I was browsing Facebook last night and saw the following ad on the sidebar: “Need an extra $10,000? Find out how to earn an extra $10,000. Anyone can apply.” Again, I didn’t make that up. It is an actual ad and as ridiculous as it is, people are falling for it.
The ad links to a website called ScottsMoneyBlog.com which isn’t really a blog at all, but rather a fake page designed to look like a blog. The page is run by Scott Hunter who is conveniently located in your home town. It doesn’t matter where you are in the world; Scott Hunter is your neighbor. This is actually a pretty deceptive trick that is accomplished by using a script that takes your IP address and tracks down your location to display it on the page. It makes it appear as if Scott was born and raised in sunny small town where-ever-the-hell-you’re-from and if he could do it, so could you. Let’s elaborate more on what the it is.
Scott Hunter, accompanied by his poorly photoshopped screenshots, claims to have went from working a grueling manufacturing job to earning upwards of $5,000 per month by simply posting links to Google. Scott learned how to post links to Google after sending $1.97 for his “free” Google Fast Cash kit. Look, I consider myself to be rather technically savvy. At the risk of sounding like a major geek, I won’t go into too much detail on the subject, but rest-assured, I’ve never heard of Google paying anyone for “posting links to Google.” Well, Scott, let’s see what all the fuss is about and click through on one of your many “Google Money” links.
Google Fast Cash and the Cash Secret Club
We’ve covered these “Google” products so many times in the past. So for now, I’m going to cut right to the chase. When you sign up for the “free” kit, you are agreeing to pay a ridiculous amount of money each month to memberships to various programs. These are programs that you’ve never heard of before and are of no use to you. More than likely, they simple exist to charge you money and that’s it.
Google Fast Cash is no different. If you were to read their Terms and Conditions page, you’ll find this line: “If you have not cancelled the free bonus within the 7 day trial period (if offered on product purchasing), you are agreeing to purchase the bonus material and/or service at a monthly reoccurring cost. The resource center is billed at $81.32 monthly.” That’s right. Each month, you will be billed $81.32 to use their “resource center.” Again, no mention as to what the hell the resource center is, just that you will have to pay to be a member.
Aside from the hefty monthly fees, you will get a CD shipped to your house. This CD will contain useless eBooks about affiliate marketing. Remember the part where Scott says he gets paid to post links on Google? Well, what he really meant to say was that he PAYS GOOGLE to place ads and then could possibly make a commission off of a sale if the person who clicked the link (which costs YOU money) and made a purchase. That’s right, you don’t get paid to post links, you have to put money out to post links. And trust me when I say, it ain’t cheap. Finally, if our previous reviews on fake Google products are any indication, this CD will be riddled with trojans and viruses and will best be suited for an extra coaster for when you have guests come visit.
