Can you make money typing at home for cash? Well, yes and no. There are genuine jobs out there that need skilled typists to transcribe audio files, for example, or to retype old papers to bring them into the digital age.
There are also a bunch of suspicious sites out there that promise to show you how to make $1,000 a day typing from home if only you will buy my starter kit for $49.95! They are the Internet version of this old ad. The free book you “sent for” was actually a sales pitch to get you to buy the full course about how you, too, can be a typewriter repairman and make “big earnings!” But only if you’re a man, apparently. A skilled man. Non-skilled need not apply (though I bet they did, and I bet the scammers sold them the books anyway).
We’ve seen this all before. The top five Google search results for “home typing jobs” as of today are:
- jobvertise.com (which just sends you to workathomecareers.com)
- bestrealincome.com (which poses as a blog article that leads you to a data entry sales page)
They all smell the same, and it’s a familiar odor around here. We smelled it with “data entry jobs” and “rebate processor jobs.” It smells like sewage. Or dog farts. Pick your poison. It smells an awful lot like scam, to me. Why? The first giveaway is the site layout:
- Flashy ads? Check.
- Promises of “unlimited” or “guaranteed” income? Check.
- Shiny, happy people
holding hands? Pictures of cash? check, check.
We’re going to try one or more of them out (or at least take a really close look) and share the results with you, so don’t buy into any of them until you see our review!
Hey you! “Home typing” sites! I’ve Tried That is about to put a whole lot of hurt on you! Unless, of course, you’re on the up and up. Then you have nothing to fear.
