Great question, Randy.
"Homeshoring," as it is now being called, is a growing trend in this country. People who have been dissatisfied with the customer service they receive from foreign-based call centers have been quite vocal in their displeasure, and corporations are finding the answer to the dilemma of the high cost of call centers to be putting CSR's to work in their home. The benefits are many; decreased costs, happier employees, and most of all, happier customers :-)
I'm in the process of putting together a webpage that gives more information about this phenomenon, as well as links to the various companies that offer employment in this area. Doing the research I discovered some of the companies that you mentioned. LiveOps seems to be quite legitimate - I'm not at all familiar with babytobee.com (I don't see an employment link on their website - do you mind revealing where you discovered that they hire home workers? I'd love to add them to my list of companies.) and I don't know anything really about the other company, although I have visited their website.
The big players seem to be Alpine Access, Live Ops, West at Home, and one that I am really impressed with, which is Willow. If you go to their website at http://www.willowcsn.com you will see that they are extremely professional. Some people have trouble with the fact that they require each agent to be incorporated and that they have higher start-up costs than some of the others (you have to pay for training for each corporation you work for), but I like the idea that they want their agents to basically set up a small business and be independent contractors. I personally think it makes for a higher-quality work force with less turnover, but others may disagree. At any rate, it seems to be working for them. I believe they were one of the first companies to offer home employment.
I suggest you watch the video on their website and look over their requirements. They are pretty stringent. I'm considering going to the information meeting they are having next week in Charlotte simply because I'm interested in the homeshoring concept and I know I could learn a lot from that.
Anyway, here are a few articles I found about "homeshoring."
Good luck to you,

| 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...
