    Hey everyone.
    So, here's the scoop - I do a LOT of work on microworkers to pull in some small amount of side cash while I get my blog up and running. I have had no luck on fiverr, and I can pull in a decent amount of money doing this.

    Anyways, their customer support sucks - a lot. I've had jobs turned down by requestors despite doing the work (with screenshot evidence). When submitting this to the mworkers support, nothing happens. I've lost about 20$ so far this way - not a lot, but that's gas for a week for me, or a week's worth of food.

    I'm honestly getting tired of it, so I'm considering any time an affiliate turns me down when I've done the work, taking a screenshot of the job with the link to their site prominently discussed, and emailing their affiliate network.

    I know its a mean thing to do, but I'm tired of the microworkers' support not doing anything. I feel if some of these requestors lose their cash source, it might teach them a lesson about screwing over people who do the work they need.

    What are your thoughts?

    Now I understand how they noticed I was using microworkers .. lol jokes. Maybe mail the requestors first and tell them youre going to report them to their aff network if they dont pay you for the task. They'd rather pay you than lose their aff. earnings.

    Screw them if they bamboozle you IF you have the done the work as requested.

    I have been to the site and the jobs pay like 10-25 cents or something for a gig..What kind of work do you do there?

    I usually do CPA ads by request, writing reviews, clicking ads, etc. Usually nothing under 35 cents per job. Sadly I don't have a high PR blog (yet) so I can't do most of the high paying jobs. Sometimes the jobs pay extremely well - I did a CPA earlier today for 4.50, but they also tend to be the ones that are randomly "not completed" despite having everything done and all required information turned in.

    There is a job on outsource army that pays 75 cents, where the exact same one on microworkers only pays 10 cents. The earnings potential on outsourcearmy is way better than on microworkers, especially when there are free offers that pay in the $50 range for some countries... you will NEVER find rates like that on microworkers. go check out OutsourceArmy dee oh tee see oh emm
