Pop Up Scam

In this day and age, there are so many scams that we have to say Give Me A break! The computer world is full of them. From money scams gaining information scams to who knows what is next scams. I like to expose everything that I feel is a scam so the next person does not have to be a  victim if they ever run across it. Pop Up scams are constantly being scam warning

Computer Security Scam

Many times we are hit with there is a problem with your computer and is requested to take a certain action. Just remember that Blue question mark that pops up sometimes on your bottom bar to the right if you have an HP device. That is HP Assistant. Click Here for more info on the HP Assistant. It lets you know about updates and also helps you with troubleshooting any problems. You know it is coming from them and not another entity. I have an HP laptop that I use all the time to conduct my business everywhere.

My Latest Scam Revealed

Recently while using my laptop, I had a pop up that came up saying I was locked out of my computer and don’t turn it off. Along with in the message, I was prompted to call a number to a Microsoft technician.  So just out of worrying about my computer I did.

The person answered claiming to be a certified Microsoft technician. Me being who I am didn’t feel right about it but I am only human when it comes to me thinking my system is jacked up. He then said he would have to remotely get into my system and sent me a permission box to do so.

Don’t Be Scared To Askask-questions

I asked him, how do I know you are who you are claiming you are? Now I have let HP access my computer in this way but I had called them myself. Well needless to say he had an answer for that. Which was to show me some credentials. And not thinking being locked out of my computer, I let him in. Now I can’t really say what was going on but I knew the bottom line was to get something out of me like all scams are designed to do.

The certification he showed me over the computer was no more than an ad page with a company that charges $99.00 to unlock your computer.  He continued on to showing me all this code that is supposed to be the files in my computer pointing out that this is where the malicious code is putting me in danger of someone trying to steal my information.  Constantly saying I’m not the bad guy this is the bad guys trying to steal your information.

The Fix Scam

Now he says he can remove this malicious code but he asked me, do I want him to fix my problem. So I say yes. Then he asked how long do I want him to fix the problem for. Now I am really not feeling this. So I say what do you mean you said you were going to fix it. He tried to throw me off by saying I am not the bad guy I am here to help you.

Well, that is the ingredient of a scam to me. To try to throw your mind off so you can slip. I already had slipped by letting him in my system. So the next move was to take me right back to another screen with some security software on it. He said depending on how long you want me to leave the firewall up to protect me will determine the software package.

Closing Scam Tactic

Now it is time to lead you back to where the malicious code is to throw you off again claiming this what the bad guys did. Then he points out this software that cost $400.00 and that is when I said this is enough. Keep in mind he hasn’t fixed my problem yet. I told him I was under the impression I was contacting Microsoft to fix my problem not sell me something. I unkindly hung up on him, turned my computer off and it has been working fine since.

So once again another scam exposed. I hope this post gave someone some information that just might prevent them from spending money they don’t have to out of panic. I almost fell for it at first myself. That is why I felt it was important to share this.

How To Sell Your Ideas Online

Have you ever been thinking of something that you feel others could benefit from and would love to have? It happens to a lot of us periodically I’m sure. Most of the time this happens, we say if only I had this to get this idea out there or if could only do it this way it might work. Can you relate? Generally what has happened is that we came up with a need. And needs sell. You Agree?

What Do I Need To…?

Needs can be put into different categories such as knowledge about a particular thing or a product of some sort and so on. If you are like me, something has crossed your mind a dozen times or more. But have you ever took that thought, then thought about selling that idea online? There are plenty of ways to sell the idea, and online is a way you can attempt it by building it with your own hands.

You have probably seen all kinds of opportunities that are out there to set the wheels in motion on an idea that you have had. The problem is which one will give you a cost effective opportunity without the pressures of just milking you for money and not helping you obtain your goal. Been there done that right? That is one of the number one reasons a lot of people never try to see if they can promote their idea.

If you are not familiar with Niche marketing, it is an excellent opportunity to take your idea and generalize it as you make plenty of opportunities to raise even more ideas on how to promote products, services & helpful information pertaining to the respective idea. The most important part is that it will most likely be what you already love which opens your mind that much more.

Insight on Internet Businesses

Internet businesses are what a lot of people has considered when wanting to start a business at home to help out with their financial status or for something they call their own. Internet businesses can provide that but get one thing clear, if you are looking to get rich quick, then you are probably barking up the wrong tree. For one, I would like to clear up the myth that it is a walk in the park and you don’t have to put up much effort. It takes work, some investing and a passion for what you are doing. Because success doesn’t come overnight, if you have no love for what you are doing, then you have pretty much lost the battle before you even started.

