  1. I want to join typing work as I need money. I want to do this work from home. I am a Post graduate from Pune University. I have done M.A. (social studies). My typing speed is 40w/pm.

  2. This is Tom Foley the owner of typingathome.net we have NEVER sent any emails posing as any bank of
    America official or have spammed or attempted to do anything like that in ANY way. I would like to see that proof with the email source attached. This is a complete lie and I am going to report this website to google if it is not removed. I am not going to let just anyone spread horrific rumors like this that are LIEs and quite defaming to my character and reputation. It could of came from typingathome.com which we have NO affiliation with and often people mistake us with them. So either remove this or I will take action to remove this website.

  3. I received an EMail with a link that contained the typingathome.net http, the email was posing as a Bank of America official email, telling me my account was locked and asking me to click on the internal link. Of course I didn’t do that. I forwarded the email that I received to Bank of America fraud division.

  4. I joined this company 3 months ago and have already been paid twice so no It’s not a scam. I’ve been working online for about 5 years and have tried several different types of home typing jobs and many ARE scams so always do research before hand. I made sure to research this company thoroughly before I spent any money on it because I had to learn the hard way if you don’t check first you may be sorry!
