    Unique Marketing

    I found this ad and cannot decide wether or not it is a scam. Please tell me what you think.

    Subject: Data Entry Opportunity



    If you have a stable internet connection (which I believe you do since you are reading this page online), posses some basic computer skills, could do some normal typing and have about 2-3 hours per day initially to give then I can show you how you can make substantial amount of income typing data for established internet companies. You can earn a steady cash flow and will get paid twice every month directly to your bank or delivered to your door working right from the comfort of your home. What you will be doing is filling out forms and typing ads on behalf of these companies on a daily basis.



    There are no special skills or experience required to do this business. As long as you have access to the Internet and have basic typing skills, you could do this work.



    Unlike other programs out there, I stand behind my product to provide personal one on one support to my members. As such I am only able to take limited members per month.



    There is a one-time $35 investment. I will put my money where my mouth is and I can guarantee that you will earn between $200-$500 per week minimum if you apply my step-by-step instructions.



    If this is something that you feel you would like to pursue, email me back for full details and I will be glad to help you get started.





    Sincerely,



    Theresa Black

    President

    I asked for more details and recieved this:

    Any one or thing that asks for money upfront and don't offer anything in return ( products, books anything ) is a scam to me ;)

    Hey Tianna..

    If I were you I would not trust this particular "job", not only do they not have their own website but they don't provide a phone number they can be reached at.. which is quite odd since all businesses give out their business number.

    Re: Unique Marketing

    Its the usual clickbank and adwords routine (affiliate marketing) you pay for the sponsored ads on google. You make money if you sell something. It can work as long as your advertising spend isn`t more than your making.

    Save your money.

    Yeah, I saw this on craigslist as well, I was planning to go through with it, but decided to check up on some information about "Unique Marketing" as well. And I found this.
    But wow, $400 a week is very easy money

    Re: Unique Marketing

    STAY AWAY from ALL "type at home" offers. It's just a twist on using Adwords to send visitors to your clickbank affiliate links. You could easily spend $100-$200 daily on clicks and not earn one sale from your affiliate link. If you can afford the risk.....

    Re: Unique Marketing

    Ultimately what you are doing is taking out ads to have other people spend the same $34 you did. Not really a scam but definetly a pyramid scheme. You can make money but very unlikely.
