They just mention this company on the news. It is still new and one will not get rich this way. But for anyone with a computer this might be a nice way to make a little extra income . Here is the link http://www.chacha.com

I do not gain anything by posting this here. I just thought it might be of interest to some.

Thanks, Iris! I just browsed through and found some jobs pertaining to proofreading (in my doctoral studies, this was always made available for a fee, however I wasn't sure how it was done). Later in the day, I will find more information out about this and report back. I would like to break it down to marketable skills that may pertain to others and perhaps not me.

You are the best,

Dan

Terrific! Once again, thank you for thinking of others. I did check out the site without providing any information. It seemed to be legitimate, but that is hard to tell as the scams have gotten so much better over the years. Still, there was no direct request asked for money or investment, which lends itself to being more credible.

Warmly,

Dan

It looks to me that this is the same type as about.com, where you host a subject.

I have a friend who does the Las Vegas about.com. I will venture a memory guess but he has worked himself up to about 900.00 a month. It is all based on hit count to the site. He is fortunate in that he has a very popular site and was able to get in on it at the start. It is also important to find a subject that will get you hits, since that is how your bottom line gets the cash.

There is an about site for everything so if you think you might be interested boogie over and take a look.

I have no connection to about.com so you're on your own.

A good site for extra income, that I use here and there, is http://www.guru.com/

I am not sure what they have outside of programming, but I have picked up a few side projects and I have some friends that use it for 100% of their income. Worth checking out I would imagine. They seem to have something for everyone, at least the categories are quite expansive.

Once again, thank you. Although for me, I need to find some way to work from home, so this is very relevant, there are many people who come here looking for work.

I have explored the sites, and it seems that there is quite a bit of work that one could start prior to moving, and continue once they are here, therefore having a more or less uninturrupted income.

I know that Becky R. did this, made excellent money, and brought it from AR to STX, then back to AR. I know there are scams, but there are legitimate experiences and jobs as well.

Thanks again for all,

Dan

ChaCha.com was featured on the Today show that was when I first took notice. I am not sure how much one could make doing this. I like the idea of having some kind of income which transfer to STX. I am open to hear about more work from home opportunities.

The Daily News reported an e-mail "work at home" scam that is traveling around the VI right now involving American Express Wire transfers - I didn't pay close attention.

If I were interested in anything like this, I would check it out carefully. What's the old saying, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Coming here from Seattle, I've known many people who used Guru.com as a source for finding computer industry contract work. I've known a couple of engineers who used other similar sites to find work all over the world and make exhorbitant incomes... but usually they have to travel to the location and it's not a work-from-home position. Many of these websites ARE legitimate, even if some are scams. Many times, the website host makes a small fee from employers posting jobs (like monster.com) and other times they make a percentage fee if you actually get a contract from one of the posted job openings (as do employment agencies), but most don't charge a job seeker a fee to browse or apply. If you as a job seeker are asked to pay an up front fee, you are more likely to be facing a scam situation. If you are asked to pay for an information package to get started... click the X and move on to something else.
