Is ChristiaNet.com A Scam?
CristiaNet.com A Highly Visited Resource
ChristiaNet.com is a job, dating and resource portal specifically targeted at Christians. Much like the very popular Craig’s List, ChristiaNet.com includes classifieds, various types of job opportunities, news, blogs and other articles. According to Quantcast, the average monthly visitation is 352,000 views, making this site a very highly visited resource.
Our initial review of ChristiaNet.com revealed that, although it is packed with information, the site is a bit clumsy and very simplified. However, appearance and functionality are not the most important aspects of a resource portal. It is the validity of the postings that is far more significant in determining the usefulness of the site.
ChristiaNet.com Is Updated Regularly
Firstly, and one of the most important things to look for when determining the effectiveness of a job or classified portal, is that the listings are current and are consistently updated. In our review of ChristiaNet.com, we found that the job listings appear to be current and new listings appear to be added on a regular basis. Secondly, it is important to note, that just because a job posting or work at home opportunity is listed on a Christian based website does not necessarily mean that it is a legitimate business opportunity.
Although there are no available reviews of job seekers who have found work on ChristiaNet.com, there is an article investigating the legitimacy of the dating aspect of the site. Essentially this article seeks to establish the trustworthiness of various dating and singles sites.
Most responders to a survey conducted for the article indicated that there can be incredible risks when responding to ads on dating sites, regardless of their religious affiliation. The same type of uncertainty applies to job listings or work at home opportunities.
The president of ChristiaNet.com offers the following advice, in relation to the dating aspect of the site, advice that can be easily translated to the job opportunities represented on the site, “Read through the frequently asked questions, see if the content is monitored and if there is a way to block members who are breaking the rules. In addition, check out the overall content on the website to see if it follows a Christian format.”
Home Based Businesses On ChristiaNet.com
Without reviewing each work at home opportunity individually, an initial overview reveals that the top five “picks” for home based businesses are directly linked to a Home-Based Business Matching Service , listed under the Work At Home category on the site. The other home-based business opportunities listed under the category Business Opportunity are not stand out opportunities. The descriptions of these listings are not fully detailed and do not offer specifics on the type of work required, potential earnings to be gained or if there is an initial investment required.
Any work at home opportunity, no matter where it is promoted, should be carefully researched and reviewed by the potential user. Simply listing a work at home opportunity on ChristiaNet.com or any other Christian affiliated site is not an automatic confirmation that it is legitimate. On ChristiaNet.com, it is clearly stated that the site is not an employment agency and does not guarantee any of the job offers. Users must exhibit the utmost in caution when considering a business opportunity even if it is listed on a Christian site.
