Brexit Trader – Scam Exposed? Yes & Here’s Why

Unfortunately when something sounds too good to be true then it probably is… and Brexit Trader is a scam indeed, which I’m guessing you were suspicious of.

There are many automated trading software scams out there like this that exist and the best way to avoid them is to simply remember the saying just mentioned… “if something sounds too good to be true then it probably is.”

You also have to be careful with the loads of fake reviews that plague the internet. During my research I’ve come across other reviews of Brexit Trader that claim it is a good way to make easy money and that you should invest in it… but these reviews are complete BS and are just trying to make money off of unsuspecting individuals.

What Is Brexit Trader?

Brexit Trader is said to be an automated trading software that capitalizes on the volatility of Bitcoin price based on news coming out about Brexit. The idea is that Brexit announcements are going to increase the volatility of Bitcoin prices, giving traders big swings that they can capitalize on.

The idea makes sense… and there are media outlets like CoinTelegraph predicting that a no-deal Brexit will push Bitcoin to new highs.

The trading software is said to read the market and make predictions about price swings. It is said to be a whopping 99.4% accurate, which means that anyone who uses this trading software is guaranteed to profit… but this is a bit ridiculous as I’ll discuss in a bit.

Any trader knows that market volatility is a good friend. Now if you are long-term investing this is a different story–but for trading market volatility is a great thing. I actually trade bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies myself and an unstable market can be a lot of fun… and a good money-maker.

So the idea behind this trading software makes sense… but unfortunately just because it makes sense doesn’t mean it isn’t a scam.

Red Flags

When you land on the website for Brexit Trader it starts out like most other similar scams I’ve reviewed… Netflix Soft, Bitcoin Bonanza… there are plenty of examples.

First they show a bunch of news clips about why there is impending doom coming your way which makes you worried… then they show you some other news clips that lead one to believe their trading system is going to save everything.

First it starts off with news clips about how Brexit is going to cause massive rises in unemployment in the EU, then there are clips about how great Bitcoin is as a store of value and why you should invest.

So right off the bat it seems to be following the same scam blueprint as many others… and the red-flags pile up from there.

1. No Idea Who Is Behind This Software

The person introduced as the creator of this software goes by the name of “Paul Harrison” and he claims to be an ex software engineer and trader himself.

This is great and all… but I am very hesitant to believe any of this because there is nothing that we are told or shown that is verifiable. All of the information given on this “Paul Harrison” guy could easily have been made up for the purposes of promoting this scam… which I see happen all the time with scams like this.

2. Impossible Levels of Accuracy

99.4% accuracy… that is the claim made and it is one heck of a ridiculous claim.

There is no automated trading robot that exists even close to being this accurate and they expect me to believe that this one is even though we have no idea who is behind it and it follows the same blueprint of just about every other automated trading scam out there?

Even predicting a traditional market with over 90% accuracy is ridiculous… predicting the cryptocurrency market, which is known to be incredibly volatile and unpredictable, with 99.4% accuracy…? Come on now… this is just stupid.

3. Completely Free???

If you’ve ever taken a class in economics you’ve learned that nothing is free in life… except for things like breathing air. But Brexit Trader claims to be 100% free.

They tell us that there are NO BROKER FEES OR COMMISSIONS and that USING THE BREXIT TRADER COSTS NOTHING.

So how does this make sense? Where are they making money? They have to be making it from somewhere right?

Or are they just allowing people to use their software for free out of the kindness of their hearts?

Another major red flag.

4. Fake Testimonials

If this trading software really were as good as they say then you would think it would be easy for them to get real testimonials… but for some reason they are all fake…. Hmmmm…?

On the website they show a bunch of testimonials as shown below. You have a bunch of people claiming to make a ton of money with Brexit Trader and are ranting/raving about how great it is…

screenshot

But after doing some reverse Google Image searches for the people pictured in these testimonials I was able to find that they are NOT who they are shown as.

For example, the guy pictured in the top left above… his image is all over the internet on many different websites… which leads me to believe it’s just a stock photo…screenshot

The same goes for all the other testimonial photos. They are all fake.

This Is How You Get Scammed

The idea is that you:

  1. Register for free
  2. Fund your trading account
  3. and Start profiting

It sounds so simple.

But what happens is they will refer you to some unregulated broker that can’t be trusted and does not care about your money.

How it usually works is that scam opportunities, Brexit Trader in this example, have deals with the brokers they are referring people to and they make affiliate commissions from the money that they invest.

So Brexit Trader sends people to brokers to deposit money and they make money from the brokers.

It’s all a scam.

Once you deposit money with the broker you are assigned it may even appear as if you are making money, but when it comes to withdrawing that money you might run into some problems.

Conclusion – Scam

While I haven’t actually invested my money into the Brexit Trader, I am very confident in my position on it. I’ve reviewed so many similar scams it’s not even funny… literally dozens upon dozens over the years. Scams like this will continue to evolve and capitalize on new events going on in the world.

Stay safe and avoid anything that seems suspicious.

Remember, if something sounds too good to be true then it probably is.

Paid 4 Clout Scam – Nothing More Than a Waste of Time

Paid 4 Clout is another one of these websites claiming you can make up to $500 today just by referring people through social media. They also claim to give out a $25 bonus for signing up, but the problem with all of this is that it isn’t true.

Paid 4 Clout is a scam and in this review I’ll be going over why.

I’m sorry to disappoint, but unfortunately making money online isn’t quite this easy. There are a lot of scam websites out there identical to Paid 4 Clout that are luring in unsuspecting individuals, getting them to do work, but then scamming them and not paying.

Paid 4 Clout Review

paid 4 clout
My guess is you probably saw Paid 4 Clout promoted on social media, or maybe you even go an email with a link from someone promoting it. Unfortunately the people promoting it think they are going to make a bunch of money, just as P4C tells you, but they will end up being disappointed in the end when they find out they don’t get paid.

We are told that we can supposedly make $500 today and there is even a $25 sign up bonus just for signing up, for a limited time of course.

Right off the bat this sounds a little bit too good to be true… well… actually a LOT too good to be true. And you being the logical person that you are decided to take the time to do a little extra research beforehand, thus leading you to my review here.

But…

At the same time the website looks pretty professional, they claim to be the “#1 influencer network”, and the sound of making such easy money is very tempting. Not only that, but they also have all sorts of testimonials from people who have supposedly made a bunch of easy money through them.

How (They Claim) It Works

screenshot

Sounds easy enough… all they say that you have to do is 1) join, which is free and you supposedly get a $25 bonus for doing, 2) invite friends, share your influencer link and get paid $10 every time someone else joins, and 3) get paid via PayPal, CashApp, Bitcoin, checks in the mail and more.

They even have a calculator on the website where you enter in the # of followers you have on social media and it tells you how much money you could make on a daily basis.

I entered 300 just to see what it would say and it is telling me that I could make $73/day… which is pretty darn good considering this takes almost no work.
screenshot
However, this is mostly a bunch of lies.

Why it Does NOT Work Like They Tell You

Income Calculator Makes No Sense

Let’s talk about that income calculator, which is a bunch of BS.

How could it possibly estimate how much income you can make just by having you enter the amount of social media followers you have?

Answer: It can’t

They know nothing about your social media followers and how interested they might be in an opportunity like this. It’s ridiculous and is just some stupid feature they added to the website to try to make it seem legit.

$25 Sign Up Bonus Is Impossible

A $25 sign up bonus… really?

