Finding a working from home typing job does not have to be like navigating a minefield if you go about it sensibly. The internet can seem like a minefield where taking one wrong step can mean that you are knocked off your feet having been ripped off by yet another scam.
Many people who are looking for working from home typing positions are trying to find a job where they can use their typing skills to work for a company that allow them to do the work from their homes.

In fact many office based admin type jobs are not practical after the cost of childcare and travel are taken into account.
As with all types of work the best place to start your search is with the online job agencies and recruitment companies. There are many positions available where you can be based at home, many of these jobs are typing based or have some degree of typing required. There are of course many other types of home based job that you can do besides typing such as being a telephone operator.
Most genuine jobs will not require you to pay any fees and they will require you to complete some sort of application process along with a telephone interview.
