Getting Started

Getting started by avoiding Internet scams

getting started bt avoiding scams

Getting started on the internet is not so easy, It’s a minefield out there in the search engines.

You ask the question, “How to make money online” and you are presented with all sorts scams and schemes.

You go from pillar to post seeking the holy grail of online success.

Does it Really exist?… I suspect not.

There are far too many scams out there confusing everyone. Making you feel as though it’s impossible to trust anyone who offers you a way to make extra cash.

But, what if I told you of a place that can give you a leg up to making yourself a success?

You wouldn’t believe me, and I understand, no really…

Because, both you and me have been through a few scams of our own. And this, in fact, is the reason why I started this website. To show you how I got past the fake Gurus and made it to the next level.

Now I’m genuinely reaching down to pull you out of the mire and into a safe haven.

But first,

Let me tell you earnestly,

Your inbox will not get spammed. You will not be offered products that do not work. You will not need your debit card to get started.

Paying online with credit card.

And I’ll also add, this is the most credible place to learn online where it’s owners will demonstrate more respect for all it’s members.

By joining this online university, you will be taught how to succeed at creating a business. By using the correct methods and be steered well clear of the unscrupulous traps we often fall into when we search How to make money online.

Meaning that you will get the best up to date training showing you how to make an online income the right way.

So folks,

You will never have to go over to the dark zone and pay some anonymous Guru ever again.

In fact,

There must be millions of people out there that have been lead astray and cast to the wayside by these so called Gurus that tell us that we can have it all by buying into their scams and schemes software. These faceless thieves only have pure profit in mind and not your interests at heart.

Most of these self-styled guru’s look at only’taking’ from the customer. Meaning, they are solely concerned with making the sale, ‘taking’ the customers money.

For interest’s sake,

Let’s take a look at the all too familiar ‘hypey’ sales message…A real guru special.

Firstly, Whoever’s behind the scam would hire a twenty-something blonde bombshell called Tiffany for the day and pretend she’s their girlfriend/wife.

Internet Guru Girlfriend

Then rent a Porsche, Bentley or Ferrari for a day.

Next find a large detached house that’s for sale (and empty) -try the posh end of town…. and have some pictures of himself standing in the driveway and in front of the house, maybe sitting in the seat of the hire car.

Now that they have their pictures, it’s onto the text.Headline first. It reads something like:

“At Last! The Worlds Greatest money-making  Plug-In Software That spews out cash like a broken ATM…  While YOU can lie on the beach all day drinking cocktails … So Simple To Use Even Your Granny Can Make bank From this software”

Then they write about how he (fake name here) were so broke that he had to beg, steal and borrow just to pay the bills.

Really lays the ‘broke’ bit on thick. Getting you pulled into his sob story and trying to connect with you emotionally.

Then tells how he took one last shot at changing his circumstances, broke into his daughter’s piggy bank in one final act of desperation, went to a seminar, had an epiphany about some SECRET way to make bank…Got home, stayed awake for three nights solid and created a business.

Now he is worth millions, and he wants to SHARE his SECRET with just you and a few others .So far, so good?

Bonus time.

Towards the end of the letter he needs to include 17(worthless)bonuses – to make it seem like you’re getting a good deal…. but will never be useful to you at all.

Smoke and mirrors

Adds in a lifetime guarantee (which of course they have no intention of honoring), sell it for $37.00 …Then add one of those annoying ‘splash pages’ that give you the ‘wait! option as you click off the page, offering their product for $27.00.

Meanwhile, the clock counter is counting down to make you feel like you must get in quick, using scarcity tactics to make you click credit card in hand.

And that is how they pull us into the scam with their classic sales letter.

And once you’re on the inside , it’s up sell after up sell til you’ve been well and truly fleeced. Reality check green tick

But what he doesn’t care about is how tons of angry customers have been fleeced and once again feel ripped off.

And we promised ourselves we will NEVER ever order anything from them again.

But of course, we went off searching for another way to seek a quick and easy fortune.
