You haven't specified one specific country, but in general, the way to avoid problems is to carefully research the relevant immigration and labor laws in whichever country you want to go, then you acknowledge that many such offers may be illegal.

I am afraid there is no temporary (nonimmigrant) visa that allows you to be a tourist and work at the same time (except for H-1B, H-2B), and by work I mean getting paid by any US employer.
