    I also believe it depends on your platform. Many times, I've fallen into the traps of all these sites that promise cash in exchange for getting referrals. Eventually, I'll register, bring in more people (because I actually know a lot of people), and when it's time to get my money, there's nowhere for me to go. These people just use other as publicity avenues and hang them out to dry. To guard against falling into any of these traps, I usually have people log on to those sites for me. That way, I'll be sure that I'm not wasting my time in any way. Also, if a person I trust sends me a link, I'll feel much better about the site. I'm more confident to go on there in that case.

    All of them aren't scams! You have to do your due diligence. So much opportunity online if you put in the work and apply yourself. I've heard many stories about people making it online and yes many are scams, but if you put in the work you'll get out what you put in! Don't give up!

    Scams are domino effect of the experience of people especially when they become victims of it. People are egoistic. They will not rest until they can say to themselves that they were not the only fool who fall for the scammers. And so, they become scammers themselves and multiply the chaos they've experienced.

    I have searched for years for legit writing sites and not many out there. The couple that I have been hired for do not give you enough to make much. Disappointing. I know that I don't have all the skills for the better writing sites so those I have not tried to do. One I was excited about and they ended up rejecting me because they said I plagiarized and I was totally floored. I know I did not. I think they didn't like my style so that was their way of rejecting it. It was disappointing. I haven't looked much since and that was a year ago. :( I mainly blog. It doesn't pay but I get to write what I want. :D

    I think we all knew about scam sites.We can no longer stop this one. But the best thing to do is to be careful searching such sites. Look for the legit one. Check the reviews & opinions of the people about that certain site. You must think well before joining it especially from investing moneys. Give some time to think if it's good or not. Chill. Don' t be too rush.

    It is true that most money making sites, in particular, are scams and users or contributors need to be cautious when getting involved. But again there are sites out there which are truly genuine. In order not to get conned users need to avoid sites which ask for money first before business starts. Well-meaning sites will not ask for money beforehand. In any case, what is the point of giving out money first if the ultimate intention is to get money?

    I agree with you. Most of these sites are scams. I worked in a number of those and never got anything out of them. I especially remember one that I worked for over three days working 6 hours a day to reach the initial cashout target of 150 dollars. I was so disappointed to end up being told to provide 40 referrals to access withdrawals. I must admit that there are a number of sites that are legit and actually pay, but registering and being accepted as a tutor is pretty hard.

    Brod Angel,
    Your information about this scam website are well noted. Do you think the BBB in America, and Scamadviser are a good site to check for a legitimate online website? I do include "scam" on the website when I made a check. Hope I read more on this thread. You are the first I read this guide, on how to look for scam.

    Yes, the internet is choc full of scams/scammers. Sadly not much can be done to get back the lost time and money.

    In my opinion the best method is prevention, see below:
    -Have the most recent antivirus installed on your device(s)..
    -Have the most recent operating system for your device(s)..
    -Type the URL or e-mail address into a search engine and browse what a few people have to say about that particular website or offer..
    -Most web browsers will show a green padlock to the left of the website URL if it trusts the website..
    -Check out the actual website if everything is good so far, try to collect as much info as you can..

    Normally this will be enough to prevent getting caught in a scam; since I began following these steps I haven't suffered from a single scam. I really hope this helps, a lot of great information has been posted in the thread already, follow the advice here and you can't go wrong!

    'Til next time ~~wilnil

    Whilst I agree that majority can indeed be scams actually, there are also some sites that are not scams. You will have to check online in forums as well as surf the internet for reviews from people who have had experience with the site you are interested in. This is the standard procedure to avoid getting burnt. In all whether the reviews are positive or negative, you will still have to use your own discretion and tread carefully. There are fake people on genuine sites and there are also sadly genuine people who become victims of these internet scammers. So caution remains key in your dealings. Never give up, keep grinding and good luck!

    That sucks. I can't relate because I've never had experience with freelance writing before or any sort of job experience in general, but I'm always willing to learn and see if it's right for me so who knows, I might just try. I think it'll help a lot of people out if you warned others about the sites you tested, especially to noobies like me who might be starting off from scratch. I saw someone mention using Fiverrr under your comment before replying and it looks like a trustworthy site to me. I've heard that a lot of people are making some good money there. The site interface looks simple and professional and has credibility. Though this post is pretty late so you've probably already tried it..

    In my opinion, yes there are so many scam website right now in the internet. I didn't experience it already but i hear so many about people that experience it and they complaining. And also everytime i using internet, i read news about it. We can't deny it coz it's obviously true. So before you click or join, make a research first and know if this is legit or not. No to scam and have a happy life.

    The search for a better job has led many people to register their curriculum in services that on the Internet guarantee large incomes and a wide range of jobs.
    In social media groups and on the websites of government institutions, many people have reported false job offers that reach their email. Where the scammers seek to obtain money or personal data of participants.:(

    Seems that like any job it is necessary to do research. Getting feedback from others who have been through working with these sites. Experience is necessary but referrals are appreciated. Kudos to those before us who have endured the legwork. Hopefully you have found success. Thanks again for all the information.

    I can not claim that most sites are a scam. I tried various online jobs such as MLM, Affiliate Marketing, investing in various sites, programs, but none of it lasted a long time or brought me some secure monthly earnings. I can freely say that I have more than 3 years of experience in these online jobs.

    Of course, there are sites that offer money by writing, translating, web designing, and other things. Most of you have certainly heard about these sites, some have tried, and some may even work on those sites. In my opinion, these sites are only legal, because you must literally do some work to get paid, which is not the case with other sites that offer you nothing to do and earn. Some are full-time employees, and some work for some time or on a specific project.

    Even if you choose to join these sites and make money in this way, you have to be very careful. Perhaps the sites are legal, but there are always employers who want to deceive you and, for example, do not pay you for a completed job.

    I have made many attempts to try to work online and have come across almost nothing but scams! A waste of money that I don't have (that is why I am looking for work) and wasting time that I could be spending with my family. All for nothing, it is very frustrating. I hate scams!:thumbsdown:

    I had been into it, I tried any websites that gives lot of cash if you will join them and I joined, I gave a lot of my time and and last it was scam, but I done their jobs and task that they gave to me. But instead of being sad, I made those mistakes as a experience that must not be done again. When I enter a freelance writing and copy writing, I will make sure that it is legit and will pay you with the task that you have done. We all know that there are lot of scammers now a days, they ruin lives, they do not watched the lives of the person they scam. I do not know why they made it, at the end they will suffer with their doings. God bless you scammers.

    The bankers and financiers are badly overplaying their hands, again, and people are starting to catch on to the scam, and real wealth is tangible things produced with tangible effort. Loans made out of thin-air 'money' require no effort and are entirely ephemeral.

    I really don't know how to identify a scam site. That is why I am watching vlogs or reviews from other people before trying it. There were times that I downloaded applications and tried it but I just uninstalled it later on because the instructions were good to be true and it lacks something. I am enjoying earning points and money online for my free time. We better be alert from scam sites so that it will not be a waste of time.
