Money Back Guarantees Are Worthless!

Money back guarantees in all the home based programs are hogwash and and eyewash. You will NEVER get any money if you decide you want it back. Do not fall for it.

If you are signing up with any work at home program just because it has a Money Back Guarantee, think again. All those so called ‘Iron Clad’, ‘No Questions Asked’ guarantees are nothing that they are ever going to honor. Read the fine print. They have their backs covered. None of it will ever hold up even if you decide to file a formal and legal comlaint against them. And face it, no one is ever going to do that since it costs decidely more to pursue a matter than what you have paid them in the first place. That is what these spurious websites with bogus guarantees are counting on.
A few common example of the these so called guarantees are:


“$300 CASH GUARANTEE! (Good for 1 Full Year)…. I’ll bet $300 CASH on your
success. That’s how sure I am that you’ll make MONEY with my
program…………… I’ll pay off my bet and send you $300 just for trying.
Now that’s an IRON CLAD guarantee!”….


ROCK SOLID GUARANTEE THAT YOU’LL SUCCEED!…. Send for my proven money making
program today. Spend about 30 minutes reading the simple step-by-step
instructions. If you give my plan an honest try and haven’t made at least
$1,000.00 within the first 10 days, simply return the complete package and
your $24.95 purchase price will be refunded immediately….. I guarantee
everything I’ve told you is 100% true, and can make you a lot of money,
quickly and easily.


“MONEY BACK GUARANTEE…. The $100 AN HOUR system is so remarkably profitable
that I want you to examine it without taking any risk whatsoever. Here’s
how. Order the $100 AN HOUR system right now. When you receive it, fill in
the simple worksheets and mail them to the address I supply. If you don’t
receive a check for $100 for every hour you spend filling in the simple
worksheets, simply return the program within 60 days and I’ll rush you a
complete refund of your purchase price! How’s that for assurance? You either
make $100 AN HOUR using this spectacular new system, or you get a refund.
With my unconditional money back guarantee, there is no way for you to lose.”


YOU CAN’T LOSE!…. Believe it or not, some people will put this remarkable
opportunity on a shelf and do absolutely nothing with it, and for this reason,
it would be impossible for us to send expensive supplies to anyone and
everyone who asks. So we charge a small “good faith deposit” of $39.95, which
we will REFUND IN FULL just as soon as you stuff your first 500 envelopes
according to our simple instructions! What could be easier?”


“Get my Fast Cash System! Put it to work for you. If after 60 days you do not
have the same experience as I had with this system, simply return all
materials for a complete refund of your purchase price. Even if you don’t
like my system for any reason, my guarantee still stands!”

With all the above examples you are ever going to be able to extract one single cent from the company. They are vaugue and twisted in their wordings. They require you to submit proof that you have tried making money following their tricks which they send you when you subscribe. These things are either unethical and illegal, just like the scam they are running or they are just plain impossible to do. As for the unethical and illegal bit, please read all our articles on all the various kinds of scams being run like envelope stuffing, data entry, form filling, transcription etc. to know that what you will have to end up doing is not what you expect and not what they claim to be selling you.
As to sending you tasks impossible to perform, let me share with you two of my experiences.
I will describe them in short as I have covered them in detail in other sections.
I joined a data entry/typing program where I was told that I would be send a list with names and addresses and phone numbers and I would need to type them in a table format in Microsoft Word. When I finished I could email them the file and I would be paid.
What i recieved was a copy of a few pages from the Phone Directory! And they had been reduced in size and printed in such terrible quality that they were impossible to read! Thousands upon thousands of names that were unreadable. I tried everything. I scanned the pages, make them bigger and reprint them but nothing worked. That is when I realised that they had done a deliberate and a professional job of making these pages unreadable! This is the example of a job that is impossible to do. You will never be eligible for getting your money back!
The second program that I joined let you download PDF file of names and address and wanted you to type it out in Excel sheets. There were more than 5000 names and amount of spelling mistakes permitted in names, addresses, phone number was 5! If you made more than 5 mistakes your work got rejected! And they promise money back after the completion of the first 2 projects. Another one that leaves very little room to be elligible for a money back.
There is a very important information about such scam websites and businesses. Did you know that these websites and scams regularly keep shutting down and re starting under a different name and even from a different place? Investigations have revealed that several of form filling rackets and envelope stuffing rackets have been shut down by the post master general and the authorities repeatedly for running suspicious and fraudulent activities. But these companies do not remain in one place for long enough only to lure innocent people on the Internet into buying their programs. Once they have collected enough cash under one alias, they simply shut down completely along with their website, phone no. etc. Even if you do try to get your money back, you will find no trace of them as they will have started work under another name and maybe even place.
Needless to say in the example of the above two examples that I have given of fraudulent home based jobs programs and just as bogus money back guarantees, both those companies became non-existent shorlt after I first joined them.

Business From Home ? – It Might Not Be For You

Starting a business from home might not be the best idea for you. Make sure you have what it takes to be a home based entrepeneur.

