My cousins are crazy about these get rich websites. They are planning to employ themselves in a data entry job which requires them to pay $45 in order for them to receive the training materials. I have not really tried an online data entry job and im not sure if these things are legit or if they really work. Can you send me some feedback?

I have looked into several of those as well, and they all charge you some crazy amount to get started. I don't trust im them though. Most of them even say they have a money back guarantee, but good luck enforcing that when you want your money back! I don't think you should have to spend money to make money, but if your cousins are interested in trying it, maybe they can just pay for it once and both use the material and hopefully come up with something.

I really dont know why my cousins are so stubborn. I have told them over and over again that the chance of it being a scam is more than 90. If it were that easy to get rich, then a lot of us would be enjoying a trip to the Bahamas and sipping margaritas by the pool. Thanks for your advice. :)

Think about it. You want to open your own business...how would you do that if you don't have to spend money to make it? That's what the legit online businesses are about. Your own business but online, not an actual building you would have to buy/rent not to mention cash register(s), merchandise, counters, display cases, etc etc. that you would have to buy in order to open and run your own business. Legit Internet marketing is full of opportunity if you put your mind to it and yes, you would still have to put some money into it but just a fraction of what it would cost to open an offline one. Just hard to find the legit ones is all.

There are huge number of data entry jobs available in the internet.But unfortuanately not all of them are geniune and legitimate.Infact now there is a growing misconception that online data entry jobs are purely scams,due to many occurence of scam in the online industry.Data entry jobs involves preperation of reports,correspondence,databasesetc for the industry. If you are looking for the legitimate online job you will be in a dilemma whether they acctually pay you or not.It is true that most sites requires sign up feesyou best shot is to check for BBB or FTC for the legitimacy of the website you Join.And also if they give you a money back guarentee. If you tell me the website which you want to I can tell you whether its Scam or not just comment on my response abt that site.

Hi, check first if the site is legitimate, there's a lot of scams in the internet, programs that excites us with a lot of promises and testimonials, be on guard, take time to search and investigate first before making a decission.
