I usually check on google and see the reviews of the website, and how long has it been running for and is it a good company and does the links and buttons work on the site.
If it requires you to give money don't do it chances are they will take it and never show up again, and make some lies why they need it when a employer should not charge any fees for joining.
I check the information, and see what the payrate is and how long to get into my paypal account and is it worth the time and effort of doing the job in the first place.
Check the pay dates, if it going to take a month than it is not good and not worth doing the work and waiting that long for the pay and waste of time and effort you did in the first place.

These are good points. :)
That is why when dealing on freelancing sites, better to do those hourly rate jobs. That way you can ensure that you will be paid compared to those jobs without upfront payments. It is also so true that if its too good to be true like in PTC, if the pay is like a dollar per click, definitely that is a big scam. :)

...but always do research before...

That is the best comment and advice.  You should always do research on a company to see if they are a scam and also keep a list of what you find for others to see so they don't get scammed.  All you have to do is go on any search engine, put the name of the site down in the search query and the word scam next to it.  If there is a scam report on it, it will show up.  But don't take them 100%.  Read the complaints to see if it is just someone not happy with them because the person did not read their policy statement before starting.  I have actually seen places that were listed as scams because the people who rated them as such did not take the time to read the policy statements and agreements.  A lot of times it is the mistake of the person not the company that has happened.

It is so unbelievably easy to do this that I don't know why more people don't do it. Of course, if you hang out in a WAH community most of the people there are also really quick to tell you whether or not something is a scam. Since I've been working online for 10 years now I've actually gotten so good at telling whether or not something is a scam without doing this research but I still like to double check myself sometimes as I've been known to think too fast on my feet occasionally LOL

Well, what about an employer who got your profile and email address from an online job search then got in touch with you to ask for a writing sample? The sample is according to the kind of business they have, writing about legal records. They don't have a website and a company name and their email addresses are just the gmail address. They said they are just a group that outsourced their articles for several clients. Anyway, I did write but when I was about to send it, I thought of asking for the format. They said I was a bit behind since the position had been filled up. And I thought I could start with the article whenever I am ready and as soon as I can because that was what I was told when the assignment was given to me. Still, they said I could submit my article for future use in case they would need more writers. I DID NOT send my article even though I thoroughly researched for it. I thought of writing back, but I decided to move on. I don't want to waste more time doing that!

I have been scammed on PTC sites as well as writing sites that vanished when the time to pay arrived. The PTC where I was scammed were HYIP that promised upto 150 percent ROI. I became greedy and invested on those programs and lost a big money.

   Mеdiсаl Billing оr Сlаims Prосеssing: "Vеry fеw mеdiсаl prоfеssiоnаls will lеt just аnyоnе hаndlе privаtе mеdiсаl infо," sаys Аtkins, еspесiаlly with nеw hеаlthсаrе privасy rulеs in еffесt.

This is my list -

аssеmbly Jоbs - Nо, yоu саn't mаkе lоts оf mоnеy аssеmbling сrаft kits оr аny оthеr typе оf kits. Yоu саn wаstе mоnеy оn а pасkаgе tо gеt yоu stаrtеd, thоugh.
Dаtа еntry Jоbs - Yоu'll sее lоts оf listings fоr dаtа еntry jоbs. Thеy аrе usuаlly еithеr pоsitiоns pоsting аds оr а sаlеs pitсh fоr а kit thаt will gеt yоu stаrtеd
Multi-Lеvеl Mаrkеting (MLM) whiсh invоlvеs rесruiting nеw pеоplе, аnd mоrе nеw pеоplе, tо sеll thе prоduсt. If аll yоu аrе dоing is trying tо find mоrе pеоplе tо dо whаt yоu'rе dоing, kееp in mind thаt thеrе аrе prоbаbly thоusаnds оf оthеr pеоplе аttеmpting tо dо thе sаmе thing. Mоst оf thеm аrеn't gеtting riсh. аlsо nоtе, thаt MLM isn't а jоb with а pаyсhесk - it's stаrting а businеss, with nо guаrаntееs
