I've been trying to find work I can do from home and have had absolutely NO luck. Everything out there sounds like a scam all i want to do is earn a little extra to help out my spouse and still be able to raise my two boys!!!! I don't want to open my own business and I don't trust anyone that says "you can make $5000.00 in one week" Has anyone else gone through this frustrating problem? has anyone found a legit job they do from home that did not require a fee?

If you're looking for a get-rich-quick scheme, forget it. If you are serious about making money from home you have to embrass the work as a job. You can stuff envelops and post to your hearts content to make a little bit of cash but chances are you'll be stuck from one scam to another if you don't take it seriously. Why don't you want to open your own business? There are jobs out there that you can do from home but you have to take them seriously. Consider what your skills are, what you're willing to do and learn and go from there. If you want to make money with the least effort possible, you'll make the least money possible. You can type student papers, or help people clean their houses, or babysit, or cook meals, or become a consultant of some sort, or free lance or... there are tons of possibilities. What do you want to do?
