I just wanted to warn you about an online writing scam that makes you purchase a domain and hosting through with the promise of paying 40 Australian dollars per 1000 words article. Do not ever apply to these websites, although there may be more like these. Its just a new scam method of selling domain and hosting packages and earning commissions. These sites are https://nupathe.com/write-for-... https://travelista.club/write-...
When you click on their Apply button, it takes you to https://writers.academy/nupath... or https://writers.academy/travel...
It asks you to sign up with your FB or Instagram account, which should ring a warning bell. After you complete a simple form asking for years of experience and education, you get a email from the WTF Writing Team telling you that they have received your application and it will be reviewed soon. It asks you to please sit tight and wait for a response over the next few days. The next day you receive and email saying they have reviewed your application, and you have been approved as a contributor to their website. Your rate will be : $40 AUD per 1000 words. But you first need to setup your blog to begin as for future jobs you will need a blog / portfolio to show examples of your writing and technical skills.
It says:We will link to your blog from your profile on the Writers.Agency website, and in most cases your Writer Biography at the bottom of your articles. You can begin work as soon as you have setup your blog.
And when you click on the START NOW button in the email, it takes you to a page with a link to Godaddy for purchasing a domain name and hosting. The link is a Commission Junction affiliate network link that ensures this scammer earns a commission from Godaddy through the network every time a poor writer looking for work innocently purchases a domain and hosting in the hope of getting paid $40 per article. You don't get any work and are stuck with a domain and hosting and don't know how to even build the blog because the instructions in the email are just about how to purchase a domain, buy the hosting package and install Wordpress. You can't have a blog without installing a Wordpress theme and a professional to edit it.
So just stay away from this scammer. The person's name in the email is Chantelle Rodgers but it must be a fake and sounds like one. These scammers should be ashamed of trying to rip off innocent writers who are looking for work to support themselves and their families by working hard.
Shut ut down
