I do my best to be aware of any new work at home scams before they start to make the rounds. Here is another incarnation of the chameleon ” Posting links online ” scam with Melissa Mayer this time. I think they are trying to be clever as they have used the @ sign and call it Work@Home. It seems they are running out of original names and are now subjecting themselves to using symbols. So without further ado, I present to you, my…
Melissa Mayer Work at home Review
Work@Home starts out exactly the same as several other scams of this nature.
Our story begins with a woman named Melissa Mayer. She has worked really. really hard her whole life. Topping it off with having to raise her child alone. Working multiple jobs trying to make ends meet it all comes to a screeching halt on
On this day Melissa Mayer was fired from her full time job. ( The job she relied upon the most ). She cries for days, feeling lost, helpless and scared. Then she gets mad and starts to think and decide for herself what her dream job would be. after much conversation with everyone she talks to we are informed
She meets a man who has been working online part time for years, and lucky for her, he shares his secret to success. Three months later…..she quits all of her jobs, doubles her income working only four hours a day and now she is a millionaire !!!!
Wow !! Wasn’t that a fascinating story? The best part is the “millionaire” is going to share her secret with us ( a $2000 dollar value by the way ) for the low, low one time only price of $97. Isn’t that great?
So How is it a Scam?
Patience grasshopper, I’m getting right to it.
The implication is made that payment is rendered just for posting the links. Not true. Payment is only rendered if and when the link is clicked on and a purchase is made as a result of the link. These are called affiliate links. So this ” system ” is loosely based on affiliate marketing.
This system is called ” Internet Link Posting ” <sighhhhhhhhh> If I had a nickel for every ” program ” like this I’ve investigated…….well, you know. The sales page continues to elaborate by informing the reader of all the mega companies desperately searching for partners or contractors to post links ( on and offline ) to their websites in order to generate more sales.
The sales page takes like three sections with six paragraphs each to tell us these mega corporations are desperate for people to post these links because they can’t afford to construct the huge building or pay all the employees they would have to hire in order to do this in-house. Anybody out there falling for that one? I certainly hope not.
They provide a calculator with which you can estimate the huge amounts of cash you will generate for posting these links. Check this out:
My personal thought is: This calculator appeals to our inner greedy child and causes us to see $$$$$ dancing before our very eyes. I think this because I tried a program which was exactly the same only it was called Work at Home Institute (Read about my experience !) When I used the calculator I saw many, many $$$$$ If I only knew then what I know now.
More Food For Thought
Customer satisfaction and testimonials are prevalent on these sales pages. They are all made up.
While perusing this page I kept my eyes open for the inevitable slip-up which is a common occurrence. I found it Looky here:
Now the reason I call this a slip up Is because the name of this system is called Work@home right? However, this ( found at the bottom where you sign up ) speaks of Careers@Home University.
I took off to find out what I could and ended up here:
Look familiar? Here’s a hint: Scroll back to the top of the page. That isn’t all believe it or not. Following is another excerpt from the sales page and proof of the untruth:
Not to mention Work at Home Institute and Work at Home university.( Sorry, no screenshots of those. Trust me on this one okay? )
How about this? A list of all the names I have come across in relation to this particular overworked scam:
- Melissa Mayer
- Cami White
- Debbie Jones
- Bobbie Robinson
- Angela Bussio
- Diane Fisher
- Kelly Frazier
- Jessica Marshall
- Kelly Frost
Just to name a few.
All of these findings remind me of a snake. Here’s why. Every so often a snake will shed it’s skin and replace it with completely new skin giving the appearance of a brand new snake. But a snake is still a snake on the inside no matter how many times it sheds it’s skin.
One More Thing
Always, always look at the disclaimer. Here is an excerpt from the Work@Home disclaimer:
Sounds to me like the fictitious Ms. Melissa Mayer doesn’t even believe in her own product. If even ” She ” doesn’t believe why does she expect you to believe? She doesn’t really care. She just wants your money.
There you have it.
