My Home Job Search Short Review

Name: My Home Job Search
Owner: Michael Anderson
Website: www.myhomejobsearch.com
Price: $29

Summary: My Home Job Search is a service which claims to provide it’s members with some of the best work at home jobs available.

Basically, they provide you a list of available ‘done from home’ jobs, paying from $14-$56 per hour.

With My Home Job Search, you can create a free account, which is as far as I got. After noticing some familiar scams being recommend by My Home Job Search, I refused to take their service seriously.

In order to participate in the actual job search/connection, you will need to become a Platinum member.

I decided not to pursuit a Platinum membership with My Home Job Search for the many reasons shared below….

Recommended? No.

My Home Job Search Review

My Home Job Search is a service that claims to connect at home job seekers with jobs that they can perform from home, online.

These jobs pay between $14-$56, according to the website.

In all honesty, you DON’T need a service like My Home Job Search to find work at home positions. You can do it on your own.

The problem is many people don’t know where to look for at-home jobs, so services like My Home Job Search are in existence. For $29, you get access to a list of jobs and other things like a personal coach (be wary), according to the website.

All in all for $29 this is not a bad deal, if it is a legitimate service.

The real issue with My Home Job Search is the scams they expose it’s members to. I encountered many under the free membership among other red flags.

Too Many Scam Hints

I was very close to purchasing the Platinum membership for a further look, but as mentioned, I was pretty disgusted by the many links to scam sites.

It is also my guess that once one purchases the Platinum membership, they will encounter many unnecessary up sells for this service. So I decided to just save the $29.

One of the reasons I withdrew from making a purchase, the fake testimonials.

Fake Testimonials

The above pictures on the left come directly from the My Home Job Search website and are presented as testimonies. There’s more of them on the site.

Each testimony pretty much commends the My Home Job Search service and also shares how great it is to work from home.

Each of the images that you see on the right however can be purchased and downloaded online from a photo-stock website known as Shutterstock.

Anyone can purchase and download these images, at which point you are free to use them how you like. In the case of My Home Job Search, they’ve decided to use them as testimonies. It can be concluded that these testimonies are not real.

Fake Ownership

It’s the same thing with the ownership. “Michael Anderson” the CEO of My Home Job Search, more than likely a pen name, couldn’t seem to share a real image either:

This isn’t a complete ‘deal breaker’ for me and they do even mention in the terms of use that:

Certain names, graphics, logos, icons, designs, words, titles or phrases at this website may constitute trade names, trademarks or service marks of MyHomeJobSearch.com or of other entities.

Just note that the use of fake testimonies and also made-up names is typically used by scams.

What To Expect

After joining My Home Job Search, you are presented with 4 relatively easy steps that you can participate in even as a free member.

  • Step 1 – Call your “startup specialist”. No thanks.
  • Step 2 – Make Your First $100 Today. You are asked to join 3 different survey sites at this point, all of which are surprisingly legit such as Global Test Market. You will NOT be making $100 your first day however by joining different survey sites.
  • Step 3 – Download eBook. See below.
  • Step 4 – Getting Started Video. You will need to be a Platinum member to access everything seen in the video.

It Was Such A Good Read

After following along and reaching Step number 3, I decided to download the eBook. The eBook has some great information and even valuable tips for working at home.

However you will eventually come to a point where they recommend a few programs that will “help you earn some extra cash from home”.

Some of these were very familiar scams such as Earn At Home Club, Take Surveys For Cash, and Millionaire Bizpro. All of which I have reviewed on this site and are well-known scams.

My Home Job Search mentions in the Terms of Use:

The linked sites are for your convenience only and you access them at your own risk.

This is to cover their own ass should you (or anyone) decide to take action using these links, be sure to cover your own ass also…

Is My Home Job Search A Scam?

2/ 0
My Home Job Search - Overall Rating

A “service” that deliberately exposes it’s members to scams in my opinion becomes more of a risk than a solution. This is why I do not recommend My Home Job Search.

Again, I decided to not purchase the Platinum membership so I did not get access to the “Companies” section where you can apply for the listed jobs.

Another thing worth mentioning is one of the jobs shown in the training video.

