Don't Be a Victim of Network-Marketing Scams!


Visitors: 363

Have you ever heard the phrase, “Make thousands of dollars working from home”? Sure you have! I hear these sales pitches all the time! I mean, wouldn’t it be nice to make great money quickly, easily and working right from home in your pajamas? Of course! I for one would love to have money flowing into my bank account working only a few hours a week from home, so I’d have more time to spend with family and do the thing I’ve always wanted.

We’ve all seen the “to good to be true” claims people make about how they get rich on the internet or through a Network-Marketing company working from home, AND how they can show you how to do the same thing. I can tell you from my own personal research that 99% of these people are complete “Network-Marketing Frauds. " Sure, you may have been tempted or even been scammed by one of these yourself, selling you their latest “Network-Marketing” pitch. I’ve bought so many of these programs and joined so many of these companies that I can’t even believe how much money went to waste.

I’ve been the one that buys the membership for $49.99 and is then forced to buy the “Value Pack” for another $500 or $1000!!! I’ve wasted my money and time in the process.

I don’t know why, but even to this day I can’t help but think that there is good in all people, but I was “sold” by these marketing scams time after time, even after being scammed by another. Finally, I realized that instead of making money I am in fact loosing, I got FED UP. I decided to get to the bottom of these “Network Marketing” lies, and find out if there really were any LEGITIMATE programs for making good, steady money and benefiting from a product at the same time.

I decided to directly contact the administrator of every Network-Marketing website I could find. Posing as a potential customer an Network-Marketing guru, I convinced the owners that I was seriously interested in becoming a member of their website or business. That way, once they realized how much impact I could have on their company, the dollar signs started rolling in their heads. Now they would give me a limited time free access to their member’s area to review everything I needed to know and the results of everyone that had tried their business.

Well, in my review I was thoroughly disgusted with 99% of what I found. Many of the owners actually bragged about how many people bought their useless programs. They told me that I would be great at selling their plans and making a fortune at the risk of other people. Over and over I found:

  • links leading to more products that I had to buy to stay “qualified” or to earn money.
  • outdated information
  • non-working links
  • no refunds offered (they made it sound like you could get a refund, but you had to jump through leaps and bounds to get it)
  • no help section
  • no real email support
  • no customer service

    I quickly realized that these “Network-Marketing” or “Home-Based Business” programs were completely useless and the owners were laughing all the way to the bank. Surprisingly enough while going through all of these useless websites, I was able to find a couple of company owners that actually ran legitimate programs.

    The owners are people like you and me that established a great product with a consumer-friendly marketing plan to make extra money working from home in their spare time and on their computers. Their membership areas were very impressive, with a substantial amount of quality information on each product, what the business entailed, and how to make $300 – over $5000 a month by doing very little work.

    The reason they didn’t have to work hard at it was because the product they were selling was so great that it would sell itself! I even got a chance to have a little chat with some of their customers in a few online forums, and they confirmed that they were making extra money just by using and telling others about the products. Check them out your self and you will see what I am talking about.

    You can visit the one site I have found to be legit listed below. They do charge a minimal fee to join their program, which any legitimate company would that actually have people on staff who are dedicated to helping you get started. What an awesome group of people!

    Anyway, if you are interested in the program below, I would have to advise you to join quickly, because the owners have informed me as I was joining that they are getting so many new members by word of mouth referrals that they will be closing off membership completely in the next 2 days until it slows down. (Psst, you didn’t hear that from me!) Since they are dedicated to providing excellent service to each person and don’t have enough staff to accommodate many more people they must close off membership quickly. I have to say I was thoroughly disgusted with most of what I found in all of these other so-called “Home-Based Business” or “Network-Marketing” programs, and I strongly advise that you do not take your chances joining any programs other than the one I have researched listed below!

    Oh, and let me tell you they surpass the competition in not only price, but value as well. Whatever your decision may be I wish you all the happiness and joy to you and your family.

    The following is the program I do recommend:

    (You can watch the informational video on the landing page with the CEO and his wife, and tour of the company and realize how legit it really is. What an awesome company!)
