On line Scam Police Alert

POLICE have warned members of the public not to be fooled by international online scams on social websites requesting for money to clear parcels overseas.

A statement from police said people were being duped to spend their money in such fraudulent activities.

The statement also revealed that the police Cyber Crime Unit had dealt with two cases involving such scams from Labasa.

“The Cyber Crime Unit has received one report whereby a woman from Labasa had sent close to $2000 to a person claiming to be a Customs official at an international location to clear a parcel that was arranged to be sent over to her via social media,” the statement said.

“The second case involved a woman who had sent $200 for a similar scam while it was foiled after the victim had contacted police and was advised not to send any more money.

“The scam involves social media users being promised items such as laptops, phones, clothes, perfumes and other valuables that will be sent via a courier service.”

Police said members of the public have been asked to provide their postal address and phone contact after being promised a confirmation on the dispatch of the said parcel.

“After a few days someone will call claiming to be a Customs official asking you to send a certain amount of money to clear the parcel as it contained valuables that exceeded the transit value,” the statement said.

“We are also receiving enquiries from members of the public regarding the reliability of information received through social media.

“Different user names are being used which is why we are urging social media users to be aware of this scam.”

Anyone with questions or queries is requested to call the Cyber Crime Unit at your local police Dept.

Introduction to Wealthy Affiliate


I have a unique take on Wealthy Affiliate, the main reason being I am the owner.  Before you call “bias” on me, let me explain why my review of Wealthy Affiliate will serve to be of benefit you.

ONE, I have insight like nobody else into what Wealthy Affiliate is, where we came from and why we have been able to create the longest standing and what I like to think, the most innovative Internet Business community online.

TWO, I am probably our biggest critic of Wealthy Affiliate and I continue to be to this day.  I know Wealthy Affiliate is not perfect,nothing is perfect.  When you know that you are never going to be perfect, it gives you something to work towards right?   I honestly know where we lack, where we are great, and what we do well.

LASTLY, I care what you think and I care about helping people.  Because of this, I want you to offer your comments below this review if you have anything to say about Wealthy Affiliate, both good and bad.  I have tough skin and I want to prove the realness of this review but putting this out there.  You comment, I respond.

Before I get into the “what”, I want to outline the pros and cons of Wealthy Affiliate.

 

Why Being a Wealthy Affiliate Makes Sense!


If you are on this review, chances are you are interested in a few things.   Learning how to create a successful business online then being able to actually do it.  The platform at Wealthy Affiliate is going to allow you to do this, regardless of your background, your technical knowledge or your experiences.  If you can butter toast, you can build a business within Wealthy Affiliate as far as I am concerned. 🙂

Here are some of the most common “positives” that people love about WA.

  • Getting Started Training (the process is completely SIMPLIFIED!)
  • Video training, Tutorial training, Classroom training and Courses
  • Close the 700,000 HELPFUL community members
  • 13+ Full, Interactive Classrooms
  • Live & Interactive Help (even at 2am in the morning!)
  • 2 Free, Beautifully Designed Websites
  • State of the Art Secure and Fast Hosting
  • Access to Industry Experts & Millionaires
  • A strict spam free environment.
  • Completely FREE to Get Started! (with no catches)

The last one is a big one for most.  Not only do you get access to all of this, you get to do so for no cost.    This is the only program in the industry that does this and there is a good reason for it….YOU WILL LOVE YOUR EXPERIENCE AT WEALTHY AFFILIATE.  If you don’t, you can come back here and leave me a nasty comment. 🙂

What Exactly is Wealthy Affiliate?


Wealthy Affiliate is more of a service and community, and far less of a product.  The community at Wealthy Affiliate is second to Wealthy Affiliate Reviewnone and something that we pride ourselves in.  If you are a jerk or you like to spam, you are not going to be welcome within the community.   If you are looking to earn money online, network with fellow entrepreneurs, get help and help others, and learn a ton from the 1,000’s of experts at WA, it will be your new home.

