2  General Category / General forum / what makes a scam on: March 06, 2009, 10:56:59 am
Many people have tried an assortment of (so called) High Yield Programs and have been disappointed with the results. I find that this is mostly the fault of the participant, not the fault of the program or the programs which are selected.

It is obvious that 99% of all programs are not real programs. Instead, they are deliberate ponzi schemes which pay some people a profit at the expense of others. I have described how this process works in more detail in previous newsletters, but basically money is redistributed. No new money is created, which means some people must lose money in order for others to gain it.

Since 99% of all programs are not legitimate earning opportunities, how do you know which programs are worth checking out and which are not? Experience has indicated several factors which are prominent in all questionable programs. Perhaps these notes will help you to stop losing money in the future.

The most common feature of all foolish programs is a small entry fee. While high entry fee programs may or may not be legitimate, all small entry fee programs are scams. Some programs accept as little as US $10 while others look for US $50. There are real programs which are trader direct and really pay amazing interest rates, but you must have at least US $1,000,000 in order to get into them. Unfortunately, those are very rare, most of the real programs require at least US $10,000,000. That is a lot of people at US $10 a head.

Now, why do scams focus on such small amounts? First, when they steal the money, you are not likely to be very annoyed over US $10. Second, a lot of people will risk US $10 on something they think might be a scam while they will not try US $1,000 on a program they think might be real.

US $10 will cover a movie ticket, a novel, and maybe one-fourth the price of a video game.

It is not possible for a company to support member email and accounting with such a small investment and still have any money left over for the investment. How much time do you think it requires to track deposits and earnings or to answer email? If it requires more then a few minutes, and it does, then your US $10 is already spent just setting up your account and maintaining your records.

A company which accepts a deposit amount which is smaller then the cost of overhead obviously does not plan to speak with you very much or to maintain your records to any great extent.

Next, many companies which offer a large sponsoring bonus are generally not real companies. The purpose of a sponsoring bonus is to cause people to advertise on the behalf of the company. In other words, if you talk your friends into enrolling, then the company will pay you a portion of their money. Up front large sponsoring bonuses are nothing more than a lure for greedy people.

Companies which focus on heavy recruiting do that because they anticipate a short life span. In other words, they want as many people as possible to enroll in as short a time frame as possible. To say that a different way, it costs them nothing to pay you a small portion of the new member deposits because they keep the rest and they want as many people as possible to join before they close.

Sponsoring bonuses are generally paid instantly. Some people think this means the company is working and legitimate, but paying something so quickly always means a scam.

Paying you a part of the new member deposits up-front does not mean the company is legitimate, it just means they are trying to accelerate the enrollment rate. It also means that the actual investment is not as stated or is not very real. Payment of up-front fees lowers whatever is left over from the US $10, after administration costs are deducted, from the amount put into the investment. Once the sponsoring bonuses are removed from the new member deposit, the amount left over is rarely anything that can be pooled for a US $1,000,000 trade. In many cases, this is something like US $5. How many people need to enroll at US $5 per warm body in order to generate US $1,000,000 or US $10,000,000?

Most people use their sponsoring bonuses to convince other people that the program works, which is why those payments are made. However, even a couple payments will never prove anything. There will always be money for a few token payments. The up-front sponsoring bonuses are a small price to pay for the many new members that will enroll as a result of those small payments.

By the way, new programs which pay sponsoring bonuses or earnings right off the bat are also (in almost all cases) a scam. These earnings are suppose to come from a trade source of some kind, which is not possible until people pool up to the amount needed for trade. If you are among the first 1,000 people in (at US $10, US $50, or even US $100 per person), how can they already be in trade? Taking this a step further, if they are already in trade (and earning the 50% monthly or whatever they advertise), then why are they bothering to including you and your US $10?

Another scam indication is the short time frame for payment. Again, this is designed to put token payments into the hands of people very quickly so that they will sponsor others very quickly. When these payments happen, most people will be happy with the payments and report that the company works, but that is the same trap for greedy people as the sponsoring bonuses listed above.

Some programs promise a payout in as short as a day or two, others are at three days, some say a week. Unfortunately, none of those time frames are physically possible. As you know, Evocash, E-Gold, E-Bullion, OsGold, funds in small banks which are not SWIFT capable, and so forth, are not tradeable. In other words, funds invested with a company via an electronic currency must be moved into a real bank (actually a top world bank) in order to generate a profit.

If the payout time is one week, you must factor in three or four days to wire transfer the money (your US $10 or US $50) into a bank for trading. By the same token, you must also factor in three or four days for the profits to be wire transferred back into E-Gold or Evocash. At some point, earnings must be obtained, which is at least a couple of days. In most cases, trades pay weekly or monthly, but lets use a week in order to earn 100%. Using that week to earn an impossible earning rate, you would need two weeks in order for earnings to be generated and paid by the program.

