Faster than fastest method to making money online

"Turn your Computer into a Money Making Machine...... Learn how to make a fortune effortlessly while sitting in front of your computer at home"

This quote was taken from one of thousands of emails coming daily to our email boxes. Most of this type of emails are categorised as SPAM by Anti-Virus and Anti-Spam software and also by web based email services. The spam is explained as unsolicited, unwanted commercial e-mail messages that clog up the e-mail boxes.

The above mentioned email promotes a method to make money online. It says that anybody can make at least $1000 per day with a software which they provide. See the full text of this email below. Of course, it has been edited only to leave out the sender's identity.

So, why should we waste time to write blogs to make money online? Even what is the need to be employed and work hard from morning to evening when you can earn more than $1000 each day while staying at your own home?

The following e-mail promotes another method to make $100,000 per year which is said to be an honest and easy way to earn from home which means that there are other methods promoted by various parties which are not "honest".

How many house wives and stay-at-home-mothers write regularly to HubPages and various other blog communities to earn some extra money to support their families. You may be one of them. Just see whether you have received an email like this.

The following email promotes a way to earn while you sleep but without dreaming.

Another important point is that the links provided in most of the emails function only for a short period of time. Thereafter, when you click the link, your web browser returns with error message "unable to find the web site".

Well! All these emails are very interesting but none of them say what we should do to earn so much of money so faster. They just invite us to visit their web site. Have you ever visited this type of web sites?

If you visit them you will find that those sites are so attractive and most of them are several metres long. You must most probably stop all your work and spend one whole day to read the contents of the site. The web site is full of beautiful words in different colours including attractive figures in Dollars, several testimonials by various people from different parts of the world, tables and graphs giving earnings patterns, claims paid, guarantees and so on. But at the bottom of the site you can see a link called "Earnings disclaimer" or something similar to that in very small letters which, if clicked, takes you to a page where you can see this type of words.

ANY EARNINGS OR INCOME STATEMENTS, OR EARNINGS OR INCOME EXAMPLES, ARE ONLY ESTIMATES OF WHAT WE THINK YOU COULD EARN. WHERE SPECIFIC INCOME FIGURES ARE USED, AND ATTRIBUTED TO AN INDIVIDUAL OR BUSINESS, THOSE PERSONS OR BUSINESSES HAVE EARNED THAT AMOUNT. THERE IS NO ASSURANCE YOU’LL DO AS WELL. IF YOU RELY UPON OUR FIGURES; YOU MUST ACCEPT THE RISK OF NOT DOING AS WELL.

ANY AND ALL CLAIMS OR REPRESENTATIONS, AS TO INCOME EARNINGS ON THIS WEB SITE, ARE NOT TO BE CONSIDERED AS AVERAGE EARNINGS. TESTIMONIALS ARE NOT REPRESENTATIVE.

THERE CAN BE NO ASSURANCE THAT ANY PRIOR SUCCESSES, OR PAST RESULTS, AS TO INCOME EARNINGS, CAN BE USED AS AN INDICATION OF YOUR FUTURE SUCCESS OR RESULTS.

Given below is part of a particular web site promoting work at home jobs to earn high figures in Dollars. You are directed to these words when you just open the site.

The visitors to the web site are initially greeted with this type of words. They then come across lengthy discussions on the matters such as the importance of earning money to support the families and spend a better life, easiest ways to make money online, history of the organisation, affiliations of the organisation with large business organisations etc.

Statements such as the following can be found when you move down the site to encourage the visitor to read the entire content of the site or at least to visit the site further down up to the bottom.

“All You Have to Do to Make Money From Home is Follow These Simple Steps - That’s It!”

Start Making Money Within MINUTES...

Fill out as many forms as you can because the more forms you fill, the more exposure it will give the companies you choose and this will increase the number of orders for their products. You’ll make more money and they’ll make money.

Everyone is happy - it’s that simple!

If you’re not satisfied with the results you get with in the next 60-Days,

I personally guarantee that it’ll change your life. Otherwise…

Then you might come across testimonials with and without photographs by people who are identified as those who have already used the method or system or whatever and earned money and currently spend lucrative lives with the money earned.

Very few web sites provide at least some indications about what you should do to earn money. One such web site has provided the following details as sample jobs.

