Is this the real deal?

but it might not, and I suspect that you will need to be in America to find out. There are loads of these schemes, and although it sounds great on the face of it you'll find that all of them will say "well, it depends on how much we made that month" when asked how much you would get paid.

My advice? Don't waste your time.

Like all schemes. Some people can make mega bucks, others may lose mega bucks. At the end of the day, it is your choice as to whether the time and risks are worth it.

It seesm kosher but I wpould suspect it is similar to the many referal schemes thast are popular in the States. Playing online you will only get credited about 2.5p - 8p/hour. Money can be made from getting friends to join underneath you and you get 10% of their income (.25p - .8p/hour).

Some very cynical people would shout 'PYRAMID SCHEME';-)). It does not take a genius to work out that the hourly rate is not going to fund a wild life or even any life. If people are housebound then this may be the only way to 'earn' extra money and they have my sympathy. However, I would suggest that if any able-bodied person is desperate for cash that they get off their lazy butts and work in a bar or get a newspaper delivery round/ clean cars etc.

I know 2 people that participate in similar lame schemes. They are both more than capable of working behind a bar for 25 squid/evening but they prefer to sit on their butts, rattling away at a computer, for pence per evening. I do despair at times.
