Chandra - Good question.
There are actually some companies who pay you to work at home, and they seem to be on the increase. I haven't had any personal experience with them, but I've read about them on some work-at-home forums and I see that others have had some success with them.
For the most part, I think they aren't so much data entry as they are some outbound calling sites, but from what I understand they are legitimate. I've seen people post on various message boards that they do indeed work for them. I know that they have a long waiting list, but you could check with some of them.
http://www.youdictate.com (I think this may be more data entry type work)
You might also try both searching on craigslist.org if you're in or near one of the metropolitan areas listed on that site, and you could even post a message there saying that you're available for different types of work. I see messages all the time for short-term contract work. The best part of craigslist.org is that it's completely free to list. On someone's suggestion I listed a dining room set that I needed to sell quickly and sold it IMMEDIATELY, so it's a very effective site.
BELIEVE IT OR NOT, I used to actually work for a company doing data entry at home, and I gave it up. I did so for several reasons (not the least of which was that we were losing contracts right and left to other countries) but also because I still did not have the flexibility I needed. It just never failed that a MOUND of work would come in just when I was the busiest with other things...it was difficult to develop a set schedule.
I hope this information is helpful.
The REAL Truth About "Work At Home" Jobs

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
