This is just something I have seen myself on this site (aidpage). If someone comes online and says they will help you ,and then they won't give information ,or if they do ,you have to light a fire under them to tell you about what they offer , it is a scam. The Wizard has a page all of us should look at about this. As a person who is disabled and who gets tired easily , I have to be really careful to keep alert about stuff like this. When you are vulnerable , like most of us are when we come to aidpage , that is when the scam artists strike.

I found some (what appear to be) legitimate work at home opportunities for transcriptionists. The site also lists several different jobs and companies. A great site to check out.
