Don’t Waste Thousands of Rupees on Online Clicking Jobs

Ever heard of online jobs, CAPTHA jobs, ad clicking jobs, ad posting jobs or similar sort of other jobs that require initial registration worth thousands of rupees? If no, then you are probably not aware of one of the biggest on-going scams in the country.

But those who have heard about such jobs, and they are planning to get registration (that usually costs anywhere from Rs. 5,000 to Rs. 100,000 or more) then please don’t waste your money as its a fraud and you will only end-up wasting your hard earned money.

Keep reading to know the details that how fraudsters track people.

How It works?

A company — usually a team of 2-3 persons — with an office and some official documents, such as NTN etc., advertises to local community that anyone with very basic computer knowledge can get ad clicking jobs (also called home based online jobs) with monthly salary of Rs. 10,000, Rs. 20,000 up to Rs. 100,000.

You will see a lot of pamphlets claiming that anyone with very basic computer knowledge can get ad clicking jobs (also called home based online jobs) with monthly salary of Rs. 10,000, Rs. 20,000 up to Rs. 50,000 but salary is dependent on the initial registration fee.

More upfront fee will mean higher monthly salary. Monthly salary is usually set at around 50% of your upfront registration fee.

These fraudsters even advertise in papers, have a look at following ad:

ad_1

When you call them, you will come to know about registration fee, which you can pay and get started with a monthly salary.

Here are usual registration fee structures and corresponding monthly salaries for such online jobs/adclicking jobs:

  • Registration Fee Rs. 5,000 = Monthly Salary: Rs. 2,500
  • Registration Fee Rs. 10,000 = Monthly Salary: Rs. 5,000
  • Registration Fee Rs. 15,00 = Monthly Salary: Rs. 7,500
  • Registration Fee Rs. 25,000 = Monthly Salary: Rs. 12,5000
  • Registration Fee Rs. 40,000 = Monthly Salary: Rs. 20,000
  • Registration Fee Rs. 50,000 = Monthly Salary: Rs. 25,000
  • Registration Fee Rs. 100,000 = Monthly Salary: Rs. 50,000

Not to mention, registration fee or the corresponding monthly salary for online jobs can vary from case to case.

After paying the registration fee, the company will give you an account on a website that will allow you to login and start your daily work. This work usually includes clicking on ads, entering CAPTCHAs and so on. To cut the long story short, users are asked to do dummy stuff that won’t mean much.

At the end of the month, you will get your promised salary and that will cover half of your initial investment and you can carry on with your job into second month.

During this period, especially after getting your first salary, you are going to tell about this job to all of your friends and family which will include at least 4-5 unemployed individuals who would want to do such an easy job while being at home.

Not only this, you may also think that getting another registration might double your incoming and you may end-up buying another account for yourself, with higher registration probably.

Soon, your FnF will also get themselves registered (by paying registration fee obviously) and this chain will start until the company will have hundreds of registrations coming every month.

As per estimates, here’s the supposed cash-flow situation of the company you are working with:

  • First Month: 10 Registrations (with Rs. 10,000 for each registration and Rs. 5,000 monthly salary)
    • Cash in hand: Rs. 100,000
    • Month Salaries: Rs. 50,000 (or around)
    • Cash carried forward: Rs. 50,000
  • Second Month: 20 Registrations (with Rs. 10,000 for each registration)
    • Cash in Hand: Rs. 50,000 (carried forward from previous month) + Rs. 200,000 from current month’s registrations
    • Monthly Salaries: 150,000 (30 persons)
    • Cash carried froward: Rs. 250,000-Rs. 150,000: Rs. 100,000
  • Third Month: 50 Registrations (with Rs. 10,000 for each registration)
    • Cash in Hand: Rs. 100,000 (carried forward from previous month) + Rs. 500,000 from current month’s registrations
    • Monthly Salaries: Rs. 400,000 (80 persons)
    • Cash carried forward: 600,000-400,000= Rs. 200,000
  • This goes on and on.

In this example, we assumed that registration fee is Rs. 10,000 and monthly salary is Rs. 5,000. But in reality, registration fee is set around Rs. 25,000 and salary is set around Rs. 12,500.

Now if you see, the essential part for any company to keep this business running is about getting new registrations. That’s how they will pay the salaries.

Now if you see, the essential part for any company to keep this business running is about getting new registrations. That’s how they will pay the salaries. But considering the unemployment rate in our country, and a good monthly salary for almost everyone (against a small upfront fee that can be recovered in just two months), who wouldn’t go and get the registration?

Things go amazing for everyone until one day, (usually on pay-day after 8-12 months) everybody is stunned as this internet job company is no-more there, office is vacated and there’s no sign of the company, which fled away without letting anyone know.

One day — after several months — you will be greeted with an empty office and ultimately knowing that company ran away with millions of rupees in their accounts

By this time, the fraudster company, that you had registered with had at least few million rupees in their account and they will never return back. This running away is the main ROI for fraudsters and that’s how they make money.

Some (old customers) might have recovered their registration fee, but majority would have lost the money that had paid as registration fee.

Things to Note

  • Companies offering online jobs, ad clicking jobs, or other internet jobs are usually strangers, however, they employ local resources as front-end of the company.
  • Since such companies have to run-away one day, a local resident wouldn’t do such a job. If you see a friend operating such a company, then ask for the real-owner — who would indeed be a stranger to you (and your local friend).
  • Whatever job you do would make no money to the company. Browsing web-pages, or entering CAPTCHAs doesn’t make money. Even if your online job providers tells you so, its a lie.
  • There is no job in the world that requires initial registration fee. Anyone asking for registration fee is indeed working on above mentioned model and must be avoided.

