Is this Real?

Hi I found a job on this website called JobPlanet. Its where you can find tons of postings of jobs. Do you girls think its legit? They emailed me back and said there is a small $20 fee to begin and get all the training materials. It sounds good to me and its only $20 but I would really hate to lose $20 if its fake you know. Every penny counts nowadays. Whats your opinion?

  • Never pay for working. There are way too many things out there you can do that don't involved paying in. After all your goal is to make money... What I always recommend is your own home business. It's really quite easy and I found excellent ideas at Try that first.
