Research and complaints indicate most of these are scams. Think of it - what sort of company is going to make money and have reutrn customers by going out and contacting random people via the web and "hiring" them sight unseen and with no qualifications to work for them ? I even came across one while trying to check out the "Next Job At Home" - which BTW tracked back to a business headquarters in Thailand and indications it is owned by a company out of the Netherlands which reputedly has thousands of complaints against them under dozens of company names. This one offer I came across was from a company in India, to go into business reading and interpreting xRays overnight for US doctors - only $249 for everything you need to become a radiologist ! Ain't Oamacare wunnerful - look at how much money it is saving us.

It is like the envelope stuffing operatings - you can commercially stuff, address and bulk-mail postage imprint envelopes by machine for the cost of a standard stamp - so why would they pay Joe Blow the commonly promised ¢20 or ¢50/envelope over cost to stuff and mail them.

Get real - unless you already have a viable, paying marketable skill and known clientele that lets you turn your employment into working from home at the same job, work at home schemes are out to make money for themselves money, not for you. You could go through hundreds of schemes before finding one that you can actually make a living off working at home - most of them hit you up for training fees, franchise fees, required purchases of overpriced materials and supplies and computers and software and advertising fees etc before you even do a single days work, and then getting paid for what you do if there is actually any work at all - as they say in Jersey or the Bronx - Fuhget It, Buddy !