Adplacing: Place ads on internet adsites for our clients. Each ad placed earns you 10 - 30 cents.

Write A News Letter Article:
You will be required to write an article on working at home or internet marketing. IE Best places to advertise, Cost effective advertising, good software. Article should be approx 100 - 250 words.

At the end of the web site the visitor is invited to make a payment for one of the following purposes:

  1. To obtain the membership of the organisation or the web site. The membership fees are to be paid monthly, quarterly or yearly or as "one life time payment".
  2. To purchase a software package developed by the promoters of the web site. This software, once installed, facilitates you to earn money may be for your life time as they claim.

The fees that you should pay for the membership or to buy the software vary from site to site. Most of the sites offer a huge discount ranging from 40% to 80% and this discount may be available for a limited period only such as 7 days, 3 days or 1 day or even for a short time like 4 hours. But if you visit the site next day or even after 7 days, you will see that the same limited period discount is still available.

Dear Reader,

You may be having your own experiences about this type of web sites. Have you done any research about them? Have you paid any money to them either to get their membership or to buy software or for any other purpose? If so, have you earned any money at least to recover the amount paid or just wasted your money by making a payment to an unknown party and become a victim of scam web site?

Let us share your experiences about the subject with others who are interested in making money online. You are invited to make a comment but it is advisable to refrain from giving the identity of the parties concerned in your comments.

Open a blog. Make sure it's specific to soeimhtng you can write about and focused. If you like photography, write about that. If you like skateboarding or surfing, then that. Go to google and put up some adsense ads. Google will pay you by check, that's how the pay me and I'm outside of Canada. Be patient and if you stay focused you'll start getting some visitors who are interested in the topic and they click on the google ads. 0Was this answer helpful?

Ha! Thanks a lot Rose for your long comment which clearly gives your experience on the subject.

As you said, once in a way there may be such really useful things. But since most of the web sites that talk about making money online are entirely opposite to this kind of things, you may not try the real once also. In fact I first came to know about HubPages from a CD which I purchased from a bookshop. That particular CD was published in our own Sinhalese language. And it was written on making money online. I heard recently that part 2 of that CD has been published now but I still couldn't try and I think I have done more research on the subject than them now.

Currently I am getting some emails from some "generous" people who want to share with me a large amount of funds like US $ 50,000,000 or even more in bank accounts at non-existing banks like Bank of Africa, Congo etc. I just put them to the spam folder. If I really got those money, I would have beaten Bill Gates also by now.

When I first started checking out ways to make money on the internet, I came across all of the types of websites you are talking about. But I am a very cautious person when it comes to spending my money. If I found something that sounded too good to be true, I immediately rejected that one. Ocassionally I came across one that might seem legitimate so I did some research on the web to see what other people online were saying about it. Most of the time those were something I didn't want to try either. But I did come across an ebook for 19.95 (no other fees or membership fees) that explained all the ways to make money online writing with sites like HubPages for passive income and other sites that pay you a set price for your article. It also outlined a step-by-step process to writing your own ebook and how to market it. It was a very informative ebook with very good advice and looking back, worth the expense. It suggested some good, free sites to start writing for and once you are a member of an online community, you find out very quickly how everything works and which sites work and which are not worth your time. Many wish those sites that promise money overnight were true. If they were we'd all be rich! Thank you for sharing your experiences.

Thanks Iluvceleb for stopping by and making a useful comment.

I knew that there it is difficult to spot few legitimate sites especially with data entry positions. Perhaps it would be better to check other sites that offered freelancing tips. Anyway, thanks for sharing an article.

Thanks Springboard and Jill of alltrades for your comments.

True. Most of them try to sell a dream and earn money. I also do the same thing. Mostly I just ignore this type of emails and web sites. But once in a way I visit the site and just go through the attractive wording they use and then close it at the point when they ask for payment for membership or software package or Book.

I am interested in getting feedback from those who have made a payment and got the membership or bought the software or book or whatever. Then only we can see the integrity of these people.

You said it all here! I have seen examples of all those websites. I always close them every time payment is asked about membership or a nice little book, etc.

Thanks for sharing!

You have to call these out for what they are. Scams. Plain and simple. In real business if the idea is real good, attracting real investors is never an issue. These kinds of things are there only for the purpose of selling a dream, and looking for individuals naive enough to think it could be so easy.
