As with many things on the Internet, it is important to make sure that something you are thinking about signing up to, or buying, is not a scam. This is of course the case with Lumosity.com as well, so here I am going to talk about whether or not Lumosity is a scam.
While without saying no, obviously Lumosity is not a scam because I have been a member for the last two years, I will give you some details into the background of Lumosity and why I think it is a very legitimate company and service. Lumosity is run by Lumos Labs. Lumos Labs is a cognitive neuroscience research and development company. The company employs qualified and trained neuroscientists to carry out research, which is then used to build the games that make up the Lumosity membership for brain training.
Lumosity has been around for quite sometime, since 2005. During that time the company has built up slowly and received a number of investments from various funding sources in order to grow to the large number of members that it currently claims to hold, which is apparently over 10 million (as of December, 2010) .
Apart from the reasons why I think Lumosity is not a scam as given above, as I said, I have been a member for over two years now, and I have found their website and membership to be extremely high quality. Also their support is great, if you have any questions or doubts, then their support team will usually get back to you with in a day or two.
