7 Ways to Make Money Online
Without Being Scammed…


It’s estimated that for every one legitimate online opportunity there are roughly sixty scams. The reason is that quite a few people seem to believe that there’s a magic package out there which allows one to make a lot of money on the internet with very little effort, and there’s always a less than reputable website willing to sell it to them.

To be perfectly honest there are many different ways to make money online, and working from home can be extremely rewarding. But there’s a big difference between a legitimate online job or opportunity and the unsolicited offers that often find their way into your inbox.

This is why we’ve put together a list of real ways to make money from home. These are all legitimate companies and methods which allow you to start getting paid for a wide range of activities with little or no investment on your part.

Feel free to explore the ideas on this page, join the discussions & leave your response below, or suggest an idea we haven’t thought of yet…

#1 Get an Online Job…

If you want to earn income at home then you may think the most obvious solution is to get a work-at-home job. Well you’re right! Unfortunately many internet scams specifically target people searching to work at home. To avoid falling for any kind of schemes the best thing you can do is go directly to the source. Find forums or job boards that focus on the kind of work you want to do. For instance there are many legit jobs in the customer service industry.

You can get a job as a customer service representative and earn money by fielding customer’s questions and providing them with support. This type of work will require some brief training and the ability to pass a background check.

If you’re the creative type, you can find work at home opportunities in almost any industry. If you have technical skills such as programming or graphic design, then the door is really wide open. In addition to full time work at home jobs there are a plethora of freelance jobs.

Check out our lists of legitimate work at home jobs below:

#2 Make Money Taking Surveys…

Surveys often get a bad reputation online because many people are confusing legitimate survey companies with other fraudulent online offers. The most important thing you need to look for in an online survey site is that it’s associated with a real market-research company.

There are many false “survey” websites out there that attempt to charge money for survey opportunities, but participation in real market research should always cost you nothing.

In addition, many fraudulent websites claim extraordinary earnings from taking surveys, which is not how real survey companies operate. You should have reasonable expectations and understand that you’re not going to make a full-time income taking surveys.

Big-name brands pay research companies to get their members to take various surveys. Often times they’re looking for very specific demographics which means you may not qualify. The best way around this is to be honest in your profile and sign up with several websites to increase your chances of qualifying.

Check out our list of free online survey companies.

#3 Get Paid to Browse the Net…

With more and more retail and advertising dollars being spent online studying people’s browsing habits has become huge business. Insights into online behavior are worth thousands, if not millions, of dollars to large companies who do business online.

This is why there’s been a significant rise in research firms that study how and why people do certain things online. In order to get this data they’ve developed websites that reward people with gifts and prizes for contributing to their statistics.

One of the most reputable companies offering this opportunity is www.SwagBucks.com. They’ll pay you for doing things online such as browsing, shopping, or even playing games. Any info they collect is anonymous and unidentifiable so your privacy is protected.

Working with Swagbucks will certainly not replace your dayjob, but why not get a little something extra for doing many of the things that you’re already doing anyways?


#4 Make Money With Your Own Website…

If you’re looking to work hard, be your own boss, and create a full-time income for yourself then making money with your own website is the route you’re looking to take. With a website you open yourself up to a variety of income sources, primarily making money through advertising networks such as AdSense or affiliate marketing.

You no longer need to be a computer or programming expert to make money with a website. Services such as blogger and wordpress allow you to quickly create your own website and even host it for free. Keep in mind that you will not make money on your first day, or likely your first month.

Making money with a website is a lot like starting your own business. It can be a lot of work and you often don’t reap the benefits till much later down the line. However, if you’re willing to work hard, have an idea or vision, and have a passion for self-employment then there’s nothing stopping you from succeeding.

