Scam or Legit

A lot of times, we find something almost unbelievable on the internet and we say, "is this a scam?".  One of my first reactions to that is to try and find out what other people say.  If it's a scam, people usually make themselves heard because of their anger and disappointment.

Another way to easily determine if something is a scam or not is to try and research the company behind "scam".  For instance, Swagbucks.  If you look up their company, Prodege, they have a website explaining what they do and now how much they are growing.  There is no question that they are NOT a scam and are here to stay for a while.

Quibids is another example of if it's a scam or not.  The online penny auction industry is full of scams, so why not Quibids?  A quick look for Quibids doesn't show much.  I eventually found that the CEO is Matt Beckham.  He has done a few interviews both on video and in text.  It's not much, but I didn't see any reviews saying customers didn't get the item they won.  A good sign that this wasn't a scam, besides getting my items, was that the customer support is fantastic.  I once had a complaint about something I though I had done, but then actually didn't.  Customer support was friendly and satisfactory.

Of course, if you can't find anything on a company or it's products, it doesn't mean they are a scam.  You'll just have to try it yourself (cautiously) or wait until it becomes a little more popular.
