Someone asked my alertpay account to give me 1 dollar? There is one person who I chat with and who also join and participate in PTc sites, He introduce me in LEVELINVEST.COM, he gave me a link so that I can sign up..but i did not sign up, ask him so many question about the site and he told me in levelinvest.com you are going to invest 1.10 dollars to earn...he said that he and his friends have been paid by the site The fact that I will invest money I really did not trust the site it might be scam. He ask me if my alertpay account has a money for me to start on levelinvest.com, i told him I dont have a money on my account..he then offer to give me 1 dollar inorder to start in levelinvest..he ask my email address for alertpay, I was really hesitant to give my private details so I ask him why will he give me a dollar..he told me so that I can join immediately. But he ask also my PIN. The question is why did he ask my alertpay account? Is it safe to give your email account in alertpay. thanks..looking forward to your feedback fellow mylotters... I need your view in this..

Definitely I will not give my alertpay account name if he asks my PIN (You meant password?). As a rule I don't give my account name to individuals. Only to businesses.

I was astounded when reading this! There is absolutely NO reason why you should give your Alertpay PIN number to anyone! You will need to use your pin number when YOU send money. If someone wants to send money to you then all they need is your Alertpay email address. If someone asked me for my pin number I would never trust that person and I would also inform others to be wary of them too. Unfortunately we hear so much talk of sites scamming people but among us, where we would least expect to find them, there are also PEOPLE TRYING TO SCAM US! This is so sad and I hope you will beware. Happy posting!

Giving your alert pay address must be ok. Not the password. Never give him that. With your account ID, he can only send money but never withdraw anything from it.

Never give your pin out. To me it sounds like a scam. If it wasnt a scam why would he ask for your pin number. I have had my paypal hacked into and it was a nightmare. So don ever give your pin to anyone, because you are only inviting trouble.

Giving your alert pay mail to some of your friends is not a big problem. If that friend likes to give you a bonus for joining as his down line, there is no harm. This way people are used to promote their membership. But you are not supposed to give the pin number or password on any cost.

As far as my knowledge is concerned there is nothing wrong in providing your alertpay or paypal email id. We frequently do it when we sign up for any site to earn some bucks online. But, we should not disclose our password or pin. There are a lot of software available to find out the password of a mail. If your friend is asking you for the PIN too, just avoid him. Rather you can ask for his alertpay mail id along with his password so that you can transfer one buck out of his account to yours. These types of fraudstars should not be trusted. Just stop communicating him and utilize that time in productive work at mylot or some other sites. You will atleast earn something without much headache.

He may very well mean well but the fact that he is asking for your pin seems fishy. I would definitely not give him the information and decline the offer, unless he can prove to you that he is also getting paid. In which at that time, you tell him that you will earn the dollar to put in your alertpay account and that you appreciate the offer.

I am not sure if it is safe.Its hard to trust here in the internet.There are alot of scammers.I was just wondering if he is going to send you money on your alertpay account, why he would asked your PIN?Sounds suspicious or maybe not.

Don't give your alertpay account. i personally don't want to try no more risks that involves money. There are too many scam websites and people on the net and we should be carefful not to deal with them.

Hi dorothy09. I had to look thru some of the replies to see if you mentioned anything else about the PIN number before responding to you. I notice you mentioned that your chat friend asked only if you remembered your PIN, not that they wanted you to give them your pin. In todays world, we have to be very careful about giving out our financial information and online accounts are no different. From what I understand from your discussion, is that your chat friend wants to pay your way into levelinvest. In order for him to send you the money, he only needs your email address, which is also your account name. PayPal works the same way, you are just sending money to an email address as registered on your processors site. With AlertPay, you have to enter a PIN number that you selected in order to send money. Your friend was probably just trying to make sure that you had the information for the next step after he sent you the money. DO NOT share the PIN number, but if you want to accept his offer, just tell him, yes you remember and give him your email address. Important: Depending on which account level you have selected at AlertPay, there may be fees deducted from the money he sends you. I tried sending a friend a $1 AlertPay payment (actually it was just $0.97) but when it got to his account, there was only $0.47 left. According to what AP told him, he had not selected an account level and was charged extra.
