Shame. Having had to give up work through ill-health, the idea of being paid
for what I already do seems attractive, but my experience is that there are
"work from home" scams out there where one pays up front for
the promise of work, which either never arrives or when you return it is
found to be "not up to standard" and you don't get paid for it.
Since this type of work is not considered "employment" within UK laws, it is
largely unregulated and has a poor reputation, and your legal remedies are
effectively extinguished by the contract you sign, not that most people
would be able to afford to litigate in any event.
