Should I Pay For Work at Home Job Listings?


Question: Should I Pay For Work at Home Job Listings?

Answer: The answer to whether you should pay for work at home job listings or to get hired is simple. No.

Legitimate employers do not charge you a fee when they hire you. They also don't charge you for start-up kits, for work at home directories, for lists of "jobs" or for anything else. In many cases, the person or organization will try and convince you that you'll earn the money back or that you're only paying for supplies. Don't fall for it and don't send money - it's a typical work from home scam and there are many of them.
