Link Posting Scams In A Nutshell

Recently the victim of a link-posting scam posted this summary of how these scams work. I couldn’t have said it better myself. This is a must-read!:

“They claimed that you could get paid for setting up links for companies and get paid $15 to $20 dollars per link and it would only take you approximately only 3 to 4 minutes to set up a link. Then they cite you could average 15 links per hour.

The problem, which they do not tell you, that you actually have to set up an individual website (my note: I believe he means webpage)  for each link. Then you have to start advertising your web site in hope somebody clicks your web site and you are able to pass the business (earn a commission).

There is a whole lot of cost, experience that they claim you don’t need. Yes, you can set up a website if you know what your are doing. If you don’t they give you very little info on just how to do that. The non-knowledgeable person, is probably talking many days to finally get everything set up, plus a lot more cost.  SCAM-SCAM-SCAM.”

The Online Profit Stream Review Of Red Flags

As more and more people are beginning to realize the benefits of working at home, the number of unscrupulous individuals who target them is on the rise. One website that has been receiving complaints is called Online Profit Stream. According to a lot people who have signed up for the site the program wasn’t what it seemed to be at all. In fact the whole site appears to simply be a lead generation site to get you to talk to a sales person who will try to pressure you to spend money on coaching (typically not very good) that you don’t need.

What’s worse, is that once you give up your phone number, many people have reported that it’s very hard to get sales people to stop calling you. In fact, some people have had to resort to changing their phone numbers to get the calls to stop!

What The Online Profit Stream Website Is All About

If you go to their official website, the first thing that you will notice is the headline in big font size saying this:

“In the Next 60-Seconds – Get Access to the Biggest Money-Making Secret of 2014.”

This alone is enough to catch the interest of people, especially those who are looking for extra source of income.

If you read the rest of the home page content, you will led to believe that the website is accepting applicants who do not have any prior experience or a college degree. The site also claims that since the “work” is web-based you can virtually do it wherever you may be, as long as you are connected to the Internet. The site also wants you to believe that you can make money by simply “posting links”. The truth is link posting scams are one of the most pervasive scams on the Internet today.

Beware Of The “Free Consultation With A Success Advisor”

Any time you see a site promising a “Free Consultation With A Success Advisor” you should run for the hills. The consultation is merely a marketing gimmick to get you to speak with a sales person who will try to sell you the expensive coaching I mentioned previously

The Bottom Line About Online Profit Stream

I strongly recommend you avoid the Online Profit Stream website. It’s simply a new face for a long list of sites using fake persona’s to try to get you to talk to a slick, high-pressure sales person who will try to siphon as much money as possible out of you.
