Many websites claim that you're going to get par a high price if you join then or pay a membership fee for a lifetime. They will show you charts with different details on how you are going to earn, of course if you are in their site you will be able to see pictures of people with their testimonials about that site. Most of those websites are just waste of time. But let us know the simple details on how to know if the site is elite or legit. 1. Firs thing, you should have an internet connection.hehehe. Always use Mr. Google to check on the site, type in the name of the site and look for its reviews over the years. Don't forget to read comments from people too. 2. Verify that the website has a lock (picture) in the bottom, if it does, it is more likely a trusted site. 3. Never join a program or pay for a program offered if the site has a lot of graphic, pictures, and with little texts on their site. Usually that is a sign of a scam because they will not tell you on how you are going to make money. Always look for information on that site that will help you understand (faq) how to make money. 4. Only look for websites that gives you a lot of information about their program, how many years it has been running, the name of the site owner, address, lastly check if you are going to benefit from it. 5. Do not forget to check if the site has teaching methods and actual proofs on what is needed to do. Happy mylotting!

the internet is full of opportunities to make money and earned a passive income.with these great opportunities, there also come to risk of scams.Way back before I started this site, I have already been searching for ways to make money on the internet. I even tried enrolling in make easy money programs online only to find out it was a scam. But I have no regrets because through my years of experience, I have grown and is now more cautious in investing online.

This is all very good information, especially for those who are just starting out or who have had many bad experiences. It also pays to remember that nothing is guaranteed. Even the best of sites can run into problems where they start out legit but then have to close or be seen as scams. You have to constantly stay alert to what is going on in the programs you are in.
