There is no legitimate reason why people would give you a check or money order, and then ask you to wire money in return! This is NOT a legit work at home career!
There is NO reason!
For some reason a couple of months ago I got this letter telling me I had won this HUGE prize, and go ahead and deposit the following check! The check was over $8000, and as you can imagine it got my attention! I also knew something didn't smell good either! I'm not the type that goes around entering contests, and goodness knows where these people got my name from!
I got on google, and I searched every reference to that company and bank they listed on that check to see what the heck the deal was!
WELL I found out what it was! They check was to cover fees that it would take to give me the rest of my prize money, and they just KNEW I didn't have that kind of money hanging around and of course sent it to me for some favor. YEAH RIGHT! You deposit the money, and call the number and they will fill you in as to HOW to claim your prize! Meanwhile, you turnaround and use that money because of the 'out of country' issues, taxes, etc...and what happens? The check bounces, and whatever funds you had in there...GONE! You are now in BIG trouble with your bank, and your life is a nightmare!
I realize that isn't a work at home career description, but the same principal applies to alot of these other types of check scams! Clients will send you money, and you deposit it within the country...and keep a portion for your time! Check cashing fee lets call it! YEAH RIGHT! They will tell that there are good reasons why they can't cash them here themselves, but for some reason won't be upfront about that reason! Can you say red flag? They will claim they have all kinds of clients you can do this for, and make your work at home career take off the easy way. DON'T DO IT!
You are responsible for the checks you deposit.
Don’t deposit it – report it!
Report fake check scams to NCL's Fraud Center, at http://www.fraud.org/. That information will be transmitted to the appropriate law enforcement agencies.
You’ve seen the ads EVERYWHERE:
“Now hiring clerical home (ad) typists!
Work directly for our company.
Get paid for (every response to your
ad or every ad typed). No experience
necessary. No selling. Positions available
There are several companies on the internet that advertise the availability of "home employment" through home typist or ad typist "jobs" with their companies. But, if you've thought about joining any of these programs, and if you’re a newcomer to making money online, you'd be well advised to learn about affiliate marketing and how affiliate marketing works BEFORE you pay a fee to sign on with any of these programs. That way, you can make a more informed decision as to whether or not these opportunities would be a good fit for you before you fork over your money.
The truth is, if you sign on with any of these companies hoping to be “employed” as an "ad typist," "home typist," or "independent typist," you will not be "hired" as an "employee" of the company as their advertising suggests. These companies actually operate an affiliate program (also known as an associate program), and once you pay to join, your success with the program will depend upon your knowing how to market affiliate programs.
While you might want to believe that you'll make tons of money by simply typing ads (and, that’s what they want you to believe), the truth is, simply typing ads on classified ad sites is not going to help you to earn a decent income. Ask any experienced internet marketer, and if they're honest, they will tell you that you cannot generate a full-time income on the internet by simply engaging in this single activity. In fact, many will tell you that advertising on classified ad sites doesn't work.
According to Cathy Bryant, owner of HomeBizJunction.com, "Joining affiliate programs helter-skelter and trying to promote them individually via inefficient means such as classified ads, safelists, and other forms of ineffective advertising is an exercise in futility. It is this method of promotion that is often used by the newcomer online and results in their frustration and belief that earning an income with these programs is impossible."
And, that's what makes these "ad typing" programs a questionable business. They target individuals who have no internet marketing experience (most, if not all, of these programs advertise that no experience is necessary), and promise them that they will engage in a simple activity (typing ads) that can result in an adequate income.
To make matters worse, they publish testimonials of income earned by experienced internet marketers, but do not disclose this fact. This gives the newcomer the false impression that one has the potential to earn hundreds of dollars per week, having no prior experience, by simply "typing ads."
Most often, the opposite is true. So most newcomers do one of the following AFTER they pay their fee:
a. they spend hours a day, day after day, typing ads all over the internet for very little or no pay,
b. they spend hours and hours typing ads, and give up in frustration (and with no return on the fee they paid),
c. they spend hours and hours typing ads, give up, and request a refund, but are denied the full amount they paid to get into the program, or
d. even though they were told that typing ads was all that they would have to do to earn an income, they realize that typing ads alone doesn't work, and so, after having paid a fee, they begin the process of learning how to make money as an affiliate marketer (which is what they could have done for FREE had they known up front what they really getting into).
These "home typist" programs charge upwards of $60.00 or more, and I've yet to find one that will guarantee to give you a full refund should you enter the program, AND THEN realize that it's not what you were looking for. So, to avoid losing any of your hard-earned money, be sure to take the time to learn all that you can about a “home employment” offer, and about what you'll REALLY need to do to make money in it BEFORE you say “yes.”

This picture is a machine that does envelope stuffing! I think this may be one of the oldest work at home scheme! This type of machine, and others like it are the reason you need to STAY AWAY from envelope stuffing jobs! That is a work at home scam! As you can imagine this machine can stuff alot faster than any human could on a regular basis. Don't think 'envelope stuffing companies' don't know that as well!
Its hard to imagine that envelope stuffing scams are still out there, and still making money off poor people that tend to believe their sales pitch! Its just plain sad! The people that write those scams could be marketing geniuses if they just focused on something besides ripping people off!
There are people out there that start companies doing direct mail for their clients! Its a bit more than stuffing envelopes, and the more creative you are the more customers you could find! The only piece of advice I can hand you there is TRY to become your customer's one stop shop! That includes creating the flyer's, graphics, etc. You don't have to be talented in that area yourself because you can find those to do that for you! You will need some marketing skills! Do a bit more than just manage their mailing lists! These days companies are looking for time savers, and being a one stop shop would be just that!
Has anyone done any direct mail marketing? I assume there are some neat forums for that business! Anyone have any leads?

