Although, there are so many legit home based businesses out there, there are still a few who would take advantage of your need to earn extra income for your family. They would do anything to convince you that they have what it takes, but the one thing that they do not have are the right credentials. I cannot tell you how many times I almost fell for these scams, but really, aside from the facts, there's a gut feeling that tells you that something is not right.
