    Scott Carter - My Work At Home Failures and Success

    A few of my mates were like "it sounds interesting". "And I'm like hey it's probably a scam but I dunno". So what do you think about this? I've seen it all over the internet, this working for Google thing. Not that I want to try it, I just want some good way of telling my mates this is a scam. Well I think it's a scam.

    He says he lives in Headley, GB (Hampshire) but seems to get payed in dollars and uses American spelling

    I activated some sort of voice recording that was an American accent (though he could be an American over here)

    THere is a photo of someone holding up a cheque, behind the girl is a left hand drive car, certainly not uncommon in the UK, but more suspicious

    The scam claims some endorsements from news agencies including BBC news

    1. The BBC will not endorse advertising unless it is part of BBC enterprises, that sells BBC programs and endorsed products worldwide.

    2. There is one link to that name on the BBC news site, and that is a link about a pensioner facing a jail sentence in Manchester

    So the whole thing does not really add up and smells of a scam

    You are right, why would Google pay so much for idle surfing of the internet, and why do non of the links go to any official Google page

    Yeah ... When I looked at the link, he was living in Mechelen ( Belgium ) so he moves around fast :-)

    Don't trust any of this.

    Perhaps the place he lives in changes depending on where you are based

    @louishen..the site says he lives in Cambridge, MA when I visit it and I am in MA..so if that itself doesn't give this away as a scam..the rest of the text should definitely raise a LARGE number of red flags..

    Man..this would make a totally cool chain letters..reminds me of the one where you just had to forward an email and Microsoft was tracking the number of people you sent it to (AND how many people the people forwarded it to did as well) and paid you for that..talk about easy money..

    I goes by where you live here is what ingot


    My name is Scott Carter and I live in Lady Lake, FL with my wife and two great kids. When I lost my job last year I spent almost a year trying to find a real, legitimate way to work at home. Instead, I kept getting scammed over and over (I lost nearly $2,000). In March I finally found the only legitimate, scam-free way to work from home. I signed up and made $1541.62 my first week! Needless to say both my wife and I were in total shock. Three weeks later I was making $2,441.36 or more every week. We were totally blown away, this was more money than I made per MONTH at my old 9-5 dead end job.

    Here's the basics of what I do. Google pays me between $5 and $30 for every web site link that I post. No one needs to buy anything from me or Google in order to get paid. I’ve been getting weekly paychecks working on my laptop at home.

    Money I Have In My Google Account

    I tend to work from home, but some days I get out and work from a coffee shop or even the park. Its really hard to call it work... I work about 8-10 hours a WEEK on average. When I'm not "working" I get to spend time with my kids and wife doing all the things we always wanted to do.

    I hated my last job, I was stuck in an office, somehow caught up in office drama, or worrying whether next week would be my last. My wife is a teacher so the kids were stuck home with grandma or off at a cheap daycare that I just did not trust. I read some articles about people making money online, but it never showed how they did it. All the programs I found by searching for "work at home" were total scams. I signed up, did all the steps, but never made any money. Right as I was about to give up all together, I found a winner!

    This was the only real way to make money from home.

    I signed up and it was really easy... I'm telling you anyone who is able to surf the internet can make money with Google. It surprises that people spend as much time online as they do NOT making money! After 3 month I'm making about $3,400 a week and I'm working 2 hours a day at most. This may not be a huge amount of money for some people but it completely changed my life.

    My Biggest Google Check So Far - $6703.04
    Please watch out for people using my check on other web sites.

    So you know, after buying all those "work at home" systems I was extremely skeptical of trying another system. Lets be real, I was scammed so many times I couldn't afford another failure. Even after my wife's yelling at me to "never waste money on another get rich quick scheme", I took a chance on the Easy Google Cash Kit. Once I got my first check realized - it sometimes takes a number of failures before you find success. Looking back it was really the best decision I have made.

    Reasons I decided to Make Money with Google:

    Its easy. All I really do is surf the web and post links.
    I only work a few hours a day, and I make MORE then I did at my last job.
    Free time. Nothing beats hanging out with my kids.
    Work when and where I want to. As long as I have a computer I can earn money.
    Spending money - I have paid off my credit debts and finally have a savings account that HAS money in it!
    Why this beats everything else:

    I didn't need any money to start.
    Not MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) where you sell stuff to friends and they sell to their friends (who does this?)
    Easy to start, I got started fast.
    No learning curve, if you are on the internet reading my web site then you can make money with this kit.
    You can get started right away, as soon as you have your Easy Google Cash Kit.
    Why are you telling everyone this secret?

    Its simple. Even though I've provided all this information about my experience, 99.9% of people reading this won't do anything to better themselves. I created this blog for people that actually want to make money online. This is not a get rich quick scheme!

    **UPDATE March 29, 2009**: When I signed up for this program I paid $97 for this kit but found out they are offering the kit for free, you just have to cover the $1.95 shipping. I'm not sure when the promotion ends. Thank you Zoe for letting me know.

    This morning he lived in Rockwall, Tx. That was when I checked it from my computer at the office.

    Now that I'm at the house tonight, he lives in Bedford, Tx.

    Everything you see on the internet like this will be a pyramid scheme so the only real "winners" are the people in it from the very beginning.

    Pyramid Scheme

    They are capped so the person at the top, stays at the top, and the more people involved, the more money they will make. Being further down the chain will almost be a guarantee that you will make no money whatsoever.

    Tom


    EDIT: I should add that they are smarter than traditional schemes - in that it's not immediately obvious what they are.
