I am a mother of 4 kids and stretching my family's income is not enough. My kids needs are growing and I must look for other means of earning. Two months ago, I started searching for work at home jobs. Since then, I've been receiving a bulk of emails everyday offering me promising income. As I checked their sites, the more I get confused. I am too afraid to get scammed! Can you please help me with this?

I have been earning online for many years. And I judge each program individually. Maybe there is a scam survey site...it doesn't mean ALL survey sites are scam. I personally never pay anyone for an opportunity to earn. You can always do your research on them by doing a search on them...if they are a known scam, you will see many search items stating this. Also if the money sounds to good to be true....it usually isn't true.

The best thing you can do is not to rely on online job fairs. Seek for jobs where you have trusted friends working in the said company.

,.The best thing to do is to know the company you`re going to get connected. Be wise and alert as well. You may search or have an investigation about the background of the company to get rid from scammed. Don`t hurry to say "YES" on their offers. Pray always to God to guide you always on what you`re going to do.

Since you're looking for a job, you better secure yourself by researching more about those companies who were offering you promises. Be wise enough. Be sure that those companies belongs to the government agencies. It's not easy to be far from our families working abroad. If something bad would happened to you there, who would be the one to support your family? Don't easily believe on the promises offered by some companies in which you're not yet sure.

To avoid being scammed in work at home jobs, you must look for a worthful jobfitted on my skills and abilities. You should make sure that yjier job is legal has a permit from the government. Or to make sure, you would apply on government agencies to make it sure that it is a legal work. In your case, if you confused about thier offerring, its good to you to find another job that is legal.

For myself I have found the best way to make money online is to use my own ideas and skills. This way I know for sure that I won't be scammed. There is no quick fix answer to your problem. Making a decent amount of money online that you can live on takes time.

The best advice I can give you is to never pay anything to get started. These are usually scams. A few years ago, I paid like $60 to get started on an at-home job, and got scammed out of my money and was not able to ever get it back, so just be careful! Good luck!
