I've been looking at some of the posts here and was wondering what to you legitamizes a company, and what would define it as a scam.

I ask because I think that people believe that if you have to invest money into the company , and your being paid is dependent upon commission, is this a scam ?
If so, what about real estate agents ? , Medical billing agents at home ? or the hundreds and hundreds of folk who SELL for a living.

I identify a real work at home opportunity as one thay pays real money, when they say they will, and how much I've earned. Opportunities do not always come free, so I measure the investment against the possible earnings. I measure my ability to do what they are asking, I measure the history of the company and the quality of their product. I don't just say something is a scam, because I have to invest money to get started.
On the other hand, it is also very important that the company is transparent that they are hiring partners, no just employees.
What are your thoughts ? What makes most of these "opportunities" scams in your point of view ?

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

I had a good job had just received supervisor promotion, everything was going great until my 4 year old son broke his femur bone and was put in a full body caset called spica cast for 3 months, I had to quit my job to care for him, but it was hard with just my husbands income so I started looking into work from home opportunities. I found what I was looking for and could not be any happier for now I am home with my son and making income at the same time, I have also made many new friends!!

A legitimate work from home job/business for me involves some product or service being sold or provided.There has to be moneies being made on the tail end for there to be a payment or commission made.They should be members of BBB,offer a real address, and a 100% money back guarantee if there is a fee involved.Any fee should be small/manageable.(Under $30 for sure) There should also not be any business monthy fees to run the business if youa re making them money and earning commission.You should also not be committed to anything long-term or be able to cancel easily at any time.I work for a legitimate company that has been around for almost 30yrs.I have been receiving a check each month since Oct 2006.I am a marketer for a wellness company and they pay me a residual income to refer others to the company to shop.A simple concept of customers referring customers.How nice it is to get paid to do the things I am already doing. Imagine you local grocery store paying you monthly to refer friends,family,strangers that visit your free website to shop there.They need those things anyway and will have to buy them month after month no matter what right? The company makes money and they can still pay out 51% of their profits to people like me.It makes sense to put money in the pockets of everyday families rather than the rich but either way find something that you love to do that you can stand behind for years to come otherwise it won't last.If you don't beleive in it neither will anyone else.Good luck to you all!

Hello Everyone,

I don't agree that all the work at home companies are scams, I am working at home as a transcriptionist and I have many friends who are into the same business, and they are happy to work at home. So I won't agree that all the work at home jobs are scams.

How I see it, a lot of people come into work from home opportunities and expect cash with very little to no effort at all. When they don't get the cash....the companies are called scams. The start up fees are basically you starting your own business. What about the people starting a new McDonalds or Taco Bell franchise? It costs hundreds of thousands of dollars and lots of your time. Direct Sales Companies cost a few hundred.There are so many millionaires out there from direct sales, They didn't get there by talking to 10 15 20, They got there by talking to 1000s. If you don't get lots of no's for your company than you are not doing your job. It's not a failure or a scam, you just have to be committed enough to move on to the next and the next. You also have to have the belief that the company, product, and the person who sponsored you into it.I found that company and that product and the sponsor to succeed and I am moving forward. I also have a true belief in the product I am sharing. I have made it my mission in life to share this with everyone.

I work when I want to and I love my job because it is fun! I am my own boss and I am making money while still able to stay home and raise my 3 children! I used to work long hours, weekends and holidays as a nurse and I missed out on a lot with my family.

I completely agree. People think they don't pay to work, but they have to buy clothes to wear there, gas to get there, most pay for their insurance benefits as well. I paid a small fee to start with my at home business and so for it's been worth it :) www.freedomathometeam.com/hballard Check it out!!

I agree, just because a work at home opportunity has a fee, that does not mean it is a scam. I think there is some confusion about this.

In general, work at home jobs do not require any monetary investment, however your income may be limited.

Home based businesses on the other hand may have some start up fees involved, however, your earning potential can be much higher.

Dawn Modlin, What type of work is it that you do from home? I looked up the website and it gives you nothing but one paragraph but doesn't tell you what they do.

Kenyatta,
I completely agree with your thoughts. First of all, just because you have to invest money doesn't immediately mean it is a scam. I work from home and earn an income that is paid but I did have to invest up front to get started. That invested money has given me the support of a legitimate company who provides me with all of my websites, maintains them, processes all of the orders I take and offers unbelievable training. To expect to start a home business or to work from home without any out of pocket expenses is living in a fantasy world!

Your second point of measuring the investment against the possible income is right on target. My work pays very generously for the amount of overhead cost I had to pay. I covered the cost in my first week of working!

Great points and questions!
