  5. Pre-Pay/Work at Home Scams<br />Although there are genuine jobs working at home, many “offers” are not valid forms of employment and may have the simple goal of obtaining an initial monetary investment from the victim. <br />Using claims such as “be your own boss” and “make money quickly”, Work at Home scams will not guarantee employment and almost always require an “up-front” investment of money for products or instructions.<br />Read more on how to avoid Work-at-Home Scams here.<br />5<br />
  6. Tips to Protect Yourself<br />What you can do<br />
  7. Tips to Protect Yourself<br />Don&apos;t get involved with an employer that can&apos;t make its business model perfectly clear to you or one that&apos;s willing to hire you without even a phone interview. <br />Do your own research on any employer that makes you feel at all uneasy. <br />Never put your social security or national ID number, credit card number, bank account number or any type of sensitive personal identification data in your resume. <br />
  8. Tips to Protect Yourself<br />Never share any personal information with a prospective employer, even if they suggest that it is for a &quot;routine background check,” until you are confident that the employer and employment opportunity is legitimate. <br />Do not engage in any transaction in which you are requested to transfer or exchange currency or funds to a prospective employer. Remain alert for the Work at Home employers who require you to make an up-front investment.<br />Be cautious when dealing with individuals/companies from outside your own country. <br />
