It's not always easy to figure out if a company is legitimate. Try these five essential tips from the Attorney General of the State of New York:
- Check with the Better Business Bureau in your area and the area in which the company is located.
- Ask questions, including: what specific tasks you'll have to perform; whether you will be paid by salary or commission; and who will pay you. Also, ask about the total cost to you, including supplies and equipment.
- Be wary of overstated claims of product effectiveness, exaggerated claims of potential earnings, and demands that you pay for something before instructions or products are provided.
- Be wary of personal testimonials that never actually identify the person so you can't investigate further.
- Contact your state Attorney General's consumer help line if you believe you've been victimized by a work-at-home scheme.
