Look into work like dog walking or babysitting OP, at the very least you may make more short term!
You get quite a bit of money for being a nanny. It's a lot of work, but if you start out doing it for only 1 child then it'd be easier, plus the kids nap so you get a bit of a quiet time. You could go nanny at someone else's house, or you could run a daycare from your home. Here in Canada rates are about $40-$50 a day per child. For the amount of money you can get, I'd say it's worth looking into. And, as I've said, starting with just one kid is pretty easy. It's when you get 3 or 4 that chaos really ensues.
Seriously? You'd earn way more than that doing the same work in Central or Eastern Europe.
Not really a scam. There are a lot of jobs on a lot of sites aimed at taking advantage of people who are REALLY desperate for work by seriously underpaying. But because they tend to have more flexible hours or degree demands, plus the work is "under the table" they more or less get away with it. So, basically no less of a scam than an "entry level" job demanding a 4+ year degree and >10 years of experience.
It takes a while! Once you get the hang of it you'll be making $10 an hour. I started off really slow also.
