One online job opportunity that regularly caught my eye was typing from home. It sounds like a great opportunity right? And there are loads of ads online for earning money online by typing from home.
Can you Make Money Typing from Home?
Yes I am sure you can. The question is IF you can find a legitimate company or not. I have not managed to find any company that offers a real work from home opportunity. I have come across lots of interesting things while searching to find typing from home jobs. I would really be interested in anyone has found an honest and legitimate company that offers this sort of work so I can share it with my readers. If you have found something please let me know in the comments section below so I can check it out.
I am not going to go into too many experiences I have had, I am just going to share a few recent examples to give you an idea of what I have found while searching for online typing jobs.
Here is an example of a company that came up on page 1 when I did a search.
This company advertises that you can $100 per hour typing, sounds great! They also claim that they offer full training and support. Sounds great right? There is a video on their home page explaining how it all works.
I am hopeful and play the video. Now I understand what they mean by CAPTCHA, this is what keeps websites safe, prevents spam from hitting their websites… your job is to help spammers hack websites!
Even for the sake of reviewing this “opportunity” I am not going to be doing something like that, I get myself out of there fast. Sorry but I can’t give you feedback on whether you can actually make $100 per hour with this. I will tell you one thing that is clear, this is seriously unethical and dishonest work. Please don’t be fooled into doing something like this. I sincerely doubt you will earn $100 per hour, but even if you did can you sleep at night?
I head back to Google to see what else is available. Once again on page 1 there is a data entry job and apparently you will be given scanned pages to type out. This sounds like it might be legit so I have a look. It looks simple enough.
I enter my details and now I have to download something to get my jobs and get started. I don’t like downloading anything to my laptop to be honest. It doesn’t even explain to me what “it” is. I do it anyway because maybe I can make money.
A pop up window comes up immediately telling me I to “verify” myself so they don’t get spammed. I look at the options and I think they look rather odd. Why not just send a verification email like normal people? I am now very suspicious, this looks like all the other scams and spamming things I have seen before so many times. I choose the first option to “unlock my content directly”. I don’t have or want WhatsApp, I don’t want to win a holiday and I don’t want to download any content to my phone. At the same time I am wondering what I am busy downloading to my laptop.
Oh yay, look how I unlock my “work”… I get to play a flappybird game on my cellphone. I will also be billed R7.00 per day for this.
Call me skeptical or whatever you like but I have only spent 5 minutes having another look online for “type from home jobs” and this is what I get on the first two I click on.
So can you make money online typing from home? Certainly not in my experience, I have spent a lot of time searching online and tried to find something that its honest and legitimate but can’t find anything.
Have you made money typing online? What website did you use and how would you rate it?
