Thank you so much for the warning. I agree with you, Fusioncash is a terrific website.

Unfortunately tough times bring the scammers out in droves. Never pay for a "job". A business ? Sure. A job ? Never!

I was talking about this with someone the other day. We were talking about how something could look great and theyn they ask for a small fee and take your money. With scammers all they need is a little bit of money from tons of people. I haven't cashed out yet but i'm glad to see lots of positve thins about fusion cash. Can't wit untill i get my first check.  :)

Hey, derrick....welcome newbie, I don't see your banner. I think you can get some credit for posting your banner. Check it out maybe you can add some more cash into your account. Good luck! :thumbsup:

Its amazing just how many scams are out. The ones that bother me the most are the email scams with the instructions for you to wire money. I read a really scary story about a couple who thought this "job" was the answer to their unemployment woes. They would up owing several hundred thousand dollars and even doing some time! I always check out everything that seems like a scam...over 95% of it usually is. It just irritates me because so many people need work and they are probably getting desperate. If it seems way to good to be true, DON'T do it!

I have my banner posted in my signature, but I haven't gotten credit for it.  But then again, I've not seen anywhere that we get credit for doing so.

any time you look for a job online and they ask you to pay upfront fees chances are they are a scam or a set up i hate these businesses let me no of a legit free online business besides doing surveys :peace: :bootyshake:
You are right...there are so many sites out there that appear to be legit but they are not. All they do is rip off people. Thats why I like FC...no scam ...no bs....just real cash!!!

Please be careful when they ask for bank account information for a small "shipping fee" for a FREE item. They can clean out your account instead.

I think it's always been that way. Even before the internet there were the work from home scams, telling people they could make money stuffing envelopes or things like that, and all they had to pay was a "small fee"... which just gave them a list of companies that "might" want work like this done.

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  :P
