Is My Data Team A Scam?

It always amazes me how so many people come to this industry thinking there are all these magically available Data Entry Jobs. It's as if people forget that most people are able to type really well now so there isn't a huge demand for folks that specialize in the low skill of data entry. But alas the scammers know we suspend our common sense and desperation gets the better of us. So they create these websites allegedly providing you the holy grail of work at home data entry jobs. But is that what you're really getting? Today in my My Data Team Jobs Review, we're digging into a company that claims to offer data entry jobs.
What Is My Data Team?
My Data Team Jobs was was started in 2002 by Timothy Darwin. The site claims you can make big money with their “Global Data Entry Job Program.” You will find in the first few paragraphs that the site clearly states they are a “legitimate” company and they never, ever charge any fees. Timothy Darwin claims he and staff has guided thousands of “team members” to success with their programs. In addition, there are supposedly 10 programs to make money with.
The My Data Team Opportunity
Their website claims that you will be processing data evaluations and ad submissions. You will be considered a “global data entry processor.”
How Much Money Can You Make?
This company says you can make anywhere from $300 – $1,000.00 per day. Are you serious? Then why aren't more people doing this? I've been making money online since 1999 and I can tell you from experience it takes a lot of effort and TIME to make the kind of money they're talking about.
My Data Team Complaints
When doing reviews, there always going to be some complaints. It comes with the territory because you can't make everyone happy and that's fine. It doesn't always mean a company is a scam. But then there are times where the complaints are serious enough where it makes us judge the actual legitimacy. So with that said, I've dug up some of the complaints so you can decide.
This opportunity misleads you throughout their whole presentation that NO FEES are ever required. That is, until you scroll almost all the way down their website, it states a fee is required. Did I miss something? Doesn't no fees mean I won't have to pay anything. Has the English language changed?
So if the fee thing wasn't bad enough this company does NOT supply you with the type of data entry JOBS or companies you're expecting. What they DO supply you with is instructions how to join as an affiliate, just to get others to join and do the very same thing. That is definitely false advertisement, and HOW they are stealing your money! You're thinking you're doing traditional data entry but you're not.
Here We Go Again With Identity Crisis!
Seems that the owner has come up with a couple more bogus names for the company:
* My Data Team Jobs
* Global Data Entry Processing
* World Wide Data Entry
Usually companies are doing this to cover their tracks when one company name or brand has been ruined or already.
I don't know of any legitimate job offer that pressures people into signing up right away on their website without an interview because positions are being filled. Basically My Data Team Job is using a computer script to add whatever today's date may be to make you think that you need to hurry into buying into their program. That date changes every day so there is no real deadline. They also use a script that pulls your location on to their page so it seems like they have open positions in your area. All these shady tactics are used to put pressure on you to purchase their program. A real job would never use such tactics. But shady marketers that are trying to sell you their products use it all the time.
Fake Consumer Protection Seals
At the bottom of the My Data Team Jobs page are some seals that are placed there to give the website some legitimacy. Two of the seals aren't actually linking to anywhere you can verify them. I wonder how Norton Antivirus would feel about this company misusing their logo. The other seals link to websites that no one has ever heard for or use as a way to confirm a company's legitimacy.
Poor BBB Ratings
I'm not really big on depending on the Better Business Bureau as my criteria for determining a company's legitimacy but many of you are. That said, this company has a poor BBB rating which can be found here.
So, Is My Data Team Legit?
Honestly this opportunity reminds me of my Work At Home Institute Review. It's just another example of a company that is misrepresenting a legitimate way to make money online. It gives my business and industry a bad name. And ultimately it gives the whole work at home filed another black eye. You end up with people that are wasting the little money they have on garbage. Furthermore it just makes people more skeptical and miss out on legitimate ways to make money like My #1 Work At Home Recommendation which shows you how to make real money as I've been for years without misrepresenting it!
That said, I would highly recommend you avoid this company. Chances are you'll be very disappointed in what you get. The complaints above pretty much confirm this.
You know, I always look forward to your feedback in the comments below. If you have any experience or comments on the company, I welcome your comments.
