Is ChatAbout Legit? Uncovering Hoaxes, Scams and Ripoffs

We recently heard about a website called ChatAbout. When someone asked me, “Is ChatAbout Legitimate?,” I had to admit I hadn’t checked it out. They claim to be a great way to make money at home.  Being naturally skeptical, we decided to check it out and share our findings.

ChatAbout has been around for just over a year. Scam Adviser finds the site 100% safe. That basically means the website is safe, and free of bad stuff like viruses and malware.  It doesn’t prove they are a legitimate way to make money or that they actually pay, but it is a good sign that the site is safe.

My research uncovered several sources claiming to have been paid legitimately from ChatAbout.  I did not find anyone who said they weren’t paid, or any indication that this might not be legit.  I did find one person claim they didn’t get full points for a task, but that it was alleviated when she contacted them. Considering they’ve been around for over a year, it seems like word would be out already if they weren’t paying.

So, give ChatAbout a try and let us know what you think!
