Paid to review (adult) websites - scam?

I just applied for a job reviewing websites and got this auto response:

Hi there,

Thanks for your interest in the website reviewer position. We are currently looking for honest people with a keen eye for detail to visit various adult sites online and write the things they like and dislike about each. We will require 12 reviews per week which are due by 2pm every Friday.

The starting wage for this post is £350 per week which rises after 6 months. No previous experience is required for this position. The only requirement we have is that you submit a 100-word review of the members area at a pre-selected site (SITE GIVEN HERE). The website has a free trial so don't worry about any costs.

Please submit this review to EMAIL ADDRESS within 48 hours if you're interested in this home-based position. Unfortunately, due to the large volume of mail we receive we can ONLY respond to those who submit their test review. As much as we'd like to be able to reply to all emails, the number of timewasters who apply means this is just not possible.

Thanks for your time

Now from what I can see there is no cost to do this but I imagine (having not checked) when you go to the adult site it promoted, you may have to register (for 'free') with a credit card and there will be some small print hidden away with a way in which they can start charging the card after a day or so.

But just in case it was genuine I wanted to ask what others think and if you've seen anything like this before?

Unless you have a lot of time, money, enjoy looking at porn all day, and don't mind being ripped off, I wouldn't touch this with a 10-foot pole. It's highly unlikely you'll get paid anything, much less 350 pounds/week.

Re: Paid to review (adult) websites - scam?

The simplest scenario here is that they just want to steal your credit card number.

The "adult web site" they want you to "review" is actually set up by the scammers.

As soon as they get your credit card number, they go on a gigantic shopping spree, and have a big party.
