Recently while browsing on Careerbuilder's home page, I noticed a banner that claimed working on the internet can make you $4,000.00 a month and you can do this from home. I also noticed that you had to pay (on the internet) a $9.99 fee for 'shipping'. Most internet scams would ask for this kind of money.
Unfortunately, no matter what you intend to do for your next job, you will undoubtedly have to venture out onto the web. For most, this is an unknown territory with the fear of clicking on some banner or ad that will ask you to fill out TONS of info only to find that you have signed yourself up for another 'newsletter' or similar correspondence which claims to be 'FREE' but ends up costing you either money or something much more precious: Time.
Internet Marketers sell their 'EBooks' online for various amounts of cash in exchange for you to have access to download a copy of their 'EBook'. This can be a fair trade if the content of the book is of any value to you.
A few months ago, I was introduced to a site that was all about showing you how to spot scams. They did a lot of research on who were scam artists and who weren't, then posted it for the world to see.
There ARE scams out there. Learn how to spot a scam, and how to spot a genuine advertisement for work. We are going to be taking a look at how to spot a scam on the internet over the next few days. Stop back and see how you can avoid such scams!
Wishing you the best,
