How do they cleverly make people to accept the job
When people are directed to these websites they see something like this
These websites are so created that they look completely legit and many people think that they can truly earn money from these schemes. The process of recruitment is shown to be totally legit. One can surely not be able to guess if that is a scam or not. Believing that they are lucky to get such a job and earn quick money people happily agree to start working for them.
The hidden Conditions
When you are selected you are told that you will need to pay some advance money for security purposes so that you will not leave anytime you want. This amount can be anywhere between 3000 to 5000 rupees. This is the “First Red Alert” you should notice. If someone is asking for money in advance they are probably going to scam you or going to use it as leverage against you in every way possible. They will promise to return the entire amount whenever you wish, but that is never the case
They will demand more money
When you are working for a decent amount of time and you realise that you are not getting enough phone numbers to send messages. You realize that the money they promised you will make, you are not even making fractions of it. So, you decide to leave and stop the work. Because you are not getting returns from it. This is exactly the position in which the scammers wanted you to be in!
They will now tell you that, it is okay if you want to leave. But you will need to deposit more money as it is their policy that the candidate must have a higher amount of total pending balance. Now this is definitely the thing they did not tell you while joining clearly and wrote somewhere you will not notice in the 2 page terms and conditions. This is the “Second Red Alert”.
Now that you have already paid them in advance and also worked for them a couple of weeks, you will pay them the amount they requested and promise yourselves that you will never see their faces again! But that is not how it works, you will desperately try to reach them!
Finally they will block You!
You have paid them the amount they requested and demanded your money back. They will completely agree to you and tell you that it will take some time for the amount to be credited in your account due to some of their procedures.
You are happy that you are finally out from that job with all of your money. The scammers are even more happy that you did everything as they requested you to do! After a few days you call them to inquire about your money only to find out that you are blocked. You go to the website you signed up and find out no such domain is currently online. Voila! You just lost a lot of money where you were thinking of earning a lot of money.
Why SMS Sending Jobs were and always be scams!
Anyone who knows very little about bots and automated softwares will tell you that there is no need for people to send even thousands of messages. Yes, the messages you get regularly on your inbox are sent out by bots which were designed to do the task. The involvement of people in this process is only to develop this bot. Which for sure a person with coding knowledge is required and not a matrix passed out guy.
The other thing where people are needed is to provide this bot with a list of phone numbers. This too is done by the officials, because you need to buy databases with thousands of phone numbers included. These jobs which are advertised everywhere are just made to scam you!
Never think that making money is easy!
That is exactly what this SMS Sending Jobs Scam is all about. These scammers will not force you to accept their job but they will tickle your emotions and your desire to earn a lot of money. That too without a lot of work! Cherry on top right? Get this straight; if you are ever willing to earn money, loads of money you will have to put in a lot of effort to do so. If you were going to earn a lot of money by sending messages, everyone else would have done it too.The money you earn is directly proportional to the efforts you are putting in your work, unless and until you are not a Scammer!
