All Work at Home Jobs are Scams- Work at Home Myths

Work at Home Jobs are Scams- Myth #1

All Work at Home Jobs are Scams?

This common work at home myth is one I see a lot of and one that gets under my skin the most. I have no idea how many times I have shaken my fist at my computer screen as I read those words from advice givers.  I know that many of the people who have said “all work at home jobs are scams” are pure in heart with their statement. I too once believed this to be true.

Glad you posted this do more videos I like them :). Yes far too many people do not research for themselves to know if something is legit or not. They hear something, a comment, statement from someone who may have never work at home before or who did run across a scam or two and then said it was true of all. A member of my congregation once “attacked” me once saying I was robbing people and hoodwinking others to join in on the scam. Which wasn’t true at all. I would never do such a thing most certainly not knowingly doing such a thing. It was because she had been misinformed and went with it. I too have run across my fair share of scams and crooks however I began to fortify myself knowledge, became armed with it so I was well informed prior to taking on a job. With the internet there is rampant room for misguided souls to disperse their falsehoods and gain an audience of folks who blindly go with it. Good job bringing the light to the darkness of working from home¦

I recently talked to a woman who owned a print store. I wanted to see what it would cost to have a few t-shirts printed up for this site to giveaway to readers. When I explained my website the woman gave me a ‘holier than thou’ look- snarling her nose. She then rambled on about something that I was no longer listening to until I heard her say

“You just found yourself an easy way to make quick money”.

My mouth literally fell open. I looked at her, laughing, and said “I will let that one go. Have a nice day.” And walked out of her store.