In the “training” video they show a job listed by Amazon as an example for home based customer service paying $11/hr. This completely contradicts the strongly advertised $14-$56 by My Home Job Search.  Really guys?

If you are looking for at home jobs consider using free services like Monster.com, Flexjobs, or even Craigslist. Just be sure to do your due diligence as there can be many “tricksters” online.

Working From Home

As of this year, I began working from home ‘full-time’. I do not have a stay at home job but rather learned how to build my own income producing business using the internet. You can to!

      Hi Heather, I am here 🙂

      I am also thoroughly confused by your message above. I think you are confusing my website with the My Home Job Search website. Above is a review on the MY Home Job Search website where I basically do not recommend using their service.

      My website, extrapaycheckonline.com, does not charge people, ask for any credit card information, and all information found on this site is entirely free.

      You may want to contact My Home Job Search from their website in order to cancel! I have no relation whatsoever with them 🙂

    IT IS A SCAM!!! Just spent several hours over 3 days trying to find out how to start this job/career/business MYHOMEJOBSEARCH advertised. “Brandon” contacted me within a few hours of applying asking me why I am looking, how much I am looking to earn, what are my goals, am I teachable but then started asking about my credit and how much debit I had, The Red Flags started. Then “Brandon” said their students were required to watch a video http://www.webmarketservices.net/e-commerce/ , write down questions I have, what my goals are, and exactly my debit. I watched the video twice still I learned nothing about what I would need to do at this job/career/business, it didn’t even tell me what THEY do. Today I was asked if I did my homework, so let’s, get started “so what is your debit?” I told him I am not discussing my finances, they have nothing to do with employment, he tried to tell me all interviewers ask this. Wrong I said because I have been on several in the last year and NO ONE asked me about my debit. I told him I’m not stupid I have heard and learned that you never discuss this over the phone, in this day and age. So then I tried again to ask about what the job was? what I have to do to do the job? His answer, “Why should I recommend you?” “Because I will work!”
    He put me on hold to see if I could speak to “Ray Morgan” the VP, I thought never heard of entry level positions talking to a VP or that only they would be able to tell me about the job, but he surprisingly wasn’t available. So he sent me to “Dave Bands” supervisor. “Dave” answers the phone and asked how things were going with “Brandon”? I said they started out fine but I’m trying to find out what I would be doing for this job. He started with trying to get the debit info again, I repeated myself to him. He said “this is not a job it’s a business”, “OK, so what do I have to do in the business?” “We get 4-5k people each day wanting their $97 product (I looked up Proprietary Software) some are just curious, just want a hobby, or make a few hundred dollars, we aren’t interested in them.” There it was they just wanted me to buy their software and as I sit here writing this now I know that my job would be, to waste people’s time, get them thinking that after all these questions they will be hired and able to make money “3k+/week”.
    IT IS A SCAM AND I KNOW THIS BECAUSE WHEN I SAID IT TO “DAVE BANDS” HE HUNG UP.
    IF IT WASN’T A SCAM THEN HE WOULD HAVE TOLD ME WHAT I WOULD BE DOING TO EARN THAT MONEY AND HE DIDN’T.
    Please pass this on, no one should be allowed to do this.

      Thank you for sharing this valuable information for others to see Cathi!

      This should help people (visiting this site) make an educated decision before getting involved with My Home Job Search. It is clear that they were interested in helping themselves and not you (the customer).

      It’s common for these places (scams) to ask how much money you have/make so they can get an idea of how much they can take. It’s terrible. Even the website you shared above looked half-assed, I can only wonder how poorly put together this “software” would be.

      Thank you for taking the time to make others aware of this, Cathi. I’m glad you were able to see them for what they really are.

    Wow, that was very informative. I just had a son and I don’t want to return to the workforce just yet, however, I am needing to bring in more income to my home. Because he is a babe, you cannot stop baby babble, so I was looking for data entry or transcriber. Everything looks like a scam, and I’m not sure which sites are legit. Can you recommend any?

      Hello, K.

      Have you tried any of these employment-based websites? Monster.com, Indeed.com, Glassdoor.com.

      These are the sites that I would use if I were looking for a work at home job. Just remember to do your due diligence before getting involved with a company/position while searching these websites for jobs. Yes they are trustworthy sites, but sometimes you can still run into a few wrongdoers.
