Easy Google Profit Scam, Google Biz Kit / Treasure Chest / Money Tree Scams

Thanks for visiting Blogstorm, one of the worlds most popular blogs about internet marketing. There are no shortcuts to making money from Google but if you join the 5000+ people who subscribe to my free RSS feed (there is an email option too) you can learn how to make money from Google by using straightforward, natural SEO techniques.

Hundreds of people a month are searching for the phrase “Easy Google Profit Scam” and “Google Biz Kit Scam” on Google and Yahoo. About 8000 per month find their way onto my article about search engine submission being a scam so I decided it was time to create a real page explaining what the “Easy Google Profit Scam” is all about.

The basic principle is that a system, called Easy Google Profit I believe, promises to make money using Google. I’m not entirely sure what it does because the text is on  a sales letter page and I haven’t read one of those for years.

What I do know is that people are adding the word “scam” to the end of the search term which probably means they don’t trust it.

Perhaps anybody finding this page can shed some light on what the system does in the comments.

Update: May 11th
The BBB has more details:

On April 24, 2009 the Texas Attorney General’s Office announced charges for operating a fraudulent work-at-home scheme against Infusion Media Inc, GoogleTreasureChest.com, InternetIncomeInitiative.com, and Jonathan D. Eborn (“Defendants”), whose “GoogleMoneyTree.com” promised six-figure earnings for conducting specialized Google and Yahoo Internet searches. According to the state’s enforcement action, GoogleMoneyTree failed to clearly inform purchasers that they had been enrolled in monthly memberships and had only seven days to cancel their trial membership. Purchasers who failed to cancel within seven days were automatically charged $82 on their credit card statements each month. In addition to the unexpected credit card charges, customer complaints obtained by state investigators indicate that GoogleMoneyTree failed to actually send the “free kit” and refused to honor customer refunds. The state is seeking an injunction, civil penalties of up to $20,000 per violation of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act, as well as restitution for purchasers.

    It’s what affiliate marketers do to get people to read their sales letter, they name it ‘ProductName is a Scam’ but they actually try to sell it to you anyway – they tell you how it actually isn’t a scam.

  • http://internetmarketingsucks.com/blog/ Sucker

    Well I get a lot of spam emails about Easy Google Profit. Just the name sounds like a scam!

  • http://www.aojon.com Shoemoney Lies

    One of the scammy “Easy Google Profit” products was put together as an attempt to each people how to do Adsense Arbitrage:: that is, buying traffic from Google Adwords and then sending it to a page where the user is persuaded to click a Google Adsense ad. This practice is banned in Google’s Terms of Service and isn’t as easy to pull off as it was 1-2 years ago.

    It’s scare tactic, affiliate marketing. Try it with pills, credit , insurgence or whatever.

    Query: “Discount Vitamin X”

    Ad: Vitamin X Side Effects! Don’t buy Vitamin X without reading this first!

    Pitch: Side effects are actually very rare and mild. It’s a great product that’s changed my life. Click here to buy discount Vitamin X with free shipping!

    First off they use a time limit on an email you can get at, who knows when, from the time they send it to you. Then, when i wrote out a phony address it tried to charge me shipping and handling on some thing that first of all is supposed to be a download, and second of all is going somewhere that doesn’t exist. Then it struck me, “How the hell do they know my real name?! I’m not really listed anywhere on the net that would trace to this account!” I only later find out the email was sent from Las Vegas. I now have theories about mafia involvement. lol

  • EBT

    After trying several scams which my husband hope they weren’t I have learn this to be the absolute truth! If it sounds like a scam it’s most likely a SCAM 99.999999999%……

  • CAMMAN

    Anything with words, “Easy Profit” is bound to catch the attention of so many of us that are looking for alternative methods to supplement an additional income. RUN! Don’t walk for the nearest exit. Nothing in this life is ever “Easy”. Always look at the bottom of the page and you will find that Google does not involve itself with the creator of this ad. You will likely get bombarded with additional things (Hoops) you will have to jump through that serve nothing more than trying to get you to buy a product….Theirs! Beware.

  • R Smith

    Easy Google Profit Scam is what it is. It is a deceptive ad to pull in suckers like myself by offering a free cd guarenteed to show you how to make money from the internet. Once you sign up for this you better have read the terms and agreement plus you cannot forget that within the terms it tells you that you are signing up for a membership which must be cancelled within ten days or you will be charged $39.90/mo. In my case I forgot about this part and 10 days after I received the disc I was charged the $39.90 (not refundable for any reason even if you are not 100% satisfied)even though I have yet to look at the disc or sign up for an account. Like the saying goes “nothing in life is free” especially when you don’t read the fine print!

    • okorie

      Well look at the CD and tell us wha the hell it is!!

  • oh my!

    How come when people get scammed they do not give details of what they got, or what the scam is about? I mean it would help everybody that found this site and is doing investigation on the company. I googled and found this site, but only after first getting spam email, which I go through every once in while just in case a legitimate email got misdirected. I opened it up because it WORKED! it caught my interest and opened it(step one) step 2 was to click more information, which I did, I came to site from http://www.searchmarketingppc.com which I had to look at fine print at bottom to see the actual url is https://c3max83.executiveprocessing.com/default.aspx/?ref=CD31&pid=CD11182&utm_campaign=CD31&utm_source=CD11182

    so its just a redirector or somethign like for reasons I believe to make it harder to find the company, ONLY WAY!! i was able to find this site was to copy in terms and conditions the 1.99 charge with key word google(It does not say software name or easy google profit) then added words 39.90 month, I came up with “several” options, then I added word scam to it, AH HAH!! about 500,000 search results. Well I clicked on most obvious closest one being scammed by easy google profit, and low and behold I ended up at several sites where the name came to light, once I re-googled it to easy google profit I found this site. So it becomes a hastle to do the research because of spoofs, misdirection and basicly slide of hand. They do their job well and its to give this big impression of false hopes. So if you been scammed and you REALLY! are concerned, tell us the links they give you, the emails they send you, give us the download links, give us the access codes. If its a scam then give these people the opportunity to see how and why its a scam. But not telling the people whats on google cd, or website and allowing access is allowign other people to get scammed.

  • Mr. Slag

    I agree with you above. But what this really comes down too is simple. Use your head, less than 1 percent of anyone anywhere is making good money by staying at home doing nothing (and you know what I mean by good money). If you think you are gonna get rich, or hell, even make enough to pay all your bills and still have money left over by using a GET EASY CASH NOW AND FAST etc etc etc spam/scams….then you might as well get the LOSE 30 PNDS IN 2 WEEKS, INCREASE THE SIZE OF YOUR ” ” ” “, GET 1000 $$ FOR ANSWERING A SURVEY, and the WIN A FREE PLAYSTATION. Ive made my point, just stay away from it and think before you click.

  • Mr. Salesman

    I put my resume out on craigslist for multiple jobs, and I started to recieve emails from this so called “employment agentcy” I had applied for a position with on craigslist. As time went on they kept sending me theese emails that had messages addressed to me reguarding my possible employment with a never to be named specific employer, they kept saying they would be in touch soon, but I had never recieved any form of contact from them, until a final email stating they have had no word from their client reguarding my application. “ok I never filled out an application….HMMM?”
    then they considered I maybe try working for my self, they said LOTS of qualified people are taking this route because of difficulty finding employment elsewhere, then followed the link to the “employment agentcy’s website” which is http://www.skyshout.com/google, wich led me to https://secure.esecureorder.com/2egoogle/?cid=2693&FiliAff=7730&subid=12042&source=pjn&MONAFFSID=filitrack+.
    Not an employment agentcy period! I’m in sales and understand marketing very well, most people would fall for this, I googled it before entering any links on the website because I smelled SCAM, but unfortunately I think many others will smell the same.
    Four letters SCAM! Nothing is just that easy!

  • Julian

    I just waited for the timer to run out on the Easy Google Profit registration page. It happened while I was viewing a different window, but I was redirected back to the Easy Google Profit registration page with the message, “Time expired, Apply now.” This thing is such a scam.

  • http://googlescam will

    dude that thing is a scam i read the policy they take out $1.99 the first day then fourteen days after that they take $49.99 a month after that they take $99.99 out its scam

  • Les

    I was looking up info on office etiquette and an ad popped up from a guy who made money from a Google Biz Kit. You can read the story here: http://www.joshmadecash.com/?s=VC_Pop

    It seemed like it could have been legit, as most scams do, so I clicked on the link that he provided to “order” the kit, and it led me to the Easy Google Profit site to put in your credit card and home info.
    https://www.securecartcenter.com/Nzg3OHwxOTUyfDI3NDM4OHx2Mg==/dfium4b9/g
    I didn’t put in my info, I just decided to scroll down to see if there were terms and conditions, and there were- after you sign up you’re giving pre-consent to be charged for future goods and signing up for a membership that you will be charged $72.21 after 7 days if you don’t cancel. While they do give you the info to cancel, it’s still paying for things that you didn’t need or ask for- you just wanted the little kit that the guy used and make your money, not a membership or other services! As much as I would LOVE to make more money without having to go work everyday or having to resort to illegal practices (lol), there’s just no real easy fix as this ad suggested. However, I see blogging and Adsense with Google and other sites to be very straight up and legitimate as another source of income. If I had the time, I surely would express myself and get paid for it! I hope that this comment helps someone, because it has helped me in not making a fool out of myself and my money :).

  • http://www.xeltek.com MGA

    I got sick and tired of those ads such as “Easy Google Profit”. But unfortunately every one out of thousand people fall into those scams. Never read those ads, too. But believe, it was never been that easy to make $300 per day from online. They are totally scams…

  • Don’t do it

    Here are the terms they have for the charging of your credit card (notice how they write out the whole number to make it harder to read):

    Upon submitting a request for Membership, a Member ID and Password are assigned to you and can be used to gain access to googletreasurechest.com. The initial shipping and handling charge of one dollars and ninety seven cents, includes the google treasure chest kit as well as seven days worth of access to the online directories and training. After seven days, if you choose not to cancel, you will be billed your first monthly membership fee of seventy two dollars and twenty one cents for the membership fee for the googletreasurechest.com membership. Membership fees will be charged to the credit card used by you to complete the transaction. You have also unlocked a fourteen-day trial and twenty one-day trial to the Fraud SafeLockID and GrantSpring for just $19.95 and $14.95 a month thereafter (shows as “SafeLockID” and “GrantSpring”) should you choose not to cancel. Prior charges for all programs are non-refundable but bonus subscriptions can be cancelled and future charges stopped at any time by calling toll-free 866.951.1406 Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm. All offers come with a monthly newsletter.

    If you choose to sign up for this product and pay the recurring monthly charges using a debit card you hereby provide pre-authorization and consent that googletreasurechest.com may charge seventy two dollars and twenty one cents on a monthly basis. You may stop payment on any pre-authorized charge by notifying googletreasurechest.com at least three business days prior to the scheduled charge date. You agree your pre-authorization and written consent to charge your debit card is given in electronic form by submitting the request for the membership, and that an electronic signature is sufficient to authenticate your authorization to charge the debit card. You further agree that these terms and conditions shall be your copy of your pre-authorization for the debit card.

    Upon completion of the order form, should your credit card be declined, we may, at our option continue to try to authorize your purchase on future dates. Your acceptance of these terms indicates your additional acceptance that should your purchase of either the shipping for your free kit, or your monthly membership fee eventually approve, you will accept and approve those charges to your method of payment.

  • DEL

    Thanks Folks for the Info.
    I too was sucked in thinking that, “hey google is a reputable company and this sounds like a good deal.” I fortunately read your comments before I received anything and cancelled the thing imediately. I should know better, but you would think sometimes that someone would be upfront with you. I’m guilty of thinking that everyone has integrity and are forthright in their dealings.
    Thanks again!

  • edmina

    i signed up 20 mins ago..i dnt care abt the 1.99 but how do i stop any money from coming out nof my account???????

  • http://www.easycashpath.com Gantman

    I ordered a google business kit some time ago. Finally, received a CD in the mail today. Contains a gazillion ebooks and some useless applications. No direction on where to begin.

    In my quest for a home-based opportunnity, I found something that I think I like. It’s a website that initially provides a free review of some common home based business opportunities. I was then offered the opportunity to take a home-based business course for a one time payment of $87. It’s a go at your pace course with audio tutorials, ebooks, and clear direction on where the money making on the net can be found. They make no false promises and claim that real money opportunities take time. One aspect of the course that I’ve been using is the Affiliate Marketing. Not having alot of success though, because it involves Pay-Per-Click. Getting more clicks than actual sales. Don’t think that’s my calling. Here’s the link to the course: Net Salaries

  • Erule

    I’d like to echo DEL’s comment. Got caught up in thinking that this might be okay, and then found these comments. Thanks for helping me avoid losing more than $2, guys!

  • DEL

    How to stop this! When you signed up, go back to the same url that you signed up on (because there are several different people doing this) At the bottom where it says terms and conditions click on it. In the first several paragraphs you should see an 800 number to call. Call that number, they’ll ask for your name and address and maybe your email. You tell them that you wish to cancel your membership, and make sure you get a confirmation number. Hope this will Help

  • Sandar

    This whole pop up window is a scam!!

    http://www.joshmadecash.com

    After looking at it, I don’t know how anyone would fall for it.
    I mean, it looks like something out of the Onion.
    Quite laughable.

  • Butler

    First clue.

    Internet Explorer brought up an error page on redirect that said that the site in question had a certificate from a source that was not legitimate and in most cases is used to either phish for information or scam people.

    It was at that point, and prior to my actually going to the page I knew I was dealing with a scam artist.

    Second Clue

    Las Vegas. 98% of my searches for home based businesses that I determined were scams or were reported as scams all had business addresses in Las Vegas. There must be laws in Vegas that make it easier to run a scam/theft ring on the internet.

    Third Clue

    “A Chirstian mom is making $1000 a week on our program!!” Naturally they are expecting people to believe that if a Christian mother is making money on their “program” its legit.

    http://www.bethsmoney.com/2/index.php?t202id=54105&t202kw=foxnews is the link I was led to originally in my ongoing search for credible money making opportunities. I have yet to find one, and I am fortunate in that I have never lost even one dollar to one of these scams.

    HINT (very important)

    Most of these scamming bastards thrive on the recurring revenue trick. They give you a free CD if you pay for shipping with a valid credit card. Beat them at their own game. I always use a real credit card, however it is in reality a credit card that is purchased with a predetermined limit. Gift credit cards so to speak. I use an American Express credit card with a $50 value. When you enter this number to purchase from a credible source such as Amazon.com the transaction works perfectly. When you use such a card on a scam site, an error will pop up saying that the payment was denied or rejected. They wont allow you to use a credit card that will ultimately run out of money. Justs something for everyone to remember, and it might I hope save you and me some money.

  • FYI

    Also check out:
    http://matthewsmoney.com
    It is just like:
    http://www.joshmadecash.com
    except it is a different person. They both received the exact same checks, too. Both ads say they are from Grand Junction, CO. Funny, I live in Grand Junction. It’s a small city. I’d think there would be something in the mocal media about these guys if it were legit.

  • http://nowebbit Scam

    Another website which is about the same: http://www.kevinlifeblog.com

    If they were legit, they will not have to resort to such methods to get money outta people’s pocket. Verdict: Scam!

  • Superman07

    I first came across this Easy Google Profit thing from an ad i saw on facebook. I’ve seen a million other ads saying you can make $5000/month “easily,” and thought this is definitely a scam, but decided to click on it just to see what they have to say about it. This is the link I came across: http://www.andreasmoneyblog.com/mystory.html?t202id=92497&t202kw=
    I found it very interesting that each picture posted on that person’s blog sends you to the Easy Google profit link (http://www.andreasmoneyblog.com/mystory.html?t202id=92497&t202kw=). I read the comments on her blog and they were all saying good things. I tried to post a comment, asking how this actually works because it was not fully explained in the blog, but a window popped up saying “Thank you for your comment! Because of spam I manually view each comment!” This is a clear indication that this thing is a SCAM. There were only good comments and absolutely nothing critical of Easy Google Profit.
    In conclusion, as everyone else said: DO NOT BELIEVE THIS STUFF!! It’s all fake; in this life you cannot get anything without working for it!

  • http://x mer

    hi great info, yes, but does one actually receive cheques from google? (after avoiding the repeating subscription scam?) what are they talking about?

  • http://www.easycashpath.com Gantman

    Finally made a profit yesterday after a few days in the program: http://snoeug.netsalaries.com/. I spent $87 on Tuesday and had $85 in my clickbank account yesterday. Still haven’t broken even, but encouraged. I think that all of these businesses probably work, but it isn’t as easy as one might think.

    I tried Google Money Tree, and I think, they provided some useful things, but no clear guidance or direction. Kinda been on the hunt for some online opportunities while looking for employment as well. I don’t remember how I came across an online opportunity and paid a 1 time payment $87 for it earlier this week. What I received with the $87 was video tutorials, ebooks, customized affiliate links, and sound advise. The site made no false get rich quick promises and advises that it takes time to make money. It took me a few days to actually begin to see a profit. As of Friday, I am $85 richer. This at least makes it legit for me. Some of the opportunities are legit, but it does take hardwork. Marketing products, making your info. unique vs. the competition, etc. Beware of any site that claims there is easy money. Money only yield itself to those who are willing to go after it. So is everything in life.

  • mr idiot

    how do you cancel the membership i just signed up and handt realised it was a scam till last second and i feel suck a idiot i hate myself now. please some one help me

  • mr idiot
  • http://www.FreeWorkAtHomeReview.com Jason

    All of the Google Money Making products that I have ever came across are a scam, except for 1. I am talking about Chris Carpenters Google Cash Detective, which is not a scam but not priced anything like these $1.95 S&H Fee Scams. Just read the Privacy Policy on any one of these (Easy Google Profit, EZ Net Income, Work With Google etc.) and it will tell you that they sell or give your information to other 3rd parties.

    That is unethical business practices in my eyes because they now have your name and credit card info on file and are going to hound you as long as they can. When you buy one of these you’ll get a cd with a couple audio files telling you how they make so much money but dont give you any real resources for newbies.

    The only legitimate way to make money online with google is with google adsense. I’m actually surprised these sites have not been shut down by google or taken off of their network for using their name on a horrible product.

    Like I said prior, Chris Carpenter is the only affiliate marketer that I know of with a legitimate program to teach you how to make money online, but he rolls it out every now and again.

    Avoid these google scams if you havent fallen into it already.

  • JEazy

    son of a bitch, i just decided to get that kit, now i want to cancel. i just call that number to do so?

  • Gantman

    Just call the number on the CD they sent you. Although I don’t promote this product, I don’t think everyone should panic. At least take the time to explore what was sent to you and make an informed decision. The part that I personally don’t like, though, is the monthly billing. I missed this important piece of information.

  • Stu

    Firstly, thank you all so much for pointing this out to me, I owe you one.

    I fell for this 5 days ago but luckily realised the scam issue a few minutes after. If in doubt have your credit/debit card cancelled and order a new one from your bank. I did this the day after signing up, the $2 startup fee was billed but not yet approved. Supposedly though you get some phone calls from these people pleading for a card to bill but big deal, I’ll post back here in another 2 weeks to let you know what (if anything) happens.

    I didn’t bother phoning them to unsubscribe, somehow I don’t think they’ll do it anyway, why suddenly trust them now? I sent an email but got the auto-reply saying I’m not a member. Good, that’s how I like it! Also I’m yet to get the startup kit anyway but I’ve heard it’s nothing special. More unfortunate souls out there will innocently wait for the package to arrive and then it’s too late because you’re out of money.

    The lesson is don’t be a fool and give away any card details to complete strangers!

    The whole Google thing just caught my eye but never again I swear it! Thanks again.

  • Hobo

    Did what Butler tried and used a gift card with a small balance left and it was declined..That was my first clue.
    Second clue, I enlarged all the checks for $5,000.00 on the different sites and low and behold they all have the same check number and client ID.
    Total scam…run away as fast as you can.

  • Robben

    There is no such thing as “easy Google Profit”. I received an email that stated I was eligable to work with GOOGLE. It stated that the requirements for me would be posting links on Google and getting paid for them…by Google. I requested a membership. Which by the way…we will bill you $36.77 per month. I gave them my credit card number for shipping & handleing on a disk that would get me started. Next I received an email from a company named Product Resource Network. It had a link (which did not work) that I was to go to in order to get started. I went to their website. http://www.productresourcenetwork.com. and it had information in reguards to SELLING products for a list of companies. The add I answered and signed up for stated “you don’t have to sell anything”. I call the phone number included in the email and was told that they are not connected to GOOGLE in any way. And that I had to purchase items from their list of companies, have them delivered to me & sell them on Ebay. This has noting to do with posting ads. This is a scam to get you to sign up with them. They said I was not charged $1.95 and that they did not ship me anything. DO NOT GIVE ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION TO THESE PEOPLE. IT IS A SCAM!!

    Oh dear, I just had to laugh at this scam. Was on Google looking for something when this one site caught my eye. Went to go look at it, and though “SCAM!!!” So I googled it, and….

    Found: matthewsmoney.com and http://www.JoshMadeCash.com

    lol, IDENTICAL sites with different names and pictures, etc. And they take your internet address and make as if they come from your City/Town!

    I am glad my website does not use such illegal tactics!!

    Don’t be scammed!

    Google Profit, Google Treasure Chest, Google Home Business Kit, etc. are all the same. A scam product being resold by dozens of affiliates.
    The idea is to make AdWords ads directing “clickers” to a AdSense page and hope they click on some of the ads. Hopefully, the revenue from the ads will offset the cost of the AdWords campaigns. This is called the AdSense Arbitrage model for making money online. Like another commenter noted, this was a way to make money a few years ago, but it has too many risks of loss these days. (And is against Googles TOS to boot).
    The kicker with these “kits” is getting out of them once you sign up. There is a low introductory charge ($1.95 for instance), but then a steep monthly charge a few days later ($72.21 is one I read). In addition, some companies sign new customers up for other services as well which each cost an additional fee.
    To cancel, often one has to send a certified letter with the received materials enclosed. If a customer attempts to block the charges with their bank or credit card company, they are threatened with legal action.
    The safest bet is to avoid these types of scams entirely. There is plenty of free information online on how to make money. Google things like article marketing, affiliate marketing, internet marketing and so forth. Most “guides”, especially older ones, are free for joining an email list.

    If its sounds to good to be true, it most likely is! Nothing in life is for free and those money making systems only get those people to receive your money when you join.

    – inform yourself on how to protect yourself online, never give out personal information to a stranger, do NOT make to many things (i.e. your telephone number, address) about yourself public online – nowadays scammers can find alot of details about a person online. Most scammers operate worldwide and alot out of West African countries. Just google your own e-mail and you see what people may find out already about you – this should be a sign to better protect yourself!
    Alot of online scammers steel from inocent people the picture and idendity to defraud other people. I don’t want to scare anyone off – only educate and inform you.

    What can you do to defend yourself from scams, frauds and identity theft?

    http://www.consumerfraudreporting.org/defend_yourself.php

    Whether you think you have been the victim of a fraud or scam or want to be proactive in protecting yourself, here is a list of specific and simple actions that you can take, some just once, to protect yourself and your family! We have ranked them in order that you should take them:

    -Don’t use or carry a checkbook. Pay by cash or credit card. Paying your bills through your bank or credit union’s online bill paying service (which is usually free) is much safer than mailing a check.