There are plenty of opinions on the internet business concept. Some will say the market is so saturated you don’t stand a chance. But there are many businesses that start up with plenty of competition to face and still prosper regardless.

Some people would say you have to be an expert with HTML or any other technical things involved with starting a website business. Well as children we when we started school, we didn’t know about many of the necessary knowledge to graduate. But guess what we did graduate. And our success was pretty much proportional to how dedicated we were to learn the lessons and pass test.

Once a decision is made on what you would like to do in an internet business, practically whatever it is, the customers will be there by the millions. There are a lot of people who utilize the internet to gain knowledge on what they are after before they obtain a product or service.

How To Perfect Your Planperfect-business-plan

Anything we do has to be planned out. When we first even think about anything that will be your business idea, it will take some good business planning to put it on a solid foundation. It would be a good idea to ask yourself what am I going to be promoting. Almost you can think of, there will be a market for it.

Once you get your website business started, you have to find a reason why a person would use your site and how are you going to get them there. This is where your creativeness along with some good teaching will converge together and cause your business idea to formulate.

Now it is time to ask yourself is my plan capable of generating revenue and what expenses am I going to incur? This can be accomplished in a variety of ways. Paid & free promoting is available for you to access. But you need to know how to do these things. Again, it is up to you boil down to you having a business plan in mind.

And lastly, promoting your business is going to be a major concern. No customers no revenue right? Once again you do it for free or paid promoting, your choice if not both. As you can see there is a lot to consider to put your plan in motion but it is not something that isn’t attainable. It really depends on how determined you are to put the wheels in motion.federal-government

Federal Trade Commission Thoughts

Let’s look at another angle at starting an internet business. The Federal Trade Commission feels that when someone offers you an internet business opportunity, it can sound like a dream and warns you not to take it as a sure thing. But what start-up business can you really say is?

They also warn you if the offer states start your own business there is no experience necessary, there are experts available to train you and so on, then you should be leery. But does that mean it has to be a scam? But how else do you become an expert in something besides training and learning? Isn’t that how experience is gained by being immersed in a related topic or service?

The Federal Trade Commission has touched on some real concerns to look at but it doesn’t make every opportunity out there a scam. If a promoter offers you an opportunity that is not legitimate, they can be breaking the law which makes them liable. So any opportunity that has been around for awhile has a better chance at being a legitimate offer and carefully try to engage in it if that is going to help you attain your goal.

Describe A Fraud!fraudulent-sign

A fraud is described as a criminal deception intended to result in a financial or personal gain. This means that an offer is lying about what they plan to offer you ion some form or fashion for money.

Sure there are things out there but it would only be a scam if the offer has promises that can’t be delivered. But if the offer provides you with what it claim it would, doesn’t that make it a legitimate offer? Now it is really up to how serious you are about making it a successful dream doesn’t it?

True Free Business Opportunity

There are many opportunities available that a person can try out. There is a program that I would recommend because everything that is offered is delivered. And because everything is given as offered, you have a true chance at owning your own internet business. I am not going to go into deep detail in this post but I am going to direct you to this link. The Wealthy Affiliate Review.

If you reviewed the link, keep in mind what the Federal Trade Commission had to say about offers. Then pay attention to how this program gives you a chance, without any money upfront, to weigh out the pros & cons. and I’m not talking about for 7 days, 14 days or 30 days but as long as you like with minimal training. But at least you still get to try what it is all about and I promise you will glad you did. Know honestly, Does that feel like a scam to you?

This program is totally against spam or any other unethical practices associated with internet marketing.  I would like to thank you for visiting and if you have any questions or comments leave them in the comments section in this post or on top of the home page and I will elaborate them with you. Continue to check in as there will be different scams delivered to you from time to time.


Pay Pal Scam Alert

It is a shame that all the things we do these days we have to be on guard against fraudulent entities as if we are in a battle zone for our own privacy. The way things are now open the door for so many scam opportunities that we have to arm ourselves with the knowledge to protect ourselves.

Our identity and our privacy have become a battlefield in the cyber world on an everyday basis. Pay Pal is a service that many people use to handle payments for them, making their monthly payouts and purchases hassle free.

