Thank you for the warning and advice on how to avoid scams. The list of websites to check for existing complaints is very good.

5) Check the scam websites! scams - report the scam here - The Better Business Bureau - The Federal Trade Commission - ScamBusters - RipOff Report
For a small company it is wise to run a background check on the owners of the company, before you give them a significant amount of your money or your labor. When you work at home, you are letting their business use your home, phone, computer, electricity, utilities, in other words they are costing you a lot more than the cash they ask you to pay for their "opportunity." Before I got hit with an expensive scam, I saw How to Do a Company Background Check. Company background checks are a little more complicated that doing a background check on an individual. Doing a background check on the individual owners is a subset of checking out their company. You can do both of them for free, but it takes a little work on your part.
