Home-Based Businesses

There are all kinds of home-based businesses, including ones that are set up to fail. Scammers make appealing — but not always truthful — pitches for medical billing businesses, envelope stuffing schemes, and craft and assembly projects, knowing that many people must find ways to work from home.

Work-at-Home Businesses

Many work-at-home opportunities are promoted by scam artists. If you pay in, it’s likely that you will spend more than you can earn.

Envelope-Stuffing Schemes

Offers that promise quick and easy income from stuffing envelopes at home virtually never pay off.

Invention Promotion Firms

When you’ve got a great idea, working with an invention promotion firm may have some pitfalls.

At-Home Medical Billing Businesses

Many medical billing business opportunities are worthless. Their promoters lie about their earnings potential and fail to provide key information.

Telemarketing Resale Scams

Selling brand-name merchandise from home can be a great way to work-at-home making some extra money. But sometimes, fraudsters call to lure you into a resale proposition. They’re the ones who make the money – and they make it from you.
