Huge Monthly Incomes

I'm sure you've all seen the small ads in the papers claiming that you can earn hundreds or even thousands of dollars a month by working from home.

There are also similar contextual targeted ads around the internet, particularly on wide-spread affiliate networks such as Google AdSense.

So are these 'work at home' or 'home based businesses' opportunities genuine, or are they nothing more than an over-hyped 'get rich quick' ploy for a few marketers at the top of the chain?

These income programs or money-making systems often claim to be 'risk free', and may also claim to reveal secret methods to generate a guaranteed income.

The first thing to do when you come across such an 'opportunity' is to think it through. If profit was guaranteed why would anyone charge you to find out about it, indeed - if it was working for them WHY would they want to share it?

The simple answer to this is that these opportunities are often nothing more than eBook scams, similar to pyramid or ponzi schemes, were the money you pay for materials goes to the people at the top - leaving the people at the bottom out of pocket.

Never pay money for details on a job - would you do this in the normal world? No.
Never pay unless you know what you are buying.
Think - Is the opportunity too good to be true - in most cases the answer to this will be yes.