Come on now. This is getting more and more ridiculous. How on earth can they afford to be paying people $25 just to sign up?

The answer is that they can’t… and shortly I’ll show you what actually happens when you sign up.

Fake Testimonials

When you go to the Testimonials section of the website there are tons of videos from all these people who claim to have used this program to make loads of easy money. However, they are all fake.

Well, at least that is my assumption because I know for certain that some of them are fake.

Take for example the video shown below…

fake testimonials

As soon as I saw this guy I knew it was a fake. I’ve seen him many other times while reviewing scams online and this is because he is actually a paid actor that is available for hire on Fiverr. So the scammers behind this Paid 4 Clout scam paid him to make a video about it.

Here you can see a job posting of his on Fiverr…

fiverr

Lies About The Number of Members

The truth is that you can’t really trust anything this place tells you. Not only are the video testimonials proven to be fake, but the statistics they give us are ridiculous.

They tell us that they have over 300,000 members and have paid out over $44 million!, which is why they are the “#1 influencer network”…
screenshotHowever, I did a WHOIS search and found that this website was just registered in July of 2019… making it absolutely impossible for them to have gained this many members and paid out this amount of money in such a small amount of time.

Scam Complaints

There are also quite a few complaints you will find online from people who have tried to withdrawal their earnings without having any luck.

Take for example this complaint from ScamAdviser… 

scamadviser

Want to know how this really works? I’ll show you…

This Is What Happens When You Join

The first thing that happens is you get this ridiculous message saying that not only can you earn $10 when you get someone to join, but you will also earn $2 for every person that simply clicks on your link…

screenshot
How the heck can they possibly have the money to pay us $2 just when someone clicks our links? They can’t!

But anyways… here is the dashboard you see once you are logged in…

screenshot
You can see that right in the center you get your referral link that you can share. This is the main part of all of this.

What caught my eye is the blue button for “$30 Surveys & Apps”.

I was thinking $30 is a heck of a lot for taking surveys. I’m used to sites like Swagbucks that usually only pay $0.50 – $2 per survey. It sounds too good to be true but I checked it out anyhow…screenshot

Sure enough! It was too good to be true.

Sounds amazing to be able to win free smart phones and get paid up to $30 from Paid 4 Clout at the same time, but unfortunately this isn’t going to happen.

What happens is you are taken in a never ending circle of filling out information so that you can supposedly win the phone, but you never end up making it to the end. It’s basically a way for these scammers to extract as much personal information as possible from you, which they can then use for marketing purposes.

There was actually an identical scam a while back called Viral Pay that did the same thing. It also claimed to be the “#1 influencer network” and had a bunch of scammy looking offers, one of which was to win a $100 McDonald’s gift card…screenshot

It would tell you that you have to collect 100 points to get the gift card, but would lead you around in circles and I’m pretty sure it was impossible to ever collect those 100 points. It would basically direct you to a bunch of different websites to enter information, sign up for things, etc… just to collect all the personal information it could from you.

Conclusion = Scam

  • There is no way you can make $500 today
  • The $25 sign up bonus is impossible – Where on earth do they get enough money to be able to give people $25 just to sign up?
  • Earning $2 just for getting someone to click on your link is unheard-of… and for good reason–it’s impossible to stay in business paying people like this!
  • The video testimonials are known fakes
  • The stats they display are fake as well
  • The offers just take you in a bunch of circles and I doubt anyone has actually won any of them

All in all there is nothing legitimate about this website. To me it seems like one big scheme to harvest as much personal information from people as possible.

They trick people into promoting this opportunity with the hopes of making money online and then trick everyone to enter more and more information when trying to win offers.

Don’t expect to make any money and don’t expect to win any offers. What you can expect is to get a ton of spam in your email inbox after signing up for all sorts of things they push you to sign up for.

Looking For a Real Way to Make Money Online?

If you want something that is actually proven to work then I highly suggest Wealthy Affiliate, which is the same program I’ve been using since 2015 to make money online.

Why do I recommend this program? Well, simply because I know from experience that it works.

AliProfits System Scam – Avoid This Money Trap [Review]

Is the AliProfits System really a guaranteed way to make $500 a day with just 30 minutes of work? It sounds incredible, but unfortunately I have heard similar claims all too many times before, and they usually turn out to be scams.

So is AliProfits System a scam or is this finally the once in a lifetime opportunity that we all have been waiting for.

Well… I’m sorry to say, but this is definitely NOT that once in a lifetime opportunity to strike it rich. In fact, you are more than likely going to have less money than when you started because you probably won’t even make the $37 back that it costs to buy into this in the first place.

In this review of AliProfits System I’ll be going over and exposing a bunch of lies that we are told and what is really going on here.

Thinking about buying into this? You are going to want to think again… Trust me on this.

AliProfits System Review

The AliProfits System is a system for making money online through e-commerce that was created by a guy named Shawn. It all sounds amazingly simple and to be honest, way too good to be true.

Chances are that you probably received an email about some awesome new way to make money online, which had a link in it, and you clicked that link which then directed you to the video presentation. How do I know? Well, because that is how it usually works with scammy systems like this–just like Home Income Millionaire and ClixStarter (that I recently reviewed).

When I first landed on the video presentation if I was pretty much positive that it was a scam, but of course you can’t always judge a book by it’s cover, so I decided to do a little digging around–which just further backed up my initial opinion of it being a scam.

Sounds Like a Scam

Some of what we are told includes…

  • “You are one of the lucky few that has been selected to watch this special presentation”
  • With this system you can make you thousands of dollars every day “like clockwork”
  • This “legally siphons cash” from a $372 billion industry
  • “You are just a few clicks away from making $2,500 per day”
  • It is an autopilot system
  • It only requires 30 minutes of work a day
  • Only 20 more students are allowed into the system

Everything here leads me to believe that this is a scam. I have reviewed hundreds of scams on my website here and there are many common scam characteristics that AliProfits System has.

Overall it just sounds way too good to be true end as the saying goes, if something sounds too good to be true it probably is.

But not only does it sound like a scam, but it also looks like one–and I’ll show you some visible proof of this…

And Looks Like a Scam..

Do you remember the video testimonials from people claiming that they are making tons of money with this system?

For example, Fred supposedly quit his job and now has a bunch of time and financial freedom–making $5k – $6k per month with AliProfits System…fake testimonial

And then there was Alicia who supposedly made over $2,500 in her first week of using the system…

fake testimonial

Ya, well… Unfortunately none of these testimonials are real. They are completely fake and the people are just paid actors that have been hired by the creators of this system–obviously because the system is not any good and they couldn’t get any testimonials from real customers–because of course the real customers aren’t actually making any money from it.

Here is some proof that these people are just paid actors. As you can see below they are both freelancers that create spokesperson videos on the freelance market place called Fiverr…screenshotscreenshot

Note: While it is a bit unethical, I’m not here to argue the actions of these actors–I’m here to review the program.

Next up… the disclaimer

Take a look at this! (which can be found at the bottom of the website)…

disclaimer

It literally tells you word for word that “the typical purchaser does not make any money using this system”.

So what are we supposed to believe, the disclaimer or what we are told in the video presentation?

The answer is that you should always believe the disclaimer. Basically what is going on here is that people can say whatever they want to in video presentations and what not, as long as they state the truth in a disclaimer like this. So they can tell us all the BS and lies they want to with their sales pitch. This is how incredibly scammy programs like this are able to get away with what they do.

