Paid-to-Read Emails

These are probably the worst programs out there right now and have been for quite some time. I think it’s the simplicity of the system that makes it so appealing and why they have survived for so long. I mean think about it… "all I have to do is read emails and I can make a decent living from home?". Wow! I can read emails!

Reality check. While these companies say that you can receive up to $500 per email, they are lying! How quickly do you think a company advertising via email would go out of business if they paid $500 for each email that was read by someone?

This is probably the biggest scam on the Internet today. But before I go too far let me say that there are some legitimate companies out there that actually will pay you to read emails (and click on the links contained in them to view a website). But they pay nowhere near even a dollar per email. Most are in the sub-penny to three cent area.

Now that would be fine I guess in that if you were very efficient with your time you could probably get through 6 emails a minute or so (viewing the web page 10 seconds per email). But the problem is they only send you between 10 and 50 emails a day.

So let’s do the math and let’s take the best case scenario (50 emails @ .03 per). Let’s figure 30 days in the month, so…. 30X50X.03= a whopping $45 per month! WOW! I’m rich! 🙂 And this is the very best case scenario. You actual results would probably be more like $5 to $15 per month.

Just say no to these obvious scams. And especially so if they want some money up front to set up and maintain your account. If you see an ad for one of these and I’ll positive you will since they just won’t go away, do me and yourself a favor and run away as fast as you can!

Until next time, to your success!
