Thanks to everyone who responded to my post, but this isn't about how much money I am making on this site. The reason I think it's a scam is because in order to receive my payment in a check I have to verify with my phone number; however, every time I try it never goes through (I always get an error or nothing). I came across instructions on 'how to alternatively get paid via check', which consists of submitting a fax with copy of school transcripts or some crap. It shouldn't be this difficult! I don't care that I am not making tons of money o this site, that's not why I am disappointed. I am glad to hear from a lot of you that it is a legit site, but I need to experience that for myself and it hasn't happened yet... I am just very frustrated. Is there anyone here who has had issues receiving their payment by check? If so, what did you do to resolve this?
Ok, so this is not a scam, but rather a technical issue/error. These things have happened and your not the only one. Some people have reported issues verifying phone numbers.
First of all, if you can set up a FREE PayPal account, which itself can be used for ANY online purchases, or sent for free to your bank account (direct deposit is another option), then I highly recommend that. It pays faster. If however, you must receive by check, there are some options.
1) try using other household members phones for this purpose.
2) contact your phone provider to try to resolve the issue. When receiving the text message verification from FC, it is not sent by a phone number, but rather an email address. This may be the issue and your phone company may be able to help.
3) Send FC a support ticket detailing the issue. This WILL take some time to get a response. Just keep earning $ while you patiently wait.
4) Carefully read that alternative option you mentioned - I am not familiar with it, but it sounds like a possibility if all else fails. And remember, the verification will only have to be done 1 time.
I was a previous member of FC for over 2 years and at that time, I always received a check, like clockwork, each month or 2. Now I am signed up for PayPal as it is much more convenient. But I can gauentee you FC pays its member. I am sorry for the difficulty you are experiencing, but once fixed, all will be well as it is a one time issue / hurdle.
