Castingwords is a transcription service that posts some micro-jobs online. They post the job at a very low pay rate, literally $1.00 or so for 11-30 minutes of transcription that can take an hour or two to do. They promise bonuses based on how well you do. Very quickly I discovered they were a scam. I would miss one word, which they noted for me, and they cut my little conus that was supposed to be $3.00 in half. There was a trend. I got better and better, but my bonus was never more than half what was promised, and often a lot less. I went to their site and browsed their prices. I quickly realized they cannot afford to pay people what they promise and make any money. They charge $1 a minute per transcript. If you pay the transcriptor $4-$5 then an editor $4-$5, for an 11 minute recording, they make almost nothing. So the bonuses they "promise" are unrealistic.
They are a total rip-off any way you cut it. Finally, it gets worse, I send them an e-mail saying I don't want to work for them anymore. I told them I don't believe their being honest about pay, etc. So they send me an e-mail saying my info is deleted. I go to check and it's all still there. Then, I start getting notices from the micro job site I work for that they're now completely rejecting the other couple of jobs I have pending. So now I get zero. Nice. Don't buy or work for these dishonest people.!!
