By: rexleecorner
The headlines all seem too good to be true. "Work from home", "Make $3000 a month working part-time". We have all heard about these home business jobs. But we also hear just about as much about scams that hide in these exclamations. Most of us will just pass them buy and not pay any attention at all. But for every time one of us has had a 'lets check it out moment' there have been others who will follow thru and get mixed up in these 'opportunities'. One thing to keep in mind that is the people behind the scams would not risk getting exposed if it were not profitable. As long as there people to fall for it, there are people willing to put out those banners and take their money.

Research is going to be your best weapon against getting scammed from these home based businesses. This is going to mean more than just reading a bit on their website. Of course they are going to choose the few success stories to get you to buy what they are selling. You may be one of the lucky few that gets a business that is legitimate, but the odds are stacked against you. You will want to check very deeply into whatever business you are thinking of partaking in. check third party websites, message boards and other forums where people can post about these companies. You may find they are nothing more than money grabbing scams.

The better business bureau is a good place to look if you are thinking about involving yourself in a home business that you are unsure of. They will be able to tell you of any complaints they have on file. But remember, these types of companies often 'fly by night' and can work under several names at the same time. If the Better Business Bureau has a complaint on file, run and don't look back. However, if they no complaints on file, you may want to continue digging, with caution.

Another way to check out the business is to see if you can get a hold of them. Is there a phone number readily available? Is the telephone answered? Does a live person answer it? If you get a recording or a machine, is it easy to get an operator? If you can't and leave a message, does someone call you back in a timely manor? Do they respond to emails quickly? If the answer to any of these questions is 'no', run! Chances are very good that, if they cannot answer the phone or email before you start, they will not be there when you need them.

To be sure, there are many home base business scams all over the place. Research must be done before you decided to do business with them. It will also help you not to waste your money by getting scammed.
