Does anyone know of a legitimate 'work from home' job that doesn't require any money up front?
I have seen countless ads for 'work from home' jobs that claim you'll be earning thousands of dollars per month, but when I look into them, I see that they require me to give THEM a couple hundred dollars before I even start! Something about 'the cost of start-up materials' or something...? I don't have any money to risk like that, but need to work from home while I care for my elderly grandmother. I have a marketing degree and am very comfortable with the Internet and Microsoft Office. I can type 83WPM too, so any sort of data entry/clerical/support specialist job would be perfect. If it matters, I live on the Jersey Shore. Any suggestions? And no, I'm not kidding. Most of the work-from-home jobs listed on Monster.com, CareerBuilder.com, and craigslist.org ALL require an investment up front. Thanks.

The only ones that arent scams are working for a company directly. Why dont you put up some flyers in your area and see what happens. Good Luck
