If they hire you, you will not be paying them. If they want $, run

A business is different, you will be getting product and supplies. Don't pay for a "business" where you do not get anything tangible.

Scams claim lots of money quickly

Your gutt says "too good to be true!"

Google company or site plus scam.

Cookie cutter page with lots of testimonials, and copies of checks

Promote how easy it is

"Commenting turned off" on any comment section... Yet, comments appear to be current

Read the fine print. It may be free, but if they want your credit card, run.... Often fine print says "we charge $100 after the first 30 days." with some clause that you owe them money after you click send.

Site toots money/not opportunity

Good luck!
