Data entry may be the first type of job you started searching for when you began researching work from home. But do these jobs actually exist or are they all just scams? That’s what this post covers.

Last Updated: Tuesday, October 28, 2014I’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.
