I’ts no surprise as many Americans look to retirement they are also looking for ways to make an income to supplement that retirement. But, are the programs out there claiming to help people really doing that or just trying to separate individuals from their hard earned money? Chances are they are looking to empty your wallet, bank account and anything of value from you. It really is pretty disgusting. And in this blog I’ll be looking at some popular programs that look to be promising but are for the most part complete scams! To start out, let’s take a look at the ever growing in popularity rev share industry.

Don’t Get Scammed!

Rev Shares Are Scams

Rev Shares are fast becoming a way people can make a quick buck by duping people to invest a certain amount of cash flow into the program by purchasing ad packs or ad shares. They claim that by purchasing ad packs you are buying into advertisement packages which is what makes the rev share legit. But, how legit are the adpacks you are buying? After checking these things out I found that the advertisements are basically useless because the only one seeing your ad are the people who are in the ad share program. Sounds shady huh? Well, it is and considering a vast majority of these programs pop up from countries outside of the United States, chances are there is something not right about them. Recently rev share companies like HQ Rev Share, Ultimate Rev Share have fallen into the scam mode when the owner feints an illness or death in the family and takes off with the pool of money collected from unsuspecting victims. It really is bad because these things close down with no notice and no hint of failing. So, if you are looking at joining one of these I would suggest really rethinking because you’re bound to waste a lot of time and money. Additionally, Paypal has deemed these things SCAMS and have shut down all interactions with the companies…(If You Want To Call Them One)

Home Success Programs Are Scams

Would You Trust This Guy?

Another scheme, scam is the Home Success Scam. Home success scams work like this. You pay a small fee to join and they are usually schemes that praise Google and the ability to earn up to 1000.00 per week. The scam usually claims you can “Make Money With Google” or “Get Paid Doing Nothing”. Amazingly a lot of people have fallen prey to these scams and yet people still join on a daily basis. Once the credit card number is given, the small fee is deducted but after a week to a month, your credit card will be charged again as a recurring debit. If you call to cancel, you will more than likely be reach a number that’s been discontinued or no answer at all. Cancelling with these programs can be done however by contacting your bank or the issuing card company. If paying by Paypal simply click the box that stops recurring payments to the company or program. If you need help call Paypal or go online to www.Paypal.com.

Countries Where Scams Pop Up

Unfortunately, we live in a world where others prey on the vulnerability of others. And, while the United States warns people to stay away from scams online, there are constantly people who fall victim. Additionally, many of these scams pop up from countries like the U.K., Africa, Singapore and Malaysia to name a few. Some of the scammers create enticing websites created by people who speak fluent English and have extensive web building experience. So, if it looks to good to be true or if the program wants any money or debit card upfront, steer clear! You should never for any reason give you credit or debit card number to any program or company offering you work. You will be SCAMMED!

Ok, so my rant has ended for this blog on what I found to be scams online. But, don’t feel bad if you have been duped into joining a program that has turned out to be bogus. It doesn’t mean you’re an idiot. In fact many people have been hustled online but it doesn’t have to continue. Just be aware that these things out there are you will be much better off. I myself have tried a few and yes I hit a brick wall. But, I did finally find a program that works but only if you work it correctly. And that means you have to work. If you like to blog and want to earn at it I would suggest checking it out. In fact, the blog you are reading right now is a result of my work with this company. But, I won’t try and push you into something without letting you know you can try it out for free. It’s a learning university that teaches you how to write and market. While you do have to put in your due diligence I will say that it’s worth trying out for free. Check it out below.

    I reckon most people who are looking for ways to make money online are at one point or another scammed out of some of their hard earned cash. I also bought into a couple of dubious programs before I started blogging, and some of them very convincing. Luckily didn’t lose too much.

    Hi There
    Did not know that there was such a thing as Rev Shares, thanks for educating me on this one.Will be watching out for these guys.

    Regarding the home success schemes, I personally believe that there is no such thing as a ‘free lunch” so you will NOT get paid for doing nothing…

    Your suggestion on blogging for a living sounds like something that I would very much be interested in.I love the fact that you mentioned it will take some hard work.

    Thanks for the honesty.Will be checking it out.


    • David Donahue says:

      Hey Roopesh, thanks for the comment. Yes, Rev Shares are definitely on the scam list. Glad I could give you a heads up on those fly by night programs.

  3. Jenny says:

    Well rev shares sounds like a complete waste of time! especially if the only people looking at the ads are the ones who have bought into the program!
    Really enjoyed reading your site on the scams. I love reading all about them and how they work and think it is a pity that people believe that you can earn loads of money and not having to do much work for it. If only!
    I think wealthy affiliate is definitely the best online program for people who want to earn a living from home
    thanks for the information

    • David Donahue says:

      Thanks so much for the comment! Rev shares are pretty much a waste of time but you would be surprised how many invest thousands of dollars and find little success. Glad I could give you some useful info. Best to you!

    Hi David,

    A really helpful and detailed post – while I consider myself an online marketer with some experience, I still can’t stop being amazed by how effectively those scam programs continue to flourish and drain people of their hard-earned money. I always respect those who write about this stuff and help newbies avoid many traps.

    • David Donahue says:

      Thanks for the comment! It is pretty sad especially because some of the creators of the scams are really bright. They just choose to use their skills to scam others. Glad this was helpful to you!

  5. MelP42 says:

    It’s always interesting to read about scams because it’s hard to believe how many dishonest people there actually are out there. I hadn’t heard of the companies you have mentioned in your post before and it’s always good to know which ones to steer clear of. It was a good read.

    • David Donahue says:

      Thanks for your nice comment here. It is sad there are so many online pirates as I like to call them. Glad this was useful to you!

  6. Andrew says:

    There are just so many scams on the internet today, it’s amazing how the creators of the systems keep on getting away with it! I think it’s really time that something changed online, there should be a way to police scams like this.

    I run my own website and have come across countless people who have fallen pray to scams like you mention here. For many of us the scams seem really obvious but for those who are desperate and willing to try anything to make money, the scams are all too tempting!

    • David Donahue says:

      True. There are so many hustles out there its hard to tell whats real anymore in the work force. Lousy jobs, online scams, credit card fraud. It says something about our society unfortunately.

  7. Holly says:

    Thanks for the heads up – I am going to have a look into this WA for sure. Have you been scammed by the companies you mention? Is WA the only company you can recommend or are there any others you are aware of? Thanks for the help as this is something I would really like to start doing. Are you working full time from home now as a result of your website?

    • David Donahue says:

      I do work from home doing this and building my own website. As far as getting scammed, I did check out the rev shares. Those are pretty scammy but not sure if they are illegal. Kind of like the first to sign up are the ones who make money. Wealthy Affiliate gives you all the tools and training so its a better choice no doubt. I cant really think of any others I would recommend really. Thanks for the comment Holly!

    If it sounds too good to be true then it probably is sums it up nicely. It’s no wonder that there’s been a huge influx of scams since people in record numbers are setting up blogs and often with not much prior internet experience. I’ve never heard of rev shares before but it sounds fishy to me and obviously anything which requires credit card info upfront is highly risky!

    • David Donahue says:

      True. That’s why it’s important to stay the course on your blog and see it as a long term venture. I tend to not trust new blog websites or programs unless they are at least a couple years old. Thanks for the comment!
