The email inboxes of net-savvy parents are often flooded with home business scams.

We're prime targets. We know our way around a computer keyboard, and we love to spend time with our kids, so we're marked for every home-business opportunity inrepparttar book.

And it's true: a lot of us would love nothing more than to make money and stay at home. That's why even though we know we can smell a rat a mile away, we're sometimes tempted...even by those less-than-reputable (and less-than-ethical) companies that rely on SPAM to getrepparttar 127566 word out.

Here are a few tips to avoidingrepparttar 127567 scams and finding repparttar 127568 right home-based business opportunity for you.

IF IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE... It probably is. If you find an opportunity for which you can make a lot of money without spending any time working, move on torepparttar 127569 next opportunity.

VAGUE HEADLINES "Tammy made $4,000 in her first month. So can you." First of all, who is Tammy? Testimonials that are difficult to verify may not be legitimate. Ifrepparttar 127570 ad only gives first names and photographs of people holding scads of cash, be careful. If Tammy is a legitimate home-working entrepreneur, it's possible that she made that $4,000 in her first month...and significantly less after that time period.

Also be wary of companies that offer to sell you lists of companies that are looking for homeworkers. A friend of mine once shelled out $95 for such a list, which turned out to be a listing straight from her yellow pages. When she contacted these businesses, she discovered that they were neither looking for home-workers nor did they agree to be listed in such a book.