Lots of Red Flags

As if everything I went over above wasn’t already enought to show that this is more than likely a scam, there’s more!

One thing I noticed is that the spokesman says things that don’t even make sense–things that don’t add up. For example: he says that all of his students have been earning more than $500 a day.

Well this can’t be true because “Fred” claims to be making $5k – $6k per month, which would average out to a about $161 – $194 per day–not even close to $500 a day. And “Alicia” says she made $2,500 her first week, which is good but that doesn’t average out to $500 a day either.

Not only that, but who the heck is this “Shawn” guy anyhow?

He claims his name is Shawn J and he claims to make about $2,500 every single day from this system. BUT how can we be sure that this information is true?

The answer: We can’t!

I have reviewed so many scams that are promoted under fake names–so the name here might be completely made up, and even if it’s not we still don’t know anything about the guy.

There is no bit of information given that can be verified, no picture shown, nothing. We are just supposed to trust what he tells us–after knowing that half the stuff in the video presentation is a lie.

What Exactly Is The Aliprofits System?

Aliprofits

Unfortunately it’s not really what you are led to believe it is–which you would probably expect after reading this far into my review.

Fortunately it does teach you a legitimate way to make money online.

The focus is on ecommerce as you already know, but specifically on what is called “dropshipping” via AliExpress. Dropshipping is when you sell products online through your own ecommerce website but never actually keep inventory–instead, when someone purchases a product on your website you just have it shipped right from the manufacturer. It can be a great business model and I know people who make a heck of a lot of money doing this.

BUT, the AliProfits System is NOT what you think.

After watching the video presentation you are left with the idea that this is some sort of system that you can “plug into” and start profiting from–just by setting a few things up and then all of a sudden watching the money roll right in with only 30 minutes of work.

The reality is that Aliprofits System is just a guide that goes over how to setup a dropshipping business using AliExpress and having a Shopify website–and this is only one part of the equation. Getting targeted visitors to your website is a massive task. Without visitors you will make $0–and training on this is lacking.

The Cost

It starts off at just $37 but this is just the beginning of things. Once you buy in you will be hit with a series of upsells. Right when you thought you had everything you need–they shove some other products down your throat.

This is how cheap overhyped products usually work and I come across it all the time.

Of course you have no idea that there are going to be upsells when you buy in on the front-end product–but there are and they are always more expensive.

Conclusion – Is AliProfits System a Scam?

The AliProfits System is Pretty much a scam in my opinion, although you are provided with some value if you buy into it–just nothing like you would expect after watching the video presentation and you are sure to be highly disappointed.

All in all, this system is a massive let-down and I’m definitely not going to be recommending any of my readers to buy into it. There are plenty better options out there and in my opinion you would be much better off just doing your own research and finding all the free information on e-commerce and dropshipping that can be found on Google / YouTube.

And if you already did buy into it, don’t worry, luckily it is being sold through the Clickbetter platform and this means that you can get your money back within 60 days if you request a refund.

So anyways, I hope you enjoyed my review and found it helpful. If you want a personal recommendation of mine for making money online, I would highly suggest taking a look at this post on how I make a living working for myself online–in which I go over exactly what I do, how it all works and how others can get started doing the same.

Is ClixStarter a Scam? – Here Is Why You Should Avoid This Program

We are told that ClixStarter involves 3 billion people, uses more computing power than the NSA and also makes use of a time machine–but unfortunately most of what we are told is incredibly misleading.

Is ClixStarter a scam? Well, not entirely–but ya, pretty much–and in this review I’ll be going over why.

So don’t buy in yet–and if you did you are going to want to request a refund after you read this.

*Luckily you have 60 days to get a refund because this product is being sold through Clickbank.

ClixStarter Review

Okay, so let’s first start off with the sales pitch.

The idea is that Google gets tons of of people using it to search for information, about 40,000 searches every second–which the spokeswoman describes as “Google gives out 40,000 free money tokens every second”–because free traffic coming from Google can be monetized if you have a website that is getting that free traffic.

*You can make money with free traffic in many ways, such as by placing ads on your site, affiliate marketing, etc.

She claims that it has been very competitive, “until now” because her and a friend have created some sort of “time machine” that is going to allow you to create Web pages about search-terms that no one else has created yet.–which means there will be no competition and you will easily rank high in Google.

screenshot

Sounds good–but of course this isn’t nearly as good as it seems.

Why This Is NOT Going To Work Out As You Are Told

#1 – Other People Are Doing It 

First off, there are plenty of other people out there that are already doing this. This is not rocket science and there are plenty of other people trying to get their websites ranked in Google for search-terms that hopefully have a lot of searches in the future.

For example, there are tons of websites out there where people write articles about the new iPhone that is coming out, the upcoming TV series episode, and all sorts of things. It is always easiest to get your website ranked in Google and get traffic when you are one of the first ones to publish an article targeting a specific keyword, so naturally everyone tries to be the first.

And because there are many people already doing this it makes getting your website ranked in Google high enough to get a lot of search traffic a lot harder.

#2 – Predicting Future Traffic Is NOT Easy

Sure, if the next iPhone is coming out in the coming months then there is obviously going to be a lot of search traffic from people looking for more information on it. And if there is an election coming up then it would be easy to predict that there are going to be many searches related to the election happening soon.

But while we have a general idea of what information people might be searching for, there are a lot of unknowns and accurately predicting what exactly people will be searching for is much more difficult than it may seem.

Oh ya–but of course the lady claims that she and a friend have created a “time machine” that is going to do this for us… right..y

#3 – Not All Traffic = Good Money

What you definitely need to know is that not all Google traffic equals good money. She acts as if you will just be able to “reel in” money every single day like it’s nothing and even shows stacks of cash in the video presentation…

screenshot

But in reality things don’t work this way.

For example: If you are able to get your website ranked in Google for the search term “iPhone X Review” then you are going to be able to make a lot of money from the traffic coming in through this search term, because many of the people coming to your website are likely interested in making a purchase, which is the reason they are reading a review about the new phone in the first place.

However, If you get ranked under a search term like “funny dog barks at mailman”–this search term doesn’t have near the potential to make you money because the people searching for this keyword are just going to be interested in watching a funny video, not purchasing anything.

You can always make some money with ads via Google AdSense and what not, but there can be a massive difference in earning potential depending on what search term you are ranked for.

The “Time Machine” You Get Access to Isn’t Really a Time Machine

The spokeswoman talks about the software she created being able to predict the searches people will be typing into Google and says it’s as valuable as being able to predict lottery numbers, movements in the stock market, etc–but of course this is not even close to being true.

The “time machine” tool that you get access to if you buy into this searches for 3 types of keywords…

  1. Keywords for new products that are launching
  2. Keywords for news stories
  3. Keywords for viral stories on social media

It is not actually a time machine at all and really isn’t all that great. You can find keywords in all of these categories without any sort of “time machine” tool like this and people that are experienced in particular niches are likely going to be much better at targeting future keywords than you are with the help of this tool.

Another Massive Problem With This

So first there is the tool just mentioned that finds you keywords. Next up you will get access to a software that generates you a web page around the different keywords you want to rank for. Basically what it does is posts content from other websites, spins it, and then publishes it as your own content on your own web page.

