About Internet Scams

Written by Claude Violette

Are you tired of all those scams?

Are you tired of having your mail box filled every day with all those scams and pyramid schemes? I certainly am. Do you really believe that by signing up with any of those programs you will make $7,000 $10,000 or even a million dollars inrepparttar next two weeks as some of those programs claim? Come on! get real! The only people that make money with those pyramids arerepparttar 127504 ones that start them orrepparttar 127505 very few atrepparttar 127506 top. The rest all loose their hard earned money and waste their valuable time trying to promote those programs and they are indeed very lucky if they manage to break even. Withrepparttar 127507 speed with which things move onrepparttar 127508 internet, ifrepparttar 127509 program is more that a few days old you are out of luck. Some are called Downline clubs or some such name. In those you sign-up and at some later date you will be asked to join one or more of their affiliates. In order to qualify for commissions, you have to buy a certain quantity of products. In order to stay qualified, this will escalate, until you end up buying products that you dont need, or much more than you can possibly use.

Others are called gifting clubs or something like it. This is just another pyramid variation and just as illegal. Recently I was even offered unlimited loans that you never have to pay. Good grief! I stopped believing in Santa Claus a long time ago. How about you?

Those are outright pyramids and are probably illegal in most countries. (BEWARE!) There many variations on those two but it all comes out torepparttar 127510 same thing inrepparttar 127511 end.

In order to make real money onrepparttar 127512 net you have to sell REAL products, WORK at it and stay away from all those scams.

I just picked up in my mail box something called: "The Quick Cash Secret Banking System" which promises that: “Using this powerful cash system to generate $1,500, $2,500 and even $3,000/week! We will show you how to build this $5000 into a cash flow of $50,000 within A few months. In addition, we reveal to you, a powerful, jealously-guarded, little known New York multi-millionaires' fast cash creation strategy that will enable you to raise "$100,000 in 24hrs", instantly, without any investment or hard work” (Oh really!)

For this he wants $100.00. You see, this is a Secret System so you can’t possibly know ahead of time what you will be getting for your $100.00. Also I have to ask myself. If this system is so profitable why does he need to sell it onrepparttar 127513 net at $100.00 a throw. In spite of allrepparttar 127514 protest torepparttar 127515 contrary this is probably quite illegal. This is a variation of what is called a Ponzi Scheme, which is quite illegal.

Are you scaring away potential customers?

Sincerepparttar launch of showtheplanet.com we have been regularly inundated by sales pitches from Internet and technology firms from all overrepparttar 127503 globe. We would think it a positive thing - sincerepparttar 127504 world is obviously finding us - except that its quite apparent from most ofrepparttar 127505 messages we've received thatrepparttar 127506 person onrepparttar 127507 other end ofrepparttar 127508 phone (or fax, or e-mail) has no idea what we're about. Even worse, most of these Internet companies seem have no idea how to do business onrepparttar 127509 Internet. Here are some actual examples of contact from sales people to our office withinrepparttar 127510 last month: <> Salesperson from an internet company calls and leaves a message followed by 10 minutes of office background noise and conversations. Apparently this person hadn't hung uprepparttar 127511 phone. This happened two days in a row fromrepparttar 127512 same person. <> Salesperson calls and introduces their product. This product obviously has nothing in common with what we do. We ask: "Have you been to our site?" They respond: "Uh...no, but...." <> Salesperson from an Internet company calls. We are interested and ask about pricing. The response: "Uhh...Actually, this is my first day. Can I get my manager to call you about that?" <> Salesperson from an Internet company calls. We ask that information be e-mailed to us. They courier a five pound information package to our officerepparttar 127513 next day. It contains volumes of information about why they're such a wonderful (public) company, but no detailed information on prices or product. <> Similarly, we request pricing information via e-mail from an Internet company. They respond with their own five pound courier package. You guessed it. No
