Scammer: takesurveysforcash.com - A Typical Pyramid System

by Rudolf Faix 9. June 2015 09:01

A mind blowing offer of $9,045.50 every month has been going ahead LinkedIn to my consideration. Common is that such offers are finished by pleasant young ladies, with no data in their profile, maybe a couple bunch participations and with less then 10 contacts.

TakeSurveysForCash.com

The offer from takesurveysforcash.com sounds pipe dream, which are typically not genuine. They are propelling that you can get for filling surveys. Nobody will pay you for filling studies, they are simply assembling your data for offering them in the best case. Headway goes into the masses and no association likes to get the supposition of only an unobtrusive bundle people, for this they are not prepared to pay you gigantic wholes for adjusting a couple studies.

Another issue is, that nobody will lift a way to deal with procure like a CEO if he not oblige your money for this salary. By examining the takesurveysforcash site, then we find the inspiration driving why they are spamming the interpersonal association regions - it is their auxiliary framework. That is the way how the people from takesurveysforcash are gaining money with their stunning progression.

How to earn really with takesurveysforcash.com is written at their affiliate site:

EARN A MASSIVE 75% ON EVERY SALE! UP TO $78 PER SALE!

If we take a look into their disclaimer, then we see that the promised earnings are not really true:

If you read their disclaimer, then you'll see that their promotion is misleading. With other words it is nothing else then scam.If they would be really based in the European Union, like Scamadviser likes to guess, then the promotion would be a case for the law court and the above disclaimer would not help them.

A serious company is proud about her name and reputation and does not need to hide herself behind an anonymizing service. Only criminals need to hide themselves.

Fraud & Scam

Scammer: click4surveys.com - A Typical Pyramid System

by Rudolf Faix 9. June 2015 07:16

Click4SurveysBy taking a look at the promotion I ask myself why someone goes for work a full month, if he can earn more then average within a few hours of work? An offer which sounds too good to be true isn't true. It is in the most cases only scam or fraud. The same situation is with the offer from click4surveys.com. They are promoting that you can earn for filling surveys better than a CEO. Promotion goes into the masses and no company likes to get the opinion of only a handful people, for this they are not able to pay you big sums for filling out some surveys.

Nobody will promote a way to earn like a CEO if he does not need your money for this earnings. By taking a closer look at the click4surveys website, then we find the reason why they are spamming the social network sites - it is their affiliate program. That is the way how the members of click4surveys are earning money with their unbelievable promotion:

Product Price
Front End:  $97 -  downsell to $34  -  down to $19 
Back End:  $197 -  downsell to $67 -  down to $37
Extremely High Converting $7 Rebill (low price means they never cancel)
These can be LIFETIME commissions.
Earn Up To $183 PER customer in total!
Affiliate Earnings: 70% Commission

This example shows us how important it is to read the disclaimer, which is normally very small printed. We find an answer at the end of the site, where is written in the disclaimer: "span style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;">The typical purchaser does not make any money using this system"!

This site and the products and services offered on this site are not associated, affiliated, endorsed, or sponsored by Google, ClickBetter, eBay, Amazon, Yahoo or Bing nor have they been reviewed tested or certified by Google, ClickBetter, Yahoo, eBay, Amazon, or Bing. The typical purchaser does not make any money using this system. Click4Surveys.com does not guarantee income or success, and examples shown in this presentation do not represent an indication of future success or earnings. The company declares the information shared is true and accurate.

As the site is U.S. based we find at the end of the website a FTC disclaimer, where is written, that the person found in the testimonials/endorsment got paid for publishing their opinion. This show us already the fake:

FTC disclosure: The persons found in the testimonials/ endorsements on this page have received monetary incentives to publish their opinions about Click4Surveys. These persons were part of an initial trial group that received free access to the Click4Surveys program along with monetary payment for voicing their opinion about their experiences.

As the above warnings are not enough, click4surveys has one more disclaimer,where is written that there is is no guarantee that you will earn any money:

Click4Surveys.com Earnings Disclaimer: Every effort has been made to accurately represent this product and it's potential. Even though this industry is one of the few where one can write their own check in terms of earnings, there is no guarantee that you will earn any money using the techniques and ideas in these materials.

Earning potential is entirely dependent on the person using our product, ideas, techniques and the effort put forth. We do not purport this as a "get rich scheme." Your level of success in attaining the results claimed in our materials depends on the time you devote to the program, ideas and techniques mentioned, knowledge and various skills. Since these factors differ according to individuals, we cannot guarantee your success or income level. Materials in our product and our website may contain information that includes or is based upon forward-looking statements within the meaning of the securities litigation reform act of 1995.

They use words such as "anticipate," "estimate," "expect," "project," "intend," "believe," "plan," and other words and terms of similar meaning in connection with a description of potential earnings or financial performance. Any and all forward looking statements here or on any of our sales material are intended to express our opinion of earnings potential. Many factors will be important in determining your actual results and no guarantees are made that you will achieve results similar to ours or anybody else's, in fact no guarantees are made that you will achieve any results from our ideas and techniques.

Scamadviser says about click4surveys.com:

Low Trust Rating. This Site May Not Be Safe to Use.
Site is United States based,But The Real Location Is Being Hidden
Alert Result: The owner of the website is using a service to hide their identity
Alert Result: This website has been listed as having malware.
Alert Result: This website is 1 Years old
Good Result: This website is deemed to be popular by Alexa with a ranking of 34346

A serious company is proud about her name and reputation and does not need to hide herself behind an anonymizing service.

Some additional comments from other users are found at the site of Scamadviser too. The most of them have the opinion that click4surveys is nothing else then scam.

Conclusion: It is a typical pyramid system with the touch of MLM/affiliate marketing. Only the people on the top are earning.

Fraud & Scam

Affiliate Marketing - is it a way for getting rich?

by Rudolf Faix 8. June 2015 12:23

Affiliate MarketingLet us first take a view about the definition of being rich. My own definition of being rich is: It is not a matter of the amount of money you have. You’ll be rich if you are satisfied with that what you have. If you are not happy with your life then money cannot help you. Very poor are this ones, which are sitting in a golden cage already and are running behind their investments, because they cannot trust someone.

Affiliate marketing is an easy system. The affiliates are sending traffic to the seller for no cost. Only when a sale occurs then the affiliate gets her commission. The affiliate needs to have enough visitors on her homepage for earning something on this way. The most websites don’t have this traffic.

If your website has enough traffic then is an easy system:

  • Select an affiliate offer to promote
  • Send traffic to the sales page the way you like
  • And wait until someone buys something that you can make money online

 

The only problem for the affiliate is:

  • The customer is not the one of the affiliate
  • The affiliate gets only paid once
  • The advertiser may pull the offer
  • The advertiser may lower the payout
  • Competitors are coming up

Real business is done on by keeping the customer and inviting them for new offers. For this the most affiliate networks are offering a very high commission rate for the initial sale. They are making the big money in the recurring sales.

You can beat the system by the following steps:

  • Choose a series of affiliate products from the same interest you are promoting
  • Create a free eBook about the interest for giving away
  • Create a own squeeze page offering the free eBook
  • Promote and capture the leads generated by the squeeze page
  • Deploy and email auto responder for building up a relationship with your new subscribers
  • Recommend affiliate products and services for your subscribers
