Due Diligence

One great resource for determining if a work-at-home job is legitimate is to Google the company’s name.  Check if they have social media links, “contact” and or “about us” information on their website.  If you feel the company is lacking in information then go with your gut feeling and stay clear.

As suggested by the FTC, if a company is legitimate and they are offering a work-at-home job, then they should welcome any or all of the following questions: (Find FTC recommendations here)

  • What tasks will I have to perform?

  • Will I be paid a salary, or will I be paid on commission?

  • Who will pay me?

  • When will I get my first paycheck?

Reporting A Work-At-Home Scam

If you have purchased a work-at-home program and now feel the company is not legitimate, the FTC recommends you first contact the company for a refund and relay to them you will also notify law enforcement officials on their practices.

If they do not respond with a resolution you can file a complaint with:

  • The FTC at or 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357).

  • The Attorney General’s office in your state or the state where the company is located. Find yours at The office can tell you if you’re protected by a state law that regulates work-at-home programs.
