To this day it blows me away how many cheesy money making scams are out there. I see them all over the internet, and I think to myself, are people really that stupid to fall for this? Apparently they are. Why else would they keep pumping them out?
The bottom line is over 95% of the Make money online opportunities are crap. Plain and simple. Protect yourself and learn these 3 easy rules of internet marketing Scam detection.
How to spot an internet Scam
Rule number 1.
If a company or website is trying to sell you something without telling you what it is, then it is a scam; bottom line. I don’t care what anyone says, if you have to buy a product to find out what it is, it’s a bullshit SCAM!
Read that last paragraph again. If you just follow Rule number 1 you have already cut out a huge % of internet marketing scams.
Rule number 2.
If the main focus of the opportunity is signing people up, its always a Scam. Especially if there is no actual product. They may say something like “all you have to do is get 3 people in your downline, and then they get 3 people in, then when your 4-5 levels deep the process just takes on a life of its own. Now you can just sit back and let the checks roll-in.
Usually this also includes some ridiculously complex compensation program that supposedly pays out in multiple ways. Sometimes this will include some vague useless over-priced product or service that you have to pay for every month.
This is a classic pyramid scheme setup, that is very commonly associated with multi-level or network marketing.
Rule number 3.
If you cant find any solid information about a company, it’s probably because there isn’t anything good to say about it or it doesn’t exist in the first place. This is an easy one. Just use Google and type the name of the company or opportunity + scam, fraud or ripoff.
The rule of thumb is if you can not find anything online about a company, stay the hell away from it. No matter how good the opportunity, sounds, how real the screen-shots look, or how great the video testimonials seem, just WALK. Definitely don’t give them your credit card number.
Memorize these 3 rules, if an opportunity falls in any one or all of these categories there is a 99% chance its a scam.
