5 Important Ways to Spot a Data Entry Scam

There are literally hundreds of data entry programs floating online now a days. Unfortunately I’ve come to know a lot of them are just copy cats of the real data entry gurus. These are the guys that truly can show you how to earn lots of money online with simple data entry. However, Some of these people have sadly just copied someone elses website – Sometimes I’ve seen even word for word. The scary thing is some people happen to have great skills in building websites buts that’s all they did. There is no real personal knowledge behind it. That’s why it’s a great idea to email the company first and ask them a specific question about the program before joining. you see the copy cats will not know how to answer a lot of your questions because they don’t know what the heck they are doing!

Then you’ve also got the guys that do have the knowledge but they are so busy taking your money that they don’t really care to help you at all. Those ones are easy to spot just by simply seeing if they respond to an email in a timely manner. Try 1 or 2 emails just to be safe.

The type of data entry I am talking about is probably one of the best if not thee best ways to make money from home. I have heard reported earnings range from $200-$500 and up on a daily basis and this is a real estimate. So it’s not the program you really have to worry about being a scam, it’s the person behind the company, the one who’s doing the mentoring.

In case you are not familiar with this type of data entry I will quickly explain how it works. You will simply be typing up ads for web companies for the purpose of
drumming up business for them. Then in return you get a hefty commission, usually from 50-75% which is quite a bit. Imagine your ad is generating multiple sales daily. That could be a lot of money!

The cost to join a program like this is about $50 and can be made back fairly quick with some work.


1. Make sure they have a way to be contacted such as an email address or contact form.

2. A good data entry company should ALWAYS have a FAQS page.

3. A company that guarantees you’ll make a specific amount of money is lying.
(No company can guarantee this.)

4. Make sure they have an earning disclaimer page. If their honest and make no
promises of wealth then that’s a great sign of legitimacy.

5. Send them an email and see if they respond. (A lot of them will not!)

If you are seriously in need of extra income and are interested in learning this type of work then you will definitely want to check out a company called “Typist Jobs” owned by a Ruth Cleven. This is by far one of the better mentors I’ve come across and the company passes the scam test by far!
