With my previous posts, you are probably convinced that there are quite a few work-from-home opportunities online.  Work-at-home data entry jobs are popular options for most people, because they don’t require creative skills. If you have constant access to the Internet, are computer literate, and have the discipline, then you can succeed in data entry.

Because of the popularity of this online job opportunity, a lot of scammers take advantage of the people who are interested in work-at-home data entry jobs but do not know how to look for one.  If you are interested in data entry jobs, be wary about websites who don’t give clear details about the job. Another common sign of a scam is the offer of outrageous amounts of money for such a simple task.  If you think about it, if someone can earn over $30,000 per month by simply transferring one form of data to another, then everyone would be doing it.

Of course, it makes no sense to pay a company for you to get hired.  Some of these scammers use the word registration fees to make it sound business-like.  No matter what they call the fee, a scam is a scam. The golden rule with finding a job online is to never pay a company to hire you.

By trusting your instincts, you can avoid scams while finding work-at-home data entry jobs.  Research on the company and see if other people have had previous experiences with them.  A great way to find legitimate data entry jobs is to use a good freelance site. Most of them have escrow services to ensure you get paid for work accomplished. Check this post for one such site.

If you want to land a legitimate work-at-home data entry job, you can also try to offer your services to a company.  The worst thing they can do is say ‘no thanks’. On the other hand, they might be impressed with your eagerness and offer you some work. It might take some time, but with persistence you’ll surely find a good paying client.
