How to make money from home : Spot the scams first
There are numerous ways of earning money online from home. But, for every good method or website, there are scams. Online scams are so prevalent that many people reject the idea of earning from the internet after a few tries. But you can protect yourself from such scams if you can spot them. If you are new to the internet its difficult to recognize a online scam. However, after reading this article, you will be able to spot those online scams and avoid them in order to earn successfully from the internet.
Believe me, the internet is full of scammers in all fields & areas and it is very easy to fall prey to their lucrative scams. Internet Frauds are happening everywhere. The offer made by these websites is so lucrative that most of the newbies cannot stop themselves from falling for it.
Most often, the scammers try to find victims from classified sites like Craigslist.com. Hence, whenever you sign in to any such website, make sure that you join them after a brief analysis about the classifieds.
There are a few characteristics of Scams which help us make few techniques to spot them.
Here are few of them:
1) They will offer you an Internet Business without even a product
These websites will offer you a system that will make you rich in no time (according to them) but when you purchase the product, what you get is something not even worth pennies. Remember that any website that has a good system for earning money will offer you some training, some online support and even, Money Back Guarantee.
2) It is too good to be true
If you find yourself saying this, believe me, it is not true. I have seen some websites that offer you $100 and more just to sign up (But you have to reach at least 5 times that amount in order to be able to withdraw. That is a limit no one reaches). Any website that offers such offers can simply not sustain itself due to the TREMENDOUS expenditure. So, if it is too good to be true, it is not true.
3) They tell you that you neither need a website, nor a list to get rich.
Most people who are new to internet easily fall for this. But, the ones who are experienced enough and who have had some success in making money online will ridicule this line. They know that a website or a list are very important to make a money- making business on the internet and it is impossible to earn without a website or a list.
4) They do not have any person to contact.
Generally, if a website is offering you a system that can make you rich, it must at least have a person in charge or some customer service person available on chat. Make sure that it is not just a robot, but a real person. You can easily do this by asking them a few question only humans can answer. For ex., “Are you a real human?” works for most of the bots. If possible, call them before making a purchase.
Keep these in mind and you will avoid most of the scams.
