Get Paid Driving
A reader sent in this hoax website, though it actually seems more like a scam website than a hoax website. It's GetPaidDriving.com. For just $24.95 they'll let you access their database of companies that will pay you to drive your own car. This brings up memories of the Freewheelz hoax. I think people would be well advised to save their money and not shell out any money for info on how to 'Get Paid Driving.'

I've dealt with GetPaidDriving.com, and sadly paid them $24.95 and have never heard from thim in 2 years. Does anybody know how to locate this scam company and get the money back? Does anybody know who they are?

When I was a teenager with my first car, I actually sold advertising space since I had to drive around a lot due to my job. (Door-to-door sales) It worked pretty well for over 2 years.
