Every so often I get snookered by some fancy typing website. There was one I saw on Facebook of all places where someone posted a like for it. It was then called "PayTaski" and was supposed to be a "work at home" gig where you got paid for tasks.
They didn't ask for any money to join. All you had to do was get people to sign up and they paid you $10 per lead. Sounded fine and great. The payout was at $300 and paid through PayPal after you verified and all that.
So I sent traffic its way and started getting signups left and right. In less than 4 days I had $295 in my account and knew I could cash out the next day and was thrilled at the result. There was a lot I could do with that extra money. Thinking how much easier it was to make money this way and making some plans to expand further filled my head and dreams that night.
Grandpappy always told me not to count the eggs and wait on chickens...
I tried (yes tried) to go to the site the next day to cash out and ....it wasn't there anymore - GONE! Nothing but a blank page. So I kept trying thinking the site may be down.
A couple days later there was a domain redirect up to another site called "GiveMeLeads" or something like that with the same deal. My login didn't work and nobody from support would contact me back. I have no idea what they are really doing. I have never gotten any email from them or any "new" spam.
I just know they shattered my poor dreams...sniff...sniff
So another life experience to add to the collection. I should have known better, but sometimes you just have to take the chance.
