How to look for hints that tell you if a product is a scam
The internet is filled with scammy products promoting instant wealth overnight. Here are the 5 questions that you need to ask yourself before you even think about giving your money away. This is how to check if a website is a scam.
Question 1: Does it sound too good to be true?
I know that it sounds simple enough, but people tend to forget this as they get enticed by the idea of making money online with little to no effort.
The more experienced “online money makers” know that there is no such thing, but for the newbies and inexperienced it’s quite different as they can easily get lured into the trap of “Make easy money with little to no effort” scams and by the way, they tend to be very creative of the ways they go about it.
Remember this: If it sounds too good to be true, that’s probably because it is.
Question 2: Is it a Video only page?
If the page that you have landed on is promoting a certain internet marketing product with a video only, there is a pretty big chance it’s a SCAM.
The reason why I’m saying this is because, when you find yourself on a landing page with just a simple but long video and nothing else, they will most likely try to lure you into a purchase with their sale’s pitch and/or ridiculous claims of making a lot of money in a short period of the time.
They will just waste your time telling you how you will get rich but they never give you enough information on the product itself and will usually leave you curious with many questions. That’s a scam in our book.
Question 3: Is there a 30 to 60-day guarantee?
If there is let’s say a 60-day guarantee and they emphasize on this all the time, then it’s probably just another clickbait. What you would usually get in a similar scenario is a low-quality product for a far more expensive price than it’s original worth. Be careful out there.
Question 4: What are people saying about that product?
While you are always running the risk of stumbling upon a fake review made from the company that is promoting that product, telling you how good and wonderful it is, the fact to the matter is that there are far more true reviews than fake ones.
You should always look for more than one source of information. If on website “A” you have found a positive review of that product but on websites “B,C, and D” you stumble across a lot of negative opinions towards that product then it probably is a scam.
Question 5: A picture says a thousand words… Wait, that’s not really a question, is it?
If a website is filled with pictures of people in expensive car’s, big mansion’s, shiny and expensive stuff that usually is because they lack credibility on their product and all they are trying to do is lure you in with shiny objects and promises of wealth. We say no thank you to Scammers.
