I’m a young mom and want to work from home…?
Hi, I’m 3 months pregnant and I am looking for a job that i can do from home so i can be with my baby when he/she is born. See I work at Walmart right now, and they don’t pay that much and I’ve had problems with my boss from day one (I’ve been working there almost 4 months now). She doesn’t give me the right hours in which i put on my availability and I have given her a doctor’s note to cut back my hours due to my pregnancy. I was just wondering if there were any really good jobs I could look into so I could work from home. And I’ve found 2 from this website…but I’m worried they might be a scam. Which is another one of my questions…has anyone heard of UCS or MMTS? I’m not 100% sure what UCS is, it sounds good. and MMTS is one of those survey things, that you take them and make money. Not a lot of course. I’m also a full time student so I would really like to work from home for that reason also. If there is any information please let me know! Thank you, I greatly appreciate it.
I haven’t heard of the 2 you indicate, but I fear those are frauds.

What is a data entry job scam? What can you LOSE?
Answers: Data entry job, data entry job scam? What do these mean? Let’s explain:
a) a data entry job is a temporary, part-time, individual and non-supervised job, which is purportedly offered by websites directly, or on behalf of the websites’ “clients” [note that we are NOT referring to full-time, office based, fixed schedule data entry jobs where the employee goes to work every working day, thus leaving the home and travelling to work]
b) a data entry job scam is basically a job scam; in other words, a data entry job scam is a form of FRAUD where certain persons (scammers), acting from behind one, two or several websites, attempt to fool good-faith people (people that are looking for work from home opportunities), by falsely promising them data entry jobs, jobs through which they (the victims) can earn money working from home and without any need for travelling to an office location. What’s the CATCH? Here it is: generally, in order to get these “amazing” data entry opportunities, the jobseekers (the future victims) need to register online on the scammers’ websites and pay one or more registration fee(s) ranging from US$ 9 up to US$ 450, and only after they register they’ll get the data entry “projects” started; the only problem is that, once they pay the money, the victims will never get the money back even if the website has BIG banners saying “30 days money return guaranteed!”; the even bigger problem is that since they paid online (on the website) for the registration, the scammers also got the credit card details – which they can use in other illegal activities.
OR, scammers might very well ask you to pay for so called “training materials” – needless to say that once you pay them you’ll get nothing but a useless sheet of paper.
Note: If you are asked to pay any money upfront = step back, it’s a scam. Don’t pay anything to anyone. Don’t be a victim!
A data entry job scam can also take the form of various job ads displayed on one, two or more online job boards, job ads that invite (“welcome” in the scammers’ own words) job applications; generally, these job ads contain extremely limited information, an email address, a cell phone number, and in most cases they also contain a notice regarding the salary which can be “excellent”, “sky-rocketing”, “amazing”, and can range from US$ 100 a week up to US$ 2,000 a week. Beware! Don’t swallow the bait! Well, what’s the CATCH? Here it is: once you reply with your job application or a phone call, the scammers will try to get your personal data (which is basically no less than identity theft – and this can cause you a lot of problems), or your financial information (saying they need it for job processing and so forth), or money (via check, wire or cash); the scammers can also invote you to register on one of their “amazing” websites, which obviously is full of “opportunities”.
Note: always be on alert if you see job ads that provide very little information and do not reply to all the job ads you see or get; we know some of you might we too desperate getting a job, but we strongly advise you to be cautious and alert. Generally speaking, try NOT to provide your name, full address, SSN, credit card info, or other financial info via telephone conversations or via internet.
What can you LOSE? Many things: first (and most important), as soon as you reply to a bogus job ads (data entry related or not), ads posted on dubious job boards, you will lose your identity (that is, the scammers will get your personal data and use it for fraudulent purposes – forged passports, forged driving licences, credit card applications, and so on); second, as soon as you register on data entry websites, you lose the money you paid for registration; third, as soon as the scammers have your credit card details, not only you might lose a lot of money, but you can also get into more complex financial problems.
