So you want to work from home, and you don't have more than a few dollars (or less) to your name. You find some information online that appears to be legit and you get all excited — until you see that the company charges you $30 (or more) for a background check before you can even start working. Suddenly the wind has been taken completely out of your sails.
2. Capital One: If you just bank through them online (so your state does not have actual brick-and-mortar locations) through Capital One 360, there are no fees on any withdrawal outside the Capital One network, even if the network or issuer, like Mastercard, charges a fee. MasterCard will charge a 1% fee, but that is “covered” by Capital One, so you shouldn’t find it on your statement. However, as readers have commented below, if you bank through an actual Capital One physical location, you will be assessed fees as high as $2 per withdrawal and 3% of the transaction amount, meaning your costs could add up quickly.

If you travel abroad for a week or two per year, 3–5% in various fees and bad exchange rates for international card use is not really a big problem. But as a frequent traveler or digital nomad spending most of your time abroad, these fees add up quickly. In fact, you might be donating hundreds or even thousands of dollars yearly to your bank. I’m sure you could think of a better way to spend that money.
A note from Sarah Page: Scott originally wrote this post about the Schwab Bank High Yield Investor Checking Account debit card in March of 2014. I am re-posting it now as a reminder to all of you who haven’t jumped on this train yet–get one now! I have saved so much in ATM fees over the years, especially the last few weeks traveling around Europe when I’ve needed more cash for small transactions. I’ve also never had trouble withdrawing money from any ATM, no matter what country I’m visiting! Notes added on the original post by me are scattered throughout in bold font.  
If you are good at typing and you can listen well, you can make money through transcription. You need to have fast typing skills, and you can make some good money. Also, you need to be experienced in fields such as legal fields or medical because most of the transcription assignments need such skills and knowledge. To get paid you have to deliver quality and accurate work to the clients.
In addition to the answers posted here which are mostly the usual freelance markets that are popular, you can also find leads for work at home jobs through professional builder sites like LinkedIn and even through actual job search sites like Monster, etc. There are also job postings through social media sites like Facebook (particularly groups) and even ad sites like Craigslist. You just have to filter the posts in order to find out which ones are legitimate from those which are not.
I forgot to also share that I will be starting work with On Point as an Advocacy Coordinator too. It sounds like a great job that helps our fellow Americans keep informed about political issues. On Point is the voice of the average citizens that may have an opinion to share with their politicians but have no way of knowing how to contact them. On Point makes sure those voices get heard. In orientation the trainer said she will be hiring agents again around the middle of June. If you have good writing skills and are a good conversationalist then you may want to check it out. It also seems like if you put forth a little effort, you can make decent wages with them and they do pay weekly. I’m not big into politics but excited about this new venture.
Even if you follow the advice in tip #3, it’s possible your card could get locked anyway. On top of that, it’s easy to find yourself in a situation where an ATM accepts only one network and not the other. For example, when we travelled in Japan, the only ATMs we could find that would even accept international cards were at 7-Eleven, and they only worked with cards on the Visa/Plus network. I speak from experience – there’s nothing more stressful than needing more cash and not being able to withdraw it, so be prepared and bring multiple cards on multiple networks.

The savviest international travelers carry with them both a no foreign transaction fee credit card and a debit card that also lacks foreign surcharges. The former allows them to take advantage of the low currency conversion rates that VISA and Mastercard are known for as well as the superior fraud protections that credit cards provide. A no foreign transaction fee debit card enables foreign travelers to access cash from ATMs on an as-needed basis, thereby minimizing the risk of carrying lots of cash more
