Be very careful signing up if you are American but traveling while you register. I only spend about a week a year in the states, they Charles Schwab let me register and add $1000 USD to the account. They sent me a card and everything but when I went to make a withdraw(friend visiting brought the debit card) they wouldn’t allow it, I called the bank and they said the account was locked because I registered from a foreign IP. They would not allow me to send any info to get it unlocked and said I could only do so in a person at a local branch with 2 forms of ID and that they would keep my money until then. There was no way around it and if they were going to lock the account they should of done it before they let me make a deposit. Six months later I was finally able to get the funds back.

Social networks are a hot spot for work-at-home danger. One company called Easy Tweet Profits claims you can make up to $873/day online. They even claim one person earned $400,000/year using their method of tweeting your way to success. The catch? By signing up for their program you agree to be charged just under $50/month! There are a whole host of other companies with similar names (usually involving “make money” or “make profits”) that suggest social networking can be a cash cow. But their game is all the same. Whether you’re talking about something you see on Craigslist, eBay, Facebook, Twitter or whatever’s the next hot thing, you’ve got to be wary.

They always have charged a fee. They are not a company hiring people to work at home, their site is a job board that posts hundreds of work at home/flexible jobs every day that you can browse, and it’s not free to access. They work with a ton of legit employers to find candidates, and the reason they charge a subscription fee is because they do not use advertisements on their site for making money like many other websites.

Gertrud, I’m sorry you haven’t had luck finding work with these companies, but I can assure you they are not scam companies. Many do have people fill out questionnaires, to make sure that candidates match the requirements and needs of the company, basically an on-line interview. Don’t give up, I’m sure you will find the right match with persistence.
Notify Your Bank Of Your Travels: To be certain that your card will work abroad, before departing you should tell your bank which countries you will be visiting. Otherwise, your bank may block purchases and withdrawals they regard as suspicious. You may be able to set a travel notification in your bank’s online banking system. If not, give them a call or stop by a branch.
