Be Wary of Work-at-Home Schemes

Written 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 omitrepparttar fact that you may have to work many hours without pay. Or they don't disclose allrepparttar 137510 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 buyrepparttar 137511 envelopes, paper, stamps, and other supplies or equipment you need to dorepparttar 137512 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 thatrepparttar 137513 promoter never had any employment to offer. Instead, for your fee, you're likely to get a letter telling you to placerepparttar 137514 same "envelope-stuffing" ad in newspapers or magazines, or to sendrepparttar 137515 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 fromrepparttar 137516 company, or materials to make items like aprons, baby shoes or plastic signs. However, after you've purchasedrepparttar 137517 supplies or equipment and performedrepparttar 137518 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."

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 andrepparttar 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 whererepparttar 137477 person doingrepparttar 137478 offering, notrepparttar 137479 self-employed worker, makesrepparttar 137480 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 ofrepparttar 137481 easy life, many work at home no fees jobs may have to work many hours without pay. Also, they don't discloserepparttar 137482 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 inrepparttar 137483 thousands of dollars. Not only have they lost money but time and energy.
