Avoid Online Marketing Scams

I know we all have in one way or another ran across something online that just sounds to good to be true and for that I have created this page to help people avoid online marketing scams.

Unfortunately, scams are constantly popping up everywhere on the internet and even more so when it comes to trying to make honest money online.How To Avoid Online Scams

So, If it sounds to good than LEAVE IT ALONE because that is your first indication that you are about to be scammed.

Now for the most part all of us out there surfing the web have enough sense to avoid online scams when we see them.

However, the same advancements in technology that makes our lives easier also help make the scam artists job easier too and that can make it rather difficult at times to determine if you have stumbled upon a good thing or just another run of the mill scam.

Scam Warning Signs

Now I have spent a lot of time and effort in trying to become successful making honest money online and I can tell you this from experience…

If you are not having to work for it then it’s just not real.

Being that scams are getting harder to recognize and I don’t want anyone else falling victim to these bottom feeders as I have I decided to do something to help avoid online scams.

First we need to know the warning signs to look for that should raise a red flag for us all.

No Contact Info

This is usually a very good sign that you are about to embark into a scam product.

This is the case for some scams out there, they don’t leave any way for the consumer of the product to get in contact with them to dispute the product or to ask for a return of their funds spent.

Well why would they because after all they make their money by selling crap.

Non Responsive 

If you do happen to find a website that is offering you a product that lays claim to fame than first check and see if the support from that site is legit.

See if you can easily locate a way to contact them if you are able to than the next thing you should do is try an get a response from them.

Simply ask them a quick question in reference to their product and sit back and wait.

If it takes them any more than 48 hours to get back to you than this is probably not a sound investment because if you do buy in and need help one day who knows how long it will take for them to answer you.

Unreal Payouts

Ways To Avoid Online Scams

If the site you find is littered with unbelievable weekly and monthly paychecks of thousands upon thousands of dollars than you can rest assured that what you have found is absolutely bogus.

I’m here to tell you that checks like that just don’t happen after only a few weeks or a couple of months.

Like I had said earlier it takes time and effort to make money online.

It will never happen over night. NEVER!!!

Money Back Guarantee

Especially the 60 day money back guarantee. If the product that you are interested in is constantly referring to the money back guarantee during their product promotion you can bet that what they are selling you is of very low quality.

Now don’t get me wrong here because there are some honest products out there that also offer a money back guarantee with their product but they will typically not be referring to it every other sentence.

Also something else you should be aware of is that the fraudulent products that offer the money back guarantee typically make it very difficult to cash in on it or they try to make it difficult enough that people will just give up trying..

All Video No Results

Usually if you find a product that is all video and no real information about the product than keep your money.

You have just stumbled upon a site selling a product that is so worthless that they are afraid to tell you about it because you would be able to see threw it in the first 60-90 seconds or the product that they are selling does not exist.

Either way it is not something you want to waste your money on unless your are in need of a high dollar paper weight.

Lavish Pictures

This is my personal favorite. When you get to a site and there is all these pictures of high end cars, mansions, and people laying around on a cruise ship looking happy enough to make you puke.

So it grabs your attention and you continue to scroll thru the pages content but yet you are unable to find any pictures of their product or an information about it for that matter.

I think that it is hilarious myself because after all does that really work. So needless to say if you find a site like this I don’t think you need me to tell you that it is a complete scam.


Lastly, what I want to warn you of is up sells.

Up sells are one of the most common of the scam world and they tend to be found when you buy a product at what you believe to be a cheap buy in.This is when you buy a product or program for one usually reduced price and after they get you signed in to their program that’s when the up selling starts.

An example of this is when you buy a product they start bombarding you with other similar products all while telling you that you have to have it to get the full potential of the product you initially bought . Or even worse you are told by the seller of the product that what you just bought is pretty much useless unless you buy the upgraded version.

So if this happens to you I suggest if a refund is an option that you take advantage of it while you still can because it is only going to get worse.

An Awesome Place to Learn

As you already know there is quite a bit of bogus advertisements that promise to make you rich beyond your wildest dreams.

make money online by avoiding online marketing scams

I sincerely hope that what I have written for you will help you identify scams in your future endeavors but at the same time I don’t want to scare you off from the legit offers that are out there.

Granted the ones worth it are much harder to come by but if you can sift through all of the BS you will a few programs that can and will make you honest money online.

I can’t speak from experience on all the ones that work but I can tell you which one I found that does.

It is called Wealthy Affiliate and well it was the first program I found that was legit and it is also the last one I have ever tried.

After signing up as a free member(no credit card at all) they gave me two free websites and walked me through the steps of setting them up and helped me get them up and running.

So no matter which direction you decide to go or which program you decide to pick the best piece of advice I can give you is never commit to a program unless they are going to give you a chance to try out their product absolutely free.

After all if they are so sure that it works and will work for you than what do they have to loose by letting you get a sneak peak.

I really hope this was helpful in learning the scam warning signs to look for so you can better avoid online marketing scams. If you have any questions or comments feel free to leave them and share this with anyone that you think it may help.

    Hi there Miron,

    Hope all is well and that you have success with your new site you’re creating.

    There are a boatload of, what I call “Money Sucking Scammers”, out there waiting to pounce on their next unsuspecting victims.

    So it is critical to know what to look for before committing to any knew business ventures or money making training programs.

    That is not something you will need to worry with anymore now that you have joined the ranks of WA.

    Thanks for stopping by and taking the time.

    Look forward to hearing from you again soon,

    Hi Jason,
    I really like your post and I can say it’s so relevant today and it will be relevant in the future as well. It’s a human nature to believe in earning quick and easy money, even though they heard and read about scams 100 times.

    Most of the scams start with “free webinars” promising to replace your income within a few months with a simple method or bunch of videos telling you it’s time to replace your 9-5 income, or offering a huge discount if you pay now.

    I also was one of them who paid, but was very lucky to get a refund.It wasn’t easy at all.

    I agree with you Jason, it’s only Wealth Affiliate program is a real place where you can learn the internet marketing from scratch and succeed.

    Hi Janice,

    He begged you….HaHaHa……Now that’s Funny stuff.

    Good to know you got your money back out of him and this might be a bit mean but I hope it sent him to the poor house.

    People like that make me sick and honestly really piss me off. That is why I made this site, for that sole reason, to help folks take the bulls-eye off their back and have an honest chance for the same opportunity that I have.

    Obtaining online income and success is not a road that has short cuts and is much easier to obtain from hard hard and perseverance.

    Sounds like you are as well a member of the WA community so you have obviously already found a new marketing home. Congratulations!
    Thanks for Reading,

    Hi Jason, What a great post! I can relate to many of your own observations on what to watch out for in the scam warning signs. I had one guy beg me not to ask for my money back yet his video boasted how much money he was making. The two don’t fit together really. I did get refunded I’m pleased to say, it was $800!

    You mention Wealthy Affiliate and that is a fantastic online education platform – honest, affordable and the way to go for anyone wanting to make a living online. All the best, Janice.