Many people get intimidated just by the thought of creating their own website, which is why we put together a step-by-step, easy to follow guide that’ll show you how to do everything from creating your site to earning your first dollar online. Check out our free make money online guide

    I’ve been doing surveys for nearly 3 years now come Sept 2015. The reality is you won’t get rich quick, unless you spend countless hours a day doing multiple sites. For me working full time that just isn’t going to happen. But I do make money on a number of legit sites that have paid money out to me over the years. I’ve been a member of Inbox Dollars, Vindale Research, Opinion Outpost. All were legit and all paid. I’ve since left Inobx Dollars (wasn’t qualifying anymore) and Vindale Research (too high of cash out-$50-and not qualifying). I’m still active in Opinion Outpost and wil say it has been one of the most consistent sites I’ve had the pleasure to work with. Points add up quickly and pay out even faster. In my Paypal account within minutes of me redeeming.

    I more recently got involved with Pine Cone Research, Ipoll, and Mintvine. Haven’t had a payout for them yet, but Mintvine has been very good to me with qualifying and racking up points. Just waiting for some to be approved for the payout. I’ve been recommending this one to my friends as it seems just as easy as Opinion Outpost and one that I really enjoy.

    I’ve only been a member since August 2nd and already have over 1700 points with very little time investment. The survey opportunities come at a steady rate so you will always have enough to collect points from.

    This has been very helpful. I have one question though. I had someone from Paradise Freebies get in touch with me and she said she earns over $1,000 a week with doing this and wants to help me get started. It will only cost me $25. Does anyone know if this is true or if it is a scam? Thank you!!

    Hey everyone, have you ever thought of creating an email JUST FOR THESE SITES? I do that and then all the JUNK that is sent goes there and not to my real, personal email address.

    Every time I decide I don’t want to do the surveys or whatever “job” I was supposed to do for them, I just don’t visit that email address again and the junk goes to no one.

    It just takes a few minutes but saves hours of frustration with a cluttered personal email inbox!

    I’m also still looking for that “right” job – good luck to us all,

    The best advice I can give you is to find a company that is ranked in Fortune 500 and have real persons who have made some success with the business and that you can interact with. Some of these companies though not necessaryily the typical “online” businesses each week provide firstly, on hand meetings to introduce the Business to prospective business partners and secondly, training for all Business Partners. They grow by helping you to grow. They live up to their motto “while you may be in business for yourself you are not in business by yourself”. There is always someone to help you.

    I have been scammed time and time again by these get rich quick scammer until joing a business that have “real people” who have experience “visible real success” and are willing to help move to their level of success.

    The best advice I can give is to look within your community for such like business or businesses, they are likly meeting each week at your local hotels or community centers. e to read the entire review. Thank you so very much for sharing. You

    Hello, I like TD Ameritrade. They are very reputable, you get your fills very fast and their pricing for in and out is very fair. OptionXpress is also rated very high. I don’t trade binary options, but regular options and stocks. Before you start trading, it is best to educate yourself as much as you can. OptionsXpress and Investopedia do allow you a practice trading account. When you are comfortable with your trading, then you can fund your account and start live trades based on your trading level.

    Since you have to apply for jobs on line & then your hit with websites that find you a job,,,just a bunch of crap,,it’s all a scam to get you to sign up to go back to school costing you a lot of money that you don’t have,if I had money to pay for that I wouldn’t be looking for employment..i have not got one job from these sites & now you have to go to a employment agency to find employment which pays you beans,,you never get raises,Holliday pay,vacations or anything..they pay you 9 or 10.00 per hour & the company pays them 15.00 per hour for your services.The government needs to put guide lines on all employment agencies where their employment policies are the same as companies offer you..These actions is what is killing America & the only way to get ahead is to try to open up your own business..if anyone has any ideas,please help..money is running out & I could use a little help on what I can do..thanks

    In response to the post regarding Inbox Dollars, I have been a member there for 2 yrs. and I cash-out $30 about every 5 weeks. I do not attempt to reach $40( where they pay your $3 processing fee) because it does get harder to qualify at that point.
    However, I have been a member of CashCrate for 2 yrs. also. My monthly checks are well over $100 and I have NEVER done any offers, ONLY surveys, and I have been able to supplement my fixed income pretty nicely.
    I would actually recommend either of these sites, especially CashCrate. Just know that there will be surveys that you don’t qualify for, so you MUST be patient. Good luck to all in whatever you endeavor.

