Online Part Time Job

Postby midnitesun » Sat, 17 Apr 2010 8:28 pm

Hi,
A friend came across a website on Singapore Nets Job - a part time online jobs paid survey.
Just wish to check if this a scam or is this for real. They say they are paying between $5 - $75.
If you want u need to register and pay a fee of USD25. Anyone has any comments please help.
Thanks

The guy who posted it is for real. Especially if you send him $25 and 2 others bite as well. :roll:

If'n you gotta pay upfront, it's a scam or an mlm.

You can kick start a little job yourself by selling on ebay or something, takes a little time to get well known, but don't lose heart. It will keep you occupied and you can earn a little cash. Always meet with Customer in Singapore because their are quite a few dishonest people check their ratings less than 98% on 100 deals I would be cautious

Hi,please dont believe any,if u dont want to be the next victim!!
Speaking from my own experience, i got cheated twice, one from local,the other from overseas.
Was told to pay for an upfront fee about $25-$60.
From then,your email will be loaded with heaps of survey regularly.But in the end,no cash is being transferred or sent to you in which they had promised!!
All is just a fraud and an empty lies!!
Waste of time,money and effort!!
I didnt made any police report as the upfront fee is just a mere few of dollars, and i dont think its worth it :mad:

But girlzz - that is what they are relying on! They think (and it seems they are usually right) that as it's a few $$ people won't complain when it turns out to be a wrong 'un. Therefore they can carry on with their little scam and rake it in. Needs to be reported and looked into.
