Internet Income Scams- Don't Be Fooled

Internet Scams- Don't fall for them
Internet Scams- Don't fall for them

I would like to warn you to avoid giving your money to any of the internet 'gurus' who claim fortune by selling their cheap get-rich-quick schemes. Perhaps you may be familiar with the websites that promise a small fortune for a "low" price of only $39.95.


Just know that they do send you information, but for the most part they are just scams. Those are simply affiliates who copy their webpages from Clickbank or similar e-income sites. You can go to the 'clickbank' website and find the same affiliate pages that are being sold to unsuspecting desperate people. If those self-professed millionaires really made money from their websites and if they really own Ferrari's & have newly acquired mansions, then I think they should offer their income producing products free of charge....


If I discovered a get-rich-quick scheme that actually does produce a substantial income from the internet, I would charge a percentage from actual earnings, instead of collecting a sign up fee. If you can make a fortune in a month that allows you to go from zero to $20,000 in 30 days, then why profit from desperate fortune hunters before they can even afford your product? If those web sites produce actual results, then they shouldn't charge a fee to get it. They ought to give it away initially, let people make some money, and then get paid from their actual earnings.


Any ways, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for taking the time to read my hub. And also to my readers, and fellow writers please tell me your success stories, and how you have succeeded at making some money on the internet.

    Hello Penlady, I'm glad to help. I, of course, had to learn through experience. I now know that most of these listings are a result of people signing up as affiliates at clickbankdotcom, where anyone can sell crap on the internet and profit from unsuspecting customers seeking income venues. Check out some of my other hubpages for resources for real internet income venues.

    This is advice that needs to be given, especially with so many people turning to the internet for work.

    While searching for online work, I saw several scams. Thank God I never believed any of them because I know success doesn't come easy. I know that you have to work hard to earn a small amount of money; twice as hard to earn double.

    However, there are people who are desperately trying to earn money because they have bills, kids to feed, etc. And in times of desperation, such promises seem real. So, they try it in hopes of helping themselves; plus believing that the internet just might be the answer.

    That's why it's good to have hubs such as yours to warn people about such scams. The world has always been filled with con artists. Now, like everyone else, they've moved online.

    Thanks for writing. Voting up and useful.
