Real or Scam?
We investigated WordsRated by looking at its CEO Profile and their three research programs so far. From all we can see, it’s a legit research organization. However, the current $200 per book job listing is for just a small number of 5 – 10 people. What this means is that candidates are going to have a tough time getting the job due to the large number of applicants. However, all hope is not lost, you could be the lucky candidate. So yes, WordsRated will pay you $200 for every book you read, if you get the job.