    -Buy and use a paper shredder. Shred any documents that have your social security number or other financial information, such as your bank account numbers, credit card numbers etc. identity thieves actually go through homeowner’s trash to obtain personal information. If you don’t have a shredder, burn these documents completely in the fireplace.

    -Freeze your credit! It prevents scammers from opening unauthorized accounts in your name. Even if your state is one of the few that doesn’t allow a freeze, thanks to pressure from consumer advocacy groups, you can still freeze your files at the three major credit bureaus. See this page for more information about both freezes.

    -Sign up on the Do-Not-Call List
    Sign up to block credit card offers from arriving in your mailbox.

    -Don’t carry your Social Security card with you. When you renew your driver’s license, make sure the DMV does not use your Social Security number as your driver’s license number.

    -Use a separate email address when you post messages to any public forum, such as newsgroups and mailing lists. Free email accounts from Yahoo and Hotmail are perfect for this. Never use your personal email address for this purpose: you will be flooded with spam. You can periodically check this email account to see what’s spam and what isn’t. A bonus is that Yahoo’s spam blocker is better than those from most ISP’s! And your main personal email address won’t be as clogged with spam. Some ISP’s, like AOL and BellSouth.net give you multiple email accounts free with your paid service.

    -Don’t give out any financial information, such as checking account and credit card numbers; and especially your social Security number; on the phone or online, unless you initiate the call and know the person or organization you’re dealing with. Don’t give that information to any stranger. In general, it is only required for medical providers, banks, mortgages and credit card companies.

    -Don’t fill out the “win a vacation” and other promotions you see in stores and shopping malls. That will just get you on a junk mailing list and guarantee calls from persistent, high-pressure salesmen.

    -Don’t pre-print your driver’s license, telephone or Social Security numbers on your checks. And in states that want to use your social security number as your driver’s license number, insist on another method – most allow it.

    -Report lost or stolen checks immediately. The bank can block payment on the check numbers that are missing. Also, review new checks you receive, to make sure none has been stolen in transit.

    -Store new and cancelled checks, credit card statements, medical bills, anything with confidential information, in a safe place and shred them when you are done with them.

    -Guard your Personal Identification Numbers (PINs) for your ATM and credit cards, and don’t write on or keep your PINs with your cards. You should also guard your ATM and credit card receipts. Thieves can use them to access your accounts.

    -Be creative in selecting Personal Identification Numbers for your ATM and credit cards, and passwords that enable you to access other accounts. Don’t use birth dates, part of your Social Security Number or driver’s license number, address, or children’s or spouse’s names. Remember: If someone has stolen your identity, he or she probably has some or all of this information.

    -Use a good anti-virus software, anti-adware software and a hardware firewall on your computer, and keep them up to date. You need all three. Almost all modern Routers (Dlink, LinkSys, NetGear, Buffalo, Airlink, etc.) have a hardware firewall built in. See the left side of this page for the current recommendation for ant-virus / anti-malware programs.

    -Don’t put outgoing mail in or on your mailbox. Drop it into a secure, official Postal Service collection box. Thieves may use your mail to steal your identity.
    If regular bills fail to reach you, call the company to find out why. Someone may have filed a false change-of-address notice to divert your information to his or her address.

    -If your bills include suspicious charges, don’t ignore them. Instead, investigate immediately to head off any possible fraud before it occurs.

    -Check your credit report regularly. Federal law allows you to obtain one from credit report from each of the 3 major credit reporting agencies per year. See this page for more information.

    -There are services online, some free, such as SneakMail that provide you with disposable addresses that can be deleted if they begin to receive spam messages.

    -The disposable email addresses forwards email to a real email address of yours, but the sender can not see this. If you create a unique address for each email newsletter or forum you subscribe to you can discard the address is it gets too much spam and just start using another email address.

    -NEVER buy anything from a company that sends you spam. Don’t even visit their sites or ask for more information. It is like feeding a stray cat. Give it one morsel of food, and it will be there all the time (and that may be fine with cats, but NO one wants spammers at the doorstep!). Remember, since they send out millions of spam emails, they only need a tiny fraction of responses to be profitable.
    And if that doesn’t convince you, consider this: the vast majority of spam “offers” are in fact scams!

    -Set up filters in your email program. Outlook does this quite easily. When you open an email and realize that it is spam, just click on Actions then Create Rule, then select an appropriate action, such as “from” then click “Move e-mail to folder” and select the “Deleted Items” folder. That’s it! You’ll never receive email from that particular address or subject again! More anti-spam filtering tips and information.

    -If you have a website, do not post your address in the HTML “mail-to” format, otherwise you will be spammed, since address-harvesting spiders (programs) extract your email address from the website and add it to the spammer’s lists. Instead use feedback forms through PHP, ASP, or JSP that hide the email address, OR post the email address as a GIF (image file).

    -Check out this list of tips on evaluating email, letters and phone calls you receive for potential scams.

    -Finally, if it seems to good to be true… IT IS! No one is going to send you a pile of money from a dead Nigerian president, no lottery is going to make you a winner from a “randomly selected from a database of email addresses”. Multi-level marketing IS A SCAM, ALL psychics are nothing more than conmen, and you can not make big money from “passive residual income in a few hours of your spare time each day”. And there is no Easter Bunny.

    The bottom line is, if you want to live like a Prince or Princess in a fairy tale, then use common sense, work hard and work smart to achieve your goals.

    After reading this comment posted above:

    “FYI 09/04/2009 at 8:29 pm
    Also check out:
    http://matthewsmoney.com
    It is just like:
    http://www.joshmadecash.com
    except it is a different person. They both received the exact same checks, too. Both ads say they are from Grand Junction, CO. Funny, I live in Grand Junction. It’s a small city. I’d think there would be something in the mocal media about these guys if it were legit.”

    I hit the link and guess what — both ads say they are from MY town in NJ instead of Grand Junction, CO!!!! What a coinsidence!!!!!

    What a crock!!

  • MR KO

    It is a SCAM!!!!! As i was on a web site named Datpiff.com i saw this pop up http://www.greggetscash.com/index2.php i saw the video and looked at the comments that so called members left…. Then i saw this http://www.JoshMadeCash.com.. they had the same comments!!!!! What really caught my eye was when i saw………. Googleâ„¢ does not endorse or sponsor this site and is in no way affiliated with Google ATM. This was at the bottom of the Google Biz Kit web site!!! It is a SCAM!!!!!

  • deano

    Now this is how to deal with these scumbags:

    1)Search for “Action Mouse Mover” free trial download.
    2)Find one of their sponsored ads on Google. (They have to pay Google anything from $0.10 to $1+ per click)
    3) Set up your trial version of Action Mouse Mover by positioning your cursor over their link. Hit F2 on your keyboard. Add 2-3 sec waiting time in the wait box.
    4) Click on their sponsored link.
    5) Position your cursor over the “back” button on your browser. Hit F2 again and add 2-3 seconds depending on the speed of your internet connection.
    6) Go back to the first page.
    7) Set the repeat cycle to do this clicking for say 2-3 times (to check if everything is OK)
    8) If you happy with the performance start the program, set it to repeat every 5-6 seconds and leave your PC on over night.
    9) Hopefully they will be confronted by a huge clicking bill from Google.
    10) Pass this remedy on to all your friends and put these scumbags out of business.

    (Make sure “AMM” is active before hitting F2 every time by clicking on its tab in the task bar)

  • Dede

    AHHHHH!!! i just fell for this too – STUPID STUPID!!! and now the “company’s operating hours” are done for the weekend. i’m screwed!!! how can i get out of this?! do i need to cancel my visa??

  • Stu

    Dede, that’s what I did, do it ASAP though, I think I got it cancelled before the $2 fee was authorised so it should be ok. The bank might tell you something like the fee transaction was made but not yet approved, close the card before it’s approved and just get a new one. It’s been over a week now since I fell for it and I haven’t heard from the scammers so far or got the so-called kit.

  • Mike

    I also just fell for this and paid the $1.95 start up fee. Can I just call tomorrow and have them cancel everything? I don’t care about the $2.00, just don’t want to be billed anything else! Please e-mail me and let me know! Please!!

  • Mike

    My email is kurekm@indiana.edu

    None of the scams work. The only way to make money off

    I tried calling that 866 number to cancel today and all i got was an operator telling me their business hours. Is the only way to stop them from billing me is to contact my credit card company and tell them to not pay these scammers?

    If anybody is lost in how to make money online just click on my name above this post and go to my website. Maverick Money Makers is the club that taught me Affiliate Marketing. It is not some get rich quick scheme that promises thousands of dollars a day, but rather a club that will teach you how to do this over time. You must walk before you can run just as in any “Job”. I have been making roughly $300 a week all while I’m still working 50 hours a week at my current full time job. If you have no ambition, desire, or motivation you will probably not succeed in any real way to make it big. But I like to beleive that I am living proof that it works because if I can make $300 a week in just a few hours a day after I get home from work within my first three months of starting, than I know it can be done. If you want more personal training and tips I am also willing to give anybody who becomes a member of Maverick Money Makers through my site personal support. You can email me through my website or this blog, but you must sign up through my website or I will not be able to help you as much. If you don’t like what Maverick Money Makers has to offer after a purchase you have 60 days to get a full refund, no questions asked. There are other communities that will teach you how to make money online, and they are legitimate, but these are fairly hard to find if your’re just starting out.

  • Ze Ze

    My dumb self actually bought the software for 1.99 before looking up if it was a scam or not.. so i am waiting on the arrival of the cd thats going to make me rich lol…hopefully..

  • oops.

    Yeah I did the sign up first and check it out later thing, too. Not smart. I’m taking someone else’s advice from here and cancelling the card and requesting a new one. I don’t believe they’d actually follow through with not charging me if it is a scam.
    As for the whole
    ‘m from your city” thing….yeah. I am an idiot. Michael’s Cash Blog says he s from tucson but I saw real trees in the picture by his brand new car. Umm…that picture was taken on the east coast, not the west, or it would have been palm trees. Too bad I didn’t look closely before I signed up.

    Just did a search for Google Biz Kit and found this page. They need to be more careful with their ad copy. The gal selling the Biz Kit has two separate histories on the same page. In one she is originally from Spokane WA and in the other she grew up in San Diego CA :P

    Here’s the link to the ad: http://www.stephblogs.com/?s=VC_PopW2

  • Candidus

    Their customer service number is rarely available, stating that a representative will be with you shortly for longer than most people will stay on the line.

    It was available immediately after their rep called me to set me up for their program. Coincidence? I think not.

    Additionally this number only allows you to cancel GoogleTreasureChest and SafeLockID. Not GrantSpring. You have to call a seperate number to cancel them, which they gave me. It is 1-888-247-2155.

    I cancelled my CC just to be on the safe side, since I do not believe their cancellation numbers to be worth a damn.

    Thanks all who posted here. Glad I wasn’t the only sucker.

    I sent google an email stating that I filled out their imformation but, my computer

    YES SCAM!!!!

    http://www.marylifeblog.com/index.php?sub=vccpafdd

    Compare these two blogs about it- something is just too similar…. could it be that they are the same with different pictures!?

    I wonder if Google even knows about this? Branding is very specific, if you click on Josh’s profile to view it, you end up on a mad sales page with “Google” written on it, but not exactly the same typeface and also outlined, which I have never seen the real “Google” do.

    It’s obviously a hoax, and I bet it has nothing to do with Google.

  • David

    People this is a SCAM!!! Let me prove it, if you go to our friends website, who supposedly made 1000’s of dollars apparently doing nothing more but sitting in front of his computer for a few hours, http://www.JoshMadeCash.com/. If you look at the bank statement, that statement is FAKE, look at the dates of the statement. It starts out 12/12/2008, then jumps to 12/10/2008, then the next transaction is on 12/24/2008, then 12/24/2008 again. See something wrong?? Yeah the dates are off, bank statements only go in order and this statements dates are WRONG, WHY?? Because it was made up!! Now lets look at the balances, it jumps from 11,0000 to 14,000 from 12/12/2008 to 12/10/2008, then jumps to 22,000, where did that jump come from?? It doesn’t make sence and it was made on a computer, so is this a scam?? YES!!!! STAY AWAY!!!

Thanx for the advise.

  • Potts

    Well… I found a site called ‘http://www.joshmadecash.com’ which basically tells you about Google Biz Kit which allows you to make money by posting links online and only costs $1.97 for shipping and handling charges of said Google Biz Kit. So I clicked the link and it took my to https://www.securecartcenter.com/Nzg3OHwxOTUyfDI3NDM4OHx2Mg==/atjem4b9/g
    Before I did anything, I read the terms and conditions located at the bottom of the page which says, and I quote:
    “…The initial shipping and handling charge of one dollars and ninety seven cents, includes the google treasure chest kit as well as seven days worth of access to the online directories and training. After seven days, if you choose not to cancel, you will be billed your first monthly membership fee of seventy two dollars and twenty one cents for the membership fee for the googletreasurechest.com membership. Membership fees will be charged to the credit card used by you to complete the transaction. You have also unlocked a fourteen-day trial and twenty one-day trial to the Fraud SafeLockID and GrantSpring for just $38.84 and $24.87 a month thereafter (shows as “SafeLockID” and “GrantSpring”) …”
    So to cut an already long story short… SCAM!!!

  • http://www.FreeWorkAtHomeReview.com Jason

    When you have recurring fees on a purchase of somebody’s credit card and you hide it in the “terms of agreement” link that is in size 2 font, all the way at the bottom of the page & hidden by other links, I consider it a SCAM. If a company does not tell you upfront about charges that you occur that is unethical, and not a good practice of business.

    I purchased this product and did not receive anything for almost a month so I notified my credit card company, about 10 days later I got a CD in the mail. This was supposed to be my “Money Making Kit” and all it was is some guy talking about affiliate marketing but selling his product by spamming everybody who’s email address they could acquire. I tried to login to the “Members Area” but all that would come up was the Page Not Found site. This is when I called the credit card company and had them issue me a new card and threw the CD in the trash.

    As I said in an earlier post that there are many legitimate and ethical ways of making money on the Internet. Just click on my name and you will find quite a few offers that guarantee your money back if you’re not satisfied. I have tried all of the products personally and currently making around $300 a week but on the rise as of this past week. I have been learning for 3 months to get to this point though, and it took a lot of hours and hard work. Any legitimate way of making money online takes actual work, but not the labor kind of work in your normal 9-5 job. With the right people guiding you and determination you have to succeed almost anybody can do this, and I actually enjoy most of it. I take satisfaction when I make a sale on my website and I don’t even have ship something out or file any paperwork. I just get paid for it.

  • lou

    I Am another idiot who fell for this .Did you get taken for IPLAN and FRESHKEYWORDS also? I did…Beware!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://www.FreeWorkAtHomeReview.com Jason

    No I did not fall for those, but I did try “Home Cash Course” and it’s not anything what it says. Although that is the course that I first bought and found out exactly what Affiliate Marketing (also known as Network Marketing or Internet Marketing etc.) was. After I had spent an additional $300 on useless products that i didn’t need, all after the initial $50 purchase they then told me I would have to spend more money for “pay per click” marketing. These are the kind of purchases that 95% of work at home job websites will lure you into making after the initial purchase.

    You see, most of these websites are selling you the idea of Affiliate Marketing but will give you no real direction of where to go. Affiliate Marketing is when you get paid a commission for any sales of a product or service. You have an affiliate link that you put on your website and when people click through your affiliate link on your site and make a purchase, you get a commission on that sale.

    It can be very confusing when you just start out because there are so many different aspects of it, and if you don’t have somebody to ask questions when you are confused or poor customer service it can be discouraging at times. I have been fortunate enough that I have had some good people teaching me and give me a lot of support.

    Twitter is the newest and fastest way to make money online right now. It is growing more and more rapidly every day. I just started on it Saturday (April 25th) and have already made over $200 from the traffic I’ve been getting. Today is only the Monday After (April 27th) and the people following me are rising by the minute.. no lie. If you want to learn how to do this yourself i suggest using the same thing I did because it really works, and I myself thought that I would definitely be asking for my refund on this one. I guess not. Visit http://www.freeworkathomereview.com/Twitter_Traffic_Machine.html and you can see how I started.

  • D

    SCAM, SCAM, SCCAMMMMMMMMMMMMM… I tried to play along by chatting with the customer rep on the website. The rep didn’t even answer none of my questions. Everything is automated. I mean, if this was real, you think they be advertising it in such way. This would be all over TV, local neighborhood, non-profit org, job agency. This is common sense people, it don’t get more common. Is like Mr. Trump offering a HS drop out a 6 figure salary to join his team, but all he needs to do is send $2 S&H free.

    Look. This site…
    http://60kemployment.com/employment/job.php
    and this…
    http://www.joshmadecash.com/
    has the same guy, but 2 different names and locations.
    Josh and David must be twins.
    Anyway. These are obvious scams. Google does not pay you to post links. You use google to post links for other sites. Other sites like Clickbank pay you. Google pays you if you use their adsense program, which is not posting links. I have used both Google adsense and Google adwords. I have made money on both sides. It is not as simple as the scammers would like you to think, otherwise they would be secretly doing it, instead of trying to take money showing other people how to do it. There are some experts out there who are selling legitimate information that can help you make money. I have spent the last few years buying both the good and the bad. Now it is east for me to spot them. Bottom line. There is absolutely nothing any of them can teach you that you can’t find for free. There are no secrets. What they are selling you is the convenience of not having to look for it yourself and also for mentoring, so you don’t give up. There are legitimate gurus out there, but anything asking for more than 30 buck every month is trying to milk you.
    Anything telling you you will make thousands a month from posting links is a scam. It is possible to make a lot with original content or a real service you provide.

  • leanna

    absolutely a scam. i was able to find two seperate “statements” that were exactly alike, but one was from the husband and one from the wife. they both worked the same job at the pipe company? doubt it. and then things that should’ve been the same weren’t…their new car after 8 months? two different vehicles. nice try, guys.

    Definitions

    As used in this Agreement, the following definitions will apply:

    “Agreement” shall mean these Terms and Conditions (including any terms incorporated by hyperlink). “Client”, “I”, “you” or “your” shall mean the person or persons using, or subscribing to this website. “We”, “us”, “the company” or “our”, shall mean googletreasurechest.com and its owners. “Site” shall mean a World Wide Web Site, and depending on the context, refers to the back office administration web site, the sponsor’s web site, or the affiliate’s web site.

    In some cases, the owners, originators, founders, developers, those that give testimonials and marketers of this product may use a ‘pen name’ and stock photos in place of their own names and photos to allow for privacy and confidentiality. Because we give valuable information away for free, the same information that others sell for thousands of dollars, we have made some industry ‘guru’s’ quite mad. This should not be construed as an attempt to not disclose, but rather simply a desire for privacy from an ever-growing threat of jealousy and attack by our competitors. All testimonials and representations of profits earned are from real individuals and/or companies. Actual names, website, addresses, etc. are available by writing to the address listed at the end of these terms and conditions.

  • Jay

    Hi my name is jay. First off I’m sure everyone who has ordered easy google profit biz kit online realizes that they are also locked in three different monthly payments.
    1) Membership to googletreasurechest.com
    2) Fraud SafeLockID
    3) Grant Spring
    When I ordered my kit I didn’t realize that this was involved so I want to make sure people read this a realize what they are getting into. I have yet to recieve the biz kit so I don’t know how productive it can be and so I am not going to judge the kit itself. But make sure when you call the number to cancel your membership you specifically say that you want to cancel all 3 trial memberships. When you do that they will tell you that only the google treasure chest membership and Fraud SafelockID has been cancelled and you have to call a seperate number to cancel the Grant spring trial.(inwhich they will give you the number) I had to call several times to make this happen so I wanted to share this info. so that people would only have to call once and get the right response. Oh and don’t forget the persons name you talked to and both confermation numbers. Because for all I know I still could get charged and then I would have to higher my lawyer if things got out of hand. I one thing I hate is being charged for things that I didn’t really want and cancelled. I hope this has helped some people.

    You can always e-mail me at jaysooni@hotmail.com if you have questions.

  • Boo

    Hi, Yes this is a SCAM! I’ve already noticed it from an earlier mistake by joining in the past but luckily cancelled my credit card. You see the signs right in front of you. The message/life-story is EXACTLY the same but just differernt pictures and names. and yes…all say the same stories but different places of taking thier honeymoon vacation, etc. It’s stupid! I do see what they spotted there too is that they will put the city they once visited that you live in. They do anything to try and lure you into it. Statements look fake and as all the signs proved to show scam..do not ever sign up for anything like this!

  • http://www.homebiznessreviews.com Damien Franklin

    Yup, they got me. I signed up for the Google Tool Kit also. I never received an email, nor anything in the male and if I could I would slap that dude on my myspace page for promoting such garbage. I’ve heard good things though, that the goverment is actually getting in on all these scams out there and will put an end to it eventually, but you have thiefs in the world, so we’ll see. Thanks for providing the customer service number. When you do put up a blog about scams, if anyone does have the CC number, please put it up on any type of scam. I didn’t recieve an email so I didn’t have the CC number to cancel. Thanks for this site.

  • Erika

    Hey guys,
    MY little cousin talked me into using my mom’s credit card so he could sign up for this. When i went over it after, in my history i realized the fine print which he didn’t, it looked legit enough and since he’s old enough to know what he’s doing i trusted him.
    Now i’m screwed because i called for their buisness hours, and they said, call back… later. Do they actually have buisness hours that work?
    Can i actually cancel? Or do i have to somehow cancel the card?

    Someone email me please?

  • angel

    save your money for the cd, the program sucks, and they’ll only bill your credit card every month, whch they do in a new york minute.

  • http://www.absolutedomains.us Absolute Domains

    I found this on a Michaels Cash Blog, I am not going to put their site link in though, that would help their search ranking. But anyway thanks for the information everyone and stay away from the thieves.

  • p.i. in charge

    i called customer service they knew of no number to give to contact the direct program.they asked which program was it because they’re only a third party company and deal with multiple accounts from different companies.when trying to sign up on the google site they said my card was rejected ,which i knew couldnt be so because the limet is 5,000..so i tried another ..and another..nd even my debit cards which contain a few thousand on them…but mysteriously they all kept declining…..a week later i get all kind of non authorized transactions through internet shopping…so basically as i entered my card info it was being saved and later used ….the bank launched investigation and so did my credit card companies allto find out all the purchased iteams were sent to out of town addresses,my money was refunded and all accounts had to be closed…i’ve had enough …if you really want a legal at home job try hertz rent-a-car service or try mystery shopping it good money in it…never pay someone to work it should be the other way around!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://www.FreeWorkAtHomeReview.com Jason

    If you search for “work at home” or anything related you find over half of the advertisements are the same blog with a different person selling you “google cash kit” or “easy google cash”. Theres even one for making money on ebay now and you can tell it’s the same people because of the way the website looks and the $1.97 S&H fee with hidden monthly fees. I can’t believe that Google is allowing these sites, they are scamming people and using Google’s name in it. This could leave a bad impression for the users of Google who get scammed by this, because the number of people is already in the thousands if not hundreds of thousands. It’s a real shame because there are several legitimate ways to make money online that really don’t cost you much. Stop the insanity Google.

  • betty

    google treasure chest is a scam i am going to sue these people because they have gone in my account and took 72. 00 already with out my premition this is only a scam i advise you and know one else to get involve with these people.

