I sometimes come across these money from home schemes

and I'm tempted to think, maybe this one is possible.

Maybe I can make 6 figures clicking my mouse or whatever. I made about $20 an hour at Xbox. This claims $47.

This smells iffy,

but might it be worth it? One in a million? Will they be collecting my credit card numbers?

Here

Thanks

Go with your initial feeling, it was right.  There is no easy money.

You can try mechanical turk https://www.mturk.com/mturk/  I tested it out a few years back and figured you can do $8 to $10 per hour if you work fast enough.

I am pleased to have this confirmed.
Thanks. I have a one-time reputation in my family for doing questionably moronic things with money. I once paid this douche to help me make a band's music / audio / video / info / site / URL automated construction page.
 I only found out too late that yahoo had it anyway. And, he had no clue. He lied in his skills paragraph, and insisted I *not* use FLV for the vids. Thank god my dad inquired as to my latest projects and he smelled a rat.

Well. It is what it is, and I don't feel like another mistake.