This sounds good in theory, but unfortunately content spinning like this does not work out well, not nearly as well as it used to. The problem is that computer generated content, especially from low-quality softwares like what you get here, often create content that is confusing and it does not make much sense. Not only that, but Google is well aware of content spinning software like this and is a lot smarter than the crappy software you get access to. Google doesn’t like spun content because it lacks value and has low readability, so it doesn’t rank it well.

This type of thing used to work years ago but those days are long passed.

Lots of Red Flags

Besides the fact that the spokeswoman lures people in by making this opportunity sound like the greatest and easiest way to make money ever, by simply earning “Google money tokens” using the “time machine” she created–another major red flag is the fact that…

We Have No Idea Who Is Behind This!

Who is the spokeswoman? We have no idea.

Likely the person that is actually speaking in the video has nothing to do with this system / program. She is more than likely just someone who got paid to read off a script.

So we are supposed to buy into a program that allows us to earn free “Google money tokens” with the use of a “time machine” and we have no idea who the person behind it really is–doesn’t exactly sound like a very good program to get involved with.

Conclusion – Avoid

One thing that I haven’t mentioned yet is that I actually make a living ranking websites in Google and monetizing website traffic in a variety of different ways–so I know how it all works–and I know that this type of program is simply not going to work out.

The bottom line is that there is no way around hard work. If you ever come across a system like ClixStarter here that sounds a little bit too good to be true, it likely is. Luckily you didn’t fall for this scammy system, so good for you. But unfortunately a lot of people are going to be buying into this and that is only going to lead to disappointment once they find out it doesn’t work and was a waste of money.

If you have an interest in creating small websites that get free traffic from Google and making money from this the right way, then I would highly suggest taking a look at how I make a living online–where how can I ever exactly what I do, how it all works and how beginners can get started.

Is “Fluorescent Sand” a Scam or Amazing Investment Opportunity? [Review]

The whole “Fluorescent Sand” teaser by Ian King is a bit over-the-top and get’s down-right confusing. If you watched the video presentation or read the written version, you probably have quite a few questions.

Is “Fluorescent Sand” a scam investment opportunity? Is this the incredible bargain that he claims it to be? What $5 company is he talking about that we can invest in for double, triple, and even quadruple digit gains??

In this short review I’ll be telling you what you need, and want, to know. I won’t be beating around the bush–I’ll be going over what the heck this investment opportunity is, why it’s probably not quite as good as Ian King tells us, the cost of what he’s trying to sell us and more.

First let’s talk a bit more about the sales pitch and what we are told..

According to Mr King, “Fluorescent Sand” is the driving force behind one of the biggest breakthroughs of our time.

He claims that Scientific American says “it’s about to change your life” and MIT Technology Review has been quoted as saying “it’s going to blow you away”–and even the past White House Advisor on science and technology, Susan Crawford, said that it is as “central to the next phase of human existence as electricity was a hundred years ago”.

But as I will go over–these people aren’t actually talking about “Fluorescent Sand”. This is just a term that Ian King made-up to lure people in and make this opportunity sound more unusual and unheard of.

It’s all about 5G and we are told that the 5G revolution is being made possible thanks to this sand–which “looks and feels exactly like sand on a beach”.

Stephen Mollenkopf, the CEO of Qualcomm, estimates that up to $12 trillion in revenue will be brought in from this development.

And most important of all–there is a company at the forefront of this revolution that can be bought at $5 a share, which is your chance to strike it rich–which he claims is the best opportunity in the stock market right now.

What Is Fluorescent Sand?

He talks about how Sir Charles Kao, a physicist, found out how to transform sand into pure glass–and how it can be made into long skinny strands that can transmit lasers carrying data.

After far too much time, he finally get’s to the point and tells us that he is talking about fiber optics here.

But what’s so special about fiber optics right now? I mean, this technology has been around since the 1950’s and has been used in the US for decades.

Well… the truth is that, while it has been being used, much of it’s potential is still on the table. Right now the US has been “quietly” building a network of fiber optic cables across all 50 states. Only a very small portion of these cables are actually in use and the unused strands are being bought by large companies such as Microsoft, Verizon and Amazon.

They are buying these unused fiber optic cables in anticipation of the 5G rollout, which is going to be coming soon.

The Company He Wants Us To Invest In

As you already know, there is this one “$5 company” that is going to be critical to bringing the 5G fiber optics revolution to life–or at least this is what we are told.

He hints that “this firm makes the device that links you to the fiber optics and to the wireless 5G networks”–and this device is the size of a thermostat that can be placed anywhere in your home.

So what the heck is this device that he is hinting at and what company are we talking about investing in here–to possibly make quadruple digit gains???

According to StockGumshoe, the company that is being teased here is likely Inseego, which is an equipment maker that manufactures hotspots–the things that will be tapping into the 5G network and turning those signals into household WIFI. Inseego matches up with all the little hints that Mr King gives us, and is close to the $5/share range.

But as far as why this particular company is the “best bargain” out there and is going to suck up much of the $12 trillion in revenue that is predicted to come from this 5G rollout–well, who knows..

Inseego is one of many equipment producers and doesn’t seem to have any special angle for the upcoming 5G rollout. They are said to have the first contract to produce 5G hotspot devices for Verizon, but other big names like Netgear are competition–and Netgear is said to have the first contract for AT&T.

What’s Really Going On Here

The truth is that the whole “fluorescent sand” shenanigans is a far-fetched sales pitch to lure people in so that Mr Ian King can “give us” a copy of his new book ‘The $5 Stock Leading the 5G Revolution”.

No… But really… The real point here is to get people to subscribe to his new financial newsletter service called Automatic Fortunes. You can get a copy of his new book for “free”, but you have to pay to subscribe to his members subscription service first.

Automatic Fortunes Membership

What you get when you subscribe to this subscription service includes…

  • Access to model portfolio
    • Here you will be able to see exactly what Ian King is investing in. Not only will you see the the $5 company he’s been talking about, but you will also see all the other stocks he has on his buy list.
  • Weekly Alerts and updates
    • You will be updated weekly on what’s going on in the market so that you know where things stand. Additionally, if anything happens in the market that requires your attention, you will be alerted.
  • 12 monthly newsletters
    • This is the core of what you get with a membership. The monthly newsletters are in-depth reports where he analyzes a new opportunity and gives all the details. Not only does this give you good information, but you can also see how he analyzes opportunities to become better at recognizing potentially good investments yourself.
  • Member’s area access
    • You will get access to all this information in the member’s area access that you get to the website

Obviously the sales tactics being used here are a little sneaky. I mean, we watched that ridiculously long video presentation about “fluourescent sand” to strike it rich with some incredible opportunity… but of course we have to pay to find out what this opportunity is (well, you normally would have to, but I just told you what the opportunity probably is).

Who Is Ian King?

After all the hoopla and mumbo jumbo being thrown at us, it’s completely normal to wonder if this all might be one big scam–and wonder if Ian King is really who he says he is.

Surprisingly he actually is. You might expect a smooth talking salesman (as he appears in the video presentation) to lie about himself and his credentials, but this guy is the real deal. It is true that he started out at Salomon Brothers, worked for Citigroup as an analyst and became head trader for a hedge fund–and he has been on Fox Business, writes on Investopedia, etc.

He knows what he is doing.

Banyan Hill Publishing – Not The Best Reputation

Ian King’s Automatic Fortunes newsletter is published by the Banyan Hill Publishing company, which publishes a bunch of different financial newsletters–and unfortunately doesn’t have the best reputation.

First off, they are not accredited with the BBB and have a fair number of complaints + low customer reviews.

