If you are then there are things you need to be aware of first.
There are a ton of scams out there in Internet land just waiting for someone to hand over their hard earned cash, identifying these is not an easy task, but with a little vigilance and awareness you can avoid the scam sharks out there.
The top Internet fraud scams on the Internet are wide and varied. The number one scam out there are websites that claim you can make thousands online by entering data for various companies.
One such example of a scam like this can be found below... please do not sign up, this is only an example of what you need to look out for. For more legitimate opportunities continue reading.
There will usually be a charge to join one of these sites, anywhere from about $50 upwards and they will usually have testimonials of satisfied customers all explaining how successful they have become if you join.
My advice... don't.
this is simply a Google AdWords scam (you know those ads on the right hand side of the page when you do search?) This will actually cost you money in the long run. Google AdWords can be profitable but you can learn how to do this for free doing a simple search. you do not need to pay for this information.
There is also the "advanced fee scam" this is another top internet fraud scam. This is where a website owner asks you to pay a fee to access more information to whats on offer. The problem with this is that you dont actually know what your money is going to get you. Lets say you DO decide to pay, because you are curious, you then enter the site for more information about the product or service and then realise that it was not what your really wanted at all. You have just been scammed.
Another popular scam are ebooks that promise to make you rich online overnight, there are loads of these around. A lot the ebooks that promise this are in fact rehashes of information that is already available. Some of these can actually be useful, but if you buy one, there is no need to by another one, becasue i gurantee you will just be purchasing the same thing reworded and packaged differently.
Now don't get me wrong there are plenty of legitimate companies who provide you with tools and resources to get you started. The trouble is that you will never know if you have been scammed until it is too late.
Here are some things to look out for.
Reviews. Read unbiased reviews of any program you are thinking about signing up for, do not trust testimonials on the actual website as these are just there to pique your interest, read reviews in forums or on other independent websites.
Look for a money back guarantee, if they are confident that the product or program will work for you then they will not be afraid to offer this.
