A popular one right now? One web site is designed to look like a newspaper front page, with the logos of real newspapers and TV networks. The person featured has a rags to riches story…college dropout now making $10,000 a month working from home.
All you have to do is order a twitter cash starter kit for $1.95, but that’s how they get your credit card info and then later charge you a monthly fee of $47.
But wait, there’s more. By signing up for the program you get to create your own fake newspaper site to recruit others. For each new victim, you get $47 bucks…a pyramid scheme.
“First thing you should ask yourself is how someone could make ten thousand dollars a month from home. Usually, it is impossible. It cannot be done unless it is a scam,” said John Hinkle, Internet Fraud Attorney.
A scam that’s hard to fight, because these sites that promise fast cash for little work can disappear in just a few days or weeks.
