How to Avoid Online Job Scams?  Read This...


1. Use common sense! Avoid websites/job offers/internet programs that offer unrealistic claims.  General rule >> If the offer seems too good to be true, it probably is.

"Earn $10 for every 30-second task."
"Earn $10 per online ad viewed. "
"Guaranteed home job for $1500 weekly."

Above are just a few examples of unrealistic claims.  Now what company (or owners) in their right mind would really give you these kind of offers?


2. Avoid paying or investing just to get online jobs.

Even in the "off-line" world, companies that require you to pay certain fees before giving you a job always sends a red flag.  Same with online jobs - there are hundreds of online jobs that you can get for free at popular freelancing sites like odesk.com and elance.com. 


3.  Search online jobs at legitimate sources
like odesk and elance.  Don't just "google" online jobs because most likely, you'll end up finding scams.


4. Do a background check or internet research on the company/online job that you are interested in.  Companies that offer legitimate online jobs/internet programs are very transparent when it comes to their contact details, office location, and other important company details.

Check online community forums and ask around.  People who got scammed usually share their bad experiences thru forums, blogs or social media sites.

and lastly,


5. Avoid "get-rich quick and easy" online jobs/internet programs.  There's no such thing period!  Remember, online jobs with decent income is not quick nor easy.  People who believe otherwise are usually the ones that get scammed.


Knowledge is power >> Educate yourself!  :)
