The internet revolution has opened up countless opportunities for people who want to make money online selling products or services, and for those who just want to start their own businesses.
Unfortunately, this wonderful online world is now congested with work from home “opportunities” that are merely scams. Providing all misleading information and claims about how much money you can make and charging big fees to find jobs are just some of today’s many online scams.
Here is some useful information to be aware of when looking for a new online opportunity
1. Typing at home money making scam
Such Ads for these types of jobs are usually found in the writing section of craigslist or work-from-home job posts. Such ads promise you will make hundreds and or thousands of dollars weekly or monthly typing for companies that work overloaded and need your help.
Yes it Sounds simple enough, but the catch is you have to pay to get the company listings that averages from $60 to $120, you may get a PDF OR A little booklet of addresses and phone numbers of dozens of companies that might be looking for a writer with no guarantee that the companies will hire or even looking to hire anyone.
2. The very popular Get paid to surf the Web scam
Such scamy programs promise to pay you just for visiting certain Web sites throughout the day and all you need to do is just keep clicking on certain links and banners to get paid. But there is a catch! In most cases you are required to sign up for certain services and promotions to qualify for payment.
And In almost all cases, you will have to sign up with a credit card that will be charged until you cancel. So, You’ll be very busy keeping tracking of cancellations and subscriptions, and may end up getting charged for much more than what you earned if you earned any in the first place!
3. The e-mail chain letter scam- this is the online copy of the regular mail chain letter
As usual it seem innocent enough at first; all you have to do is send B amount of dollars to the person at the top of the list, add your name to the bottom of the list, and then forward it on to B number of friends.
This scam promises that whoever participates can expect to receive money from the next person on the list. But This hardly happens because the creator of the chain letter often keeps his/ her name at the top of the list.
4. The Get rich quick with Google Adsense scam
This program can be a profitable venture for Web site business owners, but you can only benefit from it when you create unique content and promote your site honestly.
The Google Adsense “Website kits” and “Adsense ready” programs are recent scams that promise you can make money online just by owning a template Web site filled with tens of pages of content. But such shady sites receive little or no rankings from search engines so your site will never be seen or your ads are clicked.
5. The Turnkey Web sites and the so called autopilot income
These scams are part of the latest batch of online scams, promising to generate very big profits. With all you have to do is purchase a Web site package and recruit other people who purchase the same package you just bought so you can earn a commission on the sale.
It’s the old and lovely multilevel marketing (MLM) program in disguise, and absolutely not worth a dime of investment, you will not earn a penny with this thing.
