Why are people are so dense or desperate, maybe both?

For the life of me I can't figure out why people think these data entry jobs that's going to pay you $300 to $500 a week are legit.

Let's look at reality, how much money that would be per hour. For $300 a week, you would have to work 40 hours and make $7.50 an hour. For $500 a week you would have to work 40 hours and make $12.50 an hour. So we are talking $24 K a year for a $500 a week job, not gonna happen for someone working at home.

Now that's providing that these people who want to work at home can or want to work 40 hours a week. If not at 20 hours a week $300 a week would equal to $15 an hour and$500 a week would be $25 an hour...don't we all wish!

Sorry to ruin the fun, but this kind of job is not going to happen. There are people with college degrees not making this type of money, so in all honesty why would you think a stay at home mom could?

The people who post these "jobs" are scammers and are playing on your desperation to want to work at home so bad that you will do anything, include paying for a job. The number one rule about a work at home job is : you will NEVER EVER pay for a job, they will pay you. I know you have seen those jobs on various sites; craiglist, hotjobs, monster but they are scammers.

Here's a sample ad: Data Entry Work at Home. Make $300 to $500 a week, no experience necessary. Some of them will claim no fees, guarantee money, but they are all lies.
Once you read the basis of this ad and you respond to their email they will reply with in order to make sure we know you are serious about this we need to ask for $$$ ( this varies from $29.95 to $5.00 )for training supplies. Oh yes and the number one catch: one time non refundable fee.

The sad thing is that so many people fall prey to this because they think oh its only $5.00 or it's only $15.00, well yes it's only that much, but imagine 200 people fall for it. That scammer just walked away $1000.00 at $5.00 per person.

Your training supplies in case you are interested some in the form of an email telling you how to place ads just like the one above. Simple scam yet so many fall for it.

Don't be the next victim.
