Ok this is my last experience with making money online websites. A while ago i gaved my e-mail adress to a website with a great name " Real translators jobs " or something like this ...they claim they need a lot of workers but as soon as you sign up you will see it is just another waste of time and you need to pay them first to " upgrade " your membership and then they will send you the offers that will make you rich.So i said ok i won`t do that, i just gaved up. Yesterday i received an e-mail from them, telling me they have tons of clients,so they need me.I went there again even if i knew what will happen...i clicked once and then they asked me again to pay 28 dollars if i want a job...i wanted to close the window but then they told me they have a special offer for me ...i can have a job with only 14 dollars if i pay right away :) Just another bad experience.Be careful and never pay these scammers even if they promise you that you`ll make thousands each month .If you can find a real job on internet they will never ask you to pay anything to "upgrade your membership".If they have "tons of costumers" they will hire you anyway :)

Ok I have experience the same things as you have described. Any boy does it drive me nuts. However, there really are different sites that you can write for. The problem is finding them. Now, I am signed up for different kinds of sites that I write for. One type of site I write for is with Triond, and expert column. Now rather or not you know about these sites, they do not pay much. However, eventually, and I do mean like maybe years later eventually, writers for these sites can earn a good bite of money. Like in the hundreds. The more articles, the more views, and that means the more money. Now another type of site I write for and have found to be a big success and pays upfront anywhere from 1-15 dollars is Text broker. This is an easy to sign up for. You fill out some info, submit an article that will rate you on a scale from 1-5. Five being the best. The rating will determine your pay or the amount of articles available. I have actually signed up twice. The first time, I was rated as a 3 and there were not many writing job. Then I re-signed back up and got a rating of 4. So now, if there is a drought in the 3 rating articles. I use the other one. The only thing you do is sign up, fill out a form and mail it in, and start earning money. You can even start earning before you fill out the form to get paid. The form is located in I believe the payment tab. Quality and grammar is important. Also one other thing to know is that you do not submit articles already written, you write for clients, so what they want is what you write about. However, the topics you write about will vary. I love text broker the best. However, other sites that only earn a few dollars are still very useful when you got several, writings that are building up on your desktop. lol If you would like, I can give you a few articles that may be useful. Just let me know.

If they are really in need of people to fill out these so-called "jobs", they wouldn't ask for money at all since they should be paid by the "employers" and not the employees. Same thing when you're applying for a work outside your country. You're not supposed to pay the agency who is recruiting you for work outside your country since they were paid for by the overseas company to hire you.

I`m laughing every time i find such offers on internet.Sure it costs me some time to join all these crappy websites but then when i see how desperate they are trying to steal some money from me i am having fun.Yesterday i joined another one ( forgot the name but it should be in my e-mail adress.)They said they have a lot of work from data entry to surveys,e-mail answering etc.After i joined i readed there that as a standard member i can only do one thing to win money and that is to bring more people to join.I will be paid 25 cents for every fool i find to join that website.Once i have 20 or 25 that will be enough to pay for my upgrade and then i will have access to the real jobs .Isn`t that funny ? Can you believe there are people promoting that crap ?

I am glad to hear you are informed enough to know their 'game' Someone who didn't know these tricks could be fooled especially when they reduce the amount from 28 to 14 dollars. I really become annoyed with these type of scams. They try to take advantage of vulnerable people out of their own greed. Congrats to you that you didn't fall for it and good for you for sharing this. Perhaps it will help others who might not have known about these con artists.

I know enough about these scams to protect myself so i won`t fail that easy on any scam.I`m thinking to start my own blog where to write about legit websites and scams but i am a slow writer and that will take some time. Today i joined another website, one that promised real jobs,"we have a lot of work to be done so we need you today ".Once you join you`ll find out that the only way you will make some money as a standard member is to bring more people to join the scam and they will pay you .15 or .25 (i don`t remember now).When you make enough money you will be upgraded and start getting those dream jobs :) So they will turn you into a scammer too , you will have to tell others what a great website you`ve found and they will have to join there to find out that they have to bring more people to make some cash. I told them to cancel my account because i don`t work for scammers and i also told them i will warn all my friends about their scam.