    Here is another site I found on facebook. It says, “Need a job??” I am always researching sites for my clients because I have a resume writing business and I love to help people find work or extra ways to make money. My uncle keeps coming across these ads and he was talking about doing it, then I saw one myself, so I had to check it out. I am always looking for ways to add to my income as I am a clickbank fan but some of the information out there trying to explain how to do it really isn’t good. I am also a copy writer and graphic design artist so I was very interested in this ad and what it had to offer because the ad was very creative and caught my eye. My gut tells me that this is a scam…. $47 bucks a month? For what????? Anyway, there are legitimate ways to make money online…. but sometimes finding out what they are is definatly a chore. If any of you need a resume or a cover letter to help you get a real job, then I can help. Good-luck everyone!!!!

  • zaphod2003

    Just ask yourself one question before you check anything like this out.

    If this was such a good scheme why advertise it? If I was making a nice earning out of Google Marketing Kit or whatever it was WHY would I tell you about it and risk competition?

    Any site that says “I made xxxx from the internet using productX and I can tell you how” and then asks you for $350 to tell you how. Yeah right. Any one who falls for that scam deserves all they get,

    Sorry but there’s no such thing as free lunch. If I was making mega millions out of the web as some people claim, why would I tell you about it. AND why would I charge you a paltry sum like $350 to give my secrets away?

    Come on guys wake up and smell the coffee. Rule #1: If it sounds too good to be true IT IS.

  • Stu

    Dawn, that website for Michael made cash has exactly the same images as the Josh made cash that I fell for some weeks ago. He keeps changing names! :D

    I cancelled my card the day after signing up and about 3 weeks later now and no money has “accidently” slipped out my account, nor have I been sent the startup kit CD.

    Something else that’s funny is that on the latest 4workonline website, the 7 comments are all positive compliments yet comments are disabled due to spam.

  • yvonne

    Thank Gawd I did not fall for this. I hate my job and would do anything to make $3,000 – $4,000 a month working part-time.

  • http://www.dawneworswick.com Dawn E. Worswick

    Stu,

    I think these sites are what they call affiliate sites were when you agree to sell for them, they give you a mirror site. This is definitely more than one person selling basically the same thing different name.

  • rachel

    Its totally a scam, he makes the story and everything seem so real. I mean who wouldn’t want to fall for that story? But then you notice
    joshmadecash.com and michaelmadecash.com…. They just change the name around and send it to you in your city..Don’t fall for it

    I unfortunally “fell” for it, but the pop-up said my credit card number was not valid, and so it was declined… Does that mean I won’t be charged anything ? Or is it their way of having you enter another number from another card so they can get more ??
    Thanks in advance for any answer !!

  • Tristan

    Yea google kit is a HUGE scam! Notice how on all the pages they have the same comments and sometimes the same pics on the bottom? LOL. Anyone really interested in a work from home opportunity, Email me : ffpromotions@gmail.com THIS IS NOT A SCAM. It is legit and you can try it for FREE yes 100% FREE . I promise!!

  • Kate

    I saw an ad that read Mary’s Money Blog, supposedly froma Mary Steadman in San Jose, CA. So, as I read the page, I knew it was a ASCAM because there is a photo of a family, supposedly Mary Steadman and family, and she says it is a picture of them taken in France-while she is making money the whole time they are on said vacation- whoa!!! I KNEW IT WAS A SCAM RIGHT THEN! WHY? Because I recognized the background and it was NOT France! Far from it folks! It’s freakin’ “Main Street USA”, at Disneyland! That’s the Disneyland Castle in the background! Just to be sure, I googled (of course) “MainStreet USA Disneyland photos” and found a photo of, you guessed it, that castle. Busted!!!

    So then for fun, I clicked on “Mary’s money blog” to get more info. The easy Goog;e profit page comes up. So, scroll all the way down to the botteom to reaswd the terms and Conditions-which I highly advise everyone do for ALL transactions. If you read this, you’ll see how 1) it;s NOT afflitiated with Google, 2) it’s not ‘free”, except for the 7 day trial period. Then there’s a monthly recurring charge of $69.95, or something likme that. You can only cancel in writing, have to write to an addfress in Vegas (that’s a little “iffy” right there), blah, blah. See for yourself. It’s all there. If people are falling for this without checking it out first, then they can cry victim all they want, but they need to own up to the fact that they did this to themselves. No one put a gun to their heads and made them sign up. If they could read the “make easy money” part, then they could certainly read the terms. If they chose to not spend a few minutes and read them over, whose fault is that? If they didn’t understand them, and still signed up anyway, whose fault is that? If they just “believed” it was true, and want to claim they were just naive or innocent, then I say, bullsh*t to that too. They simply did not make the extra effort to research this, whether out of laziness, greed or stupidity. Again, whose fault is that? Scams do not work without willing participants. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. If something seems amiss (like that “France” photo), stop and check it out! Only YOU can prevent yourself and loved ones from being scammed. How do I know all this. Been there, done that-and youbet your boots I check EVERYTHING out now!

    Cathy,

    If your card was declined then your card wasn’t accepted which means they can’t charge you, yeah!

    Recently online there have been a number of people promising that by paying a $1.95 USD shipping fee for their free kit will make you large sums of money with google within the first 72 hours and sometimes even 48 hours. The fact is that making large sums of money with google within 72 hours is almost impossible due to the face when you do apply with google the processing time google requires is at least two days. When google does approve the application you then need to start developing a landing page that is relevant and a popular global search. These earn with google kits are simply guides on how to go through the entire process and they attempt to fool you with there elaborate but clear Terms and Agreements.

    I HATE SCAMS!I think people like us need to help shut down scam sites call the 800# and complain all day.And the people who work for these comapanies make them fell like shit because the scammers 2 and who ever getting the money every month needs to go to jail times are to hard now a days for all these scamers. Prymid Scams would acutaly work if every on was honest LOL. They even go as far as showing pics of familys and people who said it works for them do these people know there pics are being used. Has anyone ever seen there pics being used without your permision.CREEPY!

  • Roklan

    why do people call it a scam? nobody on here even tried it. Yall ordered, got nervous and came to this site and started complaining before you even tried it. Im not with the charging you more every month thing but to avoid that, all you have to do is READ the terms of service before you sign up to anything. How can you guys sign something without reading it and call it a scam. The truth is, you are walking through life like a senseless sheep and you didnt start to believe you were scammed until other people on this board told you that you were. I guess people are just stupid. I swear I want to make up one of those sites if people are as gullable as this board seems to be full of. If its a scam, tell me how you were scammed after you tried their formula. Ive purchased lots of products like this. Some worked and some didnt. But I didnt judge it until AFTER I tried everything they tried to teach me. And I ALWAYS read the fine print before I went jumping into it. NUMBSKULLS

    Google Profit is a scam and should be shut down. If you have been scamed there is a office in Ottawa if you are canadian and surely one in every other country that deals with thoses problems. Look up the competition act and the office online and call their number to ask them to investigate your case and they will. If you are intressted in a real home business opportunity, you can visit my website at globalwealthtrade.com/maxduguay and contact me for more info. This is not a get rich quick scam. If you have any questions you can email me, yes I can talk to you about the opportunity one on one and then you can make a smart choice if this is for you !

    What i just posted is the terms of agreement for cancelation on that easy google biz kit crap. Trust me. I was really looking forward to it if it was going to work but i got here, read some comments, then went to the legal copy and now i see how false all of it is.

  • dummy

    Boy oh boy I got sucked in too!! But thanks to everyones advise here I called my credit card and cancelled the card this way no charge can go through on card. In this day and time (recession) layoffs..people are looking for a solution to a bad situation and scum bags like this are out there to take advantage of the situation. Well, from now on I guess I will just have to take any job to get by until the recession is over. Thanks for all the help and advice and I’ll live by the old saying from now on “if it sounds to good to be true” Thanks again!!

    I am so glad something told me to look this up and do some research..just wish i had done it before the clicking lol. Well..atleast now I can sleep!!

    Like I said in a prior post this is an unethical business practice and there are many legitimate people who offer to teach how to become an affiliate marketer the right way.

  • Tammy Cook

    Yes Google Profit is a scam, for 1 they say it is easy to follow and I don’t have a clue what they were saying, another program that was a trial with them was SafeLock ID and when you cancel they still charge you anyway and then they say you didn’t cancel in the time allotted and you get no refund. All online money making things are a scam and you need to watch out for them. People like that should be drained of everything they have. Their parents would be ashamed or should be!!!!!! People like me are trying to find legitimate work at home jobs but can’t find them due to those idiots.

  • skibumnco

    Ok well I am happy and sad oh and pissed at my self.

    Just a little knowledge. 5/9/08 I was seeking part time work thru Denver post/yahoo jobs for part time work.
    This scam some how got in there adds. I got interested and entered information for the kit. Well after putting in my Visa info. I got a message telling me that ( that I was not eligible to receive this promotion )
    I tried several times and nothing..

    Next thing I got was a call 5/11 from a gentlemen speaking little or hard to understand English. I told him call me back another time. Persistent calls I finally spoke to him.. I went ahead with getting the starting kit.

    I gave him visa info. Then it came to verifying my 3 digit code on back. I refused too give it to him…
    but note to others! He said oh never mind I have it here and read it to me? I figured well I did sign up and was denied and dumb $%^& me I still signed up.
    After his big speech about what I was getting to get started yaa know. I said ok…

    Here is the contact he gave me for other ?’s I may have.

    His name Michael Lopez at 888-242-9085
    His id # is 1376
    gave me accsess # 1106943123
    gave me blazingkeywords.com address.

    So I Google blazing keywords only to find these forums. Oh ^&*(^&*

    After reading up on it.. Next call was to my bank & I just canceled my current card. Kind of a pain but did it.

    So big watch out. If you enter your credit card. Then denied access you probally will be getting a phone call..

    But even worse than that! THEY ALREADY HAVE YOUR CREDIT CARD # FROM TRYING TO SIGN UP.

    Act now !!!!!!
    Good to say they wont even be getting my $1.97

    Ha Ha one for the good guys.
    Thanks to all you

  • dummy

    Hi everyone- ok I got Sikbumnco message about blazingkeywords. First off I would like to thank him for in information he supplied but, I just tried that number and got recording saying it was a non working number. This could be a good thing, we don’t know for sure, but then again maybe he changed the number, I have no idea.

    I did notify the BBB in utah about what happened to myself and just got a reply back from them through my e-mail that my case “has been reviewed by one of our Complaint Specialists and has now been forwarded to the business for their response”.

    I suggest any of you who fell for this such as I did, write to the Better Business Bureau in utah their web address is :www.bbb.com/utah and file a complaint this is the only way were are going to win against these people. So come on lets get a win for the good guys here!!!!!

    I went to check my bank account today and found that this company had charged my account 72.00 without my authorization. I had made the mistake of falling for an easy money ad that was at Fox News (thinking it was legit)… then this charge shows up from a “different” company. They cancelled the account that was created and said they my refund would be in 7-10 days… We will see.

    So I write an email saying its a mistake, I didn’t register to anything, maybe someone used my email account as a fake… I then get a Delivery Status Notification, 3 days later, saying my email got delayed but was delivered… I write them again, and 2 days after I get ANOTHER Delivery Status Notification saying my email didn’t get through…
    I tried many times and I keep getting this.
    I will take these emails to my bank, if I see my card as been charged.
    Unfortunately, I have no way of knowing that before I get my card’s statement.

  • http://www.freeworkathomereview.com Jason

    In reply to skibumnco: I once fell for a scam similar to yours about a year ago. Some guy “J.J. Spadifore” (at least that’s what he told me) said that he could make me thousands of dollars a week by becoming a “data entry specialist”.

    At first they wanted $247 or something like that but after I paid that they called me a few days later asking how much I was willing to invest. I told them that I only had a couple hundred dollars and he went on some big topic of how I could consolidate all of my debt so I could invest more money and then he wanted to know the type of every kind of credit card I had. I thought this was a little weird so I lied to him and told him only a couple. After I told him what kind of cards I had he wanted to know how much line of credit I had on them. Now this is where I made the biggest mistake ever because I actually told him how much I had.

    The next day I get a phone call again (And by the way he would call from phone numbers with all kinds of crazy different area codes and the numbers were never the same!) and this so called “J.J. Spadifore” wants me to invest just about every penny I had in line of credit on my cards in order for me to really make the “big bucks”. I told him that it was a lot of money and I had to think about it and I would call back when I made a decision.

    The very next day I had like 14 calls from this guy and when I did answer the phone the day after that he acted like he was offended that I took so long to make a decision, which was a big fat NO. He then tells me that he has to talk to his boss and that he isn’t going to be too happy with me, and about 15 minutes later he came back and offered the same thing for less than half of the first price. Me being vulnerable and wanting to make money took the bait and did it.

    Over 2 weeks had passed and some so called “guru” who was supposed to teach me over the phone how to do this data entry job had only called me twice, and both times were very late at night while I was sleeping. This really got me angry so I called J.J. Spadifore and told him I want my money refunded and he tried talking me out of it but I was so mad I didn’t budge, I wanted my refund. After he finally agreed to give me a refund a week and a half later my credit card was still being charged, so I had to call the credit card company and cancel my card.

    This SCAM made me think it was impossible to make money on the internet and I gave up, up until January of this year when I decided to try again. I bought 5 different courses or programs in about 2 months, and only found 2 that were in my eyes legitimate, or worth my money. You see the 2 are worth my money because they taught me how to really make money online. They didn’t promise me everything was going to be easy and told me upfront that if I didn’t apply the knowledge they gave me it would be worthless. You’ve gotta put some work in to make money online unless you have the money to outsource the work for you, which most people don’t have that kind of money so they do the work themselves.

    The 2 courses were “PPC Classroom” and “Maverick Money Makers The Club”. PPC Classroom has sessions where only so many people can join, so if you didn’t get in this past February you will have to wait to join until this fall of 2009. Maverick Money Makers is open to new users all year round currently, so anybody can join at any given time.

    Both of these courses taught me how to use internet marketing to make money online, and I would recommend them to anybody who is looking to get started in some extra income from home. They are both subscription sites so they have monthly fees, but you get a money back guarantee and you can cancel your subscription anytime without any hassle. So pretty much you can join for a month or two and learn what you need to get started, and cancel your subscription whenever you want.

    I hope this helps anyone who is looking to make money online because they have meant a lot to me to finally find something legitimate. If you want to learn more about Maverick Money Makers just click on my name and go to my website and click the “Maverick Money Makers” tab on the left side of the page.

    Safest thing I would do is simply cancel the card… Avoid hassle down the road!
    I canceled my Visa about 30minutes after got off the phone with there representative.

    However they beat me too it after reviewing statement…

    Note the $197.00 charge was charge twice. $%^&*(
    But to add too it I also have a .99 cents unidentified charge which was probably them also.

    Good luck

  • Gunner

    I also came across the Easy Google Profit site. After some research I found a few sites claiming “it” to be the TOP, “NO BS” site for making money at home. It sucks to be taken like this, but to repeat what so many here have already said, “If it sounds to good to be true, it’s not”. Why can’t one of you computer geeks, no offense. Make a virus to send to all these sites and get some pay back?! If I could do it I would. Just my .2 cents. Here is one of the pro google links I came across.

    I think, the best thing a person can do in case of getting into any kind of “trial membership”, is to call the CC company and tell that he/she has LOST THE CARD SEVERAL DAYS AGO (just noticed right now, wow!). Lost right after making the last expected (planned, welcome and authorized) purchase. Effective immediately, and no reason to explain anything. After the new card have been issued, one can call the CC, apologize properly, tell that the card was found and mail (or bring) it to bank. Whatever complications can arise, I believe it will be much easier to handle than dealing with scammers. At least, because “they” are PROFESSIONAL CHEATERS. In contrary of you and any “normal” services that may be affected by a credit card loss.

  • AD

    I just tried to sign up with my debit card but got no confirmation… almost as if they rejected my card… I tried again and still no confirmation… Should I still go ahead and cancel my card?
    Jeeez… I cant believe I was that stupid!

  • SandMan0069

    I live in Moulton Alabama where David Greene is supposed to live and I couldn’t find his name in the phone book and I know just about everyone that lives around here . So at that point I thought it was a scam, but thought for $1.99 I would try it. I used a rebate credit card and they keep declining it. then a virtual agent came on and said I could get it for $0.99. But after reading all these blogs I’m not going to give it a second thought. But if anyone has tried it and made any money, please let us know. But I never saw the part that said a $39.99 monthly charge was included.

    Good Luck to Anyone Who trys It,

    Do Not fall for this like I did!!! It is a complete scam. I am in the process of trying to cancel now! Remember, when you do this it signs you up for 3 trial! You have to cancel all three in order to not be charged anything excep the $1.97 which is non refundable even after you cancel your subscrition. But cancelling one will not work, you have tyo cancel all three. Go to the subscription page and click on terms and conditions. You’ll see what your now involved in! HELL!! Good Luck!! Any Questiond feel free..wlmorrison@yahoo.com
    Hope this was helpful because this seemed to be the most helpful websie I found!

    I can only shake my head. I heard google and thought maybe this is the real thing. You see I lost my job nearly three months ago, like a lot of people but the town i live in is just falling apart. I can’t move because my family is hear and my father’s sick. There are no jobs around her, i put in over two dozen applications and no one’s hiring. Stores are closing up and I’m running out of reserve cash. As a last resort, and because money really is needed i tried for fast food joints, ashamed yes but at least it’d be some income.

    Even they aren’t hiring, and i almost fell for this scam.

    Thanks for the head up.

    We all search for an easy way out of the rat race, but it would seem the only people who are winning this race are the scammers. Google should do something about these people defaming their well establish brand name and associating it with scams such as these.

    We need a major company like google to stop these scums of society preying on people who are sick and tired of the rate race and just want another way out.

    I guess like most things in life there are no easy way in getting rich. Even organised crimes require time and effort. Why would making large some of money through legitimate means be any different.

    So if you continue to look for the next best thing in making money then you’re wasting your time.

    If the easy way is mostly likely a scam then the hardest way may be the only method to make legitimate income.

    Good luck and stop falling for scams!!

    The Govt should require anyone selling business opportunites to
    get a liscense by submitting documentation to show the profitability and a $5000 fee to pay someone to review the opportunity to determine whether it is legitimate.
    Selling business opportunities without the liscense would be a federal crime.
    The govt reviews of opportunites should be accesable online to the public.
    These scammers are criminals and just a drag on the economy.
    What you are being billed for should be itemized on the page where you enter
    your credit card info instead of being hidden in fine print.
    The govt controls this about as well as they do illegal immigration.

  • GiGi

    I too got caught out with this half an hour ago, after realising the terms and conditions I sent this email to support@blazingkeywords.com and also cancelled my card
    have just paid 1.95 to have your kit shipped to me. I then did some research and found out that this is a scam and that you will take money out of my account every month. I never agreed to any of that… you never had a please tick to say you have read our terms and conditions, in fact your terms and conditions link is hidden right at the bottom of the page you get AFTER already giving my card details.

    If you take any money from my account it will be considered fraud. I am calling my bank first thing in the morning to make sure that you cannot take any money from my account. I repeat… I did not agree to these terms and conditions and therefor if you do take any money from me this will be passed to the fraud department.

    I trust you will cancel any payment already made as I no longer wish to recieve this kit. I shall also send that in writing and register the proof of postage to yourselves.

    Please send me an email back asap to confirm that any transaction is cancelled

    I input my information on the website Easy Google Profit Work From Home On Your Computer (Blazingkeywords.com) and received a call 2 days later. After I ordered their information packet for only $1.97 I was told that I would be charged $77.00 a month and that I could cancel within 7 days. The representative said that I would receive a password and username via email, which I never received. I tried to cancel by calling their 1-888 -248-9285 but they informed me that their computers were down. I then call my credit card to remove the charges. I called the 1888 number a second time and was informed again that heir computer was still down. I asked to speak to a manager. The representative stumbled with her words and stated that the manager was dealing with the computer issue. So I then call my credit card closed the account and had a new card mailed out to me. My credit card company said that they had charge me for $1.97 twice. This is a HUGE scam. . STAY AWAY FROM THIS SITE. It is a complete scam. I contacted the Better Business Bureau and filed a compliant with the Internet Crime Complaint Center.

  • Znkp

    Though Mary claims to be married to Kevin, she later discloses that she bought a car for her “wife”. Unless she is in drags, this bit is amazing!

    Obviously, the Spammer forgot to change “wife” to “husband” when changing Jeff or Kevin or whatever into Mary.

    Here is the URL (from Google search):

  • http://strangelyperfect.tv Strangely

    @Znkp. You can use a little program called TinEye to do an image search for “Mary” & Co. It’s early days for the program, but sometimes it throws up lots of images, all the same, even if they’ve been resized and renamed! You can then get an idea about the scale of the problem and how these standard images are bandied about.
    There’s also a Firefox plugin that lets you do it by right-clicking on an image. Neat! There’s quite a bit of comment in this area in my main Google Treasure Chest posting on my own website, which I posted after I stumbled across this cesspit of con.

  • http://strangelyperfect.tv Strangely

I don’t remember putting in my mailing address to even receive the cd. What the heck did ebay pages have to do with posting links for cash??? I canceled my card, but I’ll have to wait until Tuesday to call and cancel all the subsciption crap. At least I’m still with the grace periods. I’m also bookmarking this page for all the reporting info.

  • Bethaney Overy

    Hi please can somebody help me i dont know what to do!
    I stupidly signed up to this also, tried to call the numbers to cancel, only to find none of the numbers work.
    The bank cant cancel the payment if they do take the £70, so what else am i meant to do, the bank tell me they have to send a cancellation of payment to them and wait 15 days for a relpy, but its obvious they arent going to reply, so in the meantime that money will be taken! im so upset i only have enough money in my account to pay the bills, surely there must be something i can do?

    Hi Bethaney Overy,

    Call your bank and close out your account and reopen a new one. This is only way to stop them from taking your money. This happened to me yesterday I immediately closed out my credit card account and and reopened a new one. Report this Better Business Bureau and filed a compliant with the Internet Crime Complaint Center. Here are the links: https://complaint.ic3.gov/login.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2fupdate%2fDefault.aspx

    @writer

    As long as they didn’t get your financial details, you should be okay unless there’s some trojan or similar running on your PC or if they can match your email address to another thing you may have applied for…

    Unfortunately, if you gave your email address out (which I think you have to do at the start of the process), you’ve now got to reconcile yourself with the fact that you’ll now be inundated with more spam than you ever knew could exist! This is what I discovered when I did a little investigation into their ‘privacy’ policy with regards to spam which I posted on my site! It took less than a week before ALL the various scam systems were spamming me.

    @MeLoveYouSoMUch

    “Only get trapped if you’re greedy”… That was my initial thought – it’s seems a reasonable assumption at first glance. However, recent research at Exeter University in the UK has found that 20% of people are always susceptible to scams. It’s been found that even really intelligent people, who you’d think would know better, are really gullible to this sort of thing.

  • Tara

    Anyone could fall for this because it’s NOT OBVIOUS unless you really know what to look for. I first ran across this on an authentic-looking “newspaper” page, the “Miami Gazette News” (http://miamigazettenews.com/business/2009/main.php). I read what seemed like a reasonable piece of journalism (complete with convincing blogentary from “readers”), although the “if it’s too good to be true” reasoning played in the back of my mind, so I decided to research. THIS IS WHERE IT GOT FUNNY!

