How to Spot (and Avoid) Work From Home Scams

Work from home scams happen to good people just like you.....unfortunately.

The good news though is that the scammers aren't that smart.


You can catch home based business scams and nip them in the bud before you lose your time and money.

Ever heard the saying, "if its too good to be true, it usually is"?

Well, if you apply that rule in all situations you could also run the risk of becoming an overly cynical person that is suspicious of anything and everything that sounds really good.

There is buyer's remorse and there are scams.

Steps to Avoid Work From Home Scams

  • First, decide what "too good to be true" means for you.
Too good to be true doesn't just have to be how much money you are being enticed with. Sit on your couch all day and make $200? Smells funny!

  • Outrageous claims
what happened for other people is great, and can happen for you, but remember you are not that person. Get into it knowing that it is the possibility of what can happen for you, not necessarily what will happen.

Your personal ability to work hard, create uniquely and motivate yourself is always a factor!

  • Become your own best detective
Being skeptical should be used to help you gather useful information to help you make your decision.

Cynics however never really venture into the unknown; they may be able to escape the home based business scams, but they also never get to experience the absolute rewards that only come from taking calculated risks.

  • Tap into your intuition
If you smell a rat, don't push the thought to the back of your head. Investigate! Ask around...

  • Money back guarantee
Most legitimate work from home businesses will charge you a fee of some kind. Be it membership, training package, whatever. How much is too much? Most people who have a legitimate work from home opportunity would say anything over $500 is for crazy risk takers. Your choice!

  • What kind of support are you being offered?
If it isn't made crystal clear from the beginning, don't assume it will be offered once you have parted with your money.

  • Real Results, not fluff...
One of the most revered home based business website building resources is Site Build It (SBI).

But that is also because Site Build It can show you real successful websites that regular people have built using SBI's resources. The magic is in the process.

Of course, Site Build It also has over 62% of its members' websites in the top 1-3% most visited websites on the internet.

Have you ever fallen for an outright home based business scam?
