How to stay safe from `work from home` scams
Sadly, there are those who prey on the vulnerable and naive. There are several old scams still running these days, some of which have been transformed into modern day online versions of old favourites.
Home assembly kits are another favourite. Here you allegedly buy a kit for £x, assemble it and the seller guarantees to buy it back at £y. Actually you will be left out of pocket because having assembled whatever you were asked to assemble, you will be told it is sub-standard and your money will not be returned for the kit.
There are endless scam emails online, many of them incredibly convincing. If you don`t know the sender personally and recognise their email address, don`t click on any links, open anything or reply to anything. Just delete it. You will not have missed out on anything.
Choose Real Opportunities
Working from home takes genuine commitment and hard work. So, if you`re great with kids consider child minding or parties or if you`re good with computers go for something like a UK Affiliate Marketing Program. Its a big world out there and despite the current gloom, there are a lot of opportunities.
