There are so many scams on the internet these days, and it's hard to identify the difference. When all the advertising strategies are nearly identical. But we all fall for the same suggestion every time. Making a lot of money fast! 

It's a marketing tactic, and what's even more annoying. Is that the impressive screenshots you see is often the truth. What they don't tell you however is that making that kind of money will take a few years. A sneaky marketing tactic, but a rather effective one at that. 

Always be sure whatever you buy comes with a money back guarantee. A really expensive lesson I learnt. If the owner is not willing to offer a refund, then they may not have a lot of trust in their claims. And neither should you.

Money Made At Home

Original Post

Thankfully, I haven't fallen victim to any huge [email protected] But I sure have taken advantage of money back guarantees when something just wasn't quite what they said it was.

I tend to be a curious person so I will usually try something even if I think it is potentially a scam.

I tried one program that claimed to give you access to Authorized suppliers of name brand items. I was skeptical but it was only $25 to join, and although they had a NO REFUND policy, they accepted payment through PayPal  Needless to say, PayPal disputes generally end in the customers favor especially if you can prove for a fact that it is a scam 

Another thing I joined that I knew probably was fake was a company that puts a sticker on the back window of your car. I went ahead and paid for the decal shipping and an upgraded tier but to this day I have made no money and the guaranteed payment after 90 days of no money has never been sent. I have talked to others who got their money back but I just didn't worry about it since it was less than $20.

If companies offer a no questions asked refund policy, I have no problem taking them up on it if their product/service doesn't live up to my expectations.

Same here @Moore Income. Although I have to admit my curiosity cost me quite a pretty sum. I call it college fees...lol! It did however result in an arsenal of knowledge, failure after failure. But then success means going from failure to failure without the loss of enthusiasm right? 

I will test almost anything, providing they offer a full refund. Because that is also how I determine what to display on my Blog and YouTube videos. If it's on my Blog or in a video description, then I'm personally using it. 

Sometimes misdirection does play a role with impressive screenshots especially. Which is often an example of what is possible, but not necessarily imminent. But I did fall for quite a couple of those...

DEON CHRISTIE the one i remember the most is a google thing.
I don't remember the name of it but it had google in it and screen
shots was showmen even checks of what people got. it was about 20
bucks to start oh you all so got a cd with ebooks you could sell.  the
thing is in very small print it had ever 3 weeks you be charge $75 and
never told what the $75 fee was for.

The other one is the oysters that you see live on fb. they have where you
open a oyster on live video and you get a pearl or 2 but they would say the
pearl was worth $100 to  $500 or more when it was only worth $5 or $6 bucks.

So do your home work before trying any things.

There are many scams out there @Bonnie Squires. I know of a few similar programs, but not for that amount of money though. Programs offering such "packages" is usually around $37 at most. But it's always better creating your own unique content. I don't particularly like content packages and resell rights products. 

I have tested more systems and programs than I care to recall. Most of them nothing more than hot air. But there are the rare ones that do work. But that requires a lot of research to work your way through the clutter. 

I have found that one of the best ways to avoid these "[email protected]" money schemes is to make sure your mindset is in the right place to begin with.

If you understand how money works and how wealth is actually created, you will know that a lot of what these "internet marketers" are promoting is simply hype. They are selling a dream, but that is all it is. It is the hope that you can achieve something, but it is not necessarily tied to any proven principles.

You can never go wrong picking up a book written by someone who has successfully learned to manage their money and has a proven track record of wealth.

I have learned more in a few pages of a book than I have in some full courses that cost me upwards of $50! 

unfortunately, I was so depresate after graduating from school and not finding a job - I saw a post for a work from home job. I can't remember the name at the moment but it was to help a life insurance or security company gain more members.

the set up was very elaborate. I mean recordings of your voice, setting up your phone system..etc but I had to deposit a $25 fee and then I started to google the company. other people were saying after a while of back and forth "training" there would be white noise and you wouldn't hear from them.

I threaten to report them to the BBB if they didn't return my money and delete my information. fortunately they returned my money but I haven't heard from them again.

Becareful of those work from home jobs

I despise the scams @Mo Brownies. They give online marketing a bad name. But don't give up, there are the really good systems that actually work. And it can sometimes be costly lessons learned in one's search for the ones which work. 

I had success with methods involving Google Ads, YouTube and Clickbank. But it does take a while to complete the entire structure in order to apply the method. Which I have been applying for the last month or so. But it's not something that can be done "quickly". Took me around 3 years getting everything in place for this single method. 

My point is, never give up. Keep going and you will find something that will work for you. Research and develop your own ideas and methods.

Mindset is the most important @Moore Income. Instant riches is indeed a dream. But also a rather effective marketing tactic. And I must agree that reading a book may be a lot more financial sensible. But I also test an awful lot of those programs you mention. Because it's important to me to offer my audiences quality. And yes most of them are nothing more than fermented hype. Which is also why I always ensure it comes with a money back guarantee. 

In many cases the impressive screenshots is not all hype. But what they don't tell you is that large amounts of money takes a few years to achieve. Which is why you must know how money works. It takes time to build a Castle.

I was a victim of an investment scam for over a period of 1 year, I Invested a total of $80000 with binary trading it accumulated to $540000 in earnings and if I had known about going through Quora channel earlier on I might have been able to retrieve all that I lost. My case was really bad because I had taken a loan and was in serious debts. I tried going through my bank and the local law enforcement authorities to trace the money and locate the scammer but they were both taking too long due to their protocol. I then decided to try using a private investigator and fraud analyst and this actually proved to be more effective even as it was months later from when I was actually scammed. I contacted Adrian Gonzalez on Quora and he was all the help I needed. I couldn’t get all my money back but I was more than satisfied with what he was able to retrieve and now I’m no longer in debt. My advice will be to act fast and get yourself a private investigator to look into your case, that way you stand a higher chance of retrieving part of your lost funds. Lookup Adrian Gonzalez on Quora or via email; [email protected]yberservices.com I hope you find this information useful!
