@Michelle Keiser , sometimes it's really difficult to spot a scam site, but sometimes it's really easy. I would avoid any site that expects you to pay for the "privilege" of earning money there as well as any site that has a really high cash-out level. I believe that there are sites that offer $1 to click on an advert but don't pay until you've reached something ridiculous like $1000. Those can't possibly be legit. On the other hand sites like Bubblews and it's clones probably didn't set out to be scams, but by trying to pay too much they used models that weren't sustainable and eventually some of their members lost out on their hard-earned money. Bubblews wrote off a lot of payments, alienating many of their members, but continues with some loyal members who were prepared to take a massive cut in their earnings. Other sites have simply disappeared. EliteVisitors claimed to be cheated by one of their admin and moved to a new site called BestWriters. One month later they announced that they were losing money and couldn't pay their members. For now they are continuing as a site that doesn't offer payment, and they too have some loyal members who have stayed on. I could go on, but you get the picture.