    First, searching in a new tab, I discovered there’s no such thing as Miami Gazette News. CLUE 1. Puzzled, I went back to the original tab, to see if there was a link. That’s when I finally noticed that just below the title it says “This publication is an article advertisement for Easy Google Profit.” OK, dead end. So I looked at the author, John B. Guiseman, with a nice photo and everything. Searched his name, with and without the middle initial, and there SEEM to be numerous references to his writing in the Washington Post, Blog Talk Radio, Yahoo! Local, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. For example: “Keywords jobs and Careers in Pauls Valley, OK – Yahoo! HotJobs | Work At Home Programs: An Investigation • Columnist John Guiseman Examines The New Trend Of Working Online. http://www.MiamiGazetteNews.com” (note the clause “An Investigation”- what a scream!!). Click on any link- I dare you- and it leads basically nowhere, and you will not find a reference to the “writer” in the text or links on the page. BUT WAIT- the best is yet to come! On that page you accessed from your search, click the back button on your browser- it takes you back to your search page, but the original search results are NOT THERE. CLUE 2. Just for assurance, I opened another new tab and went to Washington Post and a few others, searched for “guiseman,” and – WAIT – IT’S COMING – YES – I FOUND… a big, fat, ugly NOTHING! Zip, zero, nada!

    You wanna know the REALLY FUN PART? When I first opened the link to Easy Google Profit, saw a blaring attempt at marketing, and then started to leave to window by using my search toolbar, I got an URGENT pop-up CHAT window, begging me not to leave the page! How on earth could I leave the page without at least chatting, especially if the nice lady named Tammy or whatever was offering me only $.99 S&H! Well, I hesitated just a second, then my “if it’s a worthwhile thing it will be there later” reasoning kicked in, thank you Jesus. CLUE 3- it’s it legit, it’s never a rush!

    And the plot thickens… JUST NOW, after composing the above paragraphs, I went back to the “gazette news” page, and – LOL, ROTF – it’s now called “The Net’s Gazette News,” the Miami reference being deleted. This is in less than 10 minutes!!!

    The moral of the story, just as others have said: it’s never easy, if it sounds too good to be true it probably is, and I’ll add my nugget: only FRAUDULENT SCAMS want to RUSH, ACT NOW, CLICK IN THE NEXT 30 SECONDS, PLEASE DON’T LEAVE THE PAGE WITHOUT AT LEAST CHATTING, etc. If you remember your fables, think of the Tar-baby. Once you’ve touched it, you’re stuck. And the more you struggle, the worse you get stuck! For me, this was a fun and funny waste of my valuable time.

  • Tara

    DON’T THESE PEOPLE HAVE ANYTHING TO DO except sit around and think up legit-sounding names for fake companies, fake learning institutions, fake newspapers, and fake experts, in order to weave elaborate, circular webs full of fake websites and links that exist only to play upon our stupidity??? I just found another go-nowhere circular scam, Attraction Marketing Renegade (fake), published by Renegade University (fake) and written by Magdalena Strzyzewska (fake), and featuring the book The Renegade Network Marketer (fake) by Ann Sieg (fake). All the links lead back to a variation of the same page, or else to a video on Spike or whatever featuring a “training” video preceded by an ad (for a real product) which we have all seen on TV lending it credibility. (LOOKING on the bright side, at least the real product is getting probably some free advertising!!) I’m flabbergasted at the sophistication of the deception.

    Next time you want to play solitaire, check out this website instead. It’s another fun time waster!

  • Ryan Anderson

    It’s a scam, read the terms and conditions.

    “You have also subscribed to a fifteen-day trial to Grant Spring for just $24.87 a month and every month thereafter should you chose not to cancel”

    “If you choose to sign up for this product and pay the recurring monthly charges using a debit card you hereby provide pre-authorization and consent that blazingkeywords.com may charge $77.82 on a monthly basis.”

    Remember folks, if it sounds too good to be true it usually is.

  • http://www.beautipage.com/polly beauticontrolpw

    Edmina—to answer your question: if you signed up and put in your credit card info I promise you, likely the only way to make sure they take no more money out of your account is to cancel the card and ask for a new one with a new account number. If they go in and try to take more it just won’t go through. I had to do this with a company before that started billing me and taking money out of my account for items I did not order….they were contacted repeatedly and said they would stop, then did it again and again. I never got the product. Save yourself time and stress and report your card lost—–you can always get a new one and use cash or checks til it arrives.

  • dailyartist

    All of these type scams are trading on the “Google” name as this places their ads and websites high on the search scale to be found, plus, most surfers trust that the “Google” connection means it is legitimate. What these scams have in common is that they bait you with some kind of “kit” which you think is your only cost. What they are really selling is membership in worthless websites filled with ads and software that can be found for free anywhere on the internet. What they are neglecting to do is inform the consumer that their intent is to enroll you in a monthly membership and pass your financial information on to other cohorts. Just having an obscure link of terms and conditions that is buried at the bottom of the page is not sufficient to fulfill FTC dot com law on showing what their intent is. The law requires that businesses must show disclosure (intent) in clear and conspicious easily read disclosure near where you submit your financial information if other terms or conditions are part of the transaction and should also have a place for you to check showing that you understand that further debits are going to be made when you submit the transaction and your financial information. All terms and conditions of a transaction should be disclosed before they have your financial information. These scammers are claiming you should have read the t/c before you signed up but they are the ones that are not complying with FTC law on clearly and conspiciously publishing their t/c along side where you submit financial information so you can make an informed decision.

    Please go read this http://peggyconyers.com/GTCscam/042209infusionmedia_pop.pdf to get an idea how these scams work.

    I was caught in the Google Treasure Chest scam myself but was lucky enough to get my money returned under the 30 day guarantee (see next paragraph) that GTC has but I used the refund phone number that was connected with the $72.21 unauthorized debit showing up on my bank account statement. I was never able to get any answer to the GTC support phone number, my e-mails were not answered and my mail sent to Google Treasure was returned as undeliverable. I was even able to keep their worthless dvd kit as I guess they did not want to refund that $1.97 also under the 30 day refund guarantee. I made a complaint report to the Utah BBB against GTC and when BBB sent my complaint to GTC it was returned back to them as “undeliverable”.

    30 Day Unconditional Satisfaction Guarantee and Cancellation Requirements
    At any time during the first thirty days, if you are not fully satisfied with your purchase, you may call customer service at 866.951.1406 for a refund of your monthly subscription and the shipping fee. When you call, a customer representative will give you an RGA (Return Goods Authorization) number. The kit must then be returned with the RGA number. You must be able to confirm delivery to receive your refund. Please ship your kit with a delivery confirmation to our fulfillment center: 405 East 12450 South, Suite G, Draper, Utah 84020. Note: This address is for returns only. All other correspondence must be sent to the address on the website.

    @Tara Not all of these are fake, I started affiliate marketing in January of this year and I am now making a steady part time income. PPC Classroom 2.0 is where I learned and they only allow so many members in at a time, which they are now re-Launching this Thursday May 28th. The guys who started this class are labeled as “super affiliates” because they are so good at what they do, and they are just as good at teaching it.

    Reply to Blob:

    Did you read that article carefully. It reads at the top
    MiamiGAZETTE NEWS
    This publication is an article advertisement for Easy Google Profit.

    Since it is an “article advertisement” for the SCAM what would you expect to read but “more high praise”, and at the bottom it has the same cutoff of any consumer comments which all the scam sites are doing. Any of the links on that article lead to a sign up for the SCAM just as all the “bait” webssites do. Down at the bottom in small print are the words:
    Author and publisher is an Affiliate of the company offering the business opportunity and are remunerated by advertiser.
    If you read the small print further at the bottom it tries to cover their (the scam people) butts on any liability they can think of. But if you choose to sign up for this scam all of that small print will not show up next to the place where you give your financial information as it is required by law to be placed and disclosed for you to read.

    I would be more interested to know if a “John B. Guiseman” really worked for the Miami Gazette and if he actually wrote such that article.

I just Viewed the Selection source and found one of those IP mirrors that the location of where you currently are. I blocked it on my Ad Block (just the IP mirror) and guess what? Mary did not have a location! Big Surprise huh. Now if I was at my dad’s house it would have said Mary Steadmen in Clinton NC, get it?
    Here’s part of the script that shows you your location when you view this article: http://j.maxmind.com/app/geoip.js

    what do i do?how do i cancel the stupid google scam.

  • The Informer

    Most of those scam sites pretty much use ur ip to discover ur general location to make u think they live in ur area when they do NOT. Ask a friend who lives in another state/maybe even country to click the same link and they will tell u that the person is claiming to be from their location.

  • SIMS

    I THINK NBC, ABC, CNN AND GOGGLE SHOULD SUE THESE PEOPLE FOR USING THERE NAME IN THEIR SCAMS THAT THEY HAVE GOING ON .. THIS IS A FUCKING OUTRAGE FOR SOMEONE TO DO THAT TO ANOTHER PERSON… ECUSE MY LANGUAGE I AM JUST REALLY REALLY REALLY UPSET THAT PEOPLE WOULD GO THROUGH SUCH LENGTHS TO STEAL A BUCK FROM A HARD WORKING MOTHER OR FATHER, THATS TRYING THEIR BEST TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR FAMILY. …. TERRY YOURE A FUCKING LIAR AND YOU SHOULD BE SUED ALONG WITH THESE BASTARDS AND EVERYONE ELSE THAT KEEP POSTING THESE SCAMS SHOULD BE REPROTED TO THE AUTHOURITIES….

  • Laurie

    Its funny – I usually delete these spam emails, but for grins and giggles I thought I would research what was on the Subject line. “SEEN AND TRUSTED ON CNN!” . So I went to the CNN website and searched on Easy Google Profit – and the only things that came up were various blogs etc with “SCAM” . Naturally it was what I expected .

    I have found that most ads or emails that make claims like that or FEATURED on just mean that they have paid to have an ad running on those sites or programs . The other big one that uses bogus endorsements like this are the ACAI Berry Scams with the Oprah Winfrey or Rachel Ray endorsements and visited those star’s websites – only to find disclaimers that clearly state THEY DO NOT ENDORSE THE ACAI BERRY PRODUCT at all.

    unfortunately most people see that BS and actually believe it, only to be scammed.

    Is Google Treasure Chest finally being investigated???
    Read this Jackson Hole Daily article

  • Angry Dick

    An even Bigger/Massive scam…….

    This time it is conducted by a professional gang using the name of “Government”, and “Financial institution/Bank”.

    Here is what happened to me. I paid monthly for my pension fund. This morning I received my yearly statement. It highlight that my fund have lost nearly £17,000 since May/08. Actually, my 9-year old fund is now worth less than what I paid in to it over the past 9 years. Also, the government have devalued the £ by paying the banks £500Billions of my & other hard-working people tax money (also this government have paid our money to some “poor” bank employees who plundered the money in first place, and to pay MP’s allowances) . Thus my pension fund is not only less than what I paid in, but also worth less in terms of £ spending value. A legal Scam???
    The moral of the story is that, If the “head of the pack” is a thief, then a lot of their followers will be!
    BTW, Tony Blair called the UK as “the rip-off country”… probably the only thing he got right.

  • dailyartist

    @Laura
    It seems the Acai Berry and the google scams are run by the same people. They are using the same addresses. Probably using different phone numbers which helps account for all the confusion on which phone number to use when you try for a refund with these crooks. (see article below)

    Jackson Hole News & Guide

    Feds take investigation

    By Kevin Huelsmann, Jackson Hole, Wyo.
    Date: May 2, 2009

    Jackson police handed over to the Federal Trade Commission the investigation of what they believe to be several Internet scams that are all linked to a post office box in town.

    Jackson police Cpl. Andy Pearson said several individuals called the department during the past several weeks complaining of not being able to cancel charges from Internet companies selling Acai berry health supplements and technology products.

    “People think they’re buying legitimate products, and then they have trouble canceling these recurring charges on their credit cards,” Pearson said. “A con man can easily drag his feet through another billing cycle to get some more money out of people.”

    In another possible scam, people who made a purchase on the Google Treasure Chest Web site reported unwanted recurring charges for various “services” that are detailed in the Web site’s terms and conditions.

    The Web site offers a kit for a minimal price that is supposed to show buyers how to make money at home by doing simple work on the Internet.

    Pearson said the problem with these types of Web sites is that they appear to be legitimate and often do provide a service or product.

    When police began to investigate the claims, which came from residents of states as far away as California, they found the two companies selling Acai berry supplements and technology products have the same local address as Google Treasure Chest.

    Police also found they weren’t the only ones looking into the three companies, Pearson said.

    “When I went to check on the mailbox, I found out the FTC and several attorneys general were looking into it and I backed off,” Pearson said. “Now, we’re just directing everyone who calls in about it to call the FTC. They don’t have the jurisdictional problems we would have with a case like this.”

    A spokesman from the FTC said the agency is unable to comment on any ongoing investigations.

    Mark Moran, special assistant to Wyoming’s attorney general, said his office was unaware of any specific complaints about any of the three companies.

    Moran said he had recently followed up with Google Treasure Chest on his own after receiving an e-mail from the company.

    He said he sent a letter to the address listed, requesting more information about the company.

  • http://N/A Jason

    I just looked into easy google profit. First off, if it IS a job that they are hiring you to do there is no reason (whatsoever) that you should have to purchase anything from them.

    So…. I exited out of the page. BUT when I did that a “special offer” popped up on my screan lovwering the shiping costs of the software from $1.97 to just 99 cent! (oh boy! I’m screaming with excitement… NOT)

    I went ahead and clicked this “special offer” just to see what they had. I figured 99 cent wasn’t to huge of a risk. Then they have a time that starts counting down and only gives you 4 minutes to complete the sign up or you dont’ get said “special offer.”

    Now, I know full well, that rushing people into making a decesion by telling them “This is a limited time special offer! You must act now!” is an old and well-used scam tactic to get people to act on impulse. After all you don’t have (much) time to think about it since you only have 4 minutes! You have to fill out all the appropriot information.

    Needless to say I didn’t do that… I figured it was a scam and searched for info on it. Guess what I found… this site. :) (is now really screaming with joy…ok not really… but inside I am…)

    So my recomendations… if your looking for a job or to make money, don’t purhcase anything in order to get hired… it just doesn’t make sense!

  • Suey

    so i’m a stay at home mom, i was looking for online jobs that i could do, i checked out this website “moneymakingmommy.com” it seemed ok until i clicked on a link for data entry jobs it sent me to a success story of some guys and how he uses google easy money, so i clicked on it and it sent me to google money master and the website was “6ftoverhead.com”, i started to enter in my info, but then i changed my mind because i wanted to do more reseach and guess what it sent me here, so i’m not sure i trust it. there was also a Yoogle website that also sent me to the 6ftoverhead website. Just thought i would see if anyone has done the same. and what the result was
    thanks bunches

  • Joseph

    This is the version these arseholes have made for Britain:

    http://www.manchesternewsgazette.co.uk/business/2009/main.php

    It’s probably not illegal (it states it is an advertisement), but it’s definitely misleading. I found it when I accidentally clicked on an ad on a website I thought was a news article (hence the site it sent me to) saying something about the recession. You’ll not it shows the same screenshot as joshmadecash.com, and has the same ‘comments disabled due to spam’ message. It’s obviously a load of crap, as the article frequently uses Americanisms, as to the responders, and switches between pounds and dollars. It’s worrying though, OAPs could easily fall for this. Do you think we should report it to the police?

  • http://strangelyperfect.tv Strangely

    @Joseph
    “probably not illegal” is a bit of an understatement!!
    The T&Cs have NO contact details or anything – I would class this (lack of) action under the ‘definitely misleading’ category, although on my website I use much fruitier terms.

    A WHOIS puts the server in UTAH and the site owner is ‘Lars Callary’ in Los Angeles. Another ‘company’ at the same IP (208.131.156.183) is Omargetspaper.com which is hidden by a company in Florida.

    https://secure.consumerdirect.gov.uk/reportascam.aspx is the port of call in the UK. Similar to the US FTC.

    I have a little list of official government contacts here: http://strangelyperfect.tv/3401/google-treasure-chest-phone-and-address-list/ The cross-border one is probably the best in this case.

    As for @crissy… nice try. Her words would all be a bit more believable if she actually had some history on her blog and the articles had some structure – you know, beginning, middle and end. Instead there are about four articles, all clickbanked out with no intro that are plain plugs, pure and simple. I’m sure I’ve seen the picture somewhere else as well… ;-)

  • http://easygoogleprofit Almost

    I was on facebook and came across this site on the side… thought i would check it out…. it did look legit with the guy and his wife. So I clicked on the page… put in my email and everything and then it went to the next page telling me to put in my cc info… thats when I thought about it for a sec. and decided to Google it. The first one I saw def had the whole this is a scam read this before signing up thing going on for it.. so i read it and it made it look more legit stating the 3 websites they found to be the most lagit. So went back to the website and still didn’t trust it… so went back and found this page… this has deff saved me.. because if it had just been the .99 shipping fee.. i probably would have done it… but now I see all the extra hidden fees included… what a scam….. and I was almost one of the sorry saps that fell for it!!! lol

  • coochcrab

    I know the guys who were paid to do the ads. It turns out that they werent even paid in cash to do the ad. If fact they were given gift certificates at a burger joint!!! And even funnier, it wasnt even google who asked them to do the ad. It was a man by the name of gieorg dubyaboosh, who started the whole thing!!! He has been scamming millions of people! In fact he made millions of dollars through creditcard companies. But not to worry folks hes in jail now facing not only scam charges, but child pornography and stagetory rape charges… what a shame…true story

  • TooSlow?

    Doh – I saw the link to googleprofit on Facebook and – as so many of you have said – thought ‘Google’ reputable company…… I entered details and then Googled it – stupid I know, I never have been know for forward thinking!! I stopped and closed the window as it was still processing – was that too late? Or are they now going to bill me? Anybody know? Help please!

  • http://strangelyperfect.tv Strangely

    @coochcrab
    Ha Ha! Nice one! – apart from he’s not in jail but should be after presiding over the biggest pile of lies in history, the biggest financial collapse, erosion of hard won freedoms, lined the family pockets etc etc etc.

  • http://strangelyperfect.tv Strangely

    @TooSlow?

    It depends which window it was! Most people have said that the money is withdrawn instantly from their accounts, certainly the ‘postage’ charge – so check your account ASAP!

  • Peggy

    @TooSlow?

    Probably too late. I think your information would still be recorded on their computer before you closed the connection on yours. Your need to cancel your cc or debit card immediately. It is the only way to stop more payments to them and safeguard your finances because once they have your financial information they seem to be passing it on to others and you will be getting more charges from places you know you didn’t sign up for. They have turned this scam into a form of identity theft by charging your card for whatever their little hearts desire! Cancel that Card!. Notify your bank immediately of the circumstances to be on the safe side.. It is almost impossible to get satisfactory cancellation from just calling them on the phone as they are such liars when they tell you that you are canceled. A lot of people are finding that they are charged anyway even after they have been told that the account was canceled.

    The reason I say they probably have your information on their computer already is that I once ordered something and my computer crashed just as I was about to send and when I got back on the computer I re-did everything and sent it as I normally would do (thinking that the first one didn”t go out) and wound up paying for the product twice. Apparently the information is on their computer and if they are not honest they can do whatever they wish with that information.

  • Peggy

    If you would like to read my real life experience with the “Google Treasure Chest” scam please go visit my personal blog http://scam-googletreasurechest.blogspot.com/search/label/My%20experience%20with%20GTC. I am hoping that by writing about my experience that others will be warned or at least get some idea what they can be up against. If you have any good information on these “Google” scams please leave your tips and comments on my blog for others to benefit by. Publicizing the methods these con artists use is one of the best ways to stop them being able to fool the public!
    Also don’t be shy about reporting them to the FTC, FBI, BBB, Attorney General and any other law agency that you can think of. I have been following the comments on a lot of these blogs and websites that report these cons and it seems that the con artists are getting much bolder and even laughing at the consumer that is ensnared in this mess. The more of us that take action to stop them by reporting them to the authorities the better the chances of stopping them. Passive action will not do and remember there is power in numbers.

  • TooSlow?

    Thanks for input – before I could do anything I had a call from my banks fraud team who said they were querying 2 attempts at withdrawl – one from America and one from Cyprus so they’ve blocked my account! So – phew! At least I’ve escaped that – just now feel sooooo stupid! :O( One of those days!!! Thanks again.

  • http://strangelyperfect.tv Strangely

    @Peggy & @TooSlow
    It depends on which window it was. Even if it’s the payment window it does not necessarily mean the info is transferred. The info is stored in a cookie for your next return and is only sent using the click button as it appears to be a genuine payment system they’re using. If the click button event fails or the message does not make it (it’s a 2-way process this transfer), no transaction contact with THEIR server is made.
    Check your bank account.
    Delete all your cookies.
    Don’t go near that website again!

    Various things with a cookie can instigate a double-billing scenario but it doesn’t mean that the transaction went twice. If you are buying a kettle say, then it’s the counter that goes up.

    As I say, check your bank account. then you’ll know.

  • neil

    hi, just read all the comments and totally agree with the action of working hard and not to fall for a scam, adsense does work i have worked with adsense sinse conception, at first i got no hits then gradually month by month my earnings increased, even now as of 2009, my earnings with adsense are only what i was earning in IT , but at least now i work when i want to not whn someone wants me too, i also got time to spend with my daughter now which is more inportant than work,

    summery, work hard at it, dont beleive the scammers and dont pay out money to work, good luck

  • http://strangelyperfect.tv Strangely

    Hi again

    For everyone that’s been suckered by the scammers, just remember, in their eyes you are actually a “business opportunity enthusiast”!!
    It’s true.

    You are one of many “… pre-qualified opportunity seekers have shown their commitment towards working from home in the way that matters most to your mailers – by making a purchase!”

    I found all this out in a bit of undercover research (call that ‘set myself up to receive loads of spam’) which I’ve detailed here http://strangelyperfect.tv/3485/the-most-annoying-head-on-the-planet/#comment-1330, amongst other places.

    The key bit for yourselves is on this page on this spammy marketer’s website, http://datacards.geonmedia.com/market;jsessionid=CF46E147CA811FF142B873936483CBBD?page=research/datacard_print&id=209498 where the full costs of mailing lists and the numbers of names involved, are listed.

    Don’t feel bad about getting suckered. Let’s get the bastards and all their hidden professionalism. Complain to your AG, FTC, BBB, FBI etc at every opportunity. Give the law enforcers some proper fuel to hang’em high and dry.

    A woman is starting a class action and has asked for as many names and incidents as possible. Her email address and her original posting are to be found here, http://strangelyperfect.tv/3401/google-treasure-chest-phone-and-address-list/#comment-1482

  • Denise

    Well I found this “Easy Google Profit” Kit, on the Foxnews Website as a report by some reporter that supposedly checked on it since he was doing a report on internet work from home scams and his comment was “this seems to be the only legitimate one of few out there, they offer good money for your work but not a get rich quick scam like most”… long to short I decided to try it for some extra $$$ since we are self employed and business is SOOOOO
    slow. I just called my credit card company and denied the charge.. interesting.. they told me the charge was placed to be paid to a company called “Blazing Words”… my email acknowldgement says: Your member account has been activated.

    Site name: Chat Makes Cash
    Site URL: http://www.chatmakescash.com/

    MERCHANT: DWR ENTERPRISES

    Hmmm looks to me like nothing seems to match up huh.. I should know better I work online and from online as part of our business for years.

    this is at the end of their email:

    Unless cancelled, your subscription will automatically rebill at
    $39.00 in 7 days for your convenience.

