Commission Crusher Scam Review
They Are Serious
Every single day, without fail, my email inbox is flooded with an array of new, improved, never before released or secret system offers. I don't care how many times I block, spam folder or remove my email address from these lists, I can't seem to stop the flow.
Every once in a while, I click the link to see what these hucksters are gaming. It almost always ends up being the same. They show me a "secret" video with "secret information. You Google the name of the system and all you get is a bunch of scam reviews that tell you nothing about the system.
They don't tell you a thing about the system because they are nothing more than affiliates that want you to buy that particular system using their affiliate link. If you ever go to Clickbank you will know why these people want you to use their link. They can earn up to 75% commission or more if you buy using that link.
Rough math, if you by a $97 product, the person whos link you use to get to that marketers site will earn over $70. Not bad for just posting a few articles, posts, blogs and such. And those who get on the first page of the search engines can earn a pretty penny indeed.
No, I do NOT earn $237,412.59 per month and I can honestly say that most of us will not earn such sums our first month online while only working 20 minutes a day. Not that it cannot be done because many people do earn that and more but I can guarantee you they work more than 20 minutes per day to achieve it.
So what about this new software? What about this hacker insider stuff this new system says its all about? First let me say I did NOT buy the system. Here is why. (And if the author of the system truly is a genius hacker then he can hack this site and take this down without being noticed, but for some reason, I think you will get to read this without an issue.) It looks, feels, sounds and smells like just about every other "new" or "secret" or "loophole" system already on the market.
The sad thing is, this guy will probably earn hundreds of thousands of dollars taking other people's money.
What does this system promise? Well according to the video and squeeze page it promises exactly the same thing that all the other Internet marketing gurus promise. Big pay day for you if you use their secret system they spend days or weeks and thousands of dollars developing. All you have to do is spend a small $37 or $47 bucks to get this priceless information or system.
This system says everything that every other offer I have ever seen says. I could change the name of the system to just about anything and it would be the same otherwise. "Work only 5 hours per week." "Push 6 buttons only." "Has nothing to do with...(you fill in the blank)"
In this particular case, he sort of tells you what he is offering which is the only thing different from most other offers. He tells you his new "hacker" software scours the Internet for money making offers. Hmmm, sounds like Clickbank. But he bashes Clickbank in his video so I guess you can assume he is going "off Clickbank" to find offers for you to promote.
Now, is this guy getting rich by selling only 500 copies (that's what his video says) at $47 per copy? Of course not. Even if it is software you are not going to get the FULL system for $47 bucks nor are you going to get everything you need with that system.
How do I know? You see 2 years ago I bought a system that promised what the above promises. Do you know I still get "insider" offers from this marketer even to this day? Yes and some of those things he markets to me cost ... wait for it ... $2995.00. Yes almost 3 grand. Oh and the software I bought that he said in his video was all I needed? Well as it turned out I needed a hell of a lot more to get his system to work properly.
I needed to use this specific web host. Of which he provided an affiliate link. I needed this other piece of software and if I really wanted to make the system "pop" I needed to join his insider network system for $97 per MONTH. So much for my $47 dollar investment and so much for the limited number of 500 copies issues.
Oh, the trick with the 500 copies? And I get this from reliable sources. It is not the 500 front end copies they talk about. Its 500 memberships that they promote on the back end. They fill up their back end membership with 500 or 1000 members and when one finally wises up and stops spending their hard earned cash, they just replace them with another. Yes, that is where they make the thousands upon thousands of dollars. On the back end.
So even with this so called hacker inspired Commission Crusher system, you are NOT going to get the full system for only $47 bucks. Why else is there a lack of full disclosure about this system? You are going to get bombarded with offer after offer after offer to get you to spend up to $5 grand of your hard earned money.
After all, if you actually made $9 million per year (as this guy claims) and you spent 3 or 4 sleepless nights writing code and testing and testing and fixing bugs, would you give it all away for only $47 bucks? Hey I'm a nice guy but even I am not that nice.
Can you do what this guy and every other guru promises? Can you do it without being sucked into their sales funnel of never ending offers to separate you from your cash? Yes. If they did it, then anyone can. You will, of course, have to spend more than 20 minutes per day in order to do it.
The wealthiest bloggers and marketers today that are honest will tell you there are no real short cuts. It took them months even years to build their business to the level it is today. And yes, many of them do make a million dollars per year but they didn't do it the very first month in business. Most likely you wont either, unless you decide that scamming people is the best way for you to earn money.
If you want to check out Commission Crusher for yourself WITHOUT an affiliate link then go to www.commission-crusher.com. No, I wont make a penny if you foolishly buy this program. By the way, even though this guy in the video slams Clickbank, the link that I got in my email box from a would be wealthy marketer, was a Clickbank hop link. So much for bashing Clickbank.
Do I need to say more?
UPDATE November 2014
I continue to see a plethora of get rich quick or get rich overnight systems being invented and hawked online. However, affiliate programs seem to be waning being replaced by how to make money with your own products on Amazon or Ebay or another online retail site.
I have been selling online since 2009 on Amazon. I have been selling online in one form or another since the year 2004. I can tell you there is no easy way to make money on any of these sites. The process may be simple but it is not easy and you cannot take short cuts. The big sites will BLOCK YOU FOR LIFE if you try some of the tricks these gurus are selling you.
Don't fall for it. If they are willing to sell you their "secrets" for under $100 you know two things are at play. One they are not telling you their true secrets but just repackaging stuff you can find out for free if you just Google, Bing or Yahoo the terms.
Second is the fact if you want to learn what they are doing you are going to be upsold to a package or coaching or both for hundreds or thousands of dollars. Don't fall for it.
Amazon to Ebay scam
One of the biggest scams out there right now is buy something on Amazon and sell on Ebay for more than you paid on Amazon. In other words doing retail arbitrage with Amazon as your retail source.
The problem with this is that you cannot use your Amazon Prime account for this. If you do, Amazon will ban you for life. Prime is for non commercial use ONLY. Secondly, Ebay frowns upon you doing this. Check out Ebay's terms of service in order to find out more about this.
Thirdly, if your customer gets a package that is branded by Amazon, your Ebay customer will give you a very bad rating, return the package for a refund and shop for the item on Amazon themselves. Yes this has happened to a number of people doing this.
There is a safe way to use Amazon and Ebay in conjunction with each other. Usually, sellers actually buy on Ebay, get the product or products in hand and then ship them off to Amazon FBA. Besides, with Ebay, you don't get paid until the product ships and the customer has it. How will you pay for the Amazon product if you don't have the cash from the Ebay customer? Bet those gurus don't tell you how to do that do they?
