I want to tell all - be careful. I just lost 20 $ , And I don't know what to do. I saw the add of this site - it said you earn money buy playing and guessing words, it's real, just for now. I don't normally believe that, but than I went by that link(it was in livejournall post in .ru domain by user animemanjac) and saw how many people thank him and say they got a lot of money. And they will play again and again. They were very believable. So i went to that site and played. They said you won 15$, and registrate so you can take that money. They requested to send them sms so they will send me the code for my registration. I send one, then 2 more times for each step of that false registration. And then, when I couldn't login with the code they sent, I got afraid. And looked the site again saw that there is not a 1 dollar fee for registration, as that massage in livejournall said, but 5$, 10$, 15$... each time i reload the site the number changed and then i saw - there was nearly invisible message in little letters in the bottom that said the money you earn when playing is virtual. I phoned my telephone company quickly, and asked - I just sent 3 sms, how much they cost me? and they said each one cost 6 $. I am very upset. I don't even work. how they can do that? and how i was so careless. Don't let anyone scam you. be careful, when searching job, never send sms. never. Or you can lost a lot of money instead of earning ...

I feel sorry for you and next time be extra careful. Nothing comes for free today we have to earn every single penny with a valid effort.

I'm sorry to hear that. There is no easy money in this world. So be cautious if anyone is trying to tell you you can earn money simply by doing next-to-nothing.

Thanks for letting us all know. I am sorry that they scammed you like that. I learned the hard way too as I believed that if you kept playinng on this site picking six numbers you would win most of the time. and they said it would only cost 3 dollars a month but it would more than pay for itself a lot more blah blah. well the irst month they took out three thentwo weeks took out three so I called myy bank and changed my debit card number but first my bank made them return the three dollars so we were even and also the bank threatened them wih fraud and all of a sudden my bank credited my account with ten dollars I had won and the lottery people h sent it to my old number and the banker knew the situation so he put the funds back in my account.a little while later this lottery co. just disappeared and were charged with ten counts of internet fraud.

This is a shame that you have really been conned by these. There are so many things out there in the world that looks too good to be true and so if it sounds as though it is unbelievable then it probably is, there is always a catch to many things. I have been caught out a few times with the sms messages and so whenever i do something now i always put my landline phone number down instead of my mobile number so that i don't get caught out again. What they charge is absolutely unfair and just so wrong.

I am so sad to hear it! It looks like new method of scamming. These kind of things are always "Too good to be true". People must be careful before falling to these scams. Make a research before trying out any opportunity. Good luck!

be carefull with these comments, the owners actually comment in their own blog and as it has space to comments of course they would just fill it with something that would convince others it's the same with that teeth whitening stuff, there were about 1000 comments in their blog

I am very sorry to hear that you lost that much money online. I have been in the same situation before. I've jumped on something that looked to good to be true without researching it first and ended up losing much more money that you have lost, but one good thing came out of it. I learned a big lesson. Never pay anyone to earn money online, unless you are really sure and have researched the opportunity otherwise you will get scammed. If something looks too good to be true it most likey is. I hope that you use this experience as a learning opportunity and stay away from scamms like that. Good luck!

I am so sorry you had to experience this while they are out scamming people. Where you able to explain to your cell phone company and have them reverse the charge? If not I am sorry and thank you for the awareness, as so many of us are out trying to earn a living and are very susceptible to many scammers.

You should start a blog detailing your experience . Please also provide the link for the site . This will help others in realising that the site is a scam.

You gotta be kidding me! What was the site called? That's terrible.

Sorry to hear it. As you are new in online earning and you believed them 100% reading their offer but you did not know they are scam. You can publish their website and the cell number where you sent SMS and other identity so that other people can caution and someone may take revenge on behalf of you.

Everyday new ways are devised to fool people off their money.The bad part of all these kind of scams is that the people who devised it, laugh it off calling the innocent victims as fools and it was the fool's mistake is what they actually call it. Its really shameful the way they percieve things.

it is always better to inspect the site page clearly and there terms and condition and we must check the site review by searching them for scam in search engine.guess they made fake testimonial to attract visitor.
