Why You Should Stop Searching For An Online "Stay-At-Home" Job

In your days, you've probably seen quite a few "Take Surveys for Cash" or "Click for Cash" or "Fill in Forms for Cash" and the likes. I've seen my share of these and tried way too many. Now my inbox is filled with spam telling me that I can "Make $10,000 in 1 week".
It's never bad to try things on the internet because you never know what you'll be able to find that's of use. However, this general rule has the exception of "high-paying" online jobs that "let you work your hours" from the "comfort of your own home".
In this recession some begin to get desperate and instead of looking for honest ways to earn money, they look for easy ways to do it. They surf the web looking for online jobs and try out every last one that they find, with the glimmer of hope never ceasing to shine. They get optimistic every time they see the cheesy fake testimonials, six-figure promises and half-professional website designs.
But these don't work. You've heard the success stories and it is true, perhaps a handful of people have actually done well on the web (mind you most of these stories are fabricated), but just because the guy down the street did it, doesn't mean you can do it. It's not like cooking or knitting or fixing a car. There's no good recipe. On the other hand, there sure are a lot of recipes that'll result in burned chicken.

To begin with, it takes a ton of time to do each form, filling out your contact information and then trying to get off the ground just to find that nothing's happening. This is precious time that you can be using to try to find a job with a steady, honest income.
Also, there are sites that work, but these sites won't be close to enough to support a family or even a single person. Most might give you a few cents every third day for hours and hours of work but that won't even be enough for an ant.
Moreover, the scams that happen every day should immediately turn you off. If you stay in the business long enough, your identity will be stolen. I guarantee it. You can get into a lot of trouble with the law yourself as well because many of these pages are illegal or get you into legal trouble.

A rule is, if it's too good to be true, it isn't. Another rule is that if there's tons of emphasized and capitalized letters, neon bright colours, highlighted words and video testimonials, don't trust it. And finally,
you can't make money online with anything. It could be reading emails, sending emails, taking surveys, or even writing reviews. You just can't do it.
