Are data entry from home programs scams?

December 2, 2009 4:54am CST
Are work from home data entry programs scams? This is a question asked by thousands of people who are looking to join data entry work at home. The problem arises because ordinary internet users fail to distinguish between traditional data entry and online pay per click marketing data entry programs. Most of the online data entry programs explicitly tell on their sale pages that the data entry opportunity is about ad word compaigns. The subscription cost of these data entry at home programs is $49 approximately. So friends what is your opinion about these data entry programs?

To tell you honestly all of them are total scams. they are too good to be true and some of them requires you to buy there guide or pay for membership fee. Don't join any sites that requires payment because they will just get money out from you.

Wrong ! You are really not right junmae because all data entry sites are not scam. There have some legit data entry site. In my profile website there has a data entry site where your job is to retype the picture content into the input field. They will pay you daily through webmoney.

I think most of them are scam and when they ask for money they do not have a job for you. They will just give you a subscription on how to make money by doing data entry jobs. Most of the companies are not looking to hire anyone.

I often see this kind of sites or from E-mail box. Sometimes you have to bid for the chance if it is free sites. It is not easy to get many chances. I do not notice this kind of sites now.

Hello youthicon this is checkmail and me too would suggest not to follow such scams.Yeah i have tried data entry programs thrice online and once offline.Well the online data entry programs were free and after completion of the given target got scammed.And the offline data entry program which was an paid one, cheated me in mine accuracy, and even paid me less than what i have paid for, that too after 6 long months.So naturally i won't try to go by it.But yes could give in a shot at the paid data entry programs online, never ever tried, must have enough cash to lose some.But once again beware of it.

Don't ever invest anything in data-entry because they are just scam..i was already scammed by an indian website already..their site looks so professional and you can even talk to their costumer service hotline as they say but all are just fake. i paid for that job because i was so with their high-paying rate but the end i just gave away my be careful. there are a lot of data-entry jobs that don't require for any registration free instead they require for your qualifications if you can do the can also try pixprofit. it is capatcha encoding but of course you won't get rich by that program.but if you have patience and fast in typing then you can immediately cashout the minimum payout which is $3.. goodluck to you..

Hey I never find these data entry sites to be authentic.They generally are scams and when they ask you to pay an initial subscription its better to stay away from them.I dont mind wasting some of my time,but loosing some of my hard earned money will be a setback.
