How it is Supposed to Work:

These ads state you can make hundreds of dollars reading your emails, viewing ads, or surfing the interenet. Usually, they are "required" to charge a small fee in order to ensure that only the most interested people are given the information. These sites offer all types of actions you can paid for: clicking ads, reading emails, surfing the internet or participating in offers.

The Reality:

You can make money reading emails. Not $100s a day. You'll be lucky if you make 1¢ per email you read. The trick to doing it is finding a reliable company. After all, you don't want to do a lot of work only to discover that you're not going to get paid. Also, you should never pay to join this program. Also, beware of "free" offers that charge for shipping and handling. Make sure you're not paying out more than you are taking in if you participate in an offer.