    OF COURSE the phone number is NO good.. have not tried the website yet but sure it will be more BS. I will keep track of what’s going on to make sure they get nothing from me and hope some of the others that saw this on Foxnews.com earlier today will think to check it out after the fact and find my post and call and block their charge as well.

  • Denise

    Update to my recent post… the website on my “membership activation” did work
    and there was a place at the bottom to Cancel Membership.. it asked for
    the email address used and your Subscription ID from the acknowledgement and
    the number of the your credit card used (Hmmmm)… I entered the email and the
    Subscription ID and clicked to proceed and it went through and says it cancelled it..
    I see no reason why they needed my credit card number again, the site for the http://www.CMCsupport.com has a lot of stuff some people might be intimidated by I found it
    insulting… “If you cancel you can never use or work from any website or company we are affiliated with”…. Big deal.. do not want to that’s why I ‘m here. Going back to site to email
    for verification of my cancellation and keep at them until I get it.

    You would think where there are so many people out of work now and looking for anything legitimate that some companies would come forward with jobs from home as long as people had computers and DSL access and could prove they knew how to use their computers.

  • Jo Schmoooo

    I just got scammed by them. I quess from now on I will check these places out first before signing up. I think that they make money with this 7 day thing. Alot of people miss that 7 days, get charged and either don’t pay attention to their bank account or don’t care. They think there is nothing they can do about it or whatever. I called right away as I looked at my checking account several times today. They were very polite and gave me my money back pronto even though it was the 8th day.
    I do believe that it is a scam though. It is possible that the people that work in the accounting dept. that I talked to don’t even know it is a scam. If they di why would they be working in the accounting dept instead of working this system that tells us how u can get rich. LOL

    I didn’t say it was a legit FoxNews reporter I said that I found an article doing a search on the company same as the ad on foxnews from a ” Reporter” think he was in Florida saying that
    all these internet company work at home are scams but in his opinion this one was the most legit and he went on with his BS why… The ad was written to look like it was a legit online report on the newsite by an independent reporter doing a story on these type of work at home scams.. that is the only reason I read it.. usually I ignore those things… the is the way it was written “seemed” legit, had I though it was I would not have done my own investigation further into it.

    Oh well, I found a link to a website called “SteveGetsCash” on Yahoo! This website talks about how Steve makes $5000+ a month from posting links on Google! Oh well, sounded good but a little bit exaggerated, then I saw the link to “Google Cash Starter Kit” which takes you to a website that is NOT Google related. I found out immediately it was a scam, how controversial it is when the site talks about how much of a scam the “Easy Get Rich” ads are while it-itself-is talking about it.

    I just wanted to warn people if I can from this website “SteveGetsCash” and the so called “Google Cash Starter Kit” it IS a scam! DO NOT FALL FOR IT.

  • Chang

    This is something similar to what I have experience before. Like the Easy Ebay back in 2000 to 2003. I got into this same loop hoops back then. 1st cause they cause about nearly @70 to get the kit, then later some strainger were calling to give me direction and offered to help and will guide me througth everything to success at the cause of $3500. And they only excepted credit card.

    Just look outthere, when a website is get very good repution, other smart ass dube taking it and use it to make some money. Here are some example it saw.

    The Stimilus Grant from the goverment, Easy Google profit, Something like you have export a Check/MoneyGram to someone out of country because with some sort of business related, and email like you are the next sin line of a rich guy, you maybe getting half of this guy money one the case is over by submiting your info and agree to cooperate with them on any matter. The list can go on as I can remembered.

    So, be safe and do your research before making any you thnk smart decission.

  • inbusinessrightnow

    Everyone- There is no easy way to make money on the internet. It’s hard, especially when you are starting from scratch. The only thing I have ever found to work is this:
    #1- seek out a product or products that are hard to find, but you think are good enough products that you will be able to sell them (here’s a hint: would YOU buy them for yourself?)
    #2- Buy a bunch from the manufacturer, a few cases
    #3- Start a website where you can sell them at a profit
    #4- Sell the products
    #5- repeat
    Seriously. Buy low, sell higher. That’s profiting.
    It’s hard.
    It’s hard to find the right products, it’s hard to come up with the money, it’s hard to learn how to maintain a functioning business, it’s hard to do your own web design, it’s hard to get traffic right away.
    Making money is NOT EASY.
    Just be persistent and smart about what you spend your money on and how you spend your time. Be patient. If you believe in what you are doing, eventually tyour business will flourish.

    I came across the “SteveGetsCash ” website right off of my google email and clicked on it…it really seemed ok, I was like “wow, Google?”…I decided to just send for the kit…it was only $1.95…but, I’ve been scammed before so I always read the fine print…1st red flag…you get forwarded to an alternative site that ask for your information….nothing to do with Google….2nd red flag (the fine print) you will be charged $$$ for a website membership…I said to myself “Imma look into this more,” and just saved his website…a couple of days later, I come across a “Mary Steadman,” talking about the same thing Steve was the “Google Biz Kit”…so Im like”oookkkk”

    What’s funny is when reading Steves’ life story, he worked for a pipe manufacturing company (or something like that), the credit card bills were maxed…him and his wife had to move from a small apartment to an even smaller one, ect. ect…..well, lo and behold…Mary also worked at a pipe manufacturing company and had maxed out credit cards, and had to move too….these people..or maybe even the same person didn’t even try to change up the story…they’re just after your money.

    I think what “inbuisnessnow” had to say is true…..but, the time it takes to be successful most people just don’t have, like myself who’s a single mom of 3, I work, and Im in nursing school….so I don’t have the time or the money to invest….and yes you have to put some money in, to get something out….A true testiment to that is the Herbalife business I was in….I can honestly say it is legit, I actually received a check from them for $397…but I had invested over $3000, that was for memebership, products, websites, ect….if I would have had the money, I think it would have eventually turned around….but beginning at that rate with such little return….I couldn’t make it.

    I do wish everyone success in their endeavors, but you must realize that as much as we want the “get rich quick” money…it doesn’t exist, and there is always something behind the “up front”…. “to good to be true” things they are telling you initially….always do your research….thats what led me hear..and it just helped me confirm, what I really already new.

TO GET EVEN EVERY TIME A GOOGLE MONEY MAKING KIT POPS UP, CLICK ON IT AND THEY GET CHARGED WHEN YOU CLICK ON SCAM. PULL IT UP THEN SHUT IT DOWN, HIT THEM IN THE BANK ACCOUNT !!!

  • Theresa

    Hey everyone! There is a way out of having them rip you for the $250. You used a credit or debit card. If you used a debit card it is easier. Just go to the bank and ask to have that card replaced with another that has a different number. Trust me that takes about 10 minutes. You get a new card in about 4-5 days.

    U can do the same with a credit card but you have to do it over the phone and it takes longer.

    If you have transactions that havent gone through yet they will send it through and either contact you or the bank and that can get straightened out smoothly.

  • Denise

    Further to my posts back on 6/3/09… I got a phone call yesterday from “my training rep”..that was going to help me download the software from oneline so I didn’t have to wait until my package arrived and get me started.. he wanted to know if I had a fairly good grasp of using my computer.. I replied “I program” if that good enough for you ???? .. dead silence..
    well are you using this as a new job, NO I replied.. silence, To supplement your income then he says… “I cancelled my order why are you calling me, I responded”.. no you didn’t that is why I’m calling you … Really I said.. check again I not only cancelled it I also called my
    credit card company and cancelled that card and reported your company as fraud so go ahead charge that card for all you want and dig yourself in deeper buddy…. You don’t seem to undertand he said to me.. YOUR account is active and we have the right to charge your card so it would be better if you just allowed me to help you start your account and get you working.. I laughed and then replied.. I have a sink full of dishes to do.. you need to go find someone else to bother, don’t call here again.

    And Yes I did report them as fraud and I did cancel that card.. new one with new number etc arrived yesterday

    As to the poster a few posts above this one that wants everyone to believe this is for real and not a scam… after that call yesterday and the guy’s comments.. I think that is proof enough, so for the poster a few above that says how legit it all is… uh huh and pigs fly !

  • Theresa

    I got you Denise. I did almost the same thing today. I had a wonderful conversation with a representative. I called them up and said “you just charged my account. Put the money back right now.” They don’t mess with me cause I have been screwed before and I don’t even want to talk. Just do it!!! I totally closed my account today. The last time this happened I just did the new card new number. It was easy and took 10 minutes. The bank was real nice about it. This one was a company that repairs ipods. My son set it up and they took the money before we even put the ipod in the box to mail it out for repair. But I have Google Biz to deal with as well. Put that money back pronto or I will fraud you. I might still do that. It was the same with me. I cancelled and they charged me anyway. They are a fraud. So many of them it makes you wonder. Now I need to find someoneto fix his $400. ipod without getting ripped.

  • felecia

    i logged in on this to sign up for the information 1.97 charge to account. it didn’t ask for an address to mail the information. 5 days later i received a charge of 74.21 to my account. I contacted the number that was on my bank statement to dispute this charge. She stated that an email was sent and there was a trail period of 5 days. ??? I stated “a trail for what, i had not given any address to receive any information why was I being charged for something that I had not received nor any other information. I was able to get my money returned to my account and canceled the so called membership. This is a SCAM. I did tell them in my phone conversations that this was a scam and that i would report them to the BBB. I think that this is the only reason that I got my money back. BEWARE of all online help sites.

    I signed up for the Easy Good Profit yesterday and I got their call this morning. they put me in some education program and chage my credit card. After I read this site, I call my credit card copany and report as lost or stolen card. Will this stop them chage my money?

  • Scams Begone

    I encountered this scam (www.los-angeles-daily.com/finance/index.php?t202id=82311&t202kw=) when it came up as a new window on my computer (I don’t remember clicking on anything that would have prompted this supposed “article”). I looked at it, and it just screamed SCAM for anyone paying attention, but it would probably work for someone desperate or who wasn’t paying attention. It does look official, sort of like a real article, from a real newspaper (which is a time honored direct marketing strategy, write an ad that looks like an article, send mail that looks like a real certified mail or FedEx package, get ‘em to open and read it), but here are the signs its a scam:

    1. There is not a newspaper by that name

    2. In very small grey type: “This publication is an article advertisement for Easy Google Profit.” By its own admission (and probably to keep from getting shut down) this is an AD. If you’re paying attention, of course its an ad. No reporter short of the Fair and Balanced Network would be that unobjective, much less trying to sell a product, and if they were, their editor certainly wouldn’t allow them to hawk a money making scheme.

    3. Notice that every link on the page has to do with a money making scheme and Easy Google profits.

    4. Notice that almost every single comment is about one or two lines, the only one that’s longer the author was able to post a screen shot (on what legitimate site can the average person do THAT in the comments section?). But look at the comments, both in style and comment. Absolutely everything is positive. No hint of negativity. Everything looks like a testimonial. Everything is perfectly capitalized, perfectly typed, no spelling or typing errors, no contractions, perfect English. Come on! How is that likely anywhere if the comments are genuine?!?! And no new posts allowed because of “spam”, so no one can add their own comments. Very convenient.

    Now, for those who say law enforcement won’t do anything about it, the government won’t do anything about it, there’s nowhere to report this to Google, not so fast. The FTC takes a very dim view on companies that don’t ship the promised goods within thirty days, and they take an even dimmer view on companies that refuse all refunds. If you’ve been a victim, contact the Federal Trade Commission. I’m not saying they act instantaneously, but the sooner and the more complaints they receive, the sooner action will be achieved. File a Better Business Bureau complaint, get the word out there.

    And yes, you should absolutely report the site (easygoogleprofits.com) to Google’s trademark division. That’s actually probably the best place to report it, actually. In order to maintain their trademark rights, Google has to defend them, and keep others from using them, lest their trademarks be cancelled. If anyone puts the trademarks Google, Nike, Sony, Playstation, Toshiba, McDonalds in their website name, they are subject to losing those websites INVOLUNTARILY. In this case, Google can demand the website be shut down, or they can file a WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) complaint for trademark infringement and after submitting its brief and proof of its ownership of the mark, after the briefing is done, WIPO can order the domain registrar (network solutions, go daddy, whatever) to transfer ownership of the domain to Google. It has nothing to do with whether the website is a scam or not, although that helps, the fact that they are using Google’s trademark and making money off Google’s trademark in their URL is sufficient. Google has to defend and protect its intellectual property, and nothing is more important than the Google trademark.

  • http://easygoogleprofit Same for me

    Hi, I was also scammed by these people. I got the los angles newspaper article that was mentioned above. I have since cancelled, and had no problems.

    I have had 2 marketing calls so far, but that could be beacuse I signed up for free surveys also.. sigh.

    I plan on calling back on Saturday again and tell them that I would like to cancel again to see what they say. If they give me another confirmation number for the cancellation, then I will call my CC company and just report my card lost / stolen

    Blogstorm first posted this posting 18 months ago, and the Google *** *** thing (it has many different incarnations) has been going from at least 2007 from my limited research.
    Below, I’ve listed ‘some’ hits to my website for yesterday, just from the google forums, not yahoo and answer.com forums, etc; just google. These discuss the current state of this scam from people who’ve initially assumed it’s a real Google related thing.
    Some of these Google forum Q&As have been going since last year, always on this Google *** *** subject or similar related things (acai, grants, security, gold, green tea, etc)

    A new one starts up every day or so from someone who’s just been suckered in…

    The thing is that Google, for all their professed annoyance with the scam and all their promises to do something, actually make a fair wodge of cash from the scammers. This wodge has at least 6 zeroes behind it, probably 7 or 8, and this may give you some idea about why Google aren’t more pro-active in clamping down…. Damage to their trademark is obviously less important than the cash they are currently getting – after all, I bet you still use Google, despite any name-dirtying going on? What is it, 85% of the search market or something? They just don’t care. Compared to the billions they make, a little trademark bandying is nothing, and I think that’s their attitude. If they lost half their search business due to this scam then I think they’d do something – until then ???

    As always, caveat emptor, and if you get caught, contact your credit card company straight away, file a fraud claim and get your card cancelled and start another with a different number. Then call the FTC, FBI etc.

  • katc

    The news articles all look legit. If you look them up, they don’t exist (some of the names are variations to make them look real).
    I did a double take. Thought it must be real if it’s in the paper. My first one came up as Sunnyvale News Daily (there’s no paper in Sunnyvale). Fortunately, I didn’t have time to pursue until I just went back and it caught my eye. That should have been the first clue. Sure looked real to me.
    Some of the others: Los Angeles Daily, Manchester Gazette, New York Tribune. Fox News actually has an article about the scam.
    I found this site before continuing. thanks,

  • http://none Silly College Student

    Sign…I also signed up for Easy Google Profit about 2 weeks ago, after being taken in by the fake USA Job Journal site. The language they used made it sound like NOT an obviously fake get rich quick scheme but something that you actually do a little work for. I saw the $1.95 shipping charge and thought ‘ok, now I’ll wait for the CD to show up.’ Then, I got a call a few days later saying that they wanted to enroll me in three different online money making services, including Product Resource Club, Sellers Lounge, and E-Tax Hotline. Now I thought, ‘crap, this thing is fishy.’ I quickly canceled my membership to the first two via phone, and tried to do the third one but their number didn’t work. Then I sent a message through their site and got a marketing email back advertising their services, completely ignoring my request. I replied asking to cancel my membership again and received nothing further.
    My account was charged about $68 a week ago. Then this week it was charged for another $10. The merchant’s name showed up as Online Market Systems, along with a toll free number. I would have tried harder to stop this but I’ve gone abroad to do some research and was busy/distracted. However, I will now call my bank ASAP to get a new debit card. Hopefully it will be easy enough.
    Should I bother trying to ask for my money back by using the scammer’s toll-free number? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

  • dailyartist

    Facts you can use.
    Under the law these deceptive con artists do not have the legal right to pass your financial information on to their other cohorts since they did not detail that important piece of information about the transaction when you gave your financial information at the starting transaction. They are required to get “express permission” for “each” and every debit they or their cohorts intend to make on your finances, and just detailing this important information in their terms of service “after” the transaction does not give them that legal right. Omission of this detail is deception. Here is what FTC has to say about “Deception”
    from Ftc policy statement on deception
    “Commission cases reveal specific guidelines. Depending on the circumstances, accurate information in the text may not remedy a false headline because reasonable consumers may glance only at the headline.33 Written disclosures or fine print may be insufficient to correct a misleading representations.34 Other practices of the company may direct consumers’ attention away from the qualifying disclosures.35 Oral statements, label disclosures or point-of-sale material will not necessarily correct a deceptive representation or omission.36 Thus, when the first contact between a seller and a buyer occurs through a deceptive practice, the law may be violated even if the truth is subsequently made known to the purchaser.37 Pro forma statements or disclaimers may not cure otherwise deceptive messages or practices.38″

    Here is what the credit card industry cautions businesses about.
    COMMON MERCHANT MISTAKES FROM http://www.shift4.com/best_practices.htm
    (1) Do not split a transaction up into smaller transactions. Doing this not only can get you in trouble with your Merchant Services Provider, but it can also open you up to a chargeback, as the customer may only claim one of the charges and not all of them. You lose money, lose product and get a chargeback filed against you.
    (2) Always get an authorization for every credit card transaction you are going to settle. Not doing so will only create headaches and lost revenue for you.
    (3) Make resolving customer issues a priority. If you won’t take the time to help a credit card customer that has a question or issue regarding a charge from your business, they will take the problem to their Issuing Bank. Excessive disputes can ruin your ability to continue processing credit cards.

    You as a consumer have the right to do Charge-back on all the debits that you did not give express permission for. You also need to go to your bank and file fraud or transaction dispute on each one of the debits which you did not authorize. This forces your bank to start a law investigation into that company’s practices and if enough complaints of fraud do start coming in against that company then their privileges to use cc card transactions can be taken away as well as it hurts them when they get a charge-back. Charge-backs costs the con artists money and will eventually get them black balled with the credit card industry when a pattern of charge-backs starts becoming evident. Also, it raises a red flag about that business with law enforcement organizations

    About CHARGEBACKS:
    Chargebacks
    While a cardholder has 60 days from the day it receives its statement, the Issuing Bank has 120 days or more after the transaction date to file a dispute with the Merchant. This is why you need to involve “both” the cc card org and your bank in each unauthorized debit with disputing the charge or debit. It makes no difference what the con artist says about how he has a legal right to debit your account –he will have to show proof that you signed something that acknowledges your understanding that that particular debit was going to be made. Oh, he would love to convince you not to go the charge back or file fraud dispute route and he does that in a lot of cases when the consumer tries to reason with him on the phone about the problem. The burden of proof that a business has proper legal right to debit your account is on the business. And a con artist will only understand something when it is snatched back away from him. If you read the con artist’s t/c on any of those scammy websites you will find that he says he will fight a charge back rigorously –he’s hoping to frighten you from per suing that method of getting your money back, especially, since it hits him in the pocketbook!
    The credit card industry expressly cautions businesses that they “should” get an affirmative agreement to every debit to avoid Charge-backs.

I cant be sure about the legality of all this but I am sure this is something you do not want to go anywhere near. I have had to cancel my cc and make literally 100’s of calls to cancel the other memberships that I was signed up for without my consent. Not to mention the money and time I lost. If I ever run into the guy behind all this I will punch him in the face.

    Hi Everyone,

    I got tot this website as I used google to find out if this was a scam as well. Anyway, we all know that there is no free lunch :)

    I actually found an opportunity through word of mouth and I signed up already. I will give the website address for you to watch the videos about the company and it explains the opportunities exactly to you before you even give anything at all. You will immediate notice that its for real. I ask only one thing in return: please email me if you feel that this opportunity is for you so I can signed you up under my membership number because this is the way I will benefit from your business involvement.

    the website is : http://www.melaleuca.com
    my email is samnow77@live.com

    Only if you looked the opportunity over and wish to learn more before you make a decision, you can then email me and I will help you by even speaking with on the phone or having the person who sign me up contact you. This is real and you will not get rich today. However, every month you could increase your income gradually. The person who will speak with you makes now 200K a year but this is after 2 years of working at it. I hope you will at least take a look.

    Thanks,

    Those scammers are everywhere (here too, just look at this “Jason” guy). And they’re desperate. They’re greedy, they’re self-motivated, they’re persistent, they know what they want and they know how to get it. They won’t stop for anything. Ever.
    As far as there are human beings walking the Earth, there will be Human Nature. Some of us are naive, trustful and others are merciless, the go-getter type.

    Along these comments I (have plenty time now, unfortunately) found these “helpful” scammer folks trying to get us into their endless crap:

    Gantman 12/04/09
    Max 09/05/09
    Sam 17/06/09
    …and the most desperate one (the poor guy either got sammed so bad he is actually trying to “revenge” on us, or he is actually the spammer’s CEO) Mr “Jason” has actually posted 12 comments since 14/04/09 and periodically comes back to check on anybody being lured (sucked) by him. How pathetic is that. Now think about it: Why would anybody be soo nice to give his advice, if it weren’t for some form of profit?
    In one of his comments (11/05/09) he (Jason) actually called us “idiots” and “you can kiss my …” always with the same NO-SCAM-IS-“LEGIT”-BUT-MINE” scheme on us. Boy, call that a not-wanting-to-find-a-real-job willpower!

    Besides the only useful advice on cancel your CC after being sucked, special mention deserves deano (18/04/09) who got it right on the concept of fighting back by hurting them where it hurts: In their pockets.

    Oh, and, Jason; Don’t bother replying on me. I’ll never know if you did.

    Hi, my brother had posted a comment on my myspace saying he got a check, a lil more that 100$, so i desided to see for myself and i clicked on the link. Lucky me i dont have a creditcard! So i couldn’t sign up for this thing and i went searching and found this page here. Now the thing that confuses me is that my brother really did get a check… It was a lil’ over 100$…but still…it’s cash. So he did make money, does this mean that it is to be trusted or is he getting scammed?

  • David

    Your brother got a check for $100 yes, he can cash it at a bank and they will give him the money. About a week later you will get a phone call or mail statement saying that the check didnt clear the bank and is fake and you now owe much much more than $100 to the bank. Its exactly what the nigerians do to people over craigslist.com

    is this site a scam guys need to no it looks sorta legit http://www.jamesmakesmoney.com/

  • googlz

    Anyone can make money with Google Adsense by drawing visitors to a website with popular information for FREE.
    Example: what hobby or skill do you have that you can explain with text and pictures on a website?
    How to:…….. fill in the blank. This how to disassemble a laptop… This is how to crochet… This is how to serve up a tennis ball… This how a car’s brakes work… and on and on..
    My own site got up to $175/Mo doing so, it’s rolled off since all this econonmic fuss, but carefully consider this as merely an additional income stream. OK, not a killing, but real income without screwing others, by helping others.
    Last year’s Google W9= $1700. Not bad for a couple of hours of setup work and tending.
    Time to develop another site and get another stream coming in!

    Really, carefully consider what it is that you enjoy doing and promote free info, traffic will force Google Ads to pay, it’s win-win. The more traffic a site gets, the more an advertiser will pay since they know they’ll get a quality, zero’d in click.
    Please consider your unique talents and turn them into $$ instead of looking for a “job” that you hate working for someone else. Best to get something like this going before you have no choice.

    Simple, little income streams add up bigtime. Don’t believe me?
    The opposite is also true: add up your current monthly outgoing $$ cable/satellite, telephone, internet, cell phone…. that’s the REVERSE of an income stream, those are OUTGOING streams.

