Online marketing money

Online marketing moneyIn my quest to find more money (while also cutting back my spending) I ran across some online marketing companies. They hook you up with surveys or online focus groups or to use products and discuss – all of these supposively pay decent $$$.

My question for all of you savy interet debt management peeps is…is this a scam?

I answered one survey that led to another and another and another and so on until my hand hurt. The other one wanted me to pay for sepcial software.
In theory it sounds like a good thing becaue I have been paid to be in focus groups (in person) and to answer surveys at the mall. But it seems like a scam online. Does anyone know of any that are not scams?
Thanks for your help and thoughts!…
