i think it depends on the way you do it. you can work hard and manage to earn much money or you just do it for fun in your spare time. in that case you won't consider it as a job. cheers.

This is pritty much what i would of said but you have done it for me :) I mean half the ones on ebay or places like that probely are a scam, or give an 'ebook' on how to do it.

The ones that offer you work as long as you pay them something initially are usually scams. They call these initial payments anything ranging from upfront charges, business fees, consultation fees, security deposits, registration fees, and so on. The ones that seem too good to be true are usually scams. There is no easy or quick money. There are some legitimate work from jobs. But you need to usually hunt for them diligently. It took me the better part of 2 years to find one that really does pay me!

It is possible to earn money online I know that from experience, but there are a lot of scams, and it is sometimes hard to figure out which category the sites belongs to. I fell for one of the scams when I was new to online money making and I paid for a (pretty useless) list of survey sites. Don't do that, it is much better to read about the sites on different forums. If you follow the discussions you can read about other people's experiences before you join a certain site. Ohter people's experiences can help you avoid the scams, and they might prevent you from wasting your time and your money on the wrong sites.

All websites that deals with making money online are not scam. I work from home. I write articles for various online writing websites. Before joining any online money making website, it is better to know about them by searching in various search engines and forums.

I think a lot of them are scams, and you need to be very skeptical of them. If it asks you for money to participate, more than likely it is a scam.

Well most of them are scams but some of them are legitimate. The important thing is to verify if the site is really paying or not. Here in mylot, I get to learn about sites that are legitimate and those that are not considering that a lot of members share their opinions on those sites. Well, make sure that you do not invest right away since there are a lot of sites that are only after for your money. In my case, I have earned online without spending any. Though the earnings are not that high. There are those that will surely give you more earnings but you need to invest on them. Its just like business. Just be careful since like business you win some and you lose some. But surely here in mylot, you will surely gain.

Most people I know view internet working as undesirable. Mostly, they consider them scams. These sites cheat. It is a matter of time that the will take you too for a ride even though they could have paid you initially. A good example if asking for referrals so that they can have a bigger clientele to cheat!

There are scams in this "work at home jobs" actually. Websites that asks for money or membership fee for just doing a data entry job or surveys, etc. are considered scam (personal opinion). Think of it that a person/company that needs your service/time for doing a work for them will not ask to pay them first before doing a job/work for them. There are many websites that requires no fee in joining or doing a job like freelancing job websites. Hao!

Many of them are scams, but some are legitimate. It's just really hard to discern which are which. I try out with one for a few days and see how it feels to me If it something I enjoy and I seem to be making a reasonable amount of money for the time I am putting in then I stick with it until proven it is otherwise untrustworthy. I just don't know any other way to weed through all the different offers.

Not all of the work from home jobs are scams. I know a few and have already work for them. So far its all good. The only reason I am here is I enjoy the discussions and when I have nothing to do I love to read through discussions of other people. I think for work at home sites, you just need to have another person have a good experience before working for one. It does not hurt to ask other people to where they have tried in order to narrow down your searches on to which one will work for you and which are scams.