Banyan Hill Publishing BBB rating

The fact that it is not BBB accredited doesn’t really matter much to me, but the high amounts of complaints about this company and their publications is a problem.

There are a fair number of complaints from people getting subscribed to newsletters that they didn’t really know they were getting subscribed to (such as that shown below). Banyan Hill seems to have somewhat of a sneaky way of going about luring people into their various financial newsletter subscription services.

screenshot

Reviews like that below are all too common…

screenshot

There are also quite a bit of complaints from people who are sick and tired of getting bombarded with promotional emails from this company. Apparently once you give them your email address for any reason, you will be having your inbox filled with promotions for their different newsletters. So you might want to use an email that isn’t your main email–you could always set up a another free gmail account for free.

A History of Misleading Sales Tactics

I first came across Banyan Hill after being lured into a promotion for what they called “Freedom Checks“. Basically what they were claiming in the sales pitch was that American citizens could add their name to some list and start collecting checks–which was incredibly misleading and deceptive.

The truth was that they were trying to get people to buy into a different newsletter subscription and the “freedom checks” were actually dividend checks that people could potentially collect if they would follow the investment advice of the newsletter service and invest in certain companies–NOT AT ALL WHAT YOU WOULD EXPECT.

There was another deceptive sales pitch for what they called “Kennedy Accounts” which was similar in a lot of ways. I also reviewed this opportunity and have received a plethora of positive comments from people thanking me for saving them from the ridiculous scammy marketing tactics going on here.

Cost

The cost of a membership depends on what subscription you purchase. They have 3 different subscriptions available…

  • Premium Subscription – $79
  • Deluxe Subscription – $129
  • Standard Subscription – $47

With the Standard Subscription you only get access to the material digitally and with the other 2 more expensive subscriptions you get digital access as well as printouts mailed to you, along with some bonuses.

*Note: These subscriptions autorenew every year! So be careful.

Scam or Not?

So is this whole “fluorescent sand” thing a scam?

I guess this depends on how you look at it. The truth is that the sales pitch for striking it rich by investing in “fluorescent sand” is one heck of far-fetched idea–I mean I guess you could say you are investing in “fluorescent sand” but it is in a very indirect way… and just doesn’t make for a very honest sales pitch.

The truth also is that with this very misleading salespitch people such as you and I are being lured into subscribing to Ian King’s financial newsletter service–which costs money.

BUT… the truth ALSO is that this does provide value and Mr King does have the credentials to justify such a service–and you could make money from it.

So what do you think?

I’m not a fan of the marketing material behind this whole thing, but that is just the way Banyan Hill likes to do things, which is why they get a lot of people filing complaints with the BBB and writing very negative reviews all over the internet.

Conclusion

Okay, so let’s do a quick recap here because this is all pretty confusing.

  • “Fluorescent Sand” is just a far-fetched sales pitch and what he is really talking about here is fiber optics
  • He claims that there is $12 trillion profit potential coming from the 5G revolution, which will be made possible from fiber optics
  • The $5 company that is “at the forefront of this revolution” is likely Inseego
  • This opportunity doesn’t seem to be any better than some others out there–because Inseego does have competition
  • The real point of the sales pitch is to get people to subscribe to his newsletter, which is published by the Banyan Hill company, which is well known for absolutely ridiculously misleading marketing tactics and gets quite a few complaints about this

I’m not going to be telling any of my readers what choice to make. If you want to subscribe to Ian King’s Automatic Fortunes newsletter than that is up to you. The point of this review was to cut through all the BS and help you see what you are really looking at here.

I hope you enjoyed this review and found it helpful. What do you think about this “Fluorescent Sand”? Feel free to leave any comments or questions below 🙂

Home Income Millionaire – Scam That You Will NOT Make $5,000 This Week With

Home Income Millionaire is a system that anyone can supposedly make really easy money with, and we are even told that “you will make your first $5,000 this week” and that we’re going to become millionaires.

But is it possible that Home Income Millionaire is a scam we should be avoiding? Or is this really the magical money generating system we are told it is? 

When it comes to online money making systems you have to be really careful. It’s hard to know what you are getting involved with when you buy into things on the internet–and this is where I come in. I’ve been exposing online scams for years now and unfortunately this “Home Income Millionaire” system looks an aweful lot like one right off the bat.

Thinking about buying into this system? I’d strongly recomment NOT doing so–you will see why.

Home Income Millionaire Review

Home Income Millionaire (found at homeincomemillionaire.com) was supposedly created by some guy named “Mark” who is kind enought to let other people use it to make “truckloads” of money. He literally says that we will be “making money by the truckload” and that we “won’t even lift a finger because other people will do the work for you”.

But it doesn’t end there… Not yet.

He also claims that it will only take a few minutes of work per day! Are you serious??!!

And then he goes on to talke about how we will be able to buy the house of your dreams, buy sports cars and travel the world.

Recap:

  • People are “making money by the truckload”
  • “You’re about to become a millionaire”
  • You “won’t even lift a finger because other people will do the work for you”
  • It will only take a few minutes each day
  • You will make your first $5,000 by this week

Sounds incredible but obviously this sounds way too good to be true.

I mean, come on now–even if this system really could bring money in automatically by the “truckload”, why would he be sharing it with us? I know he leads us to believe that we have been handpicked because we are the perfect match and what not–but this is a bunch of BS.

The truth is he knows nothing about you and I. The truth is that you probably got an email or something along these lines that talked about some revolutionary new way to make money online and you clicked this link–along with hundreds of others.

The truth is that this is a big fat scam and there are a lot of lies being told by this “Mark” guy just to get you to buy into it–so that he (of the real creator) can make money off of you. 

A Video Presentation Filled With Lies..

Nearly half of the video presentation is just a bunch of fluff and lies–a bunch of BS.

Within a minute of starting the video there was this guy (pictured below) claiming that he has made more cash than he could have ever imagined with this system–HOWEVER, this testimonial is a complete fake!

testimonial

How do I know this?

Well, I actually knew it as soon as I saw the video because I have seen this same guy before multiple times in other testimonial videos. The reason is because he is a paid actor that is available for hire on the freelance marketplace called Fiverr…
fiverr account

The same goes for all the other testimonial videos that are displayed during the video presentation, such as this guy who claims to have made over $37,000 in a week…

fake testimonial
Just About Every Red-Flag In The Book

When I review potential scams I usually look for any reason that they might be legitimate, but unfortunately pretty much everything I see with Home Income Millionaire just makes it look more and more like a scam. 

Here are a few of the red flags that caught my attention…

False Scarcity

When I started writing this review it was telling me that “Hurry! The Final 11 Spots Remain”–then the number went down to 8. HOWEVER, I took a break for a couple of hours and when I came back to finish this review I refreshed the page and it was telling me that there was 11 spots remaining again, and the number went back down to 8 just as it did the first time. 

This is nothing more than false scarcity and it is a very common scammy marketing tactic that is used to try to get people to buy in as fast as possible.

Ridiculous Income Claims “Without Lifting a Finger”

Of course there are all of the ridiculous income claims, such as how the guy tells us we are going to be able to make $5,000 in the first week–and of course we are told that we can make these large amounts of money without even lifting a finger.

When something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. This is a great rule of thumb to live by.

No Idea Who This “Mark” Guy Is

The creator’s name is supposedly Mark, but other than that we know nothing about this guy. My guess is that Mark is probably just a made-up name used to promote this deceptive scam. We are given no photos, nothing–just some long backstory that could easily have been made up as well.

