    6. Litecoin Wallet
    7. PayPal

My Thoughts About the Site:

  1. The signup page of the site has a warning on the home page. It states that you need to disregard any emails that are sent to you asking you to change your password.
  2. The owner of the site hides his identity and refuses to allow anyone to know who he is.
  3. You’ll need to spend 83 hours on the phone in order to earn $10.
  4. You can use the service worldwide, however there I a limited number of countries that you can call.
  5. There are other services like this available online, however, they are scams and have had issues paying people for using these services.
  6. There are many red flags on this site that indicate that the site has problems and the owner of the site doesn’t want to be identified.
  7. The site doesn’t explain to you in full details why you are calling these numbers they have listed on the site.
  8. The owner of the site is earning money from you calling the radio stations and allowing them to play on your phone.
  9. You will be teeing up your landline or your mobile device to listen to the radio stations.
  10. The amount of money you’ll earn for each minute you leave your phone connected to the radio station is very small and it will take you a few months to earn the $10.
  11. The home page of the site reminds me of a landing page. There is no information about the site, how it works, what is expected from you, and an FAQ section that you can check.

Conclusion:

This might be a legitimate site and pay people for using their services. However, the amount of time and unused calling minutes will take you several months to earn $10 from the site. There are too many personal details that you must supply to the company in order to join the site. Furthermore, the warning message on the home page doesn’t give the site too much credibility and entice you to join the site.

You can try this site and they do pay you to make the phone calls to the numbers listed on the site. However, I really wouldn’t recommend that you try this site. There are too many red flags on the sie and if the site was actually a great site, the owner of the site wouldn’t mind having his name associated with the site. The owner of this site hides his identity and doesn’t want anyone to know who he is. It is best to avoid sites like this and find another site to earn from.