Not to mention, this fraudulent business is flourishing throughout the country and every small/big town of the country has at least few such fraud companies working on the same model to mint people’s pocket. We urge law enforcement agencies to give due attention to this matter.

So here’s the idea: Never ever register with any company that asks for up-front registration fee for offering you online jobs. They are simply fake. If you know someone doing this, tell him/her the same. Spread the word and let everyone know.

  • hamid

    i also wasted 50000+ on it

    • Waqar Ahmad Butt

      but i get benefit from it

      • aamir7

        So, the idea is that you might have recovered the registration fee as apparently you started working with someone in early days, but those whom you tell later on, and who might get registered will lose money.

        • Ali

          aamir7 you are right

        • ilyas

          One of my friend got involved in it. He started with one ID when he got more income he purchased more ID’s he also perused may other people for the ID’s they were in Double figure then one day Company ran away. I read in the news paper some persons have been arrested but recovey is question mark.
          Greed of the people is the real cause of such scams.

  • Indeed I have even seen offices of these fraudsters having a label of Online Clicking Jobs. They are creating hurdles for those who are earning their living through legit ways. Its the major reason of Google’s crackdown on Adsense accounts in 2011. That crackdown closed the major income streams for many bloggers working legally.

    • aamir7

      We specifically warned Pakistanis about this adsense scam here: https://propakistani.pk/2009/03/25/how-people-in-pakistan-are-teaching-people-to-illegally-earn-through-adsense/
      We had warned that Google will go hard if that isn’t stopped. But unfortunately,we don’t learn from advises, we learn from experiences.

  • Suhaib Malik

    Very nice article Amir bhai, I also warn people who ask me about these sort of jobs, the thing is these people won’t read reviews and bloga before paying thesw fraudsters. I suppose any NGO or group of people should come forward and advertise on print ads about these scams so that masses can be aware of it. Would love to participate in this cause if required.

    Well you are correct about ptc/clicking sites they all goes scam as far as captcha jobs are concerned they are real i have been doing this for more than 3 years and earning monthly over 5000rs just 1-1.30 hours of work daily if you sit more obviously you will earn more.

    • aamir7

      You are lucky to have found a legitimate job. But their working model is like below:

      You browse website — enter CAPTCHA to ensure that its human and you have seen the page — and in return your company gets the money from website-publishers. These webmasters pay for traffic.

      Company gives you a cut (which is usually small and not so huge as promised by these local fraudsters). Such companies are usually called traffic exchanges.

      But the matter of the fact is that such legitimate companies are one in thousands.

  • Guy Chauhan

    i helped a friend with this in getting the ID. paid 50k and the ID was of 150k. ended up wastin it. as the “company” cclicking.com . these guyz had their offices in rawalpindi and islamabad. we got after em and there was nothing, too late, other offices in the vicinity said that they packed up and gone.
    to attract middle class (middle class is as always, struggling) they’d, for first month will pay em some remitences but not even like the 1/3 of the 1/3 of the whole amount of ID but this’d help em in gaining some confidence. so you know some people (jobless people) would get hasty and like my friends have bought IDs of worth 1m (OH MY GOD!) and more than half of it was borrowed. yeah he is in trouble now but so far everything is fine. May Allah help him. and well i lost my 50k, as you said “Hard earned money”.

  • Shabaz

    simple rule, i am still earning from it. every company will stay at-least a month, i keep track on every new site, when they started i registered my money will recover in half of that month, and after a month, or 2 i get extra money. the rule is start early, never recommend a friend (others are doing so your fnf are not required).

    • aamir7

      But its not right thing to do bro — I mean you aren’t adding any value for the money you are paid. I am not someone who can issue fatwas, but this money won’t be of any value to you or your family.

    Great article brother. Jazak Allah. A friend of mine also told me about this and he was already working with them. I gave the so called company a call but their website and the person on the phone sounded a little off to me. Not to mention the too good to be true offers. So i just kept away from it.

  • Much needed article indeed! The publishing of ads like these should be banned, Newspaper agencies should not print such ads which at fist sight looks fraudulent

  • hasan awan

    i also invested in similar business in 2010 while i was in United Kingdom. i spent over 3000 GBP. i was so stubborn to make extra money that i even lost my hard earned huge amount of money i started with 10 pounds. then i kept getting sunked into that dark hole. i learnt my lesson! do not trust them! there’s no such thing as easy money on internet!

  • asif

    Well one of my needy friend lost thousands on it.. One example is incomepk. But he still invest in these things and never stop.. Because he cant walk n not enough educated to communicate.

  • Nouman Younas

    Nice informative post…. i also lost minimal amount in this scam :)

    but now I am facing a BIG issue..

    when i search for freelancer Writers/designers, etc for my online work, most of them dont trust us due to this fraudulent jobs hype in market…

    either we have to find someone from our own circle or we have to go for platform like odesk, elance where we have to pay more.

    this should be address

  • Waqar Ahmad

    yes there are thousands of scams on internet i lost more than 50000 rupees.
    only few good honest sites are there.
    if anyone serious can connect with me on [email protected]
    i will tell you about legal honest jobs, free of cost.

  • As I am freelancing since year, people always asked me about these companies, and I always said to stay away from these, even after my warning, two of my friends got the “accounts” and they not even recovered their initial deposits. The article is about fixed salary after initial registration, but there are lots of companies which don’t offer fixed salary and give per click price, so more you pay for the account initially (or later) the more money you get from each click… They lure the simple/greedy/small city guys with their confidence, well decorated offices, female staff. I have also noticed them showing online verification links for their “registered company” from govt. offices. For me even if someone get small benefit from it, it’s not worth the time. Better invest some time and money in getting some skills and then earning legitimately via freelancing.

  • M. Mansoor Haddad
