Do you want to work from home and make $500 daily by doing simple tasks only? Of course, you do. Well, this is the promise of WeeklyFixPay.com and Jobrize.com. But as someone like me who has been very active in the Internet since 2007, I am very sure that both ‘make money online’ websites are scam and should be avoided.

Let me first summarize how both websites has been fooling people in the Internet for many years now. As stated at the homepage of WeeklyFixPay.com, the site “is a new innovating and internet job site, where you will be hired to do some tasks, different in type and number. and you will be paid a estimated reward for that instant in your account.”

After you sign-up for free, the site says that the “job poster will review the service and approve the status for your payout, then you will be paid for your work via Cheque.” It also revealed that they currently have 128,000 employees, and has paid a total of $205,954,909!!! And yes, the sites promises a $25 sign-up bonus, and that members can make $500/day!!! (Whoa!)

On the other hand, Jobrize.com says on their homepage that “is a large-scale marketing and referral company in the United States of America. It was founded in 2010 and paying its members for doing tasks and activities which are given to them.” And just like WeeklyFixPay.com, the site has no membership fee, and that members can make $500 a day!

Apparently, many netizens around the world (including Filipinos) are falling for these scams, simply because members don’t have spend money, but rather their precious time. The victims promote these two websites usually on various Facebook Groups, hoping to earn a certain commission once a new member signs-up via their referral links.

So far, you cannot find anyone who can testify that he or she received payment from WeeklyFixPay.com and Jobrize.com. Instead, you will find tons of articles saying that both sites are scam. They scam people not by taking money from them, but getting their email addresses and other personal information, which they can sell or use in scamming others.

But how can I spot a fraud or scam Work-From-Home website?

1. All legitimate business sites have an About page, where you can find all the important information about the company, including its location and possibly, the name of the owner. As you can see, neither WeeklyFixPay.com, nor Jobrize.com has an About page.

2. All sites that requires to sign-up or to submit your personal and financial information should use HTTPS (where S means Secured) on their URL. Both sites only use HTTP (without the S), which means they are not secured.

3. Who is in the right mind to pay you $500/day for very simple tasks to do? As you can see in both sites I mentioned above, there are no specific requirements for members. So if the offered pay is too good to be true, chances are it is really a scam.

4. Anyone can easily write a short testimonial about a certain product or service. Anyone can also invent a name of use names and photos of innocent people to pretend that the testimonial is for real. Check their names on Google first before you believe.

5. Fake Contact details. In some cases, scam work-at-home sites reveal their email address on their Contact page, just like WeeklyFixPay.com and Jobrize.com did. But if you send them an email, your message will likely bounce back or you will receive an auto-reply.

Conclusion

Note that there are other scam Work-From-Home websites, such as Pay4users.com, Profitwoop.com, Visitprofit.com, FixMonthly.com, Profitified.com, JobTimelyInc.com, and probably more than a hundred more. Therefore, the key here is to be a very smart Internet user. Before you join any similar site, Google “(name of website) scam.” But more importantly, use your common sense and don’t be lazy. There is no such thing as ‘easy-money’ scheme.