    Turn your house upside down, clean it out, sell all the junk you don’t need on eBay.
    Opportunties stare us in the face every day yest we miss them in seek of the magic “Easy Google Profit”……
    REAL GoogleAdsense actually pays YOU to get setup, albeit 1-3 cents.
    EVERY penny coming in is one less going out.

    Life is short, enjoy!

    bueno, la gente debe informarse bien por todos los medios que verdaderamente es Easy Eoogle profit y sobre todo dar las claves de su tarjeta de debito o credito para no caer en el fraudo. pero por otro lado me gustaria saber que es lo que piensa Google sobre este “negocio”.

    is a scam also based on the Google reputation.

    They took my card details for a $1.75 charge, then when I ‘d entered my details, they then showed terms and conditions saying that I had 7 days trial and then they would charge $69.90 a month.

    I sent cancellation letters to America but they have ignored them. I think they’re the same company operating under a different name. Their telephone numbers are all dead lines. I have reported my card for fraud so am getting a new number.

  • Nathan Earney

    I would like to just thank the creators and writers on this site for informing people about the membership charges related to the google profits kit. I joined yesterday unaware of the digital agreements but cancelled today minus only a couple of bucks. There was no problem. The phone number I used was the number given by email for order confirmation. Though, I have to admit that what I learned from them regarding the use of google adwords, affiliate business and clickbank to make money on the internet was rewarding. Thanks a bunch.

  • paw

    No it isnt a scam after all. Try it yourself. I’m sure with this stuff, because i earned through this one.

  • camille

    Actually, I was thinking about signing up when I read what looked like independent news articles saying this was legit. These journalists and publications should be censored for misleading the public. Anyway, when I went to the site and they wanted my credit card info including the 3 digit security key I immediately got suspicious, so then I read the fine print below on how Google is in no way affiliated with this product. Question: why isn’t Google suing this company’s pants off for using their logo so prominently on their website? I’ve worked in many marketing departments and I know that a company’s brand, especially a big company like Google, is constantly guarded to protect the integrity of the brand. Google needs to be suing their pants off or it is going to look like collusion on their part.

  • Lisa

    Did anyone heard of Google Payout System? The purchasing agreement sounds exactly the same as Easy Google Profit; however, I could not find a SINGLE mention of it anywhere on line except for ad in New York Financial News. Hmmmm and how ligitimate sounding ad it is!:
    http://www.financialnewsny.com/google-canada/?t202id=3396&t202kw=retirement
    I would appreciate any comments on this one.

  • TC

    You know what Lisa,

    I reckon they’re all a scam. Is that New York Financial Times the real version?
    Don’t do it unless you’re prepared to send loads of cancellation letters, and report your card as lost/stolen and have to wait 14 days for a new one, .

    I saw the joshmadecash.com ad aswell as http://www.profitstudiolearning.com and they’re very convincing, but I reckon it’s a risk NOT WORTH TAKING!

    They’re very believable but the small print looks dodgy, and if you are stung it’s not nice. Then again if you can afford to take the BIG RISK and don’t mind if it all goes boobs up then tell us what happens ;-)

    If it’s reputable and a good company let everyone know, I don’t believe people above that say these work, as i reckon they’re working for the scammers.

    Anyway if you take the risk and win, well done!

    Did anyone get a Text message from this company, telling you to “text STOP2003 2Unsub”? I went through the first couple forms where I entered in my e-mail and and phone number but stopped when I got to the credit card info because I saw on a couple of forums that this was actually a scam. I did text back STOP2003 as well as a few choice expletives, and have not gotten anymore texts or e-mails. I was wondering if anyone else has gotten text messages from these guys and if it is possible that they can find some way to get money out of you through your phone service.

    (taken from http://scam-googletreasurechest.blogspot.com)

    Today I spent some time on the FTC website reading the lawsuit that FTC has filed against the corporation running the Google Treasure Chest Scam (and other Google named scams). Hope you will take the time to go read it also. http://www.ftc.gov/os/caselist/0923060/090622googlemoneytreecmplt.pdf
    It is very enlightening and certainly vindicates what I have been saying all along about this being a scam and just why it was a scam. I don’t know what the final outcome of this lawsuit will be but I hope these con artists get locked up and the key thrown away. From what is being alleged in the lawsuit the con artists were no better than a burglar that breaks into your house and steals what they can get their hands on.

    What seems to me to be so strange about this in regard to the mentality of the con artists is “What were they thinking?” Did they really think they could get away with such blatant disregard for the law? And another thing, why did it take the law so long to go in and take some action.
    I guess the con artists think that if they out-source part of the action overseas that the law won’t be able to reach them but they better brush up on the law concerning the Electronic Fund transfer act and regulations. The law can still reach them and they can’t hide–it just might take a little longer but sometimes that makes the penalty even more stiff when it finally comes home to roost.

    The counts being levied against GTC in the lawsuit:
    Count 1. Failure to disclose material terms
    Count 2. False or unsubstantial representations regarding income
    Count 3. False representations regarding affiliation (misleading one to think Google was behind them)
    Count 4. Violation of the electronic Fund Transfer Act and regulation E.
    (it seems that they should have gotten written authorization or similar pre-authorization
    for further debits to your account plus provide you with a copy of such. Also it seems that in the unauthorized debiting of your account they did not even have proper authorization to show to your financial institution to make such a recurring debit. Makes you wonder what other loop holes the financial institutions ignore. I would think that to debit your account electronically that the banks would need to have some kind of proof showing that such a debit could even be made. )
    Section 907(a) of the EFTA, l 5 U.S.C. j I 693e(a), provides that a ”preauthorized
    electronic fund transfer from a consumer’s account may be authorized by the consumer only in
    writing, and a copy of such authorization shall be provided to the consumer when made.”
    Section 90349) of the EFTA, 1 5 U.S.C. j 1 693a(9), provides that the term ‘- ‘preauthorized
    electronic fund transfer’ means an electronic fund transfer authorized in advance to recur at
    substantially regular intervals.”

    In numerous instances, the defendants have debited consumers’ bank accounts on
    a recurring basis without “obtaining” or “providing” a copy of a written authorization signed or similarly authenticated by the consumer for preauthorized electronic fund transfers from the consumer’s account, thereby violating Section 907(a) of the EFTA, l 5 U.S.C. j l 693e(a), and Section
    205. l 0(b) of Regulation E(a) I 2 C.F.R. j 205. 10(b).

    My advice to anyone who was involved in this scam and still having a hard time trying to contact these con artists to get their money returned is to copy the FTC lawsuit PDF and take it to the bank to show them how you were swindled. The bank has some responsibility in this matter too as they maybe should have required more proof that the debit had some merit or backing before they sent your money off to the con artists.

    First of all, the “news article”, if you read the fine print, makes the claim directly underneath the Heading Los Angeles Tribune News “This publication is an article advertisement for Easy Google Profit.” and in addition, the discliamer aaallllllll the way down at the bottom of the article states that there is no guarantee that you would even make money and that the examples are not typical, etc.

  • William

    I ordered a google profit cd but i never followed thru with the registration because it asked for money up front….luckily i used a prepaid card when i ordered the kit and my card has no money and my wife closed the account….is this the same google profit u all are talking abt.

  • sam

    WILLIAM – yes it is google profit that i am talking about, well done! you were lucky to be able to of cancelled your registration. It is a complete scam.

  • U Craft

    How in the world can anyone support this work from home scam from googleprofits and moneymakers.com. This is a total scam!!!. You sign up you pay the CD you will receive, yeahhh only $ 1.95. Which has no value information at all. The information provided there are commene sence anyone can pull up from the internet with out a charge. Now here comse the best of all – All of a sudden companies you never heard of or gave authorization charging your account for service you never renderred!! These companies should be taking to court and legal steps taking against them!!!

  • Truley

    If anyone signs up to this scam and then comes across this website, and you’re scared stiff about Google Profits taking more money out of your account, just call your bank and explain your mistake. They’ll block anymore attempts from this company taking out more money.

  • Jeremy

  • Suntzu

    Honestly, anyone who signed up for this and claims that they did not know it was how it was is a complete idiot. If you took time to look before leaping, you would have spotted the bold print that says, hey” we have to take this and that much money from you if you go past 7 days”.
    I wish you people would quit screaming scam this and that when they TELL YOU UP FRONT what is going to happen to your credit card and you still bite the bait. Here’s a clue, its not a scam if in fact they tell you that they are taking extra money from your account. It is legal as long as you AGREE to it and they tell you that is what they are going to do.

  • Suntzu

    Oh, I forgot, also if you are not able to claim mental insanity and they tell you up front, plus you agree, it is also not a scam nor can it be claimed one in court….next time read before you up and try your hand at making money online. Hell, go cut some freaking grass, do lawn work or something. Janitorial work pays pretty big now a days. If you want to make money but have no way of making it, other than that, stay out of the marketing waters, you all don’t have the personality for it.

  • Jeremy

    heh, they don’t tell you up front. Up front they tell you its free and you only pay $1.95 for shipping. They hide the disclaimer that it will cost money at the bottom of the page in the terms and conditions link, not at the top where you are confirming you read the terms and conditions.

    If they advertise all over the place that its free and then they put in the terms and conditions they charge you, then there is something wrong with that and its false advertisement. There are lawsuits [ending and google themselves said the procedures they do in this program are against google’s policies.

    Also, any of these at home type of jobs where they charge a fee is indeed a scam. I do not know of any legitimate work at home program that charges. So the fact that there is a monthly fee tells me it is a SCAM.

    I do agree that you should do your homework before joining which is why I did and found this site and others like it and did not sign up. I will never pay to sign up for anything. Even free sites or a site that only wants to charge for “shipping” I will thoroughly check out before signing up for.

    Again, this program does NOT, i repeat, does NOT tell you up front. They hide the real information is a small link at the bottom of the page while they have FREE posted in large bold letters everywhere with a $1.95 shipping fee only. Come to find out there is no shipping, its a download, so thats another scam within the scam.

    Your an idiot to think this is not a scam just because you read the terms and conditions and know that they charge. Just because you KNOW there is a charge does NOT mean its NOT a scam. That logic makes no sense whatsoever.

    If you think thats true, then I got a program thats just right for you. I will tell you its $500 up front with a $1000 monthly fee, all I need is your social security number, date of birth, and full name and I will get you started and you will be a millionaire.

    Obviously since I told you up front there is a charge, there is no way in the world this could be a scam now. So feel free to send me the info and I will make you a millionaire instantly.

  • dailyartist

    @Suntzu
    According to FTC these types of business practices that you are defending are not sufficient under the law.

    Here is what FTC states about them:
    Particularly in lIight of the prominent representations on their websites that
    consumers purchasing the scams kits would be charged only a small amount and that
    consumers were receiving a free trial of website access. the disclosures on the
    terms & Conditions” pages are inadequate to notify consumers that if they ordered a kit they
    would be enrolled in a negative option continuity program and to inform consumers of the
    terms and conditions of the continuity program . This is failure to disclose material terms a
    violation of Section 5(a) of the FTC Act l 5 U.S.C. j’ 45(a).
    In numerous instances, consumers were unaware that the scams were
    enrolling them in continuity programs and imposing charges on their credit card accounts or
    debiting their bank accounts in excess of the shipping and handling fee. In numerous instances.
    consumers do not discover that the defendants are imposing charges or debits in excess of the shipping and handling fee until the consumers review their credit card or bank account
    statements.
    The scammers do not obtain authorization in a writing signed or similarly
    authenticated by the consumer to debit consumers’ bank accounts on a recurring basis. The
    scams fail to provide consumers with a copy of any purported authorization to debit
    the consumers’ bank accounts on a recurring basis. A VIOLATION OF THE ELECTRONIC FUND TRANSFER ACT AND REGULATION E Section 907(a) of the EFTA, 1 5 U.S.C. j l693e(a). and Scction 205. 10(b) of Regulation E. Law states that businesses must get your written consent to have further debits made to your account and that businesses must provide you with a copy of such an agreement if you signed one.

    Ftc states that these kind of scams are deceptive since they are misleading the public with the “Google” name leading one to believe that Google corporation is part of the business which it is not. Even though some of the scam websites have a tiny print disclaimer at the bottom of their page stating that they are not affiliated with Google, FTC states that that is not an adequate disclaimer to counteract the false suggestion that Google inc is not affiliated with them. These types of Websites operated by the scammers for the purpose of advertising, marketing,
    promoting, offering to sell, and selling their products prominently use Iogos identical to or
    confusingly similar to the logo of Google Inc. and its Internet search engine. A deceptive misleading business practice!

    The scam’s use of the term “Google” in the business names,
    product names, and Internet domain names and the scam’s use of Iogos that are identical to
    or confusingly similar to the Iogo of Google Inc. and its Internet search engine create a false
    aura of Iegitimacy by suggesting that the scam’s are affiliated with Google lnc.

    Ftc states that these types of scams state falsely that they can make money for you and do not show any legitimate proof for that claim.

  • maronica

    I just purchased the $1.97 google biz kit and tried to follow there simple instructions. First if you don’t have a web site its no good to you, you can make one with google but read the fine print. You only get it for 7 days then its $79.95. It wasn’t worth the risk or trouble it took to try to navigate all the different things you can sign up for.

  • http://usajobjournal.com/job.php?arid=6A099254&gclid=CJml4sbr15oCFQOIFQodln3y2w Alain

    Watch out: “Google Kit”
    Their original website detects the location of the visitor and insert it in the text of the web page to add more credibility and that is called “false advertising”. Per Example if you were in Vancouver the title would be : « Vancouver Job Journal” instead of « Montreal Job Journal ». The text describes the story of a woman from (location detected) who just lost her job now makes up to $87/hour. She says in the article that only by following the steps mentioned at the bottom of the page and paying a few fees for registering you can make a lot of money. When you follow the steps it opens a page containing a form to fill in. At the bottom of that page there is a link called « Full Terms and Conditions » which hides monthly fees to pay. If you fill in the form without opening that link you will be charged by that company and a whole lot of affiliate companies. At the bottom of the main page there is a little « bogus » forum to back up the text of the main page. Try to leave a message, you will find the message at the bottom : « Comments Closed Due To Spam (back soon) ». This page changes often pictures, names but the story is basically the same most of the time and targets the same customers : « the unemployed » or people who just lost their jobs. My Credit Card Company is unable to supply me with any address of those affiliate companies charging me.

  • Greg dubois

    To jeremy, they do tell you up front. I am not sure which one you are referring to, but the ones which I have viewed tell you at the bottom of the page that it is a recurring fee if you do not cancel in 7 days. Why am I the only one that spotted this out?

    It’s right there in glaring letters. Now, maybe there are some that hide it, but i have seen at least 50 of these ads and they all have it written out in PLAIN ENGLISH.

    to suntzu,
    I don’t know if you read what I wrote before about many of these web pages, but they detect the location of where you are and insert it in the text to fool the reader and that is called “false advertising” to begin with and in my country it is actually considered as being fraudulent by law. If they did not fool people by making them believe that someone in their neighborhood was making that kind of money, most of all of us would not have fall for this. Have a little respect for the victims of this dirty little FRAUD who targets mainly the “unemployed” or “people who just lost their jobs”… and are trying to make a living…

    Have you ever heard of identity theft?

    I put my email in , but not my credit card . will I get spam email ? Or charged any way ? but anyway , go to the easy-profit google site and look at the comments . the names of the people are like “Tom” and “Sheila” and common ones like those , which is funny . another thing is that you can’t post comments , do to “spam .” haha!

    I have a question for everybody. I am trying to figure out if the actual “Google” could be involved or profit from this scam. Because if you remember the publicity we all fell for, it suggested to follow some steps but it also suggested to follow ALL the steps for the project to pay off. Now I am wondering if in one of those steps we actually registered with the real Google (Adwords, Adsense) and the other(s) one(s) we registered with those guys taking our money. If someone could remember in detail I’d be really curious to know. Because I don’t know if you realize it but it would be a “win win” situation for everybody (Google, those bad guys, the CC companies…etc..) except for us: “the unemployed”.

  • shims

    I am so embarrassed that I fell for this scam! I signed up to pay for the initial biz kit for £2.50 which was all I was signing up for and the cheeky b*st*rds took a further £47.50 out of my account a few days later.
    Not sure what to do other than contact my bank & get my account frozen and query the transaction and see if I can get any of my money back.

    Any suggestions please?

  • http://usajobjournal.com/job.php?arid=6A099254&gclid=CJml4sbr15oCFQOIFQodln3y2w Alain

    shims,
    I was told by the police to put all my energy in disputing the charges and not to waste to much time trying to investigate on my own. You can file a report to Interpol mentioning the web site committing the fraud. You can also file a report to IC3 in the US reporting the website again. Do not forget to put an alert on your credit file to avoid to have your identity stolen. One of those other things those s**m bags could try to do…They will get to them on the long run but it’s a matter of public pressure and the resources are not always there amongst the authorities. Frauds like those will eventually kill the internet market…The financial institutions are going to have to take their share of responsibilities in all that…

  • Henkel

    I ordered a Google CD on-line to teach you how to make money on the internet. I never opened the CD when it came and cancelled. It advertised the cost of $1.97. Then the following months we saw various charges. The only number that I got through to is 1-800-200-5473 and spoke with Rea. Tell them you want to cancel, just in case your bank needs to reference it. Don’t waste your time asking for a refund from them. The woman who answers the phone is only a pawn for the scammer. This is a 3rd party call center so don’t waste much time here. Best recommendation is to call your bank. Ask for the Fraud Department and identify the charges to your bank that you have found erroneously on your statement. The bank will have you cut up your credit card and will make sure no more charges take place on your account and will also refund your money the following month. Also the bank will start an investigation. So far I found charges as follows under these different names:
    GOOGLECHEST…$72.21
    A1 MEMBER 866-200-5472…$24.87
    SAFELOCK ID 877-5836011 UT…$38.84
    SEARCHCHEST 888-247-9239…$72.21
    POWERSALE 877-244-1121…$24.87
    WEBTRAINING 877-718-67 …$72.21
    GRANTFINDER…$24.87

    Hope this helps.

    I was almost a few clicks away from signing up for this scam and decided I better do a little research first. I found this site and ready everyone’s comments. Sorry so many people got burned by this but at least you saved one person (me) from making the same error. If it sounds to good to be true……..

  • shims

    Thank you Alain & everyone else,

    I have cancelled my credit card and logged an enquiry with my bank re the further £47+ …lets see how it goes!

    Wanted to say that I was totally sucked in by this SCAM! It was comments on this page that led me back to where I started. I read the terms and conditions and just about fell off my chair, I was devastated to the max that I could have been so stupid. Sad that a bad day at work prompted me to look at “get rich quick” schemes, and it seemed I was going to pay big time! Unfortunately for me the call number to cancel was not available from my country, but lucky for me my bank has a 24 hr help line and after much embarrassment at explaining my stupidity I was able to cancel my debit card (without closing the account) and hung up knowing the SCAMMERS wouldn’t get one cent from me. Its inconvenient, but a huge learning curve….sad but true…there is no such thing as money for nothing!

  • sue

    I fell for this stupid make lots of money in no time. I only lost $1.95 plus came a charge of $9.38 for something…I have no idea..what. But..I cancelled the same day. Makes no difference…the fine print says you agree to pay different people, giving your information to others to charge to your card. I cancelled my card and applied for a new one. That’s the only way. It was the same site as all of you went to. The only ligitimate site is Googles adsense and that takes lots of work. I am just too trusting like the rest of you. It’s a shame.

  • Tiana

    I found a link on a friend Facebook page that directed me to what looked like an article in a local town newspaper. I searched for the newspaper name and IT DOESNT EXIST! It even says “as seen on CNN, Money etc”. Guess you can even customize a newspaper article to fool your friends!!!

  • Gantman

    I’m sorry that everyone is having bad luck with this …… well whatever you call it. As I said in earlier posts: I cancelled without any problems. I checked out the CD ROM that they sent me and it had a bunch of stuff (some useful, some not). If nothing else, I believe that the amount of money charged is unwarranted. The most anyone should have to pay is maybe $9.99. I could stomach taking a risk for that kind of money.
    For those seekers of home business opportunities, a review site that I set up looks at 3 of the top affiliate marketing courses and rates them based on my experience and opinion. I’ve been making money here and there with affiliate marketing and I recommend it for anyone looking to get there feet wet.

    Tiana,

    I fell for the same thing, I was on CNN and saw the link to an article in the losanglestimes.com or so it appeared. It was a story about a lady here locally that has made over $5000/mo for only $1.87. It looked like a legitimate news story. http://www.thelosangelesjournal.com/?t202id=9237&t202kw=Adsonar-Foxnews2

    Stupid me I signed up and started reading the information. Which gives you step by step instructions on how to start your money making venture with Google Adsense and Clickbank. Something kept nagging me that there has to be more to this besides the insane charges that Google is going to charge you per click whether you make a profit or not. So I did a search on “Google Profits Scam” and came across this site and a couple of others in REAL newspapers about prosecutions on the owners of these Google profit sites charging over $100/mo for subscribing to their services.

    I went back and read the Terms & Conditions and sure enough, they are going to charge me $99 in 30 days and then additional money monthly. I quickly found the instructions on how to cancel. Called the number (stayed on hold for about 20 mins before someone picked up) and canceled my account before they could send anything out to me. If you signed up for this and decide to cancel, MAKE SURE YOU GET THE REP’s NAME AND YOUR CANCELLATION CONFIRMATION NUMBER. Don’t just take their word for it.

    Why finding something legitimate to work from home has to be so difficult and costly is beyond me in this day in age.

  • Pete

    deano’s wise words, lets do it, just – us :)
    Now this is how to deal with these scumbags:

    1)Search for “Action Mouse Mover” free trial download.
    2)Find one of their sponsored ads on Google. (They have to pay Google anything from $0.10 to $1+ per click)
    3) Set up your trial version of Action Mouse Mover by positioning your cursor over their link. Hit F2 on your keyboard. Add 2-3 sec waiting time in the wait box.
    4) Click on their sponsored link.
    5) Position your cursor over the “back” button on your browser. Hit F2 again and add 2-3 seconds depending on the speed of your internet connection.
    6) Go back to the first page.
    7) Set the repeat cycle to do this clicking for say 2-3 times (to check if everything is OK) If you happy with the performance start the program, set it to repeat every 5-6 seconds and leave your PC on over night.
    9) Hopefully they will be confronted by a huge clicking bill from Google.
    10) Pass this remedy on to all your friends and put these scumbags out of business.

    (Make sure “AMM” is active before hitting F2 every time by clicking on its tab in the task bar)

    Just wanted to share, I DID sign up for a program called google profit resource, sounds the same as the other program listed above. I can’t speak for that program, but this one sounds almost exactly the same, register fee $1.99, free 7 day trial, then I was charged a monthly fee of $69.99. I have been doing this for three weeks now. I didn’t immediately cancel – but the first week was horrible! I worked (actually studied and read and set up google adsense, clickbank, etc) for about 10 hours every day for the first 3 days. I thought for sure I was totally scammed or I just wasn’t getting what the literature was telling me to do, but I FOLLOWED the directions step by step, and after spending about $187 total, including pay per clicks, I actually got a check today in the mail for $420!

