Online Scams

I was hoping to make some extra money, but instead I got scammed. I know that there are a lot of scams online that claims you can make easy money online. But a lot of them will require you to make a one-time membership payment which they'll give you a 60 day money back guarantee and unlimited support. Never trust those claims, you'll never get your money back and you'll never hear from them after you pay them. So now, I'll just stick to online survey sites and myLot. I'm so lucky to have myLot, not only can I earn extra income but I discovered PTC (Paid to Click) sites from reading the posts. PTC sites are a fun and easy way to make money onlie, and best of all, no investments is required. Aside from making money, myLot is an excellent way to find information on a variety of topics, such as parenting and being a mom.

Hi friend, you are right, we must be very careful with this kind of sites and don't believe their scam promise, we must avoid investing with unknown online sites, it is our safer side

Yes, there are lots and lots of online programs that are scammers. Many times, they start right and are paying. When they get the trust of many people, and lots of them invested big money, then they run away with people's money. However, there are also legitimate programs out there where we can truly make money if we're willing to put time and hard work into it. If we are not familiar with something, and without any research, we better stay put and keep our money in our purse than risk and lose.

I also found this site with a lot of relief after going through pages and pages on search engines trying to steer clear from all the scams out there. I know a main rule is that you should never have to pay anyone to get a job or get rich quick. So if they ask for your credit card number for a membership fee to get to the 'good stuff' in the site...take your money and run!

If you upgrade you get cash if the site don't close or ban you. Most of these type of sites require upgrading which requires payment to get paid:)

Oh you can say that again. Like you, I also was enticed by some quick money-making programs which turned out to be SCAM. I never got my money back and I do consider it a learning curve in my quest to make profit online. I think we all have to undergo these experiences to make us realize that it takes more than just a program for one to really succeed in making profit online. It takes finding your niche in an industry that has a captured market worldwide and building on that niche to your advantage. It's not going to be an easy journey but the process itself is so much rewarding. Best wishes to your internet endeavors.

I think everyone gets that scam feeling .. I have tried the check e-mail thing and got paid once just for checking e-mail and then find out they changed a few things now and you have to check and JOIN the surveys they mention in order to get paid. and that is too much they want to charge, get credit card numbers and so for and I would say do not do them for you do not know what they do your cards..another scam..one is inbox and another is panda..they get ya first time and sound good then bam you stop getting and then they want more..not very many out there stuff that is good to do. small time money but have fun doing it. I have not got paid here yet but will know soon enough waht gives in awhile to see how this goes..hopefully good although it is not alot there is good people here so far..
