In short:
Are there really genuine data entry job provider like form upload , data upload etc. ?

Some background:
Few days back, one of my friend came to me (with impression that I might know about such things) that he wants to invest in some data entry job and he is willing to use part of his existing office.

He had a sub contract with an agency for uploading data for a Govt. organization, recently contract expired and now he has his place (10 seat ) unused.

So he came to me with information about various website providing online data job, one is providing Rs. 3 per form upload for 5 person, other is providing Rs. 10 for similar task. First one is asking Rs. 50K upfront and while other one is Rs. 100K . They all have their representative and they are in touch with him constantly.

In my views , anything asking upfront for such work is scam but they have people convincing him, calling him, inviting him to their office.

Now I don't know what to advice, he need to get some work to utilize his office, but I don't want him to suffer.

There are genuine cases where you are supposed to pay upfront so that they know you are serious. It is widely misused though.
