Online Data Entry Job Provider
Is Zitkey.net Fake or Real?
Why is Zitkey Fake?
Zitkey is a website that claims to be a trusted provider of data entry work such as captcha solving and SMS sending jobs. The website does not look professional at all as it is riddled with errors in grammar and spelling.
I suspect that they are using ‘SMS sending jobs’ as a pretense to rank in the search results as their packages are only for captcha solving. There is an obvious attempt to make users choose the most expensive plan as it provides higher payout for easier work. The FAQ section of the website clearly mentions that payment is absolutely necessary to begin the work.
A domain name lookup of the website shows that it has been registered on 28th April 2020. There is a registration document provided on the website by Zitkey which shows that the company was registered in 2015. This is obviously a lie as the website has only been active since May 2020.
In order to make itself look legitimate, Zitkey has created a page on the website showing the recent payouts. However, there is no way to verify whether it is real.
There are some testimonials provided on the website, but there is no way of verifying them. Zitkey does not give any contact details such as an email ID or phone number. There is an address provided which could easily be fake and the only way to get in touch with them is through a contact form.
At the time of writing this article, there are only two reviews available for Zitkey. They are by users on Quora claiming that Zitkey is a typical data entry job scam.
It seems quite obvious that Zitkey is a scam. The registration details provided are fake, the list of payouts provided is photoshopped and there is no contact information provided. There is no reason to trust Zitkey and believe that it is different from the countless data entry job scams, such as Digital One India, OnlineDataEntryJob, Home Job Experts and more which have been covered on this website.
Any job which requires you to pay before you can earn is likely to be a scam. Real companies never ask for payment from employees or freelancers.
Remember: If something seems too good to be true, it probably is.
If you have been a victim of an employment scam, you can take the following steps:
- Lodge a complaint at the National Cyber Crime Reporting Portal
- Lodge a complaint with PayTM on Twitter, Customer Care or through the app, UPI app such as Google Pay or the Bank with which the company has an account.
- Report the website to Google using the Suspicious Site Reporter extension for Chrome
- Give a low rating to the website on Web of Trust. You can also install their extension for the same.
- File a complaint with the Indian Consumer Complaints Forum
- Write a review on websites such as MouthShut, Scamadviser and TrustPilot.
- Block all numbers of the scammers on TrueCaller, mentioning the words Fake, Fraud or Scam in the name.
- If the company has a listing on Google My Business or Google Maps, file a complaint using the Business Redressal Complaint Form. Also, leave a negative review explaining what kind of experience you had.
