Tips To Identify Legitimate Jobs Versus Scams

Written by Sarah Lamb

At Work From Home Mothers we not only want to encourage you and help you find a job that you can do at home, but we also want to protect you from the endless scams that exist preying on those who want to work from home.

With more and more companies having opportunities for employees to work remotely, it’s a little tricky sometimes to be sure if a job advertisement you found is 100% legit or not. Don’t worry, we’ve got some easy ways to tell if you should email or call to find out more or keep scrolling. To make it even easier (because who has time to waste?) we’ve broken this up into three sections.


Legitimate Jobs

A legitimate work from home job is always going to be upfront on what your job will be, the hours you will work, what you will be paid and most importantly, who to contact and where. A prospective employer isn't going to contact you out of the blue with an amazing work from home offer that’s only available if you reply right away. A legitimate company wants the best person for the job and is going to have a clear picture of who that is and knows that it takes time to find and interview them. They are going to want to meet in person or over a video call like Zoom to get a feel for you. You will also be asked for a resume and references to make sure you are a good fit for their company. Be prepared for questions such as, why would you be a good fit for our company? Or, why do you want this job?

Look for a company that:

• Doesn’t hide behind vague job descriptions. You want someone who is upfront with the job description, hours, salary and answers all questions you have.

• Is easily researchable on Google so you can make sure they do what they say they do , have a good reputation, treat their employees well and that the person you spoke with is an actual employee there.

• Might have reviews from other employees or former employees on a site like Glassdoor. While some smaller or new companies might not have those, it’s still a helpful place to look for additional information.



Might be legit...but do a little research

Sometimes you stumble upon an advertisement on social media. Those are scams, right? Not necessarily. While many are possible scams and just as many are for multi level marketing jobs such as selling kitchen or health products, often you can find that it’s an honest offer by doing just a little legwork to research the company and person offering the job. With any company you’ll want to research and make sure they are an actual business. Ever gotten a phishing email that looked so good you weren't sure if it was really from that company or not? It’s scary how clever some of those emails are. Scam artists are very good at stealing a company’s logo and trying to trick you into disclosing your personal information for them to use or sell.  It’s very important to try and meet your prospective employer in person if at all possible or through a video call. This gives you a feel for the company and the employees. Watch out if they aren’t interested in a face to face or video interview or aren’t asking you questions about the number of hours you want to work, the type of position you are applying for and any previous experience in that sort of position. If those things are happening or they want to hire you on the spot without any questions asked, chances are this isn’t an actual job. 

Remember:

• Google the company and make sure it exists and the person contacting you exists.

• Learn if the company is a multi level marketing job. If that’s what you want to try, read all of the fine print. Check out the company’s reputation.

• Try and do a face to face or video interview. This gives you a feel for the person and the company.

• Did they try to hire you on the spot? No interview? No questions? Walk away.



Avoid Red Flags

Run! Those red flags waving aren’t just for decoration!

There are some very common things that scammers like to do to lure you into “working” for them. Sometimes there’s an application or placement fee. Maybe they request you pay for training or a special software you need to work from home. On the opposite side, be wary if you are given money before you’ve agreed to work for the company and have actually completed work. Other things to be concerned about are if an interview is held only by chat or email. If you can only get hold of someone to speak with when they call you, not when you call them that’s another warning sign. If a job sounds too easy and promises big bucks, has no job qualifications or the email address doesn’t look quite right, it’s probably not a legitimate job. Keep an eye out for simple mistakes as well in grammar or incomplete sentences. It could be a computer generated job and not a legitimate one. If there are multiple mistakes in the job listing, there could be multiple problems with accepting the job.

If you were contacted out of the blue by someone who said they saw your resume (which you never posted) beware! “Recruiters” often gather pieces of your personal data from online and use that to trick you into giving them more personal information in hopes of getting that once in a lifetime job that pays well and has very little work. Sometimes they even pretend to be from a well known company looking for someone like you, using flattery to make you lower your guard. Often they employ a sense of urgency that is used to try and force you into quick decisions, ones that you might not usually make when you stopped to examine all of the facts of the job offered.

