I just bumped into a site that promised to earn 3$-4$ a day, but here's the catch you need to pay 1.36$ as membership pay directly to the member who referred you. Is it legit or scam?please help.

Try imagine trying to convince other internet users,complete strangers, to give you a dollar+, to join,almost next to impossible even if it involves one measly dollar,schemes like this can only work if there is trust but from feedback here alone just goes to show,internet users are a very fickle untrusting lot,all mostly wants someting for nothing,if thinking of this ,recruit people who actually know you and willing to risk a whole one dollar something..otherwise i doubt u can make any money unless u yourself have a huge network of friends who trust u enough to give u a dollar and they recruit their friends and so on.

I think you are using the word scam very loosely. Pyramid schemes have been universally branded as a scam. Sure it may pay some people especially at the beginning, but the pyramid will collapse at some point, and so that people here brand this as a scam. Trust is the commodity traded by Ponzi schemers. Using paypal does not guarantee that it is not a pyramid scheme (hence a scam). Paypal has a different threshold before it declines use of its facility. Schemes like this which apparently looks valid will pass muster. It is only when the downline becomes too clunky and unwieldy that the whole thing collapses and is called a scam.

if that member ask for money then of course its a scam no matter how many huge payment proof they have besides how will you know it its really them. if your just new in online income then better start to free site that offers money without any investment since you still need to know more about the ins and out of online money industry, if you think your confident enough already and you think the site is legit then go ahead but make a lot of research first and dont just believe on someones proof of payment.

I think I understand what do you mean by paypal program. It is Make 100 dollars a day in paypal program. Well, it is not program that made by paypal. They use paypal as the payment processor. You have to buy $1.36 to buy the information from them then you have to promote their product too. Stay away from that site. That is fonzy scheme. You won't get your money easily. You will get $1.36 from the other that bought the product from your link. It's just money game. Be aware!

Never trust those Pyramid scheme. You are paying the people on top and you get paid from the people below you. When it becomes too much or when the referral system failed, then the whole thing comes apart. Personally, I don't trust any sites that ask you to pay. If they promise you money, why do they need your money? Why not just take it from your earnings?

Don't trust such ponzi schemes they are no doubt scam. Always remember they have to pay you, you don't have to, but if they are asking you to pay then they are no doubt scam.
