> Many online offers are scams. You must research the company. Quite often, there will be sufficient information regarding validity using any of the common search engines. Look for major, well known companies. If you are going to do telephone type work, try to find an "inbound" calls center - these tend to be customer service type positions. I have a close relative that did this type of work for a major telecom here in the states for several years providing customer service for individuals to solve their service/product complaints.

> Always get a physical address for the company. In the USA, companies must have a physical address for Tax purposes. Using that address check with the BBB and the local city/county attorney's office. If all they have is a POBOX then be very suspicious of any such company.

> ANY JOB, ANYWEHERE IN THE WORLD, THAT REQUIRES YOU TO PAY A FEE IS A SCAM!

> In the USA - ANY JOB THAT DOES NOT HAVE A TAX ID IN THE USA IS A SCAM! Ask for this ID and contact the IRS to verify the address of business.

> Read every contract carefully, be sure what type of employee you are... contract or employee of the company. THIS STATUS WILL HAVE A SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON YOUR TAX STATUS! Contract employees, in the USA< must pay all employement taxes, social security, Medicare, and personal income taxes from their pay! Many contract employees have been heavily fined and have faced jail time for failing to pay these taxes.

>> ALWAYS GET A CONTRACT of employment! Without this piece of paper, you will have no standing in court should you need to sue the "employer." The contract should clearly state where the company is "Doing Business As" or is "Incorporated." In the USA, most often, these are where the court of jurisdiction is located and are the only courts you most often are able to file complaint of breach with - no other court will have jurisdiction. You may also be bound by an arbitration clause; thus, losing your rights to file suit in a court of law for breach.
-- Many other countries have similar laws.


> Be careful of "piece work for pay" type jobs. All too often the piece work is "rejected" so that they pay you for only a small fraction of the items completed.

> So many more warnings; however that covers the majority.

Ehhhh.... working from home sounds fun, but there are many pro's and cons. The jobs that you described sound more like scams than anything else. Personally, I wouldn't like to work from home 100%. I like to know that I have an HQ and I know where I'm sitting when I'm there. Plus, working from home can get boring. Working from home is great for certain cases such as health issues, but the jobs your listed definitely sound like scams.
