Watch out for work at home scams that will separate you from your hard earned money.  Here are some markers that should make you suspicious.
 
Many people have seen the advertisements for some of the work at home opportunities and have been afraid to try these jobs because of the danger that the ads are tied to one of the work at home scams that have become so prevalent. It seems there are always criminal elements that are anxious to rip other people off. However, if you are cautious about choosing the format of the work at home venue, you will be able to be in a better position to avoid traumatic losses from those who seek to gain money from illegal means.
 
Stay alert
 
The first inkling that the offers you see may be one of those work at home scams is the one that you just didn't take time to check out properly.  Maybe you only noticed the headline or subject line on the email that trumpets: "Earn 1000s weekly" or "Guaranteed income with no effort." These headlines may be a signal that this is a perfectly legitimate opportunity. It may also be something that should be checked out even more carefully than usual. It is important that you stay alert when reviewing home business opportunities. Don't make assumptions that may rise up to haunt you in the future.
 
Use Common Sense
 
You are less likely to get taken in by work at home scams if you review offers carefully and make certain that you use your common sense to avoid obviously false or misleading offers. Rely on your innate intelligence to look at the offers you see online and you are less likely to make stupid mistakes. Don't believe everything you see in the offer. Instead, think about what is being said and whether or not it is realistic with what you know of business opportunities. Even if it seems to be reasonable, you may want ask someone else to review the offer to see if there is some negative features that you have missed.
 
Get the details before you pay
 
In order to avoid work at home scams, another thing you should remember is get research and get all the details BEFORE you pay any money to the company. This includes money requested for such things as application fees, investment, good faith deposit or any other name that may be applied to the process. If a program says that it is free, make sure you understand whether or not it is actually free. 
 
Know who you're dealing with
 
Obviously, one of the best ways to avoid work at home scams is to know the principals in the offer that you are considering. This can be through direct contact with the company or individual making the offer. It may also be by recommendations of someone you know and trust. You can find a lot of information by Googling the name of the company or individuals involved. You can also check with the Better Business Bureau or similar organizations for information about the company or individual making the offer. Using these tips may not guarantee that you avoid a scam, but at least you shift the odds in your favor.
