Nailed by a Work from Home Scam? Who Me?
Work from home scams are definitely out there and most people don't want to admit it once they have been taken for a ride. If you've never been scammed, well, it's likely because you either really haven't-- or you're in major denial. They say the first step to healing is admitting the truth, learning from your mistakes and getting back in the search for legitimate online employment.
So let's do this together, shall we? Let's admit the reasons you got taken by work from home scams.
You didn't do your research. You jumped right into the work from home job hunt without any information whatsoever as to what's available and what will realistically get you where you want to be.

So when you were asked for forty or fifty bucks for the privilege of working from home, it didn't seem so bad. After all, you'd make that back tenfold by next Tuesday, right?
If you had done your research into work from home opportunities, you would have learned the number one rule: no legitimate home-based job requires you to pay for the opportunity to work from home.
You were lazy. You decided to take a shortcut. Instead of investigating work from home job opportunities on your own, you decided to pay someone who had already done the work. You paid for a laundry list or membership to a site claiming to have secret knowledge of all the best work from home jobs on the internet. However, what you really got was a list of old, outdated prospects or a webpage filled with broken links.Continued on the next page
