    I have already completed only free jobs 1) form filling 2) copy paste job @ 10+10 data entry /day in two free job sites, but finally, they asked me to wait for 10 days after completion of my paid jobs. It is now more than 10 days they have not replied anything but on the site, certain mistakes were given and underscored by the red line, cannot be corrected. I think this site is for their income through advertisements only. For which they have given the terms for 30 days with 98% accuracy. I think this is a fake site only.
    I trust SureJob. Now I request you to recommend secured and genuine 100% free site for the above jobs.
