I’ve just opened up a Bukisa and, like many of you reading this, would’ve jumped straight on and started typing away!
Before I stumbled across Bukisa I went on to a numrous number of website “claiming” that they would offer me money in exchange for my opinions, most of them survey web sites. This website seemed to be honest and reliable in what it was telling it’s customers. For instance it’s figures were not “make £2,000 a week!” If someone says that to you then you know it’s a scam.
How to spot a scam –
So how can you make sure you don’t put money in a scam? Well in my new book on money management, I list no fewer than 22 different scams which have some or all of the following features:
1. They usually arrive unsolicited via email, telephone, post or fax.
2. They ask for money upfront in return for a bumper payout in the (unspecified) future.
3. They promise super-high returns, far greater than the 3% you could earn in a top savings account.
4. They fail to explain how these handsome returns will be produced.
5. They claim secret, specialised or inside knowledge.
6. They promote the lure of huge profits for little effort.
7. They rely on bringing in more and more punters in order to keep the game going.
8. They don’t explain why you personally have been singled out for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
The 8 spottting technques that I have just shown you can apply to anything…from door to door sales managment to someone ringing you up offering you the latest tooth cleaning service…what, it happens!
Bukisa seems an honest and a reliable service to have at hand, I’ll be seeing how I get on and how much money I can make!
