There are a lot of stories about online earnings scams around the world. Have you ever been scammed? How were you scammed?

scammers are all over and doing the best they can to prey on their next victim. its better to scrutinize them before joining. some online jobs are only bogus

This happened about 2 years ago when I signed up for a typing job online. They asked for 49.99 which I sent them and that was it. Never received any type of work from them. When I emailed them back that I wanted my money back they replied with a really nasty letter. It was a very bad experience which is when I learned that you shouldn't have to pay for a job online. They are suppose to be paying you.

Bad experience indeed. I have never been scammed but I feel pity for all people who have gone through any form of scam.

These Happen 1 year ago, back when I was a 14 year old boy tryong to find some good source of income on th net, And wher then I found out about expresspaid surveys, I'm really amused by what they promis, somewhat like I imagine having to earn $200-$400 dollars a Day, with just a onetime cost of $35 dollars to joun, I was really Fascinated by that time, and so I've decideed to save up money and try to register for that membership, and when I purchased it, just a bunch of scrap surveys with links to other websites pop out, with no earnings at all, it's really painfull, so now I think I've learn my lesson not to directly trust some good to see online jobs...

I go by the principle of not spending money to earn any. If anything, I prefer to join sites which require free participation only, instead of paying. I'm not saying all paid ones are scams, but this is my own preference. And so far, I am able to say that I've not been scammed and hopefully, I ever won't. I think for a site like mylot itself where most people claim to have been paid, it's definitely not a scam. I have been paid many times, and this is definitely one of the best sites ever for earning money online.
