Beware of The Internet Scams

It really does not matter just what type of Internet business you want to run or already do run, you could certainly find an Internet scam in your chosen field. As a matter of fact there are millions of scams that are known, and many more new ones pop up everyday. This certainly does not mean that you will not find a legitimate Internet business opportunity or affiliate program to prosper in. The Internet is by far the worlds largest library of business interests. You will just need to use caution and research the opportunity that interests you the most.

You should start by doing a search on Google, Yahoo, and or MSN for known scams in your chosen field of interest. Before I began my efforts on-line I did this and it helped me to avoid getting ripped off. Then I would search the Net for affiliate programs, e-commerce with low start-up costs, and work at home jobs. Once I thought I had found the right companies to work with then I began to search the Net for all the information on these companies that I could find. I went to the on-line version of the BBB, as well as contacting the off-line BBB in the home location of each company. I do know that just because these agencies have not received any complaints on a particular company does not mean that they are safe, however if they are a long standing member of the BBB then you can be somewhat safe in concluding that they are reputable and safe to work with.

When I got ready to write this little article today I did a quick search on Google and Yahoo. Just look at the results that came up for just three keyword searches on each of these engines. At Yahoo, search for; known Internet scams, and you’ll get 1,450,000. … Then search; Internet scams, and you’ll get 6,960,000. …. Then search just; Scams, and you’ll get 17,900,000. …Now run the same three searches on Google and you will find the following results; known Internet scams 1,860,000. …. Internet scams 1,410,000. …Scams 2,960,000. … I stopped there and did not search MSN since I am sure you see the point that I am trying to make. Please do not look at this as a reason not to seek the future you want from the Internet, as I said earlier there are many honest and reputable Internet marketers that you can a-line yourself with and over time with some effort and some investment from you, you can indeed find your financial freedom with an Internet business of your own.

The Plug In Profit program that was founded by Stone Evans is indeed one of these highly respected and successful Internet programs. This program is made up of multiple affiliate programs that Stone teaches everyone how to work their way to success. It all starts with a “free” website and progresses from there. There is a low cost investment at start up and some low cost on going fees, however the website and most of the memberships are free. Once you get started as with any business there are other levels of investments that come up, however they are not required, just suggested to aid in your success. You are in total control of what level of investment you wish to make in your business. It is strongly recommended the you set yourself on a budget that you can “afford” and be comfortable with. The speed at which your new business will grow also solely depends on just how committed you are. This is a fact of any business whether on-line or off-line. It’s not a get rich quick business, but one that you will need to work at and nurture along until over time you find small successes then, those successes will grow to much larger ones. More investment of money does not necessarily mean more success, you and your investment of time and effort will be the biggest factor in your eventual success. This program is very rich in training and on going support as well as continued improvements from Stone himself. Just click onto the link in the authors box below and examine this wonderful program.

With the statistics showing that 95% of the people looking to make money on-line finding failure and only 5% finding success it is important to understand why this is. Well what you see in this article plays a very big part in these numbers. People jump into programs that sound to good to be true and they are and money is lost. After doing this a number of times a lot of people give up and label the Internet as “nothing” but a big rip-off. The way that I look at it is that if people are to lazy to do the research first then they are more apt to get taken and loose money. Also if they are jumping at programs that boast about you, “not needing to do anything” and you will make thousands of dollars everyday, then they more than likely do not want to “work” to earn their financial freedom either. It really does not matter what business you own or are employed by, if you do not put in the “effort” and “work” you are not going to get anything in return either. If you are told invest $2000 once and you will make $1000 per day for ever, and you do nothing and I will do all the “work”. Does that even sound remotely like it makes sense? You can be sure if it does not make sense then it’s not true and you are about to be taken for all the money you are willing to part with. Just remember all legitimate businesses require some monetary investment, your time, and your work. The return is always commensurate with the investment, or you get back only what you put in, put nothing in then get nothing back.

The Internet is still growing with leaps and bounds and there is still many legitimate ways to become wealthy “working” on-line, so keep looking and be patient and cautious and you will find what you are looking for. It’s out there so go for it.
