Online Job for a Fee?

This morning, Vincent was surfing to the internet. He called my attention. He then showed me a website that is offering a home based job. Of course, who would not want a source of income? And so, I checked it out. Unfortunately, I realized it is one of those sites that has to be paid a certain amount before you could start working for them.

The nature of the job is that you will give your opinion about a certain product. Then you will be paid for it. Sounds good. On top of that, being paid for your honest opinion is believable. 

It is said that you can earn as much as $30,000 a month for the task. You would have to buy something though, I  can not recall anymore the term used for what you will be paying for. You will be paying $70.00 rounded off . That is the portion that shatters me. How much is $70.00 in Philippine Peso? If the conversion rate is 46, then that would be 3,200.00 Philippine Peso. Wheew...would you pay that amount for a job that you are unsure of?

If you will type "work from home" in the search engine, surely many will come up. Surely one can say that internet has a vast array of working opportunity. Hey, my arms are wide open. I, for one, is earning significant amount through writing. Therefore, I could definitely attest that there is good money through internet work. 
However, it took years before I am able to stumble to good paying jobs. I had been scammed on the process. Bottom line is that, while there are a vast array of work online, there are a lot of scams as well. I say we have to be very careful.  When I was new in the internet work, friends advised me never, never go to jobs where I would be required to pay a certain amount before I start working. I also read that in a number of articles I read. This said, I had been doubtful about jobs where I should be paying before starting to work.

How about you, had you known any body who gave money to a site  and really was able to land to a legit source of income? Had they received the payment they so deserve? More importantly, was their money returned through their income? It would be a welcome to know of some one who really earned income after paying for their job.

Personally, I am doubtful. Following logic, why would you give money to your employer so you could render service to them? 

What do you think?

I totally agree with you in regards to not signing up on such kind of offer. Something like that smells a lot like a scam. Although, I can't say that for sure, but I always believe that we can start earning even without spending any money. Its just too risky throwing some cash to sites that offer something almost too unreal.

Hi, I am glad you dropped by. Oh, yes, you are correct. I do not know, too, if there are jobs for a fee that are really legit. If they really earn that much [$3,200], then $70 is a small amount to pay for such a big opportunity. The problem is that if the offer is too good to be true, chances are it is not real. Besides, earning online is based on effort.Your earning will depend on your production. That is how it works with earning online.

Anyways...thank you for dropping by.
