Scam! Scam! Scam! It’s a Scam!! He’s a scammer!!
It is quite understandable to not know what a lot of programs are doing out there. There are a bunch of them to try to keep up with. Not hundreds, but thousands of them. To try and understand many of them is truly a waste of time if you are a goal-oriented person.. unless to do JUST THAT happens to be your goal, which I highly doubt…
Not knowing how a specific program or opportunity works, though, isn’t a good reason to put it down. Most people tend to criticize that which they don’t understand. I know, that is a quote from somebody, somewhere.
The definition of a scam, by my own recollection, is when there is intent to rip people off.. like when you get an e-mail from somebody in Nigeria telling you that you only need to pay for processing fees so that they can wire you the millions of dollars that you are now entitled to.
A scam is designed to take money out of people’s pockets – not intending to give them anything in return… and then to disappear so that you can maybe do it all over again.
Here in the online marketing world the term “scam” has come to be defined as something a tiny bit different. Anytime a person puts money into a program and they don’t get their money out, the business automatically becomes a “scam”.
What about you? Have you ever been scammed? I mean, there ARE a lot of scammers out there in the world… and most scamming is now done on the internet since that is the easiest way to do it.
Don’t believe everything you see or hear online when people refer to a program as a scam. Do your own due diligence, for sure. Some of the best ideas that made people worth millions were at one time probably thought to be a scam.
Out there in the “real world” people use the word “pyramid scheme” in such a way that it automatically sounds bad. Well, I’m here to tell you that there is absolutely nothing wrong with a scheme that is shaped like a pyramid.
Your job is probably a pyramid scheme. If you don’t think that it is, tell your boss that you want trade positions or paychecks for a month. You have a far better chance of getting your dreams accomplished if you are in a situation where you can build for yourself, without any limitations.
Of course – to simply join an mlm or network marketing company it isn’t easy to make money. You need to stick around and learn how others are able to rise above all of the “noise” and separate themselves from the masses.
