    Abney Associates Tech Blog: 3 work-at-home online jobs that aren’t scams


    Many people see working at home as the Holy Grail of job perks and thanks to the Internet it’s totally possible. Whether you want a full-time job or just want to make a little extra money on the side, the options are there if you know where to look.

    Here are three jobs that you can do from home – and the site and tools you need to make them happen.

    But first, I should mention that a lot of “work from home” jobs you’ll find online are scams. You really need to be alert when searching.

    Here are some quick guidelines:

    • Always make sure the company is      legitimate and has a solid online history.
    • Watch out for jobs that promise      outrageous amounts of money a week or month.
    • Never pay any money – such as      application processing fees – up front.
    • Never give out personal      information in your application that a typical company wouldn’t ask for.
    • Do your research.

    With those caveats in mind, let’s look at some jobs.
