This scam uses a number of celebrity names in their spam email subject lines, including Mark Cuban, Donald Trump, and Warren Buffet. Neither these nor any other celebrities are associated with this “opportunity”.
DO NOT purchase this product based on these FAKE celebrity endorsements.
This particular scam uses the same template used by hundreds of work from home scam sites over the past several years. It works so well for the con artists that they just keep reproducing it – changing the names of the “programs” and “systems” as well as the name of their spokesperson/expert.
Any time you encounter a site with this look, it’s a scam – move on! (If you’re looking for a real work from home job, check out RatRaceRebellion.com. I’m a partner in the business, we’ve been around since 1999, and we ONLY list screened legitimate work from home jobs.)
This site starts off with the following hook, “If You Can Spare 60 Minutes A Day, We Can Offer You A Certified, Proven And Guaranteed Home Job To Make Up To $379/Day From Home!,” and claims to be a “Special Report” from “Kelly Simmons.”
There is no Kelly Simmons – scammers plug in a name to humanize the offer. They’ll use that name until word starts to get out on the internet that “Kelly Simmons” is a scam, and then they’ll change the name.
They also feature the usual list of “testi-phonials” running down the right side of the page. The images and the testimonials are fake.
In this screenshot from the site, you’ll see an older man, whom the call “Wesley R. Stevenson” and a young woman they’re calling “Veronica R.”.
A quick bit of research reveals that both are stock art images – either purchased or stolen (I’m guessing the latter) by the scammers to help convince you to buy their product.
If you still haven’t bailed out, and if you do make a purchase (seriously?!), be prepared – this purchase kicks off a whole new set of scams.
First, you’ll get a phone call telling you that “a few select people” (like you and anyone else who has money they’re willing to part with) are able to participate in their COACHING, MENTORING, TRAINING, or whatever the name du jour is. They’ll ask you some questions that will give them a sense of how much credit card debt you can take on, and will price your personalized coaching accordingly. That’s right – if you only have a low limit card, they might only charge you $5oo for the coaching. If you have more credit available, the same coaching might come with a price tag of $1,500.
But wait, there’s more. These people are like a damned cutlery commercial! If you buy into the coaching, they’ll try to sell you a website (using their vendor), encourage you to set up a business entity (using their vendor), and a bunch of other “great services” that are supposed to help you succeed.
At the end of the day, the only people making money are the people who are running this con.
