Get Paid To Surf The Web

 

Beware of the Latest Work From Home Scam: Get Paid To Surf The Web

You are increasingly coming across ads promoting amazing money-making opportunities just by surfing the internet. Given examples of people who are making thousands of dollars a month, you get interested in joining. All that is required, they say, is to surf specific websites and you will get paid or get points (credits) which you can redeem for cash. Exciting, right? Nope.

It sounds a bit fishy, but they explain that they are making money from the advertising posted on the websites you are surfing – the advertisers pay them every time the website gets a hit.

You can see the logic behind this. Best of all, most of these money-making temptation proposals come with an autosurf option – so all you have to do is register and keep your computer open at all times, making money while you sleep. It sounds like easy money, right?

That's exactly what it is, but not for you – just for the scammers, as they charge you a registration fee but never pay you a cent. If any of this were really true, why would anyone ever work?