Questions to Ask
Fraudulent promoters of work-at-home schemes leave many unanswered questions. Don’t send any money until you get clear and complete answers – in writing – to all these questions:
What exactly do I need to do to earn money?
What will I get for my money?
Do I have to purchase anything?
What are the total costs to get in on the deal?
What quality standards I must meet for the products I produce?
Will I receive a salary? Or do I work on commission?
Who pays me?
How do I get paid?
Do I have to sell anything or market the product or information?
Do I need to recruit others to the program?
How do I get my money back if I am not satisfied?
If the answers you receive don’t really satisfy all your concerns, walk away from the promotion. The chances are good that the promotion is really a scam.

Kelly McCausey started a thread, and asked people to write about WHY they like to work from home! It has some very interesting replies, and for those of you that are looking for additional opportunities I would go over read there as well!
I think we all may have different reasons, and those that are very common as well!
I started a small engraving business when I had my daugther, and had that for close to 14 years before I decided to retire! Opening that business opened up my mind to how different parts of the world worked, and it opened my eyes to the community around me as well! In order for the area to KNOW me I decided to do a bit of networking! The thought of it scared me to death, but I quickly learned it wasn't to bad! What was nice about that aspect of my life is that I could work around my child's schedule. She could be with me most of the time, and I had a babysitter locally if I needed to visit a client! She really enjoyed the time away, because she knew it wouldn't be to long and then got to play with TONS of other children!
I think working at home so closely with children shows them the value of the dollar as well. It shows them that going to work means more than just those words. They see the work and the effort it takes. They see the drama, rewards, anxiety, fulfillment, etc all thown into one! I truly think it gives them a better appreciation for things that other children may not have the opportunity to experience! Children are children after all, and we can't expect them to grasp it all at once!
I believe in getting involved with the local community. It helps the community work better for everyone, and helps you know what is going on alot better than any newspaper can inform you of! I first got involved with DARE, and still to this day do some things with that organization! It was very rewarding to work together with others to find a car for our little town, and watch as a local car club volunteered to really GEARHEAD it out! Organize, market, and help run fundraising dinners to announce all the awesome sponsors of that car, and raise money for the next year's worth of students! My family loved being dragged in tow during those nights, and my children loved the extra perks they got from being involved with an organizer! HECK that was only the first YEAR!
I worked a local festival with the chamber of commerce that was hugely successful, and we got to send students to college with the funds we raised! At that point I got to know the business community, and was an officer at the local chamber of commerce as well! I was able to help in all kinds of faucets of the community that I may not have been able to do if I couldn't run my own schedule!
The isolation at times working from home can really take its toll as well, and you seriously need to have other activities to keep you plugged into the world! Community events also help the children see things they may not be aware of in this world. They see WHY giving back is important, and they also at times truly see the value of their own lifestyle that has been afforded them!
I have retired from the engraving business, and the chamber of commerce within the last couple of years. I found alot of new friends, and they were NOT to surprised that I didn't take me long to find another new venue and keep on going! We are still active in the community - that part didn't change - but instead of learning about how to put trophies together for mom .... they watch informercials with me as I educated myself to do my job better!
LOL I'm not saying that is the fun part for them, but neither was trophies assembly I'm sure! Working at home afforded me time to show the children that doing something for this earth, its people, our church, and community is important! They see how hard you have to work to get things done, and how long you work to get the money you need!
Working at home has some hidden perks that I don't think people think about! I realize others may be talking about gas prices, and no trips to the cleaners in other places!
Working at home means something different to me! OH YES it includes those perks, but the benefits for my children are something I may have never had the time or energy to do otherwise! Read more...
At Home Mom Blog has what I feel is very important questions to ask yourself about working at home!
Is your Work At Home Idea a Good one? addresses really good questions to start out with!
I remember reading and reading before I started at liveops, and I couldn't believe the amount of scams out there! Along with the scams you had these companies that wanted you to sell their items, and if you look at the minimum order amount you had better be awesome at selling! THAT says nothing about believing in their product!
From what I have seen you may be very excited about a product or industry, but most of the time you have TONS of competition! Best thing you can do is find your nitch! Take an aspect of that business that you LOVE and have passion for, and expand on that aspect! That is where you find some people that make it!
As the blog article mentioned DO your research...you will save yourself the heartache later!
Anyone has some scams they went for that blew up in their faces?
I found out recently my brother in law sent money away to buy supplies for crafts he was to assemble at home. Sighhhhh! I wish he would have called me first! If you read between the lines they will send you lists of items and assembly instructions...and MAYBE they will buy them from you! YIKES! At least it was only $15.00!
There are alot of crazy scams out there! Can you name a few? Read more...
I think I freaked about the gas prices that are coming soon just as much as anyone out there. Its downright awful!
One thing that I'm thankful for is that most of the time we only have to fill ONE gas tank these days! I'm not going to say I don't use my car, but not having to drive everyday does save us alot of cash!
Somedays as I work at liveops, and have one hum danger of a customer on the phone I have to remind myself - GAS PRICES! You do learn to blow those customers off, and place the issue into prospective of course! There are moments that I think most people have that you really seem to question, "Why am I doing this!? I don't need this abuse!" I look back at my corporate days, and I look back to when I sat on boards of chamber of commerce and I have to remember all positions have their downsides! HECK the times I just sat home with the kids alone there were days I wanted to hang them up by their toenails in the backyard! (Just an expression)
If you take into account all the things you save money on, and add those to other factors working at home isn't bad at all!
Besides the gas budget what else are you thankful for when you work at home? Read more...
