Work At Home Jobs - Legit Or A Scam?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There are many online opportunities that enable you to work from your home, but how many of them are legitimate and which one's are the best work at home jobs? There are a lot of scams on the internet and for every legitimate business opportunity there are at least a hundred scams and with this in mind you have to take caution when you sign up to or buy certain products.

How do you spot these scams and how do you then make an informed decision which business you should choose? What i like to do is look at website review's on the internet about certain products and services. These review's are usually honest and written by people who are experts themselves in the business or who have tried the product or services themselves.

Also be careful of these review's. Some are written and put up before the actual product launch by affiliates who just want to earn a commission. The review is therefore not a honest one. Give it a few weeks after the product has been launched and look for real review's on forums from customers who have used the product. This way you will save your hard earned money and not waste it on bogus products.

I avoided buying a lot of products or scams by using this technique. What are the warning signs to look for when deciding to spend money on these opportunities? Usually the companies name has already changed three to four times and if their product was legit why would they have to do that? This already shows you that you are dealing with a bunch of crooks.

The other thing they like to do is after you have paid and signed up your monthly payment suddenly goes up from $9,00 to $22,00 or something like that. The customer support is also usually very bad and if you have questions or problems you either get no response at all and your problem is not resolved as these people are only out to take your money.

Sometimes when you investigate further you will also find that the sales page and content is totally fake and is also based on a fake article with bogus information with a success story of a person that does not even exist. Some even use video presentations with actors posing as the owner's of the product. They also like to use fake screenshots of for instance Click bank accounts to show you how much members are earning, which is all a lie.

You should look for a company or product that is not built around hype and which offers ongoing education and training at no extra cost and without further up sells or filler. You have probably experienced this before,you buy a product for $49,00 and then they refer you to another sales page where you suddenly realize that you now have to pay another $97,00 to get the rest of the product.

The products themselves usually contain a lot of filler, which means you don't receive all the information and training as promised and you have to buy more products which is very clever marketing but also very deceiving.
