Beware of Work-At-Home Scams

One way to make living below your means easier is to increase your means (aka make more money).  Unfortunately, far too many people believe there is an easy way to do this and are all too willing to fork over cash for the “privilege” to do so.

While looking through a bunch of cool Info Graphics, I stumbled upon this one.  It is a pretty cool graphic explaining the pitfalls of the various “work at home” scams out there on the Internet.  The basic tips for these things always apply:

  • If it sounds too good to be true, it is
  • If you have to pay up front or pay to work, it’s probably a scam
  • Starting a business and making money is hard work, don’t think otherwise
  • If you see a pop-up ad, or a sign on the side of the road that is basically saying “you can make more money than you are now, for less effort” its a scam.  If these deals were so great, nobody would be telling you about them and they certainly wouldn’t need to spend their money advertising how great they are.
