Now a days we are getting many paying sites coming on the net and they are getting members by giving lucrative schemes and paying for one or two times. After getting pretty good amount of work done from these members, without paying anything further to many of the members thry are vanishing from the internet. I faced such situation with two sites within this week! I was bit frustrated initially, but now I think these things will keep on going as a part and parcel of internet! I don't want to mention the names of the sites as it may be unethical.But then in order to give a word of caution I am posting this discussion! Have you ever faced any scams on internet, Plaese give the details! Thanks !

Yes, Ive fallen prey to internet scam plent of times. Let me first tell you that I've been scammed by stocks, MLM business companies, work at home jobs, and ebay goods. Knowing that my finances need to be better, nowadays I tend to avoid such scams. After being introduced to one, I quickly research it and see if there are negative ratings for it. The stock scam I had was for a gold company that didn't disclose properly to the SEC and eventually was shut down. The MLM business was for a profit sharing group that shut its doors two weeks into my membership. Lastly, the internet scam that fooled me hard was on ebay, where a product was labeled but the contents were different. Oh how I wish I read the description of the Ebay article more properly.
