On Sunday I joined a site for making extra money. It said that the amount of earning would be 50 pence for each job completed and accepted. I did three jobs. Then I logged on yesterday and it had note saying the amount of earning for each job will soon be 25 pence. There weren't any jobs available. I tried to log in today and it said user name and password are incorrect. What do you think?

Hey,maximax8. Sorry to hear that,but i think this is the so-called scam. I've heard this kind of site but never registered or being cheated personally or some friend of mine.Obviously,you are the first.But don't be discouraged,as an old saying goes,a fail into the pit and a gain in your wit. So cheer up and do a little research before you really decided to something especially for that you've to invest some money at the beginning.

with a one or two payment proof it cannot be proved that the site is legit.I know that the site is a scam site and now with 0.25 pound per review its hard to earn money there.Beaware of that site.

Oh, that's pretty bad. It sounds like that this website is a scam. Websites that claim to offer members a good earning, usually they can't keep their promise. They will change rules all the time so that members are not able to qualified to earn from them. This is what I hate. I love China

It sounds like it was either a marketing push to get more people to join or a scam. There are a lot of these on the internet, probably TOO many. I hope that it was a free place to join. :(

I don't think it is scam. Many members got paid from that site. It is "Work Online Org" [http://work-online.org.uk/] They sent a mail explaining why they have to do it. They say membership has increased so in order to pay properly they had to revise the payment methods. They pay in this order: Stories: Paying Amount 001-100: £0.25 101-300: £0.50 301-500: £0.75 501++++: £1.00 I think they are no scam! They just have to manage revenue according to their growing member base. It is quite common. But what future holds nobody knows! Let us hope they will manage and stay in the business longer If you haven't joined and want to join then please include 'WOR:0261' as your referrer. Thanks! Happy Mylotting!

Hello maximax, I am sorry to hear about this but I think that site might be a scam. there are a lot of scam sites going around the internet who would cancel your membership just when you are about to reach payout or something like that.I would suggest you to stick with the old, trusted sites and do a bit of research on the new sites before joining them.

Well it is quite clear that the site is a scam and has cheated you off your money.The internet is filled with such cheats so basically we have to be careful before joining a site and do a little research on it to be on the safe side.Also if we have personal experience with scam sites,we can share the info with others so that they do not end up in the same situation.Please post the name of the site so that others can benefit by not joining it.I promote only the legit sites on my blog so I really want to know which site did this to you Happy mylotting.
