How To Spot Work-From-Home Scams
Here’s another post I think will be helpful to so many. Because lots of us dream of working 100% from home. Having a job that allows us to pay all of the bills, but no longer have to physically go into a workplace. My friend Daniella from I Like to Dabble shares her insight into identifying jobs that are just too good to be true. Her tips on spotting work from home scams are a must-read in today’s world of evolving technology.
Read on to learn the tell-tale signs of a work from home scam —
There are a lot of office triggers I can’t stand. Like the fluorescent lighting, the persistent distraction from pointless meetings and coworkers and the whole thing about getting dressed in the morning.
That last part is a joke but it’s true. I am pretty lazy. That is why I found myself ways to work from home more and even snagged a couple of 100% work-from-home jobs in the past (but working in I.T. is perfect for that).
My last job before this one was at a company that contracted with the VA and was actually a 100% remote office. Everyone who worked for them worked from all different parts of the country. The President lived in Miami, the V.P. in North Carolina, HR in Colorado, an engineer lived in Florida and Me in Missouri.
Do you know where I found that job? Indeed. That is one of the legit online job boards you can usually depend on finding good opportunities.
But not every listing on a legit online job board is actually legit. Yes, a lot on the internet is very scammy. Especially ads for work-from-home jobs. They squeeze into every platform possible. If you’re not careful, you might fall for one.
