Real Writing Jobs. Beware Its A Scam.

I am going to try to make this as short as possible, stay away from RealWritingJobs.com because the reviews I’ve read are not too pleasing. Although on this website, I try to write reviews of products that deserve to be purchased because of their solid track record, I find that

I should also warn all of you who work hard for your money to not waste it on scam products.

Before I wrote this post, I did contact Clickbank asking them about why with all these negative reviews that RealWritingJobs.com has received that there still an active seller on their network. I’ll post an update when I get a response.fiverr_blog

RealWritingJobs.com promises quick money by finding active participants writing jobs that pay money. It’s another one of those “work from home” scam products that require you to pay a monthly fee for a membership and then you’ll probably make pennies off each article or no money at all. Even if you do make some, you’ll be very lucky to cover your initial monthly membership fee. Anyway, the question I have is “why pay to make money writing articles?” when there are several other creditable websites that will do the same for you without charging you a monthly membership fee right? To keep this short and to the point, here are some reviews that people left:

 

“This site is completely bogus; all it gives you is sites that you could find for free by yourself and only about half an hour of instruction on that for 4.50. I lost money on this site, it is a complete scam. There are plenty of legitimate ways to find short writing gigs; I would try craigslist long before you try this.” 

 

“WARNING WARNING WARNING! Real Writing Jobs website BEWARE. I joined last week and paid a half price rate of $34 for apparently the privilege of membership and access to 1000′s of writing jobs all over the world. The website clearly states that they offer a 60 day money back guarantee. I have sent 5 emails to their customer support email address for refund and cancellation with no response whatsoever. I am furious that I allowed myself the temptation of earning a few extra $$$s. I hope this comment helps someone else who may be tempted – DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY! ” 

 

“I bought a trial membership of this site 5.5 Euro. They only offer what you can find for free on the freelancer sites. I am not satisfied because there are not many offers for my Country. Besides that they don’t have strong support, because I do not get responses to any of my messages. But they are always sending messages, notification to buy back membership. I still did not get a refund.”

 

“I can’t believe this has a B rating! I joined this site through an e-mail. Of course I was wondering if it was true or not. Do not give them your PayPal. They will take money out. When I signed up they took money off my PayPal for I don’t know what reason. This site does not offer you anything, just a couple training videos and ways to get online writing jobs but this is not a site to join. Real writing jobs is a SCAM! They just wanted me to give them money and when I sent in a ticket and they did not reply.”

 

Anyways, I was going to purchase a membership but decided not to because as always I like to read reviews before investing any money into a product. If the reviews are good, I’ll purchase the product, use it, and then write a review on ranktactics.com. This case was a little different since my initial reaction to RealWritingJobs.com was not too favorable.

For all of you looking for some extra income writing articles and getting paid, than visit these websites which are “free” to join and you’ll get hired to do work for bloggers or companies that need content written for marketing or their active visitors. I have used these websites personally and have been very happy hiring and being hired to get work done. It does require some effort so work at building your resume or portfolio.

These are the 3 that I recommend:

Elance.com

Elance.com is free to join and allows you to earn some good money if you have the right experience. If you don’t, than not to worry because all you need to do is find “1” person willing to give you a chance and then you can start building your reputation.

I’ve personally used them several times for article writing and wasn’t disappointment with the quality of work. I think I paid around $7 an article with unlimited changes to the content for 10 days.

Freelancer.com

Freelancer.com is another very popular website; however I wasn’t too happy with the search function. Had a large project with them and the quality of work delivered was satisfactory. I would recommend if you’re hiring someone to do work for you, than keep the project at a very low minimum. My project was $9,000 and the quality; well I wasn’t too happy with. Needed help so I contacted customer support and they weren’t too helpful.

If you’re looking to find work it’s great because I made some decent money. Another problem is that once you get paid by the employer, you have to wait 15 days to get your money transferred to your PayPal account. It’s a great place to start and it’s free to join!
