How Data Entry Scams Are Stealing Your Money!

Hey Moneymint fans!

Welcome to all the new members who've joined us this week! Thank you for being a part of Moneymint.

Are you dreaming of earning easy money with data entry jobs? Think again! In this newsletter, we uncover the shocking truth behind data entry scams that are duping thousands of people.

In the past couple of weeks we at Moneymint have received countless requests for data entry and typing jobs.

Seeing this meteoric rise in requests for a job that we don’t even provide, it was necessary to conduct an in-depth analysis of these luring data-entry jobs advertised by various companies, fooling people who are already struggling to find a minimum source of income.

If you search for “data entry jobs” or “data entry to earn money” on YouTube, you will find a lot of videos with lakhs of views—yes, lakhs—and thousands of comments where users like you are just asking, "How can we earn money?"

I don't understand why you consider these people's videos to be real and why doesn't anyone ask if they have earned money? Can they show screen recordings?

If you'd like to see a video version with more details on this topic, you can watch my video:

And I have removed the channel name because I am not saying anything against any YouTuber. Their only mistake is that they make such videos without research, and users like you believe them to be true.

So the most popular data entry company that you will see in YouTube videos is HireinGlobal.

To support its trustworthiness, people always talk about its Trust pilot ratings:

It may seem to you that this is a genuine company, and if you go to their website, you will be more convinced after seeing their payment screenshots that they do pay for data entry.

But don't go by their Trustpilot numbers; look at the reviews people have given:

You might say that these are negative reviews given by competitors, but look at their positive reviews—there is one common thing in all of them.

Just consider this: when you give a review, do you enter your registration number? In most videos, you will find the registration number. You have to decide whether it is fake or genuine.

Let’s not consider the Trustpilot reviews, but you can see genuine people posting their reviews about the company:

If you want to data entry work from this company, you will have to submit a typing certificate. However, in the videos, most people have said that their typing certificate was not accepted, and they had to take a typing exam through this website.

As soon as people paid ₹500 and took their typing exam, they were given their first data entry work.

But no one's work was accepted (according to the reviews) because there were errors in everyone's content, and their payment was not made due to not achieving 80% accuracy.

From this, you must have understood what the main business of the company is.

I am not saying that the company is doing this with everyone, but in the videos, people have shared their personal experiences. I don't personally trust the screenshots but the actual experiences of people.

One of the most important suggestions from me is to never pay upfront for any job anywhere.

Data Entry Frauds by Different Companies

Okay, this is just one way, and there are many other methods of data entry frauds happening in the market. Let's discuss how these scammers operate.

How These Scammers Take Your Hard-Earned Money:

  • Refundable Deposit

  • Registration Fees

  • Software Fees

  • Penalty for Breach of Agreement

  • Typing Certificate

They trap you by claiming there are mistakes in your work, too many errors, or by giving you tasks that are impossible to complete.

The sole purpose of these companies is to exploit you and take your money through the methods mentioned above. Unfortunately, they are often successful because many people fall into these scams.

Data Entry Fraud – Fake Legal Notice

This is a particularly interesting method of scamming. These companies will tell you that you have to fill out 1,000 forms in 3 days with 90% accuracy, and the payment will be ₹30,000 (₹30 per form). It sounds easy, and you might think it's a simple task, so you agree to work.

You will have to sign a 30-day contract before receiving the work. This contract states that if you fail to achieve 90% accuracy, you will be penalized. Thinking it’s easy, you sign the contract.

After submitting the first task, these companies will claim that you did not achieve 90% accuracy, and your payment will be withheld. Additionally, you will be required to pay a penalty.

In many cases, fake lawyers will call you, threatening that a legal notice will be issued against you, demanding you to pay the company 3 to 4 lakh rupees. To avoid this, you are urged to pay the penalty immediately.

If you still don't comply, they will send a fake legal notice, asking you to come to another state to fight the case.

Even if you pay the penalty, they will call you again, claiming you owe more money, often fabricating charges such as server fees. Ultimately, these companies try their best to extract as much money from you as possible.

Source of Trapping:

  • Newspaper Ads

  • Facebook Groups

  • Posters in your locality

  • Job portals such as Indeed, Naukri, etc

  • Telegram Groups

They rank first when you search for Data Entry jobs in Google as they are using paid ads to target users.

Let's move on to the next part on how to spot these fraud websites and stay away from them.

How to Spot Fake/Fraud Websites

Earning thousands of rupees through copy-paste or data entry jobs is a myth. These promises are fake, and you cannot earn more than an engineer through these websites. While some genuine ways to earn money do exist, data entry and copy-paste methods are not among them.

To learn how to spot these fraudulent websites, check out my video where I provide exact steps to help you identify scam or fraud data entry websites. Additionally, in the video, there is an attached spreadsheet containing details of 100 fake or fraudulent companies:

You can support this campaign by widely sharing my latest YouTube video on the Moneymint with Aditya channel with your friends, family, and community. Together, we can raise awareness and prevent people from being exploited by these fraudulent data entry job schemes.

If you have any doubts, ask them on our website or in the comments below this YouTube video—we will reply to every one of them. Never fall for such frauds, as they waste your time and money.

I would advise you to stay away from these frauds that promise dreams of earning thousands or lakhs of rupees. While these dreams may sound appealing, they rarely come true in reality.

By educating yourself and others about these scams, you can avoid falling victim and protect your hard-earned money.

In conclusion, always be cautious of too-good-to-be-true job offers, especially in the realm of data entry. By staying informed and vigilant, you can protect yourself and others from falling prey to these scams. Let's work together to spread awareness and safeguard our communities from such fraudulent activities.
