Work At Home Scams Increasing By 50% Per Year

I’ve just been rummaging around PRWEB, a press release site that I have used from time to time.

There I found this interesting release about work at home scams.

According to Staffcentrix, the chances of finding a legitimate work at home opportunity amongst all the scams is 42 to 1 against!

Not only that, but they also claim that the number of home opportunity scams is increasing at the rate of 50% per year.

It seems quite scandalous that people who are trying to supplement their income through such schemes have such little chance of not being duped.

Especially when you consider that the majority of home work seekers are on the lowest incomes to start with.

As we have said here before, always research home working opportunities before taking one up.

Think very carefully if they ask for money up front – they should be paying you!

    Next they’ll ask for your bank details and SSN so it’ll be easier to transfer your earnings directly. Does ‘Nigerian Scam’ ring a bell?

    Or maybe this is one of those ‘subscribe to all the ads we send in the email’ things?
