So Sad About the Scams
I was reading my community's intranet today, and once again there was a post trying to entice people into a "get rich quick" multi level scam. The person who posted it claims to be making a six figure income, yet just a couple of weeks ago she posted asking where to find the most deeply discounted theme park tickets. Doesn't sound like someone pulling down big bucks to me.
Our intranet is rife with MLMs touting everything from miracle diet pills to health potions to legal servces to goodness only knows what else. It saddens me that so many people keep falling for the same scam over and over again, albeit with a different product or service at the core.
That's why I'm so happy to be here at Wealthy Affiliate. This is reality, not "get rich quick." If those same people joined up over here and put the same amount of time and money into following the WA plan to grow an online business, they'd be so much better offer.
I guess selling a miracle diet pill or anti-aging lotion sounds a lot more "sexy" than building your own website and doing actual work, but the proof is in the end result. The same people in my community seems to be onto a new MLM every few months, so it's pretty obvious the old ones are failing. Meanwhile, I'm here for the long term, and I'm already making money. It's a solid business, not a flavor of the week, and I'm glad to be here.
