Considering a work-at-home opportunity? Make sure you proceed with caution.
So you're looking for a way to work at home without investing a large sum of money? You might be attracted to one of the many advertisements offering low-cost work-at-home or money-making opportunities: stuffing envelopes, assembling products, reading books or watching television for pay.
Advertisements tout these opportunities as flexible and easy to start. They claim you can work full time or part time; costs to get into the business are generally quite low; and the work requires minimal training or experience. What's more, advertisements promise alluring financial rewards in minimal time.
