Ads/E-mail Processing Job

How the scam works:

Not happy with your current job, you continually come across testimonials online, such as: “I get paid to post links on Google” or “Stay at home mom earns $500 a day”. 

Researching these links, you eventually find a website that promises you will make $2,000 by posting ads online and, if done properly, you could quit your 9-5 job and make money from the “comfort of your own home”.

Exciting news! Posting ads and processing e-mails, basically responding to people who are interested in the ads, you are promised $20 per e-mail. Sounds good, right? Doing the math, you see that if you respond to 50 emails per day you could be a millionaire next year.

However, to get the ball rolling you have to register in their program and pay a one-time fee, of $25 or so, which seems small compared to what you estimate you will be earning. The trouble is, it’s a scam.

How to avoid:

Don’t even consider doing this - you will pay the money but never get paid. If you’re lucky enough to have a job, hang on to it until you find another one. Always do your research and work only for legitimate employers. If you are really into earning money through online sources, below there are some recommandations.
