Legitimate Work At Home Jobs

Work-at-home schemes have flourished on the Internet. Although many are legitimate, some are fraudulent and have resulted in criminal charges. If you have been charged with operating a fraudulent work-from-home scheme, it is important to consult a criminal defense attorney who has the experience and knowledge to evaluate the charges and determine the best possible defense strategy.

At The Law Offices of David T. Schlendorf in Toms River, New Jersey, attorney Schlendorf defends clients against charges of operating work-at-home schemes. As a former prosecutor, he understands how cases such as these are developed. In addition, he is a certified criminal trial attorney, an honor held by only 2 percent of New Jersey lawyers.

Investigating the Charges and Protecting Clients' Rights

Mr. Schlendorf defends clients against charges of operating online fraud scams by evaluating the evidence and ensuring that the police preserved his client's rights at all stages of the investigation and arrest. He makes sure that the prosecution had conclusive proof that the scheme was fraudulent and that the charges did not stem from the disappointment of someone who hoped to make more money while working from home.

Work-from-home schemes cross the line into fraud when they request money for equipment, software or training. In some cases, the prospective worker provides credit card or bank account numbers as part of the registration or training process. In both cases, the work never materializes or the contractor is never paid.

Typical work-from-home scams include:

  • Data entry jobs that require the purchase of specialized software or a training manual
  • Offers to help you start your own business that require you to pay for information that you could obtain free on the Internet
  • Lists of work-from-home opportunities for sale on the Internet
