Cash Gifting-Avoid at All Costs!

Thursday, March 12th, 2009


Cash Gifting has been around for many many years.  Cash Gifting is a money making opportunity that allows people to THINK they can make an unlimited amount of money. There are no products involved with a cash gifting program, but there are a lot of different companies that offer the opportunity, so be careful. The way the Cash gifting program works is, you can start out at 3 different levels, the $500 level, $1000 level, $2000 level, or you can give the max which is a total of the levels for $3500. After choosing the level you want to start at, and sending your payment to your “sponsor”, you have to qualify in order to start making money yourself. You qualify by recruiting your first person into the program. That person gives their payment to your sponsor, and then anyone else that you bring into the program will pay you. Now, the amount you are paid depends on the level you start at, for example if you start at the $500 level, you can only receive $500 from each person you bring into the program.

 

The reason why you should stay away from cash gifting is the following:

 

  1. You will need to know how to market well to make any money in this industry

 

  1. No proof of making money online!  Most cash gifting companies show you no proof of how the actual program works.

 

  1. Most cash gifting companies will get you started and then completely abandon you; leaving you high and dry out of your initial investment. 

 

Cash gifting is just another online marketing scheme that you should avoid at all costs!

Multi-Level Marketing Opportunities-Beware of Scams

Monday, May 12th, 2008


Good afternoon guys,

So I don’t make anyone mad, let me first start off by saying not all MLM companies are scams. Clearly, there are some high-quality, trustworthy companies out there. Nevertheless, there are so many awful ones. Prior to investing with any MLM or network marketing company, examine, research, and then investigate some more. The only way to truly succeed even with legitimate MLM companies is to have great people and sales skills. Now before you decide to invest in any business opportunity, below are some free sites to find out if companies have had any complaints on them. I suggest searching all these sites before investing.

Phishing-Avoid Being a Victim

Monday, May 12th, 2008

Good morning guys,

Today we are going to talk about phishing, defining exactly what it means, and how to avoid being a victim. Phishing is basically a scam of sending out a false email in order to draw a recipient to a link where they want you to respond with confidential or financial information.  You’ve most likely have gotten plenty of these in your email without you knowing it.  It usually pretends to come from a well known financial institution or a well known company such as ebay.  It will say something like “someone has changed your password and your account will be terminated if you don’t confirm your details, please click on the link and confirm your details.”  If you actually click on the link you will be taken to a fake website where they require you to put in your personal information or banking information which will be used to steal your credit card or social security number to open fake credit cards or to steal your identity.  How do you avoid phishing?  For starters, NEVER respond to an email that comes from your bank.  It doesn’t matter how genuine it looks.  Financial institutions are well aware of phishing and usually don’t send out this type of emails.  When in doubt, pick up the phone and actually call your bank.  Finally, do not give to much personal information on any website.  Make sure the website has a protected padlock logo in the bottom of the browser to let you know this site is safe.
