I'm almost 40 with NO SKILLS, NO COLLEGE EDUCATION, and NO CREDIT. Well, that's precisely why I developed the Instant Money Invention Plan. It changed my life... in an instant! From the very first day, I was able to tell my friends and neighbors that I made $80,000 a year working from home! It was SO EASY! I needed NO SPECIAL TRAINING, and there were NO STARTUP COSTS.

    The sad part is that this is almost true.. write an ebook that has even a teeny tiny bit of truth in it.. create a sales page with all kinds of wild claims and add in a price tag of $99+ (If you create a dvd you can thousands), put it on clickbank.. squidoo, etc.. get some spammers to hit the forums and you have an "instant" success.. Don't forget to use really ugly colors, giant fonts and fake testimonials...

    Will you make $80k? I doubt it.. Will you sleep well at night? I hope not.. :bah:

    It's funny how close that Onion article is to real ads for make money online scams.

    Maybe it's just me, but $80k a year doesn't sound that exciting. Now, if it were $80k a month, that would be worth looking into.

    Katie, you're an internet marketer right? What kind of offers are you promoting. What types of numbers and traffic are you seeing?

    My sentiments exactly. As someone who has been involved in legitimate affiliate marketing for the better part of 10 years (mainly Commission Junction), it bugs me that some of the new generation of marketers have absolutely zero ethics.

    The whole attitude has become to get some junk info product together, create some phony testimonials and slap it all over Facebook ads and watch the suckers roll in.

    I see so many marketers blatantly violating the FTC Truth in Advertising but they push the envelope until they get caught, pay a fine and right back to business.

    Oh well, at least some of us can sleep at night.

    Wow that is a lot of money even for any person who has never worked online to know that it is a scam. It is not just realistic to make that a lot of money in one month.
