Work from Home Site Shines the Light on Rise in Number of Work from Home Scams


NSW, Australia -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/26/2011 -- With the current state of the economy many people are looking for new and innovative ways to work from home. The term “Make Money Online” has literally tuned into a multi-billion dollar industry. The combination of rampant unemployment and the growth of the internet have created a rich environment for people to strike it big online; but just like all things, where the good go the bad tend to follow.

Most “internet marketers” find out very quickly that making money online is not quite as easy as it seems. All it takes is a simple Google search for the terms “make money online” or “work from home” and users are given literally millions of home based businesses to choose from.

Most, if not all, beginning internet marketers get sucked into a few bad “make money online programs” before they make even one cent on the internet. Some of these programs boarder on “scam” and most new online marketers are left wondering if making money online is even possible? Some even arrive to the point where they think “the only way to make money online is by claiming to be able to teach others how to make money online!” A scary realization indeed.

While there are certainly many scams taking place on the internet, making money is entirely possible for those pragmatic enough to discern between “too good to be true” and “too good to pass up.”

In his website, Tom White, who has seen unprecedented success with his own “work from home” ventures, reveals common work from home scams in the industry and explains how to avoid them. He assures readers that “It’s not all doom and gloom and there are hundreds of genuine work from home opportunities and online training programs out there. It’s really frustrating that the reputation of a growing, dynamic industry is affected by a minority of people,” Says Mr. White.

For novice internet marketers in particular, avoiding the common pitfalls of starting out online can save thousands of dollars and months of wasted time. Beginners (and even experienced professionals) can come to the website and get educated on the most popular home business scams taking place right now on the internet.

The site boasts a wide array of informative articles with titles such as: “Should You Pay an Upfront Fee for a Work from Home Opportunity?” and “Rise in number of make money online, inflated promises & hype” which help readers discern between the good and the bad, and in the end, shows them which ones to leave at the door.
