Does anyone know if this is a scam?

Found this offer online last night, to post links for companies such as GOOGLE from your home computer and get paid GOOD for it. It was a trial offer which you would pay 49.95 and they would set u up and if within 2 months if u didn't like it you would get a refund. Now 49.95 isn't a lot to lose if this is for real. But, also if what they are proposing is true than everyone should quit their job and just do this right?

  • Yes, scam. You don't want to allow access to your computer to any funny companies . . . .they could be base in Nigeria with a "Majic Jack" that has a Florida area code.

  • SCAM! Never ever take something that requires you to PAY. THe only one making money is the one taking your cash.

  • I agree. Almost everyone asking for money in advance is scamming.

  • Scam, anytime they want money up front its a scam.

  • It definately sounds like a scam. I have learned that if you have to pay money up front and it is not for a product then it is a scam.

  • You should never have to pay just to find out information. That sounds like a scam to me. I work from home and I love it!
