From saving time on a dreadful commute, having greater control of your schedule, and saving money on an office wardrobe and all the other miscellaneous costs associated with an in-office job—working from home sounds like a dream!

The challenge, however, can lie in finding a real online job amidst the many remote work scams.

In fact, that is one of the very reasons FlexJobs was created … to create a safe, trusted resource for people to find legitimate work from home and flexible jobs, without having to worry about the junk and scams. But if you use any other sites, then you should be prepared to know how to protect yourself.

Savvy scammers know how much people desire to work from home. They impersonate potential bosses, real professional recruiters, and hiring managers in order to scam job seekers out of personal financial information—and in the worst case scenario, their life savings.

And when you consider that for every one legitimate work-from-home job, there are approximately 60-70 job scams, it can make you want to give up your job search even before you’ve gotten started.

Take heart, job seekers. There are ways to find a real online job and avoid the scams. Here’s how:

Trust your gut.

As with most situations in life, one of the single best ways to avoid a job scam is to listen to your instincts.

That can be hard when you’ve been out of work for a while and a plum position seems to fall smack dab into your lap. But think about the job and how you were approached about it in an objective light. If something just feels off, or you feel uncomfortable for any reason (e.g., the job recruiter is pushy or demanding, or you don’t have a clear understanding of the job responsibilities), don’t think twice about walking away from it.
