Why I Love Get Rich Quick Schemes

Mar 14, 2008
Everyone is so focused on money that their common sense is blinded by the ka-chings of the dollar signs going off in their heads. Some get rich schemes are so insultingly stupid that you couldnít think anyone would fall for it. However, there are a few gullible people out there that still go for it.

The net is a mixture of honest and dishonest people, if youíre not careful, you might end up with less than what you started. So before investing all of your savings on get rich quick schemes, be sure that youíre able to differentiate a legitimate scheme from a money vacuum.

The good thing, or should I say bad thing, about get rich quick scams is there is a chance that out of the schemes out there, there is one that is actually legitimate. And this is not unusual; it is the stories of these legitimate schemes that keep the scammers in business.

There is a story about a private investigator that actually went out and asked the owners of these scam machines about their business. He pretended he wanted to buy the company and see the actual profits. What he found out was most appalling, about 99% of the companies he asked ran scams. No profit for the latecomers, and more profit for the owner.

So what happened to the last 1%? Well that 1% was an actual legitimate company, with success stories and equal opportunities for all members. Although the profits arenít what most Get rich quick schemes promise, at least you know youíll be making profits in the long run.

So how do you find these diamonds in the rough? Well first youíve got to know the difference between scam and scheme, not just the spelling.

First of all you should know, that if its too good to be true, then it probably is. May Multi level marketing schemes are fronts for pyramiding scams and Ponzi Scams. Basically, the company fronts an overly expensive product that they convince you to sell for a minimal profit, and then they convince you to recruit other people to sell the products. And this is how these scams work, they find all the gullible people out there and convince them that they can get rich easily.

Before you entertain the idea of a get rich scheme, first you must know that getting rich overnight is almost impossible, unless you win the Lottery, but even that requires a lot of luck but if youíre sure you want to find that diamond n the rough and be a lucky winner then follow these few tips.

Nothing should be hidden

Most of the time, get rich scams offer you a lot of business babble that you canít understand. They choose to be vague and change the topic. Most of the time, when you ask if itís a scam, they tell you that its just psychobabble that lazy people say instead of explaining to you how their program isnít a scam.

Achievable goals

Some scams give you ludicrous profit predictions. It is these predictions that blind most investors and the gullible folk. Its possible to get profit off the internet, but these should be achievable. Which would you rather believe, a promise of a $200 weekly payoff on a part time basis or a million dollar payoff in just 30 days? Which one is more believable? Its simple matter of one plus one equals two, it can never equal to 10.

Legit companies will give you the training, to sell their products, and most of these companies rely on product sales rather than recruitment.

Research before you get into anything

The better business bureau have listings of legitimate and tested businesses that are ensured to be scam free. Search the net for reviews and posting of people who are already members. Ask around, do your homework.

Look at their products, are they overpriced, will you actually be able to sell them?

Overpriced products are usually the sign of a hidden scam. After all how could you possibly sell a product which is double the price of its counterpart thatís already in the market?

After all the research and feeling around, the last thing youíve got to do is listen to your friends and family, after all, if one set of brain cells think its ok, a few other sets that think the same should be better.