Customer Information Securitysecurity-guard

Most companies like Pay Pal do their part in protecting your personal information. But they cannot control the clever antics against their customers by these scam artist who is very capable of adapting to the changes they might come up with. In most cases because of the internet & social media, these doors of opportunity are even larger for the scam artist. Now they can go behind companies back and obtain what they need using them as an entry platform.

Improve Your Chances Against Scams

The one thing we all can do is pay attention when we hear about any scam. This will give you the weapons you need to thwart them. The more you know about how they are being done the more defense you can put up against them.

Gather all information in your head about what tactics are being used so when you run into a situation that red flag will pop up automatically. Now your thoughts will be to put on your counter-attack which would be to let others know and contact the necessary company of their culprits.

Pay Pal Scam Weaponsweapons

Pay Pal has identified the E-mail scam very well. One of them is to claim that someone is using your account without you knowing. Basically, this scam is designed to get you to go to your account and confirm your information. Then try to get you to go to a link and to provide more personal information. This link is most likely a link to the scammer to get all the information on your account they can.

The scammers will use this same tactic in a different form. They will claim your account is about to expire in an attempt to lure you to another bogus link where they can gather your personal information.

The way to avoid these attempts is to know that if it doesn’t say something isn’t right. Also, Pay Pal will never greet you as Dear User or Customer. And never download any attachments or share your information via E-mail. There just are certain things Pay Pal or any other company won’t do and you should know what they are.

Scam Detection Signals

E-mail addresses are a good way to lead you to the conclusion something isn’t right. It will normally be a personalized address rather than the companies address. Also, if the content has poor spelling and grammar then you should be inclined to check further. You can find out URL by hovering over the links. Make sure to inspect every link before you click it.

If you feel like you are being pressured into taking some sort of action, then that also should bring up a red flag. One thing that Pay Pal and many other companies won’t do is ask for any information once you are securely logged into your account. All these things in mind will help you from falling victim to a Pay Pal scam and will work just as well with any other form of business you conduct within this new technology platform.

Thank you for visiting. Please share comments up top on what you know about scams. It will certainly help anyone who visits this After all, an army of knowledge is better than just one person sharing their knowledge of something.

But by all means, shop around for the one who pays the commission you want and the products that are going to work for you.

Things To Consider In An Affiliate ProgramThink-First

If you are going to partner up with someone the biggest thing is to know who you are dealing with. What can they offer you? And are they going to conduct business  dealings in time and appropriately? It is also important to them as well about you. Whatever your site pertains to, you want an affiliate company who can supply products that are relative to your content.

It is very important that tracking customers are solid so there is no problem with your business dealings.

How To Join An Affiliate Program

Once you have found one or two you would like to deal with, there is usually a request to become an affiliate with them you have to submit. You supply them with your website information and briefly tell them how you plan to promote them. Usually, who you join with will have a variety of companies with different product options as well as commission options. So how many you submit it is up to you.

The reason it is important to have pages and post in place is because they will; review your site and determine if you are for them or not. But if one turns you down don’t get discouraged because there are those who won’t. Remember your job is to promote and try to convince visitors of the value of the product or service.

Direct Debit Scams – Be Aware

There are a lot of scams out there today that some people may not be aware of. One that can slip right by you if you are not paying attention is the Direct Debit scam. Because they can be as small as 1 cent per account, a multitude of people can be scammed simultaneously to make the scam artist quite a bit over a period of time without being detected. Because we are so used to setting up larger amounts most of us will not expect it and won’t see it coming.

Definition Of A Direct Debit

Direct Debit is a payment system in which creditors are authorized to debit a customer’s bank account directly at regular intervals. There are two types one being the direct debit and the other a standing order. The standing order is a fixed amount while the direct debit can be flexible. These can be helpful in keeping your payments on time and make them worry free. But at the same time, it opens the door yet to another way to be scammed.

The Direct Debit set up amount can be changed but there are some stipulations to it. If a change is to happen the account holder must be notified in writing or through their electronic banking account information. This will help in detecting something isn’t right. Although direct debit makes it easy for us, like many other things the opportunist finds a way to make it benefit his own selfish gain. I just feel the need to make people aware of this scam to put them on alert.

How Can This Be Done?scam-artist

It is very simple sadly to say. Most of us have set up a direct debit a least once purchasing something or getting some service plan. We are required to give some information such as your name, bank account number, routing number and address of your bank (which is easily accessible). Sometimes maybe not all of that.  The only thing I didn’t mention is your address. This is what opens the door to for fraudulent activity. There is no way to tie the registrant to the other information the way the system is operated.

