How can I tell the scams from the legitimate work at home jobs?

Help. please. I am trying to find some kind of legitimate work at home job to help out my family. I currently work running an accounting office but my husband is disabled and I really need to be at home. I have tried looking all over online and just can't tell the real stuff from the scams. Does anyone here work at home? Can you give me advice or tell me where to look or even who is a great place to work for? I would really appreciate it.

  • Here is the scoop. If you have to invest money, then don't do it. If you are truly wanting to do something from home... open your own business... It's not hard. Check out for a listing of things you can do from home, but it would be your own business. These are ideas of home businesses.. Not parties, MLM, or such.

  • When it comes to jobs careful there are sooo many scams and you never pay to get a job! Now if it is a home business on the other hand there is usually a investment involved. Otherwise how do you think people get started in a business without putting some kind of money into it! I at first looked for a job also and almost gave up but I ran into a awesome home business.