    For Norma- most Microsoft computers can upgrade from XP to Windows 7 without serious issues, if that helps you with your online issue. I’m running a Dell laptop that was designed as an XP machine and runs Win 7 great, better than XP. With several computers in my home, old XP machines are running Win 7.
    Be sure to upgrade your browser, whichever one you use to a very current browser with will definitely help you. Win 7 discs are cheap and you can find legit ones. The worst case scenario is you go back to XP.
    Back up all of your data before you do anything!!!!!

    I’ve been there and done that with survey sites, and although I haven’t tried every site, I must say that simply trying to cut through all the spam that you receive makes me throw my hands up and say sc?:w this!!

    I’d love to be one of the few who actually HOLDS a degree, and therefore can pick & choose which online SCHOOL they’d like to teach courses on. Lol!! But that’s not exactly “the norm”.
    I concur with the gentleman who said it so plainly… Making an actual “living” by doing online work is total Bullcr&p.
    Making 6 bucks a month by filling out surveys that take up HOURS just to complete may be “legit”, but it’s just plain RIDICULOUS!!

    Absolutely! I suffer new round of spams every time i go a round by searching and asking for job info via their cloaked email or by leaving messages on a phone#.People get really good at making it seem that they have a legitimate offer and they are located in town or close by . . with a google Map and even a pic of house with trees and shrubs that are common to your area… They harvest your email and sell them to spammers trying to makes sales for pennies an email. These posts often ask for you to drop in your name and phone # as well.
    You would think that Craigslist could eliminate most of this hassle that one goes through to find maybe one real job out of 5-10 bogus email consumer info harvester postings…

    June 27th, 2015 at 4:40 pm

    WordPress.org allows you to earn from Adsense, this comes with hosting packages you can buy cheap. In my country (the Netherlands) I have a hosting provider that gives me all I need for 0.50 cents per month for webhosting plus a small annual fee for the domain name (depending on the extension, it will be from 1.50 to 8.49 (euros) a year.

    I am sure there are many other companies offering cheap hosting including CMS like Word Press where you have freedom! Yep, you pay a little, but hey, I recently bought a webhosting plus a .nl domain name for one of my Dutch websites and guess what…. within 2 months I earned my money back for 5 years (I did a 5 year deal, that was cheaper and is better for SEO too)

    I only need to earn about 1 euro a month ;-) but i earn way more than that. So investing in webhosting and a domain name is worth it!

    a good paid to click, paid to review, paid to promote, paid to sign up, etc. site is donkeymails. It is awesome. Online since 20 years and paying. Accepting members from all over the world. Google it. Highly recommended. Of course your real earnings come from referrals.

    To get referrals I have a few people on Fiverr that promote my link for $5 :D And I have an upgraded account which gives me 25 referrals every 6 months. But you can earn there for free too. My advice is that you start for free, get as many people sign up under your link, then use your earnings to upgrade your account…. and then start earning for real!

    The owner is awesome, he is from my country (the Netherlands) and runs the site with his wife. They respond to emails real soon. I love the place.

    Hi BJoseph,

    I have a question..sort of.
    There was a woman who lived briefly in our neighborhood, who was friends with a mutual friend of ours, she moved away, out of state. I had met her once I think. Following her move, Let me back up,.. I had been researching working online and had heard of all these too good to be true ventures for awhile. Somehow it became known to me, that this woman worked online. Our mutual friend gave me her phone number. Because I didn’t know her very well at all, I felt limited as to how much I could ask her. I did let her know my interest was to be able to have a decent little side job. I told her I had opened a separate account, just in case I decided to invest a small fee somewhere down the line, I would only put in what I was willing to lose. She said that I would have to give my banking info because that’s how I would get paid. She asked if I had a website. And she told me she had 30 girls working under her, the word host or hostesses was used. She didn’t elaborate, However, she said to go to the affiliate section on a website, She mentioned Western Union would be a good one. I didn’t know her enough to find out what it is she actually did. It felt weird, she didn’t offer and so I didn’t press. I could kick myself, but at the time, I felt as though I would have been asking for a trade secret or something.

