There are a lot of scams out there, especially in the the making money online niche. I've listed some of these programs here to help you avoid getting ripped off.

1. Get Rich Fast Scams

It seems like get rich fast scams are everywhere you look: on television, in the magazines, the newspapers, and…all over the internet. If you think that there are quick and easy ways to earn money online, you are not going to like what you are about to hear:

Earning money takes hard work in any business. Don't count on getting rich fast, because it simply isn't going to happen. If you have fallen for one of these get rich fast scams, you are not alone - many people have gotten burned by these kinds of scams at some point. The great thing is that most people learn from their mistakes…

Here is something to think about: chances are, if it sounds to good to be true, it is. If you see anything that you can earn easy money, do not believe it. Simply put, free rides to success do not happen.

2. Paid Surveys Scams

You have probably seen advertisements which claim that you can earn $150 per hour by completing paid surveys online. Sorry to burst your bubble, but if it was REALLY this easy to make $150 per hour, EVERYONE would be doing it!

The vast majority of people who are able to earn money taking paid surveys are most likely earning less than $50 a month, and are probably earning less than $5 per hour. Since many paid surveys programs charge about $50 to join, don't count on making a profit during your first month. If you are considering paying money to take paid surveys, do your self a favor and don't waste your money!

3. Home Typing Scams

People were flushing their hard earned dollars down the toilet on home typing programs with the false perception that all one needed to do to make massive amounts of money online was to " just type in data from home" Easy, right?. WRONG…

The fact of the matter is that no one is going to pay you massive amounts of money to simply enter data into a computer. While there are some legitimate data entry jobs at real business, they pay usually doesn't exceed $12 per hour, and you usually can't work these jobs from home.

4. Network Marketing Scams

Lots of people have been burned by a network marketing "opportunity". Many of these offers seem legitimate because of testimonies and other factors that give them credibility. The pitches go something like this:

"Join hundreds of others who have profited from this venture - you could be the next millionaire!".

The fact of the matter is that the only people who usually earn a significant amount of money in a network marketing scam are those who start it (and maybe a few others who miraculously made it the top level). Hundreds of network marketing programs have actually been removed from the internet because they were fraudulent businesses.

This doesn't mean that ALL network marketing companies are scams, as there honest network marketing companies out there, but before you shell out scams to join one, please be sure to do your research to make sure you do not get scammed.

I hope this helps shed some light on some of the scams out there that you should definitely avoid. If you want to learn how to make money online without getting ripped off, please sign up for a FREE Wealthy Affiliate account!
