Keep away from online scams - Identifying online scams

by Rudolf Faix 10. June 2015 04:18

Scam School9 out of 10 individuals who joined a work at home for escaping the daily rat-race, got scammed and never made a penny. The web has turned into a reproducing ground for these heartless online advertisers who utilizes misleading techniques to crush each penny out of you.

The primary reason for making this site is to help you evade these online scams. I can't stand seeing somebody doling their well deserved cash out to these deceitful scams. Scammers don't worry, I love you - grilled, fried, boiled, etc., especially if I can torture you before. :)

There are such a large number of scams out there on the web and just a pack of honest to goodness ones. So how would you stay away from every one of these scams?

Indications of scams

Scam Alert 1: Membership or Sign-Up Fee

In the most cases is such a fee only a scam - especially if you not get something in return. In such a case you know already how the upstream is getting paid and there is no product to trade. Such systems are in the most countries already forbidden by law.

Scam Alert 2: Domain ownership is hidden by a service

Real and serious companies are proud about their name. They are not using some services, which hides their name or address at the domain registry. Only private individuals and scammer need to hide their identity.

If you are not familiar how to get the domain ownership listed, then you can use the free Internet service from Scamadviser. This service gives you all the necessary information.

Scam Alert 3: A "Holy Grail" - No effort, High benefit

At whatever point any online advertiser or item guarantee that they can profit with practically no work, its unquestionably a scam. There are no such "Holy Grail" in this world that can make your prosperity for you. Achievement must be hungered by your own particular exertion and diligent work.

Scam Alert 4: Keeping you out of the loop

Items that have a deals just feature and don't indicate precisely how you are going to profit is most likely a scam. The greater part of these scams utilize this method to handle your interest. There are likely no substance in its paid substance that can approve its viability.

The most noticeably bad thing you can do is to purchase an item without recognizing what you are getting into. Whenever an item which paints a blushing picture for your future with an one page site and a deals just feature, stay far from it. You can help spare other individuals from the scam by reporting it.

Scam Alert 5: Constant Downsells and Upsells

Downsells

At whatever point you experience a project or item that offers you a unique rebate at whatever point you attempt leave its business page, its likely a scam. In the event that a system or item is so great, why might it so frantically need you to join?

The best clarification could either be encourage upsells once you go along with its program or absence of value data or substance for its clients.

Upsells

Programs that obliges you to purchase many, many products once you turn into a part is doubtlessly annoying.

You will first be acquainted with the entire thought of profiting online and once you join as a participation in its program, you understand you have to purchase another item to take in more about something, and you need purchase yet another item to increase further learning.

There are only no limit to your spending. When you understand that you are being scammed, you would presumably understand that you have spent over a great many dollars on these items.

Scam Alert 6: Fake or Scammy photographs or testimonials

There are numerous projects out there that uses fake testimonials and they will utilize a little worded disclaimer to say that the item testimonials are not 100% authentic. Be careful with those.

Item proprietors who claim they made a fortune online and claim that they will show you how to do it, however uses fake names and photographs to cover their character without a doubt have something to stow away. So please stay far from those items.

Scam Alert 7: High influenced deals

On the off chance that an item or project tries to persuade you that this is a "limited time" offer and you need to act now. Don't! Take as much time as required, it is only a promoting trick.

I'm not saying that all the projects that uses this advertising strategy is a scam. I'm trying to say that you ought to take as much time as required to completely comprehend what you are needing before settling on a choice.

Scam Alert 8: Does not offer support

Product support is the most critical variable to judge the value of the project enrollment. Continuously test the item bolster highlight in the project. It is constantly great to realize that you will be well dealt with once you turn into an individual from the project.

Any honest to goodness system would spend additional push to answer to every one of your inquiries. As a guide, a project merits joining on the off chance that you can get an answer to your inquiries inside of 2 days (the speedier the better).

Scam Alert 9: Impossible to Contact

On the off chance that a system or item don't give any contact data, Run! Flee a long way from the system. High risk that it is a scam.

On the off chance that you would have paid cash to join the participation, and even most exceedingly awful, the enrollment installment is a repeating installment. Bad fortunes for you. Ideally you can scratch off the membership through your credit card organization.

No authentic business will conceal their contact data from you in light of the fact that validity to a real business is vital.

Scam Alert 10: Flaunting pictures or videos of Mansion, rich autos and so forth

Try not to be tricked by all these decent "toys" the "masters" presentation to you. All these are only an approach to tempt your inward eagerness to need the things the "masters" have.

Continuously take enthusiasm for the item itself and not the business pitches or all the garish "toys" the masters display to you.

Most honest to goodness projects will offer free trial for you to test the item. Continuously take as much time as required to test it before settling on a choice.

