warning -"type numbers online"

6 replies
People who want captchas solved run these ads. They tell people before hand how much they will make but they don't tell you that your earnings will not be released to you until you recruit 40 other suckers for them. Don't fall for it and if you have already fallen for it I would suggest you notify your state's Attorney General office. No they didn't get me but I have talked to people that they suckered.

    I wouldn't wait around for the Attorney General to open up a case against the "captcha bandit" if I were you.

    I doubt they would be interested. I can see the headline now "Captcha Ponzi Scheme Thwarted."

    Why would you waste your time getting paid pennies to solve captchas anyway?

    Why not make some real money online instead?

      Same reason people sign up for 'paid to click', 'paid to read emails' and other schemes. It sounds like easy money.

      Like all such schemes, the large print giveth and the small print taketh away.

        Yup. If it sounds too good to be true... Well, you know the rest.

    Not to mention how mind numbingly boring it all is. I know, speaking from experience as one of my first jobs out of college was a data input operator at a gas company.

    I got good at memorising and typing 12 digit numbers without looking at the keyboard. The only thing that kept me sane is that I worked with some really interesting people in between typing/checking numbers. One went on to form an animation company and the other two were psychology students.

    The powers that be in the office cottoned on that we all got on so they separated us and I ended up facing a wall for company. After that I quit and went to work in I.T.

    Fond memories of the people there but the job itself should not be done by a human being. Brain numbing activity of the highest order! On the plus side it made me more tolerant of monotonous and repetitive tasks and because I know what it's like on the bottom rung of the ladder I never quit.

      Hi Dean,

      I had a similar experience at a well know financial services company.

      I did meet a few fascinating folks, but overall, the data entry bit was maddening.

      Gave me contrast as to what I did not want to do with my life.

    Hi R,

    This is an energy issue.

    Like, anybody involved with such schemes is terrified to lose money, or fears they are about as good as a few pennies a day.

    Then, their fear reflects back to them, as pennies a day, or nothing.

    The Attorney General will get involved with this the same day the AG decides to crack down on 3 card monty games on box crates in NYC.

    Being as compassionate as possible here, but if folks fall prey to such overtly obvious schemes, it's definitely their fault, with either their intense greed to get something for nothing, or fear of going broke motivating them to join such scams.

    Everybody who's making pennies, do yourself a favor: learn a real skill, help people, and over time, you can build the foundation for a meaningful and prospering business.

    Ryan
