– If an application has poorly written english
– Company website broken, incomplete, or no contact listing
– Asks for your social security number ( this is only required after you have been hired )
– Has an application fee ( you should not have to pay to apply for a job )
– Over promises, pay rate far above normal for such a job, ie too good to be true
– Require you to signup for a service or purchase items
– Wants you to install an application on your computer or phone. Some tech companies will have you install a system tester tool to make sure your computer is up to the requirements. Do your research before installing any software on your computer or mobile device.

I live in a remote town, is there work for me?

I have made hundreds of thousands over the years working from home and not commuting to work for a 9 to 5 life. I have shed the rush hour traffic daily drive for a short walk to my home office desk. In fact, we have moved to a very remote area and still work from home full time. Anyone can do it if they really want to put their mind to it.
