When you first start looking for a work from home job it may be a little intimidating. Just Craigslist alone has so many telecommuting jobs listed it is hard to sort through what is
real and what is a scam. Here are some things to watch for when
searching for a legitimate work from home job.
Does the job ask for your resume or application?
If the company seems very uninterested in your background or experience chances are it is a scam.
Do they give a detailed description of what the job is and what you would be doing?
If the job description is non-existant or very, very vague then chances are there is no real job.
Does the job ad sound more as if it is trying to sell YOU on the job instead of selling the job on you?
If the ad for the job sounds as if it is trying to sell you it's
probably a scam. Any real job is going to want you to sell yourself to
them with your resume and experience not the other way around.
Does the ad say something like "MAKE $2000 a week working part time!!!"?
Once again, if it sounds too good to be true then it usually is.
Do they ask for money?
This is a bad sign but if they start asking for money before they have
even interviewed you then it is even worse. There are some legitimate
work at home companies that will require you to pay for your own
background test. I have worked for two of them so I know they are legit
but before you hand out money for ANY reason make sure you do your

If the ad lists the name of the company or the website then do your
research. There are lots of websites you can check to see if the company
has complaints against them. and are
just a couple. Also check a few work at home forums and do a search by
the company name. You may find postings by people who work for the
company and can back up that they are legit or you may find postings by
people who were attempted to be scammed. Also, another great way to
check out a website is to do a search for the domain. You can find out
how long that domain has been registered and to who. If it is a brand
new domain then be careful. There are several places you can do this at
but here is one. Just type in the domain name and it will tell you when
it was registered
