I've seen so many post from other referrals...I only post on this site as I know this site does pay. However, I've seen so many other sites that people post and always using themselves as a referral... Now my question to you is, How do you go about making sure with all these different sites are legit? Do you try them out for the time being and see what happens when it's time to pay or do you ask around? I'm curious, and I admit sometimes tempted, however, I fall back because the last thing I want to do is waste time on a site that is either a scam or useless... Please share your thoughts....

I am a member of a lot of sites. Some of them I have points, credits or whatever they call them. Some of those sites like Inbox Dollars, I have gotten checks from. Sites like MyPoints and ClubMOM I have never gotten any payment from. Legit sites are usually easy to find but actually getting paid is hard. LOL It sometimes is a matter of trust and trying new things. I don't know for sure if I am wasting my time here. I think it is worth the chance.

I belong to an amazing team of internet marketers..From people with 26 years in internet marketing to newbies that don't know what to do. We help each other to make money and we promote 3 businesses. The reason why I went with this team is because they check the businesses out before they tell the team about the business.. Alot of people think that one of my business is a scam but its not.. In order for it to be a scam you don't offer anything that the people can use for that business. And all my businesses they offer things that will help you with that business.. You need to have a product, you need to have that product to be duplicatable, you need to have patience because these businesses are not a get rich business that make you money over night. You need to work at your business like a business. If you don't then you wont get anywhere with it..We have over 3,000 members on our team. We have weekly meetings. Online live support 24/7. You need to be avaiable for your team mates. We support everyone on our team.

No I don't believe them even if they show me proof. You must do your due diligence, especially if they are requesting up front money. There are so many ways to check these sites out before signing up. There are a lot of sites now that have scam list check those first. Then check around on similar sites or foruns and see what others are saying. If it is something that really appeals to you and doesn't cost a lot go ahead and join it may be the right one for you.

yes,i believe a lot of website are springing up in other to also benefifts from internet wealth but one thing that i believe in is that fraudulent websites will continue to spring up,so in other forv one not to be a victim its advisable that interested persons in any of the programs should see payments track records of the copmpany before joining.

I've only ever tried out the sites that were free because like you, I had a fear of being scammed. Personally I know of four sites that have actually paid me. As for the people who start a discussion with their referral link right in the starter, I believe that's going against the guidelines and should be reported. I'm pretty sure that you're allowed to throw in your referral link to a discussion if it relates to the discussion, but you cannot start something with your referral link or put it in a thread that is discussing something totally different.

Oh, really..I didnt even know you couldn't do that..I never have but boy don't I see ALOT of people who post referrals..It's pretty interesting how people say try this, however they don't know much about it and trying to get others to join. That's the part that gets me, not only are you iffy about the site, iffy about the person who post it being you dont know them. BUT, there are some people that will try it...

I do my research first on the website and read around online. You can find so much information online about anything so research is a great way to find out if it is a scam or not. If I think it is worth putting time into, I will. It doesn't always work out the way I hoped it does but that was a sure way to find out.

I find you must explore each site with a fine-tooth comb. Don't sign anything until you are sure you understand the terms. I had registered at a site that loves my articles, gave me Expert Author status and such - but they don't pay for my articles and neither do the persons using them. The is called EArticles and is a waste of time if you need cash. The way I see it, it is my responsibility to know what I am getting myself into. So many sites give half-truths, or make things sound much better than they are. Until web-users become tough and knowledgeable, there will always be cheat sites. I NEVER pay before I know. I learned this the hard way. Read the TOS thoroughly!! If you aren't sure, ask someone.

I do alot of research into them before I decide to sign up. I do a few of the read emails, and I belong to my points, creation rewards. I also belong to two others I work really hard at. I have made money with them. If you would like to know what they are let me know through email. One is reading emails but I own part of the company, and the other is watching a video and answering questions afterwards. Really easy. You do have to becareful because alot of those sites are rip offs. I have never had a problem with the ones I belong to.

I sometimes ask around and sometimes I just take the plunge and give the site a try if I see lots of people referring it. However that is how I got burned with Payposter and Paid lots. It looked like a good site at first then it just went belly up

I have heard from my friends that most of this sites are fake,and i believe its true.Even they said about mylot also.Every such type of sites claim that they pay for what we do for them.But we cant trust them becouse we dont have any proof about paying.If person who is posting you referral,is acquinted with you very well then you can believe in site that it pay.Most of the time strangers post us referral,they might be the agent of that site's organizers.