Look elsewhere if: 

• Someone is asking you to pay for your training, application fees or other expenses before you can start, especially if you are asked to pay by money transfer or gift cards. 

•  You are offered or given money before you have performed work for the company.

• Promises of high pay for very little work. For example, $1500 a week starting pay just for a few hours of easy work.

• An interview that was only by chat or email

• An email address that you can’t search to make sure it’s genuine. For example, Steph442@target.url.com instead of StephanieMyer@target.com. 

• A website you are directed to that might not be the company’s actual website. For example, Target.com not Tar-get.com. Sometimes a fake company uses an actual business name with just one minor change that’s easy to miss. 

• They want all of your personal information through email. Name, date of birth, social security number and more. A real employer will only ask for that information when you are filling out your new employee information on your W4 form for taxes. They won’t ask for it over the phone or in an email or chat. 

• You receive or are requested to make phone calls at unusual hours. While you might be working in a different time zone than your employer, any phone calls before 7am or after 9pm might indicate that you are not able to have a compatible work schedule. Even with an employer that has a 24/7 company, they should contact you during usual business hours. 

• Poor grammar, obvious typos or incomplete sentences - anything that could mean this was a computer generated job, not a real one.

• If you are contacted by someone who says they saw your resume online (which you never posted) or says they work for a larger company looking for someone just like you.

• If you are feeling forced to make a quick decision on accepting the job without having the time you need to research the company. 

    Above all else, trust your instincts. If something doesn’t feel right, ask questions. If it still doesn’t feel right walk away. There will ALWAYS be another job out there for you, but it can be difficult to get out of a mess if someone steals your identity or bank balance because you fell victim to a scam.

10 Toddler activity items that are worth buying

Scroll right to see more...

Indoor Trampoline

This has been my personal favorite buy. If you have an energetic kid, this is perfect to help him/her burn off some energy indoors. My kid absolutely loves jumping on it. It's also been a hit amongst her little friends who come visit as well 😊 .

Balloons

If you don't have any latex allergy in your family, these balloons never fail to entertain. We do so much with them. My daughter loves to have a bunch of them in her trampoline when she jumps. We draw and practice writing our letters on them. We play catch and "don't let the balloon hit the floor" game. They have a lot of potential.

Chalk Markers

These markers work great on mirrors and windows and they wash off easily. They were particularly helpful when I washed my daughter's hair when she was littler as she hated having water on her hair. Since I gave her a bath over the sink, she was able to turn towards the mirror and scribble on!

Stickers

I don't know what's the deal with stickers, but my kid looooooves them. These bulk stickers will last you a long time. Please make sure your kid is old enough to not try to eat it!

Playdoh

Playdoh never gets old! This particular box has different tools to play with. My daughter loves making little shapes and stacking them like little pancakes.

Slide

This little slide from heaven has been so amazing! We got ours used and it's still standing strong. It can be used indoors or outdoors. We've kept ours indoors for the most part. It has kept our little girl occupied for long periods of time. She also likes to watch bouncing balls roll down from it.

Puzzles

Puzzles are a fun acitvity to do with your kid. I have seen my daughter learn to problem solve with these. She struggled at first to know where each peice goes, but I've enjoyed watching her problem solve at such a young age.

Preschool Prep

There is a free version of these on youtube, but the dvds are great for long road trips if you have a dvd player in the car. I am honestly amazed by how quickly my daughter has learned through these videos. I also love that she loves them 😀.

Blocks

I have to admit that I actually enjoy playing with blocks with my daughter 😊. We make "tall tall towers", as she likes to call them, and make little "houses" for her stuffed animals. We got this particular bag of blocks + another used set, so we have a lot to work with 😀 .
