Home Business vs. Scam

There is a lot of confusion for people getting into the work at home world about the difference between a legitimate home business and a scam. It is not surprising that people are thinking about it because work at home scams can be very damaging. Many people have spent a lot of money, wasted a lot of time and invested a lot into these scams that, in the end, result in no money earned.

The main point of confusion comes with the top work at home tip. Almost anywhere a person goes to inquire about working at home they will see the number one tip – Never pay to work at home. This is a great piece of advice, but when it comes to a home business it is not completely true.

There is a fine line between paying for a scam and paying for an opportunity. Many scammers have even caught on and have changed the way they do things to make themselves look legitimate, which causes even more problems. It used to be that if you received a product or sales kit for the investment that you could assume it is legitimate. Many times with a scam they will send something that they claim is a sales kit, so it makes it hard to see the difference between a scam and something real.

So how does a person keep themselves away from a scam when they want to get into a home business? All it takes is a little knowledge about keeping yourself safe. The following are two great tips that can help anyone avoid a scam and find a legitimate home business.

- Always check out the business. The Better Business Bureau is a nice start, but a person can not always get all the information. A search online with the company’s name and the word scam will turn up better results. When people get scammed they are quick to tell the world and there will be signs all over the internet to tell if a company is a scam. Additionally, if nobody has heard of the company or there is nothing that comes up online about them then that is also a good sign they are not legitimate.
- Know what the investment is for. A person should know exactly what they are getting for their investment. It should be something that is valuable and well worth the investment. For example, a person would not pay $100 as an investment for 5 brochures. That doesn’t make sense and is a sign of a scam.

These may seem like simple things to do, but they are one way to ensure that a company is real and not a scam. Just by doing these two simple things a person can really dodge a problem. They are simple things to do and they will not take much time. Usually scammers keep trying the same old game over and over. People will make sure that others are alerted so they can avoid the problems. That is one of the great things about home business and the online business environment – everyone looks out for everyone else.
