What really defines a scam?

Last Update: April 23, 2015

There is so much nonsense that goes around today about 'scams', 'pyramid schemes' and whatnot that is simply due to ignorance and misinformation.

Thankfully, I, and most of my fellow WA members, are able to see past that hype and understand that going traditional is not always the best option.

I recently had the opportunity of starting my own business and I am so thankful for how my experience here at Wealthy Affiliate has helped me build my website.

I'm still in the beginning stages, but any and all feedback on my website would be greatly appreciated! Check it out at www.savewithenergy.com.

I've taken a hiatus from WA (not purposely, but just been so busy in other areas of my life) and I have to say that checking in is like coming home. It feels comfortable, welcoming and I know that I have communal support and understanding that I don't get from other influencers in my life.

Thank you all for being your wonderful selves!

Cheers,

Stephanie

Thanks Stephanie, but I wouldn't ignore that Avast warning you got. Avast is one of the best ones and unless they ask you for money I would do what they want. Any asking for money means a red flag, though!

Good for you, Stephanie. Non-traditional can have more risk but also much greater reward! I hope all goes well for you.

And I agree with your take on the "nonsense" that's been tossed around, even here within WA. Individual opinion based on a given personal experience is one thing but to make broad generalizations only shows off misinformed and ignorant opinions.
