    "Get paid to play video games"

    I want to pursue that kind of job. (They really do exist.)

    But do you think something like this is a scam?: http://www.only4gamers.com/signup.html

    Thank you in advance.

    If they are going to pay you for this service, why would they charge you first? Seriously, who does that shit?

    100% scam.

    The only way to make money is SELLING the instructions, not FOLLOWING them.

    The only person making any money here is the one that owns the original website selling the system.

    The "100% money back guarantee" is completely and utterly worthless. Clickbank, paypal and credit cards do not give refunds for ebooks, downloads, access, mentoring, advice, instructions, directions, virtual money or any other kind of non-tangible electronic goods, which is what is being purchased here, non-tangible electronic goods.

    Besides, you will receive something for your money, a list of companies that may or may not be hiring for any jobs. Since you will receive something, you won't be able to request your money back anyway, even though what you will receive is completely and utterly worthless to use to get a game tester job. If there were game tester jobs available, they would go to people who already work for that company, not new people hired off the street. In all seriousness, are game testing companies so incredibly desperate for workers that they would contract out to someone to find them employees or would they just stick a note on the front door and get hundreds of unemployed people lining up?

    Reading the "disclaimer", "terms of use" and "privacy policy" are all very telling. Translated, they know you won't get a job and while you attempt to apply for jobs, they and other companies will spam you with other offers.
