    Hey everyone. A friend of mine is a full time student and doesn’t have transportation. He lives close enough to the college that he can walk. He needs some income though and is having trouble finding a job. Especially given the transportation issue. Do any of you know of jobs that can be done from home via the internet that are reputable? Any that you may already be using yourselves? I don't want any schemes or bad places. I have tried to look for him but so many require you talking on the phone like customer service, and since he is Deaf this is not a possibility. Any help would be much appreciated!:fingersx:

    The only thing is sell crafts. like basket making and things like that. He can order supplies from the internet so he doesn't have to go out the door.

    Does he have free bus rides at college?

    How about buying a used and cheap car for now so that he could make money at work?

    I worked every summer to make money, and then go back to school in the fall. I think that it is only way.

    How about if he gets a job at college such as a busboy or waiter? I understand that your friend has a full time student. It is better than nothing.

    It is not a simple to work at home because there are so many out there doing the same thing. It would be lucky if his business is popular. That would be rare. I have thought of it for my own business, and it is extremely difficult to be deal with scammers online. Actually, authorities and FBI agents will NOT help you to catch the scammer unless you work for the government - that's whole different story. (Actually, I learned my lesson.)

    Good question. No idea. No deaf people ever bring up or talk about their home business in the public - I mean to meet with people, not on the deaf forum.

    The reason is my friend who is a homemaker would like to work for a company but do it at home. Her youngest daughter will start school full time in the fall so she will be alone all day. She is looking for a part time job working from home. She has contacted several medical offices and they told her that she needs to be able to do phone work. :ugh3:

    Try surveys. They pay you, not sure if it's real, I never tried but some of my friends got paid some.

    surveys work, but they don't pay a lot, and usually they won't send checks until you meet the minimum requirement for getting paid.

    I am thinking about PayPal. Do you think that it is worth it for you to use the PayPal service for your home business? I would think that eBay is making too much money and too greedy. What about a bank service in your local? (I am not familiar with the bank service.)

    I only know that we must not use escow services because they are well-known for scammer's business.

    paypal is basically like an online bank. so for a home based business.. you can tell people to pay for their stuff via paypal. But I think Paypal requires that you have a bank account connected to your account with paypal. So if you want to use it to collect money via home based business.. you could.

    And paypal requires a fee if someone transfers money from their paypal to yours. I think it depends on amount. I had gotten a transaction from a friend, and ended up costing him like 7 or 8 bucks for the transaction.. so you have to bear their transfer fees in mind when asking people to pay via paypal.

    This is personal expierence. So it's just a Fyi.

    Hello,

    I'm trying to follow the job posting guidelines so hopefully I don't get in trouble for this! Ha! I just started a new business, www.logicdepartment.com and am looking for people to work for me. They must have high speed internet, videophone, and computer. Those who work for me will be a lot of contacts through videophone, do different administration stuff, calling, tutoring, background checks, etc. If you are interested, go to the website, click on the e-mail under 'Contact Us' tab to me for interest in working for me. It is a work from home, independent contractor position and hours are flexible. It is up to you to decide if it's a scam or not but I promise it is not a scam but please do let me know if it 'sounds' like a scam. I am worried for that but I need staff.
