Increasing popularity of data entry jobs, filling out forms and typing jobs online is leading to more and more scams. If you are looking for this type of job do your homework first.
How To spot A Scam?
90% of data entry jobs are scams. The Scammed individuals are most of the people who want to be at home with their children. There are legit jobs, more or less those are a rarity in such a big scam industry. If your work-giver from the company you are applying to requires you any fee it is most definitely a scam. You will NEVER have to pay a real contractor a fee. You are working for them, so why would you be paying them? In your normal 9-5 job are you paying your boss? Stop the conversation here and discontinue any further discussion. These contractors will tell you to :
a) Send $ for training
b) Send $ for software
c) Send $ for supplies or material
If they don’t ask you for a sample writing, resume or any other document, proof on which you could be judged “good” or “bad” for the job, and only require ANY sort of FEE for the application it is a SCAM! Period. Many websites can be so convincing you could fall for it quite easily, but this is the scammers intention and professionalism. To convince you of something real while in fact it is unreal, not existing. Usually the supposed fees are being used for a “special software” to perform the job. A legit business will provide you typing software for free and will in no case require any funds to be sent.