One thing that you will find unique about Wealthy Affiliate is that Carson and I, the co-founders are very active within the community…on a daily basis.  You will even find us in there (sometimes into the early morning) helping folks get their campaigns running, website operating, or getting their businesses rolling in the right direction.

 

Who is Wealthy Affiliate For?


Wealthy Affiliate caters to all levels of marketers and entrepreneurs, from a brand newbie to someone that is running an already successful business and wants to scale it to a whole new level.  When you get access to the members area you are quickly going to be immersed in the community and the activity within the community.

So in a word, EVERYONE.  All levels of expertise, any age, any country.  It also works like a charm on iPads (I frequently use Wealthy Affiliate from my iPad!)…and mobile devices.    Anywhere that you have a connection to the Internet, you can be building your business, getting training, or getting help within Wealthy Affiliate.

 

Wealthy Affiliate Training & Tools


The Training is comprehensive, organized, and current within Wealthy Affiliate.  There is training for all levels of expertise, including training for even the most advanced marketer.   The training is offered in different formats:Wealthy Affiliate Classrooms

  • Live Weekly Training Classes
  • Question and Answer Periods
  • Organized Classrooms (on specific topics)
  • Interactive Discussions
  • Video Training, Tutorial Training
  • Task Based Courses

Seems like a lot right?  Because it is.  There are over ONE THOUSAND (1,000) powerful training modules within Wealthy Affiliate, essentially each Classroom reveals an entire different online business model that could be used to generate a full time income online.

And that is just some of the perks to being a member of Wealthy Affiliate.  You also get access to ALL of the tools you need to run a successful business online…

The Tools & Services within Wealthy Affiliate offer you a robust “tool belt” to accomplish all of your research, writing, and website

Easy to Build Websites!

building/hosting applications for your business.   Included in the members area is:

  • Keyword & Competition Research Tool
  • WordPress Express (3 click website builder)
  • Low Competition, Cherry Picked Keyword Lists
  • State of the Art, Unlimited Cloud Hosting (Premium Members)
  • Access to over 2,400 website templates/themes
  • Ability to add over 30,000 different “features” to your website
  • Rapid Writer, your content “friend”

Once inside Wealthy Affiliate, you don’t have to worry about tools and services need to run your business.  EVERYTHING is included, it truly is the only “all inclusive” online business platform out there.

 

It Takes a Community to Create a Success Story (Literally)


Have you ever needed help with something and ended up going to Google and searching for help.   I know how you feel.  When it comes to making money online and trying to create a successful business, it is nice to know that you can get help when you need it…and get it in a timely fashion.

That is what you get at Wealthy Affiliate with the live, 24/7 community and support system.  There are many different types of support offered at Wealthy Affiliate…

Personal support from Kyle

Support from me, PERSONALLY. 🙂

  • Live, 24/7/365 Chat
  • Interactive Discussions
  • Live Question & Answer periods
  • Private 1-on-1 support with ME
  • Private access to community experts

You are never alone and you will never feel like you are in the “dark” like you will with almost every other service out there.

Some people to this day find it hard to believe that me, the CEO and founder takes the time to help people out.  It is a reality within Wealthy Affiliate though, I am there to help folks.  With over 10 years of experience, I have a lot of things to share and a lot of insights that will help speed up your path to success.

What Sort of Work Will You Be Doing at Wealthy Affiliate?


I get many questions about “what will I be doing to make money at Wealthy Affiliate?”.   There are many things that you can do to earn revenue online, in fact, there are 100’s of different ways that are taught within Wealthy Affiliate.   However, I want to simplify things for you, so in a nutshell, this is how it works.

When you join, you are given two options.  You can either follow your passion, maybe you like coaching basketball or gardening, you can choose that as your direction.  This is going to be your starting point and the initial training course is going to show you how you can take your passion and turn it into a full time business within the online world.  Cool stuff right?

If you don’t have a passion or a niche, or you want us to choose one for you, then that is OK too.  Wealthy Affiliate has an affiliate bootcamp with a “predefined” topic that you will be building a business from.  This training is a complete walk through, starting at the bare bones and there is no experience necessary.

