Scams are becoming a part of everyday life sadly one has to be more careful than ever to stay away from fishy sites and deals

I got scammed on ebay. It's sad when people scam you. I hope this site is legit, I'm getting close to a thousand points. At least not everyone in the world is a scammer.

Celia, after being on this sit for more than a year and a half, I can honestly say it definately is not a scam!

Scammers are scumbags. They have no shame. It looks like they don't also have a conscience. They prey on the vulnerable.

Someone tried to scam my grandmother by calling her and saying they were her grandson. They tried to get her to wire money too them in another country. Thankfully she didn't fall for it!

Ive been badly scammed in the past by people using the website olx and have heard of many cases of fraudsters advertising items and never delivering

Speaking of scams, there's a new site that allows the user to join for free and allows them to do multiple tasks with a promising 1,500$ weekly. They never pay. Certain users made a review about it online.

I thinks scammers are lazy people who are coward's that doesn't want to work who stay behind their phone or computer and rob people who have been working hard to achieve what they have

Of course it easier. Working for your income is much harder than taking it away from someone. Hiding behind their computer mask. Just like a bandit. Never give your information to people on the phone or net. Unless you contacted them.

I once fell for a phone scam. They called, made the offer sound so good. I don't know why I didn't think it was too good to be true, they said they would take £1. I gave them my card details and they took £80. I was so frustrated, I went to the bank, they said they couldn't do anything because I myself gave them my details.

all the more reason why nobody should fall for any telemarketer or any online web site includes any email notice. everyone of are none other fraud scammers only out to steal privite bank info and ect. dont forget those fake companies claiming this and that who come to the door for home repairs when theres nothing on been ordered another fraud

I remember when I was new to the internet. I search how to earn money online and I have join a lot of scam sites. I'm pretty naive that time.

Me too, I have encountered a lot of scams before landing to the real one I almost give up but good thing I did not.

I was scammed off of a site called olx where a guy was selling tvs and said that he would deliver it if i paid a deposit, well guy disappeared and money lost forever and still no tv, be careful on the web

i never got how people fall in the hands of phone scammers. online and website scams are harder to pick out unless you do research

Sadly people are to eager to earn money. And scammers always make it sound good. I love the ones that call saying I have one xxxx amount of dollars and need to send them xx money to process it. I say (If I'm the winner of xxxx money take the coast out of it and sent me the rest) LOL

What about the e-mails from overseas wanting bank info to send an "inheritance". Or the Indian guy who calls and says your computer is sending him error messages. Some of the scams going around are so lame its hard to believe anyone would ever fall for them.

Scams are everywhere, in the internet, text messages or even in the real world. That's why we have wise with anything.

I got a text message from "Wells Fargo" today and talk about scam. They wanted me to send my social security number and my card number. I don't even have a card.

so many scams going on people just trying to get ahead or get over people sad to see people being scammed

I think we need to discipline ourselves and always think of the higher possibility of our actions that will affect our future.

Money can really makes our minds blurry at times, but always remember there is no easy way to earn millions but through hardwork. As long as a company talks about your own money from your own bank... better to be wise or just get out of there.

I don't like them! I don't see any reason why people needs to enter this kind of business just to earn money. I've seen plenty of scams online and I've been a victim of that act.This is really unfair especially for those who have spent money expecting to have a home based job. It is really important to be extra careful when researching for online job.

Ugh scams, who likes them anyway? There are too many scams going on these days, sometimes you can't help but question everything you do and everything you involve yourself with. We have to be extra careful these days indeed.

I have encountered scams whenever I am looking for a legitimate work online. They would promise high income for just a short period of time. I learned right away its too good to be true. Its good that some people post their experience with such scam websites so that others who would Google the name of the websites were able to find it.

I am always getting phone calls from scammers. I have started to have fun with them. Put the phone next to loud music. Act like you just killed someone and ask them were they want you to hide the body. They hang up real quick on that one. It has even stopped a few from calling back. lol
