Last night my daughter mentioned that she has joined the KGB, and that she has already made $20 working for them. She had me worried. I thought that the KGB (Komityet Gosudarstvjennoj Biezopasnosti) was the intelligence/security branch of the now nonexistent Soviet government (USSR)!
Later that night she showed me some video ads for this company called KGB (Knowledge Generation Bureau). Here is one of them:
Anyway, my daughter is an avid Yahoo Answers person, and she is a top contributor on one of the categories there. I’ve been telling her to not waste her time with Yahoo Answers since she doesn’t get paid giving out answers. Well, now she is a KGB agent and is actually getting paid answering questions.
What questions may she be answering you ask? Well, the KGB has actually been in business in the US for some time now providing phone directory services. Just this year they started providing text answering service where it costs $0.99 to have a text question answered. From each question she answers, she earns a few cents (e.g. anywhere from 3 to 10 cents per response). Their agent position page explains the compensation plans.
I thought I would have to contend with Soviet spies. Whew! what a relief.