No Mention of How You Will Make Money

And possibly the biggest red flag of all is the fact that the entire video presentation gives us no real idea of how exactly this system is going to be making us money. There’s a bunch of talk about how it is going to make super easy money without the need for us to do any real work, but all the information provided is very vague and leaves us wondering what the heck it’s all about.

This is very common with online scams. They provide you a bunch of fluff and overhyped information–then you have to actually buy in before finding out what you bought into.

Conclusion – Scam You Should Avoid

These days I’m pretty careful with what I call a scam or not. If I think something is a scam but I don’t have that much proof, I usually will not specifically call it such. HOWEVER, this system is definitely one of the most obvious scams I have ever come across, so even though I have not bought into this and lost money, I am going to be calling it a scam.

If someone can prove to me that it is not a scam, I will gladly change my opinion in this review, but until then it is a scam in my book.

There is no super easy way to make money online that only takes a few minutes each day. Sure, there are some people who have been working online for years and are now able to work very little and make a lot of money, but these people are far from being beginners. You can’t expect to start out and make “truckloads” of money.

Making money online takes work, real work. If there was some magical online money machine then I would be all over it, and I would have all my family and friends involved–but there isn’t.

If you are looking for a proven and legitimate way to make money online, one that I have personal experience with, then I would highly suggest taking a look at how I make a living working online for myself, which It’s something that I have been doing since 2015.

AdFlippers Review – Scam Opportunity or Easy Money Online?

AdFlippers.com is supposedly a website that uses the same money making method that Facebook and Google use to make boatloads of money. The spokesperson says that it is the easiest money you’ve ever dreamed about, but is it really?

Or is AdFlippers a scam that you will just end up losing money with?

Unfortunately the the latter seems to be the truth–which is that AdFlippers is a scam.

What you shouldn’t expect is to make money within minutes like you are led to believe. Instead, what you should expect is to lose at least $250 (minimum investment), and you will see why I’m saying this in this quick review…

AdFlippers Review

AdFlippers is a website that supposedly automates the process of flipping ads and makes it super easy for anyone to make money online.

As far as we are told, all you have to do is sign up, choose which ads you want to use for your campaign and that’s it–then supposedly money just flows into your account. 

However, I’m sure that I’m not the only person who was suspicious after landing on the website. After all, you are reading my review right now and this probably means that you have that gut feeling that this is more than likely a scam as well.

If you have ever been in my website before then you know I routinely expose online scams. And, this particular opportunity is riddled with common red flags that I often see with other scams.

Lots of Red-Flags

Let’s start out from the beginning. There are probably various ways to be lured into the AdFlippers.com website, but the way it happen for me was after coming across a website that had an article about how some former teacher is now earning $40,000 a month. The website appeared to be some sort of News website at first glance, but the truth is that it is a complete fake. It might look professional and all, and it may look like there is a lot going on, but really there is nothing to it. It is a one-page fake News website set up for the sole purpose of luring people into online scams like this.

When I was on the website I tried clicking around on the different menu tabs and they all directed me to the online scam being promoted here.

fake news website

Another big red flag is that the images of the “top earners” are also completely fake. If you watched the video presentation for AdFlippers then this section would have been located below the video…fake images

After doing a simple reverse Google image search I was able to find that “Sherri Myers” (the first person listed) is more then likely completely made up. Her photo is used on various websites online (shown below), and although I was not able to find the source of this image, it is more than likely a stock photo that anyone can purchase and use as they wish online, or a free online photo. One thing is for sure–this is definitely NOT “Sherri Myers”.

screenshot

And next up we have this part of the webite…

screenshot

Here what we are told here is that…

  • There are 286 people viewing the page at the time of my review
  • This opportunity has been featured on CNN Money and BBC News
  • and that there are only 4 spots left

HOWEVER, more than likely none of this is true. 

I know for sure that this opportunity definitely has not been featured on CNN Money nor has it been on BBC News, because you can easily go to either of these websites and search for “AdFlippers”, which will bring up no relevant information–and I also know that there were definitely not “4 spots left” because when I was on the website at one point it was telling me there was only “1 spot left”, and then for some unexplained reason the number went up to “3 spots left”, and then up to 4, which makes absolutely no sense.

And judging by the fact that both of these claims are complete lies, I would also guess that the number of people that it tells you are on the website is also a lie–and is something I often see with scams online.

The last red flag that I want to go over is this warning sign that was at the top of the website, which claimed that “due to extremely high media demand, we will close registration as of Wednesday, June 5 – 2019”

screenshot

Now it is probably already past June 5th at the time you are reading this and you probably get the same warning when you go to the website, which simply tells you that registration is closing on whatever day it is that you are visiting the website. This is known as false scarcity and is yet another very scammy marketing tactic to try to get people to buy in to scam programs as soon as possible.

How This System Supposedly Makes You Money

It’s all about ad flipping, which the guy claims is like digital real estate. He claims that all you have to do is choose advertisements you like and then watch them generate money–day in and day out like clockwork.

Sounds simple enough, yet it also sounds like a big fat scam.

What isn’t made all that clear in the video presentation is that you will have to make a minimum deposit of $250 in order to get started. What you will supposedly be doing is investing money in ads, and if these ads perform well then you make money from your investment.

But how can you possibly be guaranteed to make money by simply choosing ads?

I mean, it makes some sense if you choose good ads that run good profit, but what if you don’t? I’ve Been involved in online marketing and advertising since 2015 and I know that there is definitely such thing as a “bad” ad, which turns out to be a dud that just ends up losing you money (if you are doing paid advertising). So what if you choose an ad that doesn’t perform well?

This all sounds very scammy because I know very well that there is never a guarantee you will make money with any sort of program / system online.

Besides that–no reputable company is going to allow their ads to be bought and sold (“flipped”) on some website like this.

Similar to Old Scams

And yet another major red flag is the fact that this whole “ad flipping” opportunity seems to be one of the common online scam promotions nowadays.

There has been link posting, bitcoin trading, marijuana stock trading, etc… and now “ad flipping” is a common scam that many different systems are based around, such as Daily Banner Profits and Free Ad Cash System, both of which are scams and both of which I have exposed in the past.

Conclusion – Scam or Not?

The truth is that I have not joined this system and tried it out for myself, but what I can say is that I’m about 99% sure that it is a scam–and this is coming from someone who, as I said, exposes scams on a regular basis.

When I’m very suspicious of a system / program like this, when doing my review I look around for any reason that it might be legitimate, but unfortunately here everything I see just makes it look more and more like a scam.

As mentioned, if you do join this opportunity you will have to invest a minimum of $250–and if you do make this investment you will likely never see that money again, nor any profits from it. There are so many scams like this out there that work the same way and lots of people that fall victims to these nasty websites.

Join if you want to, but I certainly am not going to be recommending it to any of my readers. If you are looking for a legitimate and proven way to make money online, then I highly suggest taking a look at how I make a living working online–in which I get over exactly what I do, how it all works and how others can get started doing the same.

The Midas Legacy Review – Scam Alert!

When I first came across The Midas Legacy it seemed like it was going to be a scam for sure. I’ve reviewed hundreds of scams online and this fit the description pretty good at first glance. However, after looking into it further things got more confusing for me. First it seemed like a scam, then it didn’t really, but overall it is definitely not something I’d recommend buying into.

