There are many sites out there which promise e-mails worth the likes of 5 , 50 or 100 dollars and upwards. Do not join any of this sites. This are ridiculous attemptsto take your moneyand you will never see a penny. Exceptions are so called " Redemption Only" sites where you can redeem your money for advertising only. Check the advertising priceto see if sites selling ads underprice. If for example, the site has 100 membersand an e-mail to all costs only $2 for a $10 link, you can clearly see thatthe site is underselling advertising , 100 members x $10 per member=$ 1,000. Therefore, the actual costthe advertisementwithout taking into account the referral commision, comes to $1,000. If a site sells this link for only $2, the site is sustaining a loss of $988 per advertisement sold. This is only an example, but please note that there are sites selling $10, $20 and even links worth hundreds of dollars for just $2-$3. Basic Mathematical skills will show you that such sites aretotally unsustainable and therefore shortlived.
