Hi everyone.. I'm really feeling down this time.. I signed up in a paid to write site.. When I reach the minimum payout, they terminated me saying that I'm always late in submitting my work which is not true because I always do my assigned tasks on time.. they didn't give my money.. I felt so betrayed.. All along, I believed that the site is really paying.. gosh.. I made great effort and so much time doing assignments which I will not be paid of.. Have you experienced signing up for writers.ph? I really hate them.. I was hoping that I will receive my pay out to pay for something.. I really wanna cry.. I need that money badly.. How could I ever cheer up.. Please help me.. I need to earn enough money until 1st week of May.. thanks..

I'm sorry you're feeling down. I know exactly what you're going through. I'm six months pregnant with my second child and I don't have a job. I've been searching online everyday for jobs to make money. I know how it feels when you really need money, or when you work hard and don't get paid for your work. I don't know if this will be of any help but there is this site that I just recently joined. It seems legitament. It has writting jobs and data entry jobs available. The name of the site is www.odesk.com . I hope this site can help both of us earn some money.

Seems like you have been scammed for the first time, eh? You see, you really can't help it when you get scammed and all of your effort goes in vain..You feel like killing those *beep* but you can't do anything..as for me..all I do is vent out my frustration at something..I punch, I kick, I let the anger go out in some way or the other..and when I am back to normal I find some other website and start again..lol..there's nothing to be depressed about..just think you didn't have it in your luck and move on..when you get paid by some other website you feel really good..!:D You must check about the website periodically on the internet whether they are paying or not before going for it. Cheers !!

That hurts. How much is the minimum payout though? Have you tried Associatedpress.com? My roommate got paid there twice so I'm confident that they're gonna pay you also. Try it raynejasper, and for sure better opportunities will come your way. Also try helium.com!

Why don't people learn that most (if not all) of these sites are just scams who will RIP YOU OFF! I'm sorry that you were a victim, but not surprised. There are very few genuine online work programs and many scam sites.

I know how you must be feeling at this moment.same was the case with me. but lately the site paid me. i am always worried to work as we give so much time and effort and if we are not paid then it leads to fake impression of all other sites, some sites are like that and i hate them. so i just stick to mylot as i found mylot too genuine in the case of earnings. dont worry dear just be alert and work only for site which have paid for you. happy mylotting.

Hi Raynejasper, I am sorry that you can't get your money back. Samething happens to me yesterday. I just found out that destorydebt stop paying their memebers start from 4/10, and the min. payout is 3 USD. So i lost my money. Right now, you need to cheer up and try some other things, like join mylot more offen and keep this site clean. You should told us the name of the website that you join to warn people. I think there is a discussion somewhere is collecting the scam website, that will help the newbie got into the same situation like you. Take care and good luck!

That's sad it sounds like you got scammed. Try reviewstream, they are pretty good. They will pay. I had a disappointment with a writing site as well. Even though the customers almost always accepted my work, they rated me as too low to continue with them. It did not make me very happy, but I will be able to continue with other sites.