Home based businesses are different from jobs, of course. Jobs you work for other employers while businesses you run pretty much on your own. There are several ways to have a home based business for yourself. If you want to work from home, you need to choose whether you want to work on a job or you want to have a business for yourself. Its pretty much true that while for jobs you will have to look and search till you find the right one, with a home based business you will need a start up capital which is not required in case of a job. If you are unsure of which one you are suited for, a home based job or a home based business, review the pointers listed below that are sought after in a home based entrepreneur.
• Do you have an idea related to either your skills or other resource that can set you up in a home based business? Meaning you may turn your skills as a cook into a catering business or a resource like free space in your home as a day care enterprise.
• Do you have a start up capital to invest in a business? All businesses require some capital to be invested as a start up cost. This cost varies with the kind of business you are starting and the kind of resources available to you.
• Are you a little bit of a risk taker? That is the definition of an entrepreneur. A risk taker that posses enough enterprise and skill to turn the risk into a profitable business. All businesses are risks to begin with. How much so depends on the nature of the business.
• Are you perseverant and ready to dedicate to be patient? The thing about businesses is that they sometime take time to bloom into money making setups. You need to be patient and have a financial cushion that will carry you through the period that you business is still getting its hold on the market.
• Are you practical with a good business sense? Everything from the very inception of the business your success depends on you having a good business sense. You need to be practical right from the moment you choose the home business for yourself to know what will work and what will not. You need to budget and plan so that you run a profitable enterprise. A sound business sense means that you will make sound business decisions. And those you will have plenty to make.
If you think you possess these skills then you should definitely think on the lines of starting a home based business for yourself. A lot us and me personally are in the favor of running a home based business as opposed to taking up a job. We feel it gives you a better opportunity to grow. And if it is something that you love doing then it provides for a greater degree of satisfaction.
We wish you all the best and hope that this website helps you in setting yourself as a work force to reckon with right from your home.

Home Based Jobs Are Of Two Kinds

There are two kinds of home based jobs. Know which one you are suited for before applying. It could make the difference between finding the right job and not.

Two Kinds Of Home Based Jobs – Which One Is For You?

Home based jobs are just that. Jobs that you can do from home. They are usually not very different from usual jobs except that they are ones you do from home. A lot of companies are looking to hire home workers as a more cost effective way of increasing their work force.

Many of them require temporary positions do they look to hire people temporarily on a part time basis. These are NOT the get rich quick schemes that you keep reading about on the internet. They are regular job postings posted by regular employers that require you to apply in a proper format. You do not have to pay to join them but you will need to apply with an applications, Résumé while stating your work experiences and skills.

These jobs are to be found on various career portals and some websites that are dedicated to posting home based jobs from verified employers. We have listed these websites in the More Resources section that is available from our side navigation bar. Please remember to read our guides to making a Résumé and how to apply to a job before you apply to any of these jobs.

Where you look for a job greatly depends on your profile and how qualified you are. There are two scenarios that we foresee for you.

Scenario #1 – You have worked earlier in a regular job and now want to work from home because of demands on your time by your family responsibilities or some other restriction. If you have the qualifications in a particular field of work be it sales, marketing, customer care etc and have experience in the same then the best bet for you is to post your resume on job sites like etc. This is where the regular employers are from big corporations to small ones. You will find better pay scales and more suited to your profile and work experience.

Another great way to start to work from home if you are already working in a regular job is to talk to your boss. Explain how you can manage the same work with as much productivity from home. Maybe you can also mentions how it will save the company certain overheads like office space, commuting expenses etc. You can be asked to out on a trial basis from home for a month and see how it goes.

Scenario #2 – Scenario number two is that you are pretty much a stay at home person and are now searching for ways to make some extra income from home. The best bet for you is to have a look at the home based jobs and portals that we have mentioned here and see what catches your fancy. It is important to keep your skills in mind while looking for a job. Do not waste time applying for jobs that do not match your profile. You will not get them.

The employers post detailed descriptions of what they are looking for from their prospective employees. Match these requirements to your profile as closely as possible. If your experience is basic or you are just starting out, look for jobs that are looking for home workers with minimal skills. Try starting out with temporary jobs and maybe even freelancing projects. Freelance projects exist in a variety of job fields. You can have a look at some of the freelancing websites listed here and see if there is anything worth your while there.

An Introduction To Working From Home

There is so much to cover when you want to build resources for a work from home portal. Over the years there are so many websites and so many programs that one sees. All speak about working from home with businesses, jobs and opportunities. Very few, maybe only a handful have ever some close to proving to be anything useful. Sure there are hundreds if not thousands of them out there. But they offer nothing helpful. First things first, we want to tell you to absolutely remove the notion from your mind that Internet jobs exist that make you hundreds of dollars a week for doing inane things like data entry, form filling, emailing etc. They are SCAMS. it does not matter what they they. You will find dozens of other that say the same thing. It is not going to happen. Please read our SCAMS section to get an update on this. You will be amazed to see what other wise intelligent people fall for.
Like I said there are perhaps a handful of websites that provide USEFUL information regarding working from home. I am not saying that they are just going to go ahead and get you hired. But they will show you some real home based job opportunities. I will stress here one more time that you should not expect jobs like filling and typing 4 line forms to make you 100s of dollars a day or a week. They will be a lot like regular jobs and while they will not ask you for money to apply, they WILL ask you for your RESUME and EXPERIENCE. They are more like regular jobs that one does anywhere else with the exception that you will be allowed to telecommute i.e. work from home home.
One of the best things that you can do if you want to work from home is to tap in to your own skills and strengths and start a home based business. You can do anything from tutoring, craft making, cooking, catering, own a franchise, day care, florist, writing etc. There is no end of opportunities. You need to look at the community around you and see what you could possibly start on a small scale that would do well. We will include a section on home business ideas and franchise opportunities her as well. Use the internet to find home based work, but do not think of working on the internet if you are looking for a job. Jobs like that that ask you to pay up to join promising you magnificent returns are all scams. Any offer that promises huge returns on a relatively small investment is just that. A fraud. Making and earning money takes work. There are NO exceptions.
