Option 1 is where you go to an office and work for 10-6, maybe some more time and earn your monthly paycheck.
The other option, and one that has been explored by a lot of people nowadays, is to take up clerical work from home jobs.
Here is a quick snapshot of points you would need to note for you to deduce that the clerical jobs from home is credible or not.
o An opportunity from an 'actual' company that exists in your locality has less chances of duping you.
Thus, clerical jobs from home that are advertised from them could be credible enough.
Though, there have been instances of companies next-door shutting their businesses overnight, but such occurrences has been few.
o Any opportunity that asks you to pay money upfront is clearly a scam.
Stay away from them at all times.
Think about it - Why would a company ask you to pay money for you to do their job? Ideally, it should be the other way around, with the companies paying you for your efforts.
In most cases like this, you would find that the companies would demand this small amount of money as registration fees.
Text like "We want to see if you are serious enough for this job" would lure you into paying the money upfront.
It could well be a small amount like $30-$40 or thereabouts, but resist from paying the money.
o Envelope Stuffing Jobs - Be on the lookout for envelope stuffing jobs.
In the entire portfolio of work from home jobs, these are the ones that are often not found legit.
Envelope stuffing is a very basic job, which some companies do prefer people doing it from home.
