There are a lot of scams when you are looking to make extra money, like the stuffing envelopes, and the MLM where you get a chain letter in the mail and has 6 people on the list that you have to send $1 each, then remove the top name and replace with your own name in the sixth position, then mail to 100 people with unrealistic numbers that you make $50,000 by going through all levels. Another one is that autosurf websites. You upgrade with $5, then view as many websites to get paid 15 cents a day until you reach payout. The website is in operation for 9-10 months, then they disappear with your money. You haven't got paid yet. Another one, you join this hyip, then invest $1 and get paid 1000% every day, then expect to get paid and they don't pay you at all. they just took your dollar. then the website disappear after so many months. Who else got scammed from making extra money?

I did. I'm a bit ashamed. I'm usually so careful about these kind of things but I really wanted to make extra money so I tried to join an autosurf site. Besides, this autosurf was in a money-making forum and there were some reports of people getting paid so I joined in. Needless to say, after only 3 days of trying it, the site closed down. It's a good thing that I only invested $5.
