" to sell information on working from home.  People of course have been selling information for a long time of course and on the internet there are tons and tons of people who sell information on how to work from home. 
My personal opinion is that selling information is akin to a used car salesman selling a lemon.  If the seller is upfront about the information they are selling and you know exactly what to expect then more power to them.  However if they are hiding behind phrases that make it sound like you will be working for an actual company and recieiving a paycheck from that company, then I feel they are lacking integrity. 
While doing some research for this blog today I was thrilled to find that BBB agrees with me! 
If you are looking to work from home I would really hope you will read all the information here:
Pay particular attention to this section from the BBB article:

"Cyberspace is simply the newest arena that scam artists have entered to widen their hunt for more people to dupe. To avoid falling for work-at-home scams, both on- and off-line, look for the following warning signs:

  • Overstated claims of product effectiveness;
  • Exaggerated claims of potential earnings, profits, or part-time earnings;
  • Claims of "inside" information;
  • Requirements of money for instructions or products before telling you how the plan works;
  • Claims of "no experience necessary."

While you are looking for a way to make money at home, if you see any of these things, a red flag should hit you on the head.  Take that as a clue that you need to stop and go no further.
