Hi, There are quite a few legit data entry and typing jobs that don't charge you a fee. One that I do is called KeyForCash. No setup fee, you log in when you want to work and work for as long as you want or until the work runs out. It says there is a waiting list, but I only had to wait about 2 weeks. It's not a job that you can make a career out of, but you can make extra money. You can also check out job boards like WAHM.com and RatRaceRebellion.com. They check out all jobs before they post, and tell you which ones are legit. Also the forum boards are great on these sites...the people on them are very supportive of each other and will also post legit jobs that they found, as well as let you know which ones to avoid. There are a couple of legit jobs that do charge you for a background check, from $15.00 to $30.00, but they are legit and you'll earn that back in no time. Another good job board is VirtualVocation's com. If you go there, check out "Tamona TX" and other's that post jobs in the actual forums, which are free. RatRaceRebellion even has a comparison chart of legit companies, that shows you how much each one pays, what states they hire in, whether it's an employee or independent contractor position, etc. Hope this helps!

I think RatraceRebellion, and Keyforcash.. and the other sites which you have said don't suit for People from Asia.. in short those who live other than US and CANADA.. Any sites that accept [b] a) International members, b) Encourage Newbies c) Does not ask for upfront fees. Have anyone in your sleeves.. please share here. Thanks pal.

My best advise if you want to earn an actual paycheck versus pennies here and there, is to visit sohojobs.org. You can apply to companies who hire people to work from home and get hired to do the job from your home. We are in the age of outsourcing!! Sohojobs.org...you cannot go wrong there. Best to you ~ Teri K "earning income from home thanks to sohojobs.org"

Hi judelen I believe they are international. Once you become a member of sohojobs.org you will then have access to the job listings that are posted. You then apply directly to the company and visit the company's website. I know that each company will have their own terms, etc... I do believe that there are alot of international work on sohojobs.org Hope that helps. Let me know if you need assistance. Teri K "earning income from home thanks to sohojobs.org"

Freelancing jobs can become quite good once you start getting feedbacks from people who have given you work to do and are satisfied. The first few jobs you'll do will be crucial as to if you have bad reviews you can expect you'll get nothing more.

I would love to have a home-based data entry job since I could do it online but so far, I had not found any. In fact, I actually tried one which originated from my country. They said that all I have to do is to do some copy paste, reply some mails and get paid, in return I need to pay a small amount of money. Since it was only a small amount of money, I didnt hesitate to try it. Once I banked-in the money, all I got was a forwarded email with some useless things attached to it. How it works? The things attached are actually templates which you'll need to upload it into a free hosting server and make it into a webpage. It will be the same webpage as the other person's webpage. Once some 'victim' found your page and interested in it, they will mail you and you'll have to reply them and if they are really interested, they'll pay you and you'll forward them the same mail, attached with the same useless things. It was a dissapointment to me so I call it a quit. One thing for sure, if they need you to work for them, why would they want you to pay them in advance? So I believe that those home-based work that require you to pay them in advance would be some sort of scam. Of course that is on my personal opinion.
