I knew someone that transribed at home for a living. They gave her tapes (not sure dig or analog or how she played them) but she would listen on her headphones and type into the program, it was by page I have no idea how much but you could look up something like that on google I bet.

Sorry dude, no one is going to pay you to sit around in your underwear and look at internet porn all day.

It seems like Data Entry could be honest work but either I get a reply requesting some "Money for the information kit" or I don't get a reply at all. So it seems like most of those jobs are BS as well. Seems to be nothing but BS jobs on Craigslist/Hotjobs/Careerbuilder :(
I would prefer AT bring back the Subscriber service with 10,000 or unlimited PM's for $50/yr :thumbsup:

Unfortunately 92% of the "work from home" offers entail paying $14.95 to $49.95 for the information. The trick is finding that elusive 8% where you don't have to shell out $20.

Damn straight.

Viper GTS and I were two of the most vocal supporters of the subscriber service. It's a damn shame they killed it :(

Has anyone on here tried Amazon's Mechanical Turk? I'm not sure if you can make a living off it, but there seemed to be plenty of boring-as-hell opportunities on there.

I ran across this data entry job for $200, assuming it takes 20 hours it averages out to $10 per hour.

I wonder what the catch is?
Ross that sounds like a spamming thing. Ya know have a real person do it to get past the validation process where bots cant. imho Sorry again TallBill
Hmmn why didn't I think of that. You're probably right, thanks!
