We all get tons of email every day that promises us the world but delivers nothing in return for your money.
If we follow a few simple rules we can avoid falling into their trap!
When you open an email or click on links in email that are questionable or from someone you do not know you can be downloading malware programs that steal your personal information.
Make it a rule to never open unfamiliar emails or click on any of the links there. They can be deadly to your finances and your computer.
There are anti-malware programs you can use that do a great job at filtering out malware, but you really need to buy the programs, the free ones do not do a very good job at protecting you.
You can do a Google search for these programs. Stick with the familiar ones, they are the best and check the program reviews. Customer reviews are the best way to get information on any product or program as these are the people who have purchased them.
Internet Scam Programs
Listing all the scam programs on the net would be impossible as there are so many of them.
The best rule of thumb to remember is, and I know this sounds cliche, but if it sounds too good to be true, it almost always is.
Nobody gives away or even sells information on how to get rich quick, they do it themselves, and they are more than likely getting rich on selling you their program.
A few rules to follow when you are approached is to first and foremost avoid any program that promises to make you a said amount of money or for that matter really promises you anything as far as success.
We have all heard the claim: “Make a six-figure income working from home 2 hours a day!”
Or: “You can make $1000.00 a day by following our program!”
There are zero programs out there that can guarantee this or any amount of money at all, and anyone making that claim is flat out lying to you to get your money.
How about the old ad that says: Recruit five people and share in their profits. Make unlimited residual money!
This is almost always the Multi-Level Marketing scam at its finest!
Stay away from any multi-level marketing programs unless you are really experienced at these. In order to make money with these programs, you must be an incredibly good recruiter of members as this is how you make money. Most people think it is all about selling products, but that is simply not true, and if they tell you that they are lying to you to get your money.
Multi-Level Marketing is all about the recruiting process, and it is very difficult and time-consuming and the success rate is in the single digits.
Programs That Sell You Links, Likes, Or automatic Traffic
These programs are usually all bogus and the owners are simply out to take your money.
If you are looking for any of the above you need to grow them naturally over time by targeting your audience and gaining their trust.
These programs can actually hurt your business and they are not worth the risk.
