Work at Home Job

Date: 3/18/2013 9:17 AM (PST)

I saw an ad in the Pennysaver for a work at home job. I called the company and had a somewhat nice conversation with the representative. I agreed to do some work for them because I was told they would pay for the materials and send me a check. They did follow through with sending me a check, but I'm feeling a little bit apprehensive. The check looks real, but I'm not sure what I should do. Does anyone know if this is legitimate? Are there companies that offer real work at home opportunities?

If it looks to good to be true, it usually is. Ads for work-at-home opportunities may appeal to you. But before you send in any money in response to an offer, check it out. Fraudulent promoters use the classifieds and the Internet to tout all kinds of work-at-home offers, from medical billing and envelope stuffing to assembly and craft work. Too often, these ads make promises about earnings, merchandise, or marketability that sound great, but aren’t truthful. The result: consumers can get ripped off.

I would take the check into a bank, Not deposit it into an ATM and tell the banker what you stated here. If they deposit it, Let's say it clears within 3 days. DO NOT TOUCH THE MONEY! Wait another 14 days to make sure all is legit. just because it clears within 3-5 days doesn't mean your in the clear. As long as you still have the funds in your account, All they will do is withdrawal it.
