I posted an opportunity for the website GetPaidWritingArticles.Com a few weeks ago and I have been scammed!! I just wanted to warn my fellow writers to stay away from this site! While I didn't lose any money (thank goodness), they certainly do NOT pay for your articles.
I submitted an article to the site. Two days later, on December 11, I received this email:
Thank you for your submission to Get Paid Writing Articles.
Thank you for your patience. Our approval team is currently processing your submission.
You can expect a decision of approval within 1 business day of receiving this email.
If you have not received a response after that time, please reply to this email for assistance.
If you registered at http://getpaidwritingarticles.
com using the email address associated with your Paypal account then no further action is required on your part.
If that email address differs, please reply to this email with the appropriate email address that is to, potentially, receive payment VIA Paypal upon approval of your submission.
Get Paid Writing Articles
I replied to the email on December 13 advising them that I have not received a decision of approval. That was 10 days ago and I have yet to hear back from them. They are not responding to additional emails and they still have my article. I'll be checking to see if it shows up online anywhere. I sincerely hope they don't try to publish it without paying me.
Anyway, writer's beware of this site. If anything more comes of this, I'll post an update.
