Hi all, Be careful of what you sign up for. If any site asks you for money stay away. The majority of the time it is a scam. In addition, there are also those who bait you with their pie in the sky promises of making lots of money. Believe me the only ones making money are them. You pay for their so called exclusive programs and all of it is usually common sense information which can be gotten anywhere. I work for a government office and have seen people scammed out of over $6000. It is such a shame!!!!

I can second that! I watched my best friend get scammed out of about $100 with a, well I am not quite sure what it was scam. And the sad part was was that when he was running with the company as a free member he was making money, but he was drawn into the hype of making A LOT more. Supposedly. He had made almost that $100 while he was a free member.

that is true. there are alot of people who have been scammed. i am hoping all of those scammers get caught and go to jail. i am sure alot of them get away with what they do. especially the online scammers. because all of the ways that they lure people into their dirty traps. they are able to get away easier because they are able to hide their real identity.

I totally agree and yet many still fall prey to these scams. This shows howw many people are still naive and do not understand how to detect or avoid scam sites.

Yes its quite a shame. Anyone and most ppl have been scammed from these sites, especially if you are totally new to the "work at home" type of jobs. I myself have been looking around for quite a while, Ive been lucky enough that I have not been scammed so far.. I dont know much, but I do know this, if you are looking for work either online or not, chances are you need money and not give away money. Im only interested in making money enough to cover for some stuff but I dont expect to become rich either... its very important to report these type of sites for scams... in these times, its important to unite.
