In a nutshell, you find an ad, which tells you that you could turn your computer into a moneymaking machine (giving you the example of someone who already quit their 9-5 job - More details on this can be found in the Mom Makes $.../ Day Scam). They lure victims in by using phrases such as "Make an extra buck", "extra holiday money", "Make money online", or "Make money on the Internet", etc.

The way the scam works is that you are asked for a fee to sign in and receive a start-up kit, which you never receive. Instead, you will be billed huge monthly payments, until you opt out. Alternatively, the scammers are looking for your personal information, requesting your Social Security (or Insurance) Number to commit identity theft.

But that's not all. Watch the video below to see a different variation of the Work From Home scam.

How to avoid:

Don't get us wrong, there are companies that are trying hard to lead a legitimate business. However, keep in mind that every successful business is successful because it has happy customers. Try to find those who worked with the company before, but do not use the "company's" own testimonials. That's where everybody falls, as they believe everything without doing research. There are over 1,000 forums on this topic on the Internet.

Always do your research and work only for legitimate employers. If you are really thinking of making money through online sources, below there are some recommandations. They are legitimate, operate ethically and professionally, and offer great rewards.
