I think 99% of them are all scams and I sure do not know where to look or go to find the 1% that isn't. Most sites ask you to pay a fee upfgront and most of them are scams from the get go. I think alot of us have lost money online at one point and time just to try and earn online. I won't pay a dime to earn online anymore.

Most data entry and transcripting starts in an office. Eventually you can start working in your home. First, they start you in the office to give you the proper training and you have to prove that you're good enough to do it on your own at home. Medical Transcripting does require a degree and you have to keep up by attending classes every year. the reason is because there's always new diseases, terms, medicines, etc. It's more legit, but it can be hard. You have to find a doctor that wants to hire you and you have to prove you're not going to mess up. there are no mistakes allowed. you could type transcripts for a psychologist. i'm not sure if that can be done at home, but those are good jobs, too. anything online that requires money from you is a scam. Especially when they make it sound like you can make $5000/wk doing nothing. lol.

There are legit places to find Data Entry jobs. You first need to find the companies that are hiring Data Entry reps to work from their home. A great resource I found is www.sohojobs.org You will be able to apply directly with the company that you want to work for. Most pay per hour too! I would check them out. It really helped me when I was looking :o) I hope this helps ~ Teri K (id:au8tkat) "working from home thanks to sohojobs.org)

Hi BYOLA2871! Data entry is a job, not a business. The sites that you see online are generally scams. If you're looking to do data entry work from home, you need to search for a telecommuting data entry job. To find these, go to job searching sites, such as Monster or HotJobs, and search through the data entry jobs using the keyword "telecommuting" Be sure to have experience in the data entry field, though, as a telecommuting job is just like any other job, except for the location.

Yeah I think most data entry jobs we see online are scams. You can make money on mylot by enterting data as we are doing now. I think that this is the easiest and most legit data entry site online. But there are some legit jobs out there.. you just have to find them.
