When people hear the phrase “work from home business,” what image do you think pops into your mind? Some might see themselves sipping coffee, waiting for a call to come through as they try to sell periodical subscriptions. Or maybe they think of attempting to store trucks of inventory in any spare space available, trying to unload it before time runs out.

Seeking employment that you can do from your house used to be a matter of thumbing through the Sunday classifieds. Now, exposure to work-at-home employment opportunities has grown, and a multitude of job offers are just a mouse click away; but so are the scams. Home based business and work-at-home opportunity scams score very high on the list of the worst types of Internet fraud.

These top five work-from-home job descriptions are nearly always signs of fraud.

1. Package Forwarding - You're helping somebody move stolen goods with this scam. The scam victims receive the packages, along with instructions on where to forward the package next. After forwarding the stolen goods, you’ll supposedly get a payment for your efforts. Sometimes payment arrives, and usually it doesn’t. In either event, eventually it’s the cops who show up at your door wanting to know why you are receiving stolen goods at your own address.

2. Email Forwarding - You’ll get an offer to make cash by forwarding emails on behalf of an organization. The “organization” informs you that to get started, you just need to submit a payment for materials or software you’ll need. You can fill in the blank here.

3. Work in Crafts - This graft is another one that’s been around so long it’s a wonder that it has any victims left. But it does, and people are getting cheated out of thousands of dollars to it.

4. Incoming Jobs - Especially in this economy, the “You’ve got a job!” scam is gaining traction. In this scam, unsuspecting scam victims get an email with the good news that a job offer is waiting them at a certain website that has more information. Following the link, they see instructions to enter their name, mailing address and other personal information including valid credit card data and social security number. Fill in the blank here.

5. Data Entry - Crooks post a job for data processors who can work from home. When a victim contacts them, the crooks put them through an phony job interview and make a job offer. The scam is, all employees must use specific software to work. Of course, the applicant doesn’t have it (no one does) because it’s only produced by the scammers, who then sells it for thousands of dollars to the victims – yes, really.
