Now the question is whether every online opportunity that asks for money is scam?You have heard of MLM programs. The very basis of MLM programs are having paid members.

There are many very profitable MLM programs.
There are some sites that offers to give you a list of survey companies for money. They are actually asking money for providing some services to you.
You do not need to pay to get an online job, but to join an online business you may have to pay.
2. Do Enough Research-Before joining any program do some research about the programs. The best place to find information about a money making program is niche forums. There you can find genuine people who has used that program and wants to share their experience. Another place is blogs that reviews the product. Most of the bloggers gives an honest review of a product. But, there is a problem even with that as well. Every second person can have different experience with a money making program. It does not mean that if one person has done well with the program you’ll also do so. So, whenever taking a decision about joining a program make sure you take these things into consideration.
