Are home typing jobs legitimate?

July 21, 2010 7:20pm CST
There are many home typing positions that are being offered on the net. But, are they legit? There is a website that I have read wherein you will just need to have an access to paypal account and there is a minimal fee for "training" provided by the company. There were testimonies posted but this can be possibly done by the owner itself. Although, seem skeptical about it, I want to know what sites and if there were real people that receive payments by these sites.

There is no legitimate home typing jobs. They will ask you to join for one time membership and blinded you will all the opportunities they offer but that is not true.When you entered the site and pay the registration, you will be receiving so many emails from different site to read and that was it, no typing jobs. I have a friend who have been scammed before by this online typing jobs and she waste $50, for this stupid site.

Thanks for sharing that experience of your friend. At least, people are now aware of some modus operandi online that will take away their money and will deliver avalanche of spam.

There are not really any legit home tyoing jobs as such - especially the ones who ask for money...You can still do typing from home which will pay you but they normally pay fairly low & this is through freelencer sites such as odesk & freelancer.

There are sites that are legit and there are scam sites as well. Be very careful in choosing the sites you are joining.

Hi,kristeena, most of them if not all of them are mere scam sites. They will ask you to pay soem amount. If you pay, they will send a list of companies that would give you jobs.But mostly you won't find any real jobs with those addresses.I would say better stay away from these companies.
