Money-Sucking Grabbing Scams

Last Update: August 11, 2019

Have you ever fallen for a scam? I bet most of you will say yes. Some will not want to admit it, and others are ready to talk about their horrible experience.

I bet you think because you fell once, you will never fall for it again.

The sad part is the scammers are so manipulative that some will get caught up in the emotional roller coaster and fall for another money-sucking grabbing scam.

Money-Sucking Grabbing Scams

Before I found WA, I fell for scam after scam trying to get someone to optimize my website. They all promised the world, took my money but did not deliver on their promises.

Even now, after a year at WA, I find some of the scam promotions so enticing. I review at least two products a week. Most of them are scams. I always keep an open mind until I get to the end. Then I determine if it is a scam.

With my open mind, I will still succumb to the manipulation or the shiny object syndrome mindset. So, I wrote down a few tips to keep me on track. These tips will help you steer clear of almost any scam out there.

Tips to Spot A Scam

1. It is all automated, and all you have to do is replicate my system. A done for you system is a common tactic among scammers.

They know you have worked hard and want a break, so they tell you they have done it all for you. All you have to do is set back, copy and paste and watch the money come in.

It doesn’t happen this way! If you want something, you have to work for it. No one else can do it for you.

2. You only have to work 15 minutes a day to make $5000 a day. RIGHT! But so many fall for this one because they don’t want to put in the time.

3. Firm manipulation affecting your emotions. It may be in a sob story about how they lost all of their money to a scam so they won’t do this to you. Or they were so broke they didn’t have a place to live until so and so gave them the secret formula to make millions.

The whole point to this type of manipulation is for you to identify with them. When you think scammer has gone through the same thing you have, you will trust them more.

4. You hear about a promotion from some of your WA friends. You listen to the video, and by the time you reach the end, you don’t know what you will do to earn large sums of money.

So you click on the join button to find out more. You were manipulated with emotional power words to make you forget to check further before you pay.

5. Paid actors. Almost all scams will have fake reviews. These are people who are on Fiverr or other gigs for hire platforms which give a useful summary of how much money they made, but the program pays them to provide the testimony.

If they have to pay someone, this can only mean that no one is making money from their program.

Just screenshot the picture then drag and drop it into google images. It is a facial recognition tool to let you know what other aliases the person has.

6. If the program is giving you the incredible opportunity to pay to promote their product, then it is time to run.

Affiliation is free. You don’t need to pay someone to make a commission from their product. You are giving them free advertising.

Scammers are becoming smarter and more convincing today. I am sure they read all of the reviews and set their next scam up differently to trick you. But all of them have at least one of these tips in it regardless of the new tactics.

Stick With The Proven Method

We all want to grow our business. We all want it to happen now. We all want to make money. And we all think there may be a better way.

There isn’t a faster way. The right way is persistence, consistency, perseverance, and tenacity.

Keep these tips handy and look at them each time you come across a promise to make it happen faster and become smoother. A scam doesn’t have to have all six tips to be a money-sucking, grabbing site.

Were you scammed? Are you in a scam now? Do you feel all alone.

I got into a scam about a month ago from an ad on FB, for a Free One ounce gold coin. Just pay shipping. $13.95. But I did this on purpose. There was a 1% or less chance that it was worth $1276.00 gold value.
I received the coin about 5 days later and took it to a friend who is a jeweler. He tested the coin and as beautiful as it was, finish and all it was FAKE.
So over the next 2 days I wrote a 1200 word Scam Report and published it to my site, pictures and all, before and after. So far I have received well over 500 views of it and have not seen the company advertisements anywhere else.

How do you "drag and drop" their picture into Google? Is there a special software for this? Thanks!
Reply

No special software. Go to google, search google image, click on it, when it comes up you take the photo that you screenshotted from the promotion and move it over to the google image area.

Now I say there is no special software but I use fire shot to screenshot the image. If you want more info about this please PM me and I will get you started.

It is kinda fun.
