Don't Fall For The Trick Bag

Lately, my inbox has been inundated with emails from these affiliate marketing "gurus" saying that you can make thousands of (insert currency here) per day. Sounds good, right?
That is, until you get to the next page on whatever website link they send you, or the end of their webinar. Their asking price is a s**tload of money that would take the average person years to scrape up and pay for their income-generating "system".
Let me emphasize again the title of tonight's blog: Don't fall for the trick bag. You'll pay rather severly for it.
Chances are, the "systems" that these people often promote are scams. They lure you in with footage of these mansions, expensive cars, and lush scenery in exotic places. The only reason they display said footage in their introduction videos is because they con people out of some cold, hard cash to showcase their lifestyle by advertising this paywall.
Even some of the landing pages are bogus (excluding Wealthy Affiliate because they are obviously legit); you could run a background check on the person you could potentially do business with, only to find that they're not who they say they are because they use a fake name and a stock photo from the internet. We're in an era where people are so desperate to make a little money because they need to feed their families, pay rent and bills, and put clothes on their back that they don't notice that the phony network marketer is running game on them (and millions of others) by cheating them out of next month's rent money.
Emphasizing the blog image, don't be like Jon Arbuckle and get taken for a ride by these Al Swindler-esque internet marketing "geniuses". You'll only end up behind the proverbial steering wheel of a bucket.
Goodnight from rainy Los Angeles 😊
I have to agree with both you and Frank on this one.
If it sounds too good to be true, it most always is!
I was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley.
We were neighbors and didn't know it, lol.
Have a wonderful week ahead!
Whenever something sounds too good to be true it probably is.
Achieving good things in like requires lots of effort and commitment! 😎
Yes you are right, in fact the fraudsters that do fake profiles and so forth, have been around since the internet exploded with marketing.
It is always good to look for real people reviews in the internet through places like Trustpilot.
Thanks for putting me on to Trustpilot. Now I know who to mark as "Spam" the next time I get another one of those emails 😉
You are welcome!
And I did hear from another member here once that it is better to delete the message put it in trash rather then marking as Spam.

We all need to be vigilant at all times.. if it sounds to good to be true, then it generally is my friend!
These are facts. And some tend to get even more bold with their scams
They do indeed my friend!!
