How to Avoid Scams
There are so many scams online and it is very important for us to know how to avoid scams.
The easiest way is not to join anything and you will never be scammed. But even though there are so many scams on the internet, there are some very good websites as well. These good websites do offer us good quality content, entertainment and genuine business opportunities, etc.
So how do we tell which one is scam and which one is not. There are some simple guidelines and signals.
Here are some of the signals which will indicate a scam for over 90% of the time:
- They tell you that it is easy to make money. They will have pictures of a nice car, yacht or beautiful women.
- You have to pay a fee to join. They will say that they offered you money back guarantee.
- You can make a lot of money.
- You will definitely be successful.
- You don’t need to work hard.
- If you don’t join NOW, you will lose the chance.
- They will show you how much money they made – with screen shots of their proof. (the proof is fake)
When you see these signals, then it is wise just stay away from it – you have nothing to lose. You will not miss any good opportunity by walking away.
The reason behind why I said that is because making money is not easy. If it is easy, everyone would be rich.
If they have the secret of making money, why would they want to tell you. They don’t even know who you are.
If you do not see these signals then there is a good chance that it is not a scam. If it is a business opportunity that you want to join, you need to check it out first. You can go on the internet to see if there are any review about it. Try to read both positive and negative reviews.
If they offered you a free sign up, then it is okay to sign up and try. If they start asking for your credit card number, then you should back away. Never send any money to anyone if you are not sure. If you are unsure, you can talk to your friends or families before you join.
Why people do whatever it takes to make money?
The main reason behind it is, they don’t know what is the meaning of life.
It is terrible that not many people actually understand what living a life means. Why are they here and what are they suppose to do?
When you don’t know what to do, the simplest solution is to follow someone. When they saw rich people with a big house, a nice car then they just follow them. They want to be rich too. And getting rich is not so easy, you have to work hard and learn many skills. So they take the easier path and they rob the bank, sell drugs or scam someone.
They think they will be happy when they have money. What do you think?
Will you be happy when you have money?