Confusing right? I know.

In this review I’ll be guiding you through the mess of confusion that they throw at us so that you can see what The Midas Legacy really is.

There are probably many different funnels to get people to buy into this whole thing, but sucking people in via email seems to be at the top of the list. One email that has been going around says that you can “add over $800 to your [bank] account in the next 7 minutes”— which sounds awesome and all but it also sounds like a big fat scam.

You more than likely are reading my review right now because this just sounds too good to be true. And as the old saying goes… if something sounds too good to be true then it probably is. This simple saying can save your butt more times than not when it comes to scams online.

The Ridiculous Sales Pitch

The story, as “Jim Samson” claims, is that they have uncovered these secret “bank codes” that are what is going to be able to make you $800 in the next 7 mintues–and apparently all you have to do is put these codes into your computer and that is about it… then you make money.

The guy talks about how the greedy elitists and banks rip off all of us normal folk and that this new money making secret that he has uncovered is a way to get back–to stick it to the man.

He calls this system for making money that he has discovered a “legal loophole” and even a “money machine”.

And of course he acts like you are super lucky to have gotten the invitation to be a part of this all. Apparently there are limited offers for people to get in on this and it is very secretive… well, that is what he tells us anyhow. But the truth is that this is not secreative at all and he is blasting emails out to probably thousands of people to get in on his system–so that he can make money off of us all.

*Note: This is just one of the sales pitches that I came across. There might be others suckering people in from totally different angles.

But anyways… enough about the sales pitch. It obviously sounds like a scam when you first come across it, but of course you can’t always judge a book by its cover–which is why I decided to dig a little deeper and see what this Midas Legacy is all about.

The Midas Legacy Review

When you actually go to the main site for The Midas Legacy (themidaslegacy.com) you might actually be surprised. Why? Well, because the website isn’t riddled with the scammy claims and of being able to earn tons of easy money or anything like that. 

From first glance at the main site things look, well, surprisingly legitimate.

The company behind it all is called TML Group, LLC and they are listed as having their physical office at 1220 Winter Garden Vineland Rd. Suite 108 Winter Garden FL 34787 USA.

On the website they claim to have made the Inc 5000 list in 2017 for being one of the fastest growing small companies of the year. The sceptic that I am, I looked into this to see if it is really true and to my surprise it is. They were ranked # 1624 in 2017 by Inc 5000 with a growth of 243% and a revenue of $2.7 million…screenshot

Products/Services

Money Mentor – This is a financial newsletter that you can sign up to receive every month. Members are provided with stock recommendations, reports, alerts and training.

Stock Code Breaker – This is a 10 part monthly course that teaches people how to trade stocks. Members learn how to trade profitably no matter what the market is looking like (bull or bear). In the description we are told that “each stock price pattern has a kind of code in it, and this will give you the key to unlock it”. (sounds a bit familiar!)

Stock Raider – This is another 10 part monthly course that supposedly exposes the “dark side” of Wall Street. Members learn how they can “turn the tables” using strategies that lead to profit as the end result. This course starts off assuming that members don’t know a thing about trading stocks, so it is said to be a good place to start out.

Who Is Jim Samson? Does This Guy Even Exist?

On the website Jim Samson is stated as being a bestselling author, as having been quoted in the International Business Times, as having called the financial bubble in 2006 and more…Jim SamsonBut who is he really?

Well, there is very limited information on the guy and to be honest I was starting to think he might be a fictitious character made up just to promote this opportunity–as I’ve seen plenty of times before with other online scams–and all the other articles online saying that this is a scam and that this guy might not exist certainly didn’t help.

HOWEVER, I came across a Youtube video where he actually makes an appearance. So he does appear to be real–can’t really argue against this anymore…

Looks More Legit, But Some Things Still Don’t Quite Add Up

While things do look more legitimate, there are still some, red-flags that I see and things that just don’t make much sense to me–which still lead me to believe that this could be a scam.

For example, at the bottom of the website they say “as quoted in: International Business Times”, “As seen in: The New York Times” and so on, yet I have looked on these other websites and have found no mention of The Midas Legacy or Jim Samson.screenshot

So is this all made up?

Potentially I think, but I’m not completely sure. It’s not like I haven’t seen it 100 times before too. Online scams often claim to have been featured on the news and such because it adds credibility to their name–although it is a complete lie.

Complaints

When you search around for complaints about The Midas Legacy you won’t find all that much that aren’t about the ridiculous sales pitch.

Most people are complaining about the incredibly deceptive marketing tactics being used to promote their products/services. You are led to believe that you are going to be able to make some guaranteed money pretty much instantly when the reality is much different–and not nearly as great–which just leads to disappointment.

There are a few complaints with the BBB about this, such as this…

BBB complaints

Why can’t they just market their products/services in an honest and straighforward way? I don’t know, but this reminds me a lot of the “freedom checks” and “congressional checks” opportunities that I exposed in the past as being very misleading investment opportunities.

There are also some complaints from people claiming that they have been overcharged or charged money when they didn’t know they would be, but these are few and don’t seem to be anything to worry about.

Scam or Not?

While there are a lot of red-flags in the marketing material that is out there for The Midas Legacy, such as for “the midas legacy bank codes” and such–and while the information given is often very misleading and lures people to buy into their products/services without really knowing what they are getting into, it is hard to say whether or not this should be called a scam.

What do you think? (comment below)

They do seem to be a legitimate company that provides a legitimate service. The problem is mostly coming from the marketing material and how they lure people in.

Conclusion

There are still a lot of unknowns when it comes to this company and the products/service that they offer. Much of what they say in their marketing material seems to be untrue or at least misleading to some extent, which is the reason I was suspicious that this might be a scam in the first place.

All in all I haven’t come to a solid conclusion on this place due to the lack of information, lack of transparency, etc. And because of this I am not going to be recommending it to my readers.

Update: There is a news article warning people about this “get rich quick scheme” that I found–and yes they do call it a get rich quick scheme.

But you can do as you wish. That said, if you are looking to make money investing there are certainly better and more honest, straightforward and legitimate services out there than this.

So anyways–I hope you enjoyed this review and found it helpful. If you are looking to make money online be sure to check out how I make a living working for myself–or alternatively you can check out my top picks for making money from home

Is Smart Profit App a Scam by Robert Fisher? – Pretty Much, Ya

The Smart Cash App by Robert Fisher is not something that I would recommend buying into, and in this review you will see why. Yes, Robert Fisher tells us that we will be able to make up to $1,595 per day with this “app”, which he basically describes as being an automated system that does all the work for us, but what he tells us is very far from the truth.

Is Smart Cash App A scam? Well, you can decide for yourself after reading this review–but yeah, pretty much. While there is some value provided with what you get if you buy into it, it is not even close to being the amazing system that he leads you to believe it is.

You’ll see what I mean…

Smart Profit App Review

Smart Cash App seemed like a scam the second I landed on the website, smartprofitapp.com. It was supposedly created by this “Robert Fisher” guy, but who knows if that is actually his real name. More than likely the person speaking in the video presentation is a paid spokesperson–and Mr. Robert Fisher is just a fictitious character that was made up to promote this silly system.

If you have ever been on my website before then you know that I regularly expose scams online. I’ve become very familiar with the many different scammy marketing tactics that are commonly used, and as I was watching the video presentation for Smart Cash App my scam sensors were going off like crazy–code red scam alert.

