ok, not to bash anybody, but i just read a discussion bascially saying that so and so made about $3500-4000 with one company within a few 3-4 month. I'm smh because I just can't believe anything like this. Could you? I mean really? $3500-4000 in a few month is a lot, working online that is. so if you was offered an online job in which you could make at least $4000 in a few months, would you take it? As for me, no, i'll be to skeptical i still am. what's your view on this?

i can understand where you are coming from. for me, in general i just don't trust making large amounts in a small amount of time mainly online. being that there are so many scams out. either way thank you for sharing!

I'm not skeptical about earning money online because I do it everyday. Having said that, as far as making the big bucks like you mention, it just can't be done so soon and I defy anybody that says it can because they'd have to prove it to me. Not only do I make money online everyday but I don't spend a penny of my own. Now I'm not saying that you can't ever make the big bucks online. I certainly believe you can but it takes time and a lot of other personal qualities that many people simply don't possess.

I'm skeptical when they say you can make a ton of money online I tend to be very skeptical and try to look up as many reviews about the website before joining it, but I mainly stick to doing things online like writing.

I would likely not take the job if it was offered to me. I prefer to be able to talk to my employer face to face, receive a contract and all those other things that ensure a job is legit. As far as online earnings are concerned i'm happy to stick to my smaller scale profits. Birdie -

I wish I could make that much money, but in reality I would be afraid. I would think if anyone could make that money no body would be working outside the home. I do a few things to make money, but I am always looking for a few more ways to make a few bucks. I will be launching an online store early next month, but I still do not expect to make that much. I work on here and involved in a few surveys.

no because more often than not, it generally costs you something somewhere along the line.

I will be skeptical as well.. For people like us, who have spent so much time trying or been earning online, we clearly know that there's no way we are able to earn such good money in just a few months.. If there's so good a deal, then I think there won't be people working full time offline.. Even if one is doing affiliate marketing, it's still not quite possible to earn that kind of money because we are not one of the first few whim started out.. So by time we embark on the journey, our earnings will still be lagging behind for those products would have been marketed before us.. Thus when I see/hear others earning thousands in few months, I wil associate it with scam, or needing to pay upfront before getting started..

To be honest, I'm not skeptical about making money online even if someone around me says that he/she can earn $5000 per month. It is a fact that it is next to impossible for me to earn 1000 dollars per month, but I am sure there are lots of people who can reach this goal easily through their own efforts. In fact, many friends of mine can reach this goal in 15 days. If you plan to make money online with those common methods, it is obvious that you can make 1000 dollars in a few months, but if you can find one way that can't be used by others, then you will find that it is a so easy job to gain big fortunes online. Believe in me, there are lots of people who have made big fortunes online.

My first question would be, Why are they posting on Mylot? If they make that much elsewhere, why are they here, unless it is to scam others. I believe that with some skill and luck you can build a good residual income, but I have not come close yet. You have to be disciplined, and professional about it, I think.

you have a very good point! if i was making thousands every few months i would not be posting on mylot either! i do believe some mylotters are also out to scam others, you're right on that one as well. either way thank you for your comment and your valid points!!

It depends what's the name of the site. And I would believe if you were making it from neobux.

100% skeptical. Even when I already got paid, I still won't let my guard down. There's no reason to do so. I don't have much information about the people behind a website so I really don't know their intentions or reputations. Actually, it surprises me that people would readily trust a website, but do the opposite in the real world. As a rule, I wouldn't trust anybody I've just met making promises about investments or job offers. It will take months of frequent transactions and communications before I'm comfortable trusting the person. Anyway, I find it suspicious if any person or website will demand that we trust them completely. It's a stupid and unrealistic expectation ... unless they have ulterior motives.

No for me, because i can see that it's actully posible. i'm half way there! however it's not one job, because i'm working for myself, i have so many sites that interlocked. all have some kinda relationship with another. for instenace, i have a website that markets my other sites. it basicly sends truffic to my site and i get paid for that. and other sites pay me when truffic lands on their site, and there are sites where i reffir people to, and there are places where i sing-up and get paid. so there are so many ways that i get paid just you have to know what you are doing to get that much money! one day i can sit down at home and do nothing and still get paid. good luck and see you at the top!
