Okay, I think I very well may have uncovered the greatest scam of all. This website is heavily promoting an eBook that supposedly teaches it’s readers how to find real work at home jobs. Given the nature of these claims, I’d like to send one of our readers in to take a look and report their findings. I suspect many of you who are reading this have already fell victim to their claims and purchased the book without our thorough review. For this reason, we won’t be spending money to send any new secret agents in, but rather, if you’ve already signed up and have a story to tell, we want to hear it.

The eBook that we’re placing under fire is The Complete I’ve Tried That Guide to Telecommuting. They are making outlandish claims that anyone can find real work at home jobs online and easily make an extra $200/month at least doing freelance work. We thought that we’ve seen everything folks, but this book just takes the cake.

Take for example this excerpt from their presale page:

Yes, you’ve read that correctly. We’re not promising you thousands of dollars for no work because we know that offers that make those kinds of promises are usually dishonest. Instead, we just promise to teach you how to find genuine jobs online.

We teach you about the entire process of finding a telecommuting job, including resumes, where/how to find real jobs, and how to communicate with potential employers. No gimmicks. We’ll simply show you how to use various online resources to find legitimate jobs.

You need to break the notion that you will become richer than your wildest dreams by doing data entry online. It’s simply unrealistic. But adding an extra $200 or so to your budget every month is not only realistic, it’s relatively easy if you have some marketable computer skills.

I’ve been in this business for a few years now and these claims are unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. We’re desperately seeking honest reviews from any of our readers to expose the madness behind this eBook. So please, if you have any information regarding The Complete I’ve Tried That Guide to Telecommuting that we can use, post it in the comments section below, or send us an email. Until then, I’ll sit here and anxiously await our first reader response.

Good luck and God speed.

There's only ONE program I really recommend. It helped me turn my 'hobby' into a $10,000+ per month money making machine. Click here for the exact formula I followed.

    Since this was sent to you via email and you have the company’s name, you might do a search at Snopes.com to see what they say. Anything questionable that comes to me through my Inbox is always checked at Snopes.com.

    Good luck & be careful!

    Thanks for checking this one out for me, guys. It didn’t look right to me, but I wanted to know what you thought.

  • Joe

    I see a couple of red flags. First, even though Tim Connolly is a common name, coupled with CEO and sports nutrition, it should return some results. I found something at Reuters that looks like it’s about the guy.

    Second, the link you sent us is long on hype and short on substance. It’s an affiliate gig, not a stock sale, right? So why would they need to advise anyone of a pre-launch? It still will only matter if your Web site has enough traffic and a respectable conversion rate. I predict at some point they’ll ask you for money, which is not how affiliate sales works. Try it out, though. Just be wary about the “opt-in fee” or whatever they call it.

  • Harold

    One more thing: I took out the name of the Company listed at the end of the email. You probably won’t find the company by simply searching for the name of the CEO listed, “Tim Connolly”; I already searched and didn’t find anything. (It’s a fairly common name.)

    Looks like the tags I placed in my previous comment were stripped. Anyway, for anyone reading the comment and scratching their heads in wonder, there were URLs posted in the email, and they had the (apparent) sender’s name in the URLs (sometimes before the first dot, othertimes after the last slash). So does anyone think this is legit?

  • Harold

    Guys, I just received the following email, and I’d like you to tell me if it looks suspicious to you. I won’t mention who it’s from, and I’ve placed a tag where the links were:

    I hate to disappoint you guys but I think they are employing only those in my area. But here is their website/blog. Keep watching it, who knows if they open up a position soon. I checked the employment website (which I suspect belongs to them too) I got them from and it seems the ads were taken off. It seems to be a home-based company with an international outreach specializing on Call Center, SEO and the sort: http://www.futuregen.sg

    I rejected their offer, though, because I could not commit on the days required :(. No fees needed, just a short offline transcription test which you then return to them via email. Best of luck guys! -bob

    I just applied for a transcription job… however.. I was annoyed that they wanted to charge me $499.99 for software…. whyyyy… they promised tuition free training and my own personal trainer… so why charge me $499.99 for software and on top of that if I my trainer feels that I need further training I can buy manuals for $60… Bob.. can you please tell us if you did the same thing or how did you get your job, cause Im interested but Im not interested in paying money…


  • Joe

    That’s awesome, Bob. Do tell more about your transcription job. Is it something more of our readers could get in on?

  • bob


    This is a very creative way to get testimonial, feedback and more awareness for the eBook on ivetriedthat.com’s part :-) … Work at home is a little hard to come by here. I got one, though, but not through the eBook’s guidance – a transcription job. What the eBook did for me was, it gave GREAT pointers on improving my resume and cover letter coz it seems to grab MORE attention for my non-work-at-home applications than before! Kudos and thanks for the eBook!

  • Steve

    You’re a quick one Fany. I thought I might have been able to sneak one past you, but I should have never underestimated you.

    If you liked the first version of the book, you’re going to love what we have in store for round two!
