So you are cruising around the internet when you notice a website that promises to make you three thousand dollars tomorrow if you just send them a personal check for ten bucks. Are you suspicious of this site and the person running it? You should be! Now I am not saying everyone making this claim is a scammer, but come on what the odds that you will make three thousands dollars tomorrow just for sitting on your back.
So, with that said their are three things you must absolutely look out for when it comes to easy money making scams. If you look out for these signs you should be able to avoid easy money making scams.
1. If a website requests you to send a wire transfer or personal check you should be skeptical. Why is that? because their are much safer ways to pay someone online! Anyone who is running a legit business will probably have a paypal feature on their website. Giving out bank account information by writing a personal check to a stranger is just asking to get scammed.
2. Do not fall for the get rich quick schemes. You should only listen to offers that sound reasonable. In other words use common since to realize when a business opportunity is throwing up red flags. If someone claims you can make $ 10,000 tomorrow that is very unrealistic and simply will not happen. on the other hand if someone tells you that you could probably make ten grand in a month or two that is quite reasonable.
3. Avoid sites that offer to pay you for doing surveys. Now I do not want to say that all of them are scams, however I have tried three or four different sites and none of them delivered what they promised. They just give you points instead of cash and honestly who really cares about that?