    My question to you, and I apologize for taking forever to get here….. Does the little bit I’ve told you, ring true to what you may be referring to? Whatever she did, is this it? Thank you in advance, and just thank you for reading.

    Sincerely, Sylvia

    I have been participating with Inboxdollars for about 3 weeks and have just reached the $30 dollar threshold to receive a payment. Inbox sweetened the offer if I waited until I accumulated $40 and as I approach this goal, I am suddenly qualifying for fewer and fewer surveys. Though I successfully completed 4 recent surveys, no payment has been credited for my effort. I do not know if this is a pattern of deception or not, but Inbox makes it very difficult to challenge nonpayment by 1) making the process very opaque 2) by claiming that they have no knowledge of the surveys that 3rd parties present (even though they are accessed through the Inbox website) 3) limiting your ability to even question the non payment by requiring that you “chat” with their representative with a Windows computer though surveys can be taken with Apple iOS. My preliminary conclusion is that you will at best receive pennies per hour for your participation. There is never-the-less something compelling about watching those pennies accumulate. If the pattern of non payment continues though, I cannot imagine that it will be worthwhile to continue aiding willful deception.


    Norma says:

    I do inbox surveys and I have 3 that paid well I have never recieved credit for. I have emailed them but no answer. I even paid the 4.99 for the trial offers.

    mrslavallie says:
    May 16th, 2015 at 11:36 pm

    I’ve been with inbox dollars for many years. I have never bothered to “try to increase to 40 in the next month” because I don’t EARN 10 dollars in one month through them…generally. But all I do through them is the daily email clicks – worth two cents a shot – so maybe 6 cents a day. I order toner through their offers, receiving great priced toner for my church and on the other end I get an average of ten bucks back on my inbox dollars account. Overall, I cash out my 30 bucks maybe 2 or 3 times a year. It’s certainly nothing great, but I have never had a problem cashing out with them! Again, I’ve been with them for many years. I remember the first time cashing out, they had to “verify” something or other and it took like two months to get my payment…but after you get your first payment, you are like gold level or whatever they call it – that’ not it – and you get your payments very quickly.

    Hi everyone. I read your reviews and they are a really big help to me. Infact I get over 100 emails a day not knowing what sites to trust. I have had no luck at all for a while with these survey sites. A lot of them want u to spend money. Send referrals hell u have to get someone to sign up before u might can even actually get paid. I am at my wits end. I wear myself out with all of these sites. Does anyone know of a legit site whether it’s PTC, surveys,reading emails. Promoting products or etc. anything legit. Don’t know how to promote products for companies. I try to scan these emails through scam advisor and all. But really just don’t know. If anyone can help email me at rewisteresa@gmail.com THANKS for READING!!!!

    There are no online jobs that you can make a living at unless you are creating apps or something like that. Think about it, no one in there right mind is going to pay some unknown person big money to do something online that they’re 12 year old daughter will do for free! Just trying to help. I wasted many hours investigating. Well not wasted because now I know.

    Not true, I make a fine living on Amazon Mechanical Turk…what you might want to be saying is that not EVERYONE can make a living, unless they put in the work and do their research. And keep in mind what “making a living” is to you, like how much you want to make for it to qualify as making a living. There are learning curves with everything you do, and if you give up…then you never were too serious about making a living at home. I am. So, I did.

    You can start at fiverr.com offering gigs for $5 each and offer extra great gigs for $5 to $40 It takes time to learn your way around in promoting your gigs, but it is worth it. On youtube.com there are many lovely videos that can help you with your first steps towards success.

    Freelance sites have been the best for me. It depends on your skills etc. I take articles through Textbroker.com . You have to submit a writing sample so do your best. It will determine how you are rated, what you are paid and what is available to write. I have heard of people doing well on Odesk Elance and Fiverr as well.

Everyone talks of scams and there are many but, I have not seen any reviews on a company where someone is actually working for a work at home company that pays you a salary.

    It is disgraceful how these sites that pretend to help you find a job try to suck people in. They are making a great deal of money at other people’s loss.

