For many years, scam artists have made a profit by selling empty promises to those desperate to change their situation. Despite the bad name this industry has, people still believe there are work from home jobs that are legitimate. Well, there’s good news for those who tried and kept looking.
Because of companies like Google, scam artists and shady business schemes are no longer being returned in search results. Because Google wants to return the best search results to their users, they have started to place more importance on the social web.
Social platforms like Facebook and twitter have allowed people to publicly announce their experiences in every aspect of life. When someone buys a new book or hires a new carpenter they usually tell the world, via their social network of choice.
When this book turns out to be not so good or the carpenter left the job half finished, guess who went to their podium. That’s right, you did!
Publishers know this now and soon, local business men and women will understand this too. But, one thing is certain. Joe scam artist already knows it and if he doesn’t he will soon find out.
How does this help me find a work from home job?
The fact is, you can search them out much easier now than you could a year ago. Google is constantly updating the way they index websites, so your best bet is to stick with them. Other search engines model themselves after Google and they can return great results too but, Google is the leader.
There are still plenty of scammers out there and criminals always find new ways to rip people off. So be careful when hunting a work from job online.
Here are some tips to help your search:
- Only $97 to get in now
If they ask for money upfront you should be cautious. Sometimes scammers will tell you “it takes money to make money” Whether this is true or not doesn’t matter. You can find plenty of ways to make money from home without paying your way into some “Club”
- I make 47 million dollars each month
If they tell you how much they’re already making. Any respectable business man or woman will not tell a stranger how much they get paid. And they certainly won’t provide a screenshot of their bank account.
- You can be making $47 million dollars in 30 days
If they tell you how much money you can make, this is a pretty good indicator of a scam. Unless you’re being paid by the hour and your hours are limited, it’s impossible to know how much you’ll make. Anyone in business knows that every person is different and they cannot compare you to anyone else. Chances are, what you’re looking at is performance based. So, how do they know how well you will perform? They don’t.
