The Online Business Systems Scam
You can barely go a day without hearing about a fast and easy way to make money online. There are so many sites out there that promise people that they can make money at home easily over a small period of time. Few websites spend thousands of dollars a month to get new people to believe in the Online Business System Scam. The sad thing is that there are legitimate new channels and radio stations that are advertising the Online Business System as if they’re a legitimate way to make money but that couldn’t be further from the truth… and you don’t want to be fooled by them so read on and find out more about the Online Business System opportunity.
What is The Online Business Systems?
The Online Business Systems utilizes websites that essentially promise people that they can work from home by selling a product (which you’re kept in the dark about through the entire process) and make large amounts of money in days.
Their promotional websites usually has a very basic video or article explaining how they can help you make 5 to 6 figures a month in a very short period of time using their system. They also claim to work one on one with you to ensure that you become as successful as possible.
The websites go on saying that you don’t have to be an internet expert to use their system. They claim that you don’t need ANY marketing, sales or business experience to sell their product (which is still unknown). A few hours a week is enough to make thousands and thousands of dollars a month. The website will continually drive home the point that this is a super easy way to make money. They want potential customers to be blown away by the chance to make a ton of money with very little effort which is everyone’s dream.
There are also some other tell-tale signs that a website might be representing the Online Business Systems scam. Often there will be a “testimonial” that has no way of being proven as the truth. For example, the website will claim to have a “friend” that made a huge amount of money in the first few months of working with this online business system. The testimonial will go on and on to talk about how the business changed the friend’s life without mentioning what they sold and how they sold it. The website will also plead its case that it is not a get rich quick scheme although that’s exactly what it is. It will claim that you can make up to $5,000 a month online with exclusive knowledge and hard work. The final cherry on the cake of it all, is the screen shots of supposed “earnings” that people made from using their products.
So, what happens when someone ignores all of those warning signs and decides to invest in the online business systems anyways? They lose a nice chunk of money. The website will promise to send the potential scam victim a work from home start up kit. These kits can cost anywhere from $40 to $100.
This may not seem like a lot of money but imagine if thousands and thousands of people send money to them, they will be making a huge amount of money in no time. After the kit is sent the website will most likely set up an appointment with people to explain to them how to go about making more money with them.
Many people realize at this point that the company is a scam because the start up kit doesn’t give the worker any valuable information. The kit consists of a DVD and a booklet that basically explains the benefits of working from home instead of working for other people.
This is topic people don’t need a “start up kit to explain to them. The company claims to provide the package for just $40 + $10 shipping and handling. However, you’re expected to send the package back to them for an additional $10 giving them even more wasted money.
Online Business System Reviews
Hopefully, most people will stop there. Some people have gone on to send the Online Business Systems even more money in exchange to receive “packages to sell.” Some people have claimed to send thousands of dollars for these packages and never received a package. Here is what one person had to say about this terrible scam experience:
I am now dealing with the repercussions of my actions by submitting my $10.
I then had buyer’s remorse and thought I should find out whom I am giving my money too and just investigate more. Well, there is NO contact info. given up… this is always a bad sign, I found it in the “privacy” section at the very bottom where you would think to find out what the terms of privacy are.
Also, they don’t disclose to you that it is HERBALIFE which you will be representing. Why do companies do this… simple, bring in the suckers for a measly $10 and then $40 to return their goods and they’ve pocketed $50 x how many suckers…. you get the idea.
I realized my misjudgment in making this non thought out decision and immediately contacted them after they called which by the way is a human being but reading from a script. I indicated I wanted to cancel my order and she would pause but then carry on with the script.
They have received my CANCEL this order via email and then sent a second email asking to review my decision to give me more info and by the way, we sent you the pkg. already. I bet you did! Now, if this was a legitimate company they would have said who they are and what they do and how to find us. If you were a displeased customer and they wanted to keep you happy even though they wanted to make a return immediately, they would have taken back the item and made it right for the customer. End of story. Customer happy no bad words. PLEASE, don’t be a sucker like me and give them your hard earned money. This to me is how they make theirs by poor suckers like me.
