    Do you have any experience of any legitimate work from home opportunities?

    There are so many scams out there.  Have you discovered any legitimate opportunities which you would be willing to share here, or are you willing to talk about the ones which have disappointed?

    I have searched and researched almost every thing you can think of on the Internet , and simply , my answer is NO. Unless your a writer and work for an Editor that is not too picky, this is the only way to make money from the Internet. When I say money , I mean anything at or over 50.00USD. I have made quite a bit of money off writing sites. It is still very difficult to find anything online that is not a scam, to make any substantial amount of money. I am interested in your answers as well. Good question, look forward to all the answers. Thank You

      That is interesting tomy101, it would be so good to be able to build up some sort of data base of genuine opportunities so that people did not get burned financially etc., Guess e-Bay is a good place to start apart from the soaring postage.costs.

      I agree with you. Ebay is legitimate,and its great to make money selling things. I forgot that I have two websites, that are celebrity based and I have only had them up for 7 months and they are saleable for a few thousand, now to find a buyer ....

      That is interesting - I never thought of starting a website with a view to selling it at a later date!  Sometimes we don't realize the value of something we have created.  Thanks again for your input.

    I am the work from Home Muse my existence is working from home. I blog, write and I am a spiritual advisor all from Home, SCAM free, in my FB page "the work from Home Muse" I share links of legit jobs so you can make money from home, but the truth is that dedication is behind working from home.
    SAHM employment doesn't fall from a tree or bang at your door you have to put yourself out there.
    My Book
    "The Work from Home Muse" is a self help guide to not only helping you get your feet wet and on your way to working from home but also a great advisor on where to get the jobs and free office supplies,how to support your family by saving through the many ways I have and am still doing it.
    There is a legitimate way from working from home and NO it should not cost a cent.

      That is exactly the sort of comment I was looking for daisy1305 and yes, NO money should be paid by anyone looking for work online.  No-one ever said it would be easy, you really have to be dedicated to work from home,  Thank you,

      I find that your product is a Ebook and cost 6.50 to purchase, and therefor income from sales must be good. The coupon collecting and online questions you can take on the internet cannot possibly pay a persons 30k a year salary.

    No. But one thing I know -- writing articles for web content sites is NOT a reliable work-from-home opportunity, as long as writing is not your hobby.

      I agree C.V Rajan - pretty incredible when you think how much time we all spend on the internet !  There have to be some genuine opportunities out there, such as  the selling learned skills etc.,  Plumbing or Electrical skills or exchanging them!

    There are many legitimate ways to make money online.You can earn through internet by writing blogs,articles,ad-sense,
    affiliate marketing and other such ways.I work from my home and will share my experience.I have been into online
    business for the past few years,I do reselling business with ,I chose this business because there was no way to get scammed if we found a legit reselling company.It is very easy  to make a good turnover because
    the cost for each service is fixed by reseller and also it has a fixed commissioned pay for each sale.The customer service and payment is handled by the reselling company and hence I just have to promote the services.Hope my experience will be useful for you.

      Thank you venedict.  As I understand it, this is a reselling site which operates from the States, not sure how that would work here in the UK.