So basically, you are going to learn to take your passion and create a business online.  It starts with a niche website, and it is going to end with you earning in a whole variety of ways from that website.  This can be through the promotion of affiliate programs, ads, or otherwise.  If you want a more in depth explanation go to my “how making money online works” post.

 

The Price


Wealthy Affiliate has two membership price points:

Starter Membership, $0 (Join Here)
Premium Membership, $49 per month / $359 per year (Join Here)

$0 seems too good to be true, but that statement would be completely wrong…and I will explain why .   When you join Starter, you are going to be granted instant access to the Wealthy Affiliate community.  This includes access to live chat, over 500 training modules, 3 classrooms, networking, commenting, 2 free websites, access to the keyword tool.  On and on and on.

To be honest, there isn’t another paid product in the industry that can compete with Wealthy Affiliate’s FREE Starter membership, other than…

Wealthy Affiliate Premium.  This is the “be all end all” package if you are even remotely interested in an online business.   Wealthy Affiliate was created to remove all of the other “stuff” you need to worry about during your day to day activities.  The pesky hosting fees, the pesky keyword tool fees, website builder fees, paying for hired help, searching the net tirelessly for answers to your questions, and getting access to the RIGHT training…all those things have vanished within Wealthy Affiliate Premium into a single low price.

I always say that once you have Wealthy Affiliate Premium, you will never buy another guru book, internet scam, or expensive online success course again.  I mean it!  Absolutely EVERYTHING you need is at WA, including the 1-on-1 expert help from real living, breathing and proven experts.

You will never get scammed again online if you are a Premium member at Wealthy Affiliate, I can assure you of that.

 

My Final Opinion + Special BONUS!


Join the starter, it’s $0.  You can come back here to my site and yell at me if you don’t like it (seriously).  And did I mention it was free?   Upon joining, I will make sure to get in touch with you within the first hour.  I want you to make me one promise however if you do join…that you will set-up your account.  It is simple and you will be walked through it upon joining WA.

Join Wealthy Affiliate, it’s $0 (Free)!

 

How to Claim Your Bonus…

When you join your FREE Starter Account, I am going to offer you a bonus if you do decide to become a PREMIUM member in the first 7 days (including a 59% discount).  When you create your account at Wealthy Affiliate, I will be personally contacting you on your profile with my “hello” and some more information about WA, how to get help from me, and how to claim your bonus.  Trust me, this is going to be some AWESOME stuff (hint: it includes my FULL 10 years of experience and mentorship!)

You will never know what you have been missing all of these years until you step foot inside of Wealthy Affiliate.

Reporting Online Business Scams

Internet fraud is the use of Internet services or software with Internet access to defraud victims or to otherwise take advantage of them. Internet crime schemes steal millions of dollars each year from victims and continue to plague the Internet through various methods. Several high-profile methods include the following:

  • Business E-Mail Compromise (BEC): A sophisticated scam targeting businesses working with foreign suppliers and companies that regularly perform wire transfer payments. The scam is carried out by compromising legitimate business e-mail accounts through social engineering or computer intrusion techniques to conduct unauthorized transfers of funds.
  • Data Breach: A leak or spill of data which is released from a secure location to an untrusted environment. Data breaches can occur at the personal and corporate levels and involve sensitive, protected, or confidential information that is copied, transmitted, viewed, stolen, or used by an individual unauthorized to do so.
  • Denial of Service: An interruption of an authorized user’s access to any system or network, typically one caused with malicious intent.
  • E-Mail Account Compromise (EAC): Similar to BEC, this scam targets the general public and professionals associated with, but not limited to, financial and lending institutions, real estate companies, and law firms. Perpetrators of EAC use compromised e-mails to request payments to fraudulent locations.
  • Malware/Scareware: Malicious software that is intended to damage or disable computers and computer systems. Sometimes scare tactics are used by the perpetrators to solicit funds from victims.
  • Phishing/Spoofing: Both terms deal with forged or faked electronic documents. Spoofing generally refers to the dissemination of e-mail which is forged to appear as though it was sent by someone other than the actual source. Phishing, also referred to as vishing, smishing, or pharming, is often used in conjunction with a spoofed e-mail. It is the act of sending an e-mail falsely claiming to be an established legitimate business in an attempt to deceive the unsuspecting recipient into divulging personal, sensitive information such as passwords, credit card numbers, and bank account information after directing the user to visit a specified website. The website, however, is not genuine and was set up only as an attempt to steal the user’s information.
  • Ransomware: A form of malware targeting both human and technical weaknesses in organizations and individual networks in an effort to deny the availability of critical data and/or systems. Ransomware is frequently delivered through spear phishing emails to end users, resulting in the rapid encryption of sensitive files on a corporate network. When the victim organization determines they are no longer able to access their data, the cyber perpetrator demands the payment of a ransom, typically in virtual currency such as Bitcoin, at which time the actor will purportedly provide an avenue to the victim to regain access to their data.

