InBoxDollars Scam or Easy Money

In my never ending quest to find money to support my wandering around the universe I attempt to make money through advertising on my blog.  I was offered the opportunity to allow InBoxDollars to place a banner ad on my Blog.  Before I would do this I decided to check out the program.   First of all they credit you $5 for signing up.  Then they have programs wherein you can watch videos, complete task and fill out surveys. 

First the videos that I was offered to watch where ads for various products that lasted between 20 and 30 second.  The pay was 2 cents per video.  Giving them the benefit of the doubt lets say they were 20 seconds each.  That translates into 6 cents per minute.  If you could watch that many per minute then you would be earning at a rate of $3.60 per hour.   The problem is that they only let you see 5 videos at a time.  So you can make 10 cents. 

Next they give you task that you can perform.  I checked out these task.   They list numerous items with pay rates from 10 to 40 cents.  These listed task state that it will take 30 minutes to complete the task.   So you are making between 20 cent to 40 cents per hour. 

I can not believe that in this day and age with minimum wage law that anyone would attempt to treat any worker in this fashion.   I think that it is a scam.
