The reason why internet money making scams are so successful at conning people is this: the very things you need to watch out for are the very things that are designed to pull you in. And the sad thing is, they do pull many people in.

When you go to one of these sales pages, you will probably be greeted by some kind of dramatic headline which grabs your attention and gets you excited. Dramatic headlines like this:
This one was on the Google Sniper sales page. Notice how it says there are only a few spots remaining, despite the fact that Google Sniper has been around for years. Also, note the ludicrously high amount he says he’s making from his methods. That works out at almost a million dollars a year. If he’s that rich from his own system, he has no need to sell it to other people. Just keep doing your own system, George!
As it turns out, how he REALLY earns all that money is from conning people into buying his Google Sniper system, which doesn’t actually help you earn as much money as he does from scamming gullible people.
However, one of the worst offenders actually comes from the Millionaire Society:
Okay, so that’s not as much as with Google Sniper. But wait, it gets better worse (here are some screenshots from the sales video):
$3,000 per hour? I’ll do the math for you and tell you that this works out at over 6-million dollars per year! That’s insane!
The Millionaire Society people also run a site called Profit Bank, which claims:
Stay away from anything that claims you can get rich from automated software like this. As I’ve said before, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. They are playing into your own fantasies of effortless riches.
Meanwhile, Patric Chan from CB Passive Income wants you to copy his entire business:
Be wary of anyone who claims you can copy exactly what they’ve done. It’s never that easy. You can’t create a successful internet business just by copying someone else’s. Again, they are playing right into your desire to be successful whilst being lazy. NEWS FLASH: success and laziness are mutually exclusive.
Then there is Real Translator Jobs, whose dramatic headlines don’t really make any sense, and actually contradict each other:
I’m assuming you’re intelligent enough to spot the inconsistencies there, but I’ll spell them out anyway just in case:
- Companies urgently need you, yet there are limited positions, even though over 400 companies are hiring right now.
- You can get paid up to $100 to translate a document, even if you have no experience and your English isn’t great.
You see. this is what you’re up against if you are trying to make money online. Almost every step of the way there is someone waiting to pounce, to take advantage of your secret desire to get rich without you having to put the work in.
I’m sorry, but if you genuinely want to earn money online, there aren’t really any shortcuts. There are ways of working smarter, and there are tricks and tips along the way; but ultimately, if you really want it, you are going to have to put some work in, and it will take time.