Frequent instances of Internet fraud include business fraud, credit card fraud, internet auction fraud, investment schemes, Nigerian letter fraud, and non-delivery of merchandise. For information on the most common complaints and scams, see the annual reports of the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3), a partnership of the FBI and the National White Collar Crime Center. Also see its information on Internet Crime Schemes and its Internet Crime Prevention Tips.

Use our online tips form or the IC3 website to report potential cases of Internet fraud.

Researching On-Line Business Scams

Work from home job postings are everywhere. There are listings for data entry jobs, research positions, multi-level marketing opportunities, and a variety of other ways to make a lot of money fast. In fact, there are so many of them that work at home schemes are on the National Consumers League’s list of Top 10 Frauds.

Unfortunately, most of those positions aren’t what most people would consider a “real” job or any kind of job at all.

There are no benefits, no hourly wage or salary, only a promise of making money. Sometimes these opportunities are supposedly so lucrative that fees are charged to give you the listings, provide you information on getting started, or to set up your business.

The simple answer to the question of whether you should pay for work from home job listings, in a word, is no. Despite what the work at home ads and companies might promise you, legitimate employers pay you, not the other way around.

Typical Work at Home Scams
Review these typical work at home scams to research the type of opportunities that are legitimate before you waste time applying.

Too Good to Be True
Take a look at these sample work from home ads:

$1000 A Day From Home
Automated – No Sales
Cash Money Every Day
Get Paid Paid Daily via ATM

With this one, you don’t have to do much other than go to any ATM machine to collect.

Work from Home Part Time
Earn $10K or more a month

This ad had a disclaimer in a tiny font at the bottom of the page which said there is risk involved and you might not do as well.

The “might not do as well” part was repeated at least four times in the disclaimer.

If you think about it logically, the chances of making money doing a minimal amount work simply aren’t high – other than, perhaps, for the people making money scamming others. Think twice before you click on anything that sounds too good to be true – it is.

Find Company Information

If you’re still not sure, and remember, companies can be very creative about how they advertise their opportunities because they want you to think that the position is legitimate, there are places to research work at home companies.

Better Business Bureau (BBB)
Enter the company name or the web site into the Better Business Bureau search box to find out whether there have been complaints and whether the company has an unsatisfactory record with the Bureau. I entered the name of a company I was interested in and found there had been seven complaints, all of which were unresolved and discovered that the company’s record was unsatisfactory.

Federal Trade Commission (FTC)
The FTC provides information on commission actions. For example, operators of online malls that disguised themselves as legitimate business opportunities settled Federal Trade Commission charges that they were actually illegal pyramid schemes.

Scam.com: Work at Home Scams
The Work at Home Scams Bulletin Board has information on work at home scams and registered users can post questions about scams.

There is also an MLM/Pyramid Scams bulletin board.

Finally, be wary and be careful. Despite the best efforts of computer systems and staff, it’s hard for job sites to stop work at home scams from being posted. Posters are creative and sophisticated and are continually coming up with new ways to advertise their information.

Report a Scam
Have you been scammed or almost scammed? Here’s how to report a scam, including where and how to report an employment scam.

