Android Apps Scam

Make Money Online

I’ve been out of circulation from my regular blogging sessions for quite sometime now. I am a bit rusted, I must admit, and now I feel like a newbie blogger again. Off late, I was involved in a sort of “call reviewing” job using my trusty iPhone as my tool-of-trade. The online job provider is called Humanatic. My main job is to listen and sort out calls. It’s quite a challenging job, but like a call center agent, I have to keep wide awake at night to cope with my job. The Philippines is at the opposite time zone with the West and other parts of the world. While I am still current with Humanatic and having worked for them for a long while, I am starting to find my job monotonous and boring. Really, it’s a typical routine job that you do day in and day out. No variety whatsoever.

WINR Games Inc

One day, I tried searching “Make Money” on Google Play Store. There I found a lot of apps showing PayPal and Bitcoin rewards. Checking further, I found more enticing apps that would make you money by playing games. Actually, this was the first android app that caught my attention. It is called “Solitaire – Make Money Free”. It was developed by WINR Games Inc. I got to like this app because since my elementary school days, I learned to play solitaire using my dad’s deck of cards during my free time. It’s a game I am very familiar with and who knows, I may end up a millionaire. LOL!

Kidding aside, the essence of this blog is to warn you guys on the possibilities of ANDROID SCAMS. No offense to Google, but their Play Store may likewise contain dangerous device hacking software. Meaning, it is hard to determine if your android app is a legitimate or not. Many malicious android apps come in the guise of legitimate apps. In my little experience on this subject, I found some ways on how to verify the legitimacy of an android app and avoid being scammed.

  • First of all, I check on the star ratings of the app and comments made by users. Read what they say. A two-star app and no reply from the developer is certainly not worth your while.
  • Secondly, I would check on the veracity of the app maker or developer. Every app page must feature the developer directly beneath the title or name of the app which is normally written with capitalized letters. A dead give-away of an android scam app are non-capitalized writing and wrong spellings of the developer’s name and on the app page itself.
  • Thirdly, investigate if the android app has obtained permission. Check the bottom of the screen near the link to the developer’s website.
  • Fourthly, if your apps are from unknown sources, quickly disable them.

And finally, your android phone MUST have an anti-virus app installed. With this, you can get rid of unwanted apps that are a waste of time. This installation also protects you from malicious websites and/or things that may cause you or your android phone harm.

I am no expert on scam detection, but with this little knowlege on hand, you are somehow alerted and spared from android scam applications.

Why do you write?

Someone wrote an article on PersonaPaper and asking why do you write online. I said I started to write online because I got curious on why many people write online. And just to test my skills too, I gave it a try.

I am happy receiving likes and comments from netizens the world over. I feel my efforts are appreciated and recognized. And mind you, that’s even WITHOUT pay. But of course I’d be more than happy to be financially rewarded. Hahaha!

Now, I want to ask my fellow bloggers the same question. WHY DO YOU WRITE?

I never thought I would be an internet blogger by now. I do remember how I hated Theme Writing in my English class during my elementary and high school days.

I started blogging in 2012 with FanBox.com (former SMS.ac). I wrote more about “personal” and aviation (airplanes, helicopters, etc.) without thinking what most people like to read or search online but that is WHAT I KNOW. I enjoyed having fans and friends there but I decided to delete my account after a year because of FanBox I’ll Pay Later (IPL) processing fees.

I joined Bubblews.com in 2013 from mobile. I also wrote personal and aviation topics, etc. I was very happy my 1-6 redemptions were all successful. I continued writing though I didn’t receive payments for my 7-9 redemptions. I got paid again for my 10-13 redemptions but sad to say my account was deleted after eight months because of PostAnyArticle.com profile and post link on some of my bubbles (not a referral/affiliate but link to another paid-to-write website). I registered again in 2014 so I could comment on my friends’ posts (just for fun, not hoping much for money).

I joined PostAnyArticle.com in 2013 and republished deleted articles from previous sites but now it’s GONE.

I joined PersonaPaper in 2014 from mobile too. NO DUPLICATE content is allowed (reposting is fine as long as the original is already deleted but I prefer not to, I created this blog for that purpose).

I joined bitLanders.com January 2015 and got paid many times already.

There are so many paid-to-write and other revenue sharing sites and mobile apps popping up these days but I cannot attend to many of them. So, in the mean time I’d stick to bitLanders.
