Are You a Work at Home Scam Magnet?

Do you need to find a job where you can work at home, and need to do it today? Do you need a few hundred dollars this Friday in order to pay for last month's heating bill?

If the answer to either of these questions is yes, then you need to step back and look at the big picture. Not your work at home needs, nor your bank account, but the big picture of the internet. You need to take a step outside of yourself or you're going to get scammed.

True Story: My mother came over this weekend to hang out with us and the kids, and we got to talking about about work at home stuff, as we often do. She told me that she stumbled across an "opportunity" where she could cash checks for some third party, and she would keep 20 percent or something.

Let me tell you, the only reason I didn't smack the crap out of her is because she gave birth to me.

The point: if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. If somebody can make 200 bucks by cashing a check (without risking some jail time), why the hell are they going to pay you to do it?

I'm glad you didn't deck your
mother:) Those work at home "opportunities" are bogus, and I've looked at a lot of them. Good advice; this aging mom appreciates your expertise.
