    Are there any legitimate home-based internet jobs? Can you share the link?

    While I was browsing the internet, I came across to a site that offers online job. Unfortunately, the site is asking for money/ credit card.

    The idea of a job is that your employer pays you.  The demand for home-based jobs is high, so you can bet that the scammers are doing everything in their power to capitalize on it.  Avoid any online job that requires an upfront cost unless you have previous experience with the particular company.

    Generally, you can find legitimate work-from-home online work in the form of data entry (which I've hubbed about), ghostwriting, medical/legal coding, and call center support.  None of these require an upfront fee (if they are real jobs, that is.) 

    I would suggest that you head over to the WAHM forums at The women (and men) found there are very supportive of fellow work-from-homers and can point you in the right direction.

    Try browsing the sureboom forums. If you happen to be billingual this is a major advantage. There's also some call centre based work.

    Not really, but there are a few ways you can get a little extra money. I take surveys online for comapnies that want opinions about their products. You sign up for certain websites that email you available surveys and when you complete them, you get points or some other type of reward, like a raffle entry. There are a few cons, thouth- you sometimes get screened out of surveys, there are days where you don't get any offers, some surveys are long and boring. Plus, many of these sites don't let you claim your money until you have a certain amount.  But its a good way to save up a bit of cash. Go to and sign up with a few sites. My favorites are toluna, Ipsos- Isay, and opinion outpost. You won't become a millionaire overnight, but its better than nothing! Hope this helps.

    That is pure scam..You don't have to pay to get online job opportunities. There are several trusted places where you can find job listings.
    Some of these places charge a percentage of the money, the buyer pays. But they will make sure you get paid for what you do.

    And again there are forums where people post job requirements.

    I am a freelancer making a decent income from online jobs.

    One advice I would give is "don't trust everyone". There are people who won't pay you after finishing the project. Make sure there is enough positive feedback for that person or request 30-50% of the pay beforehand.
    You also need to be very polite and initially quote low price to build up your reputation.Once you gain enough positive feedback, you can increase your pay.
