Scams and the Internet – Honesty really is the best policy

Scams and the Internet- Honesty is the best policy

Hi and thanks for stopping by.

As you can see by the title of this blog, today is about Scams and the Internet and how Honesty really is the Best Policy so let’s look into this a bit further here

I got stung a few times when I 1st started out in the online world and feel it only right I share with you what I have learned along the way and also share a couple of great business opportunities with you where honesty really is the best policy.

Flashy websites 

OK, I have your attention GOOD!!!

If you see a website where a guy/gal is standing in front of this type of car telling you all you have to do is pay$… to join and within a year you too will be driving one of these without doing anything because everything is on autopilot-RUN as fast as you can from this place as this says SCAM!!! and there are literally 100’s of sites promising you everything for doing nothing and this is far from honest.

Or you see these ads on pages when you are asked to click on a link within a website- Again in my opinion and from experience these are SCAMS as well so get out before you get in and its cost you a lot of money for no return. This, of course, is only my opinion and I feel with my years of experience and success I’m pretty onto it when it comes to things to beware of.

Upsells

These are terrible and if you go looking for business opportunities you are bound to come across places like GAZ, Crypto Coin and other places where they offer you a pretty reasonable offer to get you in and once you are inside their platform, you have to pay $475 example, for ….. and oops $ 1795 for ….. and upwards to $6k and more sometimes.

Good Businesses- what to look out for.

When it comes to Scams and the Internet- Honesty is the best policy with everything you choose to do online and if it isn’t honest, you will more than likely get hurt financially and emotionally and I have heard a lot of peoples stories when it comes to being hurt by SCAM artists. Not sure why they are called artists? Maybe its because they are really great at their skill or trade like an artist is. The only difference is an artist is doing good work and a scam artist is not at all.

Ok, enough of me going on about Scams and Crooks. Let’s learn about 2 great business opportunities online which are both honest and worth doing.

CTFO- “Changing the Future Outcome”

What a statement- Changing the future outcome. And that is exactly what they are doing. 🙂

So what do CTFO market? They market CBD products ranging from drops for pain, seizures, muscle cramps, restless legs, and more to creme for your skin, face… and they have a gorgeous range to see on their website so go take a look

They also have products for animals for arthritis and other ailments animals get which is so great. I love animals especially my 2 dogs.

Healing people and animals and relieving pain for 1000’s of people is what CTFO does every day. How is this not cool?

CTFO is a business that invites people to join for FREE, yes FREE and help them promote their amazing products. To do this is so easy. CTFO gives you 2 Free websites to use to market the products and everything is set up for you from the get-go.

I am an associate with CTFO and I believe this is a really honest way to help as many people as we can get pain relief naturally and also animals. CTFO give back as well and there ethics and mission are awesome.

If you are new to the online world you may want to join a platform where you can learn the skills you need to become really successful online marketer you may want to join the next business I am going to talk about.

Having said that you can use all of the Social Media platforms to get you started. Twitter, Google + (get it with a Gmail account), Facebook, Linkedin. Pinterest, Quora, Instagram and all the others that are out there. A great way to spread your website Url and knowledge you will learn once you are an associate.

Also there in the online meeting, you can attend which is live online every week and learn more cool ways to market your new business.

My rating for CTFO 9/10

So what are your thoughts om CTFO now that you have had a look?

OK, moving onto the next business.

Wealthy Affiliate- Is it honest?

10/10 Honest!!! Yes,it sure is and when Kyle and Carson, 2 guys from Canada built it over 13years ago these 2 really knew how to create something really special and over the years both of them and a team behind the scenes have built a state of the art system to help people from all over the world build a successful online business and it has gone from strength to strength as there are over 1.5 million members at Wealthy Affiliates which is pretty incredible.

What are they all about?

If you want to become an affiliate and grow a niche website then this is the best place to do this. Having a niche website is kind of similar to CTFO’s website except you choose the business/product/subject you want to help people with and inside the platform at Wealthy Affiliate, there is the best training offered as part of being a member so you can learn every aspect from creating and building your website to how to market and build a successful online future.

There are 2 types of memberships.

Free – you get 2 free websites that are subdomains hosted by Rubix and some of the training and a few other things.

Premium is the other membership, and this is $49 per month or $359 for a year which works out to be around $20 month approx to own your own business, in fact premium membership gives all kinds if really wonderful tools and rather than me tell you it all here, just check out the membership pic below.

So as you can see that is pretty incredible for the price of a membership. I remember joining for free to take a look inside to see if it was everything I had been told and within a very short time I knew this place was going to be the best ever.

I now have 5 websites all doing great and success is my friend so if you think this is something you would like to do, I’ll see you on the other side to give you my help when you need it along with all the other awesome people inside Wealthy Affiliate Community.

It really is superb and I do hope you will go and see for yourself. you won’t even be asked for credit/debit card and that is really great for people. what are your thoughts?

In conclusion

Well, Scams and the Internet and Honesty is the best Policy has come to an end and  I feel really good to be able to share this information with you and if you help in anyway then, great.

Please leave a comment with your feedback, good or bad as I really appreciate your honesty as well.

Thank you and I hope to see you soon.

  1. The discussion can go on and on when it comes to internet scams! Almost everyday I see a new one. I consider, beside the obvious scams, programs that charge a small fee, so they can revel a bigger fee into the final bigger fee, to be scams as well. They seem pretty inviting and innocent at first but take a turn real quick!

    Thank you for spreading some positivity around.

    1. Yes Waj
      There are so many scams online and being part of Wealthy Affiliate sure makes a refreshing option for 1.5 million people
      I love it and I am successful because of this awesome platform and hard work of course
      Wishing you all the best

  2. Great information about joining Wealthy Affiliate. I have been a WA member for two months and I agree it is a very honest and helpful platform with a great community and a lot of education and tools to help you create a website of your own and create a revenue stream for years to come.

  3. Hi Vicki,
    You are right there are so many scams out there. I actually had a free book posted out to me from the government in Australia called “The Little Black Book of Scams” when I was a victim of identity theft.
    It is quite small but very comprehensive about all types of scams. You can also get a free PDF online if you Google it online. America and Canada have the same book. I wonder if New Zealand does too.

    Great article Vicki.
    Cheers Coucka