Any program that promises to pay earnings in less then two weeks is a scam. The money for payments is obviously coming from member deposits. It is possible that other funds are already in trade, but to be realistic, all programs with short payment dates are not legitimate or physically possible.

The flip side of the time frame issue is extremely long payment dates. These dates are such so that the company can fade away long before people start looking for their funds. A program in this category might be pooling funds for a couple of months with the expectation to get into trade later (which will require a month or two before profits are paid). Or it might be selling some kind of promissory note for payment in a year or two. Either way, the money will be gone in a couple of months and you will not even know the company has closed.

Other programs offer fixed payment time frames, for example 44 days or something similar. The trade is based on US $1,000,000 or US $10,000,000 and is ongoing long before your US $10 or US $50 was added to the pot. There is only one trade and it pays when the bank contract says it pays. The company, unless it has 365 million dollars, is not starting a new trade every day, which means the 44 days (or whatever) are pointless. Just a marketing tactic.

You may infer that, because a new contract is not starting every day, that payments based on your date of membership are not realistic. In other words, that program is not legitimate, or even physically possible.

A final common scam give away is a high interest rate. Promising to pay somebody 100% in a week is what it takes to generate a lot of greedy people to donate US $10. Most people are happy risking US $10 or US $50 on a program which pays 50% a month. However, in reality, if something really paid 100% in a week or 50% a month, why would they bother sharing that with people putting in US $10?

The real programs, which really exist, pay around 25% to 30% monthly for US $1,000,000 or around 10% weekly for US $10,000,000. If you fax me a bank statement showing you have either US $1,000,000 or US $10,000,000 cash (which is free and clear and housed in a non-depletion sole signatory bank account), that is what you will earn. On the other hand, if you fax me a bank statement that shows US $10 or US $50, then you are wasting my time.

How is it possible for a company to pay a higher interest rate to somebody with US $10 than a person with US $1,000,000 can earn when that person can sit down with a real trader inside of the trade bank?

Of course, there are people who will tell you that they know of trades which pay much more then the 25% to 40% monthly as listed above. I suppose that is possible, but I would like to know the personal proof they have of this performance. Somebody brokering a program, who has never earned a commission to date, is not a very good source of trade industry information. On the other hand, we have seen 25% (US $1M) to 40% (US $10M) pay as stated in the past and it will pay as stated in the future. Other people will try for years at the fictitious higher earning rates and will never succeed for one reason or another.

I joined CashCrate 2 months ago and I have received payment by check for the offers I completed. I was really skeptical about it so I only completed enough offers to reach the minimum $10 payout before wasting a lot of time on the surveys. After I got my first check I started a blog to share the information about the site and post photos of my paychecks. I have joined other sites but this is the only one I have received payment from so far besides PineCone Research.

Good Luck!

First, I want to make a statement; don't waste your money signing up for any websites promising you $200 / day for a few minutes of filling out surveys. It's just not happening.
I have paid fees up to $69 each for joining several of these sites. Then I received a list of survey sites and was told to register with as many as possible, but no less than 150 in order to make money. I registered, it's been now over 2 month and I received only a handfull of invitations. Some will say "Survey not available" or "Quota filled". So far I made $2.75.

The most promising survey sites and the ones that pay you are the FREE ONES!

1.Global Test Market – I make an average of $120/month. Some of their surveys take some time to complete. You have to be fast and start their surveys immediately. Make sure you check your email twice a day. Their surveys expire very quickly or they get enough responses and close the survey.

2.Surveyspot.com – many of their surveys give you an entry to their sweepstakes. But they do give you $1.00, $2.00, $3.00 and $5.00 surveys once or twice per week. Potential earning: $30.00 - $50.00 /month.

3.Creationrewards.net – earn points which you then can turn into cash. Potential earning is about $30.00 - $50.00 /month.

4.Greenfield Online – lots of entries in their sweepstakes, some of those take a long time to complete. They pay you $2.00 for some of their surveys if you qualify. Potential earning: $10.00 - $15.00 /month.

5.ClearvoiceSurveys.com – once in a blue moon you will get a $1.50 - $3.00 survey. Sometimes they will tell you that you do not qualify after you already spent 10 minutes into they survey. Potential earning $10 - $15.00 /month.

6.e-Rewards.com – once in a blue moon you get a $1.00 to $2.00 survey. No CASH, coupons only. Potential earning $4.00 - $8.00 /month.

7.e-Search.com – they send invitation very rarely, Only $1.00 - $3.00 ever month. They credit you on your PayPal Account. Potential earning $ 1.00 - $3.00 /month.

8.Your2Cents.com – they send you $1.00 - $3.00 surveys three or four times per month.

