Program Name: Cash From Home
Summary: Fake ‘make money online’ program run by a team of known scammers that have had action taken against them by the FTC as I explain below. I do not recommend this. Signing up to this will almost certainly end in disappointment, frustration and/ or losing significant amounts of money.
What This Is About
The sales page presents this as a genuine work from home opportunity and even goes as far as to say it provides you with a ‘wealth development certification’ that allows you to tap into the billion dollar link posting industry.
Where do I start…
Let’s start with some known facts:
FACT: There is no such thing as a ‘certified search engine link posting course’… period.
FACT: You will not make any kind of decent money just by posting links I can assure you.
FACT: Mary Rogers is a fake name and uses stock photography. In fact, every comment, testimonials, income example and so called news network affiliation is a giant load of BS.
Take a look at the fake news website featuring Mary Rogers I reviewed a while back that links people to Home Cash. Nothing about that website is real and the entire set-up is a sham.
The closest thing to what they are stating this is about is called affiliate marketing which in itself IS a legitimate business model.
The problem is they feed people half truths about companies like Amazon paying people to post links. In the very technical sense of the word they in fact do pay affiliates to ‘post links’… but there is whole business behind this.
You will certainly not just sign up and start posting links for cash… that is a straight up lie.
You need real training, tools and support from real marketers to take advantage of this kind of online business model. Like any legitimate business though, it takes hard work and dedication to become successful. Don’t let these ‘gurus’ fool you into thinking online business is some kind of push button gig.
That is probably the single biggest lie they are telling people and the reason so many fail to make a success of things. It’s not going to happen at the push of a button.
Why They Do This
They do exactly what every other marketer or business does: present a group of people with whatever it is they are looking for.
In this case the majority of people they target are desperate to make money relatively quickly on the internet without having any previous skills or knowledge. In other words, they are just telling people exactly what they want to hear and selling them false hope. They couldn’t care less about how good the product is in itself or how much genuine value it gives a person.
Legit marketers on the other hand, help that same group of people find what they are looking for by offering relevant value, not broken promises and false hope. They would explain that it is highly unlikely they’ll make money that easily, but that it is possible to create a profitable online business within 3-6 months with enough hard work and determination.
They would recommend something they know for a fact is going to do what they say it will do and give people real value.
The bottom line is that the only thing the people behind this scam care about is money in their pockets, your money to be precise.
How This Scam Works
The entire operation is designed to obtain an unsuspecting individual’s personal information, sell them a useless product (that most people can’t even log into) and convince them to buy higher ticket items like coaching etc soon after joining. They systematically hit people with a constant series of pushy phone calls, emails and text messages in an attempt to sell more (and more expensive) scam products.
They convince people these additional purchases are necessary to really make this work.
But it doesn’t stop there…
They (for a fact) rent and sell your personal information to third parties who also spam you with anything and everything.
The bottom line is that it works for them and they keep these websites coming. They simply delete a particular version after it gets a certain amount of heat and publish the same or similar version under a different URL and website name.
They’ve been at this for years…
How Do They Get Away With It?
First and foremost, this is the internet! There are many ways and means for less than legit folks to get away with this kind of behaviour online. Sad but true.
They play on the fact that not everyone looks at the fine print and a lot of people don’t know how making money online really works.
Take this for example:
They trick people into thinking this is a secure payment facility when the reality is that couldn’t be further from the truth. The payment gateway is NOT secure and it has not been verified at all. Best case they purchased the above ‘trust guard’ once in 2012 for one website that wasn’t scamming people (I haven’t found one of those yet lol) and just copied and pasted the above logos into every payment page they run thereafter.
This in itself is a pretty scary thing if you think about it. This shows that this crew is in full control of the payment gateway you are entering your credit card information into- instead of a legitimate third party. There have been many reports over the years about un approved transactions on peoples accounts after signing up and it’s not hard to see why.
Recently I discovered something very cool though…
The FTC caught up with them and have taken action!
I could hardly believe it when I came across this but they have actually managed to catch up with the people behind this and have taken action against them. It hasn’t stopped this team of scammers but it’s a positive step in the right direction, a step closer towards saving people from losing money to this.
In reality, this and other scams will continue for the foreseeable future. The best thing you can do is educate yourself and warn those you know and care about.
I’m currently compiling a list of all of these websites I’ve come across and when I’m done I’ll come back and put a link here. I am doing this to shed light into everything these scammers are touching so that once they hit delete and create another version, people will still know what they’re about instead of being unable to learn the truth.
The more people that know about this the less people lose money, plain and simple.
Needless to say, I do not recommend this. It is a blatant scam that offers no value whatsoever.
