There are people being sucked into scam sites each and every day and obviously people who have been scammed are going to be very vocal in sharing that fact, to warn the masses. Yet, there is only so many problems that can solved, when someone does not do even the most simple of Google searches to find out if the website is a scam or not. To find proofs that it pays or does not pay. Yet, people do not even do that, rather they invest their valuables time and money. Of course many websites are legit for a time but become scams, but for the most part, some research will be able to save you from the majority of scams. Google is your friend.

Knowledge can be very useful. Yet it is rather difficult to acquire knowledge without looking into things. Most people really tend to limit the amount of knowledge that they obtain by not researching everything properly. Which is a shame for them to say the least. It is quite unfortunate indeed. Thanks for responding. Its appreciated. Have a nice day.

And just an added note: You should always check for any early scam symptoms of the sites you've signed up with from time to time. The site may not be a scam yet when you first joined but who knows whether they're slowly turning to scam?

Very true. Some sites start legit and may very well intend to be legit. Until the moment that it starts threatening the bottom line that is and when they start losing money. Then payments start getting fewer and further between and then who knows. If there is some math that is not adding up right, then there might just be a bit of a problem. Thanks for responding. Its appreciated. Have a nice day.

I think sometimes that we just see the pretty picture that is painted for us. Before you know it, we are a victim of somebody's elaborate scam. i agree that we need to research things before giving our heart and soul to them.

Yes you are smart. I always check out a site that offers you good pay and promise to make you rich.Most of the times i find out that they are just after membership fees or doesn't pay at all or just hackers who just wants to know your personal details. But thanks to internet, the same medium that these scammers are using.It is supplying us with enough information and also all of us should do our own thing in helping other people by posting feedbacks abou good or bad sites.

Just being after membership fees, sadly the truth one hundred percent of the time. I mean, how many websites have been out that pull, we'll pay you, but only after you upgrade or invest [X] within us”. To me that is rather sketchy to say the very least. We can do our best indeed by supplying the information and getting the word out there, if we are unfortunate enough to run across any scams. Thanks for responding. Its appreciated. Have a nice day.
