Do work at home jobs actually work or are they scams?

I've seen a few answers to people questions that have a link and a description of work at home jobs in which you take surveys and read email to get paid. I'm suspicious of this because they seem like spam to me, and if it was that easy to work at home and get paid $900-$1,400 a month, why aren't more people doing it?! So anyone with real experiences working at home for those work-at-home sites?

You also have to qualify for the surveys, so it's not really worth your time unless you have nothing to do... More

its very very difficult to make a decent income while doing data entry from home, and you're unlikely to get the names of genuine employers in a public place like this. I'd recommend doing a search of the previous 'best answers' on yahoo, I got some good information that way.
