You must have heard the expression, “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is”. But how do you know if it sounds too good to be true?. Most of the time we don’t and become a victim of a scam or fraud. Even the most shrewd individuals and business minded people don’t understand the exaggerated deals and offers. How to know when something sounds too good to be true is the first step to avoid a big loss of your income.
Be alert when you are offered a two to three hundred dollars service or a product for free if you buy the “other” main product or a program. This is one of the most common tactics. For example, a company will offer the set up of a website, a value of up to $300 for free, if you sign up with their program. Sounds familiar?
Be alert, when you are asked to sign up for this program right now to get a discount of two to three hundred dollars. This is a good one because now you are under pressure to buy this product; otherwise you are convinced that discount will be gone tomorrow
You are told that if you don’t sign up by the end of the day or an hour, you will not get this deal. Again another tactic to pressurize you and you must be alert to realize that you are being scamed.
You are promised that you will make money while you sleep. Well, it sounds pretty good but most of us are already making money while sleep by investing in CD’s, Stocks, Writing articles for ehow and other investments. Don’t get in to that trap.
You are asked to send your money quickly via wire transfer or overnight to get advantage of the deal.You are constantly reminded that your investment is totally risk free and you have nothing to loose with their offer
