Does any stay at home moms out there that know of any "NONSCAM" work from home jobs?

I am looking for a job but, being that I am without a car right now I have no ways of transportation. I was wondering if anyone knew of a legitimate online work from home type of job. Also, I am not to fond of puting my son in a day care so, I'd rather have something I could work part time or full time to bring in some money. Thanks for any and all of your help, it's greatly appreciated! God Bless!

  • Go up to the groups tab here and do a search for work at home. Yes, you will find a couple hundred which are only moms recruiting those home businesses where you have to pay in - but - there are at least one or two groups with good leads. You can take calls for different companies, the available jobs change all the time and also depend on where you live.

  • I am a work at home mom (with a home biz) there are some great benefits with having that...but it sounds like you want something that pays by the hour. Is that right?

    One of my favorite sites is: Go to the telecommuting area. A job will cost you as well up front. Head set, and some other possible hardware.

    There are also paid survey sites. I just joined one that I heard is can find it on my page...and hit the link. You earn money for each survey you complete...they send them to you based on your demographics...and also you earn a dollar for each person you refer. I am trying it because I am always hoping to plug people into something even if what I do for a business with Melaleuca is not for them

    You can do it!

    Be aware...if you post that you are looking for a job...or work form home you need to be very specific.

    For my biz you do not need a car.

  • You can search for jobs that match your skillset and have a telecommute or remote option. Do you have a former employer you could work for remotely? If you have a computer with high speed internet & Microsoft Office Pro & have at least intermediate MS Office skills, you should be able to find work as a virtual assistant (VA). For more information, go to,, . Do you have a skill or experience that you can turn into a home based business? I have a friend who makes children's hair accessories in her basement & sells them to boutiques around the Midwest. My husband runs a handyman business from our home. I work from home with two lines of business; I do freelance bookkeeping & business organization; I also do career & job search coaching. I am always happy to help cafemoms (and dads) with resumes, cover letters, job search strategy & interview prep. Feel free to contact me directly.

  • You bet there are! I work at home doing data entry---- for a business in my city. The only thing to be wary of with data entry is most of the newspaper ads for data entry at home are scams. The only way to make sure it is legit is to contact data companies directly and ask if they offer at home keying.

  • I work for kgb_, I'm sure you've seen the commercials on TV. You must put in a bunch of hours to make a decent living. Basically any work at home job is going to require an obscene amount of work. You should NEVER have to pay your own money to work. Anyone who's asking for money is a scam artist, or someone who says "Sign up for me and you can sign up people to work for you!" Pyramid schemes do not work.
