How can you tell the difference between a legitimate home based business opportunity and a work at home scam?
99.6% of 'GET RICH'
Programs are SCAMS. Do you know the Signs?
If you're looking to make a legitimate income
online, then you have to read this because there really are
ways to make money on the world wide web. The problem is
sorting out the scams from the genuine money-making
opportunities. We've spent 18 months picking apart a hundred
work at home programs and recording data and numbers. What we
discovered was appalling!
There are many 'writers' online that simply aim
to capitalize off the dreams of people like you. Many times we
could not reach these 'writers' via email,fax, or phone to
obtain the refund they had promised on their sales page. That
is why this site was conceived. We are here to help as many
people as we can find the TRUEST, and most successful Online
There are obvious signs that will immediately
tell you if you are being scammed.
1. Have you been on a site, and noticed the
sales pitch you were reading failed to mention JUST WHAT
PRODUCT OR SERVICE was being sold? Chances are you probably
have. They paint this beautiful picture about fancy cars and
mansions; trips to exotic paradise resorts, and all that can
be YOURS?! Umm, not quite. These people are selling you the
"Dream" of having a wealthy lifestyle. The name of these
programs are 'Multi-level Marketing schemes'(MLM), or they're
also called 'Pyramid schemes'. The point is to get YOU to
recruit other people by feeding them the same dream that you
were fed. The only ones making real money are the creators of
A GENERAL RULE: IF THEY'RE NOT SELLING AN
ACTUAL PRODUCT, DO NOT GIVE THEM $$
2. Stuffing envelopes from the comfort of your
own home? This is supposed to be an employment offer. Yet you
are asked to send money to a company that claims they need it
to add you to their database. It does NOT take money to input
a couple lines of data into a server! This is another scam.
Common sense will tell you that NO ONE in their right mind
will pay up to $3 dollars to have ONE envelope stuffed.
3. Chain Letters
Chain Letters, Electronic or Otherwise, are not
legal. First of all, we want to point out that no matter what
the scam artist tells you in the letter, these little schemes
ARE NOT LEGAL, and people HAVE done jail time over them. For
example, Dave Rhodes spent a number of years in a Federal
Prison (and may still be there for all I know) for his
starting of this whole scheme electronically back in the days
of the Bulletin Board Services instead of the internet.
Whether disguised as a "mailing list," selling recipes," a
"free loan," "selling reports," a "gifting club," "lottery
ticket club," or any of a hundred other thin veils, they are
still chain letters, and still illegal.
4. Mass Emailing
For example, many companies that promote bulk
email will tell you that sending out bulk email is the road to
riches. It isn't. And, if that stock really was such a good
deal, why is this person sending you - and millions of other
people - this "secret" tip?
5. "I Can show you how to make $36,000 in only 5
This is quite possibly the most popular scam
floating around the internet. How does this person know for a
fact that YOU, a person he's never met, can make all that
money in just 5 days?! For all he knows, the person on the
other end is slightly brain damaged..or lazy even. The point
is- never believe anyone who puts a set dollar amount without
knowing anything about the person buying his 'program.'
Individual results will always vary from person to person. The
sad truth is that online businesses CAN NOT be operated by
just anyone with a PC and internet connection.
It takes alot of work to earn a living off the
internet, but that's why it feels so amazing when the money
starts to roll in.