9.www.inboxdollars.com not bad, but you are only allowed to earn $1.00/day. Sometimes it takes a few attempts to qualify for a survey. I have had days where no surveys where available. Potential to earn $30.00 / month.

10.www.sendearnings.com – same as Inboxdollars. You are only allowed to earn $1.00/day. Sometimes it takes a few attempts to qualify for a survey. I have had days where no surveys where available. Potential to earn $30.00 / month.

Useless Survey sites are:

www.PandaResearch.com . They just want you to sign up and try all kind of services. You will get paid a few Dollars, but many are difficult to cancel after the so called "trial period". If you sign up with too many, it's hard to keep track of them. Then all of a sudden you find all kind of charges on your credit card and don't know where they come from.

Useless Get-paid-for-reading-ads sites:

Tik Tak Cash – pays you $0.02 for the website they invite you to view. They only pay you for viewing one site per day! Well, do the math here how much you can make...

Cash4Offers.com – pays you $0.05 for viewing email/advertisement. Sometimes they send you 2 sites per day. Their main idea is to get you to sign up for trial offers.

Hits4Pay.com – pays you $0.02 - $0.03 for viewing email/advertisement. You can earn a few Dollars as soon as you have members in your downline ( 2 levels possible). Refer people to the site and get paid as soon as they start viewing those emails/advertisements.

DealsnCash.com – same as Hits4Pay - pays you $0.02 - $0.03 for viewing email/advertisement. You can earn a few Dollars when you create a downline ( 2 levels possible). Refer people to the site and get paid as soon as they start viewing those emails/advertisements.

Sometimes it gets quite frustrating. Many Survey Sites send me invitations, but as soon as I start with the survey, I get the message " Thank you, but the survey is over now" or "Thank you for participating in this survey, but you do not qualify. Check back later" or "We are experiencing technical difficulties, please check back later".

Many Survey Sites will check your answers and if they find inconsistency, they will stop sending you invitations.

Overall, be patient and hang in there.

13  Money making forums / strictly internet Marketing / EARN MONEY THROUGH DOMAIN PARKING NOW? on: January 03, 2009, 06:33:00 am
What Is Domain Parking?
Domain name parking allows web publishers and domain registrars to place contextual advertisements on under developed domains. This practice is used to further monetize domain name traffic by both registrars and domain name owners. Visitor traffic can come from a number of various sources which are explained below.
Type In TrafficType in traffic is generated when a web surfers types in the address of a “presumed website” such as coffee.com, car.com or auto.com. Type in domain traffic is the most valuable as their is no dependence on search engine traffic. These types of premium domains are extremely valuable and are often sold for millions of dollars.
Expired Domain TrafficExpired domain traffic is generated when a former website domain name expires. These “former website domains” often have old pages listed in search engines as well as inbound links pointing to the domain on related websites. These links and search engine listings can drive traffic over a period of time.
Domaining - Making Money With Parked Domains & Domain Resale
Over the last ten years thousands of individuals know as “domainers” have invested in premium domain names. Understanding the value in these names these individuals have purchased hundreds (even thousands) of domains with the intention of resale. Today the resale market (also called the secondary market) is as hot as ever. Companies like Sedo, NameBay and BuyDomains act as middle men between buyers and sellers and will also “park” your domain while you wait for a sale.
Today many domainers hope to sell their domains at a premium price while others will simply monetize and earn with paid parking. Which ever path you choose you will still want to park your domains initially prior to a sale.
Dozens Of Choices Available For Those Wanting To Park A Domain
As a full time internet marketer since 2002 I have steadily built up a fairly large portfolio of names myself. DomainParkingMoney.net offers my personal reviews and views of parking companies as well as domaining news and information.

If you think You can make Money Only By Bloggin, Then you are absolutely Wrong. Domaining is another important ways to Earn hell lots of money online. The only problem with Domaining is it needs a lot of market research and analysis to know which are the best domains you can buy. Domain Muguls Buy Domains in Bulk(it’s not in hundreds, it’s in thousands ).
How to Make Money With DomainsMy Knowledge as Far as Domaining is considered is limited and i’m looking forward to try my luck buying some domains and parking them. The Unused Domains you have can be parked (Eg: with sedo) and Earn money through CPC .Also you can redirect domain traffic to an existing monetized website. Now the Fact is How can it turn to huge Money?Consider the example, if you own a thousand domains and each domain is parked and earning a minimum of about say $0.10 on an average, that’s $100/day or about $3000/mth. The costs of thousand Domains In Bulk Would be like $6-$8 per domain Making the annual Cost to $6000 to $8000, But the Total earnings from Domain parking would be $36000 ,Earning a pretty good profit of over $28000.
Aviva Directory have written an excellent article about Domaining also read the CNN article about Kevin Ham, Internet’s Domain Mogul.
