First, no, you don't need to use all your credits in one article. This might be a technical issue as someone mentioned and I do encourage you to solve the issue by asking Support.

I´m with drjec, ask Support.

I have never seen this happen when I have requested comments. I think you should write to support.

Can this be a technical issue?

He should ask Site Support or Kyle.

WA Affiliate Program

What was your experience with make-money-online scams before discovering Wealthy Affiliate? Did you experience "Shiny Object Syndrome"?

Oh, I tried some before, and forgot names. Hopefully no more.

Yes, most of my experience was with small make-money programs that mostly cost me time.

Luckily I didn't get scammed before because I'm a very suspicious person...found out about WA, checked it out and went premium!

Good for you!

I found some of them to be successful- That is they scammed me out of some money by selling me the dream

Yes, selling the dream.

I guess the old saying " If it looks to good to be true.It usually is".seems to have worked for me!

You are so right, but some of us just want to believe the hype.

I can admit that I bought into a few scams just hoping I would roll a seven or eleven each try and come out with big money as if I was shooting craps lol. I began to notice how every time I paid I was just redirected to another site asking to pay a little more money. I realized that it was just certain affiliates scamming you to pay, then direct you right to the bigger scam that wants you to buy into real hyped up dreams. I knew nothing about on-line marketing, but I did get an idea of what it was about through the scams. Unfortunately, none of them actually showed me exactly what to do except WA. I started doing more research on on-line marketing and affiliate marketing and I found a video on youtube from Ian Pribyl who introduced me to WA. The first thing that attracted me to the site was the option for a 7-day trial in which I learned more about on-line marketing in 4 days than in the 2 months of buying into scam after scam!

That's very similar to my experience. But, you know, the bad guys just taught to appreciate WA all the more.

I got few lessons, which ended happily. If not fake coaches, I would never find WA.

Being reasonably versed in scams I have only partially fallen for one once. I did a scam search and found nothing on the entity. But I did put a $$ limit on what I spent. So in I went and the constantly the next step had a "pay only" theme. So I canned that immediately. Then out of interest I did another scam search and found one by Nathaniell. He suggested WA, and with the first 10 lessons free the rest is history.

Bless Nathaniell. He introduced me to WA too!

Most of us have fallen for more Shiny Objects than we would like to admit. But since discovering WA, they are not nearly so appealing!

I agree. They don't tempt me any longer.

I'll be posting an article on this subject later today or tomorrow. Watch for it.

Would love to see your article.
I am new here, but working online for many years. Have seen every type of fraudulent site imaginable (and fell for too many). But now I am building a similar site - WhyGetScammed.com. (Nothing to see for a few more days, but looking for all sorts of related material.
Thanks,
James

Here it is, I just posted it:

Great! I look forward to it.

Good read, Werner. :-)

By the way, just for fun: One of the major players in this game is a guy named Kyle. He hasn't been to a meeting in Las Vegas in years, because he's always tied up in California. At San Quentin prison.

No relation to our Kyle, clearly. Seeing as how ours is in Canada! :-D

I used to...but I guess now the satisfaction of buying other products is taken care of since I do reviews for my site. I'm constantly reminded that shiny objects are all packaging, and rarely deliver anything of value.

Me too, Wealthy Affiliate cured me of the Shiny Object Syndrome. Now, I take delicious pleasure in opting out of the mailing lists from self-proclaimed gurus.
