Avoiding Online Scams

For every legitimate work at home opportunity out there, there are probably 10,000 scammers. I've been fortunate enough to not fall prey to any of them in the years I've been working online from home, but I know many others who have. It is unfortunate there are so many people misled by things like this - and who still think that earning income from home is not really a legitimate option. One resource that I have come across - in helping others NOT become victims of scams is called, "Stop Being A Victim". It usually sells for $25 but you can get a copy for only $5. It is WELL worth the full price. It is a very rare occasion when I find something dealing with internet income options that I find useful enough to talk about at all. I'd go so far as to say I would like to see this book end up in the hands of EVERY person seeking income online, no matter where or how they get it. If you'd like to know where to get it for $5 (and potentially save thousands in rip-offs later) just send a PM. You'll learn how rip-off schemes are designed to target your dreams and your pocketbook, why they are destined to fail shortly after the bank accounts of a select few are padded nicely, and how to spot and avoid potential scams like hyip, some mlm, etc. Do you have tips, insight or resources to help others avoid being scammed? Part of what I "do" is educating people about the realities of working from home, and I'd like to know what others do to protect themselves from being scammed. Websites you visit, investigations you do about a company, etc?