    These companies ask you to join send information through to your email and before you know it you are searching through what appear to be numerous job opportunities only to find out that there is a registration cost.

    Imagine every person who decides to register, millions of people. Times these millions by the $60-$87 or even in the hundreds registration fee and then you have an an idea of how these companies are making money. Why is it that the companies that need workers don’t just advertise and offer the job? It may be saving them time, however, it is costing people who are sincerely looking for work money that they can not afford before they even start, only to find that it is all a scam.

    Many sites say that registration is free and that there are no start up costs,well, what a lode of poop. Don’t fool yourselves, there is always a fee even if it is a $1.50 catch. Imagine 3000 000 people by $1.50 with no outcome. Do your sums. How much money has this company made dishonestly?

    It is a real shame that these scam sites are unable to make a decent living without preying on naive people who are struggling. They must be so proud of themselves. Wow!

    What it really comes down to is greed and no conscience.

    Good luck with finding a job on line. I have not registered for anything yet because there is always a fee and usually a scam.

    Oh, and by the way. Don’t you like the star ratings for people who have complimentary comments. They are all in it together. Ha Ha

    e-rewards.com is totally free but you don’t make money, you earn gift cards etc. I was able to buy several Christmas gifts last year with this program. There are a LOT of rewards that are travel miles etc and so are completely useless to me. I have traded points for Best Buy cards, money off at Macy’s, deals on Omaha Steaks and they have lots of magazine subscriptions. Before you take a survey they tell you what it’s about, what the full QUALIFIED survey is worth in point $$ and what the partial credit (usually around 25 cents) is if you don’t qualify and lastly about how long the survey should take

    I agree with Casper. There are better ways and places to learn how to make extra money online. Fiverr and Elance for sure. Check em out, look around and get a feel for what they offer and see if you can do anything like that.

    Also, WorkplaceLikeHome.com shows plenty of online gigs and a forum of like-minded folks all trying to make a living. “Legitimate Work at Home Jobs” on FB has a great page that’s constantly updated with jobs.

    But I believe the best way to make a living online by far is creating your own business, or businesses. Niche Marketing and such. Places like Wealthy Affiliate, Smart Passive Income and Lazy Ass Stoner to start with. Hard work up front, but pays off in the end. Also a great online FREE course online through Udemy. Dude takes you step by step to starting your own biz.

    There’s more, but these are the ones I buy services from over and over again. Just create a free profile with whatever you are able to deliver. being it writing, photoshop, making speaks or testimonial videos etc. Anything you can do with a PC and even more. There’s also delivered goods available. Are you near a campus? – Hand out customer material.

    You CAN earn money here. And I’m and entrepreneur. I use for at least 1000 USD per year on these sites, cause it’s cheaper, simpler, faster than doing it myself.

    Like Maria above stated, the online survey was mostly a waste of time. I too did it for 6 months and the amount of money I made wasn’t even enough to pay for the fee to sign up. Most of the surveys you will take, pays about $1.00 for 20 minutes of time. Also you could spend a lot of time filling out the questionnaire and at end they said you are not qualified for the survey.


    surveysareajoke says:
    February 20th, 2015 at 10:56 pm

    Dude, I know.

    I tried doing those surveys and a single survey, by itself, took 30 minutes or more. By the time of the 3rd or 4th survey, one would be mentally out of it.

    Also, just as you say, the surveys are geared for a very ‘specific’ person. If you not that ‘specific’ target person, the questions are going to start to sound very alien to you.

    As an example, I am not really choosy when it comes to foods. I just eat whatever and whenever…..you know, biscuits or toast for breakfast and for lunch, a sandwich, and dinner – an ‘average’ meal. I’m a single guy and no dependents. I just eat whatever I get my hands on…nothing fancy.

    Now you go on a certain survey, they may ask if you shop at some high end supermarket and if so, they further narrow it down to their perceived notions about your ‘eating preferences’.

    I was being asked how often I eat stuff, that I had never heard of before. In order to do these surveys, you’ve either got to be the ‘real McCoy’ or…………..lie like there is no tomorrow and I have never been good at being an actor.

