5 Most Important Scam Alerts for Work from Home Jobs

5 Most Important Scam Alerts before Bidding for Work from Home Jobs

Most work at home moms are so desperate to get jobs that they fall right into scam traps. This would not happen if you raise the antenna of your scam-detection radar before bidding for work from home jobs.

Well, you have to be very careful when you choose any work from home options and clearly demarcate the frauds and scammers from authentic job providers.

Here are some tips that would give you some indications of a ?real? employer from a fraud.

1. Company Name In Ad

Check for the details of the company or the individual giving the ad There is always a profile of the company and the person heading it. Never go for bizarre names such as ?myfreelancercompany? or ?seoexpertcompany?.

If a person does not want to give his name, then probably he does not want to be traced if there are any future troubles.

2. Real Contact Address

Authentic job providers would give authentic email address to which you are required to reply. Job postings that give some numerical values and nonsense email address should be avoided right from the beginning.

3. Application and Interview

If the job provider is serious about getting the job done to his expectation then he would have a proper process of analyzing the application and zeroing down on the right candidate.

With so many people in need of work from home jobs there are surely going to be hundreds of applications for any single posting. If you find people asking you to work immediately after your reply to the ad, then ?wait, analyze and then work?.

4. Clear Cut Requirements

A clear idea of what is required from you and what are the ways you can accomplish the work, is evidently seen when job providers are not frauds. There is no hurry in the selection process.

You are first given time to check what work has already been done and what is required at present. Then there are the rules, policies, duties and so on. Without giving you any idea of the company, asking you to begin work is a ?sure shot scam?.


5. Work Samples

No real employer would want you to work without seeing your previous samples of your work. Remember; work from home or freelancing is completely based on your samples because of the basic remote management, hence if anyone asks you to work before looking into your samples should be avoided.

There are thousands of great employers out there providing good pay for your work and if you are lucky enough to identify them, then you can enjoy the bliss of managing your home along with earning a lot of money.



  1. I totally agree with this. If it’s too easy to get the job, it’s probably a scam. Also not sharing the company name is shady. I once had someone try to rope me into Amway that way.

  2. Great tips, especially for those who are planning to work at home. I had the same problem years ago, but somehow it’s not really a scam. The company went bankrupt and didn’t pay us after months of working for them. There’s always a risk in working online and when employers run away from you, there’s not much you can do.

  3. This is really good advice for people whom are working from home. Such a helpful post indeed and one to share!

  4. Wow, these are such a great guide for all of us. I myself encountered having a fraud employer and after my work done he did not pay my work and never contact him anymore.

  5. This is really helpful. I have read about some unpleasant experiences from doing freelancer work online. I will share this info with my friends too. Thanks!

  6. This was not only an informative post plus a must required post. Scam in the name if job has increased a lot.

  7. Very informative post. I don’t know if I’m capable pf work at home tho.