Lots of Red Flags

Of course, just like every other online money making scam out there, “you’ve been personally invited” and he believes you are the perfect candidate.

And–the video presentation is a “private video presentation” that is “highly confidential”.

All of this is a complete lie. First off, you have not been personally invited. You probably received some spammy looking email about some new way to make money online and you decided to click the link in it. But you aren’t the only one–far from it–there more than likely tens of thousands of other people who received that same email.

The hhole thing about it being highly confidential and a private video was a complete lie as well. Anyone can go to the website and watch the video if they want to. It is not private by any means.

And then–just on que–“Robert” lures us into the depths of the video by leading us to believe it is only going to be 3 minutes and 35 seconds long–when in reality the video presentation was over 15 minutes.

And you guessed it, you “will start making money today” and all you have to do is copy a simple step-by-step system…

How much money can you make?

A heck of a lot of course–according to Mr. Robert up to $1,595 per day…

This has pretty much every red flag in the book and reminds me a lot of other scams I’ve exposed, like Website ATM–and good on you to do a little extra research and come across my review here. You absolutely do not get what you’re expecting to get based on what you were told in the video.

What You Get – NOT What You Were Expecting

Anyone would expect to get some “done for you” system that you can just “plug into” and start profiting from–after all, that is what we are led to believe–BUT this is not what you get at all. Instead, you get access to a training program that takes a heck of a lot of work on your part and certainly does not guarantee success.

The focus of the training is on…

  • Affiliate marketing with Amazon
  • CPA marketing
  • Instagram, Youtube, Facebook and Snapchat marketing

Affiliate marketing is at its core, and is a great way to make money online (it’s actually how I make a living working online for myself), but this program just provides mostly general information and is nothing special by any means.

While a price of $37 really isn’t too bad, the problem is that the incredibly misleading marketing material leads us to believe that we are buying into some newly found gold mine of online money that requires almost no work.

What Is Affiliate Marketing?

It is an online business model where you simply promote products for companies online and earn commissions when you helped make sales. It is particularly attractive to beginners because all you do is promote products, there’s no need to have your own product, no need for dealing with payment processing, Etc.

If you are looking for a training program to learn affiliate marketing that is actually good in proven, then I would highly suggest taking you look at Wealthy Affiliate.

Cost + Upsells

The reason they are selling it for only $37 is because they have hopes they can get you to buy into the upsells, which include the following…

  • Upsell #1 – $197 for Smart Profit App 2.0
  • Upsell #2 – $177 for Smart Profit Pro
  • Upsell #3 – $97 for Smart Profit Social

All of these upsells are pushed on you as if they are going to be able to make you more and more money–and while it may be true to some extent I would not recommend buying into them.

Conclusion – Scam or Not?

Yes, Smart Cash App does provide you with some real training for making money online via affiliate marketing, and Yes, I suppose it is possible to actually make money after going through this training–HOWEVER, who would want to purchase a program from some guy that probably doesn’t even exist, a program that is surely going to disappoint anyone who bought into the sales hype, a program that mostly provides general information that could be found for free pretty easily online, and so on.

Overall this is a very scammy program that I certainly am not going to be recommending to any of my readers–there are far better choices out there. Whether or not you want to call it a scam is up to you.

My Work for Life – Scam or Earn Easy Money? [Avoid]

My Work for Life (at myworkforlife.com) is a website that claims you can easily earn $500 per week in your spare time. They say that you only need 1 hour per day to be able to make this much, and that some of their highest paid members are making $200 a day.

But is this too good to be true? Is this just another scam that is going to be a waste of your time?

As you can tell by the title of this post (in which I say to “avoid!”)–yes this is a scam and it is going to be a waste of your time if you join.

My Work for Life Review

One of the first things that stood out to me when coming across this site was its overall poor quality. It looks like a website that could have been thrown together over a weekend easily and doesn’t seem very professional–not something I would really want to get involved with because it doesn’t seem like a place you would be able to make an easy $500 per week with.

It claims to be “your best place to earn money online” but the way things are looking this seems like it could very well be the opposite.

Also, it obviously has been created by someone who speaks English as a second, third, or maybe even 10th language–much of what you are told doesn’t really make much sense, such as “we has been around since years and has over thousands members wordwide”–ya–I doubt it.

But anyways, it all sounds so simple. According to the website, all you have to do is…

  1. Setup account
  2. “Instant approve” – their words not mine (bad English)
  3. Work little
  4. Get paid

Sounds easy enough, does it not?

How You Supposedly Make Money

As mentioned, the website looks like something that could have been thrown together over the course of a weekend. There’s not much information on anything, but if you go to the FAQ page they explain things a bit better.

At first all you know is that you will be completing some sort of “tasks” in order to make money, but on the FAQ page they make it very clear that what you will be doing to earn money is referring other people to join the website. They don’t tell you how much money you will make per referral, but this is the only way described to make money.

And of course they make it all sound so simple–all you have to do is post your referral link on forums, Facebook, Twitter, Etc and you are going to be able to make an extra $500 per week–ya right!

Getting other people to join a website like this is not nearly as easy as it may seem. Other people are going to be suspicious, just as you are now. And besides this, although posting links on social media is completely free, it is going to be a terribly ineffective way to get referrals unless you have previous online marketing experience.

What Happens When You Join..

After joining you will be able to log into your account and access the job dashboard, which is about as plain and boring as you can possibly imagine. Basically what it consists of is your referral link like this…screenshotAnd here it does tell you how much you’ll be making, which is supposedly $5 to $10 just for getting someone to click on your link!

Yes, you heard me right, just for getting someone to click on your link.

The people that you refer to the website don’t actually have to join according to the information provided here, they just have to click your link.

You Need $300 to Cash Out!

I also found that you’re going to need $300 in order to cash out.

That is absolutely ridiculous. If you look at websites like Swagbucks, Inbox Dollars, and others that will pay you to complete simple tasks as well as to refer friends to join, they usually have the threshold that you have to reach at around $5 to $10.

A cash out threshold of $300 sounds absurd and makes this seem even more like a scam.

How It Really Works

Nothing about this website seems legitimate by any means.

When you come across an opportunity like this you always have to ask yourself where the money is coming from. How can they possibly afford to pay members $5 to $10 just for getting people to click on a referral link?

The answer: They CAN’T

What Is more than likely going on here is this website is making money by collecting personal data from the people that join, such as your name and email address. They make you believe that you can actually make money by referring others to join, so members go out promoting their referral link like crazy, but the only people actually make you money here are the people that created this website.

So while the creators might actually be making some money by selling personal data without you knowing it, there is still no way that they can afford to pay $5 to $10 for referral link clicks.

And why on earth would they cash out amount be $300? This just makes no sense–very scammy.

Conclusion – Avoid

Okay, so let’s do a quick recap here:

The website is very poorly put together, contains very little information, and it looks like something that a 13 year old could have created over the course of a weekend. It all sounds too good to be true and the amount of money they say you can supposedly make by simply getting people to click on your referral link sounds absurd. And you need a ridiculous amount of $300 in your account before you can cash out.

There is nothing about this that seems legitimate at all.

You are more than welcome to join if you want to, but this is definitely not a website I will be recommending to my readers. And if you do join, be sure to use an email address that you don’t really care about, because you are probably going to be receiving tons of spam emails after signing up here.

If you are looking for a legitimate and a proven way to make money online, then I would highly suggest taking a look at how I make a living working for myself online (which I have been doing since 2015).
