    The modus operandi of scam data entry is that without giving any details on the kind of data they just say, “typing data into a couple of fields”; and demand a registration fee. Instead of the jobs, they send an eBook asking to write ads. This is called affiliate marketing. These scams have three ways of misleading; first, data entry scams do not pay to enter names or addresses into database.
