DataEntryPortal is a company for general Data Entry Work. However, as there are thousands of scam artists also trying to sell this kind of lucrative business opportunities, it has virtually become impossible to find a genuine one. This article will try to illustrate some point which will clarify that, DataEntryPortal.com, like many other scam artists, also falls into the world of black listed names.
First and foremost, they do not have any address or any person’s contact umber. Had it been a legit organization sincerely working towards its goal, it must have an office and customer support centre, but none you can find in the website, clearly signaling something fishy is going on.
The promised amount per day is around USD 400, which is really quite high for Data Entry works and thus naturally springs out an air of suspicion. This suspicion is further fuelled by the fact that when you see, just like other scam sites, it also requires you to pay a ONE TIME fee of USD 57. So, if it is a work that you will do, and will pay a commission to the company, then you should have no reason to pay any startup fees; but, here you have to pay which is obviously a telling factor that you are going to waste your money and nothing else.
In their testimonial section, there is no way to verify the so called “Satisfied” users who have put their comment to bolster the claim of DataEntryPortal.com. Therefore, you do not have any guarantee that the comments are really genuine or not. Further, on top of the page, they have assured you that they can not in any way help you to identify the person, thus, al these comments are just lies for sure.
Here is a comment from the victim:
I need to tell you about the biggest scam I have ever seen. The site is http://www.DataEntryPortal.com
All in all, I’ll recommend you to stay away from such scam artists who claims to provide you Data entry jobs in exchange of fee and with no address or any person’s contact number. These are just imposters and cheaters who will rob you off your money if you give them any chance.

You have to perform these tasks each time for each and every client, regardless of the project size. So, when there is a lot of customer, you tend to be in an uneasy position with all these tasks that don’t incite you at all.

Later on if you go too much into shell, then you may fall behind in this competitive business. Thus in any case, you have to keep you marketing and sales functionality on proper track and speed.
If the client is really big, and able to pay a lot, then you can hire some contract to do some part of the project, instead of dropping other clients off. But make sure that the quality of the work that the subcontractors do is top-notch.
Even if you have decided to drop off the other clients, do not simply leave out any running projects. This actually will create a huge negative impression. Finish whatever projects you have in hand, and then approach the big gig. Also inform the other clients in a professional manner that at that time you will not be available for any other projects.
