I am in financial turmoil and I really need someone to advice me. I cannot work cause of my bad health and am having trouble paying my bills. I only live on child support so that income dosent even cover the bills. Not to mention it dosent even give me enough for nessesities. Does anyone know how I could possibly make some money online for free and letgitimatly? All I find is scams out there. I hear of people making so much doing surveys, and I have tried but all I clear is less than $10 a month. I need alot more to pay these bills. Please help me.Thanks

I have a legitimate work at home job that pays me by the hour. I do research studies for a company that is basically paid through state and federal government agencies, as well as some private entities. I have been working with the company for over a year now and you can choose the hours you want to work. You are required to work a minimum of 15 hours per week. If you are interested, please add me as a friend and then send me a message. I will then send you all the information to apply for this position. There are no start up costs!! This is a LEGITIMATE work from hom JOB.

My suggestion is to find things around your house that you no-longer use or need. and start a ebay account and list them on ebay for extra income. I was making $1,200 plus extra a month adding stuff i no longer needed or used anymore. Either do ebay or Craigslist. they are almost alike but the difference is. Craigslist customers come to you you dont need to ship item out. Ebay you list a shipping cost and customers pay shipping plus what you make on your item. Then you have to ship it but you can print shipping labels through paypal. And ship item from your home so you dont have to even waste a trip to the post office.!!

Hi smartone, Thanks for the advice. I won't do ebay. I tried to sell on there and no one would buy. And I don't have the money for mailing. So I might do craigslist. I already have a account there. That is a good idea. I will try it. But that will take time to. Thanks

There is this one site that offers online jobs which could pay you by the hour or at a fixed price set by the job poster. There are a lot of jobs being offered here everyday, but I am a bit choosy so I haven't had any luck yet. If you are interested, send me a message. Thanks!

I don't know if this helps, but do you have any experience programming? Are you using a Mac? My at home situation has changed recently, and I needed to find a work from home job. I'm trying out creating applications for the iPhone / iTouch. If you have a Mac, you can try it out for free, and then if you like it, it's about $99 USD to enroll and be able to sell your applications in iTunes. Even if you don't have an iTouch or iPhone, there's a simulator that looks and acts like an iPhone that will run on your computer, which will let you test your applications. There's even a free course from Stanford on making applications in iTunes U (in iTunes), which can help teach you how to make applications.

Unfortunatley I don't have a mac. It sounds very complicated to me so I think I will pass. But thanks for the suggestion!

I am in the same situation as you. I made some money and I invested it in webhosting and it seemed fine. I was making some money on websites. Then my sites were suspended. I think I just got scammed. It's really terrible the way some people take advantage of other people's needs.

Yes, you are right. I just can't believe there are so many scams out there. I even got one in the regular mail yesterday. I don't know how they got my info. I will never pay anything to make money. Then you know it is a scam. I am so sorry you went through that. But we know now.

If you want to make more money online learn the affiliate marketing. With affiliate marketing you can make much more money, it is not easy but not difficult also. I have my website and i do make more than $ 10 per month ... you can visit my website link is in my profile. All the best.

I dont think I would do very well at that. Is it very hard to learn? If it has to do with selling I don't think I can. I can't sell at all. Thanks for your response.

we both are in the same situation right now. i cant find work offline because i am disabled, hearing impaired. and the money i am getting monthly is just enough for our food on our table, kids' allowance to school and the water bill. so far it is in the internet where i get my other income, and it takes a lot of work, coz im just a free member in most of the sites i am getting paid in, one of them i paid for $10 to upgrade and now gives me weekly earning but it is still not that much to live without financial worry. i do have so many bills here, internet, electricity plus my house, which im a so very delayed now, im working on paying it up to date. if you like you can check on my profile and see where i am earning, my goal is to earn $100 per month now, and i think im doing well in it, i know its not that much to many people here, but it is really a big amount here even though its not that mcuh to cover all my bills, at least i can pay some. im doing it slowly but surely, dont want to waste my time on scam sites anymore. try writing too, all those small amounts, they do add up at the end of the month.
