Get The Details Here On The List Internet Scam Artists Techniques!
Do Not Be So Easily Fooled!
Just as there is a thing like an escapist or con-artist, there is a newcomer in town:
The Scamming Artist.
There are millions upon millions of scams online. They mostly target you in e-mails.
Their mindset is to grab your hard-earned money and make you look like a complete fool because you played right into their hands with all the cheating and deception. It is in the best of interests to be cautious and most wise with proceeding on this matter. When in doubt, be sure to research it thoroughly. Chances are there are bound to be a breach or 2.
As much as we want to believe an internet advertisement is accurate enough to make money online, it is always a good rule of thumb to read the details again and again. Is it too convincing? Does it seem real? Can I go through with this and be successful even without having to do too much work?
Take Into Consideration the Following:
1) Images and Videos.
- You might have encountered these online scams where they post images of luxury cars, big mansions, and other highly rich necessities. They are mostly fake. Its a crafty technique they use to emphasize: “Seeing is believing.” As we are visual by nature, the pictures are placed there to look like they are so appealing enough to lure you in. If you come across a website that showcases an image like that at the very top of trying to promote their services, please hit the Back Button asap. These people are making you chase after something that is not a reality, they brag about their obsessive greed that online success happens overnight. If only it were that simple to accomplish, but it truly isn’t. With using cheap baits like this to lure you in like a fish from the sea, they are more likely to be materialistic minded and would offer nothing of important value for you personally.
- Videos itself can be quite misleading as they tend to play with our emotions head on to make a decision fast without a moment to lose. Actual proof of an online scam program success story being found is pretty rare, so take that into consideration as a huge red flag. Not to mention that if someone brags about saying that they were on the news or so donating to a just cause, it may not be easily found there either.
2) False Advertisement.
- You may have paid a one-time fee of $97 like I did with an online program that you thought was good, but I kid you not when I tell you this. I went back to their page, and saw the price dropped from $97 to $77. Right then and there, that is a sure sign warning you, that this online program is up to no good, there’s more to it than meets the eye. Looks can be quite deceiving if you don’t re-read the content the online scam is glorifying over about. In most cases, there is a catch to everything. All online scam programs have advantages and disadvantages of some sort or another. But, the tricky part is finding a program that has more advantages outweighing the disadvantages. Speaking of which, Wealthy Affiliate is one of the few programs out there online where the benefits outweigh the risks.
3) Fake and not Real People.
- Example: I tried to go on YouTube.com and Google.com to search more information on Kelly Scott from Home Internet Careers, but I found nothing. No proof if the person was real at all.
- There will be online scam programs that use multiple names for a person where they have a stock photo of them in an advertisement but refer to them with many different names.
4) No Online Support.
- Example: When I was trying to get a hold of pressing the Online Support or Chat Button, it was faded out, no pop-up window or screen came where I can talk or ask questions. Even if you e-mail message them for any trouble you are facing, suppose they never answer you back at all in a time orderly fashion, please try to avoid the program altogether since clearly this shows lack of concern whether you succeed in their program or not. You are on your own to make your own critical thinking skills flourish as you try and struggle to be on your own two feet not relying on someone else to spoon-feed you. Worst case scenario would be if they don’t respond back to you at all, but they send you Spammy E-mails in your Inbox instead of keeping in touch with you and your ongoing progress through their program.
5) Unresponsive To Questions.
- Communication in this day and age is a big deal. If the online scam you are
looking into is not responding back promptly to your e-mails to them, they most likely don’t care about checking up with your progress.
6) Rushed To Make A Final Decision.
- “Buy now or miss this opportunity.” Don’t give in to pressure tactics. Remember, the “opportunity” is a chance to pay for information you could find yourself for free. I simply hate time restriction constraints. It could be something like: “You have 5 minutes to Join the Program or else” this Website Page will disappear if you don’t take action right now.
7) Space is Limited.
- With a phrase like: “Only 8 Spots left, book it before you lose your Position to someone else for this online program.” Another scenario could be that they list a fake meter where it says: Only 3 positions left in your area, apply now to hold your spot before someone else grabs it. That speaks taking desperate measures into one’s own two hands, in other words you are being rushed to make a decision fast or you lose all the benefits if someone else would replace your spot in the online program.
- Even if you make the cutoff to join the Program with only a few Spots left, who is to say that the number won’t change at all in case the Website shifts over under a new name? Clearly that means the System is rigged, it has its flaws laid out, number doesn’t change, that’s a big problem, its fake, that raises a huge Red Flag in my book.
- I personally like online programs where they include everyone who applies to be a part of their services, don’t you? it is best to feel included, rather than to be feeling left out.
8) You Don’t Earn An Income.
- With even a program that says no work required, be wary that this may be a sign that if you invest your own time/effort in could lead to no profit seed growth at all. Especially if they claim the system is automated by the click of a button.
- Even as you try to join the online scam and the program they are a part of, as you dive in deeper, they try to get you involved in paying for additional programs that could earn you extra money. In reality, its not you earning the income, but they are with their false lies and promises. So, please be more wary of these kinds of offers as there are many more craftier ones who even become so desperate to make money off of you, that they change their website name and logo symbol to something else. Then, its like a cycle of them running away and obtaining your money one way or another.
- Other instances could include you signing up for offers while they in the back office are earning commissions like crazy when you are doing the hard work for them. In other words, you are a pawn or puppet in this scenario.
- If you are part of a Online Program that is like MLM or a Pyramid Scheme, sure you may earn some money promoting the Product, but the real truth hits you hard when you discover the Owners behind the Online Program are the real ones earning the big bucks while you struggling by with all the hard work you do. In other words, you are simply being taken advantage of for someone elses’ personal gain and not working for yourself realizing your own potential.
9) Unrealistic Statistics on how much money you can make.
- I mean come on, does it seem to sound reasonable one can make $3,500 per month doing just simply online paid surveys alone? Other unrealistic claims could be make $50 or $75 per survey when in truth you spend a great deal of time wasting it away just by earning pennies or a few dollars? Again, as I mention, it is clearly not worth your time and effort to get involved with such Online Programs.
10) You do not get your Refund Back.
- It is quite a harsh reality when you are confronted with the bad news that they won’t refund the money back to you for the online program you applied for even if they said something like 30 or 60-day Money Back Guarantee. If an Online Program you are involved with are trying out just for curiosity purposes, it is honestly not worth your time when they deny giving you a Refund. That in itself is very poor Customer Service Management.
11) DON’T give your Social Security Number (SSN) to anyone, NOT even Affiliate Programs you Sign Up for Online.
That is highly classified personal information, only you alone need to remember what that is. You may disclose information about your home address and the credit or debit card you used to Sign Up for the Affiliate Program, but giving away your Social Security Number to someone reveals to them of your identity.