    It’s like being someone who likes to ‘listen to music’…..with no particular interest in any one genre – just anything that sounds good, and then being asked to expound on Mozart, Prokofiev, or Beethoven. What these researchers do that make these surveys is ‘assume’ that a specific set of people are going to be on these surveys….which is a big mistake.

    In Psychology I learned that when conducting surveys that you always be wary of variables. The big elephant in the room/or ‘variable’ in the room, is that the audience that these people are trying to target: those with a very high income and specific preferences are in careers. These people are already MAKING good money. The PEOPLE that are actually getting on the surveys are people that are not necessarily career professionals:People that get on these surveys are average people whom are looking for ways to make money.

    Professional people do not, on average, feel compelled to participate in these sort of things, specifically because they already have money. A person that already has a very good and steady income would not feel the need to go online, looking for ways to make money and invariably end up on one of these surveys, as a result.

    Ultimately the people whom the surveys are targeting never take the surveys and the people whom the surveys are not for, are taking the surveys to make money.

    There is no such thing as shortcuts or making money easy. I have been sucked in by a few myself and have lost a lot of money in the process. There is a brilliant website, www.wealthyaffiliate.com that you can browse, watch the full intro video without spending a cent. You’ll be taught step by step how to start your own website to making a full time income.

    You have direct access to the owners Kyle and Carson, and immediate access to 1000′s of members that are online and on live chat, available 24/7, still without spending a penny. When you’ve made up your mind whether it’s for you or not, you can make a decision to stay (free for as long as you like), or upgrade for a reasonable monthly fee which I can guarentee you will be happy to pay.

    Good luck!

    I have been doing surveys for many years. The sites that have actually sent checks to my home are: Inbox Dollars, Send Earnings and Unique Rewards. My points has sent a Walmart gift card to me. I have also received two gift cards from Swagbucks – one was an e-gift card for Sephora, and the other was for Walmart. I am working on getting a third card soon.

    Swagbucks has been the most fun site of them all!Once a month, you can join a swagbucks team, and get swagbucks for your team…and chat with them as well. It makes it more interesting! Swagbucks are exchanged for gift cards. I recently joined tellwut which takes very little time to do – maybe 2-3 minutes each day to answer questions that have 2-5 questions on them. I don’t get rich, however it comes in handy to have a little cash on hand for birthday & Christmas gifts!


    Sher says:
    March 25th, 2015 at 11:36 pm

    @ Rob Adams I LOVE InboxDollars! I have been paid twice so far within about 45 days, and earned a total of $70.00. They have several survey opportunities per day and they vary between .25- $2.50 (the most I have seen so far for surveys), but none of them are ever just .02.
    The InboxDollar email notices are each .02 if you “confirm” them- which is simply clicking a confirm button.

    Also, they provide several different activities to earn money with on the site besides the surveys and emails. This site is great for “play money” or saving toward a Christmas fund.

    I have been trying and weeding out several other survey sites. I prefer to do the ones that provide a Cash/PayPal option personally.

    Jason says:
    March 20th, 2015 at 10:58 am

    Try ‘Fusion Cash’ also. The are good for surveys for money too. Will send checks or direct deposit. No fees.

    Rob Adams says:
    February 19th, 2015 at 2:31 pm

    I read a review of Inbox Dollars that said that people who sign up make 2 cents for each survey they complete, and they won’t get a check until they earn $30. I did the math and came up with 1,500 emails before they see any money.
    I’ve been at if for months and haven’t seen a dime. I did the math and if I did one survey a day, seven days a week, two cents per survey, it would take four years to see that 30 dollars.

    Maria says:
    January 28th, 2015 at 2:14 am

    I’m not trying to be mean or anything. But, I did the SURVEY thing with the agency that you mentioned. & I did nothing but WASTE my time & ended up with a few dollars. They DO NOT PAY!!!! I have made more money doing the PTC than I did by doing surveys. Because people are talking about how good they are. But, not telling people that you have to: QUALIFY first. & if you don’t then you would have wasted your time answering questions for nothing. So I’m sorry but SURVEYS are NOT the way to make money.
