The Internet is huge, and there are a lot of scammers online, and you should always avoid them.
When I first started with IM I fell for some scams too, I worked with some PTC site, I invested in some stupid ideas and I bought some fake systems too. I am here today to help you avoid these 4 most common scams online and if you are a newbie you probably already tasted some of these scams.
I will also try to explain these scams for newbies so everyone can understand it.
1. PTC Sites
I mentioned this thing before and you can read my full story about these sites here in this article.
PTC sites are one of the main reasons why newbies quit working online and lose their motivation.
These sites will suck your whole day for 2$ profit and if you work long enough on these sites you will be so angry because you spent like 50 hours per week clicking and you made only 4$, and once you make 10$ and you are ready to withdraw money they don’t pay you.
So 90% of people who try these sites are convinced that making money online is 100% scam and they just can’t believe in any other method after they fail this one.
Never ever try working on PTC sites, but if you have some money you can create one, because the only people who are making any money out of these sites are their owners.
2. Trading Stocks and Investing in Stock Market as a Beginner
This is also one of the worst things you can try online if you are an IM newbie. I noticed some interesting promotions from Stock trading sites, they will give you free 50 or 100$ on their sites if you register there, and this is how they get newbies to work for them.
Once you register on some Trading site you will have to give them your Card number and everything so you can start trading stocks, well, most of the newbies start with this because they want some easy money and a huge profit possibility.
When you get free 100$ on these sites you risk your money too, because if you buy for example 100$ in Apple stocks, and if Apple stocks go down for 20$ in the next 24 hours, they will charge you 20$ from your Card.
There are a lot of tricks they can apply to you just to take some money from you and you should never believe these sites.
One important thing: You can’t become a successful Stock trader overnight, there are people online who can make tons of money trading stocks, but they spent years and decades learning how to invest and they read tons of information every day about companies they invest in.
Just like sports betting, there are some people who have developed algorithms for their bets and they can win sometimes, and if you start betting now with 0 knowledge about any club, league, and player, you will lose.
3. Money Making Systems
There are basically 10000+ money making systems online and 99% of them are scams.
You will often find these systems on some ad sites like Adf.ly and you will get some of them in your Email inbox.
They will often offer you 4000$ per day making money method from home and they will guarantee you refund in 30 or 100 days if you are not satisfied with their product.
First thing first, you can never ever start making 4000$ or more per day if you just read some book, and these systems are mostly divided in 2 price groups.
First group will offer you system for 400$ so you may think it’s some kickass system because they price it so high, and they often advertise these systems and sell 100s of them and they just delete everything connected with this system and they disappear so you can’t get your refund and you can’t sue them.
Second group is the low price system, they will sell you 9.99$ system and they will guarantee you 90$ per day system, so you may think it’s cheap because you can’t make as much money as with that expensive one from first example.
They advertise it, they get tons of sales and they delete this site and system and they disappear so you can’t trace them, and no one will sue you for 9.99$ so they use this system more often because no one will sue them and they can sell more systems at 9.99$ price.
How to recognize these systems?
Almost every time they sell these systems on their own sites and they never sell them through Clickbank or JVZoo.
Why is that so?
If they register on Clickbank for example, they will risk their ass to be sued because Clickbank will ask them for their personal details, and they have to give them in order to start selling, and when you ask for system refund you will do that through Clickbank, so if they can’t refund customers Clickbank will sue them for fraud.
4. Promoting Scam Websites
There are tons of things you can promote on Internet and some of them will offer you better commissions and better conditions so you can easily fall for these scams and you can start promoting them without even knowing anything about them.
If you promote some scam website you can lose your time, your money and your motivation.
Scam websites can be found in PPI, PPC, PTC and CPA industry, so if you work with these methods you should take care about this because you can lose money and precious time on these scams.
These scam sites are mostly well designed to attract customers, and most of them will attract you with Instant approval.
Popular CPA or PPI sites will maybe reject you and you will try some alternative, so you will find this Instant approval site, so you will start working for them.
After spending months and months trying to make some dimes with these sites you will find out only one thing:
When it comes to payout they will ban you and you will never get your money.
How to recognize scam websites?
One of the easiest ways to find out if some site is scam is to check their website age.
Go to this website you want to promote and take their main domain (homepage domain) and run it through this scanner.
Scanner will show you when did they make this website, so if website age is under 6-7 months never promote them, you should always tend to promote old and safe sites.
They can sometimes cheat this scanner, because sometimes they just buy some old domain and they create their site on it, so if they buy domain from 2011, scanner will show you that their website is 5 years old.
Before you use some website you should always check it on Google.
For example if you use some XCV Company, you can just Google: “XCV Company Scam” and you will get your results.
Why is this reliable method in detecting website scams?
It’s reliable because if this company scammed some other people before, they will write about this company on some Forums, Blogs, and pissed customer sites and you will be able to find these articles when you search for them on Google..
These are some of the most common ways to get into Making money trap online, and I will share more articles like this in the future because there are tons of people who are just 100% newbies in IM and Internet world, so it’s really easy to manipulate them.
But you shouldn’t feel guilty if you fell for some scams, everyone was a newbie once and it’s just important to recognize these scams when you see them next time.
