Beware of GPT Sites

I have been a member of several GPT which stands for Get Paid To sites over the years. I admit that most of the ones I belong to did pay out. The problem is, a lot of the tasks that they have you do pay very little or even worse don't pay at all. GPT sites have you do things such as sign up websites, take surveys, watch videos, etc for money.

Some of these tasks are real easy like letting ad's run on your computer screen. That task pays you VERY little (you'll be lucky to get 25 cents a day with it). This is something you need to do when you are not using your computer because it is required that you have the ad always out front on your screen. Then you get the surveys that pay at most $1. They will take anywhere from 20 minutes to 1 hour to complete.

There are other things that take less time for you to do but claim to pay what surveys do which is signing up on websites. You are basically signing up to be spammed at whatever phone number and email you give. Those ones you'll be lucky for them to even credit as the majority of them do not. So not only do you not get paid but you still get the spamming.

There are things that will pay you $10 for but that includes signing up for something and giving out your credit card information. I am not going to sign up for something I need to spend money on. I also am not going to give my credit card information to some company I have never heard of. I strongly advise that people stay away from these sites.

GetMyComputerWorkingNow.com AKA Biznetworksolutions.com Scam

There is a company out there pretending to be Intuit QuickBooks and taking thousands of dollars from small business owners. They will tell you that you will get 5 years technical support and 5 years of QuickBooks along with payroll service for $4000+ a month. Once they get your money you don't get any of that and your money is gone. The numbers associated with this company are 855-973-2116 and 866-914-0101. Searching these numbers will pull up various scam reports along with additional websites these numbers are associated with. The WHOIS information on these websites are all private of course.

You need to stay FAR away from these people as they have taken thousands and thousands of dollars from unsuspecting people. If you happen to find this blog entry because you have been scammed my advice to you would be to contact your credit card company and see if you are within the time limit to file an appeal to the charge. You will also want to change your credit card number regardless because they will most likely try and charge your card again. Your also likely to end up on the dark web which people pay to get your credit card information to make purchases.

Biznetworksolutions.com has shut down but plenty of other sites will come up. It wouldn't surprise me if very soon if not already these scammers will change their numbers. It seems to me the people who they have scammed thought they were calling QuickBooks support and they get these people. The real number for Intuit products is which includes QuickBooks is 800-446-8848. You can also go to visit their support website at https://www.intuit.com/support/.

Cryptocurrency Faucets

Lately I have been trying out a lot of these cryptocurrency faucets. These are apps and websites that will pay you for viewing ads. This is frequently brought on by having you "check in" on the app or website every hour or so. When you hit that check in button an advertisement will play. This way they are getting paid for you viewing it and then they are giving you a portion of that money. You can also earn by downloading apps for your phone, viewing more ad's, and taking surveys.

Your payment will be in some form of cryptocurrency. The ones that I have done were either paying Bitcoin or Litecoin. While I have found a couple of apps and sites that are actually paying you the majority of them I have tried were not paying. The big indicator is when these apps are paying out really good money just to view an ad or "check in" as they put it. The ones that actually pay you are paying very little.

My advice would be to stay away from these altogether. You earn so little on the ones that are legit its not even worth it. Then when you try and earn more by downloading apps you will find that those apps contain all kinds of junk that will lag your phone up. I had to factory reset my phone due to this when I was trying these out for a review. There are plenty of sites that pay much more for you to do surveys like MTurk and CashCrate. Currently they don't pay you in cryptocurrency but you can always purchase it with that money.

CashNowOffer.com Sell Your Diabetic Test Strips

This website www.cashnowoffer.com tells people that they will buy their unused diabetic test strips. They will pay for the shipping and then you send them in. After they receive them you are suppose to be paid either by PayPal or by check. The problem is, people are not getting their payments. There have been a couple people who have claimed to receive checks that have bounced.

People who are sending in diabetic test strips usually are on fixed incomes and need this money. Taking advantage of people like this is unbelievable and should be stopped immediately. This company virtually has no way for you to contact them. Their 888 number goes to a voicemail box that is completely full so leaving a message isn't possible. Emails that are sent to them go unanswered as well.

They have a Facebook Page that they have deleting comments from of people asking where their money is. From the sounds of it they were once sending people money but something happened. Stay far away from this company!

Harvest Moon Loans

Harvest Moon Loans is a company located at 8 Crestwood Road Boulevard, CA 91905. There website is www.harvestmoonloans.com. They are offering loans that you will end up paying SEVERAL times that amount. For instance on their website it states that if you take out a $200 loan you will end up paying $111.42 every 2 weeks for 10 pay periods. Therefore when its all said and done that $200 loan will end up costing you $1,114.20 (assuming you don't miss a payment or have to pay less then the $111, if that's the case it will end up costing more). 

This company has several complaints with the BBB and on ripoffreport.com. These complaints all seem to be the same thing. They are misleading customers into thinking that they only need to make a few payment. It turns out those payments go towards the interest and not even the principal balance. Customers have also expressed concerns when see the same amount come out every 2 weeks for 3 months. LONG after the amount they borrowed and any legit interest should have been paid. 

This is a company that is an example of everything bad with these payday loans. This company even seems to go the extra mile into ripping people off. I have never seen anything like this with these insanely high fees and just the fact that you end up paying over $1100 for a $200 loan making your payments on time should be illegal. From what I have heard this company is also taking money from people in states that Harvest Moon Loan isn't licensed to do business in such as Washington State

People who need a payday loan normally don't have good credit or they have no credit. They are living paycheck to paycheck and when something comes up that is the only way they can borrow money is through a payday lender. Harvest Moon will gladly lend money because they will make so much more off of you. Harvest Moon will then keep deducting the money and just beating someone down until they have no choice but to take out another loan. If you need a loan please take my advice read the fine print and stay far away from Harvest Moon Loans.

Compensation (419 Scam)

This email came from "Dr. Mousse Omar" mousseo2@aol.fr. He wants me to get in touch with his secretary so I can get a large sum of money. Well the problem with that is they want me to get in touch with them so they can ask me to wire them a "fee" so they can release the funds. Once you send a fee they will keep after you to send more and more until you have nothing left or you stop responding to them. 

Dear Friend,

I'm sorry but happy to inform you about my success in getting those funds transferred under the cooperation of a new partner from Vietnam, though I tried my best to involve you in the business but God decided the whole situations. 
Presently I’m in Vietnam for investment projects with my own share of the total sum. Meanwhile, I didn't forget your past efforts and attempts to assist me in transferring those funds despite that it failed us somehow.

Now contact my secretary in Burkina Faso her name is Mrs.Vanessa Willner  on her e-mail address below vanessaillner812@gmail.com Ask her to send you the total of $800,000.00 Eight Hundred Thousand United State Dollars which I kept for your compensation,

For all the past efforts and attempts to assist me in this matter. I appreciated your efforts at that time very much. So feel free and get in touched with my secretary Mrs.Vanessa Willner and instruct her where to send the amount to you.

In my moment, I’m very busy here because of the investment projects which I and the new partner are having at hand, finally, remember that I had forwarded instruction to the secretary on your behalf to receive that money, so feel free to get in touch with Mrs.Vanessa Willner   she will send the amount to you without any delay ok. Extend my greetings to your family.

My Best regards
yours brother
Dr. Mousse Omar
Greetings from Vietnam
