Real Online Job Opportunity – NO Scams

As the summer vacations from colleges and schools in overall is getting closer, students will much probably look out for a job, if they are not self-employed. Whether a student or unemployed, everybody needs a job. A very good opportunity this, for the employers requiring staff. It seems very simple in the first place right?

Both of them got what they were looking for. Happy end. Maybe not?

And one of the most preferred are work at home jobs that are not scams – surely scams are something you want to avoid.

Real online job opportunity or a mere scam?
Beware of online job opportunity scams

Unfortunately summer vacations are a preferred target of multiply unwanted intruders as well, camouflaged under the logo of a real company and often times no company name, millions of people fall prey of scams every year with mind-blowing stats on financial loss,es to the victims.

Today I decided to bring some very useful information together on a real online job opportunity right in front of you. I would love to help those who are looking for help on how to recognize job-offering scams and ways to avoid them; and by the end of this article – the cherry on top of the cake- a free-to-join online job opportunity. Stay with me!

Offer Money To Get A Job – Wait, What?

Most of online job opportunities’ frauds start by offering you a very high-income job with very little to do “just this or just that”, very few hours work from home.

It sounds too good to be true, right?

AND most of the times that’s how it is.

From offers to sell special type of services to the requirement of personal information to work on your behalf so they can pay you; some very infamous methods they work with are also asking people to pay for the SIGN-UP to an “advanced program”. 95% of the cases the money never comes back and it is very recommended to never pay in other ways but credit card.

The bank remains a reliable institution on your side if facing fraud and money laundry pretentious. When you stop and think about it: Can you imagine looking for an online JOB and getting asked to PAY?

Assuredly not something one is looking for.

Interview in-person and Hand-shaking remain the #1 most trusted and transparent hiring methods. Highly recommended comparing to all other forms of employment.

Who Are Job-Scams Targeting?

Looking for Work from home jobs that are not scams?
Looking for online job opportunities?

No gender is targeted in particular with female victims leading with 49.2%. The males follow with 48.4%, with the left 2.4% reported as X gender. There is not a big difference and none is safe.

Most common ways they target are Emails with 65.2%, Phone-call scams with over 15% with In-person, Social networking, Text message, Mobile applications and other part-taking the list with 1-3% respectfully.
As I belong to the most endangered category when it comes to scam attacks and financial losses – the millennial – I am very sad to see this period of years in life suffer massive financial losses in an attempt to find a job.

In various reports published recently all across the globe regarding scams and fraud with the focus on job-offering type, millennial are reported the most endangered generation. By FAR.

That is SAD. A case that definitely requires close attention.

The list follows with 25-34 years old victims of fraud, with 35-44 not behind them. With the generation of under 18 and Over 65 less targets, embracing the fact that they are the last in the list of people that are actually LOOKING for a job.

Financial Losses Statistics

With a report made known to public from the Department of Commerce in United States of America, the numbers are nothing less but terrifying. It did not go unnoticed by the media of any kind, that suggest the same as I did today – to pay close attention.

Even though scams are rampant today across the globe, USA leads the way with OVER 2.6 million fraud reports and Job-scams lead the way. To be more specific, the counted losses of the reports register over $320 millions. THAT.IS. A.LOT!

As for reports in 2018 up to this day, in Australia there are almost 600 reports on scams with 11.8% of them in financial losses in online job opportunities with the cost of $361k in losses. The amount is calculated solely for the first 2 months up to this day.


Earn while sitting on your couch?
Who wouldn’t?

With such scary sums on financial losses and fraud circling the internet, many people are having trust-issues nowadays. That is very reasonable. Like with most of my posts, today especially I decided to redirect you to a real job opportunity, start your business and make money online.

  • Hey Hekuran!

    I believe it’s even worse that the job seekers are ripped off. Paying for the sign up should immediately raise red flags to those who are either looking for a job or starting their online business (I’m from the latter camp).

    It’s great that you’ve mentioned Wealthy Affiliate (WA). Whoever reads this post or my comment, I strongly recommend that you check it out. I’ve learned so much within my first month being a WA member.

    Great job on the article you wrote! Keep up the great job! 🙂 We should definitely warn people about any scam that shows up.

  • I highly agree that there are SO many scams out there that take your money and run. They promise you a way of getting rich in a fast amount of time, but in return you’re left with a low-value product (or in most cases 0 value) that’s been slapped together in a day but sold to thousands of people for a $7 fee, with the owner being the ultimate winner, who’s literally made thousands with a days work. Great article and definitely an eye-opener.

    • Hey Brandon!

      Thank you for dropping by and for sharing your opinion with me and all the visitors at mamaineedanonlinejob. With this post as with all my others I want to open eyes to the people and not fall prey of enormous numbers of surrounding scams. As you said, everyone is a loser with a scam scheme except of the one, and that without integrity.
      Stay safe!


  • Great review and you statistics that you have included are staggering. Crime has a blind eye to who they rip off. The stats prove that.

    You have to be very careful not to fall for the easy get rich schemes and the shining object schemes as that is what they are, schemes to get your money.

    Wealthy Affiliate is the only platform I have found that trains you for success instead of offering that shiny object. This is a Legit platform that I recommend to all my family and friends. It is not get rich scheme, but if you are willing to work hard and preserve, you will be successful.

That is why it was a good decision for me to write on these ugly schemes and open the eyes of those who value their own safety.

      I am happy to see you are already a member of Wealthy Affiliate, and this in itself is a big step towards making money and your stable income monthly, not merely waiting for the next salary to fill empty pockets. I am sure you will not regret.

  • Hi there and thank you for flagging up this important point. It’s not fair to target students in particular but anyone can be a victim of scammers. The problem is that you don’t often know that it’s a scam until it’s too late so thank you for posting such shocking statistics for us to read.
    I can recommend Wealthy Affiliate however as I use them myself and have set up 2 different niche sites that I love working on and that are also bringing in the money. You need to have patience though but the rewards are there if you stick with it and work hard – no different to having a job or any other business in that though,.
    All the best. Gail

      As first thank you for commenting your opinion on the matter.
      It is true indeed, that internet is full of scams and as years go by, the scams multiply as do the schemes and ways they use in their fraudulent activities.

    • Hey Henderson! Thank you for dropping by and leaving a comment. And yes, I agree with your saying, good things don’t come easy, and certainly not without some effort of some kind.
