I wrote a post regarding a little data entry scam called FromHomeDataEntry.com a little over a year ago. Since then, my warning has risen to the number one search engine result for FromHomeDataEntry. You search Google for that term and my site will appear warning you that it’s a scam and THEN their site appears below mine.
I must have foiled their little scam somewhat, because they’re back with a new site and I fully intend to take over the number one result with this page once again. The new site is called SecretHomeDataEntry.com. They aren’t the most creative bunch for sure. They changed their name and are using a different design, but not much else has changed. These are still the same scammers behind FromHomeDataEntry and they still do not pay people to do data entry.
Don’t Work for SecretHomeDataEntry.com
SecretHomeDataEntry promises to pay you $10 per “data entry” assignment you complete for them. You can start out with a free account and perform 10 assignments for a total of $100, but for some reason, you cannot request a payout until YOU PAY THEM to upgrade your account to a “pro” account. This costs at least $24.95 with an “unlimited” account costing $49.95.
Unfortunately, after you complete your assignments, PAY THEM to upgrade your account, and become eligible to receive a payment, you’ll be notified that your work was not sufficient, that significant errors were still found, and that your work contract will be terminated. This means that you will not receive a payment for the work you performed and you can no longer work for them. They rob you of your upgrade fee, close your account, and kick you off the site. You basically pay them money to kick you in the ass.
I wrote my review of FromHomeDataEntry back in 2009. Since then, I have not found ONE single person who has been paid by these scammers. Every single story is exactly the same. Users pay to upgrade and then are immediately denied payment and their accounts closed once they request a paycheck. Past members have even been threatened by owner “Tina Cooper” for harassment for repeatedly asking for what should be rightfully theirs.
You can read my full review of FromHomeDataEntry.com by clicking here. Remember, it’s the same company running the same scam. They just changed their name.
If you pull up the Whois records for both domain names, you’ll see the following information for both:
2701 California Avenue
Seattle, WA 98116
In fact, SecretHomeDataEntry is even listed as being hosted on FromHomeDataEntry’s servers. It’s disturbingly obvious this is the exact same company running the exact same scam.
Stay away from SecretHomeDataEntry.com
Your best bet is to just stay far away from this program. You’ll lose your $50 and you WILL NOT be paid for your work. Help me spread the word so I can top them once again in search engine rankings. You can bet I’ll be sure to top their next scam as well.
