    Is It Really A Scam?

    Everyone is trying to make money on line these days and it shocks me to see how much the word scam is used. Oh sure there are a lot of scams out there but not as many as people claim. Personally I think all the scam artists should be caught and shut down. We live in a society of fast money, fast cars, but no effort. In this excerpt I would like to make a claim as to why I think people fail to make money on the internet.

    1. First of all if you are gullible to think that you can make 100 000 dollars by the end of the month or add your name to something, sit back and wait and the money will come flooding in then Iím sorry to say but you deserve the scam. In your day job can you just sit back, do nothing and earn a pay check? I donít think so. You wouldnít last to the end of the week. I fell for these to.

    2. The internet is a great place to make more money than you have ever earned but come on people we have to use common sense. Iím sorry but people are so quick to blame everyone else but they refuse to take any of the blame themselves. If you are not willing to put in the effort then you shouldnít be thinking about internet income.

    3. At a real job you have to work hard to get to the next rung. On an internet job you have to work hard to get to the next rung. At a real job you have to work hard for pay raises. On line you have to work hard for pay raises. At a real job the rungs run out on the ladder. On line the rungs go on forever. At your day job you have very little control over your income. On line you have almost all the control on how much you make.

    4. Internet work has been given a bad rap. Ignorance is not an excuse. We have to make our own decisions. Millions and millions of people are making money on line because they decided it was time to take their lives into their own hands.

    I too was scammed many times but I donít blame anyone but myself. There are so many good sites out there but we have to be willing to do the work. I know lots of people out there that make a great living working on the internet. However they donít let up. When they are working they are working 14 hours a day to keep their programs running. Eventually once your established you can cut back and enjoy life some more.

    Great information! I have been saying the same thing for years and after awhile you really do get to the point where you just want to say "Go ahead and pay for that program and let me know how it turns out"

    I still try to NOT have that attitude but it seems like it should be common sense for people to realize there are no "magic" ways to make money online or off.

    For the record.. I work at home and feel like I have a "real" job.. I hate when people refer to offline work as "real" but online is play? In the beginning I did work 14 hours a day. Now I can just work a few hours a day but it's still "real" work.

    I agree, if you don't take the bait it is pretty difficult to be scammed. I have never been scammed online. If you take a moment it is easy to realize when someoen is scamming you and just don't take the bait.
