Have you come across the sites that make shocking claims about earning potentials. Beware! Probably they are scams. Just imagine the benefits they promise. Before they pay you these lump sum amounts, first they need to earn it.
I'm sure you have come across outdated listings containing phone numbers, links and email addresses that don’t work? All these are indications of a scam.
