Michele, an I’ve Tried That reader and watchdog, furnishes today’s warning.

I need to tell you about the biggest scam I have ever seen. The site is http://www.DataEntryPortal.com

If you want to see a scam to its fullest, this is it. I paid $57.00 and all I got was some links to other Data Entry companies that you have to pay more money…That was it! I could have found the same content and more by doing a search on Google for “Data Entry Jobs” So I contacted them because they show a “Risk free Guarantee” on their site which is the only reason I would have tried it anyways. BUT, when I requested a refund they said to read the fine print of their “Terms of Use” which states no refunds. Very deceptive advertisement. I see why they would not give the money back because if you see what you get for $57.00, they would have 100% of their customers demanding refunds.

So what does a “Risk Free Guarantee” mean when the real policy is “No Refunds?” It means that you are guaranteed to take a risk, and the guarantee won’t cost you anything. You know how you can pay extra for an extended guarantee on your car or anything you buy at Best Buy? Same concept, except this guarantee is free. Get it? “I guarantee you’ll take a risk! This guarantee costs you nothing!”

Or something. Sheesh. Thanks for the warning, Michele!

There's only ONE program I really recommend. It helped me turn my 'hobby' into a $10,000+ per month money making machine. Click here for the exact formula I followed.

    Hi there to everybody. You all want to earn money online thats good I am earning doing data entry. But the thing is noone finds job for me I find the job for me. Data entry is genuine but you need to have good typing skills you will be paid according to page or word you type. Dont pay money search for companies vacancies and apply you will get the job but there are very few.
    If you want to check the company is legal or not then check it at http://www.whois.net its a domain lookup program so how you can know the genuinity is that after you look up for the website then look at its detail if its a genuine companythen it should have registered in its company name. If its fake then its registered in their personnel name.

    Dataentryportal.com got an “F” rating from the Better Business Bureau:

    “We strongly question the company’s reliability for reasons such as that they have failed to respond to complaints, their advertising is grossly misleading, they are not in compliance with the law’s licensing or registration requirements, their complaints contain especially serious allegations, or the company’s industry is known for its fraudulent business practices.”

    File a complaint at FTC and BBB. File a dispute at PayPal or AlertPay if you sent money via these channels. The site owner is now being monitored by the authorities. They just need more complainants against Data Entry Portal. I filed a claim at PayPal too. The site owner even had the nerve to escalate the case. PayPal will not cover intangible items so they deferred the case. I believe Data Entry Portal is aware of this loophole in PayPal’s policies so they are abusing it.

    Hi … may be this is too late, but I just want to share with you all. YES, Data Entry Portal is a SCAM!!! I lost my money that was sent on August, 8. Forget about the login credential and all those things that they will send when we’ve sent them the money, they don’t even bother answering my e-mails (more than 7) asking if they have received the money yet.
    All the reply e-mails are automatics reply and it is not monitored.

    I feel so bad. Well, there is more about it actually, but I just don’t wanna remember it. Hurt so bad!!!
