    Most are scams. All that require you to pay them money up front to get paid to do anything is a scam. For more information, you can check out the following website put up by the Federal Government: http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2000/10/topten.shtm


    According to the Federal Trade Commission and the owner of the site listed above, the following are the top 10 scams on line:


    Internet Auction Fraud
    Internet Service Provider Scams
    Internet Web Site Design/Promotions - Web Cramming
    Internet Information and Adult Services - Credit Card Cramming
    Multi-level Marketing/Pyramid Scams
    Business Opportunities and Work-At-Home Scams
    Investment Schemes and Get-Rich-Quick Scams
    Travel/Vacation Fraud
    Telephone/Pay-Per-Call Solicitation Frauds (including modem dialers and videotext)
    Health Care Frauds

    NICE ANS. MAYBE YOU WONT HURT ANYBODIES FEELINGS WITH THAT ONE

    In one word YES......

    You can also go to Scam Buster's website: www.scambusters.org/backissues.html or this one, www.scamsonline.com - but I still like the Federal Trade Commission's site as a starting point.

    Thanks bluedeath for your very helpful information & the sites you gave me.Iwant be able to use the Federal Trade Commission as I live in Australia But the scam sites will com in handy Thanks Sherrie.

    You can still use the FTC site because it is full of great information that would cover you too. It is a general clearing house for information.

    You are welcome. Good luck and play safe on-line and off. Nice talking to you, but your standing upside down! LOL ;-) Goodnight. Time for bed.

    Yeh funny good night signing off Sherrie

    I can't say either it is a scam or legit. Because i haven't use it before. But i know the simple way to find whether the site is legit or not. You can find whether the site is trustable or not by contacting the owner of that website directly. You need to know his address or phone number to do so. To know the address or phone number of the owner of the website visit the site http://www.whoisxy.com/ . Evey one should provide their original address and phone number while registering their domain name. On seeing the details itself you can identify whether it is original or flake. If it is flake don't buy products further there.
