  • There are plenty of legit companies out there, you just need to know where to look. If you are curious about that company in particular, do a search or check with the local government's business office.

  • They aren't all a scam, no. It's just a VERY hard process to finding a legit one.

    I decided I wanted to work from home. I looked into a lot of oppertunities online with the work from home basis. I kept finding ones that didn't seem 100% legit. Finally I decided to start my own small business. I have an eBay store now and couldn't be happier with the decision I've made to start it!

    Good luck on your quest!! If you need any tips or advice, feel free to send me a private message.

  • I am very fortuntate to have found a legitimate company. We ahve a A rating with the BBB, a plan that is partnered with the FBI and other great credentials. So look into the company and see what credentials it has, check and make sure it has an address NOT a P.O. box and get the Comapny's owners name. Those are key things to look out for :-).

    Good Luck and keep your head up, there are great opportunites out there :-)

  • No, they aren't all scams, but you do have to be very careful. I would stay away from a company that's based in Europe, especially if you've never heard of it before.

  • The list of companies that hire for telecommuting/customer service jobs are very real indeed. I have a whole list of them in my Blog: Mavi's Home Work, Customer Service/ Call Center Jobs, also you can look through the list of companies that are known to hire for telecommuting work- List of National Companies.  There are, of course, lots of other ideas as well.      Working for company out of our country, h

  • sorry, however, I would not do. They do not have the same rules and regs that we do.

  • No, they are not all scams, like everyone else has said you just have to do your research and you actually have to work out what you do! I'm so glad I finally found one that works, like I said it takes work but its worth it! Good Luck on your search!
