Here are the 6 biggest rip-off work from home business opportunities of all time:
1. Medical Billing
With the rising cost of health care and the large bureaucratic insurance companies, medical billing seems like it should have a lot of potential to make you some serious money. The truth, however, is that very few doctors do their own billing anymore.
The first issue, though, is that you need a license to be a medical biller in most states. Secondly, doctors outsource their medical billing to companies, not individuals. So any money you have to pay upfront for software and training to be a medical biller? You can kiss it goodbye…
2. A List Of Companies Looking For Home Workers…
If only you could buy a list of companies who are looking for hard-working and dedicated people just like yourself to do some tasks in the comfort of your home that they will pay you for… Well, you can!
Only it will be a generic list of companies that don’t do this sort of thing. Because no real company hires workers like this. So save your money – don’t buy the list.
3. Typing At Home
If you have any form of computer skills at all, it would seem that a typing at home position would be a great work from home business opportunity.
Unfortunately, though, the only typing you would be doing is to try and place ads to convince more people to type at home for money. Essentially, you are just perpetuating the scam!
4. Email Processing
Imagine if you could earn $10 for every email you sent… I bet you could send 25 emails an hour for a very long time. Unfortunately, though, is that email processing is very similar to the “Envelope Stuffing” scam below.
And just like the “Typing at Home” scam above, in order to make any money from home, you would only be sending emails in order to get more people to sign up to process emails!
5. 1-900 Numbers
1-900 numbers cost money to dial. The longer the scammer can keep you on the line once you call, the more money they make off of you. Do not call any 1-900 numbers.
6. Envelope Stuffing
This is, perhaps, the most recognizable work from home scam of all time. You are promised to make $.50 – $1.00 per envelope you stuff! Never mind that machines can do this menial task 500 times faster than the average human…
These are the 6 biggest scam work from home business opportunities out there. This does not mean that all opportunities are bad, however. In fact, there are plenty of real work from home business opportunities… and there are lots of people who make a great income from the work they do at home. These 6 examples are just the ones you need to avoid! As with anything, you need to take the time to evaluate a work from home offer on its merits and avoid opportunities like the ones above.
