If you come across such ads on a website, do you tend to believe what you read? Well, I did come across such an ad today in one of a site forum (see below) and the first thing that came into my mind was "another scam". "[b]Referrals Contest: Refer 300 Active Referrals and get $1000 Instantly Into Your Alertpay/Paypal Account Instantly! contest starts on:05 May 2011 Add Fund Contest: add fund and the the top members who invest maximum fund in account will have been announced as a winner. 1st Prize:$1000 into his/her Alertpay/paypal Account. 2nd Prize:$500 into his/her Alertpay/Paypal Account. 3rd Prize:$100+1 month Link Advertise on our Site. contest starts on:05 May 2011 winner will have been announced on 1st june 2011.[/b]" Some users seem so happy with the contest. I really don't understand these people. How can they fall for such a thing? Do they really think that the Admin of that site will really pay the winner $1000? Please share your views on this. What have you got to say about this?

FOR ME. tHATS A BIG SCAM. i At first when i try to earn online, they made me believe that its legit. at last i need to get the prize but they didnt give me a cent. Thats why be aware. See the price. If the price is so big, dont believe. They just want their site to be promoted and earn much by making foolishness. Try to search the web if its truelly legit or not.

Yes, jhayj. It is wise to check first before making fools of ourselves. But some people just don't want to take the trouble to check them out first, which is foolish. And in the end, they get cheated and start complaining.

I don't really believe on this offer. Imagine 1, 000 $ ? Oh so, this is a big amount of money you know men. And then instantly you will get this after referring 300 members? Amazing if so.

Yea, who wouldn't want that. To believe it is impossible. But there are still some who would believe it. Why don't they realize that it's a scam?

I think it 's 100 % scam site. Promised too tempting prize, while his condition is very easy! just look for 300 referrals. Meaningful gift for a referral of $ 10. It was fantastic, while other sites only give an average commission of $ 1 / referrals. So, I suggest leaving the bid. Or you will waste time and energy

Agreed. This one sounds too good to be true. $1 per referral, 300 referrals means $300. But this one wants to pay $1000. Really too good to be true.

Yea, I feel for them too. But they should have checked first before investing any money into any sites. Hopefully they will learn from their mistakes. The sad thing is that the scammers will get away with it.

I am sure there will be people who choose to believe despite all common sense. When the time comes and they have really referred 300 people, they may still not get the prize because the word is "300 Active ...". Now whose measurement of Active are they using? I am like you. Skeptical and more sensible. Cheers!

I know, 300 active members is alot to consider. But the add fund contest is very obvious, don't you think? Who would be so stupid enough to add fund into that site, and for what?

No I won't believe it. It must be a waste of time for those who do that.

I agree. It's just a waste of time and effort. $1,000 for the winner ... who's going to believe that? I wish those people would wake up soon.
