Be Wary of Work-at-Home SchemesWritten by John Mussi
Be wary of work-at-home schemes as they are not all that they may seem. The adverts promise big monetary gain but invariably prove to be a let down. While you may find these ads appealing, especially if you can't work outside your home, proceed with caution. Not all work-at-home opportunities deliver on their promises.
Many ads omit fact that you may have to work many hours without pay. Or they don't disclose all costs you will have to pay. Countless work-at-home schemes require you to spend your own money to place newspaper ads; make photocopies; or buy envelopes, paper, stamps, and other supplies or equipment you need to do job.
Here are two typical examples of work-at-home-schemes:
Envelope stuffing: Promoters usually advertise that, for a "small" fee, they will tell you how to earn money stuffing envelopes at home. Later - when it's too late - you find out that promoter never had any employment to offer. Instead, for your fee, you're likely to get a letter telling you to place same "envelope-stuffing" ad in newspapers or magazines, or to send ad to friends and relatives. The only way you'll earn money is if people respond to your work-at-home ad.
Assembly or craft work: These programs often require you to invest hundreds of dollars in equipment or supplies. Or they require you to spend many hours producing goods for a company that has promised to buy them. For example, you might have to buy a sewing or sign-making machine from company, or materials to make items like aprons, baby shoes or plastic signs. However, after you've purchased supplies or equipment and performed work, fraudulent operators don't pay you. In fact, many consumers have had companies refuse to pay for their work because it didn't meet "quality standards."
Be Careful When Looking For Work At Home No FeesWritten by Daegan Smith
Work at home no fees is a common way to scam people into a dead end opportunity with expensive hidden costs and fees. There are many legitimate work at home no fee offers, but careful examination is necessary before jumping into something without doing your homework. Working at home can be a powerful draw to many people and fringe benefits are great. You can be your own boss, work full-time or part-time, without a dress code, or a certain time to start work. These attractive lures are often used to pull someone into a program where person doing offering, not self-employed worker, makes only profits.
Some work at home no fees jobs do not deliver what they promise. Many have slick ads that hide facts and figures. Instead of easy life, many work at home no fees jobs may have to work many hours without pay. Also, they don't disclose out-of-pocket expenses you will have to pay such as buying envelopes, paper, and stamps. Some of these work at home no fee jobs require you to spend your own money sometimes in thousands of dollars. Not only have they lost money but time and energy.
