Today is very bad day for me, I was invested last year $75 with one of the site, it is called ongoingprofit.com, they have been offered me some packages which cost me $75, they promised that you will get good money earnings monthly,and they gave me a pack and ftp user name and password for my domain name, then upload all the site package and completed all the work with my personal domain, then it was looks like professional website, after that I worked for my site submissions with different sites for getting good earnings by visiting people to my site, but there was no earnings at all, lastly today when I opened with internet explorer my site was not working, there is no domain & I tried to login with my user name and password to my site with support of ftp, but that all information is wrong. Now what was wrong with me, why it's happend with my site, where is the ftp user name and password which I already used, I am not getting any thing about this, can you any one suggest me what I have to take a step to this moment? and I want to tell you one thing the site owner or provider very delay to reply my all questions, even then please give your suggestions for this matter.

I'm sorry for your loss my friend. This is the reason why I don't want to invest money online. It's very risky. I hope you do get your investment back, please be more careful next time. $75 is a lot, beware of sites that ask for such amounts or offer a huge amount.

I'm very sorry this has happened to you, twistershot. There are lots of very bad, dishonest people lurking out there in cyberspace, and I think it's probably wise not to be so trusting. Definitely don't ever give your bank account details or passwords to anybody on the internet - even your date of birth can make you an easy target for identity theft. I really hope this doesn't happen to you again.

Well, it's obviously a scam especially you have to invest for it and promising that you'll get more of your investments or something like that. Scam is everywhere most especially in e-mails. If you haven't read any scam emails you have to find one. You'll notice that it's the same way as they did to you. Sorry to hear that next time you have to be careful especially when its about MONEY.

Wow! $75? For me it is a big amount and I don't still have that amount in my paypal or even in my alert pay account. Well if you are scammed may be nothing you can do but to learn what happen to. My suggestion is to search first the site if it is not a scam, ask people here in mylot? go to so forums and ask about the site, the owner everything that might help you to determine if it is a scam or not before you considering to pay.

I feel sorry for you if indeed you got scammed with the site you're pertaining. Online business is a very risky proposition for many reasons. Among them are, it is solely based on trust. You won't even be able to meet you're business partner if I can call it that and there's no formal contract between you too, except a website terms and agreement which is primarily his and anytime he wishes to. he/she can shut it down. With this you are in a disadvantage position and vulnerable for scamming. Good luck I hope you could get your investment back.

It is very easy to fall into a scam like that with so many websites out there. If they don't reply to you and I am sure you had to 'agree' to their 'conditions' beofre you started you are probably out the cash. The way that I play it safe is to follow other people into various sites that they show me that have made money or I use the free membership until I make cash and then invest it. Good luck this whole situation. I feel for you!

you are scammed big time , those are sites they show you at the beginning that everything is ok and if that got the money and you trust and your believe after a while then they change with everything so it doesnt cost them money but they will only recieve money for that. and don't worry about it you are not the only one ( not with me ) but things like that happens to a lot of persons around the globe and the most internet fraud is coming from Nigeria. Good Luck and be carefull with what you are doing online. Greetings Che

Sorry to hear that you have been scammed. Is there anyone from your own country who is genuinely successful in internet marketing or blogging? You can get that person to be your mentor. Out in the online world there are many scammers waiting for victims. Please be more careful and do not send money to those online companies that you do not know or trust.
