To my knowlegde these online jobs are very hard to get and even if you get, some might get the work done from you and not pay. so its very tough to get a genuine client. one of my friend is doin online jobs from a site called ODesk, but it requires you to be online when you are doing the job. Just google it for more info

My wife and I had explored the option of working over the internet a few years ago. She is now a fulltime freelancer now getting all her projects through the internet. Yes, one has to be extremely careful as there are lots of people who promise and disappear without paying. This can be taken care of through checks put into place.

But from what I have seen, this is not as easy as it is portrayed. THere are no week days or weekends, just timelines. Also, one needs to be very self driven as one cant afford to let any distractions come between you and the job. Having a backup becomes very important if you have to go for a vacation or emergency.Plus, it does take a while to get established.

Anyone familiar with www.netsurveryjobs.com ? 'happens to be a madurai-based org.

IF so, any feedback about them? 'couldn't find any negative stuff about them on googling so far. But still not too sure.

This site is a fraud. First they would ask you to pay to join the work.

Later, you would be asked to get others to join before you are eligible for work.

True. One of my friend happened to earn a little through them.
Odesk.com sure is a trusted site.

Thanks.
Hmm....someone I know of said he joined this site. But so far hasn't mentioned that he's required to get others join as yet. 'doesn't say so in their website either. But then, things can work out differently at a later stage!
Let's wait and see....!

IMHO, any site which asks for money to join is fake. Even if it is to cover 'incidental expenses' or a 'business kit', it should be refundable in case you decide to return it.

It is a good thread. But once again every where they tell no need of any fee but at the end they land up with 9.99 dollars etc. If we think of over night millionaire it is not going to help. Those who are interested go on search you will get a genuine online job provider. It might happen tomorrow or may be when you become old. Be prepared for the speculation jobs. I consider tis too is a speculation job.
