Dreaming of Hawaii

Hawaii is a place that one day I would love to visit. Days on the beach, nites eating at different restaurants and experiencing the local scene. One phrase if paradise had an address, getting an Hawaii Vacation Rentals would be it.

You’ll find incomparable amenities in our outstanding Hawaii vacation homes. Luxurious and convenient features, spacious living areas, custom furnishings, and artwork not found in even the finest of hotels.

Some of the properties on their website include

Hale Nani Loa Maka, our Kolea Villa, is a 3BR/3BA penthouse located at the Waikoloa Beach Resort. One of the finest condominiums in all of Hawaii, it sleeps 6 and offers 2,576 square feet of living space. Featuring private elevator access, gourmet kitchen, an extensive collection of Hawaiian art and outstanding views of Anaeho'omalu Bay and Kileaua, this vacation rental offers all the comforts of home in a resort setting

It features full-sized kitchens and expansive lanais on both levels, two master suites, a private wading pool, and a location so close to the ocean that you can frequently feel the spray from the ocean as waves break against the coastline.

Wahm reveal if they have been scammed

Welcome to the qotw of the week responses.
Have you fallen victim to a work at home scam? If so, what was it and what lessons did you learn. If not, what steps do take to make sure you have a legit opportunity

Jersey girl shares her ways to avoid a scam.

Frugal Mom reflects on some ways in the 1990s that she was scammed and duped by the dreams of working at home.

Here are some common scams
Pyramid Schemes - A pyramid scheme grants anyone membership for a fee, without giving something back of equal value. Not to be confused with multi-level marketing, which requires the sale of products or services from their members.

Chain Letters - A pyramid scheme. Illegal and they don't work.


Easy Work and High Pay -Beware of anyone that promises you lots of money for little effort. If it were that easy, everyone would be doing it!

Envelope Stuffing - Legal prosecution for participants becoming more common.

Craft Assembly - It's very hard to build a craft which meets their "standards".

Medical Billing - Cost thousands to start and it's very difficult to find clients. The medical community trusts only a few mega corporations for billing their patients.


Here a good resource if you are looking for telecommuting or work at home jobs
