Did you ever pay to enter a business in internet and what was the result?

I'm very conscious that many of those "get rich while sleeping" sites in Internet simply want to catch people, and cash in between $5 to $1000, or even more. What I can't understand is that these sites may be still online, able to cheat new victims. Up to now, I haven't paid a cent to nobody, but there are some prospects that really look good. Did you ever pay in advance to enter such a business and what was the result? Did you earn something? or did you fell prey to a scam in the web and what did you do about? Thanks for commenting!

Interesting question u ask. some of their programes really look atractive but not that good. If u ask, i will simply say that i've never paid a dime in doing business online cos there are a lot of scam on the net. Although there are still some genuine once but its really not easy to get. The internet business requires lots of skills. It is just like a game. If you don't know how to play it, then you suffer on the net in the hands of the prey. The only business i've paid for on the net was the WEALTH BUILDER programme which i know 4 sure is not scam. I've gotten much more than i used in starting the business. So its not that bad on the net, only that you have to be carefull and follow the footstep of those u've seen doing that business and also making it.

Thanks for your advice. And you're right, one has to look at this like it were a game.

I haven't found anything yet that didn't look like a scam to me. I sure won't be signing up for anything that claims to pay several hundred dollars a day to start, but wants you to pay a fee first.

Absolutely true. It is better to be prudent than being duped.

Although I have never paid anything to enter into an online program I did invest in one of those HYIP programs. Very risky and a scam in itself but I got paid so Im happy.

Well, you were lucky, but perhaps now you'll think it twice before spending a dime!

No I never have and probably never will ever pay for a program online. I just sign up for free ones and make tons of money with those. If I have to pay it probably is not worth it. I really like money.. thanks.

If fact these sites seems to be so attractive and a lot of effort is put to creating but why are people so scared to enroll - I just dont understand - I asked one site that I cannot pay through credit card whether I can pay in cash - since then I dont have a reply from them.

It is because these sites are essentially anonymous, you don't have who is really responsible. It could be very, very difficult to get money back and very costly too. So most people say: "Oh, what the deuce, I paid for my experience..." and don't do nothing. That's exactly what those sites expect.

Yes I have.. a few years ago I bought into one of the "randomizer" programs, send a dollar to everyone via paypal and then promote your own site type deal, I made $37 dollars over the course of about three months, and then the place just disapierd. So technically7 I made money... There are some legitimate freelance exchange type programs that are kind of like matchmakjers for online workers out there... And the gifting programs, although shady are legitimate if you work your butt off and promote, which also takes money... I now stick to my real job, and painting houses on my days off and using free programs on the web like hits4pay and the like.. http://kenscash.blogspot.com Watch out for anything that wants money up front for something other than a solid product.. If you can find some wholesale stuff online and then sell it on ebay or something would be ok.....good luck

It is always risky to invest your precious money online, untill you decide to own our own business. I have never paid any money so far except HYIP's

Nobody will give money for nothing. In the end, all those promises come to nothing, and you will be glad . Lately I saw many very long articles about the one and only method to get fabulous wealth, and you have to do nothing, ah but one thing: buy their receipt to get money out of nothing! And then they ask you to send some dollars to e-gold. No thanks!

I've never done it because I've always been raised to the belief of never paying for work. If it actually works for people to have work while having to pay a fee up front, then great. I don't think I could see myself something like that. I'd rather not have to pay for work. I've not paid a cent for work and I don't intend to unless I decide later on I want to build a major business. That will be the only time I will invest money.