There is a loophole marketing technique that many so called “gurus” are using these days in attempt to take advantage of folks Free Book Plus Shipping Schemeonline.

The process in my eyes is quite abusive and it leads to people getting sucked out of $1,000’s of their hard earned money when all they wanted was a free book.  And for this reason, I present you with the Free Plus Shipping book scheme.
You have likely seen many of them, all you have to do is go to your Facebook feed and scroll through a few items and you will likely see one of these offers on there.  Such an example would be:” Get my free book, all you have to pay for is the shipping?”

If you have seen offers like this, great.  I am going to fill you in.  If you haven’t perfect, I am going to offer you insights to guard yourself from potentially losing a lot of money as a result of these.  If you have succumb to one of these offers, chances are this post is going to be something that you are really going to be able to relate to.

Just the shipping, seems like a good deal right?

Well usually you end up paying $10 or so for shipping (or more), this covers the cost of the production of the book.   This removes the entire idea of the owner of the book capturing a loss every time he or she gives one of these away.  In fact, often times you are not just paying for the product + shipping costs, there is a positive ROI being generated from the “shipping” costs.

The problem is that these free books are typically completely worthless and if they have a hint substance, were they worth the price of a normal soft copy book that you could have gotten from your local book store?  Highly doubtful. Could you not have gotten a better book by going through Amazon and searching for a “credible” author, one with clout within a given industry and the business world that could have offered you insight.

The point is, there is no risk for the creator of these “free e-books” because you are actually paying for the product when you send them money for the shipping costs.  Free is not free after all.

A Quality Book, Or One That Lacks Substance?

As I have already briefly touched on, the free books are just a tool for these marketing companies to “sink” their teeth into your wallet.  Perhaps a little nibble at first, but there is much more to come.

The actual value you get with these books is going to be limited.   These books are often times written over a weekend or in a few weeks time.  They are almost definitely going to be full of continual company branding or in some cases, complete sales pitches.  The ultimate goal is not going to be leaving you with value, it is to get you to sign up for their other product and services.

Not ALL are horrible, but any legitimate author is going to charge for their “books”.  You see the likes of Timothy Ferris (the guy from 4 hour work week) creating incredibly insightful content, content that people are willing to pay for even though we are residing within a digital world.

You see Seth Godin charging for his books, he always writes wonderful and very useful content.  You see Warren Buffet charging for his books.   You see Malcolm Gladwell charging for this books.  (These are a few of my favourite authors by the way).

They charge because they offer value and insights within the actual book.  The book is not a marketing ploy that is going to lead to other incredible upsells and costs.   Which is what I want to discuss.

The Free Book is Just the Start

You will find that the internet is rife with complaints about people that have gotten sucked into these offers.  They have been sucked out of several $1,000’s within back end offers, be it through live “seminars”, webinars, expensive digital products, or directly into an MLM scheme.

When you buy the book, YOU instantly become a marketing tool for this company.  You are a buyer, they have your credit card, they have your address, and now they are going to be able to promote other stuff to you.  In the world of shady marketing, you have become an ‘object’ of further revenue for the company that is offering the free e-book offer.

The free plus shipping book is their slimy way of exposing your personal details, which they will then utilize to commoditize you.

Are People Falling For The “Free Book” Trap?

The answer is YES (unfortunately).

Someone operating their business in this way would say, “well this is just marketing”.  I would argue that.   There are ethical ways to sell and to build revenue and there are unethical ways to do this.  When you are misleading your customers through a complete illusion or a facade (which the free book plus shipping is), then you are operating your business in an unethical way.

I hope that those that read this, that are seeing these offers and may even be intrigued by them truly have an appreciation and understanding what is going on.  I hope that those of you that have been sucked into a resulting scam or scheme from these sorts of “free book” offers will share their experiences below.

And I hope that those that have taken part in a free book offer recently have the knowledge now to protect them from additional costs that are instituted often times by various forms of pressure marketing.

I would love your feedback, questions, or insights you have into the “free book…plus shipping” offers.  Please leave your comments below!
