If it makes you feel any better... you are not the only one being scammed! I lost hundreds and hundreds of dollars with affiliating programs, data entry, surveytaking and whatsoever. Still hoping to FINALLY find something that is good and honest. I ran into this site that has all the rip off's reported by peoples who have been ripped off. I forgot the complete name, but its is something with ... ripoffreport... Makes you loud and clear what a fool you are... I instantly deleted a few sites I had subscribed to ;-)) Oh well, as we say.... "it's only money" of "having your house on fire is worse"... But you are so right, a lot of the free sites to join are not for us Europeans. I started a discussion on that: "Do Europeans not count?" Personally I think it is shortsighted to leave a whole continent with quite some florishing sconomies out, but hey, who am I, huh?

I agree with you. We are the forgotten continent! Maybe they think we all have too much money and don't need "work from home" - LOL!

I think HYIP is not a scam. Its really a hit and run type of investment. I had a lot of friends earn a lot especially on the 12dailypro and studiotraffic. HYIP scripts are meant to continue unless no more investments coming from "investors".

I paid for a survey membership that was a scam too! I bought from a working moms club. It was almost a year ago and I can't remember the exact name. Since than I have found a free site giving people the scoop on bad surveys sites and a ton of free programs to make money with online. The information is on my profile.

Never pay anything to a site for the privilege of just participating. All these sites do is collect the "initiation" fees and distribute a sliver to the incoming fools like yourself who pay these people. Just join legitimate free sites like Mylot or WritingUp.com which actually enable you to make money through your own efforts, expertise and creativity. Judging by the poor condition of your post, you lack in all three aforementioned areas. Get real and get knowledge about the world around you instead of obsessing about scams. Then you can start carving out a successful niche.

The girl is trying to be helpful. Don't you think your rudeness is a little unnecessary? She wasn't "obsessing", just making her point, and, as for the English, for all you know, English may not be her first language. You may have expertise, and creativity in bucketloads, but you sure don't have any manners.

Radicalpatriot, that is no way to treat a fellow forum member. And nothing lasts forever, mylot may be here for now, but nobody knows if it will still be around even half a year down the road. All of us learn from experience. I've been making money online since 2003 and so I should know what I'm saying.

I've recently found a way to make money. I help people by completing referral offers and they pay me for it. If you are interested, email me for details as I don't want to get in trouble by placing a link here. My email is carlennj@comcast.net make the subject 'Info'. I have made from $5 to $40 for a single offer and I've been paid immediately to my paypal account. Good luck to all!

I was a victim for many scam sites, but the big scam site, and the most famous one is 12DailyPro. I discover that you need to know when to quit. Auto-surf is an easy money, and you don't need to work hard for it. Just spend a big amount of money, and you can earn a lot. Then you can quit, and never return, because who knows when the site will become a scam site? myLot is the safier site ever, and there is no need to be afraid it will become scam. I love myLot, and they pay.

First of all, don't try to spend any money yourself unless you are very confident in the legitimacy of the company. Also, try not to touch HYIPs, because virtually all of them turn out to be scams.

i just realized that i got scammed. it was by www.giveortakeinfo.com. but the last time i checked, that website is no longer existing. i got attracted to it because of the easy money. they give you pdf files that you need to translate to ms word. the files are novels and they said they will pay you $1/page. they also said they will send you a minimum of 400 pages a month. so that's a minimum of $400/month income. i paid the $69 fee and did the assignment given me. i submitted it on time. after following up for days, i haven't heard from them anymore. i didn't go out for days just to finish typing a 444-page novel and submit it on time. it was really stupid of me cuz i gave them money without doing research about them. i just found a discussion about them at www.scam.com and other sites with people telling they got scammed by the same people. my advice to you is, before joining any online programs, do some research first. especially if they ask you to pay a fee. i learned my lesson the hard way.

There are loads of them. Infact i would say 99% of the make money online programs are scams and don't pay. Its just a few like mylot that actually pay even though they pay less. The key to it all is to find a real job.

I dont have any detailed website name, but I always bear in mind that, Its always okay to start on something free and get even a small amount out of it, compared to something they say you'll earn BIG but will ask for registration fee that you will regret after... have a nice day!
@ryanwelsh (167)

An easy way to avoid scams is...nothing is free remember even free samples..its all about phsychology anything thats written down and looks official people beleive. Don't pay for anything online unless its from a trusted and well known site, and never listen to ''earn upto $60,000 per day'' its all nonsence

The situation is such that the space may not be sufficient to post the SCAM SITES. Hence it is better to shout loudly with all your energy whenever you receive money from any site.Don't forget to shout the site name and you will not get many opportunities to shout. You may not be aware of it in the long term,but certainly you will receive many good wishes.

They are so many scam sites out there that you can’t trust anyone, even those they paid before suddenly can turn to a scam. So the best thing never enjoy sites they ask give to them money. After all if you lose your time is OK but if you lose your money……..
