hey guys there are many sites which tell you that you can earn loads of cash if you join their site. or giving part time jobs if you become a member of that site. don't join these sites,99% of these sites are fraud. you can join them if they are free to join,but if there is a membership fees eventhough its a small amount please don't join them. even if they say the actual fees is 40$ but today its only 7$ all that is just crap. and i request u all to share ur experiences,if you have come across any site which is really good, or if you got cheated by any site.

I have never been cheated by side simple because I don't spend money just to make money online. I only pay for my domain name and hosting service. Yes, it is unfortunate that there are tons of scam sites and I even made a blog post about 2 of them entitled Online Money Seekers – Beware of Work at Home Job Scams - http://fatherblogger.com/2009/02/26/online-money-seekers-–-beware-of-work-at-home-job-scams/ Alhtough the post is 5 months old, I think it can help fellow bloggers and others who want to make money online. Thanks!

I think that maybe only 5% of offers are legit! But if you don't at least read the offers you will not find the real ones. So hold on to your money and do some research. This way you won't pass up a good thing.

Yes, I agree with what you are saying. There are sites which charge a fairly large fees for their services, and one cannot be sure if the program would really work. I would not join any program which needs the upfront fee. These days, I am staying with programs where I get paid for the service I do for them. There are a number of very good sites that way.

Actually your words are reasonable. There are so many websites like that. If we don't take care, we may easily drop into the trap. Indeed, we shouldn't expect free lunch or something. Thank you

I try to avoid providing my bank/credit card information to all these kinds of websites. I join only if its free and its been lot of website that I join and did not earn any money. Good that you have brought this discussion so that we will get to know scam websites here.

What you said is very true. There are scam sites. If you are asked to pay upfront to make online money, just be sure that you are going to loose your money forever, even if they say that you can claim a refund if you don't earn from it. I have seen many such sites and I am sure people are loosing hundreds of dollars on such sites, everyday, Thats how these sites survive.

I understand your concern, there are indeed a lot of scam websites that promise lots of money but don't give you anything, but there are also many legitimate websites and companies that actually pay you and due to the popularity of online money-making scams people tend to ignore these real opportunities out of fear and mistrust. You have to ask yourself the right questions and analyze the chosen website or company before labeling it as a scam or a good money-making opportunity. I have an article on my website about identifying scams, I advise you to read it, maybe it will offer some helpful information. http://worldofgem.net/joinus.html - scroll all the way down until you find the " How to identify a business as a scam?" title under additional material.

Just yesterday I've cashed out $104 in one program and i'm aiming for another hundred by the end of august...
