There a number of ways to spot a scam.
First off, is it to good to be true?
Any offer promising you millions or even thousands through one or two hours a day are the biggest scam artists. They play on your emotions, they play on your needs, and end up no offering you a thing.
Do they want you to pay?
Whether it be a registration fee, a membership fee, or a fee for some crummy e book promising to jump start your online career, its a scam, its just a way for them to make money online. Never Pay to work! If people are truly trying to refer you to a good program, they won't have to lie. Honesty is the best policy... always.
Any legitimate company will never ask you to pay, everything I review requires 110% no investment. Most companies that pay you to post makes money off of the number of people in their community and the content they provide. They offer most people a cut of their profit, so there is no reason for you to pay.
Don't get excited about Testimonials.
People are always willing to lie for a referral, but why? Once you lie about something and waste someones time then they will never listen to you again, but its a quick way for some people to get a quick referral dollar.
Do your research!
If a company is legit, you will be able to do a Google search, and find proof of payments, and more. You can also find complaints on message boards and scam websites.
Hope this helps! I made a hub! Check out
for more information on spotting online scams.
I'm inclined to think that if any of them ask for money to help you, then they are a scam.
If the people or the site talks about money and is not realistic then definitely it is a scam. You can discern it.
