With every (well most) human benefit comes some malevolent “strings-attached” scenario. What are we on about you might wonder. Well, to say the age of the internet has brought about its great progress would be overstating the obvious. For example you had to be in a class room in some school away from your home to acquire knowledge or get a formal education. Now, you don’t even have to leave your bedroom! (should you be that lazy). Doctors can now carry out complex medical procedures with the help of some other colleague who is miles away from where (s)he is. Obscenely humongous (you won’t find it in the dictionary) sums of money can be moved from one point to the other without the need for fuel guzzling armoured trucks (except in movies).
Then, there is the flip-side particularly as it relates to commercial transactions. We’ve garnered an infamous on-line reputation for being very; shall we say less than trust worthy. Of course, this doesn’t mean everyone here is, just a few not-so-nice people who know how to use a keyboard and sell ice to an Eskimo!
In a bid to earn an income without jeopardising the home front, more parents (at least outside Africa probably) are deciding to work from home usually through the internet.
It may or may not shock you to know that persons and “organisations” (yes organisations) are still ready to fleece you while trying to make an honest living and will go to great and low (make that very low) lengths to go about it.
Kindly point here to get a greater insight into what I’m on about. Now, don’t let the title put you off. Take time to read through to really understand that things aren’t always as they seem.
It may be in North America or elsewhere, but so were soaring share prices!
