Looks like the work from home scammers love Mark Cuban and Donald Trump – they’re using their images and fake quotes on many sites now, including this one – Home Wealth Remedy.
DO NOT purchase this product based on this false representation.
I’ll give these guys points for tenacity, but I sure as hell won’t give them my money!
Claiming that their system is helping people become “millionaires,” this con follows along the same lines as many of the other work from home scams I’ve covered previously.
They start with a spam email or a banner ad on social media or website pages. Trump and Cuban are the “hooks” – included to lure consumers in.
Once you’re on the site, you’ll land on a page where the cons gather your contact details. Now, if you missed it in some of my other posts, it’s important to know that, even if you go no further in the process, entering your contact information is already a win for them. Scammers commonly sell email addresses to other scammers for a hefty per-email fee. At this point, you’re considered a “warm” lead because they know you are interested in work from home opportunities.
Now, once you get past this page (not that you should – you SHOULDN’T), you’ll meed “Bree Johnson” – a completely made-up person who shares her equally made-up rags to riches story with you. Weep as our pretend heroine tells you how she lost her job and couldn’t afford to buy her little boy a birthday present. Cheer as she shares her success, “I live in Hawaii, I have no financial worries anymore and, I feel so secure, free and happy… It is the ultimate high in the world, a feeling hard to explain.”
She’s got a lot of chutzpah for someone who isn’t.
No scammer worth his salt is going to put a site up without some phony testimonials (testi-phonials). After all, while the site owner is trying to sell us something and may not be entirely forthcoming, we can surely take the word of ordinary people like “Veronica R.,” right?
I mean, look at her standing lovingly behind her guy – both of them smiling.
She’s “Forever Grateful” that she found this system. And we know she means it because she capitalized the F and the G!
But alas, that lovely photo is a stock art image bought (just kidding, probably pirated) from a site that sells images.
You can see “Veronica” and her guy here where you’ll find them billed simply as “happy senior couple in the park.” 😉
THE TIP OF THE SCAM ICEBERG
If you still haven’t bailed out, and if you do make a purchase for $97.95, 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.
