Does anyone know of an online Data Entry job that is legitimate?
I am trying to find an online data entry job that is legitimate and not a scam. I am presently confined to home, and I need to make an income for myself. I do not want to be burden on my family. I have tried to find information about online surveys, etc., but many of the survey companies charge $49 before they give you access to the companies that do surveys. Meanwhile, many of the survey companies that supposedly pay the better money, only operate in the U.S. The remaining survey companies pay $1 a survey IF you match a "profile". I decided that I need to find real work. If anyone knows of a real company that pays cash (preferably using PayPal) for a good data entry operator, or even for medical transcription online, I would really appreciate the help. I can do medical transcription quite well, but the medical transcription companies want people that work at home to have special transcription equipment. Not an option for me at the present because I am strapped for cash.

Sorry, but no. Any company or anyone that charges upfront for an 'online job' is a scam artist, no if's and's or but's :) It's very unfortunate that there are so many unscrupulous people out there, but there certainly are.

Just get a job, there is no magical way to make money from home easily or everybody would be doing it.

Sorry but I've never heard of one that's not a scam. Why don't you form your own business, offering to do data entry? Then you could verify the identities of the people who contact you with jobs. Put up cheap or free ads all over the net. Good luck.

In the UK there is something known as the Data Protection Act. In effect, it says that Companies are not permitted (by law) to allow 3rd parties access to their customers personal data without the customers permission. Needless to say, this put a stop to most home-work envolope stuffing and data entry jobs... More
