It must be a scam!
How many times have you said that to yourself?
If it is too good to be true then it is probably a scam.
The only way to avoid online scams is:
Try before you buy.
No matter how good an offer sounds if you have to subscribe to it before you have tried it, leave it alone.
If the offer is as good as it sounds then the seller would give you a chance of examining the article before asking for money.
But there are ways to avoid online scams.
Would you buy a pair of shoes before you tried them on? No, of course, you wouldn’t, so why would you pay for an offer of downloading software to make money online before you have tried it?
Of all the distinguishing qualities of a person or people, probably the most dominant feature is greed.
Wanting something for nothing, or making a lot of money for very little outlay, and that’s what the scammers prey on, make you an offer you can’t refuse for a reasonable fee, then when they have your money, hey presto the disappearing rabbit trick, no contact and nowhere to be found, and you are left with software that is very basic but you can upgrade for an additional payment.
Don’t Get Hooked In.
Another tell tale sign is the pop-up window when you try to leave the page, telling you that because you are the 1000th customer, you qualify for a discount on the advertised price, of course you are, so are the 1000 people before you.
When you get an offer online, time is of the essence, think about it, look deeper into the offer, do research on the article through Google.
Very often if you type into the search bar the actual offer that is being made or the company involved, 9/10 will have reviews from people that have already been exposed to it and you get a very good idea if this is genuine or just another scam.
Don’t be fooled by the “You must act now” message attached to any offer, there will be plenty of time to invest if the offer is genuine or the offer of large profits in a short space of time, believe me, that just does not happen.
Always be aware of anything that doesn’t ring true, scammers are very clever, they will have you believe that black is white if you let them, so do not take in everything that’s written, take time and be sure before you click.
Money Back Guarantees.
Watch out for those Money Back Guarantees that are offered, most are not as guaranteed as they sound.
T’s C’s are put on the returning item and they are pretty stringent, so if you have an item that you acquired through the post with a 60-day guarantee on it, you had better make sure that the item is exactly how it was when you received it and the packaging is in mint condition. The software that you have bought is probably from an affiliate of the company and has already been paid out, so the company are going to make it very uncomfortable for you in returning any money that you have paid them.

Is Wealthy Affiliate a Scam?
Wealthy Affiliate is not a make money online site.
WA sets out to teach you how to earn a living online, by educating you into building a website that will earn you an income from the internet, in many different ways.
If WA was in any way scammy, it would ask you for a fee to download the program, or least ways give you a free look around after you have left your credit card details so it could bill you instantly at the end of your trial period.
Wealthy Affiliate doesn’t do either of these.
Yes, you do get a free 7-day use of all the premium tools, but you also get the choice to continue or not, and only then do they ask for payment.
I am a member of this site and everything the owners say, as to what the site is all about is absolutely true. There are no forceful up sales, you get exactly what they say you will get with the free starter pack which virtually sets you up to start earning, and only when you are completely satisfied, do you advance to a premium membership. There is an incentive to upgrade within 7 days of joining but again it is completely up to you.
Waste a couple of minutes watching this video of a member explaining the worth of Wealthy Affiliates, it will be worth your time!