    One thing that is totally misleading, and I’m not sure where people are getting this idea, is that you only have to work a few hours a day to generate a huge income. That is completely false! I am a stay at home mom, so had the time to invest, and believe me, it is SO time consuming, also a little scary because, I think, you have to rely on your intellect and instinct, plus a little luck making sure you pick the right program to be an affiliate for – I am not working 10 hours a day any more (about 6-8 though) and am generating income off the programs I’m advertising for from the first two weeks, I’m becoming more efficient at loading the adds through google adsense and am better at writing ads so I’m seeing an increase in the money coming in. I am in no way affilliated with google, just a stay at home mom and wanted you guys to know this program, scam or not, did cost me money, still is, it’s a monthly fee, but I tried it, worked very very very hard at it, still am, and am making money. It’s better than selling on ebay, which I did for 7 years, garage sailing every weekend, taking pics, loading pics, listing on ebay with all their fees and Paypal fees, then having to pack all that stuff was more work than this (I was a bronze powerseller), NO MORE PACKING-I hated that!! Ebay was a no brainer way to make money, if you knew what to buy and I do, but the adwords, you do have to think and make somewhat educated decisions on what to advertise. Sorry this seems to be the only positive comment on here. So far it looks like I’m going to double my $400 check in my next two weeks. :-) I guess my suggestion is if you do want to stay at home and make money without having to fork out alot up front, sell on ebay-the only down side to selling on ebay is your office is full of junk 24/7, it’s very time consuming, and the packing is the worst part of it all. But I generated about $2800 a month selling, then spent about $300-350 ebay/paypal fees each month and spent an average of $100 each week garage sailing and putting $60 in my suburban each week to go sailing on -my big black burb is a gas hog, but it sure is pretty :-) So that’s my 2 cents.

    Good luck every one and I hope you all find work online that satisfies your financial needs.

    Pete,
    NOT a good idea…WHY? because these sites advertising those Google Kits detects your ip address therefore, your program will be clicking from the same ip address all night long and on the end the company won’t be charged a hell of a lot because all those clicks will be coming from the same ip address. But I do believe when you push for justice you will get it. Don’t be discouraged on short term, they will get those guys. Most important right now, file in detailed reports of what happened to you to IC3, FTC, in your case: Scotland Yard, Interpol and all those organizations regulating company trades in your country. Get in touch with politicians, that might help to accelerate the process and follow up with what is going on through all other forums from the States. Inform the medias in your corner of the world to make sure it does not happened to other innocents people. Use all the power you can have and definitely dispute those charges. Nobody should pay charges to criminal organizations especially those who goes after the poorest of society. Make sure to mention to your politicians to establish stricter regulations to banks and credit cards companies and any financial institutions who can not even provide you information about those companies charging you. Make sure also to put pressure on your politicians to establish a cybercrime unit amongst your police services to fight these kind of crimes. Never give up…

  • Dean

    Do not order anything from google profit.com or any other business where they say you get a free CD (plus shipping and handling) to learn to make money on Google for big profits. They automatically sign you up for numerous programs and you get reoccuring monthly charges on your credit card for these services that they didn’t even tell you they signed you up for. Suppsidly they send you an e-mail with informaiton how to cancel but I never got it. I’ve now cancelled at least 5 differnt programs where they have charged my credit card and I think every time I cancel one, they sign me up for another without my permission. It has been impossible to cancel all of these stupid programs they keep signing you up for. Stay away from any of these type of programs.

    This goes for free grants and other such “free” trials or CD’s. They are all scams that bleed you dry with $10 here $7 there, $30 there.

  • keithincali

    I’m in California and I got taken by this scam also. I contacted my bank after noticing a $47.50 charge to my debit card. They refunded the money to me but said if the company disputes my claim and has proof that I knew about this they would have to take the money from my account again. I also filed complaints with the FTC and BBB. Is there some other agency that deals specifically with this type of fraud that I should file a complaint with? Like the others, I feel pretty stupid myself. I usually can spot a scam but this one caught me by surprise I guess because it had Google in its name. I thought it was part of the company. I was just looking for a way to make some extra money on my off time and it seemed like an interesting thing to learn. I guess I should have known better. I hope I won’t have to cancel my debit card but if I see another shady charge I won’t hesitate to call my bank and cancel it. From what others are saying, it seems like I may end up doing that.

    I wish I would have read this sooner

  • tami

    well i hate to admit it but i got suckered into this easy google profit. fro a page about mary steadman….geez this is the lik from the supposed newspaper…
    http://national-news-gazette.com/?OVRAW=NULL&OVKEY=NULL&OVMTC=content&OVADID=27248983021&OVKWID=0
    the terms were for paying for ‘my money plan’ $49.84 after a 3 day trial
    and for ‘search profit system’ for $28.71 after 10 day free trial
    both of these to continue each month.
    i read the terms, and thought well hell i can risk that much and cancel if need be. but after looking over the info, then doing research which led me here i decided to cancel….i am not interested in getting scammed.
    so i had actually kept the original site minimized and tried to get back to the page to review the terms and get the number to cancel….which mysteriously would not open.
    then i got real nervous and got a friend to go to the original address (which i just posted) and then get to the order page and he copied and pasted me the terms…
    so i got the # to call-had a nice pleasant chat with the lady who answered(shelly) and she gladly cancelled, gave me a cancel confirmation #. didnt askk any questions and assured me my cc would not be charge any charges.
    BUT she gave me a complimentary access to the 2 websites for 25 days to view and if i like d and wanted to continue call them back…hmm i thought thats nice, but wait, now i am seriously thinking i should not click on them at all and stay far away.
    anyways when i called the # to cancell the answering machine answered as ‘ corporate customer service’, i had to wait on hold for about 10 minutes. the number from the terms is 1-888-673-3212
    after i signed up i got a page from ‘automatic wealth connection’
    and the 1.95 charge on my cc was from ‘money mastery’
    i hope any of this info will help someone else

  • John

    If anyone is crazy enough to ignore the time tested adage of “if it sounds too good to be true……” then at least use a virtual credit card number. Many of the larger card banks provide a “virtual” number that links back to your real card (Citibank for sure) because a lot of people won’t buy online with their real CC.

    You go to the bank web page, request the “virtual number” and can limit the amount that will be paid out, and set up an expiration, and even make it for just one transaction. that way, if the scammers want to go back and get more from your account, the CC number “bounces” and they get nothing.

    You may have to look for it on the web page, but its a really good way to be safe, and let you take a shot at something, without risking all of your credit card limit while you fight to cance.

  • mike

    Also, after cancelling, just to make sure, get a new card and cancel ur old one so they still dont try to charge u. No one is there to protect Americans anymore, how can a gov’t full of scammers help us anyways. Gotta DIY nowadays.

  • rick

    Is there a difference from “easy google profit” and easy google profit scam”? The reason I ask is because Yahoo’s “homepage” highlighted the story and told about a girl making big bucks. If it was not true then why would Yahoo and cnn talk about people making big money with it?

    There must be a difference or Yahoo and cnn did not do their homework before breaking the story.

    thanks for any feedback I can get because I am about to try it

  • flescorpio

    This is a major scam. I requested the original offering for $1.00. Two days letter I received a call from my debit card’s fraud unit asking me to verify a charge of $84 from a Beauty Supply House, not Google Profit House. I cancelled the card but the credit union says they can’t do anything until the $84 is withheld from my account and a claim from refund is made. This is absurd, and I will never participate in this type of bulls**t on line again.

    p.s. does anyone know how to contact Google Profit House directly? The 800 440-4397 is incessently busy and there is no known direct e-mail address to contact them…???!!!

    Looked up easy google profit and clicked on a link from a supposed reporter (Jennifer Martinez) at WKTV 13 in NY, NY who did a report on how she tried it and was easy and profitable however when I googled WKTV it took me to the real station in Utica, NY and there is no Jennifer Martinez in the list of Bios. When you click on (WKTV 13) weather it displays the weather in Sacramento, CA and when you click on home Jennifer Martinez is now Cathy Diaz. This fake WKTV lists underlined links in the report to easy google profit which takes you to some scam looking site wanting your info. It has the tell tale sign of being a scam by having the countdown clock in it—-act now before the clock reaches zero or you may be charged full price.

  • AlphaAnna

    Google Profit Club is a scam because when you try to get a refund they say that we ticked the box which agreed to the terms. The box has already been TICKED, so this is a lie to begin with.
    https://secureweb.secureweboffer.com/offer/go3/step2/?ai_sid=4207&ai_sid_key=rk7035d121&ai_sid=3881&ai_sid_key=x9y

    When you untick the box and refresh the page, the tick always returns, showing that this company are dishonest. They do not leave the box blank as this would mean they would be unable to trap anyone, as we would either ignore the box altogether or read what was written beside the ticked box before we place a tick.

    I cancelled on monday but they would not give me a cancellation reference nor would they send me an email to confirm my cancellation. The only alternative is to cancel my credit card altogether as my bank is unable to block them due to their set up.

    Children as young as 13 have been caught in this trap and lone parents who have been left devastated. As far as we were aware, we were only buying an ebook for £2.48. There was no mention of a website we can view, becoming a member, nor was there any emails confirming what we agreed to or the fact that the 5 days had expired and what they intended to do.

    Sorry, but any company that can deceive vulnerable people already struggling is nothing but scam. I wrote to the top guy named GOORU who like his employees, said we ticked the agreement.

    I have reported this to Google and Watchdog as everyone needs to be warned of their trickery and dishonesty.

  • Peggy

    @AlphaAnna

    Did you get any kind of receipt for ticking the box? The law is that business’ “must”
    give you a receipt for agreeing or ticking that box. Have them send you a receipt that shows you agreed to their terms, that is if you can get a hold of them .

    Here is what law says about how they must give you copy of agreement.
    57. Section 907(a) of the EFTA, l 5 U.S.C. j I 693e(a), provides that a ”preauthorized
    electronic fund transfer from a consumer’s account m ay be authorized by the consumer only in
    writing, and a copy of such authorization shall be provided to the consumcr when made.”
    Section 90349) of the EFTA, 1 5 U.S.C. j 1 693a(9), provides that the term ‘- ‘preauthorized
    electronic fund transfer’ means an electronic fund transfer authorized in advance to recur at
    substantially regular intervals.’f
    58. Section 205. l 0(b) of Regulation E, 1 2 C.F.R. j’ 205. l 0(b), provides that
    k’îplreauthorized electronic fund transfers from a consumer’ s account may be authorized only by
    a writing signed or similarly authenticated by the constlmer. The person that obtains the
    authorization shall provide a copy to the consumer,”
    59. Section 205. 1 0 of the Federal Reserve Board’ s Official Staff Commentary to
    Regulation E. l 2 C.F.R. j 205. 1 0(b), Supp. 1, provides that ”I t Ihe authorization process should
    evidence the consumer’ s identity and assent to the aulhorization.” Id. fll 1 0(b), cmt 5. The
    Official Staff Commentary further provides that Eslaln authorization is valid if it is rcadily
    identifiable as such and the terms of the preauthorized transfer are clear and readily
    understandable.” /t/. l 1 0(b), cmt 6.
    60. Section 9 l 4 of the EFTA, 1 5 U.S.C. j 1 693/- provides that ”! n lo writing or other
    agreement between a consumer and any other person may contain any provision which
    constitutes a waiver of any right conferred or cause of action created by this subchapter.”

  • AlphaAnna

    Hi Peggy, Thanks so much for this information which will be very useful. I received nothing, not even an email to say I agreed to anything, no receipt, no call, no reminder, no welcome to their site after they took the money, nothing.

    Thanks for you help and time in this matter. I will try to call them to get a cancellation reference and ask about the receipt. Does this law only stand in the US or for any country? I live in the US.

    Thanks again for your help. Kind regards, Anna

  • Jeff Delke

    OK, so here’s it is straight forward. There is no such thing as a free meal or easy money. In my younger years, I searched for the golden ticked that would lead me to riches, and all I got in return is holes in my pockets and debt to my credit. I was trying to work to smart and not hard at all. There is a thing called working smarter and not harder. But that only comes after you have put in the hard work to really know what your are doing. My favorite saying is “If you give a man a fish, he will eat for a day. But If you teach a man to fish he will eat for a life time.” Take this as a fishing lesson. Stay as far away as you can from the things that promises you riches, especially if they tell you to pay some sort of fee. It is like paying $2000.00 on your Credit Card to go to a conference for some on to tell you how get out of debt. duh! Rather dig down deep search your heart and find out what you really like, dream about it, and make it happen.

    While there are many SCAMS out there, you can also find those that are not.
    Your best defense always is to research the company if it looks to be of any value to you.

    If you are looking to start up an online business, you must treat it like one. I have never started a company without planning the business side of it. It takes passion, dedication and yes…WORK!

    Find the right education for what your passion is. Knowledge is POWER!

    I know you were interested in Google Profits and most of it is fraudulent….and the ones that aren’t are way too complicated…..

    Check this out…..it is starting to work for me now and I know you could use the extra money too. It’s only $27 bucks. This is “floating” me right now since I don’t have a job! (I had to do something with all of my free time…hehehe).

    My boy, Charles Smith, is “cycling” 10 times a day now! So it’s working and legitimate!

    @Jeff Delke
    These were supposed to be WORK at home opportunities.
    The problem is that there are too few of these opportunities out there. I am sure most of the people who signed up wanted an additional income for the work effort they put in (i.e. not a free ride).

    These sites were listed on reputable jobsearch sites (yahoo, Caereerbuilderetc..).

    I was mainly drawn to the opportunitiy to work from home. I was fairly sure all the riches were exaggerated but any additional income would be worth trying. Luckily I was not too desparate and way too paranoid to give out my CC info for the opportunity so they didn’t get even $2 from me.

  • sam

    Yes I just wanted to back Sutfi up, I have worked hard all my life, working and bringing up my children. I too never thought I would make millions, but it was offering a fair amount of money for a fair amount of hard work I never at anypoint thought it was a free ride, just an opportunity to work from home whilst I was bringing up my small children. I dont consider myself stupid nor idle, I saw and opportunity and decided to take it. Yes I should of investigated futher, but like thousands thought it was part of google and seemed legitimate. A lesson learnt, that this is a scam.. we are not the first and unfortunately will not be the last to be taken in. Thanks to this blog we can only advise people of the misfortune that we have had and advise anyone not to deal with these fraudsters.

    It is actually a re-bill offer!

  • Donna

    I just got off the phone with my credit card company. The reason I trusted it, is because it was a News ad on the MS Money page and you would be working for Google. Google shares are up around 442.00. I can’t see how MS Money and Google can allow this type of advertising, slash, news article can be on the same web site page. I read this page everyday. It talked about a new wave of marketing working for Google. That was the way I read it. So basically, these people are using MS Money’s Name and credibility and Google’s Credibility to suck people in to this link posting position that pays you from Google. This is fraud.

    Call your credit card companies and cancel your card and have it re-issued. The Federal Trade Commission needs to jump on Google for Profit and MS Money page for putting it out there for millions of Americans to read right next to the daily stock charts. It is across state lines so the FBI should take an interest. Lots of money is being syphoned from Americans under the name of MS Money and Google.

    Yes, we should have known better but, this particular scam used Google and MS Money to advertise. Who benefitted? MS Money accepted money to place an ad for a scam. This is fraud. Wake up America.

    Cancel your credit cards and have them re-issued.

    thank you very good

  • Alain

    Strangely,
    they also give themselves the right to reveal your information to “telemarketers” in their “Terms and Conditions”. When those Telemarketers call you they are selling you publicity to put on the internet. I was on a “do not call list” and I was called by a telemarketer claiming to be an affiliate only a few weeks after registering with Google Kit and just before I received my statement from the bank. Those guys really play dirty now… and with sooooooooo much arrogance…

  • Donna

    I have registered a complaint with security@google.com. I suggest that everyone who was sucked into this fraudulent company posing as Google, to contact Google security. Register your complaint about the company that mailed you the disk (GP-returns P.O. Box 2999, Riverton, UT 84065-2199). Cancel your credit card. This company (person) is using Google’s name to gain trust and credibility. It is fraud. There are no instructions, no one answers the 866 995-9812 number on the disk package. Do not install the disk in your computer. MS Money needs to be contacted, that was apparently a paid advertisment, not a news blast. The Federal Trade Commission and FBI need to grab this guy if they can find him. They are incredibily arrogant. Using Google’s name and logo on the MS Money page.
    Incredible.
    Have a good day America. Time for us to take charge and speak out.

    anyone have the program CD Easy Google Profit Scam that get me?

  • jan crisostomo

    Here is the website I found: http://www.newyorkgazettenews.com/index.php?aid=6675294&KW=Ad3

    It actually states that the kit is free, but when you go to the site, there is the nominal charge…but at the very bottom it tells you 1) Google does not endorse this program
    and 2)$79.90 will be charged to your card monthly if you don’t stop it in 7 days.

    What really bugs me is that the New York Gazette wrote this article, giving it a sense of reality and not a scam!

  • Benjamin Szucs

    My opinion of this is that it is deceptive because the system may promise to make you money but then how many similar systems are there that people have tried and haven’t worked. I am sceptical and cautious when it comes to empty promises. Many people market online to pull a scam if they want to and once they have got you that’s it. I don’t trust it, it’s easy get excited when you are promised the world for a cent or a dime, but when you have lost it then what?

  • mike

    What a big time rip off / scam . This is huge humiliation on Google’s part and a shame that they would be part of taking advantage of people in the most vulnerable of times. Make sure you check your credit / debit cards for ‘rogue’ charges. We are disputing our 3rd charge now and it’s all bogus company’s hidden in the sticks somewhere. I plan on contacting the BBB, attorney general, and major network news agencys about it.

  • Donna

    Hello America,
    I received this e-mail from Google….At least I think it was Google. I did report the scammers to Google security and got this response. But, no one has contacted me further.

    Here is the e-mail from Google.
    Dear Donna,

    Thanks for sending us this report. As you noticed, this company is not related to Google and is part of a string of Google money making scams. We are working to get these kind of scams shut down, but need your help. Would you be willing to work with our lawyer (copied) to provide additional information about the scam below? You are not required to help in any way, but we would appreciate any information you could give us that would help us take down this scam.

    Regards,
    Tu

    Good day out there in the cyber territories, I’ve been trying all day to get in touch with Google Profits Resource thru their “Contact Us” address, and the help phone lines that sent me overseas somewhere, although I can imagine the sweet East Indian lady is just trying to feed her family too. But anyway, just trying to get more information about the sign up procedures. I subscribed to the program off of a ad boasting support from ABC News, AOL, CNN, USA Today, MSNBC and others I don’t recall. I received the CD 6 days later, but it didn’t work, so I called the number on the packet, listed right under a big Google logo. Incidentally, I did go to my bank and cancel my bank card and ordered a new one with a different number three days after I gave them my old one to order with thank goodness. Maybe this is why I can’t get thru. Oh yeah, the website they gave me after the CD didn’t work is http://www.googleprofitresource.com. I am thankful for finding this blog site to voice my opinion. But man oh man it sure is tempting to want a program like that to work, I really think I could do good, if only to earn $25-50 a day to supplment a low income winter season. Any body out there need a truck driver.

  • G. David

    What does “awaiting moderation” mean?

  • rick

    I cant wait until they google fakers get there ass sued :)

  • Scam detector

    Okay here it is… DID u see the bottom where it says No more comments are able to be posted due to spam at the end… of all of them, its because every coment to show real ppl, they just did a different style of typing in each saying”Bro, YOU RULE” and other convincing strategys to make you tangled in the trap of SCAMS!. Find out a scam is easy, usually hard to believe pop ups are SCAMS because they are too clingy, especially when u try to stray from the page. Anyways they use the word ITS not a scam to make u tempted to believe, they also use a very wordy yet professional page, but TO AVOID the mix up, either search it up on google “Is… a scam?” and usually the most common responses will reveal the cloud!

  • Eunice

    Google Biz kit is a scam. This company claim that it is just for $1.97 but before you know what hits you, you get charged $79.95 each month for nothing. The org sells your name and credit card information to numerous companys and they just bill your credit card at randon.
    Google should not be associated with this fraudulent scheme and should not all the name “Google” to be associated with such.
    THIS IS HIGHLY DECEPTIVE. THE GREATEST SCAM ON EARTH

  • Gabriel

    Making real money takes time, effort, and work even on the internet. If you are serious about working online and out of your home. Go buy the book “4 hour work week” by Timothy Ferriss. It’s a great read and if you WORK for it you can have it to. It will get you started on how to do it for real. He has a couple of business, turned online and tells and show real examples of how to really start, build, and run a business. But it’s been a good guide for me! It still takes a lot of WORK, start-up cost, some know-how, and research, and a team of people to do all the steps. But I’m about to really launch my online business next week based on what he has shared in his book! Start the process now and plant the seeds!
    Best of Luck!

  • Gerald

    Good afternoon. My name is Gerald and I was scammed by these slugs. I have joined a class action lawsuit to put these slugs out of business. If you want to join me please contact my attorney at whaselden@kamberedelson.com

    His name is Will Haseldon.

    Smucks like this scam should be put in jail.

  • Carla

    Ok, I got scammed – I couldn’t get a person for 5 days to answer the phone – they claimed they called back. However, I filed a dispute with my card company and have to wait for the paperwork and will have to find out if I will even get my money back – I hear no, from others. Well, the clearly misrepresent themselves and I told them so…they actually told me they were reporting me to badcustomer.com. It’s a shame because they clearly do not tell you all the facts AND did you see the info they sent – it isn’t clear even if you did want to do it AND a friend that got scammed also got insurance charged to her account from Pakistan – so they clearly are using the cards to steal as well….unreal! I can’t understand WHY GOOGLE doesn’t do something – and how are they listing as seen on CNN etc……I asked for the clip….haven’t seen it nor did I ever get my kit in the mail…crock!

  • mike

    motherfukkers need to go to prison for it

  • Alex

    Wow, I’m glad that i came across this before i signed up for this scam. I was just about to enter my payment info until i decided to do some research about this google kit. I have no idea how they can even get away with this.

  • Erik

    Look, from any “xxxmademoney” page you see, it’s always the same 5000$ check with the same bank account at the bottom. These people actually make money for each referral they are able to pull with their little page using this webpage. The money maker is the referral itself. SCAM. Make money by making others thinking they can make money. It’s like “buy my book on how I made Billions of dollars” and the trick is to sell a book that says just that…

  • Dave

    What the scammers have done is terrible. But come on guys, if you are stupid enough to fall for this and give your bank details away without researching it first, you pretty much deserve what you are going through, I’m sorry, but all you people have done in signing up for this is that you are greedy and lazy. I can’t believe all you people fell for it. Obviously the scammers should be shot or something, but really, how could you all be so thick?!

  • Dave

    All I did, was I got the advert (which was a pop-up anyway so instantly thought negatively of it), then typed in ‘google biz kit’ in google and the top link was this webpage. Doesn’t take much effort to realise these thigns are scams guys. I knew within 3 minutes of getting the advert.

  • sam

    Are you bored Dave??? nothing much to do???? Well Dave, let me tell you, the two things I am not, is lazy nor greedy…. a mum of 3, running my partners business and studying! I think I can count myself out of your ignorant comments. I simply want to earn some more money. I dont consider myself stupid, and never at anytime thought it would be handed on a plate to me. I fell for a scam that thousands and thousands have fallen for. You, have obviously got far too much time on your hands, and perhaps you, yourself should get a job, instead of making ridiculous, insulting comments.
    We only wish that we could all be like you Dave, who has obviously never put a foot wrong.. never made a mistake… What a hero you are Dave!

