There are a lot of scammers out there. To avoid falling into the trap check out many sites like ours who have done the research. But just as with SPAM email, you do not register on every site. Do not fall into the trap of the quick rich scheme. It just does not work otherwise everyone would do that and everyone will be quickly rich and who is going to pay for that? The companies? They will go bust that way, isn't it?
Before you go into something, always do a background check. Search for the companies, there are many forums and it might be that the company that sounded very interesting suddenly is becoming less attractive for simple reasons like “no money paid”, or money is paid after 6 months. Payments should be done through Paypal or by check but Paypal is obvious a very good solution and on a weekly basis or monthly.
If you are a writer and companies ask you to write for a sample then don’t. You want to be paid for your work. There are enough companies out there that pay for your work you only need to find them. And here again, do the background check.
We have checked a lot of sites, became a member to find out that UK citizens are not allowed or better to say only US citizens. Great, we can understand that but then make sure that we see it during registration.
When a company writes an email like below without writing why they deny then they are nothing but a bunch of crooks and are named at Crookery.

You can expect a lot more from a company that has Amazon written all over it.
The company Ojooo is in financial trouble and therefore do not pay their customers. In short, forget about them, do not pay any money do them nor send any traffic. Just review their forum and know enough. The owner Ojooo Deutschland GMBH cannot pay any more. It was supposed to run fine but setting up a business with so much competition is not easy.
