Many people who are just beginning to research work from home start off by looking into data entry. That’s the first thing I looked for, too. We want to do data entry because it’s non-phone and sounds so easy! Unfortunately, scammers know this and that’s why you’ll find so many fraudulent data entry job postings. This leads work at home newbies to believe that genuine data entry work from home doesn’t exist at all.
Most work from home data entry opportunities are either scams or they pay so little they’re barely worth bothering with. The Great American Opportunities data entry job is one exception.

I get a fair number of emails every single month from people looking for data entry work from home. Pretty much everyone wants to do this because it’s easy and also non-phone. If you really, really want to do this kind of work, you actually have some options even though many people will try to tell you that all data entry job openings are technically scams (and many are).
I’ve gotten so many inquiries lately from people looking for legit data entry and also asking me if certain websites were scam-free (that weren’t) that I wanted to just go ahead and address data entry scams right here and now. It’s very hard for work at home newbies to be able to differentiate from what’s legit and what isn’t. Many people begin researching home-based jobs thinking that data entry is really ideal only to …
Dion Data is a legitimate data management service bureau who hires home contractors for data entry. They’ve been around since 1999. How much does Dion Data pay?