Let’s take someone buying a portable hotspot for their laptop computer. They buy their device with cash and they don’t have to show any other proof of identification. When they give the billing information to set up the direct debit, they give your information instead of their own. Once the bank receives this information, they assume that it was a legit transaction and process it. Now your account has been scammed.

Just The Tip Of The Iceberg

It is sad to say that things just are not like they use to be. It used to be hard to pass information through like that without it being matched up completely first. Because of all the electronic methods, these types of things are able to slip by. The Direct Debit system, because of how it is run, really has no way to match up the name to the bank account information. this makes it really crazy because now someone can use any name and address to set up such payments on your account that they manage to steal.

Measures To Taking Against ItScam-Police

Sometimes it is wise to police your own personal information. Things are not always set up with the consumer in mind. As of right now there is not anything set up to offset these kinds scams. So the best thing is to check your account activities every month making sure there is nothing that you don’t recognize. If there is proceed to have the direct debit cut off. Most of the times the scammer will use smaller amounts which have the tendency to slip by us undetected. So stay alerted and protect your accounts.

Thank you for visiting. I hope I enlightened someone out there that may be a potential victim. Feel free to leave any comments in the comment section up top.

Introduction to Wealthy Affiliate

Wealthy Affiliate is a program designed to help the inexperienced and the experienced, succeed in their idea of having an online business. This is fact, not fiction and I’ll tell you why.

One: I had no experience when I joined for $0. But as of now, I have two websites and some idea of how and where I want my businesses to end up.

Two: I have learned some technical information that a person has to know to make your idea work. And it was all given through the program in an easy to understand structure with the free startup.

Three: There is an established community of members who get pleasure in helping everyone succeed with sincerity.

Four: The best training by far because of its support & training techniques in which you can witness even with the free startup.

In fact, it is a service and community based program that allows you to learn what it takes to operate a successful online business. The community is full of experts and other members who are eager to learn from one another. Plus Wealthy Affiliate has composed the best training and support system there is to ensure their members are working with the top of the line tools such as plug-in & keyword tools available. A good example is you can present a question about anything and get it your problem resolved. (Here is an Example)

Anyone can be a member whether you are completely knowledgeable about online businesses or you don’t have a clue. It doesn’t matter what age you are, where you are or what device you use to work the program. You can be a member as long as you first join and have an internet connection that you can utilize.

So if you are willing to learn, engage yourself and apply all the things that Wealthy Affiliate has to offer then you are truly qualified to be a member in this program that is very capable of delivering you the aspirations that go through your mind.

The training will accommodate both beginners and seasoned online business owners.  Because there are people involved that have experience and will help you anytime, there is not a member who wouldn’t learn how to be successful.

Here is a preview of the tools that you can have to work with once you enter the program.

All this is available right at the start of your membership which is a serious array of perks.

As someone who started with no knowledge of an online business, I must admit that having the tools & a community to fall back on makes a difference. It’s like having an older brother or sister to guide you through what they have already experienced.

Knowing that someone can get you pass something you may not quite understand, is exactly what the Wealthy Affiliate community does at the most important time of your learning process. That is what you can expect from the beginning 24/7. This is a major plus for the program.

Kyle & Carson, who are the owners, include themselves in this learning process like the rest of the community. Is there anywhere else where the owners are so engaged?  This puts the exclamation point on this program.

What You Can AchieveInevitable-Success

The first thing is you will have gotten past the procrastination or any other reason that prevented you from starting your own online business. You will gain all the knowledge you need to make an honest run at making a successful business.

Because you will be totally engaged with the classes that provide questions & answers, interactive discussions, video training combined with tasks to the courses, you start to build plenty of confidence knowing that you made the right decision to join Wealthy Affiliate. Nothing is more important than feeling in your gut that something is righteous. That is worth more than gold by itself.

What’s The Bottom Line: Price

There are two ways to enter into the program.

You will still have access to live chat, over 500 training modules, 3 classrooms, networking, commenting & access to a free keyword tool.

With the Wealthy Affiliate Premium program, you will learn that it is a go all-in package that gives you the relief from all the fees that start to pile up. Fees like hosting fees, keyword tool fees, website builder fees (now you do it yourself), searching for answers to questions and a program without any malarkey.
