Do you trust those things?

All these work at home jobs? I don't trust them, and the websites they have look pretty low quality. Anytime I hear that you need to PAY bla bla for a training fee that's like a giant red flag.

  • I don't trust them either. And they say they aren't legit if you have to pay them.

  • I have made really decent money from several different home jobs. At first I thought they were scams...but it wasn't until I put my 100% into one that I realized that most people don't have the follow through to make the money. Most people quit too soon or don't give it a real chance so they assume there is no money to be made and that's it's a scam. This is just my experience. However....there are many scams out there...just be cautions. If you would like any ideas on some that aren't scams and a complete waste of money...PM me.

  • They're sketchy and the crap you're supposed to sell is just tacky cheap garbage.

  • I don't trust the work from home "jobs" because most of those are scams BUT ther are a lot of legit home businesses. Once you understand the difference you will be able to tell which are scams and which ones are legit.

  • You should NEVER pay for a work at home JOB only and at home business. With a business you get a starter kit so that's what you are paying for. I love my business it's great. GOOD LUCK!!!

  • I dont trust anything that you have to pay for, ever! you should never have to pay to work at home. Unless, like rocamom said, if its a home based business then you are paying for a starter kit... anywho i do online surveys and i never pay for anything, if i would have to i def would not be doing it. i dont make alot of money but it sure helps. check out my Blog or go tp my profile i have some info there too.

  • A true job would never ask you to pay anything! They're supposed to pay you for the work you do. By the way, if these women who are trying to lure you into their business were really making all this money, why are they asking someone else to be a part of it? You'd think they would want more money themselves. Why not start your own company? That's the best business there is!
