    I think this is a reply to my response to the legitimatehomejobs.com Web site.
    If it is legit, I need to respond fairly quickly, but I'm SO parnoid about scams!
    Does this look like a scam, or does anyone know about this place specifically?

    Thanks in advance!

    The big red flag is "No contract to sign". Basically what that means is no company is actually going to be paying you. What I suspect this is, is they will send you an ebook of some sort with rudimentary information about internet marketing. You will be instructed to resell the book for however much you want and that is how you are going to make money off this.

    I'm not aware of any legitimate jobs that ask you to pay a fee to work for them.

    I'd advise stay away.

    This kind of data-entry job is an update of envelope-stuffing scams. Any job the requires a registration fee or training fee is probably a scam. You can read more about envelope-stuffing scams at this link:


    Good luck,

    Thanks everyone,
    I deleted that email right after reading cnielson's response.

    In my original post I speculated that this email was related to legitimatehomejobs.com; I was wrong. The email was related to a craiglist listing I responded to. I still don't know anything about legitimatehomejobs.com, so maybe it's okay...

    Thanks again!
