Description of service

My husband recently took a new job that required us to relocate. Being a new stay-at-home mom, I decided that I would research work-from-home positions or telecommuting jobs. I wanted something that I could do part-time and preferably during the hours that my son was sleeping. I searched Hotjobs, Monster and local listings. You can't believe how many work-at-home positions there were. It didn't matter what part of the United Stated you were from, there were jobs in every state.

Most of the descriptions sound the same. Basically, the add will tell you that you can work as much or as little as you want also, any time of the day that you want. Sounds great, right? The adds usually go on to say that you can make $200-$500 per week, no selling involved, no phone calls. I've found that most of these positions are categorized as Data Entry Specialist. You are only required to have internet, email, decent typing skills and you must be 18.

It should have sounded too good to be true, but I really wanted to help supplement our income as I have always had a job up until now. So, I went for it. Most of the adds that I read through requested that you send $20 for training materials. The add said that as soon as you received the information, you could start working and making money. WRONG!!!!!

Review of Service

So, I sent in my money and received the training materials. Actually, it was a CD with the same info I had just applied to. Basically, I would post employment adds on free job sites and hope that someone would apply and I would give them the same spiel that I got. Obviously, this was a SCAM-nothing legit here. The adds make people believe they are applying to a "real" job, then they find out its just a continuous chain of scams.


Never pay for employment. The employer should be paying you. There are so many scams out there. Don't be fooled as I was. If it sounds too good to be true......you know the rest. Check the Better Business Bureau (BBB site) to find out if a company is legit.