  • Dave

    I do have a job thank you, a very good one at that. But to answer your comments, no I don’t think I’m a hero in anyway. No I’m not bored. No I have very little time on my hands, I’m actually an incredibly busy person. I work and play very hard. Like I said, I was on this site within 3 minutes of finding the scam, and I’ve just checked back to see if anyone replied now. I genuinely feel for you and others who have been scammed, but just because thousands of people have been scammed, doesn’t make it a stupid thing to have done – just that thousands of people acted stupidly. Everyone does it from time to time. Hardly anything in life is free and/or easy generally, and that’s partly why I find it amazing that so many people fell for it, without even researching it! I was unemployed for 4 months of this year and it has been, and still is very hard.

  • Do not be fooled

    The Google Cash kit mentioned above worked for me and for many other people, but results may vary by person. Also, keep in mind that I got the grant trials for free, but there is a shipping fee and some advertisers have terms regarding continued billing after trial expires if you do not cancel. Some advertisers require trial to be canceled within seven or fourteen days of the trial period while some other advertisers give you thirty days to cancel the free trial. Please see terms per advertiser regarding the specific amount of days required to cancel your free trial before continued billing begins. The grant kits I recommend usually retail for around seventy dollars. If you enjoy the products, simply do nothing. You will be billed at a discounted price, usually around fifty or sixty dollars at the end of the free trial period. By signing up YOU UNDERSTAND THAT THIS CONSUMER TRANSACTION INVOLVES A NEGATIVE OPTION AND THAT YOU MAY BE LIABLE FOR PAYMENT OF FUTURE GOODS AND SERVICES, UNDER THE TERMS OF THIS AGREEMENT, IF YOU FAIL TO NOTIFY THE SUPPLIER NOT TO SUPPLY THE GOODS OR SERVICES DESCRIBED. Thanks and good luck with filling your first application! T&C: By submitting an order, You automatically receive a 7-day trial to the Internet Home Business Kit. Your 7 day trial begins immediately upon placing your order. Once the customer’s trial is active you have 7 days to decide whether to accept Your Subscription. Prior to the expiration of the 7-day trial period, You may cancel Your subscription by calling toll-free at 1-800-497-4988 or 1-801-578-9020 (International customers please call 1-866-321-2728), or by writing to 1810 E Sahara Ave, Suite 1-341, Las Vegas, NV 89104. Should You fail to cancel Your Subscription within the 7 day trial, You will be billed $1.95.

    DAVE-Hmmm, thousands of people acted stupidly huh, lets see what the FTC thinks of it, I’ll be right back with some friends!!! Maybe Dave is a buddy of the scammers, or maybe Dave is THE SCAMMER!, Investigations are rolling now, IP#’s , fake names, it will all soon be exsposed! YOU CANT HIDE SCAMMERS, I have a really nice oak tree awaiting for any scammers I find out about, the crows have to eat too!

  • Dave

    Yes, you guessed it. No, ofcourse I’m not a bloody scammer, though I feel pretty scammed that I now receive an email every time someone posts on here. I really only came on here in the first place to make 2 points. 1) I couldn’t believe how many ppl fell for a scam and I thought that was pretty dumb. 2) I hope the scammer(s) get absolute hell. Please don’t take it all out on me. I’m entitled to my opinion and if you fully read everything I’ve written on here, you will see that I’ve actually been quite fair

    My wife got caught by this thing but luckily used a credit card that was near it’s limit so we were able to report the card stolen (basically was) and get a new number before getting charged. Found a good writeup of how the whole scam works here:

  • nisa

    I paid the 2 $ for this thing and after reading your comments I cancelled my debit card immediately. You should be able to get a new card in 5-7 days. It is not too feasible but worthwhile if you want them not to be able to get your money.

  • Ashley

    I thought this was a scam also I noticed they had a few typos on their web page. LOLOL. Not professional at all.

  • tammy

    I found out about this scam from WAFB channel 9 so maybe they should help me and everyone else to get their money back or at least do another story about it being a BIG SCAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!thank god we only lost $20!!but i dont want others to loose more!!i know how much $20 can be to someone i know its a lot to me it was my last $20!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!and im a SINGLE MOTHER OF 4!!!someone need to put a stop to this NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Holly

    haha, look at this site http://net-news-daily.com/3/?s=VC_Pop14n seems sort of real, then I looked at this site: http://www.joshmadecash.com/?s=VC_Pop

    If you look at the screen shots of the supposed “money” they made…they both have the same amout of $306.98. Just thought that was funny. This is such a scam, don’t do it! Donate plasma or something! you can make a good extra income doing that, and it’s not that painful…and it’s a good cause! My boyfriend and I go to the local plasma donation place, and if we both do it twice a week for a month we make an extra $480 a month, which is about enough for groceries a month!

  • Im Worried

    i only signed my full name, phone number, home address and email address on that google profit kit web site. i found this page before i signed any credit card info. will i be mailed a bill at home or harrassed through phone calls?? is there anything i should worry about??

  • PistonBroke

    I saw this ad. I am pist and broke. I thought this would solve all my problems, the ‘Messiah’ had finally arrived for me, my time had come to fulfil my every ambition, to venture into greener pastures arms wide open embracing the new life as I ran through the fields of green in slow motion, the soft music of success gently playing in my ears. This dream was finally a reality, life was great I was unstoppable…

    Then I remembered… I’m so broke I don’t have the $1 it needs for shipping!!!

    Turns out luck was on my side after all…green fields here I come…woohooo!

  • Jared

    k.. i jsut signed up for this before looking for anything as far as scams go… how do i unregister before they jack 146$ from me?

  • Meso

    I got scammed by this too. I even got a supervisor on the phone and screamed my head off. I never authorized any additional charges to my card, and no where was it stated. If anyone wants to email the guy directly, here is his email address, ScottB@pacificwebworks.com Pass it on to everyone you know. Someone needs to take these people down.

    that they can do this is sad and not on. daniel zane hertfordshire

  • Tee

    I also fell for this, unfortunately (for the record, I’m very cautious when it comes to this stuff, but this supposed oppurtunity just seemd different than other scams I have seen). I came to my senses about an hour later while lying on the couch that I should probably look into this. Nowhere did it say anything about additional fees until you had already given your info. I reported my credit card lost an hour after registering and reading comments on this site. I also plan on reporting this deceptive business practice to my credit card company and the FTC or the appropriate places. None of the phone#’s they give you work, so by the time you finally have it cancelled, you will already be charged for exceeding the trial period they only tell you about after you sign up. BEST THING YOU CAN DO IS CANCEL YOUR CC OR DEBIT CARD IMEDIATLEY. I WOULD DO IT EVEN IF YOU ALRADY CANCELLED YOUR FORCED SUBSCRIPTION. Why would you trust these people now who tell you they will not bill you in the future or possibly sell your info to other scammers.

    I do have a problem with anyone who critizes people who fell for this for being lazy or think that we somehow thought we could get rich for doing nothing. At most we are guilty for having a little faith in humanity, or reputable companies like Google who do little keep their brand from being used in this deceptive manner . Speaking for myelf and im sure many others, we were all willing and agreed to do the work and put the time into the project required to see profit, and I’m sure most never expected to see millions, but just additional income to help during these tough times. I beleive that is a reasonable expectation for your time and effort. If you take time to learn the system,post the links, and so on.., then how the hell is that being lazy. I currently have a full-time job as well in case some people may question my work ethic. I was willing to put the additional time in after my day job. These types of schemes are the reason you can’t trust anything these days, and will most likely hurt the honest businesses that really do want to offer a fair deal. Good luck everyone.

  • http://googleprofit.us Google Profit Opportunities

    Great information easy to understand and helpful, thanks for the contents

  • Scott

    Easy Google Profit is without a doubt a very high level scam. It is using a high profile name (Google) and the Google search engine team claims they are not part of this. That is crap!!!! They would be all over this if it were true. Don’t let anyone tell you different. I started getting cc charges several week ago from this place. When I called them @ 1-866-995-9812 to find out what was going on, they told me what this was. I told them I never signed up for this and to please give my money back and remove me from their system. I was told that this would be done and to allow 5 buisness days for the refund. About 2 weeks later, I received another charge on my cc for 10 times the previous amount. When I called the Google # back, I was told that my request was denied. I then told the idiot call taker that I was going to take this complaint to the Attorney Generals office and file a formal legal action. You cannot get someones cc and just start charging what you wish without permission. This was my 3rd and final warning!!!! I was then told again that I would get a full refund within 3-5 buisness days and given a confirmation # for this promise as well. I have had to cancell my cc and join a credit protection agency because of this. I am going to my Attorney Generals office first thing Monday morning to file a legal complaint and to my Sheriffs office to file Felony charges of cc theft and to regain my losses due to this incompetent company. My state allows for $ losses I’ve incurred from this matter. I encourage anyone else that has been affected by this high level scam (Easy Google Profit) to do the same. Good luck. Scott from Colorado 11-24-2009.

  • Christi

    I fell for it to help someone out. I have had multiple phone calls to them demanding my refund because I had returned and cancelled without use, received it, then saw another fee the next month for $99 in which they said they were Google Profits but that it was a “differenct cust. service” and this is separate. The rep then told me to look in the fees and pricing section to look for their # AND IT WAS NOT IN THERE! So she got her supervisor and the sup. said it was the “other” cust service’s mistake but they will refund me half. I now have to close my bank account! I’m livid.

  • http://www.pokajokers.com lord hood almighty

    number 1 reason why you cant believe the claims of google home working kits blogs/websites!! check this out and see for your self its all lies and scam artists
    check the photo then check the so called locations of the people in the photograph and then check the sites that advertise this scam and draw your own conclusions….

    http://www.nyguardian.com/home-business/online-careers-booming-uk.php?t202id=31605&t202kw=VCP_UK

    http://www.thedaily-news.net/finance/uk/?ukv

    did you notice the man and woman in the photo to the right? did you notice there the same but have different names? did you notice that these 2 sites are almost identicle?
    are filled with so called possitive reviews and comments but your not able to make a comment that shows up and your comments have to be authorised 1st b4 there even seen by any1 else online?!!! take notes these are the signs of scams!!!
    also both sites send you only to 1 other site regardless of the number of advertising links there was! and all of them go to the same site thats not even endoursed or sponsored by google its self and yet for a mere hand full of change you get the kit to make 1000’s in just 2-3 days….

    i tried this out and was shocked to find i was billed £50 from my bank after paying $3 for a instruction kit on this home job with google
    the so called kit never arrived and the refund period was long over b4 a realist test of the kit that didnt arrive could be made.
    no replies have ever been sent by the company and the website has since vanished from the web ;(

  • Patricia Allen

    Last year (2008) I purchased the CD for the $1.97 postage and never received it. In the meantime, the company (Easy Google Profits) began a monthly deduction from my checking account for $39.90. I called my bank and gave them the info to stop payment for future billings. They did but the next month another deduction was made for the same. When I went to the bank again, it was discovered that it wasn’t flagged because Google Profits changes some code they send to the bank each month so it cannot be flagged for ‘stop payment’. Long story short, I ended up having to change my debit card so they couldn’t access my account. The bank was kind enough to refund me the almost $80.00 after I filed a complaint and they researched it.

  • Roman

    GET YOUR REFUND! This is a scheme of two companies, both with a rating out of Utah’s BBB as “F”. After your initial purchase the opportunity to re-charge you is divided among two ‘billing companies’. The $69 subscription charge is from Google (Money) Profits and the $99 one-time charge is from Pacific Webworks Inc. That company had to settle with the Utah Division of Consumer Services in 2007 and has conditions including having to refund after legitimate consumer complaints and for legal action for receiving more complaints. You can see details of the settlement at BBB Utah profile on Pacific WebWorks Inc. I threatened action to both companies and after a lot of talk got promised refunds from both ($99 and $ 47.50). Please do not give up — call number on your bank statement and argue, do not be deterred, speak to supervisors. DO NOT HANG UP (they try everything including pretending the phone connection is bad!) Also file an online complaint with BBB Utah which they will forward to company and track the case until you are refunded. DO NOT BLAME YOURSELF… it is a well-devised scam. Fight back properly.

  • amanda

    Google Profits are scams and thieves, they say nothing about a monthly fee in their ad yet you get charged 47.50 every month, you try to cancel and they still charge you, this has gone on long enough. Goggle Profits should be sued for all the money they have taken from people, any lawyer out there who wants to take on this case please let me know and i will be one of the plaintiffs.

  • Mad and broker

    Google prodits is a scam, and when you call to try and get your money back all their operators tell you nothing except they can’t help you, they can’t give you someone you can understand, they can’t give you another number to complain about them and most importantly they can’t give you your money back. Ddon’t waste your time or money, for $2 it ended up costing me over $100.

    I almost got suckered into Google Profits and Google Profit Library. I went through the process and got my memberships this morning. Then feeling of “This is too good to be true” hit me. I searched out scam sites and caught on real quick. I was able to contact both and cancelled my membership after finding their sites again and checking the Terms and Conditions. Warning to the wary…always, always, always check the Terms and Conditions. I just saved myself a bunch of grief.

    If you are looking for biz with integrity… stay away from Google Biz and Google Profits = THIS IS A SCAM!!!! I ordered this back in October. You have 30 days to try it out and if you cancel you will not pay more than the 1.95. I CANCELED WITNIN 48 HOURS! Since then I have been billed $47.50 and $99.00 I called the same number that I canceled with originally and they said they had no record of my cancelation. When I found the cancellation # they originally gave me they said it really didn’t matter that I cancelled within the 30 day time as the $99.00 was a non-cancelable one time fee. They did say they would cancel me as of today but they would not be refunding my money. I do have my bank disputing this on my behalf and am contacting the Attorney Generals Office to inform them of this misrepresentation of the facts. DO NOT GET CAUGHT IN THIS SCAM!!! There are plenty of legitimate online business offers and ways to do business. INTEGRITY IS NOT PART OF THIS COMPANIES BUSINESS PRACTICE!

  • Jen

    I feel for this scam too because they showed a internet news article to lure you in. It makes it look like a real deal thing and when you see the name Google, which is a friendly name, you feel you can trust it. But let me tell you, I signed up got charged my $1.29 and immediately I realized I’m an idiot this is a scam. So I explored and found the number to call to cancel. I CANCELED the very next day and they gave me a confirmation number and everything and they STILL charged me $77.83 three days later. Where is that in the fine print? Even after canceling they continued to take my money. So I had to close my debit card account and get a new one so they can’t continue these payments. These people need to be locked away! And of course, I need to be more careful trusting what you read on the internet!

  • http://onlineprofitkit Ivis

    this is all a scam. It just happened to me . No one is willing to help. I’m very disappointed. My ceredit card has been charged twice. TOTAL OF $167.00.

  • Alain

    Ivis,
    here what you should be doing:

    File in a REPORT for INTERNET FRAUD to:
    -LOCAL POLICE
    (if they don’t take such complaints, they will redirect you to the right place)
    -Chamber of Commerce of your State Division Consumer’s Protection
    -IC3
    -*FTC
    -BBB (if you can track down the companies name charging you)

    if you’re in CANADA:
    -PHONE BUSTERS

    If you’re in Europe:
    -INTERPOL

    Next:
    -Cancel your Credit Card IMMEDIATELY,
    if you can’t,
    -REQUEST a reduction of your Credit Limit to it’s MINIMUM
    -Send a letter to your Credit Card Company to DISPUTE all the CHARGES explaining you were victim of Internet fraud.

    *Don’t do it over the phone because Credit Card Companies tend to systematically refuse to recognize a dispute over the phone (understandingly, because too many people (not to say A__ Holes) tend to try to abuse a system based on “thrust”.
    If your Credit Card Company gives you a hard time, file in a Complaint to the Ombudsman (check on your CC Company Website)

    Finally:
    -Put an alert on your credit file at the different Credit Bureau
    (Equifax, Transunion, ..etc..)…This way, you avoid identity theft…

    Good Luck…

    *Note
    the FTC is cracking down on these companies or the ones helping them but it seems to be a long process…

  • Alain

    I forgot:
    – Try to cancel with those companies using the phone number appearing on your bill
    (chances are that they will but they will still charge you anyway)

    – put your name on a “do not call registry”
    (those are often connected to fraudulent telemarketers and Real Estate Scams)

  • Migo

    Hey ya?? I see alot of disappointed people!!! I don’t understand by you saying that google profit is a scam?? I actually did this about 2 months ago and right now I got $13,000 in the bank.. All you have to do is order your kit, when you get it, read it carefully… I’m getting money so I don’t have to help you people, but I will help if you ask.. my email is lilspade4@yahoo.com….

  • T In Texas

    I came across the Google Profit website today, December 27, 2009. It sounded too good to be true. So, before submitting my credit card information I decided to google the company name to see if any ‘Scam’ notifications came up. They most certainly did. I quickly went back to the page where you put your information in, and deleted it all and clicked off of the website. Who has money to lose in these tough economic times? As of today, the terms and conditions are: $1.99 shipping fee, and if you don’t cancel within 3 days (yes, now the cancelation period is 3 days), then you automatically enter into an agreement to pay $77.00/month. But…there is a “one time initial fee of $144.00″ that is non-refundable no matter what.

    Originally, I thought, well….sometimes you have to invest a little to make money, but I am glad that I read this blog and prevented wasting my hard earned money at all. Thanks.

    Hi!

    I am broke so I got pulled into this scam too. I knew it was a scam, but I found the advertisement on http://www.Time.com. Time is a trusted site for news and a partner of CNN. Why would such a credible webiste allow to run these adds? upon damage, can’t you sue time and CNN too?

    I bought the two $1.92 stuffs few minutes ago. Now, I’ll check the cd and cancel my subscribtion, and will let you know the details on CD.

    There should be people’s union against scams. I hate this.

    Thank you all.

    It’s hard to say making money from google is a scam or not. I am always before joining any site, most of these programs have monthly charge a few days after you join.

  • Rick

    I signed up just to see what they were selling, $1.95 was worth it to me. Now I am going to make about 1000 copies of the CD they sent me and mail them all back to them via regular mail and fill up their P.O. Box.

  • Charles Grover

    This very thing happened to me, i never got the kit, and my money was never returned. Even when i asked for another one to be sent to me, they said that they would do it, but charge me for the disk. Then i just told them to cancel. I gave up trying to get my money back.

  • Amry

    “Google Profits” is a total scam!! I signed up with them back in July 09. They charged me for the cd,also gave my information to a free dinner membership, free shopper discount,and they all charged me monthly fees. I then had to call each business individually cancel. My worse head ache is “Google profit” which is now “Internet profit” they charged me $99.00 first month. After calling and was directed to so many different pepople they finally settled on refund me back $49.60. Now, in January they ar charging me $47.50 plus an out of state charge. I am waiting for a refun. I have emailed BBB. I just want to get the message across that it is a SCAM.

  • ryan

    i am a victim of this too…i saw an add that says $1.99 to register, so i did. the next thing i was charged $78.14, so i searched for their number and finally found one scam report that suggested a company number. i called and they promised to return the money which they did the same day. i told the agent to “Cancel All my account” and he said yes! so i was not worried at all. it was last year october. two weeks ago i checked my credit card statement and i saw that i was charged 28.18 by two companies!!!

    I called jan. 15, 2010. they promised cancel my account and refund the to 28.18. so i waited. after seven days of waiting, i called again (jan. 22, 2010) and was told that there was a problem with their system and that their old manager was kicked out ( which is not my concern at all!) so i said okey…

    jan. 27 i called again and they promised me again…same old story

    jan. 29 i checked my credit card and was surprise to see that i was charged again!!! so i called, talked to several agents that day and finally decided to talked to the manager. we talked and told me that when i signed up i agreed to be A PART OF THEIR TWO COMPANIES that’s why i was charged again and again!

    to make the long story short he cancelled all my account and promised to refund the money the same day. i was thankful that finally it’s over!!!

    today i checked my credit card statment again and saw that i was charged again???!!!! WTH!!! i called and their office is close…

    IT’S A SCAM….SCAM…SCAM….

    Its really sad how many people are searching the web for ways to make money because they are so desperate for work; makes me angry that people like that scam them. Its worse than stealing in my opinion and I hope they throw the book at them.

    @gregw2 There is a new work at home scam using a fake CNN news website:

      Thanks John.
      It is good information. I am surprised that Kevinsjourney [dot] com and Googleincome [dot] info were not on the list. They seem to be related.
      They are now using email contacts in Craigslist to con people with their trash. Just Google Kevin Hoeffer and you will find some interesting reads.
      Thanks again for the link.

  • http://EasyHomeProfits/Treasurechest Stacy

    This website is a complete scam! It supposedly says you have 4 days free trial, but they don’t tell you they charge you 68.00 a month! It said that it was only 2.97 to sign up to post blogs! Don’t try this site, they will rip you off! It also made my bank account go NSF! I am seeking the proper authorities to turn these guys in, and if you’ve had a bad experience with them, I advise you to do the same.

  • http://www.freeworkathomereview.com Jason

    Hey Stacy, there has already been a lawsuit against these guys and quite a few other related sites… it’s just a matter of time before new ones pop back up on the internet though.

    You can see one of the lawsuits at http://abcnews.go.com/Business/google-sues-stop-work-home-scams/story?id=9279817

  • http://www.hornydevildating.com Jane Jones

    It’s hard to believe how many people continue to get sucked in by these scams. If it was so easy to make thousands for doing next to nothing why would you tell people about it? You’d be doing it yourself, and if you run out of time employing other people to do it so you make yet more profit. All of this “I made a fortune and you can too” is so blatently obvious and needs filing with all of the nigerian 419 emails.

  • Dennis

    I got scammed by “My home kit” which sives people a way to earn hundreds of dollars a day by posting links on the internet. They ask for 2.95$ the first day then after a couple of days they charge 79$. I was lucky to get out within a couple hours of the incident by closing my card by phone with my bank. They have several addreses in Las Vegas and their contact information is fake. Here is a phone number that called me. 407-404-6804. I believed I recieved from them. The line was silent and the only thing I heard was an eerie female voice saying goodbye!. I tried calling back to unsuscribe from their offer and get my 2.95$ back but with scammers their phone network is “down”

  • helen

    Bill Jr,The most important consideration, in my opinion, is to have your surgery performed at a center of excellence where theres a team that does this procedure often (weekly, at least). This means that they will have had a chance to perfect their craft, and will understand how to approach complications, should they arise.

  • http://danielwhite-blog.blogspot.com Daniel White

    If only people weren’t lazy and did their research they wouldn’t be getting scammed by anything or anyone. :)

  • http://raief.com gregw2

    @Daniel White,
    Not true. These systems are created by marketers and sales people that know how to push the right triggers to get people to buy into them. Sure, most realize that they have been had after a very short while but it is already too late they have given out their financial information, email, and have little recourse for a refund, except to file a chargeback through their credit card company.

    It would be nice if it was so easy for everyone to detect these scams. That could be a great plugin for web browsers and search engines. Someone could make a lot of money from that little piece of software, if they developed it.

    A program that gave a fraud alert based on information gathered from the BBB, and reputable complaint sites. Of course there are legitimate businesses and offers online and offline that get complaints so the software or alert system would have to be sensitized to rule these out.
    Just a thought.

    Getting back to your remark Daniel:

    Many of the people that get caught by these scams are unemployed, retired, or trying to supplement their incomes. And most are not aware of the deceitful websites and blogs that are perpetuating these felonious crimes. The only people that are aware are Internet savvy, so, to just say that people are lazy is pretty lame, asinine, pathetic, and very ignorant on your part.