A Rule of Thumb

Continuously do research before joining an item or system. You can begin your examination by searching the accompanying into Google:

  • product scam
  • product fraud
  • product complaints
  • does product work
  • product review
  • product training
  • product price
  • product cost
  • product legit
  • is product worth the money
  • is product any good

Moral Dilemma...Are all ClickBank products scams?

by Rudolf Faix 9. June 2015 11:44

ClickBankAt the base of every site with unimaginable offers or news, we locate a disclaimer of ClickBank - a surely understood "get rich quick" scammer supporting organization. This demonstrates that ClickBank knows which sort of subsidiary advertisers they have and which items they are retailing. For me is the disclaimer as of now a demonstrate of the scam:

ClickBank is the retailer of products on this site. CLICKBANK® is a registered trademark of Click Sales, Inc., a Delaware corporation located at 917 S. Lusk Street, Suite 200, Boise Idaho, 83706, USA and used by permission. ClickBank's role as retailer does not constitute an endorsement, approval or review of these products or any claim, statement or opinion used in promotion of these products.

As ClickBank is accepting the cash, they have to separation themselves from the advancement. An advancement like this is in US and in Europe enforceable by law. The fines for deceiving advancement is higher than such an organization can ever procure, ClickBank knows this, the items and they realize that a deceptive advancement is utilized to offer this items, For this they are giving such a disclaimer and trust, to the point that it will keep them free from any approvals before the law court case.

A posting found at Digital Point describes the products, which are getting distributed by ClickBank very well:

Moral Dilemma...Are all ClickBank products scams?
Hi Guys...I want to make money like the rest of the world, but I have a real problem scamming people...It seems that every product that I've investigated on ClickBank is a scam. I currently do some sales with a weight loss product that is not a scam, just a lot of common sense, but my question to you guys is if there are some products on ClickBank that actually do what they advertise?
I'm not looking to steal your products, but if you can just give me some general ideas on where to look because I must be missing all the legit products...And I just don't have the money to buy sample products of everything...
Thanks...

Certainly is that he won't get the answer "yes" in the discussion. No scammer will tell without anyone else's input that he is scamming. In such a case ClickBank could close as of now years prior. They have conveyed some of their great scammers for discovering a few contentions against the theme. That improves, Their disclaimer shows as of now that they know, what is getting sold.

The methods of ClickBank in not paying their affiliates are described very good at Is ClickBank a big SCAM? and at Did clickbank scam me? Their methods making money are very well described in the last page of Is ClickBank a big SCAM? There has written the member with the name thuthuatwordpress:

  1. Based on the Clickbank rule, an "Inactive" account (no sales within the last 3 month - counted since the last sales made) would be a deducted 1$ fee for maintain and after 6 month of NO sales, 5$ would be deducted every week and much more until your account comr back to zero, even negative number!
  2. Based on the withdraw policy, you need to have 5 sales and 3 of that MUST be from a mastercard and 2 of that must be from visa/prepaid card. yes, TWO forms of payment, if you had 5 sales and all of that from a mastercard, in this case you will not be paid.

The rule about the dormant accounts got changed already, but it looks more to be a robbery than a serious rule. See it by yourself at https://support.clickbank.com/entries/23761401-Dormant-Accounts:

Accounts with a positive balance but no earnings for an extended period of time are considered dormant. Dormant accounts are subject to a charge of $1 per pay period after 90 days of no earnings, $5 per pay period after 180 days of no earnings, and $50 per pay period after 365 days of no earnings.

The second rule got found at https://support.clickbank.com/entries/23776493-Customer-Distribution-Requirement:

ClickBank will withhold payment of any balance until an account shows a minimum of 5 sales using at least two of the following payment methods:

  • American Express
  • Carte Bleue
  • Diners Club
  • Discover
  • ELV (European Direct Debit)
  • JCB
  • Maestro
  • MasterCard
  • PayPal
  • Visa

This requirement is in place to help prevent Affiliates from abusing the ClickBank Affiliate program by using their accounts for the sole purpose of fraudulently collecting rebates and/or discounts on their own purchases.

Once you have met the Customer Distribution Requirement, your account will begin issuing payments normally, in accordance with our Accounting Policy, beginning on the next payment issuing date.

That has nothing to do with keeping associates far from misapplying the system. They are situated in the U.S. furthermore, realize that almost everyone has a ton of installment cards. So that does not by any stretch of the imagination forestall something. It is just another sort of profiting!

Accurate this rules are as I would see it nothing else then a legitimized SCAM on the grounds that they have composed it into their business rules!!! Somebody, which acknowledge such standards is blameworthy independent from anyone else. A genuine organization won't make such scam rules!!!
