Make $5,300.04 the hard way
I’ve recently seen a slew of ads (mostly pop-up ads) that say you can make up to $5,000 a month submitting to Google. The ad links to a story about a guy who make $5000 per month just by submitting links to Google, his story sounds quite genuine with positive comments, thanks, payment proofs, pictures…but wait!
Get paid $5 to $30 for every website link that you post on Google. No one needs to buy anything from you or Google in order to get paid. Weekly paychecks are sent & you can work from your home computer or anywhere with internet access.
Thank you for visiting my site. My name is [insert fake name] & I grew up in the [your local town, state] area. This is my story on how filling out one simple online form changed my life. Basically, when I started, I was making around $3,500 to $5,000 a month from Google. Not a ton of money. But, very solid and good. I was able to replace my previous job?s income, working less than 10 hours a week on my computer at home.
They then go on to promise huge sums of income with little to no work on your part, simply by submitting a site to Google. What you are really doing is creating a fake website that drives traffic to their site. All this for only $1.97 s/h (plus $47 month – it’s in the fine print). Ultimately, these sites send you to businesses under the names EZNetIncome, Easy Google Cash, etc.
But don’t take my word for it, search for yourself. Here’s some key terms to search for:
“I lost my job as a boring account rep for a manufacturing company a few months back”
“filling out one simple online form changed my life”
Here’s a link to someone who has collected these bogus ads (he’s not bogus, just the ads are).
Please don’t sign up for these “services”, they really are scams and they plan to take your money. Why do you think they obscure their names on the checks but tell you who they are? If it sounds fishy, search for the site’s name plus the word scam and see what shows up. Oh, and leave a comment with any other names you find.
UPDATE: Google finally takes a stand and files suit against theses scammers.
