|
| After being laid-off twice this year, I'm giving some
| thought to doing some work from home.
|
| Has anyone on this list ever signed up for one of
| those "Careers from Home" websites? I've noticed that
| Monster is advertising many jobs through these sites,
| such as TW, Web Developer, and so on.
|
| If anyone has some input regarding these sites, I'd be
| interested to know your thoughts.


They are scam artists. They *say* they have work-at-home jobs, but they are
lying. Their goal is to get you to their Web sites and snooker you out of your
money.
There are several flavors of this scam. They may be one company just changing
names. They even go so far as to say they have *internal* jobs for which you
do not have to pay a fee to apply. But I believe that's a bald-faced lie.
