    Does anyone have experience with working on contracted projects from home through websites such as guru.com? I registered with them a few months ago on a lark, and I've rec'd lots of replies for offers to help with projects from home.

    I'm very skeptical because you have to give them all your bank info for direct deposit, just wanted to see if anyone knew a thing about them.

    Thanks,

    Every job I've ever had needed my account info for direct deposit.

    I haven't received an actual paycheck in years. Banks are pushing for more electronic transfers because it is cheaper for them. My phone company tried to switch me to electronic transfer without my permission.

    But because it sounds so reasonable, that makes it a good scam. I would not give anyone my bank account information until I was very sure who they were.
