Hello,
I've been looking at weekend work, in order to earn a little more money (surveys are too impredictible) and I found the following 2 adverts, on 2 different websites, for the same 'job':
https://www.totaljobs.com/job/work-from-home-full-time-part-time/20cogs-job93941475
https://www.milkround.com/job/immediate-start-work-from-home/submission-technology-limited-job90857237
'Work from home, full time/part time

Immediate Start. Work from Home or remotely. Full time / Part Time / Weekend

Looking for part-time or full-time work, working at the weekend or in the evenings from home or remotely? Are you looking for flexible hours to earn some extra money? Perhaps you work in a school as a trainee teacher or are a teaching assistant? You could earn money in your spare time or at the weekend and work from home!

You could earn up to £200 for completing 20 simple tasks. Flexible working means you can be your own boss and work from home at the weekend or whenever you like.

20Cogs has helped thousands of members pay off bills or save for holidays by completing Competitions, Offers, Games and Surveys from some of the UK’s top brands.'


Are they making 'staff' take surveys for them ? It sounds really, really dodgy to me. Reminds me of when I was working for agencies, visiting their clients' homes to tutor their kids. I often wasn't paid by the agency, even though the parents had paid them (or told me so)...

If I was to guess it's an affiliate trying to get signups by putting their link on job sites

I would like to think it's not 20cogs/ohMDosh themselves but you never know

Yeah. 100% it is this.
So not a scam as such but its definitely not a "job"
If you want to have a look at it just google 20cogs and look at their website. You can join directly from there, you don't need to apply for a non existent job to do it. Its basically a site that makes money from getting you to do surveys and sign up to things. All things you have to sign up for you can cancel again, but personally it's not my cup of tea. And I believe it takes a long time to complete all 20 cogs and be able to cash out.

They might never pay anyway. It happened with one of the survey websites I had joined (I will look them up, I don't know whether they still exist). I 'worked' then tried to redeem my points, twice. I never received any money, nor any answer to the tickets I submitted to customer support.
