is "moneymakingmachine.us" a scam???
I don't exactly know if this is a scam but every time i watch Youtube to find videos on ways to make money online i end up here.
In these videos you will see various people with different backgrounds saying that they make 200$ or more in a day putting in only 2hrs or so of work.
I was interested in a video which said one could earn money just by uploading pictures and adding simple tags to them.Yes he earned 150$ for doing this as well.
When i visit this site www.moneymakingmachine.us,all i can see are more Ads pertaining to Home businesses and how they will help you get started.
I'm kind of fed up...So if anyone knows or has experience with this site please answer.

It's a scam There are NO employers who hire you without a single face to face interview. If he were overseas, then he would have a local recruitment agency interviewing you. Nobody hires random people over the Internet Did he send you an I-9 and W-4 form as required by law before he asked you to start? That's more proof this is illegal He's phishing for your info to steal your identity and empty your account. DO NOT send any info. Instead file a police report

100% scam. There is no job. The next email was from one of the scammer's fake names and free email addresses and has demanded you buy a prepaid card and give him the information on the card. Then he will "transfer" money onto your card. The transfer will be from a stolen credit card, hi-jacked paypal account or phished bank account. You are then suppose to withdrawal the money before Amex realizes the transfer was made with stolen money. You are suppose to send the "money" via Western Union or moneygram back to the scammer posing as the "supply company" while you "keep" a small portion. When the credit card/paypal/bank account owner realizes their money is in your account, Amex reverses the transfer now you get the real life job of paying back Amex for all the bank's money you sent to an overseas criminal. Western Union and moneygram do not verify anything on the form the sender fills out, not the name, not the street address, not the country, not even the gender of the receiver, it all means absolutely nothing. The clerk will not bother to check ID and will simply hand off your cash to whomever walks in the door with the MTCN# and question/answer. Neither company will tell the sender who picked up the cash, at what store location or even in what country your money walked out the door. Neither company has any kind of refund policy, money sent is money gone forever. Or the scammer will convince another victim to send their money to your card and the scammer simply drains your card. When that victim realizes he/she was scammed, you get the real life job of paying that victim back. Now that you have responded to a scammer, you are on his 'potential sucker' list, he will try again to separate you from your cash. He will send you more emails from his other free email addresses using another of his fake names with all kinds of stories of being the perfect buyer, great jobs, lottery winnings, millions in the bank and desperate, lonely, sexy singles. He will sell your email address to all his scamming buddies who will also send you dozens of fake emails all with the exact same goal, you sending them your cash via Western Union or moneygram. You could post up the email address and the emails themselves that the scammer is using, it will help make your post more googlable for other suspicious potential victims to find when looking for information. Do you know how to check the header of a received email? If not, you could google for information. Being able to read the header to determine the geographic location an email originated from will help you weed out the most obvious scams and scammers. Then delete and block that scammer. Don't bother to tell him that you know he is a scammer, it isn't worth your effort. He has one job in life, convincing victims to send him their hard-earned cash. Whenever suspicious or just plain curious, google everything, website addresses, names used, companies mentioned, phone numbers given, all email addresses, even sentences from the emails as you might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted online. You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer. 6 "Rules to follow" to avoid most fake jobs: 1) Job asks you to use your personal bank account and/or open a new one. 2) Job asks you to print/mail/cash a check or money order. 3) Job asks you to use Western Union or moneygram in any capacity. 4) Job asks you to accept packages and re-ship them on to anyone. 5) Job asks you to pay visas, travel fees via Western Union or moneygram. 6) Job asks you to buy a Green Dot moneypak or Prepaid card and give the info to anyone. Avoiding all jobs that mention any of the above listed 'red flags' and you will miss nearly all fake jobs. Only scammers ask you to do any of the above. No. Exceptions. Ever. For any reason. If you google "Western Union scam", "fake green dot moneypak card scam", "moneygram payment scam", "fake check payment job fraud" or something similar you will find hundreds of posts from victims and near victims of this type of scam.
