http://www.500cents-500dollars.org That site is a paid e-mail site, and I have just found out that it was a scam site. I had well over $700 on that site, and it just deleted my account. I went to finish up more of my emails, and get some more money in it. And I have no account there anymore, and my e-mail isnt in there data base, even though they sent me over 700 emails, and for the past 3 or so months. So my suggestion if you use it now, stop, there is no reason for it. You try to cash out, they would just delete your account.

There are many scams out there and most of them are ones like that one. If they are promising dollars for just reading emails they usually are scams. They are too good to be true. I've had my share of them as well. You see them and hope they aren't but you find out soon enough that if they are promising hundreds or thousands of dollars they are just out to scam you. The legit ones might not pay much but at least they pay.

Well, it is nice to know that you are telling us about this scam sites. This are probably the sites that are not worth working with if that is what they do with their subscriber. Consolence to your loss and I wish that there are more people like you who gives information about scam sites.

I keep posting the same about this scam sites, but I think there will be more people scammed by this sites offering a lot of money for emails, Do not join any site offering more than 1 cent a mail it not possible for any site to afford more then that. I have joined a lot of good ones and they pay but never join the ones promising big money quantities.

I've found most sites that have a cash out of higher than $15-$20 is usually a scam site. If they have over a couple of cents per email. That tends to be a scam site. Go to www.gptboycott.com. They show who's a scam site and who to watch out for.

already apart of that site, thanks though. And I guess some sites are just too good to be true. I know the $20, $100 paid e-mails are scams, but couldnt really tell for that site.

This is a great forum to let people know of legit and scam web sites. Anything that starts 'Dear friends' or 'Yes, friends I made XXX' I try to steer clear.

Well, I am a victim of that site, too. Go to getpaidforum.com to find out sites on black list. The rule of thumb is that any sites paying more than 2 cents a mail are scam ones. Better luck next time.

Oh yes I found out about this one before! I thought jenkies thats a lot of money for doing something so simple! BINGO! Thats the biggest test for a scam. Do they pay you A LOT for doing so little? Then its probably a scam. :( Im sorry you had to find out after spending so much precious time on that!

Anyone reported such sites to the FBI? These scums (owners of such sites) deserve nothing but to be prosecuted and give us the money they supposedly owe. Its just sad that there are so many of these sides online and they totally give the ones that are actually legit a bad name.
