Before we start, I want to make it clear that this article is about scammers that affect people who make money online by selling digital products, like e-books, software, etc. and have a refund policy, because we have a rather long way until end and, if you are selling physical product or you money online through affiliate programs that don't involve a refund policy it's probably just a waste of time.
In this article, I'll talk about "refund policy scammers". Lately, more and more people started to talk about them on forums and came out with different solutions, which we will discuss in second part of article, "Make Money Online - Defend Against The Latest Scam".
"Refund policy" scammers, as I stated in beginning, affect people that make money online by selling digital products (software, e-books for eg.). Now, you're probably wondering what's their "modus operandi". Well, it's very simple. They just find websites that sell digital products and have a 100% money back guarantee, buy product and then they tell you they want a refund because of crappy reasons, sometimes even impossible ones (they ask for a refund only minutes after they bought product), but in same time they keep products.
More and more people who make money online with this kind of websites are complaining about these incredibly immoral scammers. You will find posts like: "I received this e-mail just one minute after they bought my e-book: "I am really disappointed about your e-book, I read it and it doesn't say anything new for me. Please give me a refund." And my e-book contains 80+ pages", "I am sorry but your script doesn't show me any results. Please give me a refund." I received this e-mail just one day after he bought and my script usually show results after about 30 days "

First, let's do a little recap'. As I stated in first part of article, "Make Money Online - The Latest Scam Disclosed", "refund policy scammers" affect websites that make money online by selling digital products by buying product and asking for refunds, while keeping product.
Now I will give you some solutions you can choose from. But, unfortunately, all of them have some bad consequences, aside good ones. The best piece of advice anyone that makes money online can give you is testing.
First, obvious solution: get rid of refund policy. This way you won't have problems with these scammers anymore and you can continue to make money online without them bothering you. The bad thing is that this solution might reduce your conversion rate, but like I said before, test. You might be surprised of results and see that conversion rate stays almost, if not same as you had before. This has happened to others.
Next, I will give you some tips to increase your conversion rate if you decide to go with no-refund policy and thus help your make money online business.
One thing you can do to help increase conversion rate, sometimes even more than it was before you got rid of refund policy, is to place a text just before order form telling people that you don't have a refund policy because of these scammers and you don't want your product to end up on their hands. This actually worked out great for others and they made had more sales than before.
