Online Money Makers: Once Bitten, Twice Shy
Within the last decade or so, unscrupulous people have found ways to scam people out of millions of dollars.
Because of these scams, most people are rightly wary when they hear the words "make money online."
eHow offers the promise of helping people earn passive residual income by writing simple how-to articles. There are some eHow writers who claim to make over $1,000 per month at eHow. But is eHow a scam?
How is eHow Supposed to Work?
eHow is a free-to-join site where every day people can become writers. A member's "job" at eHow is to write how-to articles in a simple step-by-step format.
eHow pays members according to a secret formula based on page views, demand of the article, writer's skill, and ads displayed on the articles' pages.
eHow will only pay a writer if s/he has earned at least $10 for that particular calendar month. In other words, if you earn $9.99, you will not be paid that month.
So is eHow a Scam?
By definition, a scam is a "fraudulent scheme, especially for making a quick profit; swindle."
eHow is a site that is free to join, and eHow never requests or takes money from its members. Therefore, eHow cannot ever be considered a scam.
Quite the contrary: eHow is an excellent FREE way for people to make money online, from the comfort of their own homes. If a wrtier doesn't meet the $10 payout minimum in any calendar month, eHow rolls those earnings over to the next month until the total reaches the $10 payout minimum.
With thousands of members earning free money online, and a few earning in excess of $1,000 and $2,000 per month, eHow is not a scam, and has been the financial life preserver that many struggling households so sorely needed.
