Thumbs down Minuteworkers Scam/Fraud

I've not been to the forums for a bit, but a recent experience has brought me here to warn my fellow WAHMs about the site Minute Workers - Turning Your Minutes Into Money. In case you didn't already know, it is a scam and/or fraud. The employers will post jobs that require proof that either you cannot get or will just deny that you did it right. The appeals process is also a sham. 90% of the time, they side with the employer even if you can prove that you completed the job as instructed.

I have been working on Microworkers.com and have not had this problem but a couple of times. Of the five jobs I submitted to Minuteworkers, 4 of them were denied stating I didn't provide proper proof and/or complete the job. My ratio for Microworkers is 53/3 while my ratio with Minuteworkers is 1/4...it's not worth your time and effort.

Steer clear of this site friends! They do not operate ethically and might not even be legal.

Sorry to hear you ran into this ShellyRenee.

It sounds like Microworkers is a better site, especially based on the ratios you provided.

Thanks for letting us know.
