Facebook, Gmail, Twitter, and many other social networking sites are occupying a decent margin of our day. Does your day end without even any one of these? It is these networking sites that do provide advertising portals, where often shady entrepreneurs post their recruitment requirements for the easy money-making survey exercises.
Rita is a college student. While surfing the net, she landed up visiting a lucrative fake money making site which tells her that she can make easy money by filling surveys for international companies who want the public opinion and wish to make her a part of the survey sample. But alas, that happens only after Rita pays them a sum of Rs 3000 as deposit! Why does one have to pay to get work? It sounds fishy already, doesn’t it? You can access such information and ads from any corner of the world.
Today we have progressed so much that we carry internet in our pockets. Most of us have access to internet via our phones. All the social networking sites can be visited; we can be in touch with our friends all the time of the day only with just a touch, thanks to the innovative touch screen. Hence it becomes increasingly possible for you to get stuck in some well advertised, superlatively tempting, online survey scam which would only take money away from you for good. The Internet has umpteen advantages but one needs to be smart to not get lured by fake advertisements posted by unknown companies.

In this deal not only do you lose out on money but you also make a credit or debit card payment giving away with your personal card details. Thus in this mere registration process with the ‘scam’ company you have given away some of the most valuable personal information. Such companies and indulgent individuals are known as ‘scammers’, and they do online scams or frauds related to internet. People who are not experienced in the fields of internet are mostly prone to such scams or frauds. However it is not difficult to learn a way to recognize these scams.
