Spending a lot of time on your computer, you know there are ads and emails everywhere about people making ridiculous amounts of money working from home, but you’re wise – you just don't fall for any tempting offer.

One day, however, one of those How To Make Money From Home ads is showcasing opportunities such as “data entry on Google or Yahoo”, "make money online", or "work for home jobs". People apparently are making a lot of money by doing something that looks like a decent job and you may think: ‘If they can, why can’t I? And it’s Google; it is a huge company, it can’t be a scam!’

So you pay $1.97 or a sum usually under $3 for online details (or a CD that will be shipped to you). The ‘job’ is posting links to forums or websites for various clients, and there is a promise that you will be provided with a huge list of customers.

Needless to say, providing your credit card numbers aof that $1.97 charge will rack up your next financial statement, without getting anything instead.


How to avoid the Work From Home Jobs - Data Entry Scam:

Do not fall for this; Google and Yahoo are not involved in this. All the scammers need is your credit card. You will notice a $169 charge billed to your credit card shortly that may prove almost impossible to cancel. If you don’t notice it, the monthly charges will keep coming. Always do your research and work only for legitimate employers. If you are really thinking of earning money or rewards online, here are a couple of great alternatives:
