What is alphajob.info about? Well today we are going to find out because a lot of people are calling it a scam, now i don’t like that word unless something is blatantly trying to rip you off then scam would be a reasonable word to use , but unfortunately too many people throw that word around without any real grounds for using it.
So i thought it was about time i took a look at this and gave you my insight into it. It should be interesting.
PRICE: Free to join
so what is alphajob.info about
Lets start off with the sales page, they claim it’s the ‘easiest way to make money’ you even get a $25 joining bonus which i’ve never heard of before in my life, perhaps $5 or $10, but $25? that sounds like a lot to me, that is until you realise you can only get that when your account reaches a massive $300. That’s a ridiculous amount of money to get to just to be able to cash out.
And it goes on to say you will get paid $10 per task, now these are stated as small tasks that will take just 30 seconds to complete so it’s got the potential to earn $1200 per hour…awesome.
Before i take the plunge i decide to have a look around their site and click on the FAQs link……that doesn’t take you anywhere, so no answers to any questions you might have.
Ok so i click on support…..that doesn’t take anywhere either, term and conditions….nope, things are beginning to smell a bit fishy.
Now something that i like to do is a Google search of any images on the sales page to see if these people are who they say they are. Well the guy on the sales page, Joshia Frauhmin must be really shy because that photo of him isn’t him, it’s a stock photo anyone can purchase from places like shutterstock.
Further reading of the sales page starts to get my spidey sense tingling even more. Let’s be fair the website doesn’t look bad, it actually looks good, but if this was a bona fide website operated by a big company then i am sure that good grammar would be of the utmost importance.
Take a quick look at these 2 screenshots:
Normally i wouldn’t go any further, but for the point of this review i’m going to sign up.
the sign up
So once we hit that register button we’re taken to where you supply your details, now i have to point out that their spelling of address (spelt adress) is not something i’ve ever seen before, a quick Google and it turns out it’s Swedish.
Anyway they want you to fill in a user name, a password, an e-mail address, but not only that they want your physical address as well and they want your full name. Now that’s quite alarming to me.
So not wanting to do that i decide to fill it all out with complete and utter gibberish, didn’t make an ounce of sense.
Guess what, they accepted it! No i didn’t believe it either, but it’s true, i’m in.
what do they want you to do
So now i’m on the inside i can see exactly what it is these small 30 second tasks will be that are going to earn me $10 each time i do one.
I was pretty shocked actually as to the lack of anything in there
That’s virtually it, you have a few member guidelines, but apart from that what you see above is it.
Now you can probably just make out what your small tasks are, but in case you can’t, i’ll tell you.
Are you ready for this? You might not take in the complexity of what it is you have to do first time round so you might want to read this part a few times….i’m only joking that’s me being sarcastic LOL.
Your task is to start posting your referral link all over the place, i mean all over the place, Facebook, Youtube, Google plus, forums, chat rooms, blogs, twitter anywhere you can post a link.
And that’s it
They do give you one tip and that’s to share your link with all your friends……your friends are not going to appreciate you spamming the hell out of them with this rubbish.
So each person you refer through your link will earn you between $5 – $10 supposedly, now that’s the first time they’ve mentioned $5.
before we move forward I’d just like to bring to your attention a complaint i found:
That’s pretty sad if you ask me.
so how do they make money
Let’s think about this for a second one person is going to try and meet the cashout threshold right, that means getting at least 30 people @ $10 or 60 people @ $5 to sign up, now them people are going to be putting in their details and where do you think all them juicy details are going to end up? That’s right they sell them.
Your details including where you live are being sold to the highest bidder, whoever that might be. So be very careful with the information you give out at any time not just to these people.
In the process of this review my research turned up several things not least that whoever is behind this company has other sites doing exactly the same thing! how worrying is that.
Same site, different name. Now that’s not the only other one either, there’s a number of them out there.
ok how do you get paid
So you still want to sign up and try and earn some money, ok how are you going to get paid? Good question.
In the members area there are some member guidelines and there is the question ‘when will i get paid’ which is quite a telling question i think, anyway they go on to answer this with the lines:
“the minimum payout is $300 and you can get paid through Paypal Western Union, Money gram, or bank transfer”
but let me ask you this and it’s a fairly important question: If you cannot find any links on the site to take you to somewhere where you can talk to someone either by email or Skype how the hell are you going to give them your payment details?
Now think about it people, how are they going to get your money to you?
I strongly believe that they have no intention of ever paying you. Let’s look into this a bit deeper, they get paid for the names and addresses that they harvest and then pay you $10 so they would have to be earning a fair bit more from each one in order to pay you that.
Now while some leads do command a fairly large price for example a healthcare lead will cost around $65, however for a general lead like this it will cost around $15 – $20 per lead so i’m pretty sure they’re not going to split that with you.
lets wrap this up
So remember at the beginning i told you i didn’t like to use the word scam unless it was absolutely necessary, well this is one of those times.
If you ever see something like that sales page, it doesn’t matter if it’s not the same name, run, run as fast as you can and don’t look back, ok that might be a bit over the top, but you get my meaning don’t you.
Anyway i think it goes without saying that i won’t be sharing my link with anyone, not even my worst enemy.
I have to say that this must be bringing them in an absolute fortune all at the expense of people like you and people like me who just want a way to earn a bit of extra money.
Well i was lucky enough to find somewhere that taught me how to make money online legitimately and can be very proud to be a part of and if you want to know more about it then simply click on the banner below to find out. You simply won’t regret it, i haven’t.
In my opinion it’s a pretty sad state of affairs, but what do you think, have i got it all wrong? Let me know your thoughts below.
