Thanks to a guy who has WAY too much time on his hands, and a burning desire to get to the bottom of almost anything…
Here is the truth behind those “Work At Home” signs you see posted on telephone poles, fences, and walls all over town. Who’s putting them up? How legit are they?
You might be surprised to learn that while each looks slightly different and each lists a different telephone number, most of them are from the same company!
According to Rob at Cockeyed.com
- At least 95% of anything that says “work from home” is promoting the Herbalife business.
- An article he found on Google mentioned that 60% of all “work from home” offers are from Herbalife.
Aside from Herbalife, the most popular Street Spam signs are: Work at Home, Work From Home, I Lost 30 Pounds in 30 Days, Have a PC, We Buy Houses, Affordable Health Insurance, Budget Health Plans, and Going Out of Business.
If you are tired of seeing such signs cluttering the streetscapes and vistas in your neck of the woods, rest assured that YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

My very first job after college was as a Career Counselor — helping college graduates choose their ideal career and plot a course toward their dream job. Ever since then, I've been helping others streamline the job search process — by focusing only on what's most important and ways to stand out from other job candidates. As an entrepreneur myself who works from home full-time, I'm especially passionate about helping others fulfill their entrepreneurial dreams. When I'm not helping people find ways to get paid doing what they love, you'll find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
