ad posting scams

Ad Posting Scams

Post ads and get paid! Sounds wonderful, but is it really?

These are also advertised as home typing positions. The idea is that you go to various forums and post ads, and you get paid when people respond.

Couple problems with this. First, the companies tend to vanish before payday. Second, many forums do not allow advertising, and will ban you for doing so. Third, it tends to be a lot of work for only a little response, as your ad gets deleted.

Income claims for these “opportunities” tend to be greatly exaggerated as well. Most ad posters won’t earn much even if the company actually pays them.

If You Get Scammed

First try to clear it up with the company. If they are uncooperative, let them know that you will be contacting officials about the matter. Then do it.
