    Does anyone know of any real work from home jobs. There are so many scams on the internet but does anyone know of anything that really works?

    But
    But does it really pay? I am very wary of these work from home opportunities.

    Mine is a real job I'm afraid, I just woke up with a brainwave this morning so have been using a remote connection to try some things out. I'm paid a salary, so I'm working for free at the min and I've done more than I did most of last week when in!

    If there was a decent work from home opportunity then either:

    a) We'd all be doing it
    or
    b) Whoever discovered it wouldn't tell anyone else, as it'd eat into their own profits

    Be suspicious of anyone offering you such work, whats in it for them?

    The website called moneysavingexpert.com has a forum about increasing your income. Its in the forum on work & benefits "upping your income" I always look there first for anything to do with money. Its worth reading that forum as it has lots of real life experiences on it about homworking as well as ways in which to get more money in such as renting out your drive for daily parking etc. Hth.

    I know a girl that works from home stuffing supermarket freezer bags, it's hard work ( I did an hour with her once) and its only a couple of pennies per bag but she managed to get quite quick and seems to think it pays well enough or she wouldn't be doing it. Don't know the company details though, sorry not really much help.

    You can be a day trader from home but it can turn you into a fruit loop ( execution only )

    Prostitution from home is not illegal but you may prefer to choose whom you dress up in nylons and smoke cigarillos with

    Tuition is a growth business particularly when in relation to school grades
