Money Making Scams

The majority of posts so far have dealt with money making scams in some way.  And we have dealt with these scams and tried to explain how to avoid them.  Yet despite the amount of scams we may cover, it is important to know how to deal with these scams before they ruin you.

Step 1: Be Suspicious. If something sounds too good to be true, chances are it is too good to be true.  Quite recently I was helping a friend job hunt.  More than a few times I was forwarded emails that promised my friend vast fortunes.  Yet the majority of these places, upon close scrutiny, turned out to be money making scams.  You would be surprised how many places prey on the unemployed.  Do not be afraid to ask questions and walk away from a situation that does not seem right.

Step 2: Medical Billing, Filling Out Surveys, Etc.  The bread and butter of the online money making scams.  I can spend hours elaborating the dangers of these systems.  Yet as I am sure you are aware, you have to work hard to make money.  Working for a few hours a day while sitting at your home computer will more than likely not make you a six-figure earner.

Step 3: Ask Questions.  I covered this in the earlier steps, but much like a house of cards, the more you pile on, the greater chance that the house of cards will collapse.  So too, the more questions you ask, the less likely the money making scam will stand up under close scrutiny.

Step 4: As the final tag in this blog says, be smart and use common sense.  We all want to make millions, and be the next Donald Trump.  Some of us may get lucky, some of us may not.  But the reality is that dreams are just that.  For them to become reality we will need to work hard.  And when we have worked as hard as we can, we will have to work even harder.  That is just a fact of life.

As always, be smart, and use common sense.
