I think scammers "prey" on certain types of people. Sure, there are websites like Fusioncash that let you earn a few extra dollars here and there, but this site will never let you pay the bills or the rent on a regular basis. I think "scam" websites - like certain paid survey sites and "get rich quick" schemes that require a payment to merely access links and information regarding stay-at-home-business ventures are at a rise. Especially in these economic times. People are freaking out about money, and worry and stress can cause one to make poor decisions. I believe these websites are taking advantage of individuals with real monetary concerns by providing false promises and using specific images on their website to target those who might feel the crunch of today's economic strain. For example - stay at home moms. I've heard plenty of stories from stay at home moms who had to go and find menial jobs to help support their families after their husbands lost employment or received a reduction in pay, etc. And if you look at the images on the survey and get-rich-quick websites, you'll often see young, attractive women. And in descriptions you'll read statements like, "Look how this stay at home mom made $1,000 a week just from working at home!" or "Perfect for stay at home moms looking for some extra income!"
Basically, just use your best judgement. If merely getting more information requires money, chances are you'll be given a list of links to other pay-for websites after your credit/debit card has been charge. And if it sounds "too good to be true" - well, chances are it is
