I was in the Cyberschmooz Cafe just 2 nights or so ago, and came across threads where people were asking: "How do you know that a work from home" opportunity is legitimate.
One young lady gave the name of an organization, and I swore I wrote the info down. My house, my carry-all bag and my car are now in a shambles, because I cannot find that peice of paper where I wrote the information.
I imagine that thread has been taken down, because I can't find it now. (sorry..I don't recall the dates of the posts, but they may have been from 2007 or 8).
I had even gone to the web site, and it's an organization where you subscribe for $9.99 a month, 19.99 a month and up, to see work-at-home assignments in your area. (Seemed that it was an Association of some sort).
My sister can not seem to find a job, and we need to do something QUICK.
She is not interested in network marketing (yet), and I looked into that site, particuarly for her. Now, I can't find it.

If you are talking about home-based typing, visit eLance.com a site for free lance typing.
There are far more scams and doubtful opportunities promoted online, than the number of legitimate opportunities.
I found my home-based career nearly 25 years ago, long before the internet.
I sell custom-printed promotional advertising to business, industry, organizations, as well as government buyers from local school boards to state and federal agencies. While I do most of my selling face to face, some are doing 90 to 100% of their sales via the internet.
It may or may not be what your sister is looking for, but will give her an idea or two.
