So this one came to me via a Google alert for “make money online”. It caught my interest, so I thought I would have a look at it and in the process write a review of it.
What their website claims
Okay, I’ve spoken before about dramatic headlines, and here’s another one:
Well, straight away this seems like a lot to earn online without a website, especially when you consider the following:
So, let me get this straight. I can earn up to $1,000 per day without a website and without having to sell anything or talk to anyone? So what do I need to do to earn this money?
All I need to do is give out a phone number? Surely it can’t just be that easy? This sounds too good to be true!
Unfortunately, there’s not much more information on the page. In order to find out any more information you have to give them your name and contact details. So I’m going to do that to see what’s behind this door…
A look behind the door:
After filling in my details, I was sent to another website which had this video on it:
What is this all about?
So, from looking at that video, it seems that this system is really just a sneaky way to con other people out of $250. Here’s how it works:
- You pay $99 for the “done for you” system, plug $9.95 for the “phone capture system”.
- You get sent leads to your email address.
- You reply to them and say you will reveal the method to them if they pay you $250.
- They pay you $250.
- You send them to that video, so they can do the same thing to others.
So there’s actually no real product of any value changing hands. All you’re doing is getting people to pay $250 to learn how to get other people to pay $250 to learn how to get other people to pay $250 to get other people to…
…and so it goes on.
This is dangerous!
Because I actually think this could work. I actually think it’s possible to earn a bunch of money really easily using this method. And that’s why this is so wrong, because it’s the wrong way to go about earning money.
I could earn a quick bit of easy money scamming other people out of $250, but I don’t want to get a name for myself as a scammer. I want to keep my reputation as an honest person.
Normally, I would structure my review in such as way as I would thoroughly analyse it based on various positive and negative signs as explained in my article How to Avoid Scams. But this time I don’t need to do that. It’s so obvious what this “250 Program” is all about that I don’t even need to analyse it that deeply.
So now I’m going to jump straight to my final conclusion:
Is 250program.com a scam?
YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!
Have I said YES enough times yet?
100% chance of being a scam!
Is There an Alternative?
Instead of chasing after “shiny objects” like this that promise you will make money quickly and easily but rarely live up to that promise, why don’t you build a great website that earns you money? If you are new to making money online, I can guide you through the process. CLICK HERE to get started
