I work online and have been a member of many money making schemes over the past decade, and the thing I always work by is that if it seems too good to be true then it probably is. If it wasn't too good to be true, word would have got out and everyone would be doing it.
i was researching money making websites because i oculdn't find a job.
These things are so clever - notice they always charge you something to find out how to make the money.
In the instructions they probably just tell you to do the same thing - charge people so that you can tell them to charge people to tell them to charge people etc.
So you have the big chief who told ten people about this idea - they each pay 10% of the revenue to him, and what their job is is to tell 10 people each about this idea - each of those people pays ten percent to the person above etc. Can't quite explain it
Basically the "scheme" is selling a scheme which is to sell schemes...

i've found lots of these websites. i always, in my head think that they are scams.
but they seem so real, they have real people and i googled one and they had a successful marketing business.
No they don't have a successful marketing business - not unless their name has been used without their knowledge.
There coils within coils, scams within scams. All these things rely on affiliate marketing. Therefore when you Google the name on a "case study", you come across another website - supposedly a review site - set up with the express purpose of getting you to buy the original product so the author of the site gets commission.
The greatest irony is that if you search "is 'x' a scam" you often get results which say "yes, 'x' is a scam - it's too good to be true. Buy 'y' isn't a scam - you can get much more realistic earnings of $3000 per month". It's hilarious.
My advice is that if you find yourself falling for these, you are exactly the kind of sucker they want and you had best stop searching for them in the first place, before you find that you've given out some cash and your card details to an online affiliate marketer.
