A true hall of shame honoree, dataentrybusiness.com continues to rack up the victims. In the comments section of that post, Claudette writes:
i tried dataentry business for my son who wanted to make some money while he was studying in London. the thing is a scam and we found this ou the hard way when we checked our credid card account and found that yahoosearch had started deducting 30.00 every 3 days from our account via paypal. He was hesitant at first and wondered why they wanted his credit card account before signing up, but we thought that it was so that he could be paid. I had to put a block on my account so that even i cannot use it now.. i called yahoosearch and they promised to refund my money. however when i tried to contact dataentry business for my $49.95 refund, they sent me that same letter which they sent Julia. aparently, Yahoosearch did indeed tried to contact us to discuss the problem. and when i called them concerning cancellation and refunding the paypal deductions they promised to comply. they have not yet done so. now i am convinced that there really is no legitimate dataentry business online. cant you do somethiig about ths. why must people get away with this kind of scam.
