Those of us lucky enough work from home are in an enviable position. And the world's con artists know it.
Preying on people who simply want to balance financial security and family life, they push phony work-at-home opportunities of every type--from pyramid schemes and bogus businesses to useless directories of work-at-home jobs and low-pay survey taking. The result for those who send money can mean anything from hours of work for negligible or no pay to the loss of thousands of dollars.
Perhaps, one of the sneakiest Internet work-at-home scams are the websites that purport to "review" work-at-home websites. They claim to have checked out dozens of work-at-home jobs and only found found a few that pay. They tout these select few and then link to them. But careful examination will reveal that these too are scams.
