The secret to choosing a home-based business without getting scammed? There is no secret. You may have been told differently but it's just plain common sense specifically, business sense.
I've experienced both success in choosing a good profitable home-based business as well as being scammed. I don't want anyone else to go through the bad taste of feeling like a fool.
Here are some tips on how to avoid getting ripped off when looking for a home-based business
No Experience Necessary
Watch out for jobs that say you don’t need experience. After all if jobs were that easy to come by, why would anyone bother going to college. Most legitimate business will require some knowledge and experience in the tasks required.
While some companies will post a salary range for their online job listings on Monster.com or Hotjobs.com most don’t include salaries in their ads. A reputable company won’t discuss salary until the interview. Key things to look out for are stated salaries like, “Make $500 your first week!”
Any job that asks you to pay a sign up fee to start should have you running the other way.
If you are unable to find any contact information, other than a contact form on a company's website, then chances are you are looking at a scam.
Don’t be fooled by the companies that announce they are spam free; chances are they are probably the ones sending the spam email out.
Lastly, trust your instincts. Listen to your inner voice. With experience, you will realize that it is always right.
