Is my job offer legit or a scam? Are all work from home jobs scams or is this a growing trend?
I was offered administrative assistant job based in another state. I applied not knowing it was work from home. I did not have to pay and it does not come across as a scam. Is working from home a new legit job opportunity or are they all scams?

It's a SCAM. Nobody hires an administrative assistant without a single face to face interview. Even if it were a legitimate work from home job, you would still ALWAYS have an interview with your employer in person. They would also have to issue you an I-9 and W-4 form before you could start - if they have not then it's... More
