MicroWorkers.com - Is it a Scam? | Not Recommended
Site General History & Info
MicroWorkers will moved from the Legit List to the Not Recommended List for the combined
1. Complaints - For over a year now the feedback about
this site has been different from one person to another. You may say it
is a "controversial" site and that it deserves to be on the Ongoing
Investigations List, but I think we are past that now and that the site
belongs on the Not Recommended List. For one reason is due to the
increasing number of complaints, which can be found at these sources:
2. Lost Pins - This is so outdated and chaotic...in
order to be paid you must request that a pin be mailed to your home
address. So if you are one of those unlucky ones where the pin never
arrives in the mail, you will not be able to cashout. Which is why this
site is receiving so many complaints and contradicting feedback.
3. PayPal Limited - They lost it and never got it back.
Another bad sign.
Update January 7, 2013 : PayPal has returned but I am not sure how long it will last. Their previous
accounts are still showing limited still and I would be careful in relying on a PayPal payment from this site if that is your only choice in getting paid (if you don't use Payza or Moneybookers).
5. Promised Changes - They said the referral program would come back but
in never did. Also that the pin verification would change. These changes
were never made .
6. Payment Delays - I experienced this myself
after I got my pin... supposedly the site pays weekly. I ended up
waiting a month and 25 days to get paid (almost 2 months), and that is after I contacted
several times about my payment. Finally they sent it without an
explanation as to why there was a delay.
You shouldn't have to contact a site repeatedly and ask for a payment
that you rightfully earned.
For some this will be a paying site, and others will say it is a scam.
For me it is a site that is not worth the hassle. It may pay but you
have to jump through obstacles just to get paid, and that is if you are
lucky to have a verified pin. Therefor the site will be moved from the
Legit List to the Not Recommended List.
In my opinion there are other reliable task and job sites out there
where you don't have to deal with all these issues. If you are one of
those who get paid without issue, then I hope you continue to get paid
without any problems, but know that not everyone is having the same
experience as you.
anyone would like to share their experience that they had with this
site, whether it is good or bad, feel free to do so on the
message board on our forum.

Moved from Legit List to the Not Recommended List.

Removed information about referral program from review. Site appears
to be no longer offering a referral program, and removed it without any
notice or explanation. At least you can't find any information about
your referrals in your account since the change was made. The FAQ still
talks about the referral program but it appears to be outdated and not
up to par with the change.
