Well I just came across a task last night, and the tasks was not so descriptive it was about reviewing a site which he had put up a link for.......and the price for it was about $3.50......... But what was unusual was.......the task creator was not the regular one......it was posted by a user.......and neither had it posted the task which it should have actually been posted I mean the format.......he had asked us to write about 300-400 words, but there was no text box available.......we had to mail it to the task creator........ According to the dispute redressal of tasks......I guess they check on the rejection rate of the task creator and bans them if they continuously reject entries even if the review or writing task was valid and they way they wanted it to be.......so if we mail it to the task creator......there would be no such proof of rejections and i also wonder how will he pay us for our hard work........ I rather choose not to do it as I wanted the view of my fellow mylotters before I go ahead...... Thanks!!!!!

Hi John4Christ, good choice. Sounds a bit fishy to me. I wouldn't trust it. No way to get paid. Should have reported the user. Happy myLotting!

I know exactly what task you are talking about. I had actually accepted that task at first. I started to go through the website. As I thought about it more and more, I felt uncomfortable with it. They would have my personal information because of my email address. There would be nothing to actually submit via the task! It just didnt add up. I was afraid I would do all of the work for nothing. So I forfeited it. I say do it if you are comfortable. What they were asking would take some time. If you think it is worth it, go for it! But like you mention, there are definitely some risks!

I am not sure which Task you were refering too, or when it was available as every time that I check out the Tasks area there is never anything offered. So for me I would Never do a Task you were unsure of as in payment, etc. and I would also question anything not looking right as well.
