Data entry jobs can sound like perfection to someone that wants to work from home. Unfortunately, they are also the most commonly used bait in work from home scans. Thus, you need to carefully analyze any data entry job that sounds too good to be true.


In general, legitimate companies will offer a standard wage, nothing incredibly impressive. A hefty payday can be a sign of a scam. You also should never pay for software or a kit because this is also a scam. The following is a list of legitimate companies that offer real data entry positions.
