The newest "fast easy ways to make money" scam:  Reshipping fraud

Work-at-home shippers are promised substantial amounts of money. All they have to do is receive, repackage, and then mail merchandise to a foreign address. What the shipper doesn't know is that the merchandise was paid for with stolen credit cards. In effect, the work-at-home shipper becomes part of a fencing operation by receiving and mailing stolen goods.

Operating a home-based business is just like any other--they require hard work and good products or services, and it takes time to make a profit.
