More Resources To Find Work-At-Home Jobs
Want to find more jobs? Here are some of the sites I use to find jobs. These resources list hundreds of jobs in a variety of categories. Please note that the listings below are NOT jobs (jobs are posted above). These are services that provide work-at-home job announcements. Some are free and some aren’t. While you never ant to pay a company to hire you, it is okay to invest in a service that can help you find a job. The services below are the ones I use.
Telecommuting Job Databases (fee required to access these services)
FlexJobs– Has tons of work-at-home and flexible job options plus a personalized login system that will identify jobs that fit your criteria, ability to have multiple resume profiles, job search tips and checklists, and much more!

I received several questions on the recent Work-At-Home Success Survey about being able to tell the difference between a job and a scam. Here is some tips on evaluating job opportunities:
1. Does the employer ask for money or want to sell you materials or equipment? If so, it’s not a job. Legitimate employers never charge to hire people. In the traditional work world, you’d think a boss was nuts to charge you for paperclips or to put you on the payroll. The same is true in telecommuting. Some legitimate employers may require you to have specific tools or materials, but won’t care where you get them. Avoid any employer that requires you to buy equipment exclusively from its business. This is a common scam that results in you having expensive equipment and no job.
2. Does the company have a website hosted on a free site? If so, beware. Web hosting is so cheap these days that any company that can’t afford paid hosting can’t afford to hire you.
3. Does the company use a free commercial email account. If so, proceed with caution. As a way with managing spam and organizing email, many businesses are using Google’s free Gmail service. However, any business using Gmail or other free email (i.e. Yahoo, Hotmail, etc), should be investigated a little more thoroughly. Scammers often use these services to run their scams and get rid of the email after getting complaints.
4. Does the company have a street address and phone number? If not, proceed with caution. Many small and solo-business people avoid providing a street address and phone numbers for their privacy and protection. However, as a work-at-home wannabe, you want to be able to verify there is a legitimate business.
5. Does the job ask you to use your personal bank account to help it do business? If so, avoid at all costs. Legitimate employers will never ask you to manage its money through your personal account. Using common sense, what company would trust an employee, particularly one it’s never met with thousands of dollars? It wouldn’t. This scam could not only cost you thousands of dollars, but it could land you in jail for cashing a fake check.
6. Does the job involve stuffing envelopes, processing email, processing rebates, typing, typing ads, data entry or assembly work? If so, avoid at all costs. These types of jobs are nearly always scams. Occasionally a data entry job may be legitimate, but it will always require skills, experience or special equipment, and it will be free.
I just got an email job offer (by the way, you’re unlikely to get a job out of the blue from email), that had to do with accepting packages, repacking them and mailing them. This is a scam that could land you jail for accepting stolen goods. See below.

to undisclosed recipients Who would send a job offer to just anyone? A legitimate job offer will be directed to you by name.
II am seeking the service of a personal assistant to work for me due to my very busy schedules. There is no charge to become my P.A and you do not need previous experience. All i need is someone who is competent enough to handle my Personal and business at his/her spare time.Someone who can offer me the following services-below: Very few jobs require no skill or experience. Most personal assistant jobs I find at least require skills in a specific area.
1. Mail services (Receive my mails and drop them off at UPS store or Post office) RED FLAG – Odds are these good were bought by a stolen credit card. By sending them to you and having you resend, they put you in the way of the police instead of them.
2. Shop for Gifts
3. Bill payment (pay my bills on my behalf) Most likely you’ll receive a fake check to make these payments.
4. Sit for delivery (at your home) or pick items up at nearby post office at your You’ll be easy for the police to arrest when they track the stolen goods to you.
The content of the packages are Art Materials and Paintings, clothings, business and personal letters. All expenses and taxes will be covered by me. You will work between 15 to 20hrs a month.
The pay is $500 weekly.That is not a bad offer is it?
I need your service because I am constantly out of town. I own an Art Gallery in London.I will be returning to USA in november so this process will be going on till then. How can he own an art gallery and not have an employee on site to accept packages?
If I were to mail you money to do my shopping plus upfront payment for your service, where will you want it mailed to? How should your name appear on the payment. Again this will probably be a bogus check, which you won’t know until you cash it, spend it and then get a call from the bank to repay it.
